Dr. Ian Dickinson
Born and raised in Vancouver, Dr. Dickinson graduated in 1977 from the University of BC Faculty of Dentistry. He moved at once to Penticton and has practiced dentistry in this city since then. Taking care of every member of the community through our dental services and continuing to take education courses are two high priorities for Dr. Dickinson. Every year, he takes many courses both locally and abroad to ensure that his techniques and knowledge (as well as the skills of his staff) are always current. He has recently completed all nine levels of the Kois Advanced Dentistry Course at the Kois Center in Seattle, Washington. Life rounds out at home with marriage, a vineyard and two dogs, but his superb staff and the local Kiwanis Club keep him on the run.
Born and raised in the Okanagan Falls area, Lorna graduated from Comosan College in Victoria in 1994 with a degree in dental hygiene. She has been putting her excellent hygiene skills to work for Dr. Dickinson’s clinic since she graduated. All of our patients love her gentleness and caring demeanour. Lorna enjoys downhill skiing, hiking and horseback riding. She maintains an acreage outside of Kaleden with her husband and two children. She loves relaxing with her family, dogs and horses.
Maria is the glue that holds this office together. After growing up in the South Okanagan area, she graduated as a certified dental assistant in 1982. She is the friendly face that all our patients look for when they enter our practice. Both the staff and patients have relied on her quiet, professional manner since she joined Dr. Dickinson in the opening of the practice in 1990. Maria enjoys staying active. She participates in various outdoor activities and loves experiencing new places… or travelling to old favourites!
