Dr. Kate Kerr-Lawson graduated from Dentistry in 1991 from the University of Western Ontario. She had always dreamed of living in a small town near water, with the ability to practice all aspects of dentistry.  She moved to Kincardine with her husband upon graduation and worked as an associate in Chesley, Ontario for 3 years before having the opportunity to work at Lakeview Dental Services.

In 1996 she became a full partner with Dr. Hickling and has continued to do all aspects of general dentistry in this setting.  Kate offers hospital dentistry to patients who require a general anaesthetic for extraction of wisdom teeth, fillings and extractions.   She is also, after much study, placing dental implants( since 2005) for patients that have lost a tooth, or require implants to hold their denture in place.

When Lakeview Dental was selected by the Ontario Dental Association  as one of the model offices in the province, Kate had the opportunity to participate in a workshop that produced a “ Best Practices” manual for Ontario dentists.  She has been a council member of the ODA and has served as President of the local dental society. Dr. Kerr-Lawson stays active with cycling, skiing, and yoga but mostly she enjoys time with her family.
