Dr. Athena de Brouwer
Dr. Athena grew up on a farm just outside Blenheim, and has lived here all her life. She attended the University of Western Ontario, graduating in 2011 with an Honours Specialization in Medical Sciences. She went on to the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at Western to study dentistry. She completed her DDS degree in 2015 and graduated as class valedictorian.
She immediately returned to Blenheim in order to practice under her mentor and our practice founder, Dr. Mark Hare, who inspired her to become a dentist by making her childhood dental visits so positive.
Dr. Athena has a special interest in orthodontics, and has had extensive training at International Straightwire, the Pankey Institute and other leading orthodontics institutions. She has also taken continuing education in full mouth rehabilitation and Invisalign treatment. She’s a member of the Ontario Dental Association.
Outside the office, she spends as much time as possible in Rondeau Provincial Park biking, swimming, and enjoying nature. She and her husband love to travel and try new food.
