Meet Dr. Paul Lefebvre, RN, DMD

Making a Difference

Dr. Lefebvre (Le-fave) became a nurse before going into dentistry. While working as a nurse in emergency and acute care, he realized he wanted to go back to school to learn more.

Dr. L knew he wanted to stay in the health care field, and dentistry allowed him to take care of his patients right away.

I wanted to make a difference looking after people. I love seeing their satisfaction when they feel good about their smile.”

A Comprehensive Education

Dr. L was born in Whitehorse, Yukon and was raised in Kingston. He received his registered nurse qualification from St. Lawrence College. After deciding to become a dentist, Dr. L moved away to attend the University of Manitoba, where his wife is from.

He enjoyed the small class size offered at the school. While there, Dr. L received guidance from his mentor, Dr. Vander Velden in Peterborough, who helped him learn to expect the intensity of the workload.
