Dr. Tim Dumore
Tim Dumore, was born in Winnipeg and grew up in St. James. He attended Hedges Junior High and John Taylor Collegiate. After high school, he obtained his bachelor of science and completed his dental school training at the University of Manitoba in 1991.
Four years of general dental practice with the Canadian Armed Forces in Cold Lake, AB, proved to be excellent preparation for the three-year orthodontic residency Dr. Dumore served at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Dumore has practiced as an orthodontist in Winnipeg since 1998 and our office has been in its current location since September 2000.
Dr. Dumore often thinks about being a rock star. However, he is unable to play any musical instruments and has a complete lack singing talent, so a career in music seems remote in this lifetime. As a result, he has committed himself to being an outstanding orthodontist.
Professionally, he has served with the Canadian Association of Orthodontists, the Midwestern Society of Orthodontists, and the Manitoba Orthodontic Society, and has acted as the chairman of the Manitoba Dental Association Annual Convention Committee. He is a co-director of the Winnipeg Progressive Dental Study Club, an affiliate of the Seattle Study Club, which focuses on interdisciplinary dental care.
Dr. Dumore attends numerous continuing education courses each year and his team has accused him of being a "CE junky" a title he wears proudly. To help others in their quest to become orthodontists, Dr. Dumore has been an instructor at the University of Manitoba graduate orthodontic program since 1998.
Finally, Dr. Dumore is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, having passed the first re-certification exam in 2008. He is also a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists (Canada).
In 2012, Dr. Dumore was a member of a team of five dentists who travelled to Kampala, Uganda, to provide dental care to children at the Kamwokya Primary School. The need for dental services for these children remains high, and we hope to return in the future. Dr. Dumore is a member of the board of the Mondetta Charity Foundation. If you are interested in sponsoring a child at the school, please contact Dr. Dumore for more information.
Dr. Dumore has been married to his wife Jennifer since July 29, 1989, a date he has inscribed inside his wedding band, so he'll never forget! They have three children—Thomas, Lucas and Danica—two dogs, and two pet rats. In his leisure time, Tim enjoys doing just about anything with his family, including time at the cottage, skiing and traveling. As well, he attempts to stay fit through training and biking, though an equal affinity for cooking and red wine don't help in that regard!
Dr. Dumore is proud to be involved in the community and looks forward to meeting with you.
