Meet Dr. Dumore

Tim Dumore, Winnipeg OrthodontistTim 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.

Winnipeg Orthodontist

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.

Rockstar Orthodontist?

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.

Experienced 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).

Charitable Orthodontist

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.

Family Orthodontist

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.

Our Technology

3D Images & Printer

In most offices, ‘impressions’ or ‘molds’ are taken of your teeth. Instead, we have invested in iTero scanner technology so that very accurate computer models are made of your teeth! We are the first to use this in Canada! These models can be printed with our 3D printer, one of a handful in the entire country. In fact, for a majority of procedures, you won’t experience any ‘goop’ in your mouth.

Our xray machine takes 3D images of your teeth, with significantly reduced exposure levels. This type of xray machine is less common in orthodontic offices but we value the investment we have made to allow us to obtain more complete information for our patients.

Read this article printed in the Orthodontic Practice magazine on our 3D printer!

Digital X-rays
X-rays are a primary tool for early identification of orthodontic problems. Detecting issues with x-rays before they become problematic can save you money in the long run. Early detection can help prevent the need for more extensive, expensive procedures or surgeries. X-rays are primarily used to detect:
•  Internal tooth decay
•  Cysts (fluid filled sacks at the base of your teeth)
•  Tumors, both cancerous and non-cancerous
•  Impacted teeth
•  Teeth that are still coming in

At Dr. Tim Dumore & Team, we use digital x-rays, which have several advantages over traditional film based x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with 1/5 of the radiation that you would receive from traditional x-rays. The worry of exposure to excess radiation is eliminated.

Large on-screen x-rays make patient communication more effective. The immediate observation of the images on the screen allows us to discuss your orthodontic health quickly and accurately.

Digital radiography has greatly enhanced the practice of dentistry. It allows the patient and the doctor to see images of the teeth in higher resolution on a large format for easier detection of problems, all while decreasing the radiation exposure to the patient. The process we use further defines the radiograph, resulting in clinically meaningful images that are sharp, detailed and rich in contrast.

Images are available instantly after exposure, eliminating the wait and effort spent developing and mounting x-rays. If an image needs to be retaken, it can be done immediately. Digital format also allows us to send and receive your images electronically, allowing for a faster consultation with your dentist.

The Dumore Difference

At the orthodontic practice of Dr. Tim Dumore & Team, we thrive on providing up-to-date orthodontic care and treatment options to our patients. Even more, we thrive on developing friendships with them and their families. Dr. Tim Dumore and our staff cheer on patients as their treatment goals are achieved. We happily celebrate with them on the day that their braces come off. Orthodontics is very much a team effort in which, together, we strive to create straightened teeth and a beautiful smile.

We want you to be actively involved in your orthodontic treatment. With your first exam, we will talk about your goals and discuss the treatment options for achieving them. Based on what we decide is the best path, we will work together to develop an individual treatment plan. At no time will you be left out of this process. We want you to be an active participant and make educated decisions about what is right for you and your situation. We would like you to always feel comfortable discussing any concerns with us that arise during the treatment process. We will immediately address those concerns and develop solutions.

From the moment you enter our practice, you will feel comfortable. Our waiting area offers a complimentary coffee, chocolate and cappuccino machine, as well as current magazines, a gaming center and free Wi-Fi. If you’re here for an appointment, we have a brushing station.

Our practice uses state-of-the-art technology to serve you best. Thanks to our digital tooth scanner, comprehensive diagnostic records, and an in-house CT scanner, our patients don't even have to deal with typical messy impressions!

Our patients are provided with complimentary brushing and orthodontic supplies including a free Sonicare™ toothbrush when braces are placed. Additionally, we have an open-concept clinic, where family members and parents are welcome to view the treatment process.

For our younger patients, we have created a rewards program called Timbucks Rewards. Rewards are given to patients who show good brushing between visits, have no broken appliances and are on time for their appointments. Our patients can then cash in these Timbucks for prizes or gift cards!

We look forward to meeting you, getting to know your orthodontic treatment needs and goals, and working with you to create a stunning smile. Treating patients from Headingley, Stonewall, and neighboring areas of our Winnipeg, MB orthodontic clinic, Dr. Tim Dumore & Team welcome you to our practice. Please call for an appointment, today.
