Dr. Jessica Kudlats was thrilled when she opened Leaside Dentistry Family Practice in 2011. It was a combination of her love for people, dedication to the sciences and passion for art that she chose dentistry as a career path after graduating with distinction from McGill University with a Bachelor of Science degree. In 2002, Dr. Kudlats obtained her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Toronto. Upon completion she was awarded the Barry Korzen Endodontic Award for her excellence in performing root canal therapies on patients. Before entering private practice, Dr. Kudlats completed a one year residency at Sunnybrook Hospital, providing general and emergency dentistry to all patients. It was there she honed her skills in emergency dentistry, oral pathology and oral surgery. She had the opportunity to assist in many maxillo-facial surgeries, giving her a greater understanding of facial aesthetics and its relationship to creating pleasing smiles. She also helped care for Native Children in Northern Ontario on several occasions, performing all aspects of dentistry.
Dr. Kudlats is a member of the prestigious Toronto Crown and Bridge Study Club. She regularly attends continuing education courses each year and is committed to stay informed and trained in the latest scientific techniques to provide the best possible quality of care to her patients. She is also a member of the Ontario Dental Association, Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity, and the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario. She has experience in all disciplines of dentistry with an emphasis on children’s dentistry, cosmetics, root canal therapy and implants.
Since graduating, Dr. Kudlats celebrated her marriage and the birth of her twins, Coby and Jordyn. When she is not at the office or playing with her twins, she enjoys cooking and working out. She prides herself on donating to multiple fundraising events and being involved in numerous charities across the city. Dr. Kudlats enjoys balancing work and family and feels her patience is a true reflection of this relationship.
