Meet K Ford Moore DDS, FRCD(C)
ORAL & MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY
Dr. Moore’s Background
I was born in Toronto, raised in various places in Ontario and graduated as an Ontario Scholar from high school in Toronto. I attended the University of Toronto. I took Science, then Dentistry and graduated with honours in 1976. I completed a Dental Internship at Toronto General Hospital; then three years of surgical training at three U of T hospitals in Toronto as a resident in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (aMP). This was completed in 1980. I spent a month at the world famous Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas then set up private practice in Newmarket. I received my Fellowship in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery from the Royal College of Dentists of Canada in 1982.
Dr. Moore’s Professional Involvement
I have had the privilege of holding the following positions: Treasurer through to President of the Ontario Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Anaesthesia Consultant to the Ontario Dental Association, Chairman of the Specialist Committee of the aDA, Ontario Councillor for the Canadian Association ofaMP Surgeons, and Examiner for the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, member of the Anaesthesia Committee of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, and Anaesthesia Committee Chairman of the Ontario Society ofaMP Surgeons and Canadian Association ofaMP Surgeons. The Royal College of Dental Surgeons requires all dentists to complete 30 hours per year of continuing education. I typically accumulate 2-3 times this amount per year of continuing education. I also host continuing education meetings for local dentists and/or staff each year.
I am currently Head of Dentistry at Southlake Regional Health Centre.
