Deborah Steacy

Deborah Steacy has been a registered dental hygienist since 1981 in the province of Ontario.

Deborah has experience working in multiple areas including private practices, long term care facilities and teaching at a private dental hygiene college. Throughout the course of her career she has continued to advance her knowledge and education in regards to periodontal care, neuromuscular dentistry, and nutrition. Her focus and passion are based around whole body dentistry.

In April of 2008 Deborah established the first independent Dental Hygiene Practice in the Kingston area.

Through her continued efforts she has earned a Volunteer Citation from the Ontario Dental Association for oral health care awareness and has been actively involved as the President and District Director of the Kingston district for the Ontario Dental Hygienists’ Association.

Deborah has continued her commitment to increasing awareness of oral hygiene and wellness by helping to found the newly formed Dental Hygiene Practitioners of Ontario association and by actively participating in seminars and the annual “Gift from the Heart” event. Deborah also served as president from October 2010 – April 2013 of the Dental Hygiene Practitioners of Ontario.

Total wellness is a lifestyle and Deborah maintains this as a three time Ironman Triathlon finisher and by volunteering and founding organizations such as the Kingston Multisport Club, Kingston Road Runners Association, the K-Town Triathlon, and the Kingston Kids of Steel Triathlon.

Wellness is about today and tomorrow and Deborah maintains this commitment with her clients, her friends, her family and, most of all, with her community.
