Dr. Kim Boldt

General Dentist

Wife, Mother, Friend, General Dentist

Two main reasons why Dr. Kim Boldt became a dentist in the first place are:

  1. When she was a child, she had less-than-fun experiences with the dental therapists who worked out of my elementary school in Saskatchewan, and thought she could provide a better experience.

  2. When she was in high school she admired her dentist who used her vacation time to go overseas and do free dental work for underprivileged people.

She has been on two dental mission trips (to Honduras and Sri Lanka) and continue to strive to be empathetic and enthusiastic with all patients, especially children.

How becoming a dentist improved her own health:

  1. She was unaware that it is not normal nor healthy for gums to bleed, so she started flossing daily, taking food supplements, and breathing through her nose.

  2. In addition to causing dried-out lips and bleeding gums, her lifelong chronic mouth-breathing had led to recurrent colds and ear infections, snoring, itchy hands, and the inability to run for long, or to swim underwater.

Once she started using dental trainers and expansion appliances to widen her own smile and airway, she could finally breathe though her nose and her quality of life improved greatly. Now she LOVES running, singing, the ocean and watching her nose-breathing daughters dance!

Living and practicing in Summerside is a dream come true. She's delighted to chat with you at the school, grocery store, beach club or anywhere in our growing community!

Dr. Antonella Trache

Dr. Antonella Trache graduated from dentistry from the University of Alberta in 1993. While still in dental school, she joined the Canadian Armed Forces as a dental officer. The military afforded her a vast array of memorable and valuable experiences from both professional and personal perspectives.

The 4 year program was intensive, covering clinic-based and hospital based cases in dentoalveolar surgery and trauma surgery.

In 2010, she was posted back home to Edmonton as the Western Region Oral and Maxillofacial Trauma Surgeon at the Role 3 Multinational Hospital at Kandahar Air Base. After a military career that spanned over 2 decades, she decided to take her release from the Canadian Forces as of December 10, 2013. She continue to enjoy dentistry and involvement in patient treatment, and it will be her privilege to be able to address dentoalveolar, pre-prosthetic and dental implant surgery needs as part of the overall comprehensive oral care and health.
