About Dr. Rod Johnston (Dr. “J”), Dr. Ross and the Dynamic Dental Clinic

Dr. J grew up in the mining town of Lynn Lake, Manitoba. In the late 60’s he moved to Ontario to pursue his education, and graduated as a dentist (DDS) from the University of Toronto in 1978. After graduation Dr. J moved back to Manitoba in 1978 and opened his first dental clinic in Lynn Lake. He worked in town three weeks a month and for the fourth week would fly his own plane to outlying villages to ensure they received dental care.

In 1984, when it was announced that the mine in Lynn Lake was closing, Rod and his family decided to move back to Ontario. After settling in Corbeil, Rod taught full time in the Dental Hygiene and Assisting program at Canadore College. In 1988, he opened the practice on Highway 94 in Corbeil and worked there until he sold it in the early 2000’s.

In 1993 Rod became involved in the Heritage Railway Company, which would later become the Heritage Railway and Carousel Company, and is still involved today, as well as being Chairman for Community Waterfront Friends. Rod has dedicated an unlimited amount of time to these projects that he is passionate about, because he believes to deeply in the strength of community in North Bay.

In 2006 Rod offered to help at Dr. Sciuk’s dental clinic when Dr. Sciuk had a serious accident. He worked a few days here and there and when it was clear that Dr. Sciuk would not be returning to the clinic he bought the practice and “Dynamic Dentistry” was born. The clinic was then moved from it’s original location on Worthington Street to the beautiful space at 245 Oak Street East. Dr. J has worked hard to make the clinic an outstanding dental practice and a place where clients feel welcome.

In 2016, after a few years of intense courses and getting proper systems in place, Dr. J was able to focus on performing the newest technique for dental implants. Dental implants can really change your life, and because it is such a delicate procedure it requires more time than a regular dental appointment. To help ensure that no clients were having to wait longer for appointments, Rod decided to hire an associate. He found the perfect match for the clinic in Dr. Michael Ross.

Dr. Ross was born and raised in North Bay and also graduated from the University of Toronto with his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree, in 2016. Dr. Ross has been a wonderful addition to the team, not only taking on new clients but also taking excellent care of our long-time clients. Michael has also been teaching up at Canadore College in the Dental Hygiene and Assisting program, which is giving him some great experience outside of the clinic. Dr. Ross will be starting the dental implant courses as well, which will give the entire team more flexibility when scheduling clients. When he’s not working or studying, Michael enjoys spending time outside, in cold or warm weather.

Both Dr. Johnston and Dr. Ross provide quality care to every client and the entire team works together to make your dental experience the best that it can be.
