Dr. Andrew Tomash, DDS, FRCD(C)
Certified Specialist in Pediatric Dentistry
Dr. Andrew Tomash attended Dalhousie University where he obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery. Andrew spent his first three years as a dentist in private practice in Ottawa, Ontario where he found his passion treating pediatric patients. He travelled twice to Nunavut to partake in relief programs offering dental care to children in remote communities. Andrew then decided to dedicate his practice to children and teens and pursued a pediatric dental specialty program. In 2018, he relocated to Rochester, New York where he completed a 2-year pediatric program and was awarded a Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry from the University of Rochester – Eastman Institute for Oral Health.
Andrew, his wife Zoe, and their cat Ellie moved to Victoria in 2020 and they love the west coast. When he is away from the office, Andrew enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching sports, and exploring the beautiful coast.
