AboutMeet Dr. Thain

After studying biomedical sciences at the University of Ottawa, Dr. Carolyne Thain transferred to the University of Montreal to study in its five-year dentistry program. She graduated as a dentist in 2010, finishing first in her class and winning the top academic award.

Dr. Thain developed her interest in orthodontics during a research placement at the Sainte-Justine Children’s Hospital in Montreal, where she also learned of the clinically intensive orthodontic specialty program at Jacksonville University in Florida. She was accepted into the Advanced Specialty Education Program in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at Jacksonville University in Florida. Although Dr. Thain was the youngest orthodontic resident in her class, she quickly earned her classmates’ respect and was elected class president. Upon some reflection, they decided to refer to her as the class “Prime Minister” because she was Canadian!

After successfully completing the National Dental Specialty Examination of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, Dr. Thain decided to return to Canada and start her practice in her hometown of Embrun. She is a Board Certified Orthodontist and Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada.
