Dr. Della Summers

I’ve been a resident of Kamloops BC for 10 years. Prior to that, I had my own practice in Saskatoon, SK for 25 years. Graduated from University of Saskatchewan in 1983. Acted as a clinical supervisor at U of S for 5 years. Love dentistry, and wish I was just starting, with all of the advancements…it’s exciting to give patients their function back, and the smile of a lifetime!

I’m married; and have been an advocate for animal rescue for years; I’ve worked with Special Olympics, I’ve gotten so much out of it… My goal with patients is to take the fear out of dentistry…communicate, and have them realize that I’m just a person there to help them; not one to be feared! We educate, inform, and allow patients to make their own decisions about their oral health.

I believe that the kindest thing we can do for our patients is to make them as comfortable as possible while in our care. I’m all about informing patients each step of the way, and try to never leave them alone, wondering “what’s next?”

The best compliment I can receive from a patient is when they say, “I feel like I was visiting my friends, rather than a dentist!” We work very hard to make that happen, as most people are fairly stressed when they come to the dental office.

Every day is a new opportunity to provide exceptional and essential dental care to people of all ages. I believe strongly in this mission, and I am thrilled to deliver on that mission every day at Dr. Della Summers Dental Solutions.

My educational journey took me from Vancouver to Sydney, where I earned my Doctor of Dental Medicine designation in 2019 from University of Sydney. I worked at three hospitals in Sydney, executing treatment plans including periodontal, extraction, restorative, endodontic, fixed and removable prosthodontics, as well as maintenance work. I believe anything great that is accomplished is not done so alone, with each team member contributing by exceeding expectations. I am thrilled to work alongside the professionals at Della Summers Dental Solutions, and channel my passion for all things dentistry.

I recently moved to Kamloops and can’t say enough great things about the city and its people. Kamloops’ strong sense of community appealed to me instantly, and I look forward to learning more about the city’s intricacies with every new day
