Dr. Besher Alfarra

DMD & Owner of Kemptville Smiles

Hello. I am Dr.A! Let me tell you a few things about myself. I have been practicing dentistry since 2005. I graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Science in 2000. I then obtained my DMD (Doctor in Dental Medicine) from the University of Montreal. Right after graduation, I decided to complete a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry program in Rochester, New York at the University of Rochester. That program helped me refine a wide range of clinical skills including surgical, restorative and pediatric Dentistry.  

I continuously take the most updated education courses in orthodontics, dental implants and general dentistry. I am a certified Invisalign and Laser Dentist. I can also provide oral sedation to anxious patients. I am a member of the Ottawa Dental Society, Ontario Dental Association and The royal college of dental surgeons of Ontario.

In my spare time, I love spending quality time with my wife Shaza and my little boy Zade. I really enjoy watching and playing soccer and Tennis whenever I have the time! I lived 11 years in Montreal so I am a big habs fan! I wouldn’t shy away from a challenge, that’s why I ran Spartan Races and Mud Heros races. So far, I have finished the Sprint and Super, and I plan to finish The Beast race as well.

My favorite part of my job is spending time with my patients, and getting to know them. It’s always an honor every time a new patient choose to come to my practice. My goal is to provide top notch dental care in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere where my patients feel listened to and cared. I understand the fear of coming to the dentist, I can relate to that myself especially when I was a kid. Nothing is more fulfilling to me than helping my patients get rid of their pain or simply giving them a smile they always wanted. I look forward to meeting you and your family and helping you achieve your oral health goals.
