Dr. Chumak grew up in Ottawa and attended Colonel By High School. It was when Dr. Chumak had braces at 12 that he decided to become an orthodontist. He graduated from the University of Toronto Dental Faculty at the age of 22. Then he obtained his Master’s in Orthodontics from Western University.
After teaching at Western for two years, Dr. Chumak moved to Lahr, Germany to be an Orthodontist for the Canadian Forces. He returned home in 1993 and opened his practice in Centrepointe.
Dr. Chumak continues to be a faculty member at Western University and remains current with technology and treatment options. He is also a past president of the Ottawa Dental Society and an examiner for the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Canada. Dr. Chumak’s positive experience with his own orthodontic treatment inspired him to pursue a career in dentistry. He feels there is nothing better than giving his patients a smile that will last a lifetime.
