Dr. Shelly Stack | Kanata & Kemptville Locations
Dr. Stack grew up in North Carolina, where she received an Undergraduate Degree in Deaf Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Her 25+ year career as a Sign Language Interpreter also saw her living and working in Washington, D.C. and Rochester, N.Y. before the life-altering decision to pursue Dentistry.
This had been a long-held passion since working at her Family Dental office as a teen. Fate (and a desire for cooler climates than those she grew up in) brought Dr. Stack to Canada. Specifically to London, Ontario where she achieved a D.D.S. from Western University. London is also where she met her wife; Crystal, and through new family connections to the Ottawa Valley, fell in love with the Country’s Capital region.
Soon, what started as a large-scale job search in the area with many wonderful offices and colleagues, narrowed to one company that stood above the rest, especially connecting to Dr. Stack’s deep desire to give back to the Community; Yazdani Dental. Dr. Stack was very pleased to accept a position with Yazdani to work at their Kemptville and Kanata locations.
With the help of family and friends, Dr. Stack, her partner, and their beloved dog and cat, made the move to Kanata where they are so happy to live close to Crystal’s 94-year-old Grampie as well as a myriad of Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins!
Yazdani Dental and Kanata are already beginning to feel like home to the couple, who look forward to settling in and expanding in the coming years!
Bonus Facts: Two of Dr. Stack’s other passions include sweet desserts (especially chocolate), and travelling. One of the travel experiences that she will never forget was the bridge climb in Sydney, Australia, where she gazed with awe at the Sydney Harbour and Opera House.
