Dr. Erin Kotelko

Dr. Erin Kotelko is a prairie girl at heart being born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She attended the University of Saskatchewan for her undergrad and then the College of Dentistry. Being in the Royal Canadian Navy since she was 16 has provided her with many opportunities to visit Victoria and ultimately made her keen on moving here.


She enjoys all aspects of dentistry, with a particular interest in children’s dentistry and orthodontics. Continuing education is an important aspect of dentistry as it is always evolving. In the near future, she hopes to take her Invisalign and Botox courses.


Outside of work, Dr. Kotelko enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She hopes to continue traveling to many different places. In 2015, Dr. Kotelko volunteered in the Philippines and hopes to be able to do more dental volunteer work in the future.


She has really enjoyed being in Victoria since moving here. She loves interacting with people and makes her best effort to put patients at ease while delivering the best care possible.


Dr. Kotelko looks forward to meeting you!
