Family Dentists

Dr. Irma Kacur

Dr. Irma Kacur is a dental practitioner who has been providing dental care to patients in Toronto for over 30 years. Originally a graduate of the University of Belgrade, Dr. Kacur moved to Canada and completed her NDEB exams to procure her Canadian DDS in 1983. She has provided excellent dental care in the GTA since then.

She has a fan following in her patients who have followed her through her different practices and finally settled in comfortably at Bloor Smile Dental at which she has been since 2001.

Her interest in orthodontics has seen Dr. Kacur attend several continuing education courses in the subject , including the popular Invisalign form of treatment. She has walked many a patient to their dream of “A Perfect Smile” through successful Invisalign treatment. The non invasive nature of Dr. Chao’s pinhole technique to repair gum recession has grabbed her attention. Being trained in this technique, she offers the pinhole option to her patients instead of traditional surgery.

Not only is Irma an experienced dentist, but also a gifted artist. Other than that, she takes every opportunity to be a doting mom and grandma.
