Since discovering her passion for orthodontics while witnessing her own smile transformation as an adult in braces, Dr. Stephanie Mai enjoys merging art and science to provide individualized care for her patients in the most inclusive and friendly environment possible.
Excellence in Education
A graduate of the University of Montreal, Dr. Mai completed her Doctorate of Dental Medicine with honours in 2007. She pursued a multi-disciplinary residency in advanced education in general dentistry at the University of Rochester, New York. After practicing as a general dentist in Waterloo, Ontario, and conducting research at the University of Toronto on FGFR2 gene mutations involved in craniosynostotic syndromes, Dr. Mai returned to the University of Montreal to complete her three-year orthodontic specialty program in 2010.
Her master’s on bracket bond strength was presented at the American Association of Orthodontists and the Canadian Association of Orthodontists in 2013.
Dr. Mai first practiced as an orthodontic associate in Kitchener-Waterloo, then joined Dr. White’s practice in 2021. As an active fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and a member of professional associations, Dr. Mai has the knowledge and tools to provide the best care for families that come to the office.

Outside the Office
Dr. Mai grew up in Montreal and is fluent in English, Vietnamese, and French (in which she completed her master’s in orthodontics!). She is an explorer at heart and loves to discover locally or globally with her husband and two children.
Dr. Mai volunteers her time towards the enhancement of her children’s schools as an active member of the parent board committee to prepare the students for success. She also hopes to complete more dental humanitarian missions in the future; her time spent in rural Ecuador as a member of Dentists Without Borders was humbling and gratifying.
