Dr. Kirk Blanchard

Kirk coaches and lives the belief that people are fulfilled by meaningful contribution and that people who are fulfilled contribute more meaningfully.

This perspective was forged by two decades of experience in healthcare and clinic management.

He views his role as dentist, employer and teacher, fundamentally as roles of leadership.

Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Kirk attended St. Mary’s University for Sciences, graduated from Dalhousie Dental School in 1997 and later returned to teach at Dalhousie as an associate professor.

In 2015 he decided to pursue this coaching role more formally by attending and completing the Certificate of Executive Coaching with Royal Roads University.

Kirk is a father and a husband. He spends his free time camping with his family, playing drums with his band, painting and sketching, and creating (anything and everything) in his work shop.
