Dr. Gogolinski grew up in a small town called Manyberries, where every street is literally named after a popular berry. She was raised on a cattle and grain farm with four siblings, so she quickly learned the art and importance of teamwork and developed a solid work ethic. These are skills she’s carried throughout her life and into her career as a dentist, and our patients benefit from them every day. You can learn more about what brought Dr. Gogolinski to Prince Albert by reading on below.
Dr. Gogolinski’s fascination with teeth started at a very early age. By the time she was nine, she was pulling out all of her siblings’ baby teeth, and soon enough, neighbors with loose teeth started stopping by her home as well. Eventually, all of the children at Sunday school were lining up to see her. A mere 15 years later, she graduated from college with her dental degree, and she hasn’t looked back since.
Dr. Gogolinski attended the University of Saskatchewan and graduated with her Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree in 2011. Following graduation, she took an associate position with Dr. Janzen, practicing both in his clinic as well as Victoria Hospital in Prince Albert. After a few years, she recognized that children and those with disabilities needed to have better access to dental care in a hospital environment, so she started spending more time making this a reality. Eventually, she became the Chief of Dentistry at Victoria Hospital.
When not at work, Dr. Gogolinski’s favorite thing to do is spend time with her husband and daughter, making and capturing memories whenever she can. She also enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, including golfing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, camping, and traveling.
