kellydavidoffDr. Kelly Davidoff

Grew up in Castlegar and in the dental office where her mom worked as office manager for 20 years. From age 14, she worked in all areas of the practice and fell in love with dentistry. Starting her career in hygiene, Kelly knew she would be a dentist and graduated from UBC in 2007. With the Kootenays in her blood, she is passionate about serving Nelson and the surrounding community through her dentistry, and is especially fond of working with children and improving people’s smiles. She enjoys yoga, meditation, travel, and raising funds for her late brother, the Dan Davidoff Legacy Fund via the Osprey Community Foundation.







Dr. Tosh Rudell

Moved out west after graduating from the University of Western Ontario in 1973 to work in a Community Health Clinic in downtown Vancouver where he became an associate sessional lecturer at UBC and started an externship program to give 4th year dental students the opportunity to work with underprivileged residents of the downtown east side. Tosh moved to Nelson in the late 70’s to open a private practice during the years of the NDP dental program for children under 16. He decided to follow his love of travel by selling his practice and moving to such distant ports as Haida Gwaii, Sechelt, Silverton, Salt Spring Island, Central Oregon, San Diego and the Oregon Coast to practice dentistry in many practices, learning new techniques and gaining proficiency in many areas of dental practice. He spent 5 years on the Island of Kauai building a 50′ wooden sail boat and then sailing it on his maiden voyage to Vancouver. He particularly enjoys working with elderly patients and solving their dental troubles with his broad expertise in endodontic therapy and fixed and removable dental appliances. With 44 years of experience, if you have it, he’s seen it and taken care of it.

Tosh is relaxed and easy going, gets along well with staff and patients of all ages and provides gentle, caring, comprehensive and quality dental treatment based on the individual needs of each person who places there trust in him. He is always willing to review and explain your dental situation to you in a calm and easy manner so that you have a good understanding of what is needed before proceeding with treatment.

Oh yes…and he loves to play badminton whenever he can find the time.


Dr. Blair Day

Was raised on a farm in central Alberta. After graduating from the University of Alberta in 2013, he moved to Nelson for its abundance of outdoor activities, and has resided here ever since. While practicing all disciplines of dentistry, he has a special interest in oral surgery and endodontic (root canal) therapy. When not in the clinic, Blair can often be found outside in the backcountry as an avid snowboarder and mountain biker.

Honourable Mention

Patricia Davidoff

Held many positions within our clinic over the years until her recent retirement in 2017. As Office Manager and Receptionist, Patricia consistently went well ‘over and above’ for patients and colleagues alike and she would not have it any other way. Patricia was so proud to be a team member in this progressive and cutting edge dental office. Patricia is gleefully enjoying her retirement and is an expert “granny nanny”. Kelly, Tosh, Blair, and all the clinical team wish Patricia love and wellness in this next chapter of her life.
