DR. DANNY POND

Co-Owner/General Dentist

Dr. Pond was born and raised in Lewisporte, NL and completed his Bachelor of Science degree with honours at Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2005. He went on to complete his Master of Business Administration at Saint Mary’s University in 2010 and then graduated from Dalhousie University’s Doctor of Dental Surgery program in 2013. Dr. Pond enjoys getting to know his patients and doing what he can to ensure they have a healthy smile. Providing a positive experience for both adults and children are very important to him. While not practicing dentistry, Dr. Pond has been a huge WWE wrestling fan ever since he was a child. Now it’s evolved further into appreciating the history and business aspect of it, but there’s not a match he will miss. The storylines still get him every time. Dr. Pond enjoys spending time with his family, exercising (running/spin), watching hockey, time in the outdoors, and he is likely the biggest Blue Rodeo fan in all of Newfoundland.
