Originally from Edmonton, Alberta, Dr. Debra
Walters came to Toronto to complete her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto in zoology. She
then followed in her father’s footsteps and pursued
a career in dentistry, graduating with Honours from Western University in London, Ontario in 1986.
She settled in Toronto with her husband, Gary,
and raised her three children while practising
general family dentistry beginning in Aurora,
and ultimately joining Dr. Jon Gasner about twenty five years ago.
Debra is passionate about providing high quality care in a warm and comforting environment while forging good relations with her patients to make them feel at ease in the dental chair.
Her retirement is approaching which is very bittersweet as she will miss her patients and colleagues very much while she pursues her next career: part time Muskoka resident, on call grandmother, and her other hobbies which are waiting for more time and attention.
