Dr. Nick Massé grew up in Thorndale, Ontario. Following high school, he travelled to the University of Waterloo where he completed a Bachelors of Science in 2001. From there, he returned home to begin a Master's of Science in Anatomy and Cell Biology at Western University. Upon completion in 2004, he spent a year doing research in Kinesiology at Western before being accepted into the dental program at Western’s Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry. After receiving his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2009, he began an associate position in Strathroy and Lucan where he has furthered his dental skills under the guidance of great mentors at both offices.
When the Trails at Wye Creek commercial area became available in Thorndale, Dr. Massé jumped at the opportunity to come "home" and provide dental services to the community that raised him! In September 2013, the doors officially opened to the Thorndale Dental Centre. The office continues to grow, thanks to the growth and wonderful support of the surrounding community. Dr. Massé looks forward to spending the rest of his professional career in Thorndale.
Dr. Massé provides virtually all types of dental services for patients of all ages. These services range from root canal therapy, extractions, dentures, crown and bridge work, and restoring implants. The goal of the Thorndale Dental Centre’s team is to educate patients in prevention on an individual basis in order to maintain complete oral health.
In his past-time, Dr. Massé stays active playing hockey in a men’s pick-up league in the winter, and as a member of the local Brewers Slo-Pitch team in the summer. Family time is especially important to Dr. Massé, where he is kept busy with his daughter Olivia and three sons, Owen, Oliver and Oscar. Dr. Massé also keeps an affiliation with Western’s Schulich School of Dentistry, where he was a part-time faculty member.
