Dr Cindy Nagel

BSc D.M.D., Family Dentist

Dr. Cindy Nagel was born and raised in Kamloops, BC and proud to have returned home to build her state-of-the-art dental studio in 2015.

She graduated dental school with honours from McGill University in 2012 and trained as a hospital dentist in Calgary before transitioning to private practice in Kamloops in 2013.

In Alberta, she gained valuable experience working with medically complex patients and children, including administering conscious sedation.

Between 2015-2019, Dr. Cindy volunteered her days at the non-profit dental clinic in the New Life Mission in Kamloops, giving back to those most in need in our community until the clinic closed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

In 2017, Dr. Cindy joined the Medical Staff at Royal Inland Hospital and is now offering dental treatment under general anesthesia, both in the hospital and Kamloops Surgical Center.

Outside the office, Dr. Cindy loves to do yoga, knitting, painting, and enjoys her coffee.
