Dr. Schona Grimes

Associate Dentist

Dr. Schona Grimes

Schona was born and raised in St. John’s where she started her post-secondary education at Memorial University and graduated in 2012 with an undergraduate degree in biochemistry, minor in chemistry. She went on to Halifax to attend Dalhousie University and graduated in 2017 from the dentistry program.

Practicing dentistry has been Schona’s ambition from a young age. Throughout her undergraduate and high school studies, she was a familiar face at Avalon Dental as she worked on our reception desk for several summers. She’s very pleased to be back at Avalon Dental to offer her services as a full-time dentist.

​Dr. Grimes currently lives in the St. John’s area with her husband and two kids, and their Portugese Water Dog, Willa. They enjoy travelling, camping, and spending time outdoors – their next goal is to complete the East Coast Trail. Schona also enjoys curling up with a good book.
