Dr. Kristen Dienst graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2019. Prior to this, she completed three years of a Bachelor of Science in Animal Biology at the University of Guelph. After completing a high school placement at a vet clinic, she knew that being a veterinarian was the career for her and she has never looked back since!
Dr. Dienst has a particular interest in avian and exotic medicine, and is excited to be treating all types of furry, feathered and scaly friends at Glen Erin Animal Hospital. She also has a passion for international veterinary medicine, and has spent time volunteering with wildlife and companion animals in Southeast Asia, Africa and Australia throughout vet school.
Originally from Ajax Ontario, Dr. Dienst recently moved to Toronto with her cat Oliver and her bearded dragon Matilda. In her spare time, she volunteers with the veterinary team at the Toronto Wildlife Centre. She also enjoys being outdoors in nature, reading, yoga, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
