Dr. Ruoho

Dr. Peter Ruoho was born and raised in Brantford, Ontario.  He attended the University of Western Ontario where he received a degree in Honours Genetics and was awarded the Governor General’s Gold Medal for highest average in his class.  Following this, Dr. Ruoho received a dental degree from the University of British Columbia in beautiful Vancouver. Initially he practiced in the demanding  northern Alberta communities of Grande Prairie and High Prairie before returning home to be closer to his family.

Dr. Ruoho offers and enjoys all aspects of general dentistry but has special interests in the areas of endodontics and oral surgery – recently expanding into dental  impantology. With his calm and gentle chair side approach, “Dr. Peter” already has an avid following amongst our patients regardless of what treatment is being performed.

When not in the office he can be found working on his golf game or playing drums with his band. He is very excited to join the fantastic team at Woodstock Dental Centre, serving the dental needs of Woodstock and the surrounding community.
