Dr. Melissa Duff was born and raised in Paradise, Newfoundland. She earned a Bachelor of Science and Graduate Diploma from Memorial University before obtaining a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) at Dalhousie University. There she was awarded the Dr. H. W. W. Beckwith prize for greatest proficiency in clinical operative dentistry in her graduating class.
Since her graduation from dental school, Dr. Duff has maintained a strong focus on patient care, believing that open and honest communication with patients is the key to providing compassionate and ethical care. She firmly believes in lifelong learning and makes it a priority to regularly participate in continuing education courses on a variety of topics.
When an opportunity presented itself to move back to Halifax, Dr. Duff leapt at the chance. She is thrilled to be moving back to the east coast to practice with Transcendental Group.
Outside of the office, if Dr. Duff isn’t watching her Blue Jays or Philadelphia Eagles (Fly, Eagles Fly!), she can be found curled up with a good book or admiring pictures of her favourite Instagram dogs.
