Dr. Myriam Feldman was born and raised in Tucuman, in northern Argentina. She attended primary and high school at the Hebrew School while being very active in Jewish Youth Movements. She obtained her dental degree at the National University of Tucuman in 1995.
In 1997, she moved to Buenos Aires with her husband, Gustavo Wendichansky, and her two young children, Ezequiel and Nicolas, where she began practicing general dentistry. In 2003, the family moved to Montreal to start a new chapter in their lives. She completed a multidisciplinary residency program at the Jewish General Hospital, staying for a second year as Chief Resident.
Dr. Feldman successfully completed the equivalency exams and obtained her license to practice dentistry in Quebec in 2006. She has been in private practice in downtown Montreal since then and opened her own dental clinic in 2011.
She was an active participant in the dental program of the Cree Health Board in northern Quebec, the Comité d’examens et d’agréments dentaires (EXAD) and the Comité d’ Admission de l’Ordre des dentistes du Québec (ODQ), acting also as an observer for the ODQ and NDEB exams.
Currently, she participates as invigilator/evaluator for the Canadian National Dental Board Examination (NDEB).
