I’m a wife, mother, pediatrician, and emergency medicine doctor. I am constantly astounded with the poor caliber of children’s health information on the web, so I decided to share my own at DrDina.ca   –  I love providing practical and fun health knowledge to parents, teens, and kids too!

Hi, I’m Dr. Dina Kulik

I live in Toronto, Canada, with my very supportive husband, four energetic and incredible sons (between 4 and 11 years old), and three dogs.

I am a pediatrician, pediatric emergency medicine doctor, and the founder and director of Kidcrew™, a multidisciplinary kids health clinic, where we are the One-Stop for Kids’ Health™.

I’m a runner, spin fanatic, and adrenaline junky, needing constant stimulation to keep from getting bored (maybe that’s where the kids get it from?). I thrive in organized chaos. Sound familiar parents?

Through this site and my Kidcrew™ website, I’m hoping to get the conversation started on all things related to children’s health. From breastfeeding challenges to potty training to night terrors in kids – I’ve been through it all personally and professionally.

Raising healthy, adaptable children is a challenge. No one does it perfectly, and no one comes out unscathed. The struggle is real!

I hope to make your parenting journey easier and less stressful with evidence-based information, tips and tricks, and a lot of fun.
