Erin Fairbanks, B.Sc., D.Ch
Originally from Iroquois Falls, Ontario, Erin attended the University of Guelph and graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Honours - Human Kinetics) in 1998. After her graduation she completed her education at the Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences where she obtained her Diploma of Chiropody in 2001.
Erin is a Chiropodist (pronounced ker rah po dist). A Chiropodist is a foot specialist who is trained in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of medical conditions of the feet. Erin is the owner and operator of the Advanced Foot & Orthotic Clinic; the first and only full time Chiropody clinic in the Southern Georgian Bay area. The clinic was first located on King Street in Midland for over ten years. In July 2014, Erin had the great pleasure of opening the doors at her new location of 263 Midland Ave in the beautiful downtown core of Midland. The clinic has been serving the community for over 20 years and Erin and team look forward to many more.
A typical day will find Erin performing nail care and callus removal, prescribing and dispensing orthotics, providing diabetic foot care and performing nail procedures to remove ingrown toenails. Her main goal is to provide the highest quality foot care and foot education to the Southern Georgian Bay area.
Settling in this area was always the goal of the Fairbanks family. Erin and her partner Mike moved to the area in 2002 anticipating a long and prosperous relationship with the community. Erin and Mike have two beautiful children, Ethan and Lindsay.
Alexandra (Ali) obtained her Bachelor of Science from Western University in 2011, graduating with a degree in Biology and Medical Sciences. She then continued her education at the Michener Institute in Toronto, graduating with distinction from the Chiropody program in 2015.
Ali grew up in Simcoe County and is thrilled to be back home in Midland where she can enjoy the delights of Georgian Bay, spend quality time with friends and family, and connect with the community.
Ali has a passion for helping people as she strives to provide quality patient-centered care to all of her patients.
"Excellent foot care. My feet have never been happier."
