Helping Your Feet since 2003
Our team of certified pedorthists has been helping you solve all your foot problems at Thera-Ped Foot Clinic since 2003. Alison Smith, a Canadian-Certified Pedorthists, opened the clinic next to her family-owned shoe fitting store, The Shoe Tree, where she worked between 1995 and 2003.
She decided to open her practice to complement the services offered at the shoe store. The partnership’s goal is to help people have healthy and happy feet. She was quickly joined by her colleague, Deny Dallaire, a year later. Since then, the orthotic specialists have crafted numerous insoles and shoes that have helped alleviate their patients’ foot pain.
Alison opened Thera-Ped Foot and Ankle Clinic in 2003. She attended college in Moncton and graduated in business in 1998. After a few years of successfully establishing herself within the local business community, she decided to return to her roots in the footwear industry where she had worked part-time alongside her father at The Shoe Tree since the age of 15. In 2001 she joined the retail footwear business full-time and within two years she had taken the reigns of a new pedorthic clinic located next to the retail footwear outlet. She successfully studied for and completed her C.Ped Tech(C) in 2005 and her C.Ped (C) in 2009.
Alison is now president and owner of Thera-Ped Moncton Inc. and vice-president and manager of The Shoe Tree where she plans to become president and owner once her father retires.
Alison is a current board member and former president of The Pedorthic Association of Canada.
Deny Dallaire, B.Sc., C.Ped(C) has played a key role with our Thera-Ped Moncton team since joining us in 2003 when the clinic opened. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from l’Université de Moncton in 1995 and started practicing pedorthics in 1997. He was first certified through the Board for Certification in Pedorthics of the United States in 1997 and then he received his Certified Pedorthist (Canada) designation in 2003.
Although Deny helps manage a variety of foot and lower limb conditions, he specializes in pedorthics as it relates to the diabetic foot. Working closely with other health professionals at the wound clinic at the Moncton Hospital, Deny has become an integral part of their diabetic foot wound care team. In the past two years, Deny has also significantly built up the custom-made footwear component of his practice, thus allowing him to offer the full scope of pedorthics to his clients.
Thera-Ped Foot and Ankle Clinic has partnered with Pierre Bujold and his team for a number of years. We are thrilled to have Pierre visit the clinic every two weeks to see and treat a wide variety of patients from all over the province.

“My belief is that my clients' needs are of the utmost importance. I am committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals. I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and to provide you with the best service in the industry.
I have been a registered nurse for 26 years since graduating from the Northern College of Applied Arts and Technology in Timmins, Ontario in 1990.
I received my formal foot care training in advanced and diabetic foot care in Moncton, NB., in 2011.
In 2014, I expanded my studies under the highly-respected veteran-certified foot care nurse Laura Roehrick, RN, CFCN (US), in Santa Rosa, California. That same year, I became a US-board certified foot care nurse (a recognition Canada does not have).
With a varied and comprehensive nursing background, I possess the knowledge and the skills to provide thorough and competent care. You are more than just feet!”
