Krisztine Grad RN

Course Developer-Author, Founder, Instructor

Hi, I'm Krisztine Grad. I'm a member of CNO (College of Nurses of Ontario) and RNAO ( Registered Nurses Association of Canada). I am a registered nurse and have a successful, independent private foot care practice in Hamilton, Ontario. As the founder of The Art & Science of Burring, let me first welcome you and thank you for your interest! While I have practiced foot care since 2005, my burring adventure began in 2011 when I travelled to northern California in the United States and was introduced to the Helius40, a high-speed integrated vacuum podiatry drill. I soon came to realize that the high-speed podiatry drill, along with the choice of over 95 unique types of burs, allows not only a high degree of clinical precision but also facilitates a safer and pain-free experience for routine and high-risk patients. By changing to this type of podiatry machine, my practice changed overnight and I became passionate about learning and refining burring techniques. Over the past decade, I have travelled to numerous conferences and events in many provinces to instruct and demonstrate safe techniques using a wide variety of burs. Teaching foot care providers is my number one goal and it is my hope to share my knowledge with you so that you can begin to enjoy foot care to the fullest. Let your bur adventure begin!
