I was born and raised in the Southern Alberta area and completed my primary schooling with honours. I participated in many extra-curricular activities, including basketball, soccer, mountain biking, rock climbing and enjoying the outdoors. I then went on to start my post-secondary education at the University of Alberta, where I completed a degree in the sciences. I also had the opportunity during this time to complete a two year service mission in Seoul, Korea. After returning from Korea I met and married my wife Amie (Evans).
My wife and I then moved to Indiana where I was accepted to Indiana University School of Dentistry and went on to complete the four year program. While there I received an award for my abilities in Prosthodontics (crown, bridge, veneers and smile makeovers).
After graduation my wife, myself and our first child returned to Canada and Southern Alberta to purchase Dr. Strong Senior’s practice and to raise our family. Our family has grown since that spring of 2005; we now have four children (two girls and two boys) and still love life here in Lethbridge and Southern Alberta.
My team and I relocated to our new location in 2010 and we have enjoyed being able to provide our patients with a more comfortable environment designed to benefit and enhance our patient’s dental experience. It has been great settling into this area and providing ways to better serve our current and future patient base.
I look forward to continuing to bring modern treatment options to our patients and always staying on the “cusp” of future technologies which will benefit them.
