Kelowna Dental Centre: Dental care with a difference
Welcome to the “new” Kelowna Dental Centre, where they want to change the way you think about dentistry. Dr. Michael Webster and his associate, Dr. Cory Brown, opened their doors in January, and they are excited about developing and establishing lifelong relationships with their patients.
Kelowna Dental Centre provides all forms of general dentistry including crowns and bridges, root canal treatment, extractions, fillings, cosmetic dentistry and preventive care. Dr. Webster has a special interest in oral surgery, including wisdom tooth extraction. He has extensive experience with conscious sedation—using sedatives that allow patients to stay awake and calm, but free from pain and discomfort. This kind of sedation is helpful for adults and children, and is especially helpful for anyone who is nervous about dental care or has difficulty keeping still.
Dr. Webster is particularly passionate about dental implants, and he loves educating patients about their long term benefits. Because implants replace both the visible part of missing teeth and the roots, they are often the best option to protect the health of your remaining teeth. Whether you’re missing one tooth or several, implants can help maintain proper spacing, bone structure and appearance. For those who struggle with dentures, implants may even be used to replace an entire set of teeth.
After spending two and a half years in Fort St. John acquiring immense experience in all fields in dentistry, Dr. Webster is excited to be back in his hometown of Kelowna. He is a proud graduate of Rutland Senior Secondary and he attended UBC Okanagan where he earned a B.Sc. with a major in biology. After completing his Doctorate of Medicinal Dentistry at UBC in Vancouver, he moved to Fort St. John.
