ABOUT US & OUR TEAM

ABOUT US & OUR TEAM 2017-07-26T14:27:32+00:00

Established in 1989 by Dr. Smith, our philosophy here has always been “Preventative Family Dentistry” based on establishing each patient’s individual needs in a warm and caring atmosphere. The evolution of our clinic has never deviated from that philosophy, the patient experience is our number one priority. The atmosphere and philosophy have remained the same under the guidance of new owners Adele and Geoff McIntosh.

We think you will appreciate the warm and friendly manner in which we treat our patients. Our commitment is to apply our dental knowledge and skills in a caring and gentle way, so you feel at ease as we help you attain the smile you desire.

Our main priority is to work with you to achieve a smile that can maximize your personal health, appearance, and raise your self-esteem.

We are also a kid friendly office, and we want you to know that we enjoy patients of all ages!

Dr. Geoff McIntosh
Dentist

Our fearless leader hails from our sister province of Saskatchewan.  Geoff got his first taste of Brandon while playing for the Brandon Wheat Kings.  Upon graduation from the University of Saskatchewan Dental College, he practiced in Campbell River, BC. Geoff is a real family man and enjoys time with his wonderful wife Adele and three beautiful children. The rest is history, as they say, as the practice has flourished under GMac’s leadership.  The appropriate ending to this story,  is that not only is Dr. Smith still working in the practice, but they have also become the official dentists for the Brandon Wheat Kings.
