Dr. Tan was trained in Edmonton and graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery and Bachelor of Medical Science Degrees from the University of Alberta. He received academic awards for the AAP excellence in periodontology and clinical dentistry. Dr. Tan had excellent mentors and practiced in a surgical center early on which helped him excel in all aspects of general dentistry. Dr. Tan has a keen interest in oral surgery and root canal therapy. He’s trained in nitrous oxide as well as oral conscious sedation for comfortable dental surgeries and wisdom teeth removal.
Much of his free time is spent at CE courses to learn about up-to-date techniques beyond those achieved in dental school. He takes pride in working with anxious patients and building trust to develop personalized care plans tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Outside of the clinic, he is outdoorsy and enjoys Edmonton’s river valley and his gardens. He is an avid reader and gym-goer who has recently struck up an interest in “homebrewing”.
