Meet Dr. Kelvin Hill


After purchasing Sylvan Lake Dental Centre in 2000, Dr. Hill has enjoyed guiding the growth of the practice and the development of a professional family of wonderful clients and dedicated staff. He feels fortunate to have joined the dental community at a time when the developing technology and materials allow for earlier detection of disease, more conservative and aesthetic restorations, and greater comfort for his patients. More recently he has taken an interest in the placement and restoration of dental implants and is enjoying the opportunity to provide this option for the replacement of missing teeth.
