There are No Dental Implant "Specialists" in Alberta.
Patients should be aware that there are no Dental Implant "Specialists". The Alberta Dental Association & College and the Canadian Dental Association do not recognize the placing and restoring of Dental Implants as a "Specialty" field in dentistry. No dentist in Alberta is allowed to say that they "specialize" in Dental Implants, or that they are "specialists" in Dental Implant procedures. This would be misleading to patients, and a violation of the Code of Ethics. Every registered Dentist in Alberta (General Dentist or Specialist), with the proper training and experience, can place and restore Dental Implants. Dr. Leigh has been placing and restoring dental implants for more than 37 years. Dr. Leigh does only Dental Implants and related procedures in his dental practice.
