Ascent Dental and Creekside Dental, two clinics in Pincher Creek, have merged together this summer and are operating out of a brand-new building.

The dentists decided to retain Ascent Dental as the clinic name.

The locally-owned and operated dental clinic now has four dentists on staff, Dr. David Baker, Dr. Mark Leishman, Dr. Fraser Peterson and Dr. Greg Steed. Among them, they have almost 60 years of experience.

“The nice thing about combining practices is that patients have access to more specialized services now," says office administrator Rashelle Leishman. “We can pool resources between the different dentists so that patients can get the best treatment in one office.”

Dr. Steed is the most long-standing dentist, with over 35 years of experience.

Each dentist has a specialization to offer patients, meaning that multiple services and treatments can be performed under one roof.

“It provides a greater convenience for patients so that they can get the best care without having to travel back and forth between different offices,” Leishman says. “It provides so much more in that one space. We brought what you could expect from a larger centre to a small town with the technology that we have and the services that we are providing.”

The new building is almost double the size of Ascent Dental’s prior office. A large 12-chair reception area greets patients and a kid’s play area is available to keep the tots occupied. A big change is that the new location has private rooms, eliminating distractions and increasing privacy for patients.

“It’s a nice, new, modern office. We wanted to accommodate all of our patients better and along with that, we have all the new modern technology,” says Leishman. “It made sense to join together in the new building because now we can share a lot of the expenses for the office, which also keeps costs down for the patients. We can buy supplies in bulk and share staff.”

The new location is at 1342 Veterans Street, Pincher Creek. Visit www.ascentdental.ca for more information.
