Kelowna Family Dental traces back to the first dental practice in Kelowna! Dr. Shepherd opened Kelowna’s first dentist office in 1905. Dr. Geis bought it from him in 1950 and then Dr. Martin took over in 1986. Dr. Martin also bought a practice from Dr. Mac Leitch and joined the two together. With Dr. Moreau buying the practice in 2016, she became the fourth dentist to own Kelowna’s original dental clinic. We have many loyal patients who have been with our practice through the changing doctors over the years. The location and names may have changed over the years, but the commitment to quality dental care remains the same!
