Hi! My name is Betty Pan. I am truly honoured to serve our community by doing something that I love! I know most people don’t share my enthusiasm for dentistry, which is why I strive to make your dental experience as comfortable as can be.
I was born in Calgary, but grew up in the windy city of Lethbridge, Alberta. I received my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry at the University of Lethbridge and went on to dental school at the University of British Columbia. I then went on to complete a General Practice Residency at the University of Alberta, where I spent some of my time working at the U of A Hospital Dental Clinic providing care to medically complex patients.
What I love most about dentistry is the ability to get to know my patients, who become like family to me. I enjoy working together towards achieving life-long oral health. I believe that our mouth and our overall health are linked inextricably. I want to spend the time getting to know you and all the factors that contribute to your oral health, so that we can understand the root cause of what is affecting your mouth. My goal is for us to create sustainable solutions together!
In my spare time, you can find me at fitness classes, on the couch with a cup of tea and a good book, biking or running outdoors or cooking up a big meal for friends and family.
Thank you for your trust in me and our team. I look forward to developing life-long relationships and working together towards healthy smiles.
