Veteran Denturist brings tooth repair expertise to Medicine Hat and Lethbridge clinics

dr.wallurger-able-dental-groupAble Dental Group is proud to announce the recent appointment of Dr. Scott Walburger to their dental team. As a veteran Denturist, Dr. Walburger brings considerable surgical knowledge and expertise to bear for the benefit of both the Lethbridge and Medicine Hat communities.

“There’s so many aspects of dentistry that you can focus on,” says Dr. Walburger. “My outlook is to focus on people – to provide dental implant solutions for people with missing teeth, working alongside denturists to serve the community.”

As the former owner of Southview Denture Clinic in Medicine Hat for seven years, the Cardston, Alberta native sold his practice in 2012 in order to focus on the wider world of dentistry. That same year, he embarked on a rigorous educational journey with courses at Medicine Hat College, the University of Lethbridge and the University of Detroit Mercy, from which he graduated with his Doctorate in Dental Surgery in May.

“The reason I went into dentistry is that I really wanted to help people solve their problems,” says Dr. Walburger, describing the motivation behind his career change. As a Denturist, I was able to help the patients only to a certain point. Now I can place dental implants, stabilize people’s dentures and change lives."

For Dr. Walburger, joining the Able Dental Group team is an event that is both fresh and familiar. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Able Dental Group while I was a Denturist, and I feel they are a very professional and established dental group,” he says. “I’m really looking forward to working with Dr. Murray and the rest of the Team.”

Dr. Walburger joins Able Dental Group on July 8th. For two days out of every week he’ll conduct extractions and replacements at Lethbridge Dental Surgical Suites, along with three days of general dentistry at Southside Dental in Medicine Hat.

All the while, Dr. Walburger will continue his passion for learning with courses in advanced dental implants and sedation. “Continual learning is a big part of what I do,” he says. “It’s vital to remain current in the latest dental technology and procedures.”
