Peter Campbell graduated from the University of Alberta dental program in 1981 at the young age of 23. He started working as an associate dentist at Parkland Dental in Stony Plain almost immediately after graduation. He soon realized that his passion lay in the field of cosmetic dentistry so he joined the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He attended as many meetings, seminars, lectures and hands-on courses as he could in order to develop and improve his skills. He moved to Spruce Grove in 1998.
During recent years it seems that a serious need has surfaced to treat very fearful patients. Few dental offices locally were providing sedation dentistry, so Dr. Campbell made a commitment to obtain full certification in sedation methods and provide a much-needed service to the community.
Dr. Campbell is certified through the University of Alberta for nitrous oxide sedation as well as oral and single-drug intravenous sedation techniques. Because of that, we do not require the services of an outside anesthesiologist, which can increase costs significantly and limits the days sedations services can be offered. We provide all sedation services on our premises, for medically-suitable patients.
In order to provide even more methods of pain control, Dr. Campbell has recently received accreditation for medical acupuncture from the U of A. This program was offered to medical professionals only and was taught by the world renowned Edmonton acupuncturist and physician Dr. Steven K.H. Aung.
Dr. Shkopich, a general dentist, was educated at the University of Saskatchewan and completed his undergraduate training in physiology. He was formally trained at the U of S College of Dentistry. Following dental school, Dr. Shkopich worked at the Royal University Hospital treating special needs patients, children requiring general anaesthesia, medically compromised individuals and dental trauma patients.
Dr. Shkopich enjoys doing cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, oral surgery including wisdom teeth, and implant dentistry.
Embarking on a new stage in his career, Dr. Shkopich recently moved to the Edmonton area to focus on practicing in the field of general dentistry with interest dental implants. Dr. Shkopich welcomes new patients!
