We are excited to be able to offer full orthodontic treatment options with a collaboration with Authentic Orthodontics. The partnership comes with a much-needed demand we saw in Strathmore and we know this will be such a convenient option for so many families. Authentic Orthodontics brings Dr. Michael French as well as Dr. Michael Olsen to the office by appointment only and on-site inside Valley Dental Clinic. With their personable approach and exceptional service model, we knew they would fit right in. Currently, Authentic Orthodontics has offices in Calgary and Okotoks.
