Meet The Doctor

Dr. Lam was born and raised in Vancouver and attended the University of British Columbia where he completed his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. Upon graduation, he decided to leave rainy Vancouver for the sunny skies of Calgary. After nearly ten years as an associate dentist in Calgary and completing B.A. and M.A. degrees in German, he took over as the owner dentist here at 8 West Dental Care.

In his spare time he participates in recreational curling and hockey with the Calgary Dental Leagues. He also enjoys travel, photography, and spending time with his wife and two children. Despite the move to Calgary, Dr. Lam remains an avid Vancouver Canucks fan!
