Dr. Derek MacDonald

Henry Schein Canada prides itself on providing customers with best-in- class, end-to-end service. From first meeting to finished product, our team coordinates their particular skills to ensure that new dentists like Dr. Derek MacDonald get off to a great start and are positioned to succeed in the years ahead to provide the quality of dentistry that they had envisioned.

Aspen Trails Dental is located in Sherwood Park, Alberta and celebrated its grand opening in June 2010—only a few weeks after Dr. MacDonald had graduated from dental school at the University of Alberta. The space for the office was found when the Doctor and his wife were walking around their neighborhood and just happened to stumble upon the location. Realizing its business potential in a neighborhood with many young families, they contacted the agent who was handling the property and learned that the space was available. Shortly afterward, the Doctor contacted Henry Schein Canada and began to make plans for his new office.

"We began work on Derek MacDonald's Clinic in early 2010 while Derek was busy completing his final year of dentistry at the University of Alberta," recalls Equipment Sales Specialist, Grey Knechtel. "First, the premises lease was executed and the services of Senior Designer Jennifer Assaly were secured for the space plan and interior design. Jennifer, myself, Field Sales Consultant Bev Fredsberg, and Derek and his wife Natalie met routinely on Tuesday evenings around Derek's kitchen table to finalize the floor plan; select equipment; and put all the finishing details in place."

Aspen Trails Dental can happily boast the latest in quality equipment offerings from Pelton & Crane, Instrumentarium, Air Techniques, and KaVo. DENTRIX practicemanagement and GURU Patient Education software programs along with DEXIS digital X-ray sensors and Digital-Doc intraoral cameras round out an impressive array of modern, industry-leading technologies.

"With technology comes the ability to educate patients easier and treatment plan acceptance is greater. The massage chairs are also a great hit!

"The Doctor originally opened with only two operatories but within 6 months a third was added, with a fourth this past January. This rapid expansion is clear evidence that Derek's practice is well on its way to success and it will only be a matter of time before his remaining two operatories are equipped," notes Field Sales Consultant Bob Piercy.

Dr. MacDonald's patients will enjoy the best treatment options possible and his staff will benefit from the enhanced efficiency and continuously growing production that results from the best dental products available today. Patient satisfaction is greatly increased with faster treatment time and fewer trips to complete procedures. "Most people are really impressed and some have commented that it feels more like a spa than a dental clinic," points out Dr. MacDonald. "With technology comes the ability to educate patients easier and treatment plan acceptance is greater. The massage chairs are also a great hit!"

A visit to Aspen Dental's Web site quickly lets you know that the Doctor and his staff are dedicated to ensuring that patients have a superior overall experience at the office. The Doctor remarks, "What makes us truly desirable is our focus on the quality of services and personal attention. You are our guest and as such we will listen to all your needs and concerns so that we can provide comprehensive dental services to you. Being able to practice in an environment such as this one further reinforces this commitment."
