Dr. John Thompson (DDS)
Dr. John Thompson received his BSc from the University of Calgary in 1970 and then went on to study dentistry at the University of Alberta, graduating in 1974. You can say that dentistry was always in his blood, as he is a third generation dentist—both his father and grandfather were dentists as well.
"The amazing changes and improvements in technology, both in techniques and materials, continue to keep dentistry challenging and fun. Even after almost 40 years of practice, I enjoy all aspects of the profession, but particularly the opportunity to allow people to be active participants in the decision process for their dental care.
“As well as the many friendships that have developed over the years, dentistry has provided my wife, Lesley, and me the opportunity to satisfy a love of travel. Earlier, many of these trips were initiated by chances to play or watch rugby overseas. These days, more mellow sports like golf, skiing or curling are my sports of choice.
Dr. Brad Townsend
Dr. Brad Townsend has returned to Lake Bonavista Dental, where he practiced with Dr. John Thompson and Dr. Pat Peters until 2001, when he relocated to Red Deer.
His main focus is placing and restoring dental implants to replace missing single or multiple teeth as well as providing implants to retain and stabilize complete dentures. This technology has revolutionized dental treatment to the point where it is considered the gold standard for replacing missing teeth, partial dentures and complete dentures.
He is available as well for routine and conventional treatment Tuesday through Friday. Dr. Townsend is excited to return to Calgary and become reacquainted with old friends at LBD, and to welcome new clients as well.
