About Our Team

Dr. John W. Nelson

B. Med. Sc., D.D.S.
My name is John and I’m a general dentist.  I graduated from dentistry at the University of Alberta in 2004.  I worked as an associate dentist in Edmonton during my first year.  I’ve been the owner of Lakeland Dental Clinic in Vermilion since 2005.  I’ve enjoyed serving the public through the various preventative and restorative services we offer.

Outside of the clinic I enjoy time with my wife and kids, motorcycling and other outdoor activities.  I am also very passionate about serving on the Vermilion Fire Department.


Dental Hygienist
I’ve been the dental hygienist at Lakeland Dental Clinic since 2006.  I take pride in directly improving the oral health of our patients.


Registered Dental Assistant
I was born and raised here in Vermilion.  I’ve been with Lakeland Dental Clinic since 2000 where I started as a receptionist.  As my interest grew in the dental field, I decided to take my dental assistant training through NAIT.  I enjoy working with the patients, providing comfort and care.

I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the lake, camping and skiing.


Registered Dental Assistant
I have been a member of this community and dental team since 1992.  Originally from Saskatoon, I have made Vermilion my home.  Most of my assistant training was through NAIT and continuing education through the University of Alberta.   I love taking courses to keep up to date on all aspects of dentistry and look forward to learning more.  Patient comfort is my priority and I enjoy getting to know our patients.

I enjoy spending time with my family, skiing and travelling.  I keep active in the community with various volunteer activities.


I am originally from the Saskatoon area but I have been happy to call Vermilion home since 2004.  I have diplomas in both Child & Youth Care and Office Administration.  I was previously employed by Webb’s Machinery but left to raise my family.  I am happy to be rejoining the work force with the staff at Lakeland Dental Clinic.

I enjoy spending time with my family and volunteering in the community in my spare time.


Receptionist / Administration
As a youth, I grew up in Vermilion.  I trained at NAIT earning a Certificate of Secretarial Arts as well as a Diploma in Office Administration.  I have previously worked for the Edmonton Emergency Response Department and The Institute of Health Economics.  I left work to focus on being a homemaker while raising my children.  I'm now happy to be at Dr. Nelson's dental clinic as the receptionist.
