Dr. John VandenBrink, DDS

A passionate Edmonton Dentist with over 25 Years of Experience

“I love dentistry for its many challenges, and how it combines a lot of my favorite hobbies including the opportunity to be artistic. What I most enjoy is getting my patients through their dental procedures with a smile – it’s very rewarding.”

As a native of Edmonton, AB, Dr. VandenBrink currently resides in Sherwood Park with his wife and three beautiful children. With a degree in Dentistry and Chemical Engineering from the University of Alberta, Dr. VandenBrink has been practicing dentistry since 1992.

Encompassing expert clinical skills, admirable attention to detail, and what his patients can only refer to as a “caring demeanor, and warm and playful personality”, Dr. VandenBrink is devoted to changing the stigma about visiting the dentist by making dental “fun”.

Dr. VandenBrink offers patients a wide array of dental services including preventive care, dentistry for children, emergency dental care, cosmetic dentistry and restorative procedures such as teeth whitening, ceramic crowns, bridges, and veneers.

On his free time you can find Dr. VandenBrink barbequing, cooking and cycling with his family, golfing, spending time at the gym, reading, and model-making. His bucket list items include visiting Asia and seeing “Big Rock” in concert.
