Meet the Strathcona Dental Clinic Team
Located in the heart of South Edmonton in Old Strathcona – just off Whyte Ave and minutes away from the University of Alberta, Strathcona Dental Clinic has cared for the dental needs of Edmontonians for many decades. Multiple generations of the same family call this dental clinic their own.
At Strathcona Dental, we value our patients’ health and comfort, and we continuously strive to incorporate the latest advances in general and cosmetic dentistry, pain management and anxiety control (through sedation dentistry). We have helped many overcome their fear of dentistry and maintain their beautiful smiles and look forward to helping you. Book a checkup/exam or request a consultation for an upcoming procedure with Dr. Wehbe or Dr. Laatsch.
Dr. Abdul Wehbe – General Dentist
Our team at Strathcona Dental Clinic will give you a warm welcome and our ongoing commitment to your dental health.
With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Wehbe makes continuing education in the latest dental research a priority. His philosophy is that the best dental health is achieved when the dentist is educated in current research and maintains an ongoing relationship with each patient. He looks forward to working together with you to achieve and maintain a healthy smile.
Dr. Wehbe has trained with some of the world’s most prominent Anxiety Free Dental Specialists (sedation dentistry) and is a member of the Edmonton Dental Society, the Alberta Dental Association, and the Canadian Dental Association.
Dr. Devon Laatsch - General Dentist
Dr. Devon Laatsch is a 2012 graduate of the University of Alberta, and is pleased to have joined the team at the Strathcona Dental Clinic. He enjoys all aspects of general family dentistry, from young children to complex adult restorative cases.
“I have a conservative approach to dentistry and feel that patient education and involvement are paramount to my practice. I appreciate patients that are interested in their treatment and are comfortable with communicating their dental needs. I understand the invasiveness that our profession entails and try to make the experience as comfortable as possible.”
Dental missions are an important part of Dr. Laatsch’s career. He is committed to Guatemala dental mission every 2 years with a large Edmonton team. It is an amazing opportunity to provide access to care for people in pain and suffering.
Away from dentistry, Dr. Laatsch is married with a young son. His hobbies include aquariums, fishing and the outdoors.
