Dental Clinic Calgary NE

Dr. Laura Brescia, D.D.S., B.Sc.

Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Dr. Laura Brescia has been practicing dentistry in Calgary for over 15 years and is happy to call this city home. She did her undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Victoria and completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Western Ontario.

She is known for her gentle and caring manner with patients. Many patients who have been nervous about dental work in the past have been surprised to find themselves comfortable and relaxed in her care. As a mother of three young children, she has a special affinity for working with children and their families.

Dr. Brescia considers furthering her knowledge an integral part of her practice and is well experienced in all aspects of dentistry. Her focus is on preventative dentistry and she believes that the best dentistry results in the need for no dental treatment at all. She averages well over 100 hours of continuing education per year and is involved in several study clubs, to the benefit of her dental practice and patients.

The numerous hours Dr. Brescia spends on her continuing education allows her to practice dentistry in a comprehensive manner. She also loves how attending courses continually brings back her excitement about dentistry, making every work day enjoyable for her. She wants to stay current on new techniques and the best materials, allowing her to provide her patients with a wealth of options for treatment.

Dr. Laura is an avid runner, competing in numerous marathons, including the Boston Marathon twice. She has now transitioned to ultra marathons and competed in the Lost Soul 100km race. Currently she is in training for the Canadian Death Race. On weekends she enjoys skiing, cycling, back country camping and hiking in the mountains with her family.
