Dr. Michael Webster | D.M.D.

Dr. Webster was born and raised in Kelowna, and is a proud graduate of Rutland Senior Secondary. He attended UBC-Okanagan where he earned a B.Sc. with a major in Biology and completed his Doctorate of Medicinal Dentistry at UBC-Vancouver. Following graduation he moved to Fort St. John to practice dentistry as an associate which allowed him to diversify and shape his skills. In January 2013, he purchased Kelowna Dental Centre.

Dr. Webster practices all forms of general dentistry including endodontics (root canal treatment), crowns & bridges, cosmetic dentistry, and extractions. He has a particular interest in oral surgery, including wisdom teeth extractions and dental implants for which he has completed extensive training. Dr. Webster enjoys educating patients on the longterm benefits associated with dental implants and providing all related services. He is also pleased to offer Intravenous Sedation at his clinic because of the significant role it plays in helping patients achieve their dental needs.

Dr. Webster and his family have put down firm roots in Kelowna and he loves developing and establishing life-long relationships with his patients. He establishes treatment plans that will best serve the patient over time, considering the long-term picture and prioritizing treatment accordingly. When talking to Dr. Webster it is apparent that he genuinely cares and has your best interest in mind. He is a conscientious practitioner and has made a personal vow to ALWAYS practice evidence based dentistry.

Dr. Webster spends his free time maintaining a healthy lifestyle in the Okanagan and enjoys a variety of outdoor activities with his family. He also enjoys hitting the hockey rink, annual fishing trips on the ocean, and traveling to sunny destinations. He married his wife Danielle in 2013 whom he met while attending Okanagan University College. Together they have a pug named Ugh and welcomed their first child Elizabeth in 2015.
