We had the privilege of having Dr. Kamelchuk and team work with both of our sons over a 4 year time period. Everyone, from the front desk to the doctor, was amazingly friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable about every aspect of the orthodontic process. Both my sons had amazing orthodontic outcomes but most importantly they always enjoyed going to their appointments. Dr. Kamelchuk is always very professional but is still able to have fun and makes a point of engaging each patient with his funny stories and anecdotes. We got to know all the wonderful dental technicians and thought they were all very good at minimizing any discomfort with their gentle approach and technique. The entire team is very respectful of your time and put great effort into continually keeping on schedule. I would recommend Dr. Kamelchuk and his team to anyone looking for a wonderful orthodontic experience!!
I like that the place has all the disney stuff everywhere. I didn't feel nervous when I walked in because I knew that everything would be so quick. You are very funny have good jokes. The staff are very caring and kind and have a good way of telling people, "Your only gonna hear a quick snip...CRACK!!!". I also like the iPads in the waiting room!
Thanks for being so awesome!!!
A great experience from start to finish. Dr. Kamelchuk's office provides support every step of the way and handles logistics like transferals with efficiency. I was put at ease every time I stepped in there because of the friendly attitude of all the employees and the care they show to all their patients. A great choice if you're thinking about orthodontic procedures for your loved ones or yourself.

A note for Dr. Lorne Kamelchuk
“I take orthodontics very seriously, but I make sure it’s enjoyable and that patients are learning throughout treatment as well. Orthodontics can restore a smile and bite, but it can also lead to overall improvement in oral care habits, which will stay with a person for life. I know that my education is never complete either, so I remain genuinely engaged in the orthodontic and oral healthcare communities, either by continually taking courses or teaching them. I enjoy lecturing and teaching but its nice to be a course-participant too!”
In accumulation to upholding his Calgary orthodontic practice, Dr. Kamelchuk has also lectured on clinical and specialty orthodontics throughout Canada, the US and in Europe. He is a Clinical Professor of Orthodontics at the University of Alberta, has lectured at several universities across North America, and has presented to various dental and orthodontic societies on both sides of the Pacific. Dr. Kamelchuk is also an Examiner in Orthodontics for the Royal College of Dentists of Canada (RCDC); the national body that certifies Dental Specialists with their qualifying exams upon completing specialty training in Dentistry.
