Since graduating from the University of Saskatchewan in 1996 as a Doctor of Dental Medicine, Dr. Chad Fletcher has been practicing in his very busy and family owned dental practice, located in sunny Weyburn, SK. Not stopping there, a thirst for being the best has driven Dr. Chad to never stop learning, and he has logged over 1000 continuing education hours to supplement his over 20 years of practical experience.
Dr. Chad is an incredible fit here in Kelowna, and not just because of his affable personality, and warm smile, but also his commitment to dentistry. His love for the field takes him “back to school” 2 or 3 times each year and on top of his education in all aspects of General Dentistry, he has developed his passion in the field of orthodontics, and has become experienced using CEREC, Cone Beam Imaging and … Lasers …. yes! We use Lasers here at Care Dental (cue the Austin Powers jokes).
Married with two energetic teenagers, Dr. Chad and family love the Kelowna lifestyle, and spend “non-looking in your mouth” time coaching soccer, golfing, skiing and spending time with family at the lake.

Dr. Justin enjoys all forms of general dentistry including extractions, endodontics, restorative fillings, smile reconstruction using prosthodontics and working with children who benefit from nitrous oxide sedation.

Feeling that pull to the beautiful West Coast, Dr. Justin brings his positive energy, enthusiasm and clinical expertise to Kelowna and, more specifically, to his patients at Care Dental. When not practicing dentistry, you can find him exploring the great outdoors with his Saint Lucian rescue pups, focusing on a healthy lifestyle at the gym, attending Spear Study Club meetings and spending time with loved ones.
