Our Dentists

Dr. Harold Elke, DDS

“Performing Dentistry with Integrity”

Dr. Harold Elke grew up in Southern Alberta and attended the University of Lethbridge, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 1978. He went on to attend the University of Alberta Dental School. Upon completion in 1982, he returned to the Lethbridge area to start the first dental practice in the town of Picture Butte, and he took over the operation of the Milk River dental practice as well. In 1995, Dr. Elke started his first dental practice in Lethbridge, and finally in 2004, he designed and built the ultra-modern Integrity Dental Centre in the heart of downtown Lethbridge.

 

Dr. Elke is a general family dentist who initially focused on orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry. He has practised both at a high level of understanding for over 25 years. In the last 5 years, he has now focused his practice in the area of BOTOX® and lip fillers. Dr. Elke is one of a handful of dentists in Canada to be trained in advanced filler techniques.

 

Professional Associations

 

Dr. Elke was the founder of the first dental study club in Lethbridge, the Lethbridge Association for Progressive Dentistry (LAPD), and works closely with many of his colleagues to promote the dental community’s education in Lethbridge.

 

Outside of His Dental Practice

 

Dr. Elke is the proud father of two beautiful daughters, Arielle and Bianca. He is a licensed scuba diver, skydiver, airplane pilot and helicopter pilot. Travel is a passion for Dr. Elke. This passion has led him to perform dentistry out of a backpack while in the northern highlands of Thailand and in the Amazon jungle of Peru.

Dr. Richard Jahn

Dr. Richard Jahn is a general dentist who has been serving the Lethbridge and surrounding communities since 2010. He is a graduate from the University of Saskatchewan College of Dentistry and has continued his informal dental education with a focus on high-quality, long-lasting and aesthetic dental restorations.

 

Dr. Jahn has implemented the Bioclear Method into his practice for the last 5 years. He has completed over 100 anterior aesthetic Bioclear cases and has restored hundreds more using the Biofit matrices for posterior teeth. He works closely with Dr. David Clark, the creator of the Bioclear Method, and has proctored several courses at the Learning Centre in Tacoma Washington, as well as guest lectured with Dr. Clark in both Canada and the Unites States.

 

He loves his wife Krystyn and four children, Greta, Ozzie, Hazel and Eve more than anything else. They enjoy spending time in the pool he built with his own hands during the summer months (there’s a good story there), surfing at the YMCA and snowboarding in the winter.
