Dr. Michelle Lumsdon DDS
Dr. Michelle Lumsdon started Choice Dental Centre in 2005 with the idea of giving patient choices when it comes to their dental health. “I wanted to create a practice that is comfortable and soothing to help our patients achieve their goals.

For this reason, our office’s primary concern is patient comfort assisted by the advances in modern dentistry. Many patients tell us they are surprised by the ease of their visit with us. That is the greatest compliment!”
