Dr. Frank Neves


Dr. Neves completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from the University Of Alberta in 2007. He realized his passion for Dentistry when he took his niece for an emergency dental treatment and was blown away at how efficiently and relatively quickly the dentist was able to take her out of severe pain. At the time, he was working as a nurse in Neuro ICU at the University of Alberta Hospital and was considering Medical School but ultimately decided on Dentistry because he wanted to be able to provide immediate care and relief for patients.

Dr. Neves is a proud member of the Alberta Dental Association, as well as the Canadian Dental Association. He has worked as a dentist for over 10 years and spent the majority of those years treating patients in St. Albert.

He has been married to his wife Yana since 2010. Together they are busy raising their two children Frank and Ella. In the summer months you can find Frank working on his golf game. In the winter months his family loves discovering new places around the world.
