“I pride myself on providing comprehensive, patient-centered care using the most up-to-date equipment for patients of all ages. I strongly believe in conservative and preventative treatment and try to present information and treatment options in a way that’s easy for patients to understand.

What Our Clients Say

Tara

"After experiencing other dentists in the area, I am very impressed with Talbot Family Dental. With their quick and helpful responses through e-mail, very thorough questions to help understand my situation, and great knowledge of their up-to-date equipment. Miranda, the dental assistant is very kind, knowledgeable of the field, and also helped distract me from my dental anxiety with her humour. Dr. Erin Gorman is compassionate, very knowledgeable and helped correct a previous dentist's efforts to fill a stubborn cavity and I am so happy with the result of the tooth. I am very grateful to have visited!"
