Dr. Jason Cameron
Dr. Jason Cameron was born in Fort Saskatchewan in 1977. He grew up in the Fort working as a pizza delivery boy for Gus's for 6 years during high school. He then attended the University of Alberta in 1999, where he completed his 4 year dentistry degree in 2003. He practiced dentistry in Edmonton until 2005 when he purchased a dental practice in a small town called LaCrete AB. In December of 2011 Jason met Tammy and in 2013 they married in July in Fort Sask and the LaCrete practice was sold in September of that year. Jason now has 2 little boys, Jace and Charlie and is very excited to grow his family and start a dental practice with his wife in the place that he grew up in. Although the city has grown so much since he last lived here in 1999, it still feels like a small town with a close knit community.
Dr. Tammy Cameron
Dr. Tammy Cameron grew up in the small town of North Battleford, Saskatchewan. She moved to Edmonton to attend the University of Alberta and completed a bachelor of science undergrad in 2006, a Dental Hygiene diploma 2008 and her Dentistry Degree in 2012. She was Class President of her Dentistry Program and was involved in many different organizations throughout her school years. After graduation, she knew she wanted to work in a small town, so she started to work as a Dentist in Redwater, north of Fort Saskatchewan. Although she is a proud Saskatchewanian, (as seen by her Roughrider gear scattered throughout the clinic), she met Dr. Jason Cameron in her last year of dental school, fell in love with him and his hometown of Fort Saskatchewan. Since then, they have welcomed four boys, Jace 8, Charlie 7, Cody 1 and Baby Brett. Tammy's passion for dentistry is almost as much as her passion for meeting patients and hearing their stories and experiences.
Jace, Charlie, Cody, Brett Cameron
The Cameron Boys are our cutest little greeters. They test out all of our waiting room toys, critique our Xbox games and run the halls. They are great tour guides of where all the treasure chests are in the office. They enjoy hockey, soccer and hide and seek.
