St. Vital Dental Centre was established in 1963 by Dr. Robert Ian Stephen ("Dr. Ian") and has been located at the corner of St. Anne's and St. Mary's Roads since opening. Perviously the St. Vital Library, Dr. Ian converted half of the main floor into a dental office when it first opened. The main floor was completely converted into a dental office as the practice grew. In the early 1980's, St. Vital Dental Centre grew with the addition of Dr. Lori Stephen-James ("Dr. Lori"), the daughter of Dr. Ian. Dr. Lori currently leads the St. Vital Dental Centre team. In the mid-1990's, the office was expanded to include the second floor of the current building. In 2015 St. Vital Dental Centre welcomed a third generation to the practice, Dr. Terry James ("Dr. Terry"), who is Dr. Lori's son and Dr. Ian's grandson. Dr. Lori and Dr. Terry work along side a dedicated team of highly trained dental assistants, dental hygenists, and front office staff.
We are very happy to say that many of our patients have been cared for by all 3 generations of dentists, including some who date back to the day the clinic opened. If you or your children are looking for a long-term solution to your oral health care needs, we hope that you consider St. Vital Dental Centre as your dental home.
