Meet Dr. Kamelchuk
D.D.S., M.Sc., D.Ortho., F.R.C.D.(C)
Dr. Lorne Kamelchuk is a Calgary orthodontist who has been practicing orthodontics in Calgary since 1998. He has earned degrees in both dentistry and orthodontics, from the University of Alberta and the University of Toronto, and has a true passion for orthodontics and his patients’ well-being.
“I take orthodontics very seriously, but I make sure it’s enjoyable and that patients are learning throughout treatment as well. Orthodontics can restore a smile and bite, but it can also lead to overall improvement in oral care habits, which will stay with a person for life. I know that my education is never complete either, so I remain genuinely engaged in the orthodontic and oral healthcare communities, either by continually taking courses or teaching them. I enjoy lecturing and teaching but its nice to be a course-participant too!”
In addition to maintaining his Calgary orthodontic practice, Dr. Kamelchuk has also lectured on clinical and specialty orthodontics throughout Canada, the US and in Europe. He is a Clinical Professor of Orthodontics at the University of Alberta, has lectured at several universities across North America, and has presented to various dental and orthodontic societies on both sides of the Pacific. Dr. Kamelchuk is also an Examiner in Orthodontics for the Royal College of Dentists of Canada (RCDC); the national body that certifies Dental Specialists with their qualifying exams upon completing specialty training in Dentistry.
While heavily involved in orthodontics, Dr. Kamelchuk considers his greatest responsibility to be his family. With his wife, Judith who practises as a Board Certified Physiotherapist, the Kamelchuks have been blessed with three daughters and a son.
