General Dentist

BSc. Molecular Genetics University of Alberta 2000
Doctor of Dental Surgery University of Alberta 2004

I strive every day to be positive and to treat people as I would like to be treated.

I grew up about 50km southwest of Bentley in a log house on a small family farm that I’m still proud to be a part of today. My wife, Julie, and I live 10 minutes from town and are excited to be a part of the Bentley community. I also work at a large practice in Red Deer one day a week focusing on implant supported dentures.

My main personal interests are sports, playing music (mostly guitar) and horse ranching. I enjoy skiing, hockey, golf, tennis, volleyball, and anything that involves some type of exercise with a social side. I have always called Alberta home and I love living here, regardless of the harsh winter weather. I was a rodeo cowboy, in what seems like a previous life, for over 20 years. I consider myself first, and foremost, a cowboy. My parents and Julie and I raise and train rodeo bucking horses.

Julie Malcolm

RN University of Calgary 2006

Julie is the greatest person I have ever met. We have been married since 2009 and I feel very honored she is willing to spend so much time with me. She is responsible for the tasteful renovation of this building for dental use and is also our infection control guru and dental RN for surgical procedures. She has 2 other jobs. One as a part-time Operating Room Nurse in Red Deer and two, as an OT specialist with Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) in not-so-touristy places.

She is from the Sunshine Coast north of Vancouver and we enjoy visiting there a couple times a year. She is the primary caregiver of our 2 dogs, 2 horses, and too many cats as well as an incredible chef and she treats my staff to lunch one day every week she is home.

Julie also likes playing music (mostly piano), and spending time with animals or humans in need. She also has a competitive sporting side, but her favorite activity is swimming – preferably an ocean.

I’ve been a dentist in several places in central Alberta over the last 40 years. I had retired, but decided I needed to keep doing this job for a while longer because I enjoy meeting and helping people people. I am married to my wife Teresa.

Steri Tech 

 

I was born and raised in Red Deer, but completed high school here in Bentley. I gained interest in the dental field, so I obtained a diploma as a Dental Administrative Assistant. Since starting at BFD, Dr. W has allowed me to expand my skills and I am now the steri technician, and jack of all trades in the office!  My husband Trent and I live on his family farm in between Bentley and Rimbey. We enjoy spending our time playing baseball in the Bentley Couch Potato League, camping, and spending time with friends and family.

Registered Dental Hygienist

 

I grew up in Ponoka, Alberta and went to hygiene school in Mississauga, Ontario in 2010 and graduated from The Canadian Academy of Dental Hygiene with my diploma in 2012. For 8 years I worked at Aurora Dental Group in Lacombe and now I am excited to be with Bentley Family Dentistry meeting neighbours and community members. I live just west of Bentley on a farm with my husband Colin, and two kids, Sofie and Jack. Right now my spare time consists of raising two kids, cooking for the farm boys, gardening and spending time in my yard! 

I have loved becoming a member of the Bentley community and look forward to meeting more people and getting more involved!

Norma Spelrem

Registered Dental Assistant

 

I have been in the Dental Profession for 30+ years. I am a graduate of the NAIT Dental Assisting program.  I have had amazing opportunities to expand my skills with continuing education and  to be able to utilize these skills to aide in a wide variety of dental procedures that are offered to enhance dental @care.I love my job helping people with their dental needs.  I enjoy getting to know our clients, they brighten my days. I met Dr. Wyzykoski when he first started practicing dentistry.  I was so impressed with his genuine concern for his patients’ individual needs, that when he opened Bentley Family Dentistry, I did not hesitate to join his team.  My husband Roger and I live in Ponoka where he operates a  Sand & Gravel Trucking business.  We have three wonderful sons, and three beautiful grandchildren. We spent many hours at hockey, baseball, soccer, basketball games and track and field events, cheering them on.  We enjoy camping and spending  time with friends and family.

Reception

 

Hi there!  I grew up on a farm north of Bentley and now my husband, our three sons, and I live west of Bentley on a small cattle farm. We run a backhoe business and I am the broker/owner of Real Estate Girls Inc.

I love being involved in and working in our amazing community! You will likely find me around the town selling real estate, getting a coffee at the best coffee shop around, torturing myself at Bootcamp, skiing at Medicine Lodge Ski Hill, or simply walking around town with some great friends.  It’s amazing to live so near a great beach and I feel blessed to be able to work in a community with such wonderful people.
