Doctor Profiles

Dr. Alison Fransen

Dr. Alison Fransen, General Dentist

Dr. Alison Fransen is a 1997 graduate of The University of British Columbia.

“When I was young I loved visiting my dentist. The receptionist knew my name and often asked me about my day at school, the dental assistant remembered my favourite fluoride flavour and the dentist was always gentle and kind. As a patient I enjoyed visiting my dentist’s office and now as a dentist I have recreated that same friendly atmosphere for you in the Wesbrook Dental Centre.

I am proud of the excellent team at our office and know you will be impressed too. The office is bright and modern with your comfort and dental care in mind. Behind every beautiful smile is a healthy mouth at the Wesbrook Dental Centre.”
