Hi, I’m Dr. Alex Layton. I obtained my Bachelor of Science and my Doctor in Dental Surgery at the University of Alberta. I have been practicing in Calgary for the past 30 years.
In my early teens, I had a series of traumatic events that resulted in losing multiple front teeth. Due to these personal losses, I have developed a high level of dental anxiety and fear. As a result I have great empathy toward my patients and the fears they have both about previous dental experiences and having current dental treatment.
I am focused on caring for anxious adults. I really enjoy the big smiles on patients’ faces when we have made a significant improvement to their smile. I really appreciated hearing words of relief when a patient leaves the chair realizing things are not as they were in the past.
I strive to have an open conversation with my patients to help build a trusting relationship. I will strive to listen to and ease your fears, concerns or worries. I want you to know the options.
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and especially enjoy seeing the difference I can make in the lives of patients on a daily basis. I love expanding my training with continuing education. Over the years I’ve taken course in:
All of my continuing education has helped me provide more choices and comfort for my patients.
During my time away from the office, I enjoy reading, playing cards with my kids, spending time with my grandchildren and going for walks with my wife. I love sports, and enjoy cheering on my favourite teams, the Calgary Flames and the Toronto Blue Jays.
I welcome new patients. Drop by and let me help take care of you and your family.Book with Dr. Layton
