Dr. Chan once aspired to be a large animal veterinarian, and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Zoology from the University of Calgary. However, after a near-asthma attack at the horse races one summer ended his veterinarian pursuits, he moved to Halifax to complete a Master of Science in Ecology and Evolution from Dalhousie University. After realizing the number of post-doctoral applicants far outweighed the number of available positions in evolutionary ecology, he turned to dentistry and obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Toronto. This turned out to be the best decision of his life, and Dr. Chan loves coming to work each day to care for his patients. When he’s not treating patients, Dr. Chan is an avid road cyclist, a musician/composer, and a dedicated family man.
