Dr. Klassen, Dr. Ritch, Dr. Pestova Ritch

I have had the pleasure of providing dental care for the past four decades and the number of long term relationships that have developed over these years truly amazes me. I wish to personally thank you all for your trust and confidence that you extended to my staff and myself over the years. After 40 years in the dental profession I have decided it is time to slow down and spend more time with my family and grandchildren. I will continue practicing dentistry and will be available on a reduced schedule.

I am pleased to announce that Dr. Steven Ritch will be joining me on April 1 to continue your dental care and provide you with the same professional excellence that I have strived for. It has been my privilege over the years to work in a warm environment created by Joanne, Joyce, Jessica, Charlotte, Daniela and Wendy. This kind, skilled dental team will continue to provide this personal care with Steven and myself.  I know you are in good hands.

Steven graduated from the University of Alberta in 2013 and went on to complete a one year general practice residency at the University of Alberta Hospital. Since graduation, Steven has worked in a family based, private practice in Edmonton. He enjoys practicing comprehensive dentistry and believes in putting his patients’ needs and wellbeing first and foremost. Steven has also enjoyed being an active member of the Edmonton community, volunteering at the SHINE Student Dental Clinic, teaching part time at the dental school and serving as an on-call dentist for the University of Alberta Hospital.

Steven and his wife Julia will be welcoming their second child in a few short weeks. Steven is looking forward to joining our team and is very eager to meet all of you.
