In 2012, Dr. David Osborne moved to Cairns, Australia, to pursue a dentistry career, completing his Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 2016 at James Cook University. In Australia, Dr. Dave was fortunate to have many opportunities to explore the outback, as well as pursue his favourite pastime – fishing, including fly fishing for tuna while on placement in rural and remote Far North Queensland. Dr. Dave loves to swap fishing stories.
Before commencing his dentistry career, Dr. Dave took time off of academics to focus on a career playing hockey, which included two years in the AJHL and a season with U of A Golden Bears. Playing hockey allowed him to participate in volunteer work, including the H.E.R.O.S program, which uses hockey to teach life skills and empower underprivileged children. This exposed Dr. Dave to the value of community involvement and the personal satisfaction provided by helping others.
Dr. Dave is excited to return to his hometown of Edmonton to join the team at Heritage Dental Centre, which is where he received his first dental care as a young boy. With his passion for dentistry and his focus on new technologies, Dr. Dave is committed to providing his patients with the best care available.
