Hello from Louisiana to our Bear Creek Dental family!

Thank you for your support at Bear Creek Dental Clinic over the last several months as we continue to build our community through these challenging times!

When Covid19 shutdown the borders between Canada and the USA several months ago, I was visiting family in Louisiana. I quickly realized running Bear Creek Dental from a different country does not allow the patient care that is required to continue to be Grande Prairie’s best dental office.

With this in mind, I personally called Dr. Gary Cymbaluk whom I have worked beside many times. Dr. Cymbaluk’s care, dedication to the craft of Dentistry, giftedness with kids, and love for his family, lines up with our “family first” culture at Bear Creek Dental Clinic. 

Dr. Cymbaluk is not only my friend, but has grown up in the Peace Region and understands the demands of putting our “family” of patients at Bear Creek first. His quality of patient care is equal to the standards I set for myself, and he has shown this standard repeatedly in his dental practice. As I am still in the U.S.A., we have decided together the best course of action is for Dr. Cymbaluk to take ownership of Bear Creek Dental, while I take a permanent sabbatical from dentistry. This transition has been smooth, and the patient care has continued to be superb under the excellent staff, and our dentists Dr. He and Dr. Cho.

I look forward to returning to Grande Prairie in the future and hearing from Dr. Cymbaluk how the “family” of clients at Bear Creek Dental has continued to grow and continue the best care for families that is offered in Grande Prairie.
Under Dr. Cymbaluk’s leadership I am confident that Bear Creek Will continue to offer the highest level of dental care for your family in Grande Prairie.

Best regards,
Dr. Jared Palmer

And welcome Dr. Gary Cymbaluk!
