Gallery Dental began in 1999 when Dr. Aaron Snidal opened Dufferin Dental Centre in Carman, Manitoba. The clinic was originally equipped with used equipment and as Shannon, our original team member would tell you, there wasn’t a front desk on her first day.
The Carman location has seen many changes since its humble beginnings. Today it is one of the most technologically advanced clinics in the province, and in the country. It had the first dental CT scan owned by a GP; it has three dental lasers, digital imaging, and an in-house CAD CAM ceramic lab as well as utilizes all electric drills. The staff has grown to include three assistants, two administrative team members, two dentists, a denturist, two anesthetists, two hygienists, and a chief operating officer.
In March 2014 we purchased a dental practice in La Salle, Manitoba from Dr. Salama. Prior to this, Dr. Snidal and family had purchased a home in La Salle in order to be closer to their eldest’s school. When the opportunity to purchase a third clinic in this wonderful community presented itself we jumped at the chance!
The addition of a third practice prompted us to rebrand our clinics, all of which now fall under the Gallery Dental Centre umbrella. An added benefit of this change is that is has created an environment conducive to team-building and a collective pride in our organization.
