Dr. Jason Goldthorpe
Dr. Aaron Phan
Dr. Aaron Phan was born and raised in Calgary. He lived there his entire life before moving to Sydney Australia where he studied for 4 years and achieved his DMD. Through his time there, he has developed a special interest in oral surgery and general restorative work, but he aims to be a well-rounded general practitioner.
When dentistry isn’t on his mind, he’s probably thinking about what he’s going to eat for his next meal. He loves food! Dr. Phan enjoys cooking it as much as he does eating it, and he loves trying new dishes and cuisines. Dr. Phan also enjoys traveling, golfing, and is a huge hockey fan (He cheers for the Flames, sorry!). He’s a bit of a techie as well. Whether it be playing games to wind down or tinkering with his computer.
