Dr. Nathan Muirhead started dreaming of being a dentist at age 13. He moved his family to Victoria, BC from Lethbridge, AB in 2011. Prior to that he practiced dentistry in Alberta for five years. Beyond his strong enthusiasm for general dentistry, Dr. Muirhead has pursued a range of training—based on needs he saw within his family and practice. Seeing the problems that accrue with misaligned teeth and jaws he sought to provide a comprehensive range of Orthodontic treatments starting from early childhood to fully grown adults—without surgery, unless desired. Treating chronic pain patients suffering from headaches and TMJ/TMD is a passion that started with his wife’s pain.
For those requiring tooth replacement, Dr. Muirhead spent 4 years training and providing complex implant treatment in a surgery based clinic. When his Dad and children were diagnosed with sleep apnea, he was pulled into the world of Snoring and Sleep apnea treatment using low profile sleep appliances, and growth appliances for young developing airways/faces. For those with high cosmetic requirements he pursued training with a host of mentors.
Nearly 22 years ago, Dr. Muirhead was married to his sweetheart and they are the proud parents of five children (four boys and one girl with very curly hair). When Dr. Muirhead isn’t curled up with various books, he likes to stand up paddle, wakesurf and foil, go hiking and volunteer in youth and organizations. A favourite memory was a service mission trip to orphanages in Cusco, Peru with his oldest son. He enjoys scuba diving and is a technology enthusiast, with a love for a variety of boardgames and always has a few books on the go.
Dr. Muirhead has rigorously and passionately pursued continuing education in the areas of Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry, Orthodontics, Prosthodontics and Implants (single or full arch), TMJ/TMD, Sleep Apnea and Snoring. He will only take courses that require significant investments of time and study from dentists or physicians with expert qualifications in their fields of study.
Most importantly Dr. Muirhead has put the training into day-to-day use with his dental team to benefit patients.
