Finally… we are opening our new practice. It has been four long years of planning & preparation & I’m sure I have thought of everything.

I am so excited to be a part of the southwest Edmonton community, this is where I live and am raising my family. Something about this part of town feels special, and I strive to provide a special experience to my patients.I am combining thousands of hours of education and some of the most amazing technology and staff under one roof to offer what I believe to be an unmatched patient experience. I’m honoured and privileged to have this opportunity to serve my neighbours.

2015 will mark my ninth year practicing dentistry and from humble beginnings feel that I am truly finding my stride. My current philosophy is shaped by my experiences in private practice thus far. When I graduated from the U of A dental program in 2006 I was asked to remain at the school as a clinical instructor. It has been said that the highest form of learning is to teach, and in my experience this is irrefutable. When I first began teaching I was surprised to be challenged again and again. The students are sharp, and they force the understanding of fundamentals to refinement and depth.

I was lucky to find an associateship at Meadowlark Dental Centre where under the guidance of two experienced mentors Dr. Ken Luft and Dr. Ed McIntyre I was encouraged to explore my interest in surgery and dental implants. I formed a relationship with Nobel Biocare, the worlds largest dental implant company, and, quite to my surprise and without intention have become one of their top partners.

Despite the success of my implant practice, general dentistry remains my focus. The most rewarding aspect of my profession is the relationships built with families, which as my career progresses, I hope to see grow many generations deep. I endeavour to treat every new patient for a lifetime. With this in mind, my treatment recommendations for each person is tailored for a good outcome for later in life, not just today.

I once attended a motivational seminar where the speaker said: “If you serve people unselfishly to the very best of your ability every time you wont be able to stop success. It will break down your door and engulf you.” I hope to prove him right.

So, with the support of my amazing family and the confidence of an incredible team we commence a new adventure.

Welcome to Southwest Smiles. I am privileged to serve you!

Dr. Jessica DeSerres

B.Sc, D.D.S.

I am so happy to be a part of the amazing team at Southwest Smiles. Together we are committed to providing exceptional patient care to all generations.

Originally from Calgary, I completed a Bachelor of Biological Sciences degree with a minor in Psychology from the University of Alberta. I was accepted into the highly competitive Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta where I completed my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. Throughout my 9 years of university, I was awarded a number of scholarships based on academic standing and community involvement through my extensive volunteerism.

I grew to love the City of Edmonton for its world-class festivals, amazing restaurants and of course our famous river valley. My husband Josh and I have built our lives here in Edmonton and have become actively involved in the community. In my spare time, I love to travel, cook, dance and spend time with family and friends.

I love being a dentist because I am able to build a long-lasting relationship with my patients. I strive to be compassionate, approachable and to provide exceptional patient care. Some of my most rewarding experiences have come from making anxious patients feel comfortable enough that they look forward to coming to the dentist. I believe in working with patients to find the best treatment option for their specific situation.

I look forward to meeting you, building a relationship, and creating a smile that you are proud to show off.

Dr. Lucas Milne

B.Sc, D.D.S.

I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta where I attended the University of Alberta and completed both a Bachelor of Science Degree and Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. My passion for dentistry is driven by my love for patient interaction and interest in cutting-edge dental technologies. Not only do I strive to improve the oral health of my patients, but I enjoy performing cosmetic dental procedures that can positively impact a
patient’s self-esteem.

During my free time you can find me playing hockey in the winter and golfing in the summer. Moreover, I am a devoted Edmonton Oilers and Edmonton Eskimos fan! With a keen interest in orthodontics and endodontics, I hope to specialize in either one of those fields in the future.

I look forward to meeting you!

B.Sc, D.D.S.

I am pleased to join Dr. Susoeff and his wonderful team at Southwest Smiles. I am excited to be working with the most advanced technology and premium materials in a warm and welcoming clinic.

Born in the Maritimes, I was raised from a young age, on a mixed farm in the badlands north of
Drumheller. I attended the University of Alberta, graduating from the Faculty of Dentistry. I have had a career-long commitment to professional development and continuing education. I have also had the privilege of working as a clinical instructor at the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, training dental students in restorative techniques. I enjoy the challenges and student interaction of teaching. I am passionate about encouraging and supporting the next generation of dentists.

Over decades of practice, I have become known for my kind and gentle approach. I learned early on that patients don’t care how much I know, until they know how much I care. I promote interception and prevention to encourage a lifetime of oral health. I pursue excellence in dentistry and love seeing my patients smile.

My wife Shelley and I have lived in southwest Edmonton for over two decades, raising our three children. Outside of dentistry, I enjoy family time, cycling, photography, and I am an avid reader.

I look forward to meeting you and developing a long term relationship in which we will work together to make you smile.

Having lived in several countries, as well as multiple provinces across Canada, I’m happy to finally be settling down in Edmonton after becoming part of the amazing team at Southwest Smiles.

I grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia, before moving to Montreal to compete as part of the Canadian national wrestling team. I continued my education at Dalhousie University and eventually moved to Australia to complete my dental studies on the beautiful Gold Coast. When not busy studying at university, I was busy coaching wrestling, learning to scuba dive, or enjoying the beaches.

I went on to work in multiple rural and coastal communities in Australia and British Columbia before making the move to Alberta.

I am excited to be working with a great team and the most advanced dental technologies available to make sure you receive the best care and to ensure a lifetime of smiles.

I hope to see you at the clinic!

I am so incredibly blessed to be part of the Southwest Smiles team! I am very passionate about all aspects of dentistry; you’ll most likely see me running around the clinic trying to help everyone. I became a dental assistant because I grew up with severely crowded teeth. From then on, I knew I wanted to help others create the smile that they would feel confident in. Our top priority is for you and your loved ones to feel at ease while getting your dental procedures done.

RDA/ Dental Assistant

Growing up I had a lot of orthodontic treatment completed to create a smile that I now love to share with the world. The practice I had attended was full of happy people ready to make the best experience possible for their patients. This was something I was always wanting to have in a work environment growing up and now I luckily got my wish with Southwest Smiles! Everyone here is super friendly, understanding and willing to give the best patient care possible. On my free time outside of the dental world, I enjoy playing tennis, badminton, going for runs and horseback riding. You'll also find me tinkering around on the piano as well as teaching it to anyone who enjoys music as much as me! I hope to help give you the best patient care I have always received, as you are number one in my books. Remember that you are never fully dressed without a smile and I hope to see yours here soon!

RDA / Registered Dental Assistant

I have had a passion for dentistry since I was a child, influenced by both my beloved late grandfather and uncle who taught me the value of a beautiful smile. I became an RDA in 2013 from the NAIT program and I'm looking forward to achieve higher educational goals in the dental field. I really appreciate good dialogue, honesty, organization and teamwork. These are qualities that are essential in our work environment. I enjoy reading and good music. I also have a passion for traveling and meeting new people. Some of the great rewards of working with the Southwest team is the sense of competence and progress, the recognition and respect for professionals and patients from different parts of the world, the enhancement of relationship between patient-professional, and the enjoyable working atmosphere. I look forward to have you, the patient, as part of our team.

RDA/ Registered Dental Assistant

I fell in love with teeth when I was 13 years old. Going once a month to see the Dentist and all the staff that worked there, was one of my favorite things to look forward to. This experience is what made me decide I wanted to be apart of the dental field when I grew up. Fast forward to 2008 and I’m graduating NAIT with my Dental Assisting Certificate. I strive to give you the same warm and inviting experience that I had whenever I visited the dentist. When I’m not at work, I’m scrapbooking or painting. When it’s nice out, I'm biking and hiking. I feel absolutely blessed to be apart of the Southwest Smiles family. I can’t wait to meet you and your beautiful smiles!

RDH/ Dental Hygienist

The very first time I walked into Southwest Smiles, I knew right away that this was the kind of team I wanted to surround myself with. A Warm, Caring, and talented team, who provides outstanding client-centered care, and education to our patients. I am originally from Kenora Ontario, and fairly new to the Edmonton area. I decided to move out to Edmonton with my fiancé for work, and to be a little closer to my brother. Throughout the years I have moved around a few times, and recently I enjoy yoga, camping, the lake, shopping, music, and spending time with friends/family. I also recently tried zip-lining this fall too, and had a blast! moved from Montreal. I have always had a fascination with the dental field, and knew it was something that I wanted a career in. I completed my dental hygiene program in Montreal and I find great joy in caring for my patients and helping to keep their gums healthy. The words that I like to carry with me during my day are “treat others how you would want to be treated.” As a health professional, it’s important to me to build a great relationship with you, the patient, and make you feel comfortable during your visit.
