Redcliff Family Dental Centre is committed to building long-term relationships between our staff, patients, and the community of Redcliff and area. We strive to provide consumer-friendly dental services the whole family can value and afford in a happy, safe environment.
Each patient deserves our focused attention and best efforts to make the experience one that stands far above the norm.
A comprehensive approach to dental care is the foundation of our practice. Our goal is to maintain a quality and service-oriented practice that offers prevention, aesthetic smile enhancement, and function.
We love our technology at Redcliff Family Dental Centre. We are happy to offer our patients same day crowns, digital x-rays and digital impressions that eliminates the need for dental impressions.

Having always lived in the Maritimes, Dr. Solven moved over ten years ago to Medicine Hat and now calls it home. He loves the weather and the availability of family-centred activities that he enjoys with his wife, Dr. Leanne Doughty, and three young children. Dr. Solven appreciates that Redcliff is close to a large city but has a small town feel. He is a member of the Medicine Hat Kinsmen Society, enjoys swimming, cooking and photography. What was meant to be a short-term move has turned into a life-time commitment for Dr. Solven.
