Growing up on the family farm just outside of Cardston, AB, Dr. Walburger knew he wanted to work with his hands, so he started his first dental career as a denturist. The surgical aspect of replacing missing teeth with implant-supported dentures was fascinating to him, so he went back to school to become a dentist, pursuing his Bachelor of Science from Lethbridge University and then earning his doctorate from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry.
As a Lethbridge dentist, Dr. Walburger looks at the mouth as a whole—as a reflection of your oral and overall health and with an eye to how he can address your concerns and desires. Getting to know you and your individual needs is Dr. Walburger’s priority so he can not only create the healthy smile you want but also tailor your dental experience to meet your individual needs.
Dr. Walburger and his wife and three children love living in Southern Alberta. It’s a great place to be active in a variety of indoor and outdoor pursuits. The kids enjoy playing soccer, volleyball, and football as well as playing piano and creating beautiful art. Dr. Walburger loves to tinker and always has a project on the go. Some of his hobbies include riding motorcycles and boating in the summer. In winter, he enjoys snowmobiling and playing with the kids and the family dog—a French bulldog named Gus.
Dr. Murray has been in dental practice since 1987 as a general dentist providing dental surgery and dental implants. A key priority of Dr. Murray’s is to provide care and treatment for dental emergencies. Dr. Murray is also the owner and CEO of Able Dental Group.
“My personal hope is that patients appreciate my easy going, caring, and personal bedside manner. I truly enjoy life and live it to the fullest.”
When not providing care at one of the clinics, Dr. Murray loves spending time on his farm, where he has many projects on the go at any given time.
Dr. Jesse Johnson was born and raised in Southern Alberta. He served his church mission in Australia and shortly after his return to Canada he met and married his lovely wife, Angie. They share 3 beautiful children, and together they reside in Raymond, Alberta.
During Dr. Jesse’s missions trip, he grew a profound love for Australia and decided to return and complete dental school there. Dr. Jesse was accepted in both medical and dental school however he ultimately decided to pursue dentistry because of his deep-rooted passion for it. As beautiful as it was in Australia, Dr. Jesse and his wife are Southern Alberta people at heart and are excited to start their lifelong journey promoting dental health in our community.
