Dr. Glen Jefferies

Education

Dr. Glen is an “Alberta boy through and through.” He grew up in nearby Drayton Valley and stayed there until graduating from high school. At that time, he decided to trade small-town life for the big city of Paris, France to volunteer for his church for two years. Afterwards, he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Hawaii and then moved to Edmonton to study dentistry at the University of Alberta. With Dr. Albert Voravong, he is co-owner of Parkstone Dental in Sherwood Park. 

Treatment Philosophy

When determining which treatments are best for your smile, Dr. Glen will examine your mouth, your health and medical history, and find out what it is you like and don’t like about your teeth and gums. An effective communicator, he will be upfront and honest about the condition of your smile and tell you what steps need to be taken to reach the outcome you desire. 

Outside The Office

Dr. Glen is happily married and has four kids who mean the world to him. They live in Sherwood Park and love spending time in the community they call home. Over the years, Parkstone Dental became another one of his babies. “I have taken a lot of pride in watching it grow,” he says.

Dr. Jennifer Nguyen

Education

After earning her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Alberta in 2012, Dr. Jennifer Nguyen completed a one-year dental residency to fine tune her skills and gain additional experience working as a general dentist.

Treatment Philosophy

If you ask Dr. Nguyen the number one thing you could do for your mental and physical health, she will immediately tell you her health philosophy – that prevention is everything. Focusing on prevention is her goal so you can enjoy a healthy, pain-free smile that supports your confidence. Helping you take care of yourself before things get worse is her goal – whether it’s preventing dental issues or treating them conservatively if they do arise.

Outside The Office

When she’s not helping others as a dentist in Sherwood Park, Dr. Nguyen appreciates all she has here as a life-long Edmonton resident. She loves the community and people, and is the Alberta director for a non-profit dental organization. Dr. Nguyen was looking forward to marrying her fiancé Bill in 2020, when COVID-19 postponed their plans, but they plan to reschedule as soon as they can. When she has time, Dr. Nguyen enjoys working out, reading, and gardening.
