Dr. Elisabeth Specht, D.D.S.
Dr. Elisabeth Specht is a proud native of Lacombe, growing up on a farm just off Milton Road. She graduated from the University of Alberta with her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2007. She then completed a General Practice Residency at the University of Alberta Hospital. For five years, she happily worked there to treat severely medically compromised patients. Following her residency, she worked in the Northwest Territories for several years.
Through these experiences, she realized her biggest passion was in dentistry, specifically dental surgery and dental sedation. She also recognized the challenges faced by patients who live in smaller municipalities in accessing dental care; this is why Dr. Specht has partnered with several clinics throughout Alberta to make dental surgery and sedation more accessible.
On a more personal level, Dr. Specht loves to spend quality time with her beloved husband, Bernhard, her family and friends. She also enjoys cuddling with her dogs, playing the piano, gardening, and cooking. Travelling is also high on her list of favourite things to do. She has travelled to Colombia, Peru, Nicaragua, Cambodia and Ecuador with the dental charity Kindness in Action to provide dental care to people in remote and under-served areas.
