My path to dentistry started when I was very young.
I took great interest in my science classes and developed a passion for understanding facts, principles, theories, and models that explain the workings of the natural world. I was fascinated at how, with the use of science, treatment and medicine could help people and it was then that I distinctly remember deciding I wanted to be a doctor.
I grew up with my step-father, Dr. Steven Faigan, a renowned local periodontist, who encouraged me to consider dentistry as a career. As I neared completion of my undergraduate degree, long-time family friend, Dr. Don MacRae, championed dentistry as the ‘best job in the world’.
I spent time shadowing at his clinic, as well as other clinics around the Okanagan, and was soon convinced to exclusively pursue dentistry.
Five years later, and I have to agree with Dr. Don: being a dentist really is the best job in the world!
I genuinely like being able to help people each and every day. Whether it’s getting someone out of pain, or helping them correct cosmetic issues with their smile, each case presents its own challenges and demands that keeps the job exciting.
I love the artistic nature of restorative dentistry, the use of ever emerging new technologies, and most of all the opportunity to work with a fantastic group of staff and patients alike!

Dr. Alisa Edmond
Welcome Dr. Alisa Edmond!
Dr. Ali Edmond is a general dentist that focuses her practice on patient centered care, education, and prevention. Hailing from Whitehorse, Yukon, she earned her BSc in Microbiology from UBC Okanagan in 2010 and her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Alberta in 2016. After graduation, Dr. Edmond returned to the Okanagan to be in the area, and with the people, that she fell in love with during her undergraduate studies. She understands that dentistry isn’t “one size fits all” and believes in working with her patients so that they can come to the best choices together, and then being there with them every step of the way with a positive attitude and a lame joke or two.
Dr. Edmond is comfortable with all aspects of general dentistry, and is passionate about continuing to grow her skillset and knowledge through continuing education. She is a member of the Kois Center for Advanced Dental Learning based out of Seattle, Washington, and has completed her level 2 certification at the Pacific Training Institute for Facial Aesthetics for the use of botulinum toxin (Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®) for cosmetic procedures and pain management. In addition, Dr. Edmond has a special interest in clear aligner therapy (Invisalign®) and continues to grow her knowledge in this area at every opportunity.
In her free time, Dr. Edmond enjoys spending time with her two-favourite people, her partner and their new baby boy, and taking advantage of the beautiful Okanagan scenery and weather. In the summer, she can be found hiking, kayaking, and attempting to keep her garden alive. In the cooler seasons, she spends more time indoors with her family, but still insists on going for a walk outside on all her days off, rain, shine, or snow.
