Dr. Ed Mahan

I was born and raised in Ventura County in Southern California. At 13 years of age I visited the Dentist for the first time. Unfortunately I needed several small fillings (ones I would only seal these days). Later on my parents suggested I become a dentist. After a career day in grade 8, I decided that is what I wanted.  Four years later I was accepted at Cal Poly University San Luis Obispo California. I graduated with a BS in Biochemistry in 1971. I moved to Washington DC And entered Georgetown University, graduating with a DDS in 1976.

My best friend (a Canadian) in dental school suggested I move to Canada. Following his advice, I immigrated in 1977. I chose Saskatoon because I wanted to teach, and became a part-time faculty member at U of S until 1984. In 1986 I was accepted to an advanced standing program to achieve a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from Toronto. I was licensed as a ND in 1989. The same year I became a Canadian citizen.

On a personal note I married my wife Lynne in 1982. With her 4 children and my 1 and then 3 more, we have 8 children and 18 grandchildren!

Dentistry is not only my profession, it is my passion … my focus is on Naturopathic principles applied to Dentistry. In the 40 years of practicing Dentistry in Saskatoon, the art, and more specifically, the science has changed. My goal is to guide these changes into harmonization with Naturopathic principles.
