Business Spotlight: Heritage Family Dental
This week our Business Spotlight focuses on Heritage Family Dental! Located at 5212 48 St C108, this cosmetic and restorative dentistry office offers services such as dental cleanings, cosmetic dentistry, crowns and bridges, implants, sedation, children’s dentistry, orthodontics, and wisdom teeth removal. We sat down with Dr. Levi Lowry and Dr. Tyson Allred to learn more about their business!
What is your business?
Lowry: We are a dental office; family dentistry.
When did you open?
Allred: Well it’s been around since 2007, about 13 years.
What would you say makes your business unique?
Lowry: We try to treat people the way we would treat our family. We want to make sure people are comfortable and that they are getting the care that they need in a way it’s as relaxing as much as it can be to them. I think that’s our main goal; to make sure people are happy and comfortable while they’re here because we know it’s not always the most comfortable experience.”
Allred: We’re not a corporation, this isn’t a faceless business. It’s Levi and I, and we’re very focused on our craft. We are not out to take over the world with Dental franchises! We’re just here to be good dentists. That’s what we like to do.
What are some products/services that you offer?
Lowry: We do a little bit of everything. We do orthodontics, we do cosmetics, regular family check-ups, and cleanings.
Allred: We’ve got a lot that we do between the two of us. I do a lot of surgery and sedation, and he [Levi] does a lot of orthodontics and we both do implants. We offer almost everything.
Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business?
Allred: Well we didn’t choose it, it kind of chose us! I stepped into this in 2012 as an associate and bought the practice in 2018 and sold half of it to him [Levi] in 2019. Downtown is a great location because we’re not excluding any part of town, it’s accessible to everyone. Regular parking, and it’s good exposure. It’s a good location.
What do you think makes Downtown vibrant?
Lowry: There’s a lot of synergy with the business around. People can come here and get basically anything that they need whether it’s a bite to eat or to get some shopping done. There’s a lot to offer!
I love Downtown Red Deer because…
Lowry: It’s just a good place, good exposure, good location central to Red Deer.
Allred: Well, the Ross Street area. It’s got the foot traffic and it’s opened up to a pedestrian style environment. There are some restaurants and patios and they’ve gone on to have live music in an area that used to be parking. They’ve changed the environment, which is nice!
