About Dr. David Bergen
Dr. David Bergen has practiced dentistry in the Niagara area since 1976. He started and was sole proprietor of a large and busy dental office in Virgil. Several years ago he decided to adjust the pace of his professional career to an unhurried environment where the focus is on one patient at a time. Lakeside Dental is the realization of that vision. Dr. Bergen was born and raised in Kitchener, Ontario and graduated from the dental program at the University of Western Ontario. He has served as president of the Niagara Peninsula Dental Association, and is a past governor of the Ontario Dental Association. He is also a longstanding Rotarian (Rotary Club of Niagara-on-the-Lake). A firm believer in continuing education, Dr. Bergen takes upgrading courses annually and is program chair for the Region of Niagara Academy of General Dentistry. He also hosts an annual Georgian Bay Dental Symposium which examines the latest trends and technologies in dental care with a small group of dentists from across Ontario. Dr. Bergen is an avid woodworker and gardener. He’s also an inveterate “weather watcher” which explains why he keeps taking so many photos of Lake Ontario in its various moods.
