Dr. Kevin Vong
Dr. Kevin Vong received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Manitoba with honours in 2011. He was awarded for excellence in Pediatric dentistry.
He originally chose dentistry because he saw it as the perfect blend of science and art. However, after practicing for nearly a decade, the ability to change his patients’ perceptions about dentistry and their own self-confidence through the care he provides truly anchors him to this profession. He believes that everyday should be enjoyed, no matter where you are or what you are doing. As one of the owners of Aspire Dental Centre Charleswood, he strives to maintain an atmosphere of warmth and a team that is dedicated to helping patients enjoy every dental visit.
Dr. Vong married his favorite human being, Dr. Nirvani Umadat, in 2013. Every year they extend their dental expertise beyond the residents of Manitoba. They are part of a volunteer organization called Kindness in Action and have provided dental care to remote, rural communities of Guatemala, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Ecuador and the Amazon Basin of Peru.

Dr. Malcolm Jackson
Dr. Malcolm Jackson received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Manitoba in 1975 with honours.
Practicing for more than 40 years, he has devoted a better part of his life to helping the community with their smiles and oral health. He is passionate about dentistry, always increasing his knowledge and providing modern services, like implant and digital dentistry.
From running around after his grand kids, entertaining at the cabin, strumming on his guitar and cheering on the Jets, his days off are spent full of activity. Though he has a rich, active personal life, Dr. Jackson finds himself most at peace when he’s at the office doing what he does best, treating his patients.
Dr. Elysia Lam
Dr. Elysia Lam received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Manitoba in 2016. She was awarded for excellence in Operative Dentistry and was on the Dean's Honour Roll during her studies.
She began her dental career in Morden, Manitoba. She enjoys all aspects of dentistry, however caring for children has been especially rewarding for her.
After meeting her husband, Aaron, they decided Winnipeg would be their home. Together, they enjoy ultimate frisbee, snowboarding, hiking and travelling. She is also committed to giving back to her community. She has spent seven years volunteering at the Health Sciences Centre and a year volunteering at the Winnipeg Humane Society.
Dr. Nirvani Umadat
Dr. Nirvani Umadat received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Manitoba Faculty of Dentistry with honours in 2011. After graduation, she completed a one-year residency at the University of British Columbia/Vancouver General Hospital.
Though Dr. Nirvani has a wide scope of practice, the aspect of dentistry that appeals to her most is her connection to her patients. She deeply appreciates the trust her patients place in her abilities. Her time with her patients is a time for her to connect to them, understand their needs, listen to their goals, and ultimately deliver the individualized care each person needs. She hopes to enable others to realize their innate ability to change their perceptions of themselves, their health, and their dental experience.
She believes that we are all here to be great. Whatever we choose to do, however we choose to do it, our greatness is in how we make others feel. This profound belief is something she has carried forward in to her personal and professional life.
Luckily for Dr. Vong, he is her favourite human being as well. Over the past eight years, the two of them have created amazing experiences travelling to some of the most remote places on Earth to deliver dental care to those with limited access.
