Dr. Van Berkel spent his first 4 years upon graduation with the Canadian Armed Forces upon which he was posted to Edmonton. With friends and relatives in the area, it was easy to make Edmonton his home. Soon he met a beautiful lady, Jo, who he would marry and together raise 4 wonderful children.

Upon graduation and with a keen interest in orthodontics, Dr. Van Berkel advanced his knowledge in orthodontics by taking courses with Clinical Foundations of Orthopedics and Orthodontics. As Invisalign became another mode of orthodontics, Dr. Van Berkel became a certified provider of Invisalign.

For the last 15 years, Dr. Van Berkel has lead a team of dentists performing dental services to children in Ecuador. The mission was started by a member of the church Dr. Van Berkel attends - an orthopeadic surgeon that leads a team that does hip and knee replacements. Expanding the mission’s services to include dentistry, the team has the privilege in bringing down dental students, pre-dental students, dental hygiene students and each year mentoring up to 10 local Ecuadorian dental students when we are there.
Dr. Van Berkel and his wife Jo enjoy golfing, biking, life at the lake and in the winter, skiing and travelling.

As always, Dr. Mehta seeks to make her patients feel comfortable at the dental office, with sedation, distraction or a listening ear!
