About Our Dentistry
After graduating from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1969, Dr. Garry Ziegenhagel opened the doors to his first dental office in Brentwood, Calgary. He had run the practice for 8 years when he decided that in order to better serve his numerous Cochrane dental patients he would open a satellite office in Cochrane in 1977. After 9 years of dividing his time between Cochrane and Calgary, he enjoyed the patients and Cochrane so much that he chose to work here full-time beginning in 1986.
Over the years, Cochrane has continued to change and grow but has not lost the character and feeling of a small town. Dr. Ziegenhagel & Associates has also continued to grow and change and in 2008 Dr. Tristan Ziegenhagel joined our growing practice upon graduating from Loma Linda University. A few years later in 2015, Dr. Katherine Le, who helps to provide Children’s dental services (Pediatric Dentistry) to Cochrane, joined the practice upon graduating from the University of Alberta.
Dr. Garry Ziegenhagel, although he will continue to fondly remember his patients, chose to retire in 2012. We are happy to report he is thoroughly enjoying his retirement. Dr. Tristan Ziegenhagel took the reigns of the practice and is proud to keep the clinic in the family.
