Dr. Jurgen Vander Velden was born in Holland and raised from an early age in Waterloo, Ontario.
He received his B.Sc. from the University of Waterloo in 1987 and his D.D.S. from the University of Western Ontario in 1991. Following four years with The Canadian Armed Forces as a Dental Officer, Dr. Vander Velden moved to Peterborough and fulfilled a lifelong dream by opening his own practice in 1995. He is the dentist Peterborough trusts.
The practice blossomed and in 2006 was relocated to its present location. A firm believer in continuing education, he is committed to staying current with leading-edge dental techniques, materials and equipment.
Dr. Vander Velden holds numerous association memberships and is a past president of the Peterborough Dental Society. An avid golfer, he resides in Peterborough with his wife Verona, also a dentist, and their two children, Jenna and Matthew.
“We designed this website to help you to get to know us better. We look forward to working with you and your family to develop a positive and lasting relationship. I invite you to take a tour of our clinic.”

Dr. Megan Fulford
Born and raised in Peterborough, Dr. Megan Fulford joined the practice in 2016. Following an academic journey that began at Chemong P.S. and progressed through St Peter High School, Western University, Trent University and the University of Toronto, she fulfilled a childhood dream and graduated as a dentist in 2015.
Our connection to Megan runs deep – as a young teenager, she babysat Dr. Vander Velden’s small children, and she credits Dr. Vander Velden and his wife Dr. Verona Sulja for sparking her interest in dentistry! Dr. Fulford received numerous awards during her studies, and has a special affinity for paediatric patients. She enjoys all aspects of dentistry, and is committed to lifelong learning through ongoing continuing education courses. Away from the office, Megan enjoys time with family and friends, outdoor activities, and working on her golf game. Dr. Fulford has professional affiliations with the ODA, CDA, PDDS and RCDS.
Megan is thrilled to return to “the Patch” after her time away, and to be part of the team at Dentistry on Sherbrooke.
