Welcome to Dentistry on Sherbrooke, Peterborough’s most established Dental Office

Our legacy

We can trace our roots back to 1953, when local farm lad Robert Nelson graduated from the University of Toronto and first hung his shingle on Charlotte St. in Peterborough. Instantly busy, he developed a sterling reputation for compassionate, high quality dental care in a career that spanned 42 years. Upon his retirement in 1995, the torch was passed to Dr. Jurgen Vander Velden, who today continues this tradition of excellence in preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Although the practice has grown tremendously, we still treat many of these original multi-generational families, some of whose dental records go back more than 65 years!

Our mission

To provide excellence in all facets of dental care, with compassion and comfort.

“In fact, researchers have settled on what they believe is the magic number for true expertise: ten thousand hours.”

-Malcolm Gladwell, Outliers: The Story of Success

Our promise

At Dentistry on Sherbrooke we will honour your trust in us by providing you and your family with a full range of dental services in a safe, professional and caring environment.

“Dedicated to your smile”
