Dr. Tracy Dawes B.Sc., D.D.S.


Dr. Dawes graduated as a general dentist from the UofA in 1997. She was mentored by Dr. Huff in 2000 completely changed her life.

Dr. Dawes loves that dentistry is as much of an art as it is a science. She enjoys creating beautiful functional smiles that make people want to smile.

She is heavily involved in Invisalign for the last 7 years. Clear removable appliance therapy (Invisalign), for Dr. Dawes, is about restoring proper function for patients, the side effect happens to be a beautiful smile. She loves chatting and talking with her patients, the connection she gets with long standing relationships is what brings her to work every day, that and the opportunity to meet so many new people.

She has learned so much in the last 8 years since I joined a study club started by Dr David Galler and the American Academy of Clear Aligners.

She has been trained in a newer technique that builds teeth up with a bonding material. The result looks like crowns or veneers, but it is very conservative as no tooth structure is removed. She is a member of the Spear learning institute and an active member of the study club.

She has been trained in neuromodulators(cosmetic injectables, xeomin and dysport) since 2014 for both therapeutic TMJ treatment and all cosmetic treatment. She also offers dermal filler for cosmetic treatment of lips, cheeks, jowls.

Dr. Dawes is a pinnacle in the Red Deer community, she supports many sports programs, including minor hockey, ringette, volleyball and softball. Giving back through local charities such as the Festival of Trees Emerald Sponsor, Canada Winter Games major sponsor/ Waskasoo Mascot sponsor, Saving Grace Animal rescue, Central Alberta Child Advocacy and multiple school programs. She has also been involved with Plan international since 2002.

While she not at the office she enjoys spending time with her family, husband Brian and two kids Connor and Julia (both in university) and her dog, Rosie.

Dr. Dawes lives an active lifestyle, running, cycling, hiking, wakesurfing. Summer is her favourite season. She loves to read and listen to audiobooks. Recently she restarted her hobby of calligraphy, I haven’t done since her teenage years.

Dr. Brianne Lamey -BMSc, DDS


Dr. Lamey graduated from the University of Alberta in 2012

Dr. Lamey is known for her excellent work with clear removable appliance therapy (Invisalign) and creating beautiful functional smiles for her patients. She has been trained in a technique that builds teeth up with a bonding material that gives a similar result to Veneers or Crowns without removing any natural tooth structure at all. She is working on finishing up a course currently and will soon offer Healthy Start, which is a non invasive way to treat children who have sleep disorder breathing issues and straighten teeth without braces.

She enjoys building relationships with her patients and her coworkers. Dr. Lamey is known for having a lot of laughs throughout the day (and her laugh is contagious). She is a member of the ADA&C, AACA (academy of clear removable appliances)
She enjoys hanging out with her 2 dogs and cat. She loves travelling to new countries and experiencing different parts of the world but also has a love enjoying her own backyard in Alberta and spends a lot of time hiking on the weekends.

Dr. Maria Syed – BSc, DDS


Dr. Syed graduated from the University of Alberta, Class of 2017.

Dr. Syed practices all aspects of General dentistry, ranging from restorative to surgery to endodontics to pediatrics.
She loves educating and working with all her patients! Every patient is unique and she really loves that every day of her practice is different and she can provide unique, catered care for each one of her patients. Her goal is to make sure they feel comfortable in her chair and are educated on all their treatment options. Dr. Syed is known for making her patients feel comfortable and at ease.

She belongs to the Alberta Dental Association and Canadian Dental Association

Outside of work, she loves travelling, painting, staying active, and spending time with my family and friends.Dr. Syed is a wife and a mother to a gorgeous little boy.

She supports Kindness in Action – A dental organization that provides free dental care in multiple countries.

Dr. Ryley Tolman DDS


Dr. Tolman graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy.

Although Dt. Tolman as a general dentist loves all aspects of dentistry but he focuses much of his practice on extractions and root canal therapy treatments.

Dr. Tolman is known for engaging in excellent conversations with his patients so it comes as no surprise that the thing he loves most about coming to work is meeting new people and interacting with his patients.

He is a member of the ADA&C, Central Alberta Dental Society and Academy of General Dentistry and the Spear learning institute. Continuing education is very important to Dr. Tolman, he feels privileged to work in an office where so much mentorship is offered to him by his colleagues. He will be starting to offer clear removable appliance therapy (invisalign) in the near future.

Dr. Tolman has a soft spot for animals – particularly cats and gives back to organizations that help our furry friends.

Dr. Tolman lived in Ecuador for two years and is fluent in Spanish and gets really excited when he is able to converse with a patient in Spanish. He loves spending time outdoors with his wife and 4 children. One of his favourite hobbies is coming up with a plan to lose weight but falling off the wagon quickly because he is an excellent cook! If it’s the weekend you will most likely find him smoking an oversized cut of Alberta beef from the local butcher. He is a jack of all trades, from excellent woodworking skills to cooking to playing one of many instruments!

I have been going to Riverside Dental for over 10 years. I have seen a few different dentists over the years and have no complaints. I have... recommended numerous friends there and had no question bringing my kids here when they were old enough to start going. My kids LOVE going to the dentist. I have also done invisilign through them and had a great experience. Their dental assistants have always been kind and personable. Definitely more

I love Riverside so much. I switched when I was in middle school after a bad experience elsewhere. I continue to recommend people to switch to... Riverside Dental, or nudge them to go there if they’re looking for a new dental office. Big, bright, modern space, friendly staff, and they direct bill to my insurance (Desjardins), which is magical, because it feels like practically no one more

First time patient at Riverside DentalThis morning, Dr. Brianne worked on a broken molar, and crowned it. I was so happy she could prepare the molar... and make the crown in one was basically quick and painless!!This afternoon, I went back for a cleaning. The staff are great, and the clinic radiates a "feel good" atmosphere. (I actually look forward to going back......never thought I would ever say that about a dental clinic! 🙂 Thank you for making me feel so at ease.I would highly recommend this place!read more

I have only been a couple times, for exams, X-rays and a crown and all went well. They have up to date state of the art equipment for taking 3D... X-rays, and making your crown right there while you wait so no temp crown and only one appointment! All staff were very nice and helpful and Dr. Brianne showed me all the pictures, equipment and how the crown was made. Highly recommend!read more
