From Dr Terry Walker:
I am writing this letter to let you know as of Dec 31, 2022 I am retiring from practicing dentistry.
For several years I have been asked by well-wishing patients “when are you going to retire” and my response has always been “not yet” followed by a sincere “thank you for allowing me to be your dentist”. This honor is now ending. I will be 65 in December and it is time to move on. I have been fortunate to be a part of a wonderful office and incredible staff. I assure you that all of those familiar faces will remain to carry on the warm and friendly traditions we are known for at College Park Dental Clinic.
I am excited to announce a new dentist to College Park Dental Clinic team, to whom I am entrusting the care of my patients. My hope is that Dr. Ryan Gallagher will enjoy a career as long and rewarding as mine has been.
Ryan Gallagher was born and raised in Saskatoon, growing up in College Park area. He obtained a Bachelor of Science in mathematical physics at the University of Saskatchewan. In 2013, he graduated from the College of Dentistry at the University of Saskatchewan, receiving the Gold Medal for achieving the highest standing in his graduating class. After graduating, Ryan pursued a General Practice Residency (GPR) at Dalhousie University in Halifax. Through his GPR program, he received training in intravenous sedation and complicated extractions. He has also pursued extensive continuing education in implant placement and restoration. In 2018, he moved back home to Saskatoon. Ryan particularly enjoys board game nights with his family and spending time with his three young sons. At work, he takes pride in putting patients at ease and providing the highest quality of dental care. He is excited to get to know the patients of College Park Dental and to join the practice with Dr. Andrew Doig to continue the legacy of high-quality dental care.
It is my sincere hope that you will continue to access the services provided at College Park Dental Clinic and that you will take the opportunity to get to know Dr. Ryan Gallagher. I thank you for trusting in me and my staff over the last 30 years.
Dr. Terry Walker
