Dr. Robert Laughland
Dr. Laughland studied biology at the University of Windsor, where he met and began his friendship with Dr. Pelka. When he finished his degree, he gained acceptance to George Brown College and graduated as a denturist in 1987. In 1987 he also married his lovely wife Kathy. They’ve been blessed with two sons, Nathan and Colin. Dr. Laughland wanted to continue his education in dentistry, so he went on to University of Detroit Mercy to study dentistry. He graduated in 1996 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and went on to complete a one-year residency at Sinai Hospital in Detroit.
After working in Michigan for a year and a half, Dr. Laughland returned to Canada and joined Dr. Pelka’s practice in 1998. He still works in Michigan once a week, where he concentrates on surgery.
Dr. Laughland has completed courses in advanced restorative dentistry with Dr. Gordon Christensen and millennium aesthetics with Dr. Tony Mancuso and Dr. Ed Phelps. He has also completed extensive implant training with Dr. Ken Hebel and Dr. Mark Lin.
