Meet The Doctors

Dr. Darrell Morden

Dr. Morden is a graduate of the University of Alberta (DDS., 2002), Simon Fraser University (MSc., 2001) and Trinity Western University (BSc., 1995) .   His background in research, and in particular protein engineering, took him all the way to the National Institutes of Health.  Continuing clinical education remains a key priority as does the development of novel technical approaches and applications for the everyday clinic setting.    

At one time, he worked as a dentist in fly-in clinics on reserve in northern Alberta.  In 2004 he helped form the West Calgary Dental Group out of an amicable merger of the long-standing practices of Drs. Mitenko and Innes.  

Dr. Morden is married with four children. He enjoys swimming, the mountains and flying light aircraft. For 25 years he has been an active pilot and continues to develop his interest with advanced licensing and ratings.  The clinic’s aeronautical theme blends the importance of precision, teamwork, and the esthetic and importance of natural dental design.  

Dr. Dawna Wetherell

Dr. Dawna Wetherell has been an associate dentist with West Calgary Dental Group since 2008, where she works closely with Dr. Morden.  She is committed to providing excellent services to her patients in a gentle and compassionate manner.  

Before studying dentistry, Dr. Wetherell studied Environmental Sciences at the University of Calgary.  She is also a graduate of University of Alberta Dentistry and completed research in pathology, with particular interest in oral herpatic lesions.  

Outside the office, Dr. Wetherell and her husband keep busy with their three children and she enjoys a variety of activities including rollerblading, running and dance.
