Meet Dr. Alex Pavlenko
“Follow The Platinum Rule”
General Dentist in Edmonton – Dr. Alex Pavlenko
The ‘Platinum Rule’ says to “Treat others the way they like to be treated”. Dr. Pavlenko carries that philosophy into his Edmonton dental practice, Sana Dental.
Listening to his patients’ concerns and ensuring their questions are answered is important to Dr. Pavlenko. Before commencing any treatment, he ensures his patients understand the treatment and what is involved.
In a busy life schedule, he tries to find time to fish, ski, read books, travel and just simply spend time with his family.
Focus on the big pictureWhen it comes to dentistry, Dr. Pavlenko (Edmonton dentist) likes to look at the big picture. His focus is to help his patients:
- stay healthy through good oral hygiene and preventative care
- look their best through cosmetic dental treatments
- relieve their pain through TMJ care
- sleep better through sleep disorder (snoring and sleep apnea) treatment
Add quality to your life with prevention and treatment“I believe that dentistry is a key component of your family’s health care plan. By scheduling regular cleanings and check-ups, looking into issues such as jaw pain, headaches, or snoring, and investing in yourself with the cosmetic treatments you may desire, you could find improvements in your general health and well-being.“

I like to balance my time between managing the dental practice and spending time with our family. My hobbies are: cross country skiing, tennis, fishing, biking and traveling.”
Lisa – Clinical Adviser and Dental Assistant
“I have been happily assisting since graduating in 2001 from the NAIT Dental Assistants program.
What I enjoy is the versatility that my career provides me on a daily basis, from meeting new guests and helping them achieve the smiles that they are looking for; to helping long time guests maintain what they have achieved! I am here to answer any and all questions about your dental or insurance concerns and making your visit as comfortable as possible.
My family is my pride and joy. With our three children we spend as much time as we can traveling, going to the lake and spending it with our family and friends. When I do get a moment to myself it is usually spent gardening, playing slow-pitch, golfing or just enjoying a good book!”
