“Our friendly, experienced team at Lifepath Dental & Wellness strives to leave you with an everlasting smile.” - Dr. Jed Snatic
Dr. Jed Snatic is the founder of Lifepath Dental & Wellness. It is his passion to keep patients happy, healthy, and enjoying their smiles.
Dr. Snatic had an early fascination with medicine and dentistry; he grew up spending much of his time at his grandfather’s medical office and his father’s dental office in Lake Charles, Louisiana. As a teenager, he and his family immigrated to Canada, later returning to the United States to obtain his Bachelor of Science degree. He studied dentistry at the University of Alberta in Edmonton and has been practicing dentistry since 1991.
Dr. Snatic is a father, lifelong learner, entrepreneur, and passionate professional. He prides himself on being able to treat most dental issues under one roof at Lifepath Dental & Wellness. He has extensive experience in implant dentistry and orthodontics, including interceptive appliances, standard braces, speed braces, and Invisalign.
If asked, he will tell you that he has the best staff and dental patients. He is valued for his no-nonsense approach and relatability. Dr. Snatic describes dentistry with words that patients understand, provides quality dentistry, and uses his humor to put his patients at ease. He attends regular continuing education courses to further his knowledge and improve his dental technique and believes in investing in technology, training, staffing, and addressing patient needs at Lifepath Dental & Wellness.
Dr. Snatic provides an opportunity for staff development and education and is continuously challenging his team to provide quality care in a world-class facility based on prompt, punctual, and same-day service. Through collaboration and the leadership of Dr. Snatic, the team at Lifepath Dental & Wellness aims to extend the lifespan of our patients with our dental, medical, and wellness services and healthcare education.
Dr. Snatic is happily married to his wife Kerry, who practices family and individual counseling at Lifepath Dental & Wellness. Together, they have two beautiful, wonderful, and dynamic daughters. The family is involved in multiple local charities, committees, and sporting activities. Their favorite pastime is traveling, and they enjoy downhill skiing, golfing, and water skiing on Chestermere Lake.
Dr. Snatic is continuously working on new business ventures in Chestermere and the surrounding area. He is thankful that Chestermere has embraced him and his family, involving them in community activities and making them part of this wonderful community. Dr. Snatic frequently travels to his other home in Louisiana and often wonders what life would have been like if his family had never moved to Alberta. Dr. Snatic’s response is “The truth is, Alberta has blessed my family and me with a comfortable and abundant life full of opportunities. I know in my heart and mind that we are in the best place in the world.”

Dr. Griffin Myers has been practicing general dentistry since 2009. As a child, Dr. Myers was always fascinated by dentistry and learned early on that the first step in achieving optimal personal health is maintaining a healthy mouth.
After completing his undergraduate at the University of Calgary, Dr. Myers moved his family to Las Vegas to attend the University of Nevada Las Vegas Dental School. Returning to his hometown of Calgary, Dr. Myers joined the Lifepath Dental & Wellness team in 2011 and is pleased to provide quality dental care to his patients.
Dr. Jean-Marc Arsenault was born in Montreal and moved to Calgary at ten years old. He attended high school in Calgary, where he enjoyed playing sports and excelled in track and field. After high school, he went on to Burman University, where he completed his Bachelor of Science. He then moved on to attend Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in California from 2011-2015. After grad school, he did his residency at Montefiore Medical College in Bronx, NY. Loving Calgary so much, he came home to start practicing dentistry and start a life.
In his spare time, he enjoys volunteering, watching films, exercising, and traveling. He is fluent in French and English and aspires to improve his Spanish. The most important aspect of dentistry to him is treating his patients as a whole and making them happy while providing them with the best possible treatment on a case by case basis.
Dr. Cocoa Huang was born in Taiwan and raised in New Zealand. He received his dental degree at the Gold Coast Griffith University in Australia in 2013 and moved to Whistler, British Columbia, shortly after.
Dr. Huang has been practicing general dentistry with Lifepath Dental & Wellness since February 2017, and he enjoys working in a collaborative environment with people who love helping patients as much as he does.
He is also an avid sports fan and played tennis and rugby up until he graduated from university. While living in Whistler, BC, he has ample opportunity to continue his love of outdoor sports. He loves to ski and is excited about living in a town near the beautiful Canadian Rockies with many kilometers of hiking trails and world-class ski hills.
Dr. Huang’s friendly demeanor and easy communication style make him the perfect fit with patients and staff alike at Lifepath Dental & Wellness.
Dr. Kayla Lavallee is one of our general dentists here in our dental team.
She graduated from the University of Alberta in 2018 with a Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. She’s the newest member of our team, but she’s been in the dental field for four years now.
Dr. Lavallee specializes in oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation. She strives to have all her patients feel comfortable in the dental chair. She works hard to build trusting relationships with every patient to help them overcome any anxiety associated with dental treatments.
Dr. Lavallee feels she’s helping patients best when they’re confident they’re receiving quality, patient-oriented care in a professional environment. She enjoys her work, as she loves the mix of artistry, medicine, and science that dentistry entails.
To Dr. Lavallee, every day and every patient is different. There’s always more to learn, room to grow, and new opportunities, all the while helping people with their health and beautiful smiles.
When not in the office, Dr. Lavallee spends time with her French bulldog Doug as well as family and friends. She played for the U of A Pandas hockey team and still loves to play recreational hockey. She also enjoys skiing in the winter, golfing in the summer, and traveling.
Dr. Tyler Rosolowski is one of our lovely doctors at Lifepath Dental & Wellness. He earned his master’s degree at Griffith University in 2020 and joined our team in March 2022.
Dr. Rosolowski’s foundation of treatment philosophy is an evidence-based practice, as he believes it should be for anyone with a duty of care to another person.
According to Dr. Rosolowski, dentistry is in a state of constant evolution. He believes it’s his responsibility as a dentist to ensure patients are cared for in a way that integrates and promotes the latest developments within the field.
Dr. Rosolowski is particularly interested in applying biomimetics within dentistry. He aims to use conservative techniques alongside cutting-edge materials science to restore a tooth in a way that simulates or mimics the properties of its natural structures, form, and function.
To Dr. Rosolowski, the ideal treatment can provide a patient with their desired outcome while remaining largely unnoticeable, unless they’re asking for a noticeable change.
Dr. Rosolowski says one of the best parts about working as a dentist is the immediacy of treatment. He adds that if a patient sits down in the chair with a toothache, more often than not, they will walk out of the practice free of pain.
Dr. Rosolowski thinks many people underestimate the impact of oral health on their overall health, not just from a physical standpoint but also mentally. One of his favourite parts about his job is getting to work with someone to build—or sometimes even completely restore—their self-confidence.
To Dr. Rosolowski, the impact of a healthy smile really cannot be overstated. It’s incredibly rewarding for him when the work he does, however small, becomes a part of someone’s journey towards a greater sense of physical and mental well-being.
Born and raised in Chestermere, Dr. Rosolowski has always enjoyed spending time out on the lake, no matter the season.
After living in Australia for the past 5 years, he’s grown to appreciate short summers but also the (at times, bitterly cold) winters, and he tries to get outside as much as he can.
Dr. Rosolowski grew up playing hockey and football, and with the mountains so close, he tries to get out to snowboard at least a couple of times a year.
Dr. Rosolowski is also admittedly a bit of a nerd and does enjoy learning as well as generally keeping his brain busy. Whether it’s technology, movies, music, sports, medicine, health, or just plain science, his interests have always been and, he imagines, will always be wide-ranging.

At Lifepath Dental & Wellness, our dental hygienists are licensed healthcare professionals who are credentialed and registered with the College of Registered Dental Hygienists of Alberta. Each dental hygienist was required to obtain years of formal training and education before being registered as a practitioner. Most jurisdictions require at least a two-year degree in dental hygiene as well as science-related courses as part of the program. A dental hygienist will have taken courses that provide background in oral anatomy, pharmacology, nutrition, and periodontology. Dental hygienists work closely with our dentists as part of the Lifepath Dental & Wellness team, performing tasks to help with preventive dental care. Our dental hygiene team follows a client-centered philosophy, promoting health and wellness with an unwavering commitment to excellence.
