Dr. Nathan Muirhead - Dentist

Dr. Nathan Muirhead moved his family to Victoria from Lethbridge, Alberta in 2011, where he had already practiced dentistry for five years. Early in life, Nathan decided to be a dentist, and began shadowing dentists in his community back in 1992. Beyond his shared enthusiasm for general dentistry, Dr. Muirhead brings a range of unique services to the clinic. He provides a comprehensive range of Orthodontic treatments starting from early childhood to fully grown adults—without surgery or headgear. He also offers Snoring and Sleep Apnea treatments using low profile sleep appliances that improve the lives of many a patient and their families. Treating chronic pain patients suffering from headaches and TMJ/TMD is his passion. He has performed nearly every type of cosmetic and implant rehabilitation conceived by the profession. Nearly 20 years ago, Dr. Muirhead was married to his sweetheart and they are the proud parents of five children (four boys and one girl with very curly hair). When Dr. Muirhead isn’t curled up with various books, he likes to stand-up paddleboard, motorcycle, go hiking, walk the family dog and volunteer in youth organizations. He recently returned from a service mission trip to orphanages in Cusco, Peru with his oldest son, and hopes to return soon with other sons. He enjoys scuba diving and is a technology enthusiast, with a borderline obsession for a board game called Catan.

Dr. Muirhead has rigorously and passionately pursued continuing education in the following areas of IV Sedation, Orthodontics, TMJ/TMD, Snoring and Sleep Apnea, Prosthodontics and Implants. He will only take courses that require significant investments of time and study from dentists or physicians with expert qualifications in their fields of study. Most importantly, Dr. Muirhead has put the training into day-to-day use with his dental team to benefit patients.
