Charles Gulley, DD, F.C.A.D.

Charles is our owner/operator Denturist in our Calgary denture clinic. The last of seven children, he was raised in a healthcare environment with his father being an Orthopedic Surgeon and mother a nurse.

He studied health sciences at Camosun College in Victoria, BC, before transferring to the NAIT Denturist Technology Program in Edmonton, Alberta, where he was an award winning student. After graduation in 1984 and completion of the two-year internship, Charles established a practice in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta in early 1987, which he ran for thirteen years prior to relocating with his family to Calgary. While in Calgary he provided denturist services both in a Calgary Dental Clinic and as an Associate Denturist in a High River Denture Clinic.

Charles subsequently moved his family to Edmonton to take the position as the regulatory body’s CEO, Registrar and Complaints Director. After his tenure in that position, Charles once again relocated his family back to Calgary. 

Charles has been in the profession for over 35 years and has been active in the profession’s association and regulatory body for almost the entire time in the profession; from being an Executive Member and the President of the former Alberta Denturist Society, to being a lecturer at multiple conferences for the profession, to his position with the College of Alberta Denturists. Charles was bestowed as a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Denturism on September 30, 1989. He is an advocate of continual learning, and Charles brings to his patients full viable and current treatment options for their consideration in his Calgary denture clinic. He is a member of ITI; the International Team for Implantology. 

When not at work, Charles will either be spending time with his wife and one son, cycling, finding something to take a picture of, reading or finding a new recipe to cook!

Charles is a Regulated Member in Good Standing with the College of Alberta Denturists, as well as a member of the Denturist Association of Alberta
