Darrell Cruz, DD
Hello my name is Darrell Cruz I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta which means I am loyal to the Oil, but growing up my favorite player was Stevie Y.
After graduating from the NAIT Dental Lab Technology program I started my working career with Shaun as a RDT. Working in a Denture Clinic I was fortunate to see both the lab and the clinic side, and after working a few years I realized I enjoyed the clinic side much more. I returned to NAIT and completed the Denturist Technology program. Today I work alongside Shaun as an an Associate and enjoying it more than ever. Throughout the year I attend study clubs and frequent lectures to keep current with new and different techniques, I am also a member in good standing with the College of Alberta Denturists Association. My philosophy is to treat everyone that walks in through those doors the same way I treated my grandmother.
Outside of work I enjoy playing and watching different types of sports especially hockey and snowboarding, walks in the river valley with my fiance and our 8 year old pup, and binge watching tv in the winter.
