He swiftly headed south of the border to pursue dream of dentistry, graduating from the University of Detroit Mercy. Although he loves all aspects of dentistry, Dr. Tolman enjoys providing crowns, bridges, Invisalign treatments, and root canal therapy treatments.

Ever the adventurous type, Dr. Tolman lived in Ecuador for two years and is fluent in Spanish. He gets particularly excited when presented with the opportunity to converse with a patient in Spanish.

Growing up on the family farm just outside of Cardston, AB, Dr. Walburger knew he wanted to work with his hands, so he started his first dental career as a denturist. The surgical aspect of replacing missing teeth with implant-supported dentures was fascinating to him, so he went back to school to become a dentist, pursuing his Bachelor of Science from Lethbridge University and then earning his doctorate from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry.
As a Lethbridge dentist, Dr. Walburger looks at the mouth as a whole—as a reflection of your oral and overall health and with an eye to how he can address your concerns and desires. Getting to know you and your individual needs is Dr. Walburger’s priority so he can not only create the healthy smile you want but also tailor your dental experience to meet your individual needs.
