Keystone Dental Centre has provided family dentistry to its patients in Brandon and the surrounding area for more than three decades. Dr. David Chin and Dr. Margaret Choy started the practice in 1987 after graduating from dentistry at the University of Manitoba. They’ve worked hard to build a clinic that is welcoming to their patients and staff.
In 2008, Keystone Dental Centre moved from Brandon Shoppers Mall to its current location on the corner of Richmond Avenue and 9th Street. The move allowed Dr. Chin and Dr. Choy to expand and increase comfort and accessibility for their patients.
