Meet the Dentists
Dr. Jenelle Hyland
I was born and raised a Saskatchewan farm girl. It is this upbringing I credit for making me the woman I am today: work hard, treat people well, and appreciate the little things.
I attended the University of Saskatchewan, where I received my degree in Dentistry in 1996. I moved to Medicine Hat, started my career at Courtyard Dental, and have been here ever since.
My husband Colin and I have two children: Grace and Carter. We have a dancer and a soccer/lacrosse player. Much of our time is spent volunteering for their various extra-curricular organizations.
While not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, baking, travelling, a little bit of exercise, and the odd glass of red wine with friends.
I look forward to many more years with our outstanding team at Courtyard.
Dr. Armes Perrett
Growing up in the small ranching community of Mountain View, AB, near Waterton Lakes Provincial Park has resulted in my love for anything outdoors. I have many passions but first and foremost is my family. Alongside my wife Becky, I have four children; Rueger, Briggs, Devyn, and Blake. While my oldest boys were young, I left behind my years of work in the oilfield to pursue a career in dentistry. I attended the University of Saskatchewan, graduating in the spring of 2009, and have been a part of Courtyard Dental Centre ever since.
Dr. Mike Lemeshuk
Born and raised in Medicine Hat, I have developed a strong connection to our community through family and friends. I attended Medicine Hat College for Undergraduate Studies before obtaining a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Alberta in 2010, after which I began my practice at Courtyard Dental Centre.
I am actively involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Medicine Hat, and continue finding fulfillment with the relationships I have established through this organization. My interests include guitar, snowboarding, golf, and outdoor activities in our wonderful climate. I live with my wife Ashley and our Golden Retriever. We welcomed our first child Adam in 2017, and look forward to raising a family in this fantastic city.
Dr. Ashley Spitz
I am originally from Edmonton where I attended the University of Alberta, graduating with a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 2010. I met my husband while attending University and he is what brought me to Medicine Hat. I moved here in 2011 and have found it to be such a friendly and welcoming community, not to mention the much better weather! I am an active member of the Kinette Club of Medicine Hat and am enjoying learning more about the community by volunteering through this organization. In my free time I love to cook and bake, walk the many beautiful park trails in and around Medicine Hat, ski, read, and spend time with my husband, our son Adam, and our dog Ally.
Dr. Emily King
I have lived in Medicine Hat for most of my life where I attended both McCoy High School and Medicine Hat College.
I completed my B. Sc in Kinesiology and D.D.S. at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, where I coauthored research in woman's health and became involved in providing dentistry at the Boyle McCauley Centre for youth in need.
In my final year of dental school I was honoured to receive the Dr. Thomas J Marrie Award, which recognizes the student who best exemplifies compassion, respect and empathy for their patients.
While not at work, you can find me planning my next big hiking trip with my husband or practicing my photography skills.
I am thrilled to be joining Courtyard Dental Centre and working with extraordinary, service-oriented team.
