This week our Business Spotlight focuses on Heritage Family Dental! Located at 5212 48 St C108, this cosmetic and restorative dentistry office offers services such as dental cleanings, cosmetic dentistry, crowns and bridges, implants, sedation, children’s dentistry, orthodontics, and wisdom teeth removal. We sat down with Dr. Levi Lowry and Dr. Tyson Allred to learn more about their business!
What is your business?
Lowry: We are a dental office; family dentistry.
When did you open?
Allred: Well it’s been around since 2007, about 13 years.
What would you say makes your business unique?
Lowry: We try to treat people the way we would treat our family. We want to make sure people are comfortable and that they are getting the care that they need in a way it’s as relaxing as much as it can be to them. I think that’s our main goal; to make sure people are happy and comfortable while they’re here because we know it’s not always the most comfortable experience.”
Allred: We’re not a corporation, this isn’t a faceless business. It’s Levi and I, and we’re very focused on our craft. We are not out to take over the world with Dental franchises! We’re just here to be good dentists. That’s what we like to do.
What are some products/services that you offer?
Lowry: We do a little bit of everything. We do orthodontics, we do cosmetics, regular family check-ups, and cleanings.
Allred: We’ve got a lot that we do between the two of us. I do a lot of surgery and sedation, and he [Levi] does a lot of orthodontics and we both do implants. We offer almost everything.
Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business?
Allred: Well we didn’t choose it, it kind of chose us! I stepped into this in 2012 as an associate and bought the practice in 2018 and sold half of it to him [Levi] in 2019. Downtown is a great location because we’re not excluding any part of town, it’s accessible to everyone. Regular parking, and it’s good exposure. It’s a good location.
What do you think makes Downtown vibrant?
Lowry: There’s a lot of synergy with the business around. People can come here and get basically anything that they need whether it’s a bite to eat or to get some shopping done. There’s a lot to offer!
I love Downtown Red Deer because…
Lowry: It’s just a good place, good exposure, good location central to Red Deer.
Allred: Well, the Ross Street area. It’s got the foot traffic and it’s opened up to a pedestrian style environment. There are some restaurants and patios and they’ve gone on to have live music in an area that used to be parking. They’ve changed the environment, which is nice!
Heritage Family Dental is the place to go for all of your dental needs, check out their website for more information!

Red Deer DBA announces Entertainment District events
With great enthusiasm and anticipation, the Downtown Business Association (DBA) is thrilled to share some exciting updates and plans for the future! After careful consideration and a deep understanding of our community’s needs, we are here to announce our latest developments.
Firstly, while we understand the disappointment caused by the cancellation of the upcoming season of the Downtown Saturday Market, we want to assure you that this decision was made with the utmost care and consideration. Our valued vendors and attendees have shown incredible support and enthusiasm for this new venture, and for that, we are truly grateful.
Though we faced time constraints and logistical challenges that hindered our ability to organize the event effectively, we have not lost sight of our mission to bring joy and entertainment to the community. Our plans for the Wednesday Market remain unchanged and we are are thrilled to inform you that the music programming meant for Saturday market entertainment will continue to thrive!
Every Saturday from 2-4pm, the public patio will come alive with soul-stirring performances from amazing artists from all over Central Alberta and beyond. Best of all, this event is free and open to the public, inviting everyone to share in the magic of live music. This will be in addition to the regularly scheduled Tuesday – Friday Programming, with an extra special open mic night every Thursday evening. Friday’s will take it up a notch with business-led events that will make your evenings truly unforgettable.
We have an incredible lineup of events and activities planned for this summer to enhance your enjoyment of the Ross Street Patio, day and night. To stay up-to-date with all the showtimes and artist line-ups, we encourage you to follow us on our social media channels.
In addition, our Host-It! Program offers community partners the opportunity to use the stage every Saturday throughout the summer. Imagine the possibilities—music, theatre, art galleries, and so much more. We are committed to providing a platform for diverse activities that will invigorate the heart of our downtown. And let’s not forget the festivals! The Downtown Business Association is proud to support several upcoming festivals on Ross Street and nearby this summer. These celebrations will infuse the area with a joyful and festive atmosphere, attracting thousands of visitors to revel in the excitement. After immersing yourself in these vibrant events, the Ross Street Patio will be the perfect spot to unwind and savor a refreshing beverage.
Our little Entertainment District has flourished, and we couldn’t be prouder. The first full summer season with this new bylaw in place promises to be an absolute triumph, as we are still the only Entertainment District in Alberta.
Looking ahead, the DBA remains dedicated to fostering a vibrant and thriving downtown. We are already hard at work planning an afternoon market for next year based on valuable community feedback. This revised schedule will provide vendors with greater flexibility and the opportunity to participate in other morning markets. We are committed to announcing and implementing these efforts earlier, ensuring that vendors have ample time to plan their seasons accordingly.
Together, as a united community, we will continue to create successful opportunities for all. Let’s embrace the vibrant future that awaits us and build a downtown that will inspire and uplift us all.
