Meet the Dentists

Dr. Ashlyn Schwab

Ashlyn was born in Saskatoon and raised in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. She graduated from John Paul II Collegiate in 2013, and moved to Saskatoon shortly after to pursue an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology. After completing her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, Ashlyn attended the USask College of Dentistry, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Dentistry and Doctor of Dental Medicine in 2022.

Outside of the office, Ashlyn loves spending time with her family and friends and staying active, especially in nature. Some of her preferred outdoor activities include camping, hiking, golfing, playing volleyball and slopitch, and cross-country skiing. Her favorite outdoor adventure so far has been tackling the West Coast Trail, where she got to spend seven days and six nights backcountry hiking and camping along the shoreline of Vancouver Island.

Ashlyn enjoys practicing all aspects of general dentistry and is grateful to be in an evolving profession that offers endless opportunities to learn, use technology, and improve her skill set. She looks forward to providing compassionate, genuine, and patient-centered care to the Melfort and Tisdale communities.

Dr. Emily Ikert

Emily was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She graduated from Centennial Collegiate in June 2017, and began her University journey the following September. She pursued a degree in Physiology and Pharmacology, before receiving her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the College of Dentistry at the University of Saskatchewan in June 2024.

Emily enjoys all aspects of health and well-being, both physical and mental. When she is not in the office you may find her at the gym, partaking in (or teaching!) a yoga class, and enjoying time outside by going for a walk, run or hike. Emily is an avid reader, and prioritizing spending time with her loved ones are two ways she focuses on her mental health. She also enjoys travelling: taking a back-packing trip through Europe is one of her greatest memories to date.

Emily focuses on patient-centred care, and strives to create a warm and friendly environment in the dental office. Educating patients’ on their own oral health and working together with patients as a team is of the utmost importance to Emily. She has a passion for all aspects of dentistry and is excited to continue doing what she loves every day by providing care in the communities of Tisdale and Melfort.

Dr. Dustin Roth

Dustin was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He graduated from E.D. Feehan High School in 2007, further receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology and Pharmacology in 2012 at the University of Saskatchewan. He then attended the College of Dentistry at the University of Saskatchewan in 2012. After completing his degree in 2016, he moved to Tisdale with his now wife, Lauren, and two girls, Daisy and Stella.

Dustin is an avid traveller. From eating Pho in the streets of Vietnam, flying over the blue hole in Belize, and learning Spanish while eating ceviche in Guatemala, travelling has been integral in his life.

Having moved to Tisdale in 2016, Dustin has found new interests in curling, men’s nights, bowling, and enjoys the sociability of a small-town community.

Dustin enjoys all aspects of general dentistry but has a certain degree of attachment towards wisdom teeth and implant dentistry. The ability to incorporate technology such as the Cone-Beam Computed Tomography, digital scanner, and 3-D printer into one open-sourced software program has expanded the possibilities in implant dentistry. This allows him to provide comprehensive treatment options such as single implants, implant bridges, immediate implants, and denture-supported implants. He is excited to provide treatment at Northeast Dental in Melfort as well as continuing care in Tisdale.
