Dr.Pettigrew grew up in the Westboro, Ottawa area and always knew he would eventually return to call the area home again. After completing his Biology degree at Western, Dr. Pettigrew headed out to the University of Manitoba to complete his dental degree. Dr. Pettigrew spent 10 years practicing in Pembroke, ON to be close to the family cottage at Round Lake. After 10 great years in the valley, it was time to return to friends and family in Ottawa "I have been extremely fortunate to find a great little practice in the heart of Westboro to call my own. We have a great location, great staff and a great group of patients to work with." When not in the office you might find Dr. Pettigrew wherever the wind is blowing sideshore, enjoying the sport of kiteboarding of which he is passionate!
