Meet Our Team
Johannes “Jan” Lefeber, R.D.
Jan has been a licenced Denturist since 1982 and he has been serving the people of the Comox Valley and surrounding areas ever since. In his early years, Jan frequently travelled to northern parts of Vancouver Island to bring his services to isolated communities. Jan’s experience is invaluable and, even after over 35 years of making dentures, he still loves what he does. He is a BPS certified Denturist and, like all registered Denturists in BC, he keeps current with continuing education every year.
Fun fact: On the rare occasion that Jan takes a full day off, he’s been known to pack up and head out to go fishing at the crack of dawn. His favorite fishing spot is Wolf Lake. There are three things that Jan is always enthusiastic to talk about: fishing, golfing and dentures.
Chelsea Wood, R.D.
Chelsea has been a licensed Denturist since 2014. She achieved straight A’s all through the denturist program and, after graduation, she interned at the Comox Denture Clinic. After learning as much as she could from her mentor, Jan, she was able to pass the provincial licensing exams on her first attempt. Chelsea is thrilled to work in Comox (where she was born) and to help the people of the Comox Valley.
Fun fact: Chelsea has an honours degree in English Literature. She loves a good book and she’s never one to pass up on having a look through a bookstore.
Michael Wood, Intern Denturist
Michael is the latest addition to the Comox Denture Clinic team. He is a registered intern with the College of Denturists of BC. He graduated with honours from the Denturist program at CDI Surrey in February 2020. Mike is excited to begin his career as a Denturist and he’s thrilled to have his father-in-law, Jan, and his wife, Chelsea, as mentors. Michael was a member of the Canadian Armed Forces for ten years before making a career change to become a Denturist and he is eager to hone his skills in his new profession as he works and prepares for the licencing exams.
Fun fact: Michael has had a knack for puzzles and mechanics since he was a child. At age 10 he fixed the family’s broken lawn mower while his father was out buying a new one. If something’s broken, Mike can probably fix it.
Brenda has been working for Jan since 1990. She’s usually the first face you see when you arrive at the Comox Denture Clinic and it’s typically her voice you’ll hear if you phone us. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to dentures. If you have a question, she likely has the right answer.
Fun fact: Brenda is extremely crafty. She can cross stitch circles around most people and she makes amazing hand-made cards for all occasions.
