Dustin Whitney D.C.
Doctor Dustin Whitney D.C. attended the University of Alberta, Edmonton studying kinesiology and human physiology. He is a first generation chiropractor earning a doctorate of Chiropractic, Magna Cum Laude, in 2006 from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
At graduation Dr. Whitney received acceptance into the Phi Tau Delta Chiropractic Honours Society. While in school, he completed post-graduate training as a Blair Upper Cervical Practitioner, achieving Level I instructor certification through the Blair Upper Cervical Society. As a student, Dr. Whitney began his post-doctoral training in functional neurology through the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies, Marietta, Georgia.
He has complete continuing education in clinical nutrition, exercise physiology, toxicity removal and lifestyle coaching. After establishing Alberta Preventative Health Services in 2012, Dr. Whitney has worked with hundreds of families, by helping them to reduce their risk factors for disease, en route to achieving their optimal health potential.
Since witnessing the decline of his mother’s health from life-threatening clinical depression and aiding in her eventual recovery, Dr. Whitney is committed to leading his patients toward reaching their true health potential. His goal is to rebuild a healthy community one family at a time. Dr. Whitney has focused his career on serving his city, inspiring responsibility, and re-establishing health as a top priority for Canadians. Some of his most valued contributions include his involvement with Project Homeless and the creation of the Free-Chiropractic clinic at The Mustard Seed in 2012.
Dr. Whitney places family first. He is married to Dr. Claire Whitney DDS, who is the co-owner of Downtown Dental and a team dentist for the Calgary Flames. They met in high school where they grew up in Sherwood Park, Alberta and were married in 2007. They moved to Calgary and now have three children, Anna, Olivia and Eli. The family enjoys skiing, hiking, ultimate frisbee, fitness and spending time together. Dr. Whitney's family receives regular chiropractic care as part of a wellness/ prevention lifestyle. He is experienced with taking care of mother's through pregnancy and post-natally, as well as infant, newborns and children.
Katherine began her chiropractic journey at the age of 15. A few of her family members had serious spinal and hip issues that, once they learned the benefits of regular and preventative care, they encouraged the rest of the family to begin spinal care as well. The rest is history!
Moving from Ontario to Calgary in 2020, Katherine joined the Pure Health Team that same year. Taking on a new city and work environment during the rise of the pandemic was an unexpected, but very rewarding turn of events as the team brought a lot of positive strength and encouragement during a very dark and confusing time in the world.
Always on the go, you’ll usually see her out for coffee with friends or with a camera in hand. Katherine loves the work she does with her church and enjoys taking time to try new things! From new spicy foods to indoor climbing and mountain hikes, she is always up for a challenge and ready to add some fun and laughter to the journey!
Being quite outgoing, it comes as no surprise that people are a big focus in her life. Nor that she has worked in a variety of customer service industries over the years! This particular personality trait doesn’t take long to recognize in her, as she is always ready to greet patients with a warm smile, because at Pure Health Chiropractic, you know that you matter.
Henry Ross R.M.T.
Henri Ross completed his degree with the Professional Institute of Massage Therapy fifteen years ago, and before that studied history at the U of C. His long experience with massage has exposed him to most injuries and conditions, and he enjoys the challenge that every new client brings to the table.
Outside of work, Henri is passionate about mental and physical health. A longstanding practitioner of yoga and gymnastic strength training, his pursuit of athleticism has led him to study with many experts, from hand balancers to movement coaches, acroyogis and meditators, and many other fascinating people. Pushing the limits of his physicality, he's not new to injury and has learned to love the teaching moments they present- how they inform his personal practice and in turn guide his treatment of others.
Henri strives to tune in deeply to his clients, tailoring each of his treatments creatively and effectively for the best outcome.
