Dr. Legault began his career in dentistry as a member of the UBC graduating Dentistry class of 1996 with an undergraduate degree in Microbiology and Immunology. Born and raised in Prince George, Lonny returned to his hometown to begin working, where he has owned his own practice since 2000.

Dr. Legault is extremely focused on continuing education for everyone involved in the practice and looks for the most innovative and practical ways to care for his patients. This is reflected in the Accent Dental Office, which employs the newest technology in the industry.

Dr. Legault's expertise lies in the surgical field, with advanced skills ranging anywhere from extractions and biopsies to full mouth rehabilitation and implants and is one of the very few dentists in northern BC to complete extensive training at the Misch International Implant Institute in the US. As a result he received his Fellowship with the Misch International Implant Institute and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

In his free time, Lonny's focus is on his family, spending time with his son, either helping coach his football team or spending time outdoors. Enjoying anything outdoors, Lonny especially loves hunting and snowmobiling.

Dr. Legault received the Award of Merit from the College of Dental Surgeons in 2012, and is also a member of British Columbia Dental Association and Canadian Dental Association.
