Meet the Doctor

Dr. James Scramstad, General Dentist

Dr. James Scramstad’s father, Dr. Don Scramstad, started Straight Smiles here in Kelowna back in 1981 and spent 30 years straightening smiles in the Okanagan before he retired. James wanted to continue the family tradition. So, after graduating from OKM Secondary, he went on to become a General Practitioner dentist offering orthodontics only.

After working together with his dad for over 17 years, James continues to offer comprehensive orthodontic care for patients of all ages with a focus on advanced technology and exceptional customer service. His treatment philosophy centers on creating healthy smiles with harmonious facial relationships for the perfect balance of function and aesthetics.

James is a family man through and through. He values the time he spends at home with his wife, Natasha, and their kids, Koa and Maléa. When they’re not at home, James and his family can usually be found exploring the Okanagan. They’re avid mountain bikers and also enjoy skiing, hiking, surfing, boating and more. You will often see a bicycle in the office since James rides to work as often as he can.
