Dr. Brett Davey, B.Sc., D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

Family is one of my greatest joys in life. My wife Sarah has been my rock and a true partner in not only our Chiropractic journey but through the challenges of raising a family. She is an amazing woman who never ceases to amaze me with her wise council, sensitive nature and genuine, caring demeanour. Then there are my three amazing kids Malachi, Isaac and Hannah. They add so much love and meaning to my life. I can barely remember what life was like before their laughs, conversation and endless activity. It is with pride that I watch their wonderfully unique personalities develop and grow.

I am also very blessed at work. Not everyone can go to work everyday excited about what the day holds. Working with a wonderful staff and great patients makes my job truly gratifying. Our office is a unique place where everyone is like a big family. We know our patients by name and I would consider many of them dear friends.


Making a difference in the lives of others is a truly amazing experience. Being able to actually change peoples lives for the better and, in some cases, give them back their lives, is the most incredible feeling. I never guessed when I set out on this career path that it could be so rewarding. Chiropractic is a remarkable profession that I truly love.

Dr. Brett Davey was born and raised in Northern Ontario, the oldest of seven children. He graduated from Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry. Dr. Davey attained his Doctor of Chiropractic with honours from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in 2002. After working in Alberta for two years he and his young family settled in Ridgetown in 2004. When he is away from the office he and his family enjoy downhill skiing, camping and time on the water with their boat.
