Meet Our Orthodontists

Dr. Ian McKee, Dr. Shawn Russett & Dr. Dolly Bharwani


Dr. Ian McKee

Filled with gratitude, I stand happy and proud to be practicing at Signature Orthodontics with my friend, Colleague, and Co-Founder Dr. Shawn. The saying 'time flies' is very true to form and it is hard to believe it has been almost 10 years since we embarked on this joint venture. Looking back, taking that leap of faith all those years ago and deciding to become an Orthodontist was worth every moment, because I am passionate about making a difference in our patients lives. I honestly feel there is no better career than creating beautiful smiles. Furthermore, working side by side with a committed and professional group of individuals (that we call our 'Signature family') and making a lifetime of memories is what it is all about!

I am also blessed to be supported by my wonderful wife Robin (a horticulturalist) who has stood beside me during this often challenging but always interesting journey. Our two active teenagers Chloe (a competitive synchronized swimmer) and Max (a hockey goalie) ensure we are continually kept busy and engaged.

When time allows, we enjoy time together and our varied interests include watersports, hiking, skiing, (downhill, cross-country and back-country) gardening, reading and travelling to new destinations.  Read more


Dr. Shawn Russett

I come from a small town in Saskatchewan, very near the Alberta border tucked into the heart of “Oil Country.” Dreams of being an oil tycoon seemed like a natural fit but I am grateful for choosing orthodontics as my career.  Building an orthodontic practice with Dr. McKee and working with our team of orthodontic assistants is what I love to do, and it doesn't seem like I'm going to work everyday. I am married to Lori, a dentist, and have two boys Oliver and Marshal. Our boys are avid hockey and soccer players, Lori is a triathalon enthusiast and I've got the Ironman bug. Read more

Dr. Dolly Bharwani

Hello from Signature Orthodontics! A little bit about me, I am a local girl, born and raised in Edmonton. After finishing grade 12 at Ross Sheppard High School (some of you probably go/went there too), I went to the University of Alberta where I obtained my degree in Dentistry, where I met Dr. McKee and Dr. Russett almost 20 years ago!  Next came 2 years of post-graduate residency in Rochester NY followed by 3 years at the University of Western Ontario in London where I completed my Masters degree in Orthodontics.
