What makes us Special?

A dental specialist completes an additional 2 – 3 years of post graduate training in a specific field of dentistry.  Dental specialists most often work in conjunction with both you and your general dentist.  However, a referral from a general dentist is not necessary to see us – you have the option to contact us directly for consultation and treatment.

Working along side our Specialists, our caring team of Assistants provide the best care and support for our patients. They are dedicated to ongoing education and training to stay informed of the latest treatment techniques and dental health advancements.

All our Assistants are certified and registered with the College of Surgeons of British Columbia and maintain the highest ethics and standards in dentistry.
