The fact that it’s not difficult to find a good dentist in West Vancouver is definitely a plus, but finding one that’s always willing to go the extra distance to make sure your teeth stay in tip-top shape is a little less commonplace. Genuine caring is something that comes from the very core of a healthcare professional, and it’s a fundamental part of our approach. We are able to treat every patient as an individual – with great results!
We’ve been at our current West Vancouver location for nearly 25 years now, and have become a fixture in the community. Our long-time patients include parents who originally came to us with their parents, and now bring their own children to the clinic. It’s nice to develop this type of long-term relationship with folks from the community, and we certainly enjoy bringing new individuals, couples, and families into the mix as new clients too.
Taking good care of your teeth involves more than simply brushing them twice a day and avoiding sugary drinks. One of the things we take to heart is the need to empower patients with the knowledge of the importance of a good dental hygiene routine. We want our patients to understand that it’s something they need to practice regularly while they’re away from the clinic, to have sound, healthy teeth as they age – and the nice smiles that come along with them!
