General Dentistry

The foundation of good dentistry is a preventive approach. Regular check-ups and cleanings help ensure optimal health of the gums and underlying bone. They also facilitate identification of problems when they are small, before these problems have a chance to become more complex. Treatment of simple dental issues is always easier, less expensive and less destructive to the natural dentition. Good dental care begins with regular check-up and cleanings at your downtown dental clinic.

Surgical Dentistry

Our dental team can provide the advice, recommendations, and treatment you need. We are equipped to provide extractions, implants and gum surgery when needed here at your Downtown dental clinic.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Once the solid foundation of healthy gums and teeth is achieved, our Vancouver dental team can provide you with aesthetic enhancements such as Invisalign orthodontic corrections, whitening and veneers. From simple cosmetic cases to full-mouth restorations, our Vancouver dental team here at your Downtown dental clinic, can provide beautiful and durable solutions.
