Beginning my career as a general dentist, I achieved a solid foundation in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. After practicing as a general dentist for 4 years, I decided to pursue my childhood dream, and completed the Orthodontics program at UBC. For me, the best thing about being an orthodontist is that patients not only achieve a beautiful smile, but they also obtain a healthy, functional bite. Orthodontics is an intellectual puzzle that combines the biomechanics of positioning the teeth and the jaws in the right place, with the art of creating a unique smile in each unique patient; it really is the perfect fit for me.
West Shore Orthodontics was named after the community in which it belongs in, the West Shore. The West Shore of Victoria is a vibrant, energetic and warm community, and it is my mission to reflect those same qualities at West Shore Orthodontics. The patients at our clinic are, and always will be my top priority, and therefore I designed West Shore Orthodontics with patient comfort and convenience as essential elements.
I approach orthodontics in the same manner that I pursue everything else in life—with passion and a commitment to excellence, all while remembering that it’s important to have some fun along the way. When I’m not at the office, I’ll be spending time with my family and friends, ideally exploring the great outdoors of Vancouver Island.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about West Shore Orthodontics. I look forward to getting to know you!
