Two Convenient Locations – Choose Which One Works Best for You!

We are proud to offer comprehensive care in two locations within Kamloops. Both our Valleyview and our Downtown offices have been designed with pride to create a clean, contemporary and comforting space for you and your family. Our Valleyview location is right off the highway with lots of free parking. Our Downtown location is easy to get to by foot, bike, bus or car and we have some underground parking reserved just for our patients.

Developing a Relationship

Like any other decision you make about your health, it is important that you share your expectations and goals and feel well informed about your options. Your one-on-one consultation will involve an evaluation and discussion. We may take x-rays and other images for a more comprehensive view of your teeth, gums and jawbone to assess the current condition of your smile and propose a treatment plan that best addresses your needs and desires. We use an app called Best Practices that ensures that you are well informed about your oral health condition and your treatment options.
