Our Mission

We will strive to make your experience at our office exceptional from the moment you call to book your appointment to the moment you leave the office after your treatment. We provide a full range of dental services including preventive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. We also do root canal therapy, implant restorations, surgical removal of wisdom teeth as well as children’s dentistry. We strongly believe in prevention and encourage our patients to have check- ups and hygiene visits regularly.

It’s not the dentistry that’s expensive—it’s the neglect.

What we stand for

Our Philosophy

OUR PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY is based on a team approach and we liase on a regular basis with several fine specialists in the city in all of the dental disciplines to inform you of all options available.

There are often several ways in which dental problems can be treated. You will be given a range of solutions ranging from no treatment if appropriate and practical to various treatments ranging in price and complexity. We will work with you to educate you on the advantages and disadvantages of all the options and find a solution that fits your needs. We strongly encourage our patients to ask questions and participate in the decision making process.

We are firmly committed to ongoing education in the newest techniques and technologies that dentistry has to offer to make dentistry a more comfortable and fulfilling experience.

Dear valued patients:

We all hope that this letter finds you and your families safe and in good health. We are pleased to inform you that all staff members are fully vaccinated and have received their booster shots and the vast majority of our patients are fully vaccinated too. Dr Pessinis has taken the vaccination course offered by Vancouver Coastal Health and has offered to be a vaccinator. You may well see him in the community in this capacity. 

Our community, our country and the world at large has been through a lot over the last 2 years. As the months have gone by, we are all anxiously looking forward to resuming many of our normal habits and routines. We are pleased to have reconnected with the vast majority of you and are pleased that all the measures we have in place are working so well and that you all feel safe in our office. 

While a lot has changed, one thing that has not changed is our commitment to your health and safety. Our office follows the infection control recommendations of the Canadian Dental Association, The College of Dental Surgeons of BC, the BC Centre for Disease Control as well as WorkSafe BC. We are committed to ensuring that our infection control procedures remain current and effective. 

Since the office has re-opened after the hard lockdown in March, April and May 2020 during this Covid 19 pandemic, we have continued to serve our patients by performing all of the services you have received in the past. 

  • You will be asked screening questions both before your appointment and when you arrive in the office.
  • You will be asked to wash your hands with soap and water or use the hand sanitizer we will have available as soon as you enter the office.
  • The receptionists will be wearing surgical uniforms and masks and will take your temperature on arrival.
  • You will notice that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys or the hot beverage service because these are high touch items and are difficult to clean.
  • Scheduling options will likely be less flexible for your appointments to allow for physical distancing between patients.
  • Our office has always had high levels of infection control and with extreme caution, appropriate use of Personal Protective Equipment and training in implementing all of these measures we have always been successful in preventing disease transmission.
  • We have also taken significant new steps to increase everyone’s safety such as Plexiglass screens at the front desk, airflow control in the treatment rooms, physical distancing in the waiting area and additional Personal Protective Equipment.

Until we see you again, enjoy your time with your families, the flexible work schedule, the time to do those projects around the house and the walks in our gorgeous city. Thank you for your patience, understanding and loyalty during this strange time. Please strongly consider getting vaccinated when the opportunity arises if you have not done so already.There is finally light at the end of the tunnel and with a bit more perseverance, we will get through this once in a lifetime crisis.
