After growing up in Vancouver and finishing his B.Sc. Degree in biochemistry, Dr. Alex went on to complete his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of British Columbia in 2002. In 2003, he began teaching at the U.B.C. Faculty of Dentistry as a clinical instructor. By teaching at the dental school and taking continuing education courses, Dr. Alex continues to make sure he is providing the most modern and up to date treatments for his patients.

In 2010, Dr. Alex was honoured to be selected to be part of the dental team that provided dental care to the world class athletes of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Currently, Dr. Alex is a registered member of the Canadian Dental Association, the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia, the B.C. Dental Association and was sponsored to become a member of the Canadian Academy of Restorative and Prosthodontic Dentistry. Dr. Alex enjoys keeping active through sports and can be found at Kitsilano Beach playing volleyball in the summer or at a Canuck’s hockey game rooting for the home team in the winter.

Alex is a great dentist, he is a good guy and teaches at UBC. The office is not the nicest dentist’s office you’ll ever go to but the location is very convenient and there is free parking around the back. Makes going for a regular teeth cleaning session (every 3 months?) easy. You can’t do that downtown or those super busy medical buildings on Broadway where it takes you half an hour to park, pay, wait for the elevator, etc, etc. The current receptionist is very nice too!

What it is like being a Dentist in Kitsilano?

Kitsilano is a great place to work and live as a dentist. The small stores all along West 4th avenue are all great places to shop and the restaurants always have friendly staff. When the office is busy and I need to grab a quick lunch, Whole Foods and Safeway are close with a wide selection of choices. For extended lunches Burgoo Bistro and Connie’s Cookhouse are some of my favorite places to sit down for a bite to eat when I can. On a sunny day, Kits Beach is a great place to enjoy a break from work and the best beach in Vancouver. Kitsilano Barbers is my place of choice when it comes to getting a haircut as the staff there are wonderful. Kerrisdale Dry Cleaners(in Kitsilano) always do a great job with great service for your dry-cleaning and alteration needs.

Kitsilano is a great community of merchants and residents. The demographic of the people living in the area is also quite diverse: from the student who go to UBC, the young urban professionals living in single small apartments, families living in some of the nicest homes in the city, and seniors who continue to keep the heritage of the area – they all choose to live in Kits because is it one of the best neighborhoods in the city. I consider myself fortunate to be part of this community not just as a business owner but as a resident also.
