I am thankful every day that I can help people smile and feel their best through pain-free dentistry. I have been able to build many trustful relationships with my patients over the past 28 years. I give my patients honest and reliable solutions to their dental problems. I am honoured that they refer friends and family to our office, and many of them travel great distances to see us.
Education and Experience
I received my Bachelor of Science and Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Alberta in 1990. In addition, I was the sole recipient of the Arthur D. Cumming Medal for being top of my class in children’s dentistry. Upon graduation, I joined a dental practice in Princeton, BC, where I worked as an associate for two years. From 1992 to 2008, I was a partner of PoCo Dental Group in Port Coquitlam. I started my own clinic, Keryluk Laser Dental, in 2008 to provide the best possible dentistry available.
Technology is fascinating and every advance makes my job easier and more comfortable for my patients. I have completed several study clubs, from orthodontics to implants. I incorporate this additional expertise into my practice, which expands the scope of treatments available to all my patients.
I continually upgrade my education and practice skills by attending numerous continuing education courses and seminars across North America. I am an active member of the British Columbia and Canadian Dental Associations, and have served on a committee for the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia. I volunteer my dental expertise to help the British Columbia Coroners Service and RCMP to identify unknown remains and bring closure to many homeless or missing persons.
My highly trained team keeps updated with dental techniques, and many of them have been with me for more than 25 years. They are a part of my family! We incorporate ongoing technological changes with Invisalign®, Nobel Guide (computer-guided implant placement), digital impressions with the iTero® Element, and laser fillings and gum treatments. The Waterlase iPlus 2.0 enhances the strength of white fillings, and many cases do not require anesthetic.
Outside the Office
I come from a large family of nine, and I enjoy spending as much time as I can with them. When I have the chance, I also enjoy snowshoeing, running, hiking, strength training, and travelling. I am an avid recycler, and I drive an electric car to lower my impact on the environment.
I am a passionate supporter of the SPCA, where both my cats are from. I fundraise with my great team for the SPCA and we have raised more than $120,000 over the last five years. I also support several local charities, including Covenant House.
