Welcome To Arbutus North Dental

home_img_1Thank you for choosing Arbutus North Dental Centre – we’re so glad to meet you! Here’s some information that will help you for your first appointment. Initial appointments with new adult patients at our Kitsilano dental clinic take about 1.5 hours, during which time we can get to know you, understand your goals and needs, review your insurance information, and explain the various treatment options available to you. Initial appointments for children can be shorter–about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on age.

At Arbutus North Dental Clinic, we’re dedicated to helping our valued patients understand the importance of good oral health–because it’s “not just their teeth” that are at stake.

Indeed, our patients are sometimes amazed to learn of the critical link between their oral health and their overall health. And of course, there’s another severe condition linked to poor oral health that may not show up on a medical scanning device, but can be damaging and devastating at any age: lack of self-esteem.

If you suffer from poor oral health or simply feel that you aren’t enjoying the bright, beautiful smile that you want, at Arbutus North Dental Centre we have some welcome news for you and your family: we can help! Simply contact us to discuss your concerns in a confidential, supportive, and caring environment. We’ll help you understand your options, explain the procedures to you in a clear and non-technical way, and help you choose the path that is best for you, your family, and your vibrant and successful future!

At Arbutus North Dental Centre, we provide you and your family with a full range of restorative, general and cosmetic dental services. To learn more about a dental service, please inquire with our office.

We are happy to provide general, cosmetic, restorative, and pediatric dental care to you and your family at our Kitsilano Dental Clinic. Please contact us today if you’d like to schedule an appointment.

Filling out confusing dental insurance paperwork can be a burden, and our goal is to provide you with a comfortable, pleasant experience. We’ll help you understand your insurance coverage, but your benefits package is between you and your employer and may change at any time, so please stay current with your plan and provide us with up to date information so we can make your life easy. We will also help you complete your insurance forms, and can file the forms directly to your insurance company on your behalf. We can even accept payment directly from your insurance company–which makes your life even easier! Contact us to learn more.

Payment Options
For your convenience, we accept cash, debit cards, VISA, and MasterCard.

Laser Dentistry

Heat, vibration, and pressure are the primary causes of pain associated with the use of the traditional dental drill. Since our Laser technology does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed nearly pain-free with fewer shots, less bleed for anesthesia, less use of the drill and fewer numb faces. Laser technology can be used during both hard and soft tissue treatments (teeth and gums).

  • Accuracy and precision
  • Anesthesia may not be necessary
  • The laser will sterilize the gums, making infection less likely
  • Less damage to gums shortens the healing time
  • Less bleeding & swelling
  • Fewer dental visits
  • Great for kids or nervous patients
