About Us

Professional, personal, and experts in our field. We are here to help you achieve your oral health goals and look forward to welcoming you to our practice.


Our mission is to provide exceptional dental care that is rooted in compassion, expertise, and a commitment to our patients’ well-being. As a team of general dentists and certified specialists, we understand the ever-evolving landscape of dentistry and the complexity that comes with it.

Developing the perfect treatment plan is a delicate balancing act between a patient’s needs, goals, and available resources. That’s where we come in. Our approach is to blend cutting-edge knowledge and techniques with decades of proven experience to deliver predictable and effective care every time.

Our Values

Affirming our past and guiding our future.

Relationship Building

What else can we say? Our entire profession is built on the loyalty and trust of all the patients, colleagues, and co-workers that have been a part of our practice’s 40-year-long story. Without effective relationships, there is no dentistry.


Whether it’s your oral health, the day-to-day operations of our practice, or the next big thing in dentistry, we always endeavor to keep our eyes on the big picture. Problems don’t arise in isolation, and neither do solutions. We strive to account for everything when developing a holistic approach to your smile.  

Excellence In Care

Excellent dental care is built on a foundation of trust, respect, and communication between the dentist and the patient. It involves a commitment to ongoing education and professional development to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in the field of dentistry.

Continual Growth

The practice of dentistry is evolving faster than ever. For over 40 years, our practice has evolved to stay abreast of new knowledge, techniques, and technologies. We aim to never stop growing and learning to deliver better experiences for our colleagues, team members, our current patients, and all those whom we care for in the future.

Meet the Team

Our team is grounded in a deep sense of compassion and care for our patients. We look forward to working with you to achieve optimal oral health and a brighter, healthier smile. Thank you for entrusting us with your dental care.

Get to Know Us

Our Story

The story of our practice really is the collective story of the generations of patients who have placed their trust in us and our predecessors. Our group has always stood upon the shoulders of giants. Approximately 40 years ago, the first patients were welcomed into the practices of Dr. Donald Shuen on Fraser Street, Dr. Joyce Ling in Chinatown, and Dr. Ernie Schmidt on West 10th Avenue. Many of those individuals and their families are still authoring chapters in our story today at our current locations on West Broadway and at University Village.

Over the years, we have been blessed with so many additions to our professional family in terms of team members, colleagues, new technologies, and most importantly, patients. Most recently, we are excited to welcome our first in-house specialists to our group. Both Board-Certified Prosthodontists, Dr. Collin Shuen and Dr. Lucie Yin are the latest to continue the legacy of excellence that Pacific Spirit Dental Centre has become known for.


Conveniently located in Vancouver’s residential core, our clinics are located at UBC and on the Arbutus corridor.
