Accessible Dental Care
Although we are guided by Board-Certified Prosthodontists, not every patient needs to be seen by a specialist. That’s just part of how we help make expert dentistry more accessible to more Vancouver residents.
We know you have questions about The Dentist, and how it differs from our regular practice at the same location. Browse our FAQ section, and please reach out at any time.
The dentist was conceived because we understand that not every patient needs to see a Board-Certified Prosthodontist for their day to day dental care. Prosthodontists have extensive training in the replacement of teeth and management of the most complex dental conditions. Many patients can be very well cared for by an experienced general dentist.
The Dentist offers:
– Later/more convenient appointment times
– General Practitioner fee schedule
– Direct Insurance billing
– Experienced general dentists with the guidance of our certified Specialists
Of course! A referral to see the Prosthodontist is always easy to arrange. The advantage is that your records will already be fully accessible on-site. Your General Dentist at The Dentist will also have access to the full range of technology that Pacific Spirit Dental Centre has to offer.
For many patients, we think so! As far as we are concerned, a simple cavity should be expertly repaired by any of our dentists, Specialist or General Practitioner. It is when multiple complicated conditions such as bite misalignment, missing teeth, and complex esthetics involving the front teeth are present that Specialist care becomes advisable. At The Dentist, we are committed to providing you the most appropriate care that you need and will advise you if Specialist care is indicated.
