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. As the sole dentist at the clinic, continuity of patient care is something that he is passionate about when it comes to treatment. Continuity of care is facilitated by a single physician-led, team-based approach to dental care. It reduces fragmentation of care and thus improves patient safety and quality of care.
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. He is also the emergency contact dentist for UBC Varsity Athletes and Canada’s Indoor Women’s Volleyball team.
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.
