Meet Your Dentists
Dr. Brent Hehn
Dr. Hehn graduated from UBC’s Faculty of Dentistry in 1996. Since then, his passion for learning has made him a continuing education enthusiast junkie. He loves to learn the newest and best available dental treatments available and to deliver his knowledge by providing optimum dental care to his patients. He is a Faculty member of Spear Education and continues to study all aspects of dentistry. Adventurous and active, he’s been on 7 dental missions to Central and South America and is always eager to help out those who don’t have access to basic dental care. When he isn’t working, learning or spending time with his two children, he can be found riding his mountain bike on the trails in North Vancouver, where he lives with his family.
