Over 40 years ago Dr. Dejager and Dr. Rulka established our Dental office very close to the current location. Over the years, they grew the practice on the pillars of trust and friendship. Dr. Hehn purchased Dr. Dejager’s office in 2004 and worked alongside of him until 2008, when Dr. Dejager retired. In 2019, Dr. Rulka retired and Dr. Izadnegahdar joined the practice to continue the care of the patients. We are honoured to be serving the wonderful community of patients in our practice, some of whom have been there for all these years as well as the patients that have joined us in the more recent years.
We strive to provide the highest level of personalized oral care available. We provide comprehensive treatment-planning and use preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal oral health. Our approach of combining the functional as well as the aesthetic aspects of leading-edge dentistry is aimed to provide you a healthy, predictable and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Education & Prevention
We strive to provide “oral health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams and taking x-rays and photographs when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we are also concerned about your health. A review and update of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications and any illnesses that may impact your oral health as well as oral conditions that can impact your overall health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the Canadian Dental Association (CDA), Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as well as BC centre of Disease Control (BCCDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians.
