We’ll use this information to provide you with suggestions for the best procedures for you.

Community-Driven North Vancouver Dentistry Team

Most of our team members were proudly born and raised in the North Vancouver community and demonstrate this through their regular involvement in the community. Our general dentist, Dr. Cheung, has lived in the area for years and has happily made it a home for his family. Having such a community-focused team gives our patients a more at-home and familiar feeling when they visit our practice.

Dr. Tila Bahri

Dr. Tila Bahri

General Dentist

Dr. Tila Bahri was born and raised in Iran. She graduated with distinction from the Hacettepe School of Dentistry program in Ankara, Turkey. After completing this program, she spent two years in Iran treating patients who were often medically compromised, with mental health disorders, and in desperate need of dental services.

Dr. Bahri attended the University of British Columbia for two years, obtaining her Canadian dental license in 2011. In past years, she has worked in several locations, including the Haida Gwaii Island community, Vancouver Eastside, and Vancouver Island. She completed a General Practice Residency in Saskatoon, focusing mostly on the treatment of children with dental trauma. Her primary focus in dental care is on prevention and creating healthy oral habits and routines for her patients.

Dr. Bahri enjoyed working with children so much that she decided to pursue pediatric dentistry further, completing her MSc and Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry at UBC/BC Children’s Hospital. She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada. During her practice at Chestermere, Alberta, she explored the introduction of clinical hypnosis in pediatric dentistry. Dr. Tila is an active member of the Canadian and American Academy of pediatric dentists.

She strives to fully support her team members resulting in the best possible patient outcomes. She speaks three languages (English, Farsi, and Turkish) and is keenly sensitive to cultural and demographical differences. Dr. Bahri continuously takes professional development courses such as clinical hypnosis to offer her patients the most effective and up to date treatments.

During her leisure hours, she enjoys travelling, spending time with family and friends, designing floral arrangements and recently has become active in local dance communities.

Dr. Bahri is happy to meet the dental community in North Vancouver and is delighted to organize either in-person or virtual meetings.

Experience the Rich History of North Vancouver

Our gorgeous, modern clinic was built with the intention to serve as a top dental practice with high-quality equipment. We’re located right on 13th Street, near the library, city hall, and Lions Gate Hospital. The community is very welcoming and offers many retail, residential, and commercial areas nearby, so you can travel, live, and shop in a safe and convenient area.

North Vancouver was first incorporated in 1891 when it was a waterfront municipality. It sits on the north shore of Burrard Inlet, right across from Vancouver, and is the smallest of the three different north shore municipalities. North Vancouver is now urbanized and home to many booming industries like chemical production, film production, and shipping.
