Dr. Al-Ashi believes that part of offering great care to his patients is achieving a pleasant patient experience, one that is not confined only to the dental chair, but extends from the first greeting to the last.
Brian Hoyano BSc DDS
Dr. Brian graduated from the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta in 1999. Rather than practicing in the big city after school, he decided to have an adventure! For two years, he travelled the north providing dental care in Yellowknife and the surrounding communities of the Northwest Territories. The experience made him appreciate all aspects of dentistry, and the importance of friends and community.
In 1999, Dr. Brian returned to Edmonton to join his father Dr. Ken Hoyano and partners at North Central Dental. Here he has found another welcoming community of professionals and patients, where he has provided care since.
Dr. Brian enjoys hockey, golf and family. As a dad of two daughters and a coach, he spends much of his time outside the office volunteering his time on and off the ice with Edmonton Ringette.
Dr. Brian aims to provide optimal dental care to maximize each patient’s oral health and overall well-being. He wants to help his patients to be educated and informed, so they can make decisions on what is best for them. Dr. Brian always strives to help our patients feel comfortable and have a pleasant dental experience.
