Who We Are
Aarm Dental Group was founded in 1985 by Dr. Jim Armstrong. Jim is a graduate of the dental school at the University of British Columbia. Jim is a fanatic about fishing, skiing, mountain biking and, of course, his family. Jim’s vision for Aarm was a group of like minded professionals who are dedicated to private practice, but maintain an “academic orientation” through life long participation in graduate training programs. Many Aarm dental partners also teach at dental schools or international/national dental organizations.
