Dr. Terry McKay
I am honored to be in a position of trust with the public and feel it is my duty to always protect and nurture that relationship with my patients. My goal is to meet each person’s specific dental needs and exceed their expectations at every turn. Dentistry is a unique specialty within medicine that allows me to use my creativity to produce a beautiful product, while providing regular care for patients to promote overall health and well-being through dental healthcare.
I’ve been proud to practice general and cosmetic dentistry for over 35 years in Vancouver, West Vancouver, and Seattle, Washington. My long term dental practice in North Vancouver is located in the heart of Lonsdale and I also provide service for patients and families on the Sunshine Coast through Advantage Dental.
I am committed to growing and learning for life! It keeps me young, vital, and gives me a joy for life that I love to share with others. Following my formal dental education at the University of British Columbia, I joined numerous professional organizations to stay up-to-date on the most current dental technology. My patients can be confident in the care they receive because of my passion for continuing education. I use only the most proven dental techniques and materials available so I can do the very best for each patient, every time, and in every situation.
I place high importance on advancing my education in dentistry. I attend annual meetings and conventions around the country in oral surgery, endodontics, cosmetic dentistry, CEREC®, Invisalign®, and orthodontics, as well as subscribe to numerous professional publications focused on unbiased research. Additionally, as one of the original founding members of the Tucker Academy study club in Vancouver, I have been inspired by Dr. Tucker and his teaching methods and really enjoy inspiring my colleagues to strive for excellence in dentistry. I have encouraged those around me to continue their education since 1990. An operating study club is the most challenging type of continuing education because each dentist’s operation is critiqued by mentors and fellow peers. We discuss how they can improve their techniques and are accountable for their progress. I am also a part-time instructor and lecturer for the third and fourth year dental students at UBC.
