Port Coquitlam’s The Grove Dentistry, under the expert guidance of Dr. Shamil Hajee and Dr. Victor Chan, is reshaping how we approach dental care, focusing on lifetime oral health. 

With a clear emphasis on preventive care, the clinic is dedicated to crafting personalized care plans that not only address immediate dental concerns but also lay the groundwork for enduring oral health, spanning from childhood to senior years.

Early dental care for children

Central to the philosophy at The Grove Dentistry is the belief that a positive introduction to dental care in early childhood sets the foundation for a lifetime of healthy oral practices. Drs. Chan and Hajee, drawing from their personal experiences as new parents, understand the nuances of pediatric dentistry. 

"Introducing children to the dental environment through playful interaction is key,” Chan explains. “We aim to build a rapport that transforms dental visits into a fun and educational experience, thereby nurturing a proactive attitude towards oral health from a young age.”

Specialized care for seniors

Recognizing the unique dental care requirements of senior patients, The Grove Dentistry adopts a personalized approach to address the multifaceted challenges they face, meticulously considering factors such as medication side effects, physical limitations and pre-existing health conditions to tailor a care plan that ensures optimal oral health for seniors. 

"Each senior patient is assessed individually, allowing us to provide targeted care that supports not just their oral health but their overall quality of life," Hajee explains, underscoring the clinic's dedication to nuanced patient care.
