Tri-Cities denturist brightens community one smile at a time

As someone who is in the business of making people smile, Rav Lyall says he could not see himself in any other profession. Helping patients feel confident and comfortable with their smiles, Rav and the rest of the staff at Burke Mountain Denture Clinic know that there is more to dentures than just oral health.

“I’m really passionate about what I do, I really care about people’s mouths and their oral health and restoring smiles,” the denturist said.

Originally hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Rav came to the west coast in 2001 and never looked back. He says it is the beautiful nature that surrounds him and the hometown feel that is native to the Tri-Cities that has kept him here. Yet, Rav says it is the people who make up the community that is truly special. “When I first came here to do my practicum, one of the first things I noticed about Port Coquitlam was the community’s sense of welcoming,” he said.

Rav, who has been the primary denturist at Burke Mountain Denture Clinic since 2007, understands that every patient is different. That is why every set of dentures is crafted by hand. “Every mouth is different and every smile is different,” he said. “We make sure we achieve that in our work where we create natural looking dentures and make people confident about their smiles again.” Likewise, a denture can help to fill in gaps that can start to show up in you teeth and restore your confidence and sense of well being. If you are concerned about the fit of a denture or you desire another option beyond a conventional denture, a great treatment of choice will be dentures over implants.

Helping people with their confidence and their ability to smile was something Rav was always interested in doing. When he learned the extent of just how much craftsmanship goes into being a denturist, he fell in love with his profession. Working with people, educating his patients about denture and dental care, and giving people options are three main tenets that make up his work philosophy.

The clinic provides complimentary consultations and free denture cleaning and polish to all new patients. To learn more about denture options, visit Burke Mountain Denture Clinic’s website, call 604-944-4910, or email bmdclinic@telus.net. You can also find them on Facebook.
