Dr. Tom Karkanis
Dr. Tom Karkanis, General Dentist, has a passion for bringing dentistry to his patients, and is fuelled by his unique combination of dental experience (he’s a graduate of the University of Western Ontario’s Dental School), strong scientific background (he also has a PhD in Cellular Physiology), and facility with computer technology.

Outside of his practice, Tom is an avid fan of music, Tom received his Performer’s Diploma in piano from London’s Trinity College in 1991, and in his free time also enjoys competitive gaming, skiing and squash.
Dr. Jason Goldthorpe
Jason believes his patients’ comfort and happiness are paramount. He loves to put a smile on their faces whether that be by relieving pain, cosmetic treatments such as veneers, crowns or bonding, Invisalign or even implants.
Outside of the office, Jason enjoys getting out and spending time with his family in the great outdoors. He loves to surf, snowboard and play soccer.
Dr. Farid Habibian
Dr. Farid Habibian, Family Dentist, graduated from New York University College of Dentistry with Honors. After graduating, he started his general practice residency (GPR) at Lincoln Hospital in Bronx, NY, where he gained experience in advanced techniques and procedures in dentistry. After finishing his residency, Dr. Habibian moved to Vancouver to enjoy the west coast lifestyle.
He is a proud member of the Canadian Dental Association, American Dental Association, and BC Dental Association. Dr. Farid Habibian is very passionate about dentistry and enjoys providing patient-centered care to the local community. He attends focused study clubs regularly for continued education in dentistry. When not providing dental care, he is passionate about playing sports, especially volleyball. He loves cooking, trying different cuisines, and enjoys travelling.
Dr. Aaron Phan
Dr. Aaron Phan was born and raised in Calgary. He lived there his entire life before moving to Sydney Australia where he studied for 4 years and achieved his DMD. Through his time there, he has developed a special interest in oral surgery and general restorative work, but he aims to be a well-rounded general practitioner.
When dentistry isn’t on his mind, he’s probably thinking about what he’s going to eat for his next meal. He loves food! Dr. Phan enjoys cooking it as much as he does eating it, and he loves trying new dishes and cuisines. Dr. Phan also enjoys traveling, golfing, and is a huge hockey fan (He cheers for the Flames, sorry!). He’s a bit of a techie as well. Whether it be playing games to wind down or tinkering with his computer.
