Your Friendly Neighbour in West Broadway
West Broadway Dentist is conveniently situated in the vibrant Kitsilano neighbourhood, which is a popular hub for some of the best dining and shopping in Vancouver. You can stop at Bed Bath & Beyond, grab a lunch at Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot, and pick up a few essentials at Shoppers Drug Mart, all within a few steps of our doors. This is a hub for local health care services as well, with several physicians’ and specialists’ offices along the same street, and Vancouver General Hospital less than five minutes away.
Our central location makes it easy for patients to drop in before work, at the end of the day, or on a lunch hour. We offer flexible scheduling with this in mind. If you don’t have time to complete a lengthy treatment in one visit, we can break it up into several shorter sessions for you. Just let our helpful front desk staff know what you need. We’re happy to work with you.
West Broadway Dentist has been a staple in the Vancouver area for many years. The office was originally run by Dr. Chris Hacker, who continued to practice with us until April 2017. Though Dr. Hacker has since moved on to serve as Director of Professional Practice and Deputy Registrar for the College of Dental Surgeons of BC, we here at West Broadway Dentist are proud to uphold many of the same values that Dr. Hacker embodied for his loyal patient base. Dr. Hacker built a dental practice focused on relationships, which we continue to maintain.
In 2013, Dr. Kevin Aminzadeh purchased the practice from Dr. Hacker. West Broadway Dentist changed hands again in August 2015, as Dr. Farshad Fereidouni took over as owner and operator. At our practice, you’ll find that Dr. Fereidouni and his staff are deeply and personally invested in your comfort and happiness as well as your health. We continue to provide the same level of care and concern that has made this a successful location over the years.

We truly appreciate all of the kind words we’ve received from patients over the years, however we are unfortunately no longer permitted to display testimonials we’ve received on our website, due to regulatory changes from the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia. Instead, we are now displaying reviews left by patients at third-party review sites.
I’ve been going to West Broadway for over a decade and everyone is just lovely! Maureen is an awesome dental hygienist and we always manage to have a good laugh. Getting you teeth cleaned and examined isn’t always the most fun thing to do but the staff and dentists here are thorough, professional and wonderful people. They make going to the dentist a nice way to start the day. Can’t recommend them enough!
Great staff and doctors! Very welcoming.
I did not find it very expensive. It is not very cheap as well.
One thing to know, they have a surgeon comes a few time in a month. If you want to get something advance done you need to book him earlier.
Great establishment, staff are very friendly, warm, and kind. They are also very knowledgeable. Highly recommend to anyone. Will definitely come back!
Went in for my regular cleaning and agin was completely delighted by the services given. Sparkling teeth and a great checkup by the dentist. Couldn’t be happier with this group of people!
I have a lot of anxiety about the dentist office. I wasn't raised with a lot of awareness of how to take proper care of my teeth and I hadn't been to see a dentist in a long time because of my past experiences with other practices (ie: the hygienists were rough and shamed me for not going more often, being treated like a cash machine and not realizing that cost was a factor especially when I didn't have access to dental coverage before). But, I finally decided that I needed to see a dentist because of a recent, really bad toothache.
Wow, this place is wonderful. The entire team is welcoming, non-judgmental, approached tests on a consent basis, and they made sure I felt comfortable with what was happening every step of the way. They were so accommodating and allowed my partner to be in the room with me for support. Dr. Katie Chung is very kind and she checked in with me every so often to make sure I was feeling okay during the appointment. She was very mindful of what would be best for me for my upcoming procedure, given my anxiety. Dr. Chung and her team were matter-of-fact about what was happening with my teeth and what needed to be done but they approached the topics from a place of caring and sensitivity to my anxiety. So yeah it's all a bit scary, and even though I haven't had an actual cleaning session or procedure with this office yet (today's appointment was to assess what needed to be done) I feel comfortable knowing I'll be in good hands and that I will be treated well every step of the way.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a safe and comfortable space.
