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 a patient for a year and a half and always had great experiences every visit. The front desk staff are so helpful and friendly and my dentist and hygienists are very professional and knowledgeable. They are mindful of my benefit plan and ensure I am being scheduled in a way that worked best with my coverage. I always feel like I am well taken care of here.
This is my second review but a year later and I still stand by my first review as this dental practice is of the highest standard. I have found the people at the front desk to be very courteous and helpful. Maureen, my hygienist, has been cleaning my teeth for a number of years and she is very thorough and hasn't caused me any discomfort. Dr. Farshad Fereidouni, my dentist, is also very courteous, gentle and seems to do excellent work. I would highly recommend this dental practice.
Been coming here since Dr. Hacker first opened. My whole family are patients. Would not go anywhere else. Safe, efficient, caring and knowledgeable. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
West Broadway Dentist is wonderful! I have been going there for over 20 years plus, despite there was a change of dentists, Dr. F. is a wonderful dentist, great bedside manner, and he explains every procedures very well. He demonstrates a great care to his patients and his staff, collectively as a team is just wonderful and friendly. That is one dentist place I’d love to revisit! 🙂
I have only had very positive experiences at West Broadway Dentist. The staff is very professional and caring. Recently, I have had extensive dental work done and it has been completed with great expertise. I would recommend highly West Broadway Dentist.
