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.
This was my first visit to a Canadian dentist and the staff was delightful.The exam was thorough and Katie explained to me about concerns of my teeth and procedures to take care of them moving on. The hygienist was very attentive to my comfort during the cleaning. Very pleasant experience!
The staff and facilities here are fantastic! The dental team who took care of me were consistently good communicators and told me exactly what was happening as the visit progressed, and then they made my options for follow-up care crystal clear. I'm very happy to be a new patient at this office.
Dr. Farshad and his team are all very friendly and welcoming. All of the staff are gentle on teeth, gums and procedures. They have all the latest technology such as 3D mouth scan and all the rest to give a detailed conclusion for tips and recommendations. I have been getting regular checks at another dentist previously where they've been good though nowhere as professional as this place. The hygienist is very caring and knows her stuff. I highly recommend this place.
If you're a new customer you also get a starting kit with an Oral B electric tooth brush, tooth paste, floss and lip balm. Pretty good I say.
Would be great to see a water cooler in there next time though.
This may be the first review I've ever left, but they deserve it. I moved here 2 years ago and I had a difficult time finding a dental practice that really listened to me and put my needs first instead of pushing whitening, cosmetic and unnecessary work. They are so friendly and the front desk is so wonderful, I can't recommend them enough.
Have been going to this dental office for probably 17-18 years, previously with Dr. Hacker, and have been seeing Dr. Fareidouni since 2017 when Dr. Hacker retired. I've seen Dr. Chung once for a quick fix, and she seemed excellent as well. Great team all around, Jordan and Ruby at reception included! I have a lot of issues with gum sensitivity and jaw tightness during restorative work, and Dr. Fareidouni and Toni are incredibly accommodating and gentle, to make it as comfortable an experience as possible. Also love to see Maureen for the cleanings. Highly recommended!
