Dr. Lyle Pidzarko

For someone who enjoys helping people and who loves to work with his hands, dentistry is an ideal profession. “I really enjoy making a difference in people’s lives,” says Dr. Pidzarko. “It is so rewarding to help the patient to get to their goal of comfort and confidence in their smile when we restore or enhance their teeth. It’s great when our patients leave here feeling good about their health and appearance.”

“Implant dentistry allows me to offer better solutions to patients who have missing teeth and who wish to have something that looks and functions more naturally and comfortably. Individual teeth, implant supported bridges or implant supported dentures can dramatically improve how people feel about themselves and we can return them to normal function. I love to sit down with people and discuss what they would like to change and then I can create a custom solution that best suits the individual”

Dr Pidzarko attained his BSc from University of Alberta as well as Doctor of Dental surgery DDS from the University of Alberta in Edmonton in 1990. He founded Ocean Dental and has been practicing and living in Burrnaby since 1990. He completed several levels of higher education in implant dentistry, implant surgery and grafting, both conventional fixed orthodontics and Invisalign orthodontic certification, cosmetic dentistry and prosthodontics, rotary endodontics, computerized CEREC milled restorations and LASER dentistry from the World Clinical Laser Institute as well as Facial Aesthetics Certification involving Botox Cosmetics and Filler treatments.

Away from dentistry, he enjoys golfing, playing hockey, as well as cooking, travel and skiing with his wife and two sons.
