Meet Dr. Robert Hogarth
Dr Hogarth grew up in Vancouver with two brothers and parents who are originally from Goderich, Ontario. Robbie and his brothers were always very active in sports such as skiing and gymnastics. When he isn’t working or spending time with his friends and family, he is out in the nature that only beautiful British Columbia can offer.
Robert has been passionate about dentistry since an early age after spending time with this grandfather who was a dentist in London, Ontario. Dentistry is a dynamic profession that allows one to engage with people on a friendly and professional way but is also technically precise and requires abundant continuing education. These are qualities that Dr Hogarth finds very appealing and fulfilling in a career.
Education is a lifelong process and Robert is grateful that he was educated around the world and with the best teachers available. Rob accomplished a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology from the University of Saskatchewan and then attended Semmelweis University in Budapest Hungary where is gained his Doctor of Dental Surgery. After working in a private practice in Limerick Ireland, Robert completed an Advanced Dental Degree at Boston University, Henry M Goldman School of Dental Medicine. The experience of living and schooling abroad has given Dr Hogarth a wide perspective on people and culture.
Robert’s continuing dental education has focused mainly on surgery and prosthodontics, where he can add a holistic approach to treatment planning and patient care. With a strong understanding of oral and systemic physiology as well as a form and function in occlusion and dental materials, Robert can use an aesthetically guided treatment plan coordinated for each patient on an individual basis.
As a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, he is SMART certified and puts the patient’s systemic health as the overarching priority. Furthermore, Robert has graduated from the NYU FMR program for full mouth reconstruction as well and numerous hands-on courses in implant placement, wisdom tooth extraction, soft tissue grafting and other esthetic dental fields. Currently, Robert is a member of the gIDE Implant Masters program and is always looking for ways to expand his dental and medical knowledge.
