Dr. Maxim Bondarenko was inspired to pursue a career in dentistry after growing up observing his grandfather, an oral surgeon, from a young age. In the year 2000, he began his career as a dental technician in Vancouver, specializing in fixed prosthetics including implant dentistry and CAD/CAM. During this time, he worked towards earning his undergraduate degree in biological and psychological sciences. In 2014, he graduated from the University of Manitoba as a Doctor of Dental Medicine and began practicing as a general dentist in Winnipeg Manitoba.
Since then, Dr. Max has become an active member of the dental community by participating in study clubs and continuing education courses. Driven by a passion for professional growth and development, he has continued to expand his range of skills through the completion of soft tissue laser program and atraumatic minimal tooth movement. A dedication to personal health and wellness inspired him to explore holistic dental practices, an interest which led him back to Vancouver to practice at Dr. Ara Elmajian and Associates. Guided by the biological protocols of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology as well as by the body’s natural healing mechanisms, Dr. Max provides quality treatment and aesthetic results. Today, he continues to pursue his interests in biologically compatible techniques in dentistry, fixed dental prosthetics, dental implantology and comprehensive holistic dental care.
Dr. Max believes that positive attitudes produce positive outcomes, and that excellent dentistry bridges together essential dental techniques with a positive doctor-patient relationship. Approaching each of his patients with compassion and understanding, his most gratifying moments are those which make a difference in the lives of his patients.
In his spare time, Dr. Max enjoys hiking the great outdoors, snowboarding, soccer and spelunking.
