"Truly Invested in the Patient's Well-Being" What Patients Are Saying about Us

I highly recommend Enlighten Dental. I have never experienced that level of customer service at the dentist. Not only did they all make me feel incredible comfortable, but the service I received from every single person I interacted with was top notch.  My dentist is Dr. Anthony. He takes his time to explain every question I had and is very careful, caring, and thorough during his treatment. Also, the view of the Westend/Yaletown Vancouver is incredible and the best distraction ever.

This is by far the most advanced, professional and best run dental clinic in Vancouver.  I have been a patient of Sam Paulos, the owner of the clinic, for the last 3 years dealing with an extremely difficult dental case. Sam has by far exceeded all expectations in terms of skills, knowledge, providing innovative solutions and making himself available.  The part I appreciate the most is that he is an extremely caring and compassionate human being that is truly invested in his patients' well being...

Did You Know? Your Oral Health Can Directly Influence Your Overall Health

Holistic dentistry is not just about using bio-friendly materials and delivering highly aesthetic results. It is designed to improve your oral health and, in turn, boost your overall wellness

Research compiled by the Ontario Dental Hygienists' Association shows that dental conditions like cavities and gum disease can introduce bacteria to the bloodstream or airways, which can lead to serious health issues such as heart disease, stroke, and respiratory disorders. 

Health Canada, The World Health Organization, and local governments all agree: "The public cannot be healthy without oral health."

As a biological dentist and a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, Dr. Sam Paulos stays informed on the latest advancements in holistic dentistry to give his Vancouver, BC, patients the safest care.

Our 3-Phase Approach to Holistic Dental Care

Enlighten Dental is one of the largest and longest-standing holistic wellness centers in the entire Pacific Northwest, so patients visit our Vancouver dentists from all over Canada and other parts of North America. Our mission is to educate patients, solve their oral issues, and improve their health as a result. Here is how we approach each case to maintain that mission:

Phase 1: Diagnosis

Our dentists and partnering doctors perform a series of tests to diagnose your health problems, build a custom treatment plan, and address urgent issues.

Phase 2: Treatment

Based on your diagnosis, our dentists will begin to perform treatments that address your oral and overall health issues. As comprehensive dentists, we are able to provide most of the dental care you need without referring you to outside specialists. From simple general dentistry procedures to complex implant dentistry cases, our dentists can do it all. If you need medical care, we can even connect you with a trusted medical doctor at Kinetic Patterns—a medical office located in the same building.

Phase 3: Stabilization

Once your treatment is complete, our goal is to prevent future issues. We will schedule a follow-up appointment to assess your health and treat dental issues before they require costly, extensive treatments.
