about our Kitsilano dental clinic

Warm, fun, friendly, and non-judgemental – these are the qualities we aspire to at la vita dental centre. Our goal is to offer you dentistry from a happy place, and our group of high-energy dental professionals and support staff takes that goal seriously. These qualities and goals aren’t just words to us, they are a mantra we infuse into every aspect of your dental experience with us. Experiences such as our comprehensive new patient exam, that includes both an iTero® scan and dedicated one-on-one time with one of our dentists for you to discuss your dental dreams and concerns. The iTero scan is a detailed 3D scan that is used to track your teeth’s movement over time, educate you and your dental team about the condition of your teeth, and has the added bonus of being useful by preparing you for Invisalign® should you ever want to straighten your teeth using their clear aligners.

your kitsilano neighbourhood dental clinic

Our team at la vita dental centre are all Kitsilano residents and neighbours. We live, eat, and shop locally, supporting other local Kitsilano businesses. Our sense of community is important to us, and we work every day to remind ourselves of how amazing this place is, how fortunate we are to live and work here, and how warm and friendly the people of Kitsilano are to work with.

Kitsilano is a special place. From the beaches to W 16th, from Burrard to Alma, Kitsilano is a melting pot of cultures and people. Just walk a block down West 4th in either direction and you will get an idea of the Kits lifestyle. A rich mosaic of high-end boutiques and wonderful family-owned diners and unique eateries. All of this anchored with foundational businesses like Whole Foods, Safeway, and if we may say so our own little local Kitsilano dental clinic.

Feel free to drop in and meet us, any time. We’re always happy to meet our neighbours, and we enjoy sharing the Kits lifestyle. And if you ask us where to eat, you’ll definitely get suggestions. With so much variety in the neighbourhood, it may not be an easy decision, but it’s always a fun conversation. That’s the Kitsilano lifestyle we love so much.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough! Dr. Flumerfelt and her team go above and beyond for their patients. Everyone was incredibly friendly, helpful, very professional and most importantly I didn’t feel judged at all. Thank you so much for all you do! I felt very comfortable throughout my visit and am so grateful I found this place!

I highly recommend La Vita Dental. Dr. Okyere is an excellent dentist! She is professional, very knowledgeable, explains procedures clearly, and makes me feel comfortable. When I see her I always feel like I am under good care. The hygienists always put me at ease, are personable, give me very helpful guidance on caring for my teeth, are patient, and are thorough. The staff at the front desk are very friendly, efficient, and take care of insurance issues so smoothly. The clinic provides
great care and makes dentist visits an enjoyable experience.

I had my first new patient appointment today and was very impressed. The technology they use for assessing issues and what needs to be addressed in the short and long term was like nothing I’ve experienced and inspired confidence that I made the right choice! The team is delightful and my cleaning was done efficiently and pain-free. I also got some great tips for taking care of my teeth. I have no hesitation recommending La Vita.
