About Chatterton Way Dental

From fillings to implants to crowns & bridges to root canals, we offer a full range of dental services using the latest technology and techniques to provide you with a healthy, great-looking smile.

Our independent dental practice in Saanich offers expert restorative and preventative dentistry. We provide you with the right amount of dental treatment and will not upsell you on treatments you don’t need. We use the British Columbia Dental Association (BCDA)’s annual suggested fee guide for all our services. This is important, because when your insurance says “80% is covered”, they mean 80% of the BCDA suggested fee.

We pride ourselves on our calming environment where each patient gets our full attention and treatments are never rushed. We take your comfort seriously: while we can’t promise pain-free treatments, our goal is for you to experience as little discomfort as possible. Our advanced equipment allows our skilled team members to provide gentle, effective dental care.

Your experience is our priority.

Our bright, brand-new clinic opened in October 2022. We carefully designed it for spaciousness, comfort, and accessibility. We’ve installed state-of-the-art equipment throughout, from the digital imaging technology to the entertainment system to the tools we use to clean and polish your teeth.

A VirusKiller™ anti-viral air filtration unit helps purify the air, and we observe stringent infection control and sterilization protocols throughout the clinic.

Most important, though, is our approach to patient care. Every member of our team is chosen not only for their professional training, but also for their great attitudes that make every patient feel welcome. When you come in to see us, we want you to know you’re in good hands with people who care about your wellbeing.

Jennifer did an excellent job with my cleaning, super gentle and careful. Dr. Foulkes was very kind and took his time to do a thorough exam and explain some questions about my health. I am so happy to have found a new permanent dentist. Thank you!
