Alaska Avenue Dental Clinic would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Mike O'Brien for being part of our team for the last few years. We will all miss him for his attention to detail, caring personality, sense of humour, and of course all of the spontaneous renditions of 90's rap classics that we have been treated to over the years. After several years working with us in our community, Dr. O'Brien has purchased his own clinic in Burnaby, BC. All of us at Alaska Avenue would like to congratulate Mike and we wish him all the best for the future. This news is bittersweet to us, because while Dr. O'Brien will be missed, we are happy for him, and know he is thrilled to be able to be home with his wife and family.
We would also like to welcome Dr. Jocelyn Shih to our practice. Dr. Shih looks forward to treating Dr. O'Brien's patients, and welcomes new patients as well. Dr. Shih is a recent graduate of the UBC dental program and will be starting her dental career in Fort St. John this July. Dr. Shih will be relocating to our city from Vancouver and can't wait for the adventure to begin! She is thrilled about the opportunity to practice all aspects of general dentistry while being mentored by Dr. Myers and Dr. Wong. We are very excited to welcome her to our team, and into our community.
