Meet Your Dentists

Dr. Andrea Dernisky

Dr. Andrea Dernisky

General Dentist, Owner

The tri-cities has been home for Dr. Andrea K. Dernisky since 2008, a community she is proud to live in and serve while raising her three beautiful children, Arshan, Aran and Arya. Born and raised in Surrey, British Columbia, she spent five wonderful years in the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia and returned home to complete her Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of British Columbia. She immediately started her own practice here in Suter Brook Village with a keen eye to expanding her scope of cosmetics and orthodontics within her family practice. Currently, she is one of only three Diamond GP Invisalign providers in British Columbia and has successfully transformed over 750 smiles over the past decade. By far her greatest accomplishment has been the genuine relationships established, and laughs shared, between her team and the thousands of patients that have come to be part of our extended family.

Andrea’s fundamental belief is that when we establish a strong foundation, teeth will behave better, require less dental work, and ultimately last longer. She is passionate about educating her patients with help of 3D visualization tools, highlighting each person’s unique factors that have precluded them from obtaining optimized oral health. With the patient’s unique set of values, functional and cosmetic goals in mind, she strives to develop comprehensive treatment plans that will leave them delighted with the outcome. Andrea then uses a myriad of restorative options ranging from chairside fillings and veneers to crowns and bridges to give each patients a smile that allows us to achieve our collective core goal – creating healthy, confident smiles for every patient.

Anyone who knows Andrea, is acutely aware of her love for people and for her chosen profession. To this end, she never stops pushing the envelope further. Whether it is through mentoring colleagues alongside her partner, being an active member on the board of directors of the American Academy of Clear Aligners, lecturing on the perils of malocclusion, or helping trial and develop new technologies with Dr. David Penn to better serve the changing needs of her patients, her passion for dentistry and helping others has no bounds.

Dr. Irwind Bhatti

General Dentist

Dr. Bhatti received his Bachelor’s of Dental Surgery in Cairns, Australia or also known as “the land down under.” Irwind has a background of working in rural and Indigenous communities focusing on all aspects of dentistry. He has obtained certification in Oral Sedation and Nitrous Oxide, which helps patients who are nervous become more relaxed in the dental chair. He also is an active member of the British Columbia Dental Association and continues his efforts to provide dental education to the community. Dr. Bhatti focuses his work on dental fillings, crowns, root canals, tooth removal, and most importantly, preventative care. He prides himself in doing work that is honest and thorough. When Dr. Bhatti is not at work, he spends his time working out, spending time with family, and helping coach at his local highschool. He is a strong advocate in providing guidance and information to the youth in the city. Whether it comes from coaching basketball teams, or working on his own podcast, Dr. Bhatti is a pleasure to be around!
