Meet Your Dentists
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. Ahmed Juboori
Dr. Juboori was 10 years old when he knew dentistry was what he wanted to do when he grew up. In Egypt, he was able to follow his dream at Misr University for Science and Technology. Spending one year doing a postgraduate residency in a university hospital and excelling in his training – while training simultaneously in three private dental clinics – Dr. Juboori gained extensive experience in all aspects of dentistry (particularly dental surgery). Dentistry is a passion for him.
This passion drives his energy into giving his patients an excellent experience in the dental chair. Dr. Juboori cleared his NDEB equivalency exams at both the University of British Columbia and the University of Saskatchewan to become a licensed general dentist in Canada. He is a registrant of the British Columbia dental Association and the College of Dental Surgeons of BC. Dr. Juboori is a lifelong learner. While he’s not in the office doing what he loves most, you can find him attending a course or a conference to further his knowledge and enhance the quality of dental care he provides to his patients. Outside of dentistry, he may be found on a hiking trail, in the gym, bungee jumping in Whistler or on a jet ski on one of the beautiful lakes in British Columbia. He enjoys travelling, playing soccer, video games, driving and spending quality time with family and friends.
Dr. Kiani grew up on the North Shore where she was a swimming instructor and lifeguard during her teenage years. She then attended the University of British Columbia to pursue a Bachelor in Kinesiology & Health Sciences followed by a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD).
Dr. Kiani exudes warmth and kindness to everyone around her, and is a natural fit to our family-oriented practice. She has a zest for life and an authentic love for human connection that makes her an incredible asset and advocate for our patients. Dr. Kiani is passionate about providing comprehensive, preventive care for her patients, and takes strides to individualize each patient’s care based on their own unique values and circumstances. Although she has great interest in cosmetic pursuits, Dr. Kiani is happy to provide a full range of services to all patients and every age group.
Dr. Kiani believes in being a lifelong learner in dentistry and values continuing education so she can provide her patients with the most up-to-date, modern services available.
In her spare time, Dr. Kiani enjoys rock climbing, swimming, playing drums, and spending time with her family, friends, and two cats.
