Meet Dr. Vik Sharma
Dr. Vik Sharma
Dr. Vik Sharma is a North Burnaby native, receiving his bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from Simon Fraser University in 2008 before earning his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of British Columbia in 2013. He spent the next five years practicing in a rural clinic in Yellowknife helping those in need without access to regular dental care.
From working on medically compromised patients with ages ranging from 3-90 in a hospital setting to providing urgent care to patients in correctional facilities, his experience in Yellowknife gave him valuable dental experience and life-changing insight into the human condition.
Dr. Sharma returned to his hometown to help serve the community that raised him. He looks forward to forming new relationships and continuing his lifelong journey in search of the latest dental technology and techniques. Dr. Sharma loves educating patients about the connection between oral health and their overall health. He finds the ability to improve a patient’s life after a simple 5-minute conversation empowering.
Dr. Sharma enjoys taking continuing education courses in gum surgery, bone grafting, and has completed one of North America’s most rigorous 300-hour implant programs.
When he is not caring for his patients, he likes to stay active at the gym, volunteer, and enjoy the beautiful natural hiking trails that BC has to offer.
