After receiving my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from UBC, Dr. Fran went on to complete his General Practice Residency at Montefiore Medical Centre in New York and specialized Pediatric Dentistry Residency at the University of Minnesota.
He has a special interest in supporting anxious patients and using minimally invasive dentistry techniques. Oftentimes, the source of fear in children is deemed insignificant and consequently overlooked — Dr. Fran takes great joy in finding that source of fear and anxiety and working with it. His belief is that creating positive dental experiences for children helps to create good dental habits for life.
DR. MANDEEP GILL
CERTIFIED SPECIALIST IN PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY
Dr. Gill is a highly qualified pediatric dentist who has had an interesting journey in her career. She has a background in biochemistry and biology, which has given her a strong foundation in understanding the science behind dentistry. After completing her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Alberta and working in rural Alberta, Dr. Gill pursued her passion for pediatric dentistry and obtained a Master’s in Science in Craniofacial Science and a diploma in Pediatric Dentistry from the University of British Columbia.
What’s great about Dr. Gill is that she takes the time to get to know each child she treats, to understand their unique personality, strengths, and fears. She also considers the parent or guardian’s outlooks and beliefs when providing dental care to their child. As a result, she tailors each dental visit to meet the individual needs of the child, ensuring that they feel comfortable and safe during their visit.
As a parent, you want to ensure that your child is in good hands when it comes to their dental health. With Dr. Gill, you can trust that your child will receive the best possible care. Outside of work, Dr. Gill enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and puppy, watching movies and TV shows, and planning her annual visit to Disney.
