Dr. Mark Hamanishi - Certified Specialist in Orthodontics

Dr. Mark grew up in Surrey and earned his undergraduate degree in Nutritional Sciences from UBC. He then moved to Boston where he received his DMD from Boston University and then to Pittsburgh where he completed his Orthodontic specialization at the University of Pittsburgh. He enjoyed a 6-year adventure practicing in Calgary, AB before moving back home to BC.

After several years approaching Orthodontics from all facets, Dr. Mark has spent the past 5 years focusing his Orthodontic skillset on clear aligner therapy for all ages and he treats hundreds of complex malocclusions each year using Invisalign®. Two years ago, he started his own Invisalign® mentoring company where he uses his expertise to remotely guide general dentists in the treatment of their own patients.

Dr. Hamanishi is a Diamond+ Invisalign® Provider

Diamond Plus ProviderDr. Mark tries to balance out his nerdiness in the office by trying to play golf (keyword- ‘trying’), running (he’s even run a marathon), and playing soccer (he’s no CR7, but played throughout his childhood and into University).

He has two rambunctious kiddos at home: a daughter obsessed with insects, dinosaurs, and rollerblading, and a son who wants to be just like his big sister, or maybe a superhero. He’s married to his equally nerdy, high school sweetheart who is both a scientist and a high school teacher.

Dr. Mark believes in using the latest digital technology to treat his patients and he can’t wait to meet you and reveal your new smile at your consultation using our 3D scanner and an instant smile simulator. We know… super nerdy stuff, but hey, that’s our new Orthodontist!

Dr. Ehsan Taheri

Little bit about me – I grew up in Vancouver, Richmond and North Vancouver. I attended UBC for both my undergrad and dentistry graduating in 2011. Back in 2013 we moved to North Vancouver and been raising our family of 5 right here in Lynn valley. We love it here and its sense of community.

My philosophy as a dentist is to treat all the patients the same way I’d treat my own family. Provide the most comprehensive and patient centred care that keeps the patient involved in the decision making process. Communication is key and I truly believe use of technology and imagery helps bring you the patient into the fold when it comes to treatment planning.

My special interest is in dental implants and grafting. I still enjoy other aspects of general dentistry though. Looking forward to meeting you at the clinic.
