Dr. Anik Was raised in Burnaby B.C but went to Winnipeg to complete his B.Sc in microbiology with a minor in philosophy. Following this, he entered the faculty of dentistry and graduated with a D.M.D in 2013. Anik believes every patient requires a treatment specific to their needs, as everyone's health needs are unique. "I feel that dentistry is unfortunately becoming more of a business than a healthcare profession. I want my patients to know that they are coming to a dentist who is focused on their needs and their concerns, not on selling them the latest gadget or gimmick. I want my patients to come to me because of the care and attention to detail I offer." He is continually expanding his knowledge in all aspects of dentistry by taking extensive continuing education courses in a variety of fields including endodontics, implanvology and gum grafting. In his spare time he enjoys playing volleyball and basketball with friends, or relaxing and reading a book.
