About Our Office
Welcome to the Terra Nova Dental Centre – a proud Richmond dental practice. We’re a welcoming group of highly trained dental professionals who love making our clients happy and comfortable. We offer basic dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and additional services such as implants.
Terra Nova Dental Centre is very proud to offer our services in English, Cantonese, Mandarin and Taiwanese.
The primary focus of Terra Nova Dental Centre is Family Dentistry. We provide a wide range of dental services for adults and children in a comfortable and relaxed office environment. The Dentists and staff always try hard to take the time to explain things to patients and answer their questions. Our open office setup allows for an an abundance of natural light for the comfort of our patients. We have much of the latest in dental equipment, which enables us to provide the most efficient and comfortable dental treatment. Also, for the benefit of our patients, each operatory is equipped with ceiling-mounted televisions and wireless headphones (to drown out the sound of the dreaded “drill”).
Sterilization and Recycling
Our office takes great pride in having very high standards for cleanliness and sterilization for the absolute safety of our patients. Hands-free operation of our operatory lights, sinks and soap dispensers allow us to minimize cross contamination. Although we are generally environment conscious, we use disposeable supplies where necessary for the protection of our patients. If there are any questions or concerns regarding our sterilization procedures, please do not hesitate to ask any of the dentists or staff members.
In striving to be an environmentally friendly office, we attempt to recycle paper products and plastics where we can, and harmful chemicals are filtered and disposed of as safely as possible. Also, the majority of our light fixtures are Power Smart.
We use digital X-rays in our office to take images of your teeth and jaws. These advanced X-ray machines use digital technology to take X-ray images without the use of film. Digital X-rays produce higher quality images than traditional X-rays, improving our ability to diagnose decay and disease and keeping you healthier. They also use much less energy than traditional machines, which reduces your exposure to radiation.
We welcome children to our office and do our best to ensure that each visit is as positive as possible. Parents are welcome to accompany their child into the treatment room to discuss procedures or ask questions. We usually recommend that children start seeing a dentist at the age of three. Dr. Yu and Dr. Yang offer basic orthodontic services for younger patients.
As an incentive for the kids, we have a NO CAVITY CLUB which rewards our younger patients with maintaining good oral health. Their photo is proudly displayed on our Wall of Fame and are also automatically entered into our annual Summer Prize Draw.
We also have an excellent team of local Dental Specialists who we refer our patients to as needed. Our office also provides 24 hour emergency dental care 7 days a week. We are here to serve you. If there are any questions concerning our services, please feel free to ask any of the dentists or the staff members.
Insurance & Billing
For your convenience, we accept most dental insurance plans. Our dental fees are based on the current fee guide of the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia.
