Dr Alan Keil has recently begun practicing at the ToothWhisperer. He brings 30 years of experience as a dentist with considerable expertise in crowns, bridges, veneers and orthodontics (both braces and invisible tooth straightening aligners). He loves helping people improve their smiles! He will be at the clinic on Mondays accompanied by his dental assistant Susan Wright.
Dr. Keil studied general sciences at the University of Guelph, received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Western Ontario and received both a Master’s in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia and a Teachers’ Certificate from Simon Fraser University. He has a particular interest in perfecting the smile, having taken numerous advanced courses in orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Keil taps into his skills as a teacher with his patients actively using fun visuals and his wonderful sense of humour to explain sometimes complicated situations and procedures. He is fantastic with kids and draws on his gentle nature and his counselling degree in particular when working with anyone (children and adults) who experiences fear and anxiety around visits to the dentist. Dr. Keil’s broad range of interests has brought him to practice and/or teach dentistry in French West Africa, Malaysia, Central America and throughout First Nation reserves in northern Canada and the Inuit communities of the Canadian Arctic.
Dr. Keil’s love of learning has fostered his practice of dentistry. He has spent close to 30 years doing so out of the Dundarave Dental Clinic in West Vancouver.
