Dr. Suzuki grew up in London Ontario and attended the University of Western Ontario completing his degree in Zoology in 1991. Later he moved to Winnipeg to complete his dental degree DMD in 1995. To enhance his education he then completed a General Practice Residency at the University of British Columbia in 1996. Following that he completed a residency at Vancouver General Hospital and UBC in 1996 and then returned to dental school again to complete his Masters degree in Orthodontics in 1999.
He has been practicing as a board-certified specialist in orthodontics since 2000, working out of his two offices in Vancouver and Coquitlam BC. During that time Dr. Suzuki was a part-time instructor at the UBC dental school in 2002, served as president of the BC Society of Orthodontists in 2007 and also was a member of the Board at the College of Dental Surgeons from 2008 to 2014. He remains a volunteer member of the Inquiry committee at the College which deals with resolving patient complaints made to the College.
Dr. Suzuki maintains his education through memberships in the Canadian and American Associations of Orthodontists as well as the Canadian Dental Association, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists and the BC Society of Orthodontists. He is also a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, an honour granted only to those dental specialists who write and pass an examination in their specialty, in this case, Orthodontics.
Dr. Suzuki’s passion is advancing orthodontic treatment protocols utilizing the latest technological innovations to deliver exemplary care to his patients that exceeds their expectations. He has treated over 5000 cases to date and looks forward to the coming years since making the decision to join the practice of Dr. Brent Corlazzoli and relocate to the beautiful Kelowna area.
