“I want to engage patients to feel empowered regarding their oral health and be a positive helpful part of their life”
Dr. Angelyn Salaberry has been practicing family dentistry since the year 2000. After spending the first four years of her career in Grand Forks and Vernon, she put down roots in Kelowna in 2004 and became a partner in a highly regarded local practice. In 2015, following over ten years of success as both a dentist and business owner, she made the decision to join the beautiful Landmark Dental Centre to focus on the practice of dentistry and broaden her horizons by joining BC Cancer as a dentist in Oral Oncology.
She is dedicated to all areas of family dentistry and believes wholeheartedly in the critical importance of seeking and maintaining current knowledge and experience. Her primary career goal is and has always been to offer the highest quality dentistry possible. To that end, she has undertaken extensive continuing education in general dentistry, endodontics, prosthodontics, pedodontics, oral surgery and aesthetics. In 2006 and 2007, she took part in two, nine-month-long residencies with a focus on comprehensive complex dentistry at the Ickert Teaching Centre (now the Ickert Dental Implant Center). In 2012, she graduated from the highly acclaimed Kois Center Post Graduate Program, thereby advancing her training in occlusion, grafting, aesthetics, implant and restorative dentistry. As of 2015, she has worked on a part-time basis with BC Cancer at Kelowna General Hospital, both sharing and expanding her dental expertise in the realm of oral oncology.
Dr. Salaberry’s early years were spent exploring pebble beaches, forests and art studios on Vancouver Island. With a family move, she discovered the Okanagan and entered the world of horseback riding, mountain biking, and skiing. She evolved into a goal-oriented individual with serious aspirations in science and moved on to study chemistry and microbiology at Okanagan University College, (as it then was), and the University of British Columbia. Her interest in dentistry was cultivated in part by her family dentist and her orthodontist, both of whom introduced her to the unexpectedly creative and stimulating nature of the work. She obtained her Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree from the University of British Columbia in the year 2000.
Outside of work, Dr. Salaberry cherishes time with her husband and two children. The whole family enjoys mountain biking, road cycling and downhill and cross-country skiing (though occasionally the younger family members need a bit of coaxing towards enjoyment of these activities!). With relatives living in various different corners of the globe, Dr. Salaberry and her husband have introduced their children to the joys of travel, adventure, and the constant journey of learning.
Dr. Salaberry has a genuine passion for doing a job well and a deep, sincere interest in helping others. Her love of practicing dentistry is due, in large part, to the fact that it allows her to apply these natural attributes. Her focus is and will always be on learning, listening to patients and applying her expertise to deliver the best possible care with compassion and kindness.
