Dr. Richard Hayden’s Island Dental Centre, Salt Spring Island, BC offers general dental services, cosmetic dentistry, adult orthodontics, as well as emergency and restorative dentistry in a serene and pleasant adult-oriented setting.

With a focus on providing the latest advances in modern dental technology Dr Hayden and his staff serve local clients and those from surrounding areas including Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands and the mainland.

It's not like it used to be.

"We use lasers to treat gum disease, computers to make porcelain fillings and crowns, we store x ray pictures digitally, we use a computerized pump to dispense anaesthetic and titaniam "roots" to replace missing teeth," Dr Hayden explains.

Dr. Hayden was the first dentist in Canada to be trained and licensed for LANAP, (laser periodontal treatment) -- an example of his commitment to incorporating modern and sophisticated dental procedures in his practice. Visiting the dentist is more comfortable and relaxing than ever before.

"Our patients love the pleasant atmosphere in our office and the beautiful setting - we have a great view of the ocean, pleasing landscaping and interesting art work. They also appreciate the new technologies we offer that increase comfort and reduce their time in the chair. Our patients want to have healthy teeth and gums that look and feel great."
