Our Local Dentists, Vancouver Downtown
We have a Fantastic Team!
The team at Bentall Dental really loves what they do and it shows. They are a small and hearty team that only changes when people leave because they are moving away from Vancouver. Our friendly staff love making your visit as comfortable as possible.
Dr. Andrew Shannon
Dr. Andrew Shannon, General Dentist, is passionate about dentistry. His first passion was pursuing a career in stunts; however, he soon realized that he was more talented with his hands and wanted to put them to good use to make a difference in people’s lives.
Dr. Shannon has been in practice in the Bentall Centre since 1987. His focus has been on cosmetic procedures; however, he believes that each procedure he performs should be beautifully done and functionally sound. Speaking of sound, how often do you hear a dentist sing while he works – and carry a tune!
Dr. Andy Lee
Dr. Andy Lee is a General Dentist. After earning his qualifications from the University of Adelaide and the University of British Columbia, Dr. Andy Lee began his
career as a warm and patient dentist. He first became interested in dentistry after he fractured a few of his own front teeth and saw
first-hand the impact dental restorations could have.
Because he enjoys providing others with the same type of help he once needed, Dr. Lee has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry
and functional restorations. However, he’s well-versed in a wide range of dental care.
Dr Lee is a big believer in ensuring patients are informed about their oral health as well as their treatment options. He enjoys
helping anxious patients relax (and maybe even laugh a bit).
Besides caring for others’ smiles, Dr. Lee is also a fan of basketball, tennis and discovering new gadgets.
