Meet Dr. Derek Clease, BSc, MSc, DMD:

Dr. Clease was born on Vancouver Island and moved to  North Vancouver in 1975. Derek attended the University of British Columbia, receiving his M.Sc. (Zoology) in 1990.  In 1994 Derek graduated from the U.B.C. Dental School with a Doctorate in Dental Medicine (DMD). At the graduation he was awarded the Gold Medal, for having maintained the highest average through ALL four years of dental school.  

Since graduating, Dr. Clease has pursed his interests in comprehensive restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and implantology through countless hours of continuing education. He has been a past part-time clinical instructor at the U.B.C. School of Dentistry and has sat on the dental school admissions and interview committees. Derek also mentors an accredited study club for the continuing education of fellow dentists. Opening the Vancouver Dental Spa is the culmination of years of planning and hard work.
