I am a retired, general practitioner who has had the privilege of treating dental patients for well over 45 years. I have been extremely proactive in the dental community throughout my dental career, being involved on both Provincial and National levels.

I’m currently a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of BC Dental Faculty. Instructing and helping  aspiring younger dental students is something I love to do and have been doing for over 20 years. I have received a few awards from the College of Dental Surgeons of BC in recognition for my services such as: Treasurer , Deputy Registrar, Chair of Peer Review Committee, Chair of Ethics Committee and Chair of Standards of Practice Committee. Examiner Member of the BC Dental Board Exams and National Dental Examining Board of Canada,(NDEB) for several years.

I was appointed and served as Regent (District 1 of BC) of the International College Of Dentists ( FICD, Canadian Section) and chaired their Project’s Committee for over 6 years.

I was an active member of the KE Murchie Restorative Study Club for over 40 years and past member of The American Academy of Operative Dentistry. Currently, I’m a member in good standing of the American College of Dentists (FACD) and the FICD.

I offer free health tips and advice regarding your dental and financial health . I want you the consumer to be aware of all of the alternative treatments available to you and their costs. It is absolutely imperative that you get all the necessary information regarding your dental exam and any treatment plan or plans suggested .

In order to make an informed decision, your dentist must be able to communicate with you in terms that you can understand. Ask lots of questions ! Almost every confrontation between a patient and dentist is a result of a misunderstanding of treatments provided and the costs of such treatments.

If you ever have doubts regarding treatments recommended, get a second or even a third opinion if necessary. X-rays should be made available if you require them to get that second opinion. !

Please direct your questions to my e-mail address,

Dr. William P.Catalano, DDS, FICD, FACD
