My name is Dr. Dustin Holben and I would like to personally thank you for visiting our website, and welcome you to our practice.
I was raised on a grain farm in west central Saskatchewan, and completed my dental training in Saskatoon. I moved to Victoria after graduation in 2001 and have been practicing here ever since. I have spent the last 14+ years working in the west shore as a partner with the Colwood Dental Group. It was a great place to grow, learn, and develop my skills in a profession that I absolutely love.
For the past 3 1/2 years I have been a member of the board for the College of Dental Surgeons, our governing and regulatory body. I have also been on the executive committee for our local dental society for a number of years as well. I care deeply about my profession, and feel that it is important to give back and contribute.
I am excited to be able to offer a wide range of options for our patients of all ages to help restore and maintain them to optimal health, function, and aesthetics. I am passionate about implant dentistry and regenerative procedures. This includes bone grafting and sinus lift procedures to regrow and enhance the foundation of bone to facilitate placing implants for long term success. I place implants and restore them with either fixated, or removable options depending on the needs of the patient. We also offer sedation options for those who may require a little something extra to help make you feel comfortable and relaxed for any of the dental treatments you may need.
In addition, I have devoted time to receiving training and experience in treating TMJ issues, orthodontics, and dental lasers. This offers the opportunity to address and treat not only your aesthetic concerns but also functional TMJ problems non-invasively. This is accomplished with the use of either removable appliances or comprehensive orthodontics with braces. Utilizing laser technology, we can manipulate soft tissues and decrease inflammation in a safe, comfortable manner with typically faster recovery time than conventional methods.
I am extremely fortunate to work with a group of individuals that are caring, empathetic, and really are here for you. We are here to offer high quality, comprehensive dental care for the entire family, and we offer later appointments to help accommodate your busy schedule. We will treat you in a lighthearted, professional atmosphere that is sure to make you feel comfortable. We will thoroughly explain your treatment options so that you can make decisions that are right for you. Give our office a call. Our family would love to meet yours.
