Dr. Edward Mah
Certified Specialist in Orthodontics
Through the numerous years of studying abroad, Dr. Mah finally returned home to Vancouver where he established his orthodontic office in North Burnaby in the latter half of 2003.
Originally thinking of being a general dentist, Dr. Mah changed his focus during his residency at UCSF towards orthodontics. He realized that he liked working with kids, and to him, seeing the improvement in their self-esteem is priceless. Since patients typically undergo orthodontic treatment from one to two years, Dr. Mah enjoys getting the chance to see his patients grow and mature. Dr. Mah also enjoys building a friendly relationship with all his patients.
Dr. Mah is a member of several associations including the Canadian Association of Orthodontists, American Association of Orthodontists, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, British Columbia Society of Orthodontics, Royal College of Dentists of Canada and the Canadian Dental Association.
As an orthodontic practice, we strive to create an office environment that is friendly, relaxing, and caring. We want all our patients and parents to be a part of our team. Our goal is to make the Orthodontic experience “fun”.
We offer metal, gold, or clear brackets and also Invisalign clear aligners for individuals that do not want traditional braces. We sterilize all our instruments after each patient with a medical-grade autoclave. A digital camera is used for all photographs; therefore, we can easily provide a copy to the patient or parents upon request. An up-to-date digital x-ray machine is used for all radiographs resulting in considerably less radiation exposure to the patient, when compared to traditional film based x-ray machines. By utilizing digital technology, we can easily email photographs and radiographs to general dentists to discuss and personalize the best treatment for each patient.
I established an Orthodontic practice to provide services that will improve the well-being of others. I have seen both children and adults gain self-esteem and self-confidence after receiving Orthodontic treatment. This is the reward and satisfaction that I receive from being an Orthodontist.
