Welcome to Driftwood Dental

Our dental clinic has provided dentistry to the community of Courtenay, British Columbia for 25 years. If you’re new to the Comox Valley and are looking for a dentist, we would love to see your smile.

We'll treat you like family, and we’re a dedicated group that truly cares about you. We look forward to providing you with the personalized dental care that you deserve. As a general dental practice, we also provide all forms of sedation for dentistry: General Anesthesia, IV sedation, oral and nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Depending on your level of nervousness or the complexity of your treatment, sedation could be the answer to help you get through your dental appointments comfortably.

Our 'all under one roof' team approach to dentistry includes general dentists Dr. John McGaw, Dr. Robert Borland and Dr. Cody Lin; board-certified specialist Dr. Alex Chen (Pediatric Dentist); and our team of registered hygienists and certified dental assistants.

We’re all here to work with you to find the best solution for your dental needs.
