My experience in Dr. Irinakis' practice is one of wonder at his incredible results. I walked in there after a severe accident a while back. Multiple bone fractures and several doctors and dental specialists got involved. Dr. Irinakis was the periodontist specialist involved in my case, participating in the reconstruction of my face and mouth. My oral surgeon who led my case, insisted that no matter what he does, in the end it would be the magic touch of Dr. Irinakis who will make my smile look "as natural as possible". I was hesitant and tired from the repeated operations and rehabilitation efforts but in the end all my doctors and dentist specialists delivered an incredible outcome, to the point that no one can really tell the kind of destruction my appearance had suffered. My new dentist did not realize anything was amiss until he received copies of my records. When your smile is in trouble, you want Dr. Irinakis on your team! Thank you so much for everything you have done for me.

Tassos has been my periodontist on the island for a few years now since his Campbell River days and now in Courtenay. I can attest to the excellent communication skills and bedside manners this gentleman has. I have to travel far to see him but I would gladly even go to vancouver if I had to , to see him. My implants have all been successful and have changed my life. I'm retired now and I thought I would be condemned to wearing dentures for the rest of my life. But with my implants the quality of my nutrition has made me healthier and I don't feel socially awkward anymore with food getting stuck under my dentures. He's simply a great guy and certainly my Go To implant doctor.

It has been a true pleasure meeting Tasso and his staff a few years ago. I have had a plethora of procedures done over time and have been impressed with every one of them. To state that he is the Best is just not enough to describe the experience. He's passionate, respectful, kind, masterfully skilled and a really beautiful human being.

I don't like dentists. Not a shocker, I know. But honestly people this dentist is truly All That! What a calming and educational experience. So from now on I'll be saying that I don't like dentists with the exception of one cool Dr Irinakis!

I've worked with Tassos for over a decade, referring my patients to him and observing the results. He is a busy man so sometimes my patients need to see other periodontists in a timely manner. This has offered me the opportunity to compare the treatment philosophy and overall results from 6 different Perio specialists. I would not be exaggerating if I were to say that although every one I have worked with has provided good results, the overall experience and outcome from Tassos are just a few notches above. It could be that he was the director of the implant program at UBC that gave him an edge combined with his winning personality. It could be the highly efficient and polite assistants and receptionists. Regardless, every single one of my patients have informed me of a wonderful and caring professional (and staff) and I can attest to the exceptionally high standards Tassos sets for himself and exceeds on a daily basis. Anyone who knows him can tell you that he "lives and breaths" his work.

As much as I love Dr Irinakis and his cosmetically impressive work I would like to comment on the incredibly organized clinic. Everyone there treat you like family with respect, humour and care. And they were always on top of everything and communicated with me and with my own dentist and other specialists that were needed in my case. Just a superb experience !
