I would like to thank Dr. Irinakis and the Team for the care that they have given me in the last year. My first visit was for a Mandibular left gum graft, my first one, last year. I was under a lot of personal stress and the surgery was also another worry, but  with the care of everyone at your clinic, Dr. Irinakis included, it has been a good experience. Today's final visit was for a Maxillary left gum graft checkup and it was again a good experience.  This year has been a whirlwind for me, I went back to school to become a Health Care Office Assistant and did not realize how much my education would parallel my own personal health.   I am very happy that you have fixed my gingival recessions and it has been a very good experience.   Bethany W

I remember the first time I entered Tassos’ Office several years ago for an Implant consultation. He had pleasantly surprised me with his funny and friendly nature. My work went well. The implant looked great. Fast forward to all these years later and I’ve had additional implants, gum grafting, extractions and who remembers what else. I can attest to a consistently fantastic experience with his amazing staff. He is soothing, and his assistants are all caring and entertaining! If I were in the profession, THIS IS THE CLINIC I’d like to work in!

You cannot think of the word “Implants” in BC and not think of Tassos Irinakis. The guy has created an unparalleled reputation in the industry from both a clinical and academic standpoint. I am a dental specialist myself who has practiced in 2 provinces and has a vast network of colleagues. Tassos is the real deal. I’m writing this review as he came up yesterday in a debate between dentists. It was interesting to see how everyone was looking at me in awe when I mentioned how well I know Tassos. That alone speaks volumes. A true Master in Dentistry, A true philanthropist and a True Person to his patients and colleagues. Kudos to you my friend.

Once again Dr Irinakis, Dr Sadeghi and Dr Aminzadeh have proven why they are premier educators and clinicians. Their 7 day Implant Course cane to a stunning conclusion yesterday at UBC. I learned so much more than just placing dental implants. I learned what it takes to be a great doctor. Thank you gentlemen for the experience!

When was the last time you had Fun at the dentist? Exactly!!!! And yet I always enjoy my visits to Tassos’ Office. Everyone smiles, he hums and sings along the radio and his assistants and him make funny comments to lighten the mood. All this in a natural unforced way. You noticed how I didn’t even mention anything about treatment and surgeries. Because your mind just follows their lead and enjoys the moment.

This is the kind of review that always lightens my mood. You made my weekend! Thank you for your kind words and the positive review. It is true that my assistants and I have the best time when we work. We enjoy every minute of our day, doing our best to serve our patients and at the same time alleviate their stress and bring a smile to their face. I will work of course on being more "in tune' with the songs so I don't limit myself to humming but actually sing next time you come!! Cheers. Tasso Irinakis

When asking for a referral to an implant specialist after moving to BC , among my dentist contacts, Dr Irinakis was almost always in the top 2 choices. Quite remarkable. I made the appointment, endured the months of waiting and finally got to meet him last month. He was EXACTLY as promised. Professional, Ethical, Caring, Inspiring and a great employer as well. I am not easily impressed but Dr. Tasso did it. Looking forward to seeing the magic for myself.

I would totally refer my friends and families my to Dr Irinakis. He and his staff are both professional yet open hearted. ..a magical combination to promote healing. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Dr Irinakis is “Stellar Competence!” Tassos, I would encourage you to teach others how to run their business using your philosophy.

I have read through a few of the reviews and honestly I feel I would be better expressed by copying a couple of others’ opinions, i.e. “Having now met him, I can attest to his friendly and down to earth demeanor, his willingness to go out of his way to help” and “The level of attention that I received from his office has not been matched by anyone else in his industry since”. Feel exactly like that!
