Hard to find integrity nowadays, especially in a dentist and yet Dr Irinakis is in himself as honest as a gentleman comes. Thank you.

Thank you all at the office of Dr Irinakis for the wonderful care I have received over the years. It is greatly satisfying to know that any time I have a problem with my gums or missing teeth, I can count on the exceptional quality of your services and results. I’ve been there often over time and suspect will need to do so again ...soon. Not getting any younger you know. Love you guys!

I started this posting to praise the doctor but I would not be honest if I did not congratulate the amazing staff in Dr Irinakis ‘S clinic. Every single lady that has interacted with me has been nothing short of spectacular and deeply empathetic.

Are you kidding me? Dr Irinakis is on holidays in Europe and he actually received and communicated with me via text immediately! Not even a delay! That’s simply an astonishing level of openness and doctor experience. Enough said!

Hands down a premier PERIODONTIST in B.C. Have seen a few of those over the years but Dr Irinakis easily is the best.

To the people of Vancouver Island: We are so lucky! I have been travelling back and forth from one dentist to another over the last couple of years as I felt I was not heard and my pain was not addressed. Everyone was nice and everyone casually loaded me up with antibiotics. I was tired of the uncertainty of my teeth and the expenses I was about to dive into without any real explanation as to the reason behind all my problems. Then I met my latest dentist in Courtenay -a fantastic gentleman- who sat with me and spent the time to explain what he could do and what he could not do. He kindly explained that a big part of my problem could only be addressed by a Periodontist...and I'm thinking: "Why the H has no one told me this before?". And this is how I ended up with Dr. Irinakis in his chair in his new facility. I could tell from the start this guy was No BS. He was the real deal. Spoke to me frankly. Explained things in detail. Easily came to conclusions and recommendations and for the first time in years, I felt Confident! I felt that I am finally in Good Hands and my teeth will be addressed by someone with expertise and experience. We spent over an hour discussing my situation and I never felt rushed. On top of that, he called me that same week to discuss a certain point in my case in deeper detail after he received some xrays of mine from my dentist. This is who I was looking for! Dr. Irinakis is the go-to specialist on this Island in my books. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I waited several months to see Dr Irinakis and finally got to see him in July. Although I only had a consultation with him it is evident to me why he’s so popular. In today’s demanding society of everything needing to be done “yesterday “, it was refreshing to see a dentist who was in no rush and made an effort to “connect”. In fact, it seemed that he was able to connect with me quite effortlessly. He took his time to educate me on my problem and also eliminated that sense of urgency I usually get from my dentist. He was calm , smiling, reassuring. I could feel it that he would take care of things at the right time. He was certainly worth the wait

What a fantastic dental office. Best I've been in by far. I always gauge my dental and medical experiences to a significant extent based on how happy the staff seem. And boy does everyone seem happy in Dr. Irinakis' office ! The receptionists did an amazing job in checking my insurance coverage and emailed me the moment they heard back from my insurance. They answered all questions and were always available either by phone or email. Dr. Irinakis contacted me himself when my questions to his staff became more detailed. Essentially, you can see the elements of a great team in his office. So regardless of the successful dental work I had, I can also state that the calm , happy and friendly environment I identified during my first visit at his office continued without interruption through all my visits over the last two years.
