Remarkable doctor who will never complain of questions and looks you in the eye. He just finds ways to relate with you. He even gave me his cell number to text or call should I have any concerns or questions with his services. He returns his texts instantly! Not even my grandson does that. I go for the expertise and service but I stay because of Who he is as a human being. Great man.

It is so cool that websites like these exist to share your experience with doctors and other health professionals. It offers you the opportunity to identify those who exceed expectations and to avoid those who score below average. I am a millennial. I can tell you that I live and breathe the web. I chose Dr. Irinakis based on this website and the countless positive reviews he has.

Thank you Dr Irinakis for the service you provide in our community. I moved to the Valley nearly 10 years ago and always felt that we had a shortage of high caliber specialists. I had decided to seek the advice of a specialist in the big city in vancouver. Your move to our city has changed that. I feel now confident in proceeding with my implant work in your office knowing that the quality of care you provide surpasses that of most other doctors in BC. Please make an effort to bring more people like you here.

I have seen quite a few dental specialists and non specialists over the years but I have never experienced the level of professionalism and caring that I experienced this week when I first met Dr Irinakis.

I recently moved to Vancouver island with my parents. Dr Irinakis came highly recommended by a hygienist friend of mine who was at a lecture of his. I have a gummy smile in my gum recession is very evident so I needed some gum grafting. She swore that his gum grafts were the best she had ever seen and so I booked an appointment with him in Courtenay. My first visit was quite pleasant. His assistant was very polite and friendly and that put me at ease right away. Dr Irinakis came into the exam room with a big smile on his face and gave me a handshake. He asked me to just call him Tasso. He is a natural with people. He made me laugh a few times throughout the visit. I felt very comfortable in his presence but more importantly I felt I could trust him. We had a lengthy conversation where he answered all my questions about the suggested operation and what to expect after the surgery. I am an avid runner and was a little disappointed to hear that I needed to take some days off. However he encouraged me to substitute my running with some light weight lifting within four days after the operation and that certainly made me feel better. On the day of my surgery , I opted to use an oral sedative. What a great decision. The whole visit flew by like a flash and I could barely remember any of it. The healing period was exactly as tassos described it would be. It wasn't the most pleasant week of my life but there were no surprises. When the glue was removed off my graft two weeks later , I was shocked to see how all of my recession had disappeared. When I saw him again a month later , he took photos and showed me the BEFORE and AFTER of my gums. It was literally a miraculous result. I am so impressed by his skills and by my new smile.

It is not uncommon to use Oral Sedation in my practice for many patients of mine. I try and relieve the tension that some patients feel and some times Oral Sedation is the answer. I'm happy this worked well for you and that you have had a positive experience in our office. I truly appreciate your time and effort in writing this review. Tasso Irinakis

My visit at this office was the most pleasant doctor visit I have ever experienced. What a surprise really. The doctor (introduces himself with his first name Tasso) welcomed me with a huge smile and answered an avalanche of questions without ever giving me the impression that he was in a hurry. My husband added his own list as well. It felt more like a casual conversation rather than a stressful dental experience. I'm actually anxious to start treatment with Tasso after this first impression. I'm sure I'll be adding a future comment as well.

I'm a colleague of Tassos actually listening to a lecture with him. Looking at the incredible results that the lecturer is showing , only confirms the caliber of Tassos as a master clinician. Tassos gives me consistently identical results. Great to see how ahead of the times you are doc.

there are few doctors in our city with the reputation Dr Irinakis has. I was referred to him by my dentist who insisted that he was the Man for the job. Job...being that I needed some implants to chew again. I am only in the beginning of the whole process but I can testify that indeed my dentist was right. Dr Irinakis and his lovely staff are a Team like no other. There is respect there and pride in the work everyone does.is it not wonderful when everyone at your dentist's office collaborates to make Your experience there worth remembering? That is how I feel after every visit. Truly!

I met Tassos over 15 years ago when he was my instructor in dentistry. It was evident -even back then- that he deeply cared for his students and his specialty. I have worked with him almost as soon as I graduated and he has consistently impressed me with the way he cares about my patients and the incredible caliber of treatment he delivers. It is not surprising he inspires patients to leave reviews about him in this site. Here I am myself doing so. Tasso is a great educator, remarkable surgeon and most humble human being. You will undoubtedly be impressed as well. Dr. M.
