"The Polite Periodontist" Just had the pleasure of my second of two procedures by Dr. Irinakis and his team and within 24 hours I feel 100% as a result of his skills and thoroughness and efficiency. Dr. Irinakis is so polite he says "sorry this may be a little uncomfortable" anytime appropriate but alas no discomfort, but so nice to have him in tune the entire procedure bearing the patient in mind 100%. He is a consummate professional and I have already since my first procedure told 12 friends about him and his team. Marty P.

Another great experience at the office of Dr Irinakis. Honestly, this office has the best people in it. Dr Irinakis has placed two implants in my mouth already and I can see the writing on the wall for another one. The atmosphere is always pleasant, he sings along to the radio which takes my mind off my stress. He knows when to be funny and when to be serious. I connect with this doctor and you can’t fake that. If you are in the market for implants and don’t live too far from Courtenay, then Do yourself a favour and chat with him before making a permanent decision on your health.

I’d like to say that Dr Irinakis is a refined and personable gentleman. I’ve interacted with him on. Umeraoua occasions in our teaching facility and you can tell that he’s confident as a Periodontist and a great mentor.

I heard about Dr Irinakis through the rumour mill at my kids school by some moms who had implants from him. I checked him out online and then approached those ladies for more info. It was a weird discussion. They were talking about him like he was a rockstar. That was two years ago. Having now been to see him several times I can testify that he has the most approachable, enjoyable, compassionate and sensitive character I have met in the dental industry. None of these reviews overstate at all the experience you have in his office and with his staff. I’m just so happy that he was the one to perform my treatment. My own dentist says that after 30 years in his profession , he has never come across a colleague of the talent that Dr. Irinakis has. And in all honesty what do I know? But if his peers acknowledge his high-calibre ,that is good enough for me

Dr Irinakis is an excellent and highly qualified periodontist who is absolutely the best in his field. Highly professional in every way, he explains his findings, diagnosis and proposed treatment options clearly, as well as the pros and cons of each. He makes sure you fully understand his recommendations and assures that you feel comfortable with the proposed plan and costs of treatment. He utilizes the latest dental procedures, technology and equipment and all staff are highly trained, friendly and professional. Dr Irinakis has an enjoyable chairside manner, and always makes you feel completely comfortable and well cared for. Postop care is excellent with a written postop plan, take home care kit, pain relief options and clear follow up instructions including for emergency. The BEST hands you can be in! Wendy N

Best dental experience ever! Dr Irinakis did not try to upsell anything, told me straight up what’s going on with my mouth. No BS! I appreciate that and the fact that he never rushed our first appointment or any thereafter. His office is beautiful with Netflix TVs in every room, a coffee station and very kind staff. He’s compassionate and funny at the same time. I’ve got my implants and beautiful teeth on them. Can comfortably eat, smile and socialize without fear of embarrassment. Oh! And he gave me his cell phone to text him with any questions and he always answered immediately. Thank you Dr Irinakis for such a positive experience.

Dr Aminzadeh, Dr Irinakis and Dr Sadeghi gave the BEST surgical implant course in Dentistry ever! I have taken many hands-on courses over the last couple of decades in Canada and elsewhere. This course was by far the most entertaining, educational and interactive. Hands-on part was impressive! There was a specialist supervising each dentist surgeon one on one for the entire surgery for both of the implants that each of us placed. The facilities at UBC are state of the art and the administrative and assisting staff were helpful and a pleasure to work with. all three of these gentlemen are exceptional mentors and surgeons. All implants replaced with a computer generated surgical guide that the mentors had designed and they were all bang on. Every implant placed dead centre without the slightest mishap through the entire weekend. I’m on such a high! You can certainly tell from my writing. Again, this is the course I would recommend again and again if I wanted to learn how to place implants. Three Specialists teaming up and delivering the best their craft has to offer!

I just took an implant course from Tassos’s group on the weekend at UBC. I placed two implants under his supervision and I can comfortably state that this is the most fun I have gotten from any dental teaching engagement. As a colleague of his I would lake to let all my colleagues know that there is no implant course our there with the quality of education that is offered with Tassos. He’s simply the Best of the Best as a Periodontist and an Educator. Thank you Tassos for the experience.
