We Build Beautiful Smiles
All Day, Every Day

Because a Great Smile is Worth Singing About

For 20 remarkable years, Bel Canto Dental has been passionate about providing high quality, holistic dental health to residents of West Vancouver, North Vancouver and surrounding areas.

Dr. Mackie has designed this remarkable clinic around an “operatic” theme. The name “Bel Canto” is Italian for “beautiful singing.” The West Vancouver dental clinic is very artsy, colorful and unique, with a wonderful support team of staff.

With a 30-year background as a dentist, Dr Mackie has a passion for opera and music he visits the opera houses around the world as he travels enjoying operas around the globe. His goal is to have patients visit the office for their North Shore dental treatments and not feel like they are going to the dentist. Most people fear the dentist and he has taken that out of the equation. People love to come visit us!

We don’t smell like a typical dental office either. We have aromatherapy going all day long so that you aren’t exposed to the usual chemical smells people often associate with dental clinics.

We are more holistic in our approach. For example, we don’t give flouride treatments. We want patients to be as healthy as possible in every aspect of their care.

Hi Tech Office

“I am such a chicken when it comes to needles! Dr. Mackie is so gentle I never feel anything. I love how there are no TV’s on the ceiling and Dr. Mackie engages and talks you thru the whole appointment. It’s a super high-tech office, with digital x-rays, cameras that take pictures of your teeth and last time I got the laser too!” — A.B.

Great for Families

“Every time I come to the office I hear children laughing and having a great time, it warms my heart that they are enjoying their dental visits at such an early age, I have not seen one nervous child at this location this is where I recommend families to come” —J.T.
