Meet The Specialist

Skill and compassion go hand in hand when providing exceptional patient care. As a Registered Denturist I stay up to date on the latest advancements in dentistry in order to provide the most current treatment options for my patients.  I recognize that my patients are unique individuals who have placed a great deal of trust in me and my team. That is just one reason why I value each and every patient relationship.

Stepen Aiken

Registered Denturist

My name is Steve Aiken.  I have lived on the Island since 1991 and over 60 years in BC.  I am married with four grown children scattered between Victoria and Cold Lake, Alberta.  My wife Denise, was my high school sweetheart and is an accountant with her own CGA/CPA firm in Parksville.  Together we have six grandchildren between the ages of 3 and 15.

I attended Okanagan College in Kelowna for two years after graduating high school in 1973.  I studied art history, colour theory, drawing , painting and sculpture. I graduated with a diploma in fine arts.
I decided to be a denturist at the suggestion of my wife and a friend of hers who was a dentist. In 1989 I attended Vancouver Community College in Vancouver and graduated from the denturist program in 1991. That year I moved to Nanaimo, where I worked for a local denturist. In 1995 I opened my first clinic in Nanaimo and later a second clinic in Parksville. The clinic in Nanaimo is closed but the clinic in Parksville is doing well. I have also taught denturism back in Vancouver at VCC and served as an executive board member of the Denturist Association of British Columbia.

I continue to produce small commissioned works of art for private collectors. The sculptures all look like dentures. I would enjoy sculpting you a new, unique lifelike smile that both of us can be proud of. Call the Parksville office to book a complimentary, friendly initial consultation, they only take minutes and there is no obligation. 1-250-586-0443.   You will be warmly welcomed, the coffee is always on.
My hobbies include karaoke and occasionally singing in my church choir.
