Message from Smile Well Dental

Smile Well Dental team is very happy to introduce ourselves to patients in Greater Vancouver Area. We have provided comprehensive treatments from prevention to full-mouth rehabilitation in a professional and patient-oriented manner.

Our Principal Doctor

Dr. Sangmin Shin has a variety of work and educational experience. He was born in Busan, South Korea, and studied Physics at Seoul National University, the top university in the country and received a degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D), and afterwards led a research team in Samsung Electronics department. As a physicist and an engineer, he acquired high level of scientific knowledge which, in turn, supplemented his knowledge and professionalism for his new degree in dentistry (DDS, Doctor of Dental Surgery) attained from the Seoul National University.

Thanks to his unique double-degree background, he is able to provide service to his patients in evidence-based and scientifically-proven manner. Furthermore, he has dedicated his energy to more predictable, reproducible, and comfortable treatment outcomes for his patients.

Although our primary goal is to protect patients’ natural teeth, we proudly offer affordable implants for patients who have no other choice. Due to Dr. Shin’s experience of having done more than 2,000 dental implants so far, he recognizes all variables necessary for success in implants and has become confident in providing a safe and predictable implant. He is also a clinical advisor of HiOssen implant company. Dr. Shin’s motto on implants is “Safe and Economical(SAFECO)” implant.

On the other hand, he is also focusing on less invasive treatments on tooth cavities and gum diseases, and is researching some technological innovations in this field. Currently he collaborates with KAIST, the top engineering university in South Korea, to develop several dental devices which give more comfort and less pain to patients during treatments.

In addition, Dr. Shin graciously shares his expertise by volunteering to those people who are less fortunate. He visits the Philippines once every year to provide a free dental care. He recognizes his duty to repay the global society for providing him with many opportunities: receiving higher education, and developing his professional reputation in multiple countries.

Dr. Shin is a member of the Canadian Dental Association and an organizer of Maple Study Club, where his BC colleagues discuss in-depth knowledge and feasibility of comprehensive periodontics, prosthodontics, implantology, and orthodontics treatments. He is also continuously taking education in all phases of dentistry.

Dr. Shin lives in Lynn Valley, North Vancouver with his wife, Jasmine, and their three sons. Jasmine was a medical doctor in Korea and is now a medical esthetician in Canada.
