Meet J. Cameron Garrett DMD
Dr. J. Cameron Garrett was born and raised in Kamloops, BC on a small hobby farm. He grew up playing lots of sports and volunteering with a number of organizations. Due to his interest in the outdoors and adventure, he became a forest firefighter in the summer for 11 years. In the winter, he worked in welding and carpentry.
Alongside his many careers, Dr. Garrett pursued a degree at Thompson Rivers University, and it was here that he discovered dentistry. He looked into it deeper and realized it had all the components of a career he desired. He loved working with his hands and enjoyed the idea of helping people. Although Dr. Garrett considered being a medical doctor, it was the ability to combine his unique skillsets that attracted him to dentistry.
He then attended dental school at UBC, and after graduating, he worked as an associate dentist in Tsawwassen, Surrey, and Langley, BC. He then found a mentor in Dr. Steven Hill and has enjoyed working at our practice ever since. Together, they continue to help patients make positive changes and highlight the connection between oral health and overall health.
‘‘It doesn't matter what your previous experience was in other offices. We are different than them. We understand that we are in a unique position of trust and take that very seriously. We take the time to explain what treatment is required while showing you with photos or x-rays. When it comes time to perform the treatment, we will not impose anything upon you, but rather make sure you are in control 100%. You must be entirely willing to move forward with treatment or we don't do it.”
It had been years since I had visited a dentist because of a traumatic experience. I am so grateful I made the choice to see Dr. Garrett and the team at the Oral Health Solutions Dental group. They are kind, patient, friendly, knowledgeable, and, most importantly, they made me feel safe and cared for. I highly recommend their services for anyone of all ages. My kids also see Dr. Garrett and love him. This is truly a wonderful office that values trust, honesty, and people.
