Rudy M. Wassenaar

EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, CERTIFICATION

Dr. Rudy Wassenaar graduated from the University of Amsterdam in 1981. Soon after graduating he started practicing in Amsterdam while preparing for the National Dental Examining Board of Canada’s Board Examination. In 1987 this process was successfully completed after which he emigrated to Canada.

He started his private practice in Williams Lake, BC which offered him the rural lifestyle he looked forward to. From a professional perspective, he enjoyed the challenges and opportunities a rural practice offered, and soon he realized that he needed to master more advanced techniques and procedures to better serve his patients and become a leading dentist in Williams Lake, BC.

Dental Implants

Graham

"Over the past eight years, you have replaced four of my teeth with implants. For me, the results have been excellent. I wish implant technology had been available thirty or forty years ago. Now that it is, I can unhesitatingly recommend it, even for one who is closer to eighty than seventy."

Christine

"It was the best dental experience I have ever had. Very relaxing, beautiful office (wow, that guest bathroom is amazing, complete with samples of lip balm!), nice staff members, everyone seems so relaxed – passes on a whole relaxing mood to the patient. Thanks for all you do!"

Cindy

The team handled my daughter’s anxiety beautifully. The team worked with the hiccup in the schedule with ease. The new hygienist is very friendly and thorough, and clearly is loving her job. She has successfully scared me into taking better care of my teeth Thanks.

Before And After

Patients who seek dental treatments can look forward to gaining self-confidence and a sense of well-being from looking, feeling and functioning at their best.

Covid-19 (Corona) Virus

Dear valued patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

We hope this finds all our patients and friends healthy and well as summer is supposed to be arriving! Fingers crossed that we will see some sunshine in the Cariboo soon!

Our clinic staff have been working hard through this "new normal" of COVID-19 and ensuring that our clinic is exceeding the regulations to create the most safe and comfortable environment for all our patients. In the field of dentistry, we have always been experts in infection control. Now we are establishing a modified workflow to go above and beyond in this endeavor.

We are starting to resume some scheduling of more routine procedures as well as emergency care at this time. Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions about our current protocols or would like to schedule care.

Please respect our measures we are taking to ensure physical distancing within our office. This includes completing the COVID-19 prescreening form that is emailed to you before each appointment. We are also continuing to limit our waiting room to one person at a time and having patients complete payments and scheduling in their treatment room before exiting through the side door. This allows us to prevent interaction between patients whenever possible.

You may also find that we are slightly less flexible in our available appointment times for now as we are managing these new measures. We need to consider the amount of patients within our clinic at any time as well as stagger our patient entry and exit times.

Please be patient and kind as we all adjust to this protocol that is in place for the safety of all of us.

Take a few minutes to watch and share our latest instalment of Dr Wassenaar's appearance on the television program "The Wellness Hour". This interview outlines a lot of what we are doing to make sure that our patients have the utmost confidence and comfort in visiting Williams Lake Smiles at all times.

Our first TV interview has enjoyed 860,000 views with world-wide sharing. We would love to hear your feedback.

We look forward to seeing you in our office soon.

Sincerely,

Dr Rudy Wassenaar

Dr Sophia Dahai

And all the Williams Lake Smiles team
