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.

Dear valued patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

Happy New Year to all our patients and friends of Williams Lake Smiles!

There’s just something about a new year! It represents a clean slate, a new beginning for many of us. As we finished up with 2020, we all want to believe that 2021 will bring a sort of relief from much of what the past year has brought us. 

Although there are still many restrictions and hurdles ahead of us, we are all doing our best to prove that we are resilient and focused on brighter and healthier days ahead.

The start of 2021 finds many of us evaluating our health and making plans and potential changes for the year ahead. So, as you are making some New Year’s resolutions, don’t forget to add dental care to that list!

Managing your dental health is a key factor of keeping your immune system strong to help protect you against any attack. Just as important as a good diet, rest and exercise, your dental health is something you should not ignore.

Often dental changes can happen with little to no discomfort or warning. Just as changes in the rest of your body happen, it is the same for your teeth and mouth. We all know that age, stress, hormones and busy schedules (just to name a few) sneak up on us and seem to cause changes to our bodies almost overnight. Where you used to be able to eat whatever you wanted, barely exercise and stay up all hours of the night, you might be noticing that you just can’t do that anymore! It is similar with our dental care routine. If you have been doing the same routine for what seems like forever, it might be time to evaluate and change things, even slightly, to be more effective in keeping your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime.

Our team at Williams Lake Smiles is here to help make your health a top priority. We look forward to continuing to work with you as life changes happen and want to make dental pain and emergency the smallest challenges possible.

This past year we have been working even harder to make our office a safe, welcoming place for you to visit. You may notice our policies and protocols have changed and will continue to do so based on recommendations from our professional colleges, provincial and local health authorities. Please respect these new policies and understand that some extra screening and time is required in order to achieve this. To keep things running smoothly, it is very important to complete all screening paperwork prior to all visits to our office. If the required paperwork is not completed, we may need to reschedule your appointment time.

Contact our team to schedule a dental appointment to help you be the healthiest you in 2021.

We look forward to seeing you soon,

Dr Rudy Wassenaar and the team at Williams Lake Smiles
