With practice in family dentistry since 2003, Dr. Tatra is proud to have a reputation for helping children and adults feel comfortable at the dental clinic.
Dr. Tatra gained his Doctor in Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at UBC under the Canadian Military Dental Officers Training Program. He also has a BSc. and MSc. in Plant Molecular Physiology. Coming from a family of doctors, Dr.Tatra started his career as a medic and a health administrator. Dr. Tatra now sponsors two teaching clinics at the UBC Faculty of Dentistry and four bursaries. He’s honoured to help young dentists in their training to serve British Columbians.
Dr. Tatra comments, “I’m fortunate to have a career in dentistry. I’m lucky to wake up each day knowing I’ll give people a reason to smile. Helping people become healthier and express their natural confidence is my way of giving back. After all the years, I still look forward each day to meeting my patients and working with my amazing team of professionals. I can’t imagine doing anything else. When I’m not in the clinic, you might find me with the volunteers of the Victoria and District Dental Society. I might also be helping fundraise for various charitable events hosted by the German Auto Import Network (who we are proud sponsors for) and the David Foster Foundation, both of which benefit all the families that call Vancouver Island home.
