I just wanted to know if anyone in this forum can give me their opinion on what it's like to practice dentistry in the Vancouver Island area. I have heard that there are more privately insured patients out on the West Coast than the East Coast.

I have never visited Vancouver but I am definitely looking into doing so within the next year or so as I have a girlfriend who lives out West in Alberta,has visited Vancouver many times and has been prodding me to visit as well...especially Gastown.

I'm presently unsure about where I want to "settle" and am looking into possibilities in other cities.

Visit Richmond while you are in Vancouver and have some sushi buffet. Afterwards a mango-papaya Bubble tea to go. :thumbup:
