Dr. Jocelyn Shih, DMD
Dr. Jocelyn Shih (sh-ee) is a calm and caring dentist, who is sensitive to her patients' needs, and truly listens to their concerns. Dr. Shih started developing her fine motor skills at an early age due to her interest in art/craft, and is now grateful for a surgical career that combines medicine and the aesthetic.
Dr. Shih is an affiliate associate fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. In order to provide her patients with the most up-to-date treatment options, she pursues post-graduate education at global institutes such as the Kois Center in Seattle and the NYU College of Dentistry.
Dr. Shih enjoys all aspects of dentistry, including implantology, orthodontics, endodontics, and complex full mouth cosmetic restorations. For patients wanting to straighten their teeth under a doctor's supervision, she is also an Invisalign® provider.
Still, Dr. Shih retains a soft spot for working with kids. At BC Children's Hospital, she has contributed to published research, and has assisted with restorative treatment and patient management in the OR. Locally she has been granted privileges at Fort St John Hospital to perform procedures on eligible patients under general anesthesia, who would otherwise need to travel out-of-town to be seen by a specialist office.
