Jake Wuerch, DMD

Meet Dr. Wuerch

Jake was born and raised in the small town of Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. Jake received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology at Vancouver Island University and went on to receive his Doctor of Dental Medicine at the University of British Columbia. After graduating dental school, Jake made the move to Central Alberta where he worked as a dentist for three years. Jake is happy to be practicing in North Vancouver with our team where he is closer to family and can enjoy all that the north shore has to offer.

Jake has wanted to be a dentist since he was young and is passionate about all aspects of general dentistry. He performs a wide range of clinical procedures, but often focuses on cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, endodontics, and loves working with kids. You’ll often hear Jake laughing with his patients and staff, and his favourite part of his job is creating meaningful and trusting relationships. Jake’s passion for dentistry is evident in the multiple awards he received upon his graduation from the UBC Faculty of Dentistry.            

When Jake is not at the office you might see him out on the soccer field, golfing, snowboarding, and learning to play tennis (if you have any tips, please let him know!). Jake believes going to the dentist doesn’t have to be a negative experience and believes in a collaborative approach to patient centered care. Most importantly, Jake and Mike share the same values and philosophy by always striving for excellence in providing quality care, and that proper dental health is an integral part of overall health and wellbeing.
