Some people are surprised to learn that dentists look at more than just teeth and gums. We are also looking at function and for diseases affecting the soft tissues and structures within the upper and lower jaws. Sometimes, the conditions people suffer from are complex enough to need specialized care. For those patients, we have a new team member.
WRDG has recruited specialist associate, Dr. Yoko Tsukada. She is a dual certified specialist in oral medicine and oral pathology, and is the only one currently registered in South Surrey and White Rock.
In addition to private practice, Dr. Tsukada is a clinical assistant professor at the UBC Faculty of Dentistry, a specialist staff member at Vancouver General Hospital, and a staff member at the BC Cancer Agency in the Oral Oncology outpatient clinic and the Leukemia/Bone Marrow Transplant program.
