Having spent the previous 26 years at his own practice in Quesnel, BC, he now resides in beautiful Qualicum Beach BC with his wife.They have 2 adult daughters and 2 grandsons from their eldest daughter, residing in Nanaimo, BC. He enjoys surfing, skiing, motorcycles, airplanes, hunting, fishing and occasionally sampling IPA craft beers and varieties of Scotch. He and his wife are most passionate about their grandsons and getting the family together.
Dr. Wood observes dental habits and their effects on the oral health of his patients. He regularly counsels patients in identifying and changing oral habits from clenching or grinding to suggestions on more positive dental snacks. Cavities are preventable and he is committed to sharing many ideas on how to do just that!
