Dunbar Dental Centre has been serving the Dunbar community for almost 30 years! Dr. Anna Pranata joined the practice in 2015 and has continued serving the community in the same spirit and with the same compassion as her predecessors. She has surrounded herself with a team that just like herself, cares for their patients as if they were family.
“To be passionate about dentistry and enjoy the relationships we form with our team members and our patients. To cultivate a culture of respect, kindness and collaboration so that we may provide the best dental care for our valued patients.”
Multiple factors affect an individual’s position on the continuum between healthy and unhealthy and it has been proven that oral health and overall health are strongly intertwined. We believe one of our most important jobs is to educate our patients because with education comes prevention and this is better than any crown, root canal or implant out there. We hope to empower our patients so that they may have some control over their oral health and that this may have a positive effect on their overall health. The mouth is a biological system and despite one’s best efforts, cavities, trauma and periodontal disease happen. With this in mind, our patients can expect up to date comprehensive dental care and clinical excellence with our dedicated team.
Dr. Pranata has participated in Dental Missions to provide dental care in places where it is not so accessible. She has travelled to Guatemala several times and has found her experience rewarding and is always shocked to see that people who have so little can be so generous and full of joy. Poverty and need can also be seen in our own city. At the East Side Dental Clinic, Dr. Pranata has had the opportunity to meet and treat individuals who suffer from substance use disorder or who simply need a bit of extra help.
