Dr. Jason Dinglasan

Jason is known for his gentle care and a down-to-earth practical style while being at the forefront of the latest knowledge and dental technology. Dr. Jason is a graduate of the University of British Columbia, achieving his Doctorate of Medical Dentistry in 2002. He practiced dentistry in Lillooet, BC for 2 years before moving to Calgary, AB for a year.  

In 2007, his love of the West Coast brought him back to join his brother, Dr. Keith Dinglasan, in Maple Ridge. Dr. Jason also completed an advanced program in orthodontics from the Faculty of Orthodontic Research and Continuing Education in 2009 and is a certified Invisalign provider.

In his free time, Jason enjoys a variety of activities, including playing bass guitar and hiking.  He also snowboards and plays defense on a recreational hockey league – and assures us he always wears his mouth guard.

Dr. Jorell Valdes

After graduating from the University of British Columbia in 2012, Dr. V spent several years practicing in Grande Prairie, Alberta.  Our search for just the right associate - one with an easy-going personality as well as great clinical skills - coincided with Jorell's desire to return to this area, and we were excited to have him join our team in September, 2015. He immediately had a great rapport with patients of all ages and after several years, as the practice grew, he had the opportunity to become a partner in the company.  We’re happy to have him in this ongoing role in the practice!

When he's not working, Jorell likes a plethora of activities including cooking, photography, and challenging the slopes in any season, hiking or snowboarding.  He favours Earnest Ice Cream's Maple Walnut,  and always enjoys the company and conversation with good friends.  Jorell has been a Canucks fan for as long as he can remember, and says that was a daunting proposition while living in northern Alberta - one more good reason to be back in the greater Vancouver area!

Marilyn, our office manager, is a CDA with several decades of experience as a dental receptionist. She and her husband love biking vacations and long walks, and seldom miss an episode of the Amazing Race. Some of Marilyn’s favorite people are children, and she’s the proud Nana of a growing brood.

Kelsey graduated as a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) in 2012, and after some time sharing her duties between the clinic and the desk, she is happy to be assisting full time. Kelsey loves all things “country”: music, horseback riding, and volunteering at Timberline Ranch, but is diversified enough to be part of a dragon-boating team.

Denise has been a Certified Dental Assistant since the early 1990’s and works full-time.  Somehow, she still manages to schedule all of the other things she loves, like cooking, canning, yoga, and managing a soccer team.  Denise enjoys people, and patients and staff alike, appreciate her friendly disposition.

mmd-bio_Tarrah.png

Tarrah is an out-going, caring hygienist, a busy mom, and athlete. She loves to encourage, whether you are in her chair and she’s coaching on good oral hygiene techniques or if you happen to be in the cross-fit box where she trains regularly for competitions around BC. To relax, Tarrah loves to read, hike, hang out with her kids or take a ride on her Harley.

Her calm demeanor and efficiency are such a great addition to our front desk team!
