Health Provider for Dentist | Stephen Michaluk


About Me


I'm Steve Michaluk, and as a general practice dentist on Vancouver Island, I'm excited to assist the people of Crofton and the neighbouring communities!

We are happy to have the chance to live, work, and play on the West Coast after giving it a lot of thought and deliberation to pick up our lives and move to Vancouver Island! not to mention in such a beautiful place as Osborne Bay. We enjoy being outside as much as possible, walking, riding, jogging, kiteboarding and adventuring.

The eradication or reduction of disease processes like tooth decay and inflammatory illnesses like gingivitis and periodontitis are my top priorities for oral health as a dentist. But, if a client has lost teeth, our attention may turn to maintaining or improving the functionality of the remaining teeth, as well as replacing those missing teeth. Keep in mind that every tooth in your mouth serves a specific purpose and that missing teeth put the health of the remaining teeth at risk. Having missing teeth or none at all can impact the digestive system in different ways, eventually affecting your general health, whether psychological or physical. When having my teeth cleaned, I'll consider all of these significant dental and oral health factors.

Generally, aesthetic considerations play a significant role in all treatments, from straightforward fillings to more involved procedures like denture manufacture or implant-supported tooth replacements. To maintain and improve the teeth and supporting tissues, I want to reassure our clients that everything we do will always aim to make the teeth and gums look fantastic.

I chose to become a dentist because I enjoy eating, speaking, laughing, and smiling. Let me know if you're not getting the most out of what your teeth can do for you, whether it's enjoying the delicious things you love to eat or shining brightly or if you have an ache or pain that has just started or a lingering pain that won't go away. It's fantastic if you already have a beautiful smile. I'd like to have the chance to assist you in maintaining it that way!
