Evident Care Dental was established in October 2004 and has steadily grown over our many years of operation. Led by Dr. Derhami, our Maple Ridge family dentistry is designed and modelled after modern European offices. This design allows for maximum transparency for patients to see our team at work and to create a welcoming and relaxing environment.
We Actively Engage Patients
The open sterilization area allows patients to view our infection control procedures. We also equip each dental unit with a computer-TV monitor so both patients and staff can view X-rays and charts. In addition to entertainment, this helps to actively engage you in the decision-making processes.
Proud Supporters of the Maple Ridge Community
Since our founding, Evident Care Dental has done its best to support our community by donating hundreds of dollars to our local hospitals and schools. Our office is located one block east of downtown Maple Ridge in a strip mall with ample free parking. There is also a walk-in medical clinic (Meadow Ridge Care Clinic), a restaurant (Frogstone Grill) a pharmacy (The Chemist) and a hair salon in the mall.
Dr. Derhami and his family have resided in Maple Ridge since 2004. He is an experienced dentist with many years of practice in a variety of clinical settings including a private family dentistry, emergency hospital clinic and community health centres around the globe. He was a part-time instructor at both the University of Alberta and the University of British Columbia.
Dr. Derhami has been in practice since 1991. He received his dental degree from The Royal Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. He earned a Master of Science degree in oral biology and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in medical and oral health sciences from the University of Alberta. Dr. Derhami was also a fellow at the Centre of Head and Neck Reconstruction (COMPRU) in Edmonton. He has conducted research in dental biomaterials and has numerous publications in various respected scientific and clinical journals.
“My greatest achievement is my family, my wife and children. Second to them, I am extremely proud of Evident Care Dental. The staff and I make every small detail a priority so that our clients may have a positive experience of our services and we can feel proud as a team.”
