About Our Downtown Vancouver Dentists
Dr. Ken Phillips
Dr. Ken Phillips is the owner, and principle dentist, at Royal Centre Dental Group. Originally from Montreal, he graduated from Dalhousie Dental School in 1987, eventually moving west. He founded the Royal Centre practice in 1990. Now, when he’s not cycling the highways and byways of the province, or studying the latest developments in dentistry, he can be found here in Vancouver working Monday-Thursday with his long time staff.
Dr. Phillips has taken a particular interest in aesthetic and laser dentistry over the years, taking advanced training courses in a variety of areas. He has been mentored by oral surgeon Dr. Ken Blankstein, and now performs most of his own surgical extractions. So that he can meet the growing needs of his patient/clients, Dr. Phillips now has three hygienists on staff and has taken on an associate, who performs some of the procedures he, himself doesn’t, including Invisalign.
Dr. Ryan Bernhauser
Dr. Ryan Bernhauser is a 2004 Saskatchewan dental graduate, who didn’t hesitate when the opportunity to practice away from the cold and snow arose. Dr. Bernhauser has chosen to advance his skills in the area of endodontics (root canals), laser dentistry and orthodontics/ Invisalign®. While maintaining his own clients at Royal Centre Dental Group, he also provides these services for Dr. Phillips’ clients as well.
Together, with their hygienists, doctors Phillips and Bernhauser work as a team seeing clients Monday thru Saturday. They look forward to working with you to provide the treatment and information you need to keep you smiling and healthy. They are both happy to accept the referral of your friends, family and colleagues – your trust is our greatest compliment. Thank you for considering us to be your dentist in downtown Vancouver, BC!
