Dr. Maureen (Perzan) Piché, General Dentist / Owner
Dr. Maureen Piché chose a career in dentistry to bring her passion for quality, comfortable dental care to her profession.
Having grown up in smaller Canadian cities (Thunder Bay, Prince George and rural Manitoba), Dr. Piché finds her heart at home in Steveston (since 2004) enjoying the local community. After practicing at a dental clinic in Rosetown, Saskatchewan as well as Saskatoon, she is happy to be back providing dental care on the West Coast. Before establishing Harmony Dental Studio, Maureen worked as an associate dentist in White Rock and Surrey, instructed at Vancouver College of Dental Hygiene and served as a locum in an Orthodontic practice. Her educational background includes an HBSc Degree in Biology from Lakehead University and a DMD from the University of British Columbia.
Continuing educational pursuits have included:
- Implantology (MDI Denture Stabilization, implant restoration)
- Periodontics Study Club
- Cerec Restorations
- Ongoing training in cosmetic dentistry
Having provided volunteer children’s dental care in the Dominican Republic and Guatemala, Maureen is committed to providing care to underserviced populations. Current initiatives are focused on groups with little access to care here in Canada such as geriatric and First Nations populations and representing their needs to local MLAs.
Maureen was the winner of the Earl Ellison Award for Excellence in Geriatric Dentistry while attending UBC and it has remained a focus of her care since then.
As a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists Maureen attends courses that are specific to making beautiful natural smiles regularly but also participates in their Give Back a Smile (GBAS) Program. With this program, she can use her talents to restore the smiles (and confidence) of victims of domestic abuse.
Personally, Maureen lives, buys and supports the Steveston community with her husband Kirk, daughter Bryn and sons Duke and Rex. Hobbies are jogging the best trails in Richmond, frequenting the dog parks, canoeing, gardening and cooking.
