Dr. James McKenzieDr. James McKenzie, General Dentist, has the goal of earning your trust and confidence. He wants you to know about his past and current accomplishments and his continuing efforts to deliver his best to you. His focus is to deliver the highest quality of dentistry with the best customer service to Whistler and beyond. He has a passion for dentistry and he expresses his desire to achieve excellence in all his work.

He not only takes pride in routine dental treatments, but he takes special interest in the relationship between the mouth and the rest of the body. It is now well known that many systemic medical problems have origins in the mouth. The particular fields of “Neuromuscular Dentistry” and now “Optimal Dental Physiology” integrate the teeth and mouth into the body as the most important determinate of the AIRWAY.

Once the Dentist’s outlook is expanded beyond just the teeth, it becomes readily apparent how critical the teeth are to the health of the airway, and how important the airway is to the health of the teeth!

Dr. McKenzie established Whistler Dental in 1993. Prior to his arrival in Whistler, he practiced dentistry with the UN and NATO in Europe as a member of the Canadian Armed forces. He is a firm believer in continuing education and routinely takes 3-4 times the required continued education hours per year. These courses allow him to continuously provide his patients with the latest techniques to keep their mouths healthy and beautiful. Dr. McKenzie has many patients who travel from all over the world seeking his services for these exact reasons.
