About us



Our Kitsilano practice was founded in the early 1970’s by Dr. Ed Fukushima. Dr. Wayne Okamura, an honorable alumni of the University of Manitoba, began working with Dr. Fukushima in 1990. Wayne’s team continues the tradition of making excellent patient care our priority.

Dr. Wayne Okamura graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1988. Upon graduation he was accepted into the Winnipeg Health Science Centre residency program.

Dr. Ed Fukushima focused on providing excellent care for his patients and the current team continues that tradition of making patient care our priority.

Our team now consists of 5 qualified dentists who are well loved by all their patients; Dr. Kristin Lee, Dr. Heather O’Keefe, Dr. Clifford Pau, Dr. Stephen Yoon and Dr. Tomoko Kusunose. We are always here to help you!
The ability to help our patients is what inspires our entire office. We want to help our patients receive the best possible care for their oral health. We promise to treat our patients with compassion and empathy.

We combine our extensive record of practical experience with an equal focus on customer service approach. Our clients love us so much that our clinic operates solely on referral customers.

We look forward to you becoming one of them as well!
