Born in Prince Edward Island, Dr. Sandy Crocker learned about caring, honest dentistry from his father who has been a dentist for over 40 years. Keeping the family tradition alive, he attended Dalhousie University for his undergraduate degree in Biology and graduated in 2005 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery.
During this time, he completed two, three month internships in Oral Maxillofacial surgery at the Vancouver General Hospital. He also completed a year long, hospital residency program at Western University in London, Ontario. His focus during this time was on sedation, surgery, pediatrics and medically compromised patients. This experience contributed to Dr. Crocker’s expertise in the area of sedation and after graduation, Dr. Crocker graduated the OHSU department of dentistry residency in conscious sedation. What that means for his patients is more targeted sedation and the ability to feel more like yourself after a procedure. He is also proud to have an active role in the College of Sedation Dentistry & American Dental Society of Anesthesiology.
He has travelled to remote locations in Costa Rica, Cuba and Canadian First Nation Communities to provide dental services to those who do not have access to them in their communities. Since moving to Kelowna, Dr. Sandy Crocker has been involved with many initiatives in the local community including providing dental services at Kelowna’s Gospel Mission Clinic and becoming a mentor for the UBC Dental Residents. Dr. Sandy is excited to bring years of experience and knowledge to his new practice with Dr. Peter Mitchell.
Furthering his education, Dr. Sandy Crocker keeps up to date with all forms of dentistry by participating in many continuing education courses. This drive to stay at the top of the dentistry field is another reason that his patients can feel assured they are receiving the highest quality of dental care.
When he isn’t in the office, Dr. Sandy Crocker can be found taking in the beautiful Okanagan landscape. Whether it is the lakes, mountains or other activities within the valley, Dr. Sandy Crocker stays active and busy.
