Student Dental Care, and More
On a tight student budget?
No problem! Healthy Smile is a member of the Student Dental Network , which means registered students do not need to pay for their co-payments as it is covered by your student medical insurance plan.
Azita and Soheil met in 1990 while watching a fireworks display in Tehran, Iran, and they’ve been spreading sparkle and shine ever since! The couple moved to Canada in 1998 and have two teenage children. They decided to start their own business when they saw a need: young college and university students in BC are too busy to take care of their oral health, but want to have healthy, beautiful smiles. Healthy Smile is here to help!
Healthy Smile was founded in 2009 by Soheil Iravani and Azita Haririan, when they began offering dental hygiene services at BCIT and SFU.
Since then they have expanded to many other college and university campuses in the lower mainland, where they offer friendly and convenient dental services for students and staff. Click HERE for the full list of current locations!
