Alberni Valley Dental welcomes Dr. Oleg Beregovoy to the team.

Odessa to Alberni: All roads lead to the Valley for dentist

Family vacation leads to a boost for the Valley’s dental care

A chance family visit to Vancouver Island has brought the Alberni Valley its newest dentist.

Dr. Oleg Beregovoy was living and practicing in Airdrie, AB, outside Calgary, when a family visit to Vancouver Island piqued their interest in a move.

Fast-forward to this fall, and Dr. Oleg joined the Alberni Valley Dental team as he and wife Oksana, a legal assistant, settle in to the Valley with sons Valentine, 14, and Daniel, 5.

The road to the Alberni Valley

Born in Odessa, Ukraine, Dr. Oleg trained at the Odessa State Medical University, followed by a two-year clinical residency at the Institute of Dentistry of the Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine, where training included both orthodontics and general dentistry.

After moving to Canada in 2008 and pursuing the advancement placement program at the University of Alberta, Dr. Oleg received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and license for General Dentistry and began practicing in Airdrie.

During a family vacation to the Island, the Beregovoys were taken with the setting, the mild climate and the welcoming communities. Port Alberni – and Alberni Valley Dental – was the perfect fit for the active family.

Dr. Oleg’s son Val is an avid hockey player and is currently playing on the Port Alberni Bantam Rep Team.

Experience + knowledge are key

At Alberni Valley Dental, Dr. Oleg joins registered dental hygienists Tasha Sutton and Chelsea Penny, Certified Dental Assistant April Davidson, dental assistant Carly Lynch and the office team of Donna Reynolds and Christina Tewinkel.

“The team is so knowledgeable and they just love the work they’re doing,” he says. “It’s very rewarding to be working with them.”

The group has recently come together, donating their time, to support the Bantam Rep Team, providing them with custom mouth guards for the season.

Dr. Oleg looks forward to supporting Port Alberni’s dental care, providing a full range of family dental services, including dental emergencies, restorations, wisdom teeth extraction, one-appointment crowns and bridges, dental implants, periodontics and endodontics.

The team also offers a comprehensive hygiene program, cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, guards and bite appliances. With an emphasis on patient comfort, oral sedation dentistry is also available.
