Dr. Ken Taves

Dr. Taves was raised in Vernon for most of his life.  After graduation from Kalamalka High School, he moved to Alberta to do his undergraduate degree in medical science as well as his dentistry training.  Upon graduating with his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Alberta in 2008, he moved back to his home-town of Vernon.  He joined the long-established dental practice of Dr. Loland where he has been happy to treat many familiar faces as well as new patients in the community.

Dr. Taves maintains a commitment to treat others as he would treat himself.  He is continually investing in advanced dental courses to be able to offer his patients the most current, safe, and effective treatments available.  Most recently, Dr. Taves has completed a series of advanced esthetic training courses from the California Center for Advanced Dental Studies.  Using this advanced knowledge, he can design a smile using various treatments such as veneers and crowns to dramatically improve one's smile.  In addition, Dr. Taves offers an array of dental services from first dental visits for young children to treating grandparents for optimal oral health.  Dr. Taves is enthusiastic about being able to meet the dental needs of every member of a family.

At home, his family of rambunctious children and beautiful wife keep him balanced away from the office.  Ken is excited to raise his family to enjoy the many outdoor activities on the lakes and in the mountains the beautiful Okanagan has to offer.
