Dr. Ron Melnyk
Dr. Ron Melnyk, General Dentist, graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1979. He practiced for seven years in Midland, Ontario after which he relocated to Vancouver. He recalls this as a significant memory for his family as it was the summer of Expo ’86. In November that year he began working at Coast Dental Centre, and by March 1987, he had purchased the practice.
Dr. Melnyk has always focused on having a family practice and staying on the leading edge of technological advances in dentistry. Coast Dental Centre was one of the first offices in Canada to become truly “paperless”. The practice has also remained current with advances in laser-assisted dentistry, digital radiography, and most recently Itero digital impressions for crowns and bridges and Periowave to treat and maintain many gum diseases that would otherwise need more costly treatment with a specialist.
Dr. Melnyk has continued his education and development as a professional dentist in temporomandibular joint disfunction(TMJ) and orthodontics. He has offered full orthodontic treatment to his patients since 1987, and has completed over 1500 cases. He continues to attend F.O.R.C.E. study group sessions to maintain and advance his knowledge in orthodontics. Cosmetic dentistry is also a major interest for Dr. Melnyk, and he has taken measures to stay current in advances to material and technique. For all intents and purposes, Coast Dental is “metal-free,” no longer using amalgam fillings and making crowns and bridges without the use of metal. He is also very competent in root canal therapy, having completed over 10,000 cases in his long career. Employing the latest in rotary technology for root canal treatment, the result is more predictable and faster than previously applied technology.
First and foremost, Dr. Melnyk is very proud of his accomplished staff. His administration staff has been with him for 15 to 20 years, and his assistants for over 20 years. That’s loyalty!
He looks forward to serving your dental needs.

About The Willow Dental Care Network
Willow Dental Care has been around for close to 20 years (but with combined dental experience of almost 100 years).
Each Willow Dental Care office is staffed with highly trained and up to date dentists. But what Willow Dental Care is really proud of is our training in client service. We understand that going to the dentist isn’t the most enjoyable activity on your to do list. But our staff is trained to make the experience as calm and relaxing as possible. How about an office that truly listens to your past experiences or how sensitive your teeth really are? Imagine someone who understands that you can’t stand something in your mouth or that you just don’t freeze well. Whether you simply just don’t enjoy going to the dentist, or you truly fear the experience, Willow Dental Care has got your back.
Willow Dental Care offers free telephone consultations, so that you will be fully prepared as what to expect when you come in for an appointment. If your fear, or your child’s fear is overwhelming, all our offices are fully certified and trained in Conscious Sedation with pre and post appointment support.
As general dental offices that offer all the range of family and cosmetic services having a happy safe environment is always a better choice. This is good news for high fear patients but also good news for everyone in the family.
Now you can chose a Willow Dental Care office in Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Langley, Vancouver or Westend Vancouver.
