Diego grew up in North Vancouver and at a young age, he realized he had a passion for helping people. While obtaining his Bachelor of Science degree from UBC, he became very active philanthropically in organizations like Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver and Muscular Dystrophy Canada. After volunteering at his family dentist's clinic, Diego decided that a career in dentistry would be an excellent way to combine his desire to care for people with his penchant for hands-on work.
He headed out East to the University of Western Ontario to complete his Dentistry degree, followed by a one-year General Practice Residency at Vancouver Coastal Health/UBC. After 2 enjoyable years of general practice in Merritt and Penticton, Diego decided to focus his skills on the area of Dentistry that intrigued him the most, Orthodontics. He returned to the University of Western Ontario and recently graduated this spring with a Master's degree in Orthodontics.
Diego, his wife, his 2 year old daughter, and their dog are thrilled to be settling down in the beautiful Okanagan, where Diego spent some time vacationing as a child. On their free time, Diego and his family love being active outdoors and are avid hikers and snowboarders/skiers.
Diego is super excited to be joining the incredible teams at MCO & PPO and can't wait to be involved in the Okanagan dental community. He looks forward to continuing to learn and stay current in all aspects of dentistry in order to provide the best possible orthodontic treatment for patients in the Okanagan valley.
