About Dr. Matthew Foulkes
Dr. Foulkes moved to the Island in 2016 when he started working at our office. Prior to that, he and his family were living in Coquitlam BC, not far from Burnaby where he grew up. The Island has always held a special place for Dr. Foulkes as he spent most of his summers on Saturna Island, away from the big city. On the way to getting his DDS from the University of Western Ontario, he volunteered at various biology and educational programs in the lower mainland and completed a degree in animal biology at UBC. Now his growing family is settled in the greater Victoria area and look forward to growing roots here.
I was doing a biology degree and didn’t want to be a doctor. I liked working with my hands, and dentistry seemed to pull everything together.
