Dr. Courtney Warner (Dirven)  BSc, DMD

   I graduated from ACS, right here in Abby in 1999 and then went on to obtain a degree in biochemistry, followed by a degree in dental medicine at the University of Saskatchewan.  I met my husband Mike, from Chilliwack, in Saskatoon and there we were married and had our two beautiful daughters.  We stayed in Saskatchewan for two years while I worked as an associate in Swift Current before we returned to B.C.  For the next seven years I served the people of Lillooet B.C, a community that is dear to my heart.

However, I am so thankful to return to the community that I call home!

    I am dedicated to providing excellent technical and preventive services, and to helping my patients feel comfortable that all of their needs are addressed. To me, this means equipping my patients with the information needed to make decisions on care that is best suited for their particular concerns.  It means sound explanations and differentiating between “needed” care ( to address disease) and “wanted” care (to address cosmetic options). It means following through with planning and collaboration and gentle delivery of care.  

    At Garden Dental we have a team of long term, dedicated staff members and a loyal patient base who have, by word of mouth referrals, aided in building our practice. I am active in staying current in my field with continuing education and study clubs and in community service.  My mission is to provide patients with all their dental needs (and wants!) in a setting of comfort and trust.
