Welcome to Academy Dental

Academy Dental, your Victoria dentist, values our patients’ vitality, success, service, and results. We know that your smile, your health, and your appearance are essential to your overall success and emotional well-being.

Convenience and Choice

Our experts can handle all of your needs, we are constantly striving to make our services more accessible and efficient. Our patients are free to select clinical experts to suit them, while still remaining part of the Academy family.

Individualized Treatment

Almost all patients need more than one type of treatment or procedure – routine oral health management, migration to advanced restorations, cosmetic treatments, or preventative procedures. We pride ourselves on offering a full range of services, tailored to each patient, at each of our locations.

Patient-Centred

Everything we do is about our patients. Need a lift home after a procedure? We’ll arrange it. Parking? We lobbied the city of Victoria and arranged for 90 minutes of free parking in front of our dental clinic. Let us know what you need and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

Respect

We believe in dignity for everyone we come in contact with and administer all policies equitably and fairly.

Trust

We strive for mutual understanding of standards for patients' satisfaction, expectations, and communicate to reinforce that.

Compassion

We understand that everything we do is about our patients—not about us. We strive to make our services more accessible and efficient.

Happy Clients

I have never been a fan of going to the dentist, but I had such a fabulous experience with my visit. Not only is your space bright and beautiful, but your staff and the atmosphere you have created in the office is so inviting and lovely. A huge grinning smiled thank you!

The service was great, the people were extremely solicitous of my welfare, and I have already passed your name on to friends and members of my family.

I had a replacement filling done by Dr. Stakiw and it was the most pain-free, almost enjoyable experience at a dentist’s office that I can remember. Thank to everyone at Academy Dental.

I have been living in Victoria for 7 years, and I have tried several clinics! This one is really the best. First, the clinic is very clean although the building is old. The atmosphere inside is so peaceful. Then, the attention you get from the front desk, hygienist and the dentists gives so much security! Emma was my hygienist! She did an amazing job and I didn’t feel any pain!!! She is so accurate and caring! She does not surprise you! She gives you enough information before doing anything! She answers your questions. My dentist is Dr. Hassani! I believe he is very knowledgable! He tells the truth about your teeth! He DOES NOT do more than required for your teeth to get more money!!! He filled my teeth and I felt no pain and exactly no pain!!! And of course he checks on you a lot during his job to make sure you feel ok and comfortable! He is also very nice and always smiles! You won’t regret if you try this clinic!

As someone who is not a big fan of the dentist, they made the experience as comfortable as possible. Great staff and Dr. Sue was amazing. Wish there was room for a sixth star!

Dr. Hassani is hands down greatest man on Earth! I had most of my work on my teeth done with him and I had absolutely NO pain through numerous extractions/root canals/fillings/etc. The rest of the team is AMAZING, they really go above and beyond for you and make you feel welcome, they really do.I'm going to really miss seeing all the incredibly beautiful sincere woman working there, they put up with me and I wish them all nothing but the best in not only their careers but their adventures through life, Best of the Best

New Patient exam went as expected. Service is good. Location is really nice (super convenient drive or bus).Staff I interacted with were thorough, professional. I expected that though - I moved from my previous dentist so I'd keep the same hygienist & my interaction with other staff was minimal so far (hard to judge fully)

I've hard a number of unpleasant experiences at the dentist when I was younger, so I get a bit anxious when I have to the dentist, especially for fillings. I've been going to Academy Dental for the last few years and I couldn't recommend them enough. Dr. Hassani is the best and really makes me feel comfortable and at ease when I visit. All my experiences with the staff have been pleasant. Easily the most enjoyable dental experience I've had and would very highly recommend.

I've had nothing but horrible experiences with dentists before I came to academy. I first came to them because of a botched previous experience that resulted in an extraction. They dealt with my anxiety and listened to my worries, and addressed them all with a completely professional and amicable manner. I actually love going to the dentist now, because of their very precise and care filled attention. Also their lobby is so pretty! I've already recommended this dentist to my friends.

Very satisfied customer: I went in with a tooth ache, not sure which tooth due to a bridge. By the time I got in the pain had left. They took x-rays and tried the tap test on the teeth. Nothing was definitive so, I was asked to come back when I knew which tooth. No charge for today. I have been going there for years, the customer service, the equipment and the staff are all excellent. I highly recommend you give them a try

I've been going for a few years to the Fort St. location and have had an exceptional experience each time. It seems like it's a bit of a luxury to go to the dentist now because everything seems high quality about the experience from the lounge to the rooms and then the staff are very friendly.
