Dr. Dave Burwash.
I was born in London England to parents wise enough to emigrate to Canada early in my life. Originally we moved to Vancouver where my father was offered a position at the UBC Faculty of Dentistry but quickly moved to Winnipeg where my father worked at the Health Sciences Center Dental Department. My parents were shocked to find that the career advisor had lied about the warmer climate and better alpine activities in Winnipeg. Having spent formative time in BC. as a child I counted the days until I could return.
Upon completion of my Dental degree and a one year Hospital internship at the Health Sciences Center my Partner Sherri and I loaded up the car and moved to Fernie. For those who haven't met Sherri you should simply know that Everything I have in this life I owe to the love of that amazing woman. Sherri is my rock, she is my inspiration and my love.
The plan in 2001 was to work in Fernie part-time and in Cranbrook part-time. Well it's true, if you want to make God laugh just tell him your plans... Those plans quickly came to an end when the decision was made to purchase Baker Hill Dental and since 2002 I have devoted my time almost exclusively to Cranbrook. I say almost because from time to time, in addition to the charitable work we perform in Cranbrook, we provide dental care to third world countries and I volunteer teaching at the University of Saskatchewan.
I credit my parents with providing a strong moral upbringing for me. I try to integrate their teachings into all of my interactions. The eight years I had the pleasure of working with my father are the greatest gift this life has given me so far. Despite my father's passing in 2009 his presence will always be felt in Baker Hill Dental and I will continue to strive to be worthy of his name. My approach is simple, treat everyone how I would hope to be treated and always remember that my dad is looking down on me knowing I will do the right thing.
I look forward to meeting you and hearing about your life.
