Dr. Salima Dadani
President & Director of Clinical Care

For Dr. Salima Dadani, the best part of having been a dentist was being able to help improve her patients’ health, self-esteem, and wellbeing. A native of Vancouver, Salima attended the University of British Columbia where she received her BSc in Human Nutrition and Dietetics. She then attended the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston where she received her DMD degree (Doctor of Medical Dentistry). In addition, she has taken extensive courses in Dental Practice Management from the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia. As former owner and principal dentist of a successful practice in North Vancouver, Salima focused her efforts on providing family dental care, including general, aesthetic, and preventative treatments. She prided herself in nurturing long lasting, patient relationships that end with healthy smiles. Salima is now broadening her focus towards addressing patient populations that traditionally do not have access to oral care. She is dedicated to the newest advancements in dentistry and proactively keeps up-to-date with the latest technologies. Importantly, Salima works with Silver Valet Dental Care's team of dental professionals to offer the best possible long term, whole body health. Salima is a standing member of the Canadian Dental Association, the British Columbia Dental Association and a non-practising registrant of the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia.
