The Dr. John Bjornson Dentistry Team


From routine cleanings and esthetic fillings to bruxism devices, the office of Dr. John Bjornson is equipped to handle all your dental needs. To help you understand your options, we’ve included descriptions of some of our leading services on this page.

Scaling and Root Planing.

Scaling and root planing, also known as conventional periodontal therapy, non-surgical periodontal therapy, or deep cleaning, is a procedure involving removal of dental plaque and calculus and then smoothing, or planing, of the surfaces of the roots, removing cementum or dentine that is impregnated with calculus, toxins, or microorganisms, the etiologic agents that cause inflammation.

Cosmetic Whitening

A safe and effective way to brighten your smile! We will take a mold of your teeth and then have two thin, flexible plastic mouth trays custom-made for you — one for the top teeth and one for the bottom. You will fill the trays with whitening gel and then position the trays over your teeth. The trays are left in usually for about an hour at a time.


Dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth — usually the back teeth (the premolars and molars) — to prevent tooth decay. The sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very thin shells that are attached to the front part of teeth. They are often made of porcelain. Porcelain veneers are stronger than composite resin veneers and do not change colour or stain.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a treatment required when there is an inflammation or infection of the living tissues inside the tooth, either in the pulp chamber and the root canals (pulpitis), or the tooth is badly damaged.

CEREC all ceramic dental restorations

The CEREC system has revolutionized the dental field by meeting the needs of our patients in a more convenient manner. Gone are the days where the patient must return for multiple visits to complete a restoration. CEREC Technology can design, fabricate and place a ceramic restoration in just one visit!

Crowns and Bridges

Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth. Bridges are commonly used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth. They are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood.


Invisalign aligners are the clear alternative to metal braces for adults and teens. These clear aligners are the virtually invisible way to improve your smile.


A dental extraction is the removal of teeth from the dental socket in the alveolar bone. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which have become unrestorable through tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma, especially when they are associated with toothache.


Bonding, also known as bonded restoration, is a painless way to make minor repairs to teeth. In most cases, several teeth can be bonded in one dental visit. Bonding uses tooth-coloured material, called composite resin. Composite resin is put on the tooth, then shaped and hardened with light.


A bone graft is the addition of bone, or bone-like material, in an effort to increase the volume of bone in the jaw. Typically, the bone is placed and heals before the implant can be placed. The healing period can vary, depending on the type of bone used.

Implant Surgery and Restoration

Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are inserted into your jawbone during a minor surgical procedure that takes place in the dental office. After the implant has been placed in your jawbone, a completely lifelike porcelain tooth crown is attached.

John Bjornson, BSc, DMD also known as “Dr. John” graduated from The University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Dentistry in 1996. The initial years of his practice were focused on the provision of emergency dental services in the community of Greater Victoria. Dedicated to a course of continued study he grew to perfect his restorative dental expertise and chose to focus on the establishment of his current family practice. Dr. John and his team are committed to the provision of premier care incorporating every aspect of contemporary dental technology.

Personally from Dr. John

Dentistry historically has been based on a “repair model”, replacing fillings, filling holes or replacing missing teeth. The goal of my relationship with the patients in our practice is to enable them to benefit from a level of oral heath that will rely as minimally as possible on the “repair model” of care.

My contemporary practice philosophy is based on a “health model” of care. This model is designed to predict disease before it even happens or is expressed, thereby ensuring the continuity of your oral health throughout your lifetime.

Everyone brings with them a unique set of variables that contribute to their level of susceptibility to oral disease. We know now through current medical research that disease processes in the mouth have a significant relationship to several very important systems in the rest of the body. For example, the health of your gum tissues also referred to as “periodontal tissues” have been proven to be correlated with your risk of heart disease, stroke, and even pancreatic cancer. When visiting my practice, patients have the technology available to them that enables the proactive evaluation of each individual’s risk for dental disease with the goal that intervention can be introduced before serious complications are allowed to occur.

On a much more personal note, being a Dentist is what I dreamed of accomplishing my entire life. It is the special relationships that I have with my team members and patients that make this profession so endearing and powerful to me. The best rewards come when our patients, because they are happy and satisfied with our practice, start bringing their loved ones, family, friends to our Practice – the greatest form of flattery is a referral. The desired cosmetic results, pain relief, and the comfort they feel when visiting make our patients happy, and that makes me happy. When I see our patients leave our office with a healthy smile, it makes my heart sing the whole day. I am so thankful that I get to do what I do each and every day. It is a privilege like no other. For this reason, I will cherish this profession and all that it has given me for the rest of my life.

I hope that this is a clear indication of my commitment to ensuring that our actions are guided at all times by your best interests.

We look forward to seeing you in our practice.

John Bjornson, BSc, DMD
