Dr. Evan Wiens graduated from UBC Faculty of Dentistry in 2012, and prior to that he completed his Bachelor of Science at University of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford where both he and his wife Jennifer grew up.
Between degrees he traveled to 17 countries over 9 months! Besides traveling, he is an avid hiker, runner, and mountain biker in the summer and skier in the winter. He has also played the violin since the age of 5.
Evan has a keen interest in oral surgery (wisdom tooth extractions and dental implants), endodontics (root canal therapy), restorative and esthetic dentistry and full mouth reconstruction (smile makeovers). He also enjoys providing dentistry for children, having two children of his own! He is also a certified Invisalign provider enabling him to treat many orthodontic issues using “invisible” aligners rather than brackets and wires.
Dr. Wiens is a graduate and mentor at the Kois Center in Seattle, Washington, teaching conservative, evidence based dental principles.
Evan is also actively involved in several volunteer community dental projects around BC, serving underprivileged communities with no access to dental care. In July 2013 he led a team of volunteer dentists and hygienists from UBC to provide much needed dental care to the Anaham First Nation community near Williams Lake, BC. It turned out to be the most successful volunteer clinic that UBC Dentistry has ever had. Evan is looking forward to further building the ongoing relationship with this community. He is also on the editorial board for the BC Dental Association’s journal, “the Bridge,” informing dentists in BC of current issues in dentistry. He is also the 2024 President of the Thompson Okanagan Dental Society, a non-profit organization promoting continuing education in the Okanagan dental community.
Dr. Wiens has been the recipient of several awards, including the UFV Young Distinguished Alumni Award for his leadership involvement in the dental community and is one of UFV's top 40 alumni, and he has been awarded Fellowships in the Pierre Fauchard Academy and the American College of Dentists.
