Anshika Taneja, BDS, DDS
As a dentist, I simply love the fact that I can make my patients smile!
Dentistry, for me, is all about returning smiles and confidence. A mixture of art and science, when delivered ethically can change people’s lives and leave a positive impression.I believe in eliminating pain, restoring function and educating my patient about their oral health, to help them enjoy a better quality of life.
Background, Education, and Experience
I grew up in New Delhi (India) and received my Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) in India. After practicing dentistry for two years in India, I moved to Canada in 2012 and went through a CDA program in Windsor, Ontario.
After gaining some clinical experience, I decided to go back to school – one of the best decisions I have ever made. I graduated with Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from University of Alberta in 2019. I have since then been practicing in Vancouver.
The team at Marinaside Dental share my dedication to deliver ethical and honest dental care to our patients. We believe in treating each patient as an individual, placing their health and wellbeing at the forefront, and guide them to making informed decisions.
We also share a genuine appreciation for the opportunity to serve others. With warmth, kindness, and humility, we provide the personalized service and attentive care we would want for ourselves and our family members.

In my spare time I enjoy exploring local food restaurants with my Spouse. I follow an active lifestyle and love going for walks. Following dentistry, I am obsessed with home décor and interiors.
