Parth Naik, BDS, DDS
Being a dentist is fulfilling. I like being around and helping people, educating them about their oral health, and guiding individuals toward healthy smiles.
Working with my patients, I take time to listen and learn. Each patient is unique, with specific concerns and expectations, in addition to their clinical needs. It is my responsibility to understand what an individual wants and then identify the best approach for their situation. Rather than dictating treatment, I explain the options, answer the patient’s questions, and give them the information needed to make dental decisions that are right for them.
I want patients to feel safe and supported in the office, to be free of stress and worry, and to know I place their best interests as the top priority.
Background, Education, and Experience
I grew up in Gujarat, India and graduated with my Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) from Dharamsinh Desai University in 2011. I then moved to Vancouver in 2012 and attended Farleigh Dickinson University, where I received a Master in Administrative Science (MAS) in 2013.
Dental school was the next step in my career. I obtained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) at the University of Southern California in 2018 and have been in practice since that time.
As a dentist, I enjoy educating patients about oral wellness and the connection between a healthy mouth and body. Empowering people to take control of their dental health helps them gain self-esteem and confidence, as their smile becomes healthier and more attractive.

Beyond the Practice
When I go home in the evening it’s to spend time with my wife, who is pursuing her dream to practice dentistry. We enjoy walks in the park and longer hikes, and love to travel to explore new-to-us destinations and cuisines. I also enjoy playing cricket in my spare time.
