Meet Dr. Rinquinha
Dr. Anastasios (Tasso) Rinquinha was born and raised in Kitimat, BC, where he lived until finishing highschool.
During this time, Dr. Rinquinha had many dental experiences. At the age of 12 he found out he was missing 2 permanent teeth which had never developed. His wisdom teeth needed to be removed because they were not coming in properly, potentially affecting his long term health. He now had to get braces for many years which was followed by a retainer with fake teeth until the age of 18. It was decided that Dr. Rinquinha was not a suitable candidate for implants so his missing teeth were replaced with two porcelain bridges. It was these experiences that not only motivated Dr. Rinquinha to become a dentist, but allow him to relate to his patients on a very understanding and empathetic level.
Dr. Rinquinha completed a Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at UNBC in Prince George and then went on to complete his Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree at UBC in Vancouver. During that time he was honored and humbled to win many awards & accolades in front of colleagues, family and friends. After finishing his dental degree, Dr. Rinquinha started practicing dentistry back in Prince George. After a couple years in Prince George, an opportunity arose to return home to Kitimat to work in the community where he grew up.
Dr. Rinquinha believes in patient centered dentistry and believes every patient should be treated with the highest quality of care. He provides his patients with a positive, warm, and friendly experience. Dr. Rinquinha is constantly trying to improve his knowledge and skills in many areas such as implantology, orthodontics, leadership and management. In his spare time he enjoys working out, traveling, trying new foods, and spending time with family and friends.
