Meet Our Endodontists

Dr. Kiarash Shabehpour

Dr. Kiarash Shabehpour (or Dr. Kia as his patients tend to call him) started his dentistry journey in 1998. After earning his DDS degree in dentistry and practicing for a few years, he moved to Canada with his wife.

In Canada, he attended dental school again at the University of British Columbia for his 2nd degree in dentistry, this time a DMD, practiced for a few more years in both Vancouver and Prince George and then completed three extra years of specialist training in Endodontics at UBC. Dr. Shabehpour primarily helps his patients and colleagues with root canal-related treatments and surgeries on a referral basis. He is fluent in English and Farsi.

Dr. Adriana Hernandez

Dr. Adriana Hernandez obtained her BDS degree in Venezuela in 2005. Following several years of successful practice as a general dentist, she decided to further her expertise by specializing in Endodontics. Her journey as a specialist in Endodontics allowed her to serve the dental community in Venezuela with high skill and dedication for several years.

Later on, Dr. Hernandez, along with her husband and three children, relocated to Canada. In Canada, she pursued additional dental education at the University of British Columbia, where she earned certification for her specialty degree. Today, Dr. Hernandez primarily assists patients and colleagues with root canal treatments and endodontic surgeries on a referral basis. She is fluent in English and Spanish.


What services does a endodontist provide?

Endodontics is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing and treating diseases of the dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of teeth. Root canals are the most common endodontic procedure. The procedure involves the removal of infected or damaged pulp and attempting to save the damaged tooth.

At Chinook Dental Group, we offer various endodontic services including dental trauma, endodontic microsurgeries, root canal retreatment, and root canals.


What you need, when you need it

Receive prompt, professional endodontic services to treat dental trauma when you need them most.

When should you see an endodontist?

You may need an endodontics procedure if you experience any of the following symptoms: severe tooth pain or sensitivity, prolonged tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swelling or tenderness in the gums near the affected tooth, a recurring or persistent pimple on the gums, or a darkening or discoloration of the affected tooth.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, schedule an appointment with our endodontist to properly diagnose and determine if you need an endodontics procedure. You do not need a dental referral.
