Meet our Dentist Chélise Kasun
Dentist Chélise Kasun, DMD, is a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan, where she received her Bachelor of Science in biochemistry and her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD). At Artisan Dental, she offers a wide range of dental services to provide our patients with important oral healthcare and cosmetic dentistry services for people who want to improve the health and appearance of their smiles.
Dr. Kasun has completed coursework at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), where she studies neuromuscular dentistry and cosmetic dentistry so she can strive to achieve the healthiest, optimally functional and most beautiful smiles for each of her patients.
Both Dr. Kasun and our staff participate in continuing education opportunities to incorporate the latest knowledge into the care of our patients. On average, Dr. Kasun completes six times the required continuing education hours per year for dentists in British Columbia.
Dr. Kasun is passionate about being a dentist, and the most rewarding aspects of her work are seeing a patient leave smiling bigger than when they came in, as well as helping people achieve their goals for their mouth and oral health.
Growing up in Saskatchewan, Dr. Kasun had a passion for dancing since the age of 5. She has taught dancing and continues to dance in her free time. She also enjoys supporting the local Victoria art scene. She has lived in British Columbia since 2007.
