Dr. Mark Spurr

Dr. Spurr completed a B.Sc. Microbiology and a M.Sc. Molecular Biology from UBC, during the years 1973-1979. He obtained his Dental Degree from the University of Toronto. He has been practicing general dentistry since graduating in 1983, encompassing all aspects of dentistry, including sedation, implants, major restorative, and wisdom teeth extractions. Dr Spurr practiced in Alberta for the first 16 years of his career, before returning to BC to practice with his long time friends, Drs. Peter Kearney (high school friend), Katrin Turu, and Clive Jones. After the change of ownership at West Van Dental Group and the untimely retirement of their partner Dr. Clive Jones, Drs. Kearney, Turu, and Spurr decided that it was time to join forces with some “like minded” young dentists and make the move to their new “Dental Home” with Howe Sound Dental Group, in Lynn Valley. Dr. Spurr looks forward, with great excitement to working with both new and old partners.

Dr. Spurr has also been and still is active in organized dentistry, serving on committees at the College of Dental Surgeons, and as a Director of the BC Dental Association. His largest contribution has been his membership on the Organizing Group of the Pacific Dental Conference, the largest annual dental conference in Canada. Away from the office, if the family is not hiking with their dog Hamish Dr.Spurr enjoys, with his wife Gail, world travel, road cycling, power boating, kayaking, hiking, and attending to their small acreage on Vancouver Island. Occasionally they are joined by their two adult children.
