Meet The Doctor

Dr. Andrew N. Hokhold

Dr. Hokhold, better known in our office as Andrew, is a UBC Dentistry graduate in 1981.  He started his career servicing many communities along the Yellowhead Highway in British Columbia.  Dr. Hokhold then decided to move to Fort St. James in 1986 where the work would be substantial as well as condusive to experiencing a broad spectrum of procedures and in turn, servicing a remote community whose access to care was limited.

Dr. Hokhold started out his career practicing general dentistry but soon realized his enthusiasm with surgical procedures and decided to limit his general dentistry toward the oral surgery aspect.  Vernon became home in the year 2000 where he began serving the community on a limited basis which soon expanded from that point on.  Dr. Hokhold‘s scope of practice includes anything from the simplest dental extraction to the most complex tooth extraction and procedures including cyst removal and biopsy, bone grafting, full dental clearance with ridge preservation for the placement of dentures, tori/exostosis removal, tooth exposure for orthodontics, segmental osteotomies, sinus closures/ grafts.

In our office, we offer sedation to anyone who may be apprehensive about dental treatment.  Dr. Hokhold is registered with the College of Dental Surgeons to provide moderate sedation utilizing multiple oral sedative drugs.
