Meet the man behind the dental mask.

After completing the Canadian NDEB exam in 1989 at UBC, Dr. Klaus is entitled to carry the title Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS), and is a member of the BC College of Dental Surgeons.

He taught at the university in Hamburg for one year and afterwards worked in private practice with a professor of prosthodontics in Hamburg for two years.

After moving to Nanaimo in 1991, Dr. Klaus opened Applecross Dental in 1992. We’ve been located at the same convenient address ever since!

Prosthodontics, also known as prosthetic dentistry, is the area of dentistry that focuses on dental prostheses. This includes crowns and bridges, partial and complete dentures, and restorative implant dentistry.
