MEET the DOCTORS

  • Dr. E Bruce Kennedy

    Languages spoken: English, French

    Dr. E Bruce Kennedy was born in Boston, Massachusetts and was raised in Lachine, Quebec. He completed a degree in electrical engineering at McGill University in 1970. He then went directly into dental school at McGill and graduated in 1974. Dr. Kennedy moved to Vancouver to begin his practice after graduation.

    In the years since, he has focused his continuing education on three major areas: orthodontics, implant dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. He has proven to be an innovator in all three fields. Dr. Kennedy was one of the first adoptees of both “functional orthodontics” and Core-Vent implants in Vancouver. He is also one of only several hundred doctors who have completed the intensive full-mouth reconstruction plan program at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dentistry.

    Dr. Kennedy is married to Catherine Scholte and they have four grown children: Nathan, Sarah, Stephen, and Paul.

    Dr. Benson Fung was born and raised in Vancouver and attended Windermere Secondary School. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of British Columbia and a Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) from Indiana University. He completed his residency at the University of Michigan.

    From Michigan, Dr. Fung ventured to the warm, welcoming and diverse region of Southern California, where he was an attending surgeon at UCLA and made the family-oriented Yorba Linda area his home. He operated a successful dental practice there from 2001 through 2014.

    Dr. Fung approaches patients and their dental needs with a depth of dental experience combined with a creative, personal manner. He integrates science, technology and art to create the smiles his patients have always wanted.

    Dr. Fung is proud to return to his hometown as a member of the clinical team at Victoria & 54th Dental. He looks forward to building on the incredible tradition of care that has been established over the past 40 years.

  • Dr. Devin Jones, B.S.C., D.D.C.

    Languages spoken: English

    Devin was born and raised in Ottawa, ON. After completing a BSc. in Biology at Western University in London, ON he went on to receive his degree in Dentistry from Dalhousie University in 2010. In 2011, he completed a one-year General Practice Residency at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary, AB, which, in addition to providing additional training and experience in all areas of dentistry, focused on the treatment of medically compromised patients. Following completion of the residency, Devin’s keen interest in windsurfing took him to Perth, Western Australia where he continued to practice dentistry (and chased waves on weekends!). After returning to Canada, as an active individual with a passion for the outdoors, he joined Victoria & 54th Family Dentistry in April 2017.

    Devin remains active in pursuing continuing education in many areas of dentistry to continue to expand his skills to provide the best possible care for his patients. He has been a member of the Vancouver Implant, Periodontic & Prosthodontic Study Club since 2016 and regularly attends continuing education courses on a number of topics.

    As someone who is extremely grateful for many experiences from participation in sport, Devin organizes an annual charity event in Toronto, which raises funds for “Right To Play” (www.righttoplay.ca) and “Their Opportunity” (www.theiropportunity.com), two organizations that provide access to sport for kids who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity.
