Dr. Lori Musacchio (BSC, DMD)
Dr. Musacchio graduated from UBC in 1994 with a BSc (Bachelor of Science). In 1996 I graduated from UBC with a BEd (Bachelor of Education). I received my DMD( Doctor of Dental Medicine) at UBC in 2001. I completed a General Practice Residency in 2002 at UBC.
I have been working at Belmont Dental Centre since 2002. Between 2002-2011, I worked full time. In 2011, I went on maternity leave and returned part time.
I love the blend of art and science in the field of dentistry. Dentistry is a great discipline because you are continually learning new procedures, updating your techniques and applying them to general practice. I also enjoy teamwork but most of all I really love patient interaction. I love making patients feel comfortable and at ease in the dental chair.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and two boys, Matteo (2 years old) and Alessio (1year old). I enjoy travelling,reading, skiing and hiking.
