Dr. Amin Shivji was born in Africa and moved to Vancouver in 1973. He graduated from the University of British Columbia in 1989 with a BSc in Biology and entered the Faculty of Dentistry at UBC, graduating in 1993.
He has been practicing general dentistry in Vancouver since 1993 and has taken numerous postgraduate courses in Occlusion, Gum Surgery, Cosmetic and Laser Dentistry. For the last several years, Dr. Shivji has focused on cosmetic dentistry, including Invisalign and dental implants.
Dr. Shivji strives to help patients achieve excellent oral health and awareness through personalized patient education. Recognizing that oral health can affect other areas of the body, Dr Shivji evaluates and treats each patient with the goal of helping them to achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Dr. Shivji believes strongly in giving back to the community and has made significant donations to oral cancer research through the BC Cancer Foundation, providing generous donations each year since the beginning of the annual “Evening to Conquer Oral Cancer.” He has also given generously to his alma mater, the UBC Dental School, where he donated the funds for the renovation of two much needed conference rooms.
When he’s not practicing leading edge dental care with patients, Dr. Shivji and his wife Sharon love to travel with their two boys.
