Relaxing, Open & Modern
We did it, and we’re not ashamed to tell you: we got a face lift!
This was no ordinary renovation, we designed it with YOU in mind. Taking into account the tiniest of details, the clinic was designed to be your home away from home—as comfortable as possible whilst supporting your every success.
Legato boasts a relaxing open concept with a modern twist. From colours to textures every selection was made to provide a relaxing atmosphere for patients and staff alike. Big, bright windows allow for a breathtaking view of Kelowna’s mountains and sky. Ambient and accent lighting combined with natural light creates a cheery, sunny feel for your workday. Unique sliding barn doors separate the reception area from the five treatment rooms, allowing for privacy without creating a barrier to communication or workflow.
Just a few steps away, Canadian Diagnostic Imaging allows for convenient CBCT scans within the shortest possible time frame.
The Legato Experience
Patients LOVE being treated like royalty
Our patients are the lifeblood of our clinic and they certainly appreciate how important they are to us! From the moment they walk in the door to the moment they leave, their care and comfort is our top priority. You’ll find going the extra mile is the standard around here, and our patients LOVE being treated like royalty (almost as much as we LOVE making the feel like royalty).
We not only provide the best dental care possible, but we also provide the best customer service as well. In fact, we take customer satisfaction to a whole new level. Some would even call us obsessed. And hey, if you call collecting feedback from our patients daily through electronic surveys obsessed, then maybe we are. That’s a badge we will gladly wear. How else are we going to continually improve where needed and bask in the praises of a job well done? Hearing what our patients have to say always puts a smile on our faces and an extra skip in our step.
The Legato Family
Dedicated and exceptionally skilled.
It’s no secret that great co-workers can be one of the leading causes of happiness at work. The Journal of Managerial Psychology states that the quality of workplace relationships closely relates to career success and job satisfaction. But really, who needed that stated? You know when you’re so close to you co-workers they feel like family? Well that’s what we have here. Or maybe you have no idea what we’re talking about, and it’s the exact reason why you’re looking into working with us in the first place. Either way you understand the importance of an environment that gets an A+ in morale.
We pride ourselves on our harmonious, drama-free atmosphere and our ability to work together like a well-oiled machine. Read that again… it’s REALLY important!
You’ll hear plenty of laughter throughout your workday, while being supported by dedicated, exceptionally skilled team members who are always working towards a common goal.
We meet often. No one likes being in the dark, besides we believe communication is only good if it’s timely. That’s why we have brief daily huddles and weekly staff meetings, how else do you think we share all our victories, continually grow and provide the best possible experience for our patients? #SharingIsCaring #LegatoLife
Nestled in the heart of the Okanagan
Kelowna is nestled in the heart of the Okanagan, and we’re lucky enough to call this vacation destination home! The summers offer everything from locally grown produce and world-famous vineyards, to boating, fishing, watersports, rock climbing, hiking, beaches and all the golf you can handle. Kelowna’s backyard is our playground; camping, hiking, biking, kayaking and exploring is always just steps away. Heck, if you’re into parasailing, we go that too!
Winters here are mild and are just as much fun as our summers. With three ski resorts in the area (and plenty of mountains in between) downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are just some of the activities you can enjoy with Kelowna’s limitless landscape.
The city of Kelowna is just as entertaining as her landscape. There’s a temperature-controlled outdoor rink in the heart of downtown just a few steps away from the lake. With our museums, spas, concerts, art-galleries, shopping, breweries, festivals, casinos and live theatres, you’ll never be bored. Kelowna’s lifestyle is all about balance, so as much as we love our activates, we also love our food and wine. We’re renowned for our rich culinary scene and world-class restaurants, so be prepared to eat some of the best food of your life!
Whether you have a family with young ones, you’re an empty nester, or you’re just starting out, there are limitless activities. There’s just one problem…what to choose?!
Change the world for the better
Giving back is one of the ways Legato celebrates being part of this incredible community. Our outreach efforts include donating dental supplies, services and monetary offerings to local and worldwide charities.
Helping others is what our philosophy is all about, so each time we meet our production goals, we donate $1000 to a charity chosen specifically by our staff. Past beneficiaries have included: YMCA Strong Kids Foundation, Central Okanagan Hospice Association and Kelowna’s Gospel Mission, among others .
In November of 2016, our staff created “Dentistry for the Heart,” a day where we donated free dental services to patrons of the Women’s Shelter and their children. We want to change the world for the better; a culture of giving allows us to find joy while serving our fellow human beings in need.
Commitment to Education
“An investment in Knowledge pays the best interest” - Benjamin Franklin
We’ve already shared with you that we have a passion for giving our clients the best possible care, in fact we’re downright obsessed with it. This passion drives us to be the best in our field. Continuing education and opportunities for growth are of paramount importance. That’s why we’ve put together programs to support your constant evolution.
Here are just a few of the ways we’re committed to your continued education:
Spear Study Club
Once a month, Dr. Bishop and several enthusiastic colleagues meet to expand their skills and discuss noteworthy and challenging case studies. The study club is hosted in-house and includes many membership benefits: guided learning modules; patient education library; 2-day entry into a Spear seminar; and access to the dedicated Study Club website. You’ll also enjoy the Spear online platform with its extensive course library, staff training resources and a peer-to-peer interactive online discussion forum.
Kelowna & District Dental Society (KDDS)
A great place to network, the KDDS meets four times each calendar year as a social and educational club. Speakers are from the Okanagan and Lower Mainland and have included many of our local specialists, physiotherapists, financial planners, and physicians.
The Thompson Okanagan Dental Society (TODS) meets annually right here in Kelowna for a celebration of community and learning-- featuring supplier showcases, social events, workshops and educational seminars. It is the second largest annual dental meeting in British Columbia and has registration totals of over 1000 dental professionals. Become acquainted with the latest technology, research and educational information, not to mention the close-knit community of dedicated dentists, surgeons and specialists.
After completing dental school, Dr. Bishop entered a three year residency in Prosthodontics. An additional year of training gave him the background to be one of the leading specialists in Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD) and obtain a Master’s in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). His work has been published in ‘Sleep and Breathing,’ a peer-reviewed and clinically oriented academic journal focused on the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disordered breathing. Dr. Bishop’s long experience in diagnosing and treating the most complicated dental cases has resulted in an extraordinary skillset that he has spent over 10 years teaching to others. As part of the Legato team, you have instant access to mentorship in complex crown/bridge, removable and implant dentistry, TMD and OSA treatment.
So, that's us in a nutshell
We’re highly obsessed client experience champions who love where we live and wouldn’t trade our work family for the world.
