New dentists to take over West Park Dental Clinic


Quesnel is getting two new dentists next week. Husband and spouse crew Sonny Phangura and Aman Shoker could take on the West Park Dental Clinic while the modern dentist, Branko Cervenka, retires on Monday, June three. Phangura, who attended high school at UBC, is first from Quesnel. He later met Shoker, who participated at the University of Saskatchewan. The pair have spent the past few years running as friends at a dental exercise in Victoria, even preserving an eye out for practices available within the North.

Shoker says that even earlier than the pair were married, Phangura hoped to take on an exercise returned home. “This became the appropriate timing,” she says. “We have always been looking for a practice,” provides Phangura. “We heard that Dr. Cervienka is retiring, so we checked it out — and it became everything we wanted to have. “My family is still here, so it was a clean pass for me.”

The pair say human beings recognized Phangura throughout the metropolis, and he says it’s fine to peer familiar faces properly. His mother and father live in the location: his mother works in the Rec Centre, and his father works for the City Yard. His more youthful brother Jesse also returned to the North and lived nearby, running within the Prince George’s Hospital, while his older brother Kelly moved south.


Many people the couple runs into have already heard they have been coming, at the same time as others they bumped into coincidentally. For instance, a hygienist at their practice labored with Phangura years earlier at Walmart. Now, both might be working together at the sanatorium. “I’m excited [to be back],” says Phangura. “I’ve been given some pals up here and’d like to be again at the Mainland. I wasn’t a massive fan of being on the Island, simply because I experienced a bit oisolationon… It’s super — being towards a circle of relatives, and buying our exercise wacheaperht here. It’s exquisite.”

Shoker, unlike Phangura, was born in Langley and raised in Calgary. Although she’s used to living in larger towns, she says she’s simply enjoying the tempo of things in Quesnel. “It’s relaxing right here,” she says. They each enjoy trekking and are looking to do more of it here, in addition to spending some time on the water at Dragon Lake and the Cottonwood River this summer. The couple has been returned to Quesnel for a month as they prepare to take over their new exercise. Although they’ve each been working as dentists for some years, they say there’s a chunk of a learning curve on the enterprise facet of factors.

Cervenka plans to help the new owners transition to that activity component: “He’s going to reveal to us the ropes and the way to run the enterprise quit of dentistry,” says Phangura. They take over the enterprise on Monday and keep the equal sufferers and body of workers — in addition to accepting new patients. “It’s the following step in and out of a career,” says Phangura. “And it’s sincerely interesting,” adds Shoker.
