Don Belke graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in Southern California in 1989. After practicing as an Associate dentist in Santa Barbara, Dr. Belke relocated to the Kelowna area where, in 1992, he opened a solo practice.
Dr. Belke began his practice with a passion and talent in the area of endodontics (root canals). His ongoing education and area of expertise has widened to include implant surgery and bite rehabilitation, while placing a priority on superior esthetics.
Over the last twenty years, dental implants and cosmetic gum surgery have proven to be both highly successful and beneficial, therefore, Dr. Belke is excited to promote these 21st Century procedures as a fundamental part of excellent dentistry in his practice. Dr. Belke offers a broad scope of dentistry to his patients and continues to be mentored by some of the most highly respected professionals in dental implant and bite rehabilitation techniques (Dr. Dwayne Karateew of Vancouver, B.C and Dr. Jim Beck of Pueblo, Colorado respectively).
In his leisure time, Dr. Belke enjoys fishing, sledding and inventing dental equipment. These inventions he currently uses in his own practice and has partnered with manufacturers with plans to bring them to market.
