Dr. Mike Stearns grew up in Kelowna, B.C. He received both his Bachelor of Science in Biology and his dental degree from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. During his time there he met his now wife, Priya, who is also a dentist.

After graduation they moved to Northern Alberta and then to Whitehorse, Yukon for a few years. They always had a desire to come back home to the Okanagan, and after recently welcoming their first child, they decided it was the right time to make the move.

Dr. Stearns continues to advance his knowledge and skill set through study in various aspects of dentistry. He has completed training in implant dentistry, various surgical techniques, and Invisalign treatment. He is also an active member of the Kois Center for Advanced Dental Learning in Seattle, Washington.

Outside of the office, Dr. Stearns enjoys spending time with his wife and son, skiing, fishing, mountain biking, and cheering for the Blue Jays.
