Priya Stearns grew up in Kelowna, B.C. She went to the University of Victoria to obtain her Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology, and then went to the University of British Columbia to obtain her dental degree. It was at UBC where she met her husband Mike, who is also a dentist at Summerland Dental Centre.

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. Priya Stearns continues to advance her knowledge in all aspects of dentistry. She has completed additional training in Orthodontics,  Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD), Sleep Apnea diagnosis/ treatment of Botulinum Toxin ( Botox).

Outside of the office, Dr. Priya enjoys spending time with her family, skiing, and enjoying the beautiful Okanagan.
