Dr Britt Hakim
BDent (USyd) BAppSci. (UBC) BBiochem (UVic)
Affectionately known to her patients as the “Canadian Dentist”, Dr Britt completed her studies in dentistry at the University of Sydney. Since that time, she has earned herself a reputation as one of north west Sydney’s leading dentists with her honest, skilled and compassionate approach to dental care. She adores kids (and they adore her!) and she has a particular interest in orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry and full mouth rehabilitation. Dr Britt strongly believes in preventative dentistry and empowering her patients by proactively educating them about their oral health.
Prior to pursing her career in dentistry, Dr Britt completed degrees in Biochemistry (University of Victoria, BC, Canada) and Applied Science (University of British Columbia, BC, Canada) and during this time she was actively engaged at the forefront of cancer and HIV/AIDS research at some of Canada’s leading research institutes. Her research gave her the opportunity to volunteer with some of the poorest and most marginalised communities in the world, including delivering health care in mud huts in Africa and working with homeless and indigenous groups on the roughest streets of Vancouver, where the rates of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis are comparable to that in developing countries. These experiences have shaped Dr Britt to be an empathetic, attentive and caring practitioner who listens to her patients and seeks to provide personalised care in a comfortable and trusted environment.
Dr Britt and her family are local residents who value giving back to the community. Her husband Dr Jono is also a valued member of The Grove Dental family. And of course, she wouldn’t be complete without her two sons, her human son Noah and her canine cavoodle son Gus – who is by far the most popular member of our team.
