Dr. Tansey grew up in Langley and lives in Nanaimo. He attended the University of Victoria, graduating in 1991 with a BSc in Biology. He went on to study at the University of British Columbia and graduated with his DMD in 1995. After graduation he practiced in Smithers for 17 years before moving to Nanaimo to practice at Dover View Dental.
One of Dr. Tansey’s goals is to change the way people see dentists and dentistry while providing quality dental care. Dentistry has evolved and is recognized as an important part of a person’s overall health. Dentists now help treat sleep apnea, snoring, high blood pressure, diabetes, headaches, and heart disease.
Outside the office Dr. Tansey loves spending time with his family, which includes six children, and enjoying the outdoors. He embraces all that Nanaimo has to offer and enjoys hockey, cycling, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, and playing golf.
