Darryl is happy to be able to contribute his experience and expertise from over 30 years as a general dentist to Dr. Staple’s practice. Upon graduation from dentistry at the University of Alberta, Darryl immediately moved to Victoria. He and his wife, Arla, have been here ever since while raising their three children, now all adults with their own families. Darryl operated his own dental clinic in Victoria until passing it on to a younger colleague in 2015. Darryl is now happily straddling the working world and that of retirement, maintaining his professional skills and responsibilities while enjoying more free time.
Maintaining a high level of clinical excellence has been foremost throughout Darryl’s career. He is highly trained in occlusion (bite) and all facets of restorative dentistry. His practice philosophy and treatment modalities are completely in line with Dr. Staple’s.
Membership in organized dentistry has been important throughout his practice life. Darryl is an Honorary Member of the Victoria and District Dental Society, having maintained his membership in since commencing practice in Victoria and has served on the VDDS board and as President Elect and President. He has also been a board member of the British Columbia Dental Association, serving for several years in that position.
When he is not at work, Darryl can be found doing something physical; jogging, biking, cross training, skiing or hiking. And if you can’t locate him doing one of these, you will find him in his wood work shop or travelling with Arla.
