Midway Dental Clinic offers comprehensive family dental care to patients in the regions of South Central British Columbia.

The largest city in the region is Grand Forks with a city population of almost 4,000 and an area population of about 10,000. The incorporated municipalities in the Boundary Country are the cities of Grand Forks and Greenwood and village of Midway. The unincorporated communities are Bridesville, Rock Creek, Westbridge, Christian Valley, Beaverdell, Carmi, Kettle Valley, Anaconda, Christina Lake and Cascade. During the area’s smelting and railway heyday, Phoenix was also incorporated as a city but only Greenwood and Grand Forks retain their city status, with Greenwood proudly retaining the status of “Canada’s Smallest City”.


If you would like to make an appointment, please contact our office by phone or email. If you are unable to reach our office during regular business hours, please leave a message and the office manager/booking coordinator will contact you as soon as possible, or call the after-hours number. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please call the after-hours number.


We understand the value of insurance benefits and will assist you in obtaining your maximum benefit. We will gladly process your insurance claims for you with direct billing, and will also estimate your deductible and co-pay. Your co-payment and deductible, are due at the time services are rendered. If after 45 days we have not received payment from your insurance the remaining balance will be patient responsibility. Please note that not all insurance companies accept direct billing.

Cosmetic dentistry, veneers, teeth whitening, etc. are usually not covered by insurance. Payment will be required in advance.

Payment is accepted by our office by VISA, M/C, Interac, Cash, or Email Transfer and all payments are due when service is rendered.


If you are unable to keep an appointment, we ask that you kindly provide us with at least 24 hours or more notice. We ask for this advance notice so that we can offer this appointment to another patient and they can make arrangements with their employer, child care or transportation. A fee of $50.00 may be charged if a patient does not show up for an appointment without sufficient notice. If further appointments are missed, we may request a $50 deposit to book further appointments.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our practice for your dental care.
We genuinely care for our patients
