Dale R. Machine, DMD

Dr. Dale Machine was born in Africa and grew up in Ottawa. He realized his passion for dentistry early as a teenager and subsequently moved with his family to British Columbia so that he could attend one of the leading dental schools in Canada.

Dale received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree with honours in 2002 from the University of British Columbia. He was the recipient of numerous awards, and continually strives to provide his patients with the highest standard of dental care. He has taken countless hours of continuing education in implant dentistry, orthodontics and comprehensive, full mouth reconstructive dentistry. Dr. Machine continues to take advanced dental courses and has been a Faculty Club member with Dr. Frank Spear – one of the world’s finest restorative specialists and leading dental educators.

Dr. Machine is passionate about providing his community with excellence in gentle oral health care and enjoys seeing families grow. He loves the artistry of aesthetic dentistry and is happiest when sharing in the joy and confidence that a beautiful smile can bring.

Dr. Machine is happily married to his college sweetheart, Lucia. They share their home close to Langley with their sons, David and Dante, and their rescued dogs, CJ and Jenny. Dale enjoys spending time with family and friends, and plays many sports – including golf, tennis and badminton. He is fond of food and travel and has a newly-discovered interest in photography.
