Envision Denture and Implant Centre Partner + Registered Denturist
Registered Denturist Gordon Brown has been practicing the art of smiles since 1995. Gordon opened his first denture practice in Langley, BC. In 2005, after practicing for 10 years in the community, an opportunity came up to move his family and practice to the South Surrey area. Living and working in the same community was important to Gordon. When away from the office and laboratory, he can be found fishing or playing music - specifically bass guitar with his band at a number of charitable events in the South Surrey and White Rock, BC area.

Outside of the lab, Nicole spends her time enjoying physical activities with friends and family.

With a modern and friendly atmosphere, Susan helps our patients feel welcome and comfortable. She loves the water, so the access to the ocean views in the White Rock area make it her place to be!
