Kelowna Family Dental traces back to the first dental practice in Kelowna! Dr. Shepherd opened Kelowna’s first dentist office in 1905. Dr. Geis bought it from him in 1950 and then Dr. Martin took over in 1986. Dr. Martin also bought a practice from Dr. Mac Leitch and joined the two together. With Dr. Moreau buying the practice in 2016, she became the fourth dentist to own Kelowna’s original dental clinic. In early 2020, Dr. Moreau added Dr. Sue Randhawa’s practice to Kelowna Family Dental as well when Dr. Randhawa retired. And Dr. Bal joined us in 2022. We have many loyal patients who have been with our practice through the changing doctors over the years. The location and names may have changed over the years, but the commitment to quality dental care remains the same!
Dr. Robyn Moreau, General Dentist
Dr. Robyn Moreau has practiced in Castlegar, Vernon and Kelowna since graduating from UBC Dentistry in 2010. Prior to that, she received a Bachelor of Science with a major in Biology and a minor in Arts from UBC as well. She has lived in many places over the years – Haida Gwaii, Northern BC, Fruitvale, Vancouver & Australia to name a few – but is happy to call Kelowna her forever home now.
In between her degrees, she volunteered in Australia at a boarding school for Aboriginal students. While in dental school, she was lucky enough to be able to volunteer in both Uganda and Cambodia providing much needed dental care to local children as well as on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Robyn has enjoyed getting to know the Okanagan and looks forward to many more years here with her family. She loves travelling, photography, exploring the outdoors, baking and spending time with her family and her dog. She enjoys helping people achieve healthy mouths and beautiful smiles.
Robyn also loves to learn and can often be found spending her spare time in continuing education courses learning more about teeth as well as learning about her other interests. She taught herself how to crochet a couple years ago and is still expanding on those skills and currently is learning more about editing photos.

While in Dental School, Dilraj did lots of volunteer work. Not only did she volunteer in Anahim, BC and Nepal, she also helped run the Abbotsford Student Clinic providing dental work to those in need in Abbotsford! Dr. Bal enjoys helping people maintain their oral health. She prides herself on making patients feel comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable situation and helping to create a positive experience in the dental chair.
