Our patients’ needs are our priority and we stand behind our commitment to superior service and quality care for every patient.


We are a dynamic and highly skilled team of dental professionals with years of combined experience in periodontal treatment and specialty patient care.


Certified Specialist in Periodontics
BDS (Hons), MSc, Cert. Perio., FRCD(c)

Dr. Tymkiw practiced general dentistry for two years before receiving his Specialty Certificate in Periodontics and a Master’s of Science degree from the University of Iowa in 2008. He is committed to academic study, is an active member of numerous dental organizations and societies, has published several articles on periodontics, and has lectured at numerous venues. He has advanced training and experience in all facets of periodontics and implant surgery and is dedicated to offering the latest surgical techniques.

And while Dr. Tymkiw has all of the requisite letters behind his name and has earned them all, what his patients appreciate most is the expert and compassionate patient care he provides each and every one of them. Keelen is first and foremost a talented surgeon and his results consistently exceed expectations. He is also warm, caring and gentle; never too busy to answer your questions, explain a procedure and talk to you about your periodontal condition, and outline exactly what you can expect with your treatment.

When he’s not at the office he is spending time with his wife and two kids along with their dogs, Charli and Rosco. They hike, bike, ski and boat; enjoying everything the beautiful Okanagan valley has to offer. He loves working in Kelowna and Vernon and is committed to providing high quality, patient-centered periodontal care for the dental communities of the South, Central and North Okanagan.

Warm, caring, and compassionate are the words that come to mind when describing Amanda. As a busy wife and mom to three, she’s always on the go and she enjoys life to the fullest – she’s a fitness enthusiast, she loves the outdoors and practices yoga to keep her balanced. With a little bit of a hippy-soul (she explored the sacred red-rock caves of Sedona) she is passionate about her dental career and finds great satisfaction helping people with their oral health.
Active is Milena’s middle name… when she’s not at the office taking expert care of our patients, she is likely outdoors hiking, biking, swimming, or playing with her two pups: both German Shepherds and both very demanding. She’s also a regular foster for dogs in need even taking on the task of surrogate mom to a four-week pup rejected by his dog mom. Thankfully she’s a lover of the Okanagan’s best-known commodity (wine!) and she enjoys a glass or few every now and then.
Our CDAs are experts at setting their patients at ease from the moment the appointment begins. Their warmth and caring are unparalleled and they consistently exceed patient’s expectations. They work tirelessly to ensure your procedure is smooth and seamless and together with Dr. Tymkiw help ease your concerns and keep you safe and comfortable. With over 35+ years of chairside and surgical experience they are able to patiently answer any and all questions you have and you will be treated like family when you are under their care.
NadineAdministration / CDA
Our in-house Energizer Bunny! Nadine coordinates the hustle and bustle of our busy office with efficiency and a good dose of humour. The antics of her animals (and hubby!) on her hobby farm bring a smile to everyone’s face – from a calf putting the run on her Collie, to the Collie stealing chicken eggs, there is never a dull moment. For her few moments of respite Nadine plays hockey, rides horses and enjoys spending time with her two daughters and said husband!

Kelly Ann
Kelly AnnRDH
We think Kelly Ann has found the Fountain of Youth. Although she recently retired from Interior Health, she heads our hygiene department and is committed to helping her patients build and maintain their oral health between appointments. She’s active in the community, loves to ski, hike and golf, and her easy-going nature and helpful demeanor have earned her a dedicated following of patients who trust her implicitly with their dental health.


I have always been fearful of a dentist chair and become anxious at the thought. However, being here from the moment I stepped through the door made me feel at ease and relaxed. I was amazed at the time spent with me to explain and reassure me. Even though I spent my cruise money to correct my infected teeth and mouth, it is money well spent and will last years as opposed to two weeks. I smile with confidence and highly recommend Dr. Tymkiw and his staff. Gentle and thorough.

I really appreciate the friendly welcoming response from all staff members. I appreciate the careful review at the beginning of each appt. about what was about to occur. Also the “homecare” pkg I was given to ensure the recovery went well. The outcomes we were going for were reached, follow up visits were affirming, and reassuring. I would recommend this team to anyone.
