Dr. Patrizia Cannata

Dr. Patrizia Cannata

General Dentist

Dr. Patrizia Cannata, or Dr. Patty, is the dentist at Bayview Dental in the heart of Steveston, in Richmond, BC. She took up a career in dentistry because it gave her the ability to combine two things she cares about: making a positive impact in her community, and helping people feel better about themselves. Dr. Patty attended Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at Western University in London, Ontario, where she graduated with distinction. She originally graduated from the University of Medical Sciences and Technology in Khartoum, Sudan in 2009.

Upon moving to British Columbia, Dr. Patty, her husband and 4-year-old son settled in beautiful, historic Steveston. “It’s a joy to bump into my patients at the many boutique shops in town. There is a strong sense of community in Steveston, and I’m fortunate to live, work, and play here.”

Dr. Patty is particularly adept at working with children and her focus is on holistic and cosmetic dentistry, including Invisalign. “Sometimes, even a simple fix such as filling in a chipped or discolored tooth can make patients leave feeling better than when they came in. Helping my patients feel more confident in their smile and in themselves is what keeps me going!”

Dr. Patty is a big fan of eating, and always up for trying new foods. Her other hobbies include dancing, and tagging along on nature and birding excursions with her family. Dr. Patty is fluent in English, Arabic, and working on her Italian!

Dr. Sadaf Fazel

Dr. Sadaf Fazel

General Dentist

Dr. Sadaf Fazel was born and raised by a family of dentists. Her late father, one of the pioneers of dentistry, set a particularly great example for her in this career path. She learned from an early age that the dental office is no one’s favourite place. That is exactly why her utmost mission is to create an environment of gentle care and comfort to practice high-quality dentistry. Dr. Fazel takes pride in her ability to provide continuing care for many amazing patients; many of whom have been fearful of going to the dentist for a very long time. Her goal is to make sure her patients are as comfortable as they can possibly be in the dental chair.

Dr. Fazel’s passion is to create a beautiful smile that you can show off with pride and confidence. She truly believes that a healthy and confident smile can vastly improve one’s self-esteem and quality of life. To pursue this passion she has furthered her knowledge in delivering cosmetically pleasing results that are highly functional through many continuing dental education courses. Dr. Fazel has received extensive training and experience in Invisalign having done well over a hundred cases with extremely satisfied patients.

Dr. Fazel is a firm believer in continuous learning, she enjoys educating her patients regarding their oral health and dental needs. She enjoys simplifying complicated concepts in dentistry with the aid of videos and presentations, in order to make treatments easy to understand for her patients. She believes that patients should be active participants in planning for their dental care. The vast improvements in current dental technologies have made educating patients and delivering treatment much more feasible hence




Nafisah was born and raised in Richmond and is a proud graduate of Steveston-London Secondary School (formerly Steveston, Go Packers!) She joined the team at Bayview Dental Centre in 2017 after obtaining her three-year dental hygiene diploma from Vancouver Community College. She then furthered her education and completed her bachelor’s in dental science (BDSc) from the University of British Columbia in 2019.

Nafisah loves her career path as it enables her to educate and interact with clients as well as utilize her clinical skills. She prides herself in making sure all clients have a thorough and gentle cleaning and are at ease throughout their appointments. Nafisah is happy to be a GBT (guided biofilm therapy) certified hygienist and offers the latest technology in dental hygiene services.

In her spare time, she enjoys staying fit by weight training, running, and practicing yoga. She is a big foodie and enjoys trying out all sorts of cuisines, with brunch and dessert being my two favorite types of food. Any suggestions for local spots are always welcome. Nafisah is also fluent in speaking both Hindi and English.
