Meet Our Team
DR. SADAF FAZEL
Hello, Dr. Sadaf here.
YOUR COMFORT IS MY MISSION
I come from a family of dentists. My late father, who was a renowned dentist, inspired me greatly through this journey. At a young age, I learnt that no one really prefers a dental office. I always strive to provide a comfortable and caring environment where my patients can make use of our high-quality dentistry services. As a dentist, it gives me great satisfaction to be able to continue caring for my wonderful patients, some of whom have been avoiding the dentist for years out of sheer fear. My first priority as a dentist is making my patients as relaxed as possible during their visits.
PASSION FOR BETTER RESULTS
My goal is to give you a smile you're proud to show off. A healthy and assured smile can do wonders for one's self-esteem and overall quality of life. To improve my skills, I have taken several dental courses at dental institutions, expanding my knowledge of how to achieve aesthetically pleasing results without sacrificing functionality. I have done more than a hundred Invisalign cases with incredibly satisfied patients and have gotten substantial training and expertise in the procedure.
I am committed to providing my patients awareness about the many advantages of orthodontic treatment beyond aesthetics. We are fortunate that technological and dental improvements have allowed us to treat problems which previously could only be fixed with wires and brackets, which would cost double. Orthodontics can help people keep their teeth, jaw joint, and gums healthy in the long run. I do my best to keep patients informed of all of their choices, and I use visuals like videos and presentations to make even the most complex dental ideas understandable and accessible.
BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER
Since the significant advancements in modern dental technology have made patient education and treatment much more accessible, we have made a significant investment in dental equipment that is used by just a small percentage of dentists. Please give us a call to schedule your first visit and see for yourself how stress-free and pleasurable we can make your road to better dental health.
DR. PATRIZIA CANNATA
Dr. Patrizia Cannata, or Dr. Patty, is an associate 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 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 excursions with her family. Dr. Patty is fluent in English, Arabic, and working on her Italian!

Patient Care Coordinator
I started my reception career in dentistry in 1977, as a young lass, and all these many years later I still love what I have been gifted to do for a living. From creating and maintaining patient relationships and helping patients navigate the world of dental insurance to doing what it takes to be a part of an amazing dental team. Most of my career has seen me working in Vancouver and in 2015, I had the great pleasure of joining this dental team providing me the opportunity to serve the community I love. I have been an active member of my Richmond/Steveston community for over 40 years and have 2 adult children who are Steveston graduates. When not at work I practice hot yoga, love long walks, long reads and long road trips. Mexico is also on the agenda, yearly. My greatest joy in life is spending time with my family and grandchildren.
Patient Care Coordinator
Born in the beautiful islands of the Philippines, I grew up and spent my childhood between the Philippines and Brunei until I moved to Vancouver when I was 10 years old.
At a young age, I found a love for baking after watching my great-grandmother making desserts from scratch, to which I decided to pursue Baking & Pastry at The Art Institute of Vancouver. In becoming a Pastry Chef and enduring the rigours of a commercial kitchen, I, unfortunately, lost the passion for baking and missed the interaction with customers I had always loved. This brought me to working as an Assistant Manager at an Optometry clinic and now working as the receptionist here at Bayview Dental since May 2021.
When I’m not at work, I spend my days catching up on shows with my husband, trying out new restaurants with friends and spending time with my family.
Certified Dental Assistant
Bio Coming Soon
Born and raised in the heart of Steveston, I am a busy mom of 2 who joined the team as an Executive Assistant in 2020. I have become an integral part of the team at Bayview Dental Centre in supporting the clinical and administrative staff, assuring the days run smoothly. Meeting all the new patients, building relationships as I can and being apart of transforming someone’s smile and confidence is by far one of my favourite parts of the job. Coming from 15 years in customer service, I am currently pursuing a career in Criminology at Douglas College. I have played competitive softball for 25 years and have recently taken up boxing to help stay in shape and clear my mind. In my free time, when I am not enjoying a good movie and a glass of wine, you can find me enjoy the outdoors in some way or finding new and fun ways to express myself creatively, be it through art or design.
I was born here in Richmond but grew up in Guatemala for the first 12 years of my life. Since coming back to Canada, I have been in Richmond ever since!
A lot of my fond memories of growing up revolve around family and food; because of this, I decided to go into the culinary industry right after high school. It was a very rewarding and delicious path, but I still was missing something. I decided to travel to Australia for a year and “find myself” (still a work in progress). Since returning back to Canada, I have ventured into the world of optometry but was lucky enough to join this incredible team in 2021. I have learned so much already and love how you truly never stop learning in this industry.
I am a big foodie at heart, but most of my time outside of work is spent with my niece and nephew or reading outside.
I am born and raised in Richmond and I am a proud graduate of Steveston-London Secondary school (formerly Steveston, Go Packers!). I joined the team at Bayview dental centre in 2017 after obtaining my three-year dental hygiene diploma from Vancouver Community College. I decided to further my education and completed my bachelor’s in dental science (BDSc) from the University of British Columbia in 2019. I love my career path as it enables me to educate and interact clients, utilize my clinical skills and continue to stay current on the latest dental trends and techniques. I pride myself in making sure all clients have a thorough and gentle cleaning and are at ease throughout their appointment. In my spare time I enjoy staying fit by weight training, running and practicing yoga. I am a big foodie and enjoy trying out all sorts of cuisines, with brunch and dessert being my two favourite types of food. Any suggestions for local spots are always welcome. I also look forward to supporting local vendors by actively participating in the hot chocolate festival every year.
