Katie Vanderbeck

Treatment Coordinator / Denturist Assistant

Hi there, my name is Katie Vanderbeck.  I’m originally from ‘back East,’ New Brunswick. I lived in a small community outside of the Miramichi called Sunny Corner.  I was ready for a change and an adventure, so I decided to move to Kelowna, BC in late 2020.  Yes, in the middle of the pandemic! To a province I have never even visited before! And it was the best decision of my life!

I started with Okanagan Denture in January 2021 and have never looked back.  I love Kelowna and am now an integral part of the Okanagan Denture family!  I am fully trained in many different aspects of the business including all available treatment options, denture care, patient care, insurance billing, and can assist to the production and creation of the dentures in our in house lab. I love learning new things every day and making the treatment plan process to go as smoothly as possible for everyone. Dillon is very supportive and teaches me something new almost every day and makes it a fun happy environment to work at!

At Okanagan Denture, our clients are our priority and often become a part of the family.  I appreciate working at a small business because I am able to get to know each patient and work with such a diverse and wonderful group of clients here in the Okanagan valley. I love to see them so satisfied and happy after their visits to our office, especially when they are leaving with their beautiful new smiles!!

On my free time, I try to enjoy everything Kelowna has to offer! I love hiking, skateboarding, biking, snowboarding, floating, road trips, and exploring BC. But I especially LOVE my time at the lake taking in the beautiful sights, sunshine and fun!!

As often as possible, she loves to travel with Perry. Favourite destination location being Mexico, where it’s hot, has crystal-clear water and white sandy beaches. But you can find her enduring even the hottest temps Mid-July in VEGAS!! When she “Hits it Big” in Vegas, a house in Mexico is the first on their shopping list! Hehee
