Meet the Doctors
Dr. Omar Shehab

Dr. Shehab makes it a priority to foster a warm and comfortable environment for all of his patients, while providing optimal comprehensive care. He is committed to refining his skills and to staying current with the latest techniques and technologies by regularly attending continuing education courses.
In his spare time, Omar enjoys hiking, traveling, snowboarding, and spending time with his friends and family.
Dr. Hadia Memon
Dr. Hadia Memon spent five years in Australia completing her education in Dental Surgery. After her adventures in the Land Down Under, she moved back home to British Columbia and relocated from the Lower Mainland to Vancouver Island.
Dr. Hadia’s primary focus is patient-centred care. She specializes in managing children and adults with dental anxiety. Her calm, caring approach puts patients at ease and changes their perspective on dental treatment. Dr. Hadia believes in the practice of early prevention and educating her patients about their oral health. She offers sedation dentistry as well as Invisalign treatment – ask her about these treatments for your dental care!
Dr. Hadia loves staying current with dental technology and taking continuing education courses. Out of the world of dentistry, she loves hiking, travelling & doing yoga!
The whole team at Cowichan Valley Dental is amazing, and I have never trusted a dental office more. They are professional while still being fun, and my teeth have never looked better 🙂
