Welcome to Otter Point Dental

We know how to put smiles on faces. After looking after people around Sooke for 7 years, we understand exactly what you need—an approachable environment where you can find treatment options that fit your needs and budget. We’ve recently changed our name of our Sooke Dentist office from Academy Dental Sooke to Otter Point Dental. But don’t fret – you’ll still be greeted by the same talented team when you come in for your next visit. Please note: 1195 Fort Street is still an Academy Dental location.
