About Us

Meet Dr. David Monaghan

Dr. David Monaghan, General Dentist


My childhood was spent in Edmonton, so it wasn’t a huge venture to trek across BC to the University of British Columbia, but it was an exciting one! There, I achieved my Bachelor of Science and then my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. I loved our city and its people so much, I decided to stay. I’m so glad I did!

Healthcare Philosophy

When I create treatment plans for you, I do so as though I was working on my own mouth. I want you to have the same care that I demand for myself – the same quality, comfort, and convenience. I promise to use the most conservative techniques that will provide solutions for your smile as it’s always my goal to help you stay as healthy as possible. I love working with my hands, and that is why I’m able to learn and apply new techniques from around the world … and I love it!


When not at the practice, I love watching and playing sports, but of course, my prime focus is spending time with my family and my friends. I love our community – the people and the place – and spend as much time here as possible. It’s young and vibrant … and it keeps me that way too!

Meet Dr. Don Morris

Dr. Don Morris, General Dentist


Growing up in Red Deer, Alberta, I always had excellent experiences with my childhood dentist. Seeing how happy his patients were motivated me to follow in his footsteps. After earning my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Alberta I continued my dental education there, earning my doctorate in 1975.

Healthcare Philosophy

When I help someone achieve their goals for a beautiful healthy smile, it brings joy to my heart and with it a great sense of accomplishment. My first goal is to always understand your wants and needs first so I can give you choices in materials and treatments that support these goals and wishes. Your smile is the window to your soul and I want you to feel confident with your choices.

Home Life

My wife Pauline and I are blessed with three children, four grandchildren, and a black miniature poodle named Scrappy. His name suits him – once when we were sailing he fell off the bow and because of his colouring and the weather was nearly invisible in the water. We were able to stop the kids from jumping in to save him while I grabbed him from the stern and pulled him back into the boat.

About Our Team

Along with our doctors, our team’s mandate is to provide your family with quality, aesthetic, and cosmetic dental treatments in a warm and relaxing environment.

Community Involvement

Our community is important to all of us at Fifth Avenue Dental Centre because we live, work, and play here. And because our patients are an important part of why our community is so special we host a Patient Appreciation Event each year to say thank you. Good food, and fun for the entire family is always had by all!
