A new passion of his is wake surfing on Okanagan Lake. All of his family members are avid scuba divers and, in their travels, have seen many amazing and wondrous sites underwater.
Dr. Stewart enjoys practicing orthodontics and treats a wide range of patients including, children, adults, and complex surgical/orthodontic cases. He is a “Preferred Provider” of Invisalign and finds many adults (who never consider regular braces) are now improving their smiles with this “invisible” method of straightening teeth.
