Dr. James Ahmoye, BDS, LDS, DDO

Dr. James Ahmoye was born in the Seychelles Islands in the Indian Ocean and moved to England as a youth. He completed his High School Diploma in England and Graduated from Guy’s Hospital Dental School, University of London, one of the oldest dental schools in the world. He then followed that by obtaining his Post Graduate Orthodontic degree from Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Glasgow, Scotland.
Dr. Ahmoye moved to Canada in 1980 and has been providing orthodontic as well as general dentistry services since. Dr. Ahmoye owned and operated his dental practice in Fernie from 1984-2000 and in April 2000 sold the practice to Drs. Marcela and Amos Kahane.

Always striving to improve his skills by staying current with the latest developments, Dr. Ahmoye enjoys travelling to destinations that provide Continuing Education opportunities. Using the latest technology with Invisalign and the Damon System, Dr. Ahmoye is able to treat patients of all ages. Orthodontics is more than just perfecting your smile, it also addresses function and bite issues that can cause problems with other areas of your overall health. Although Dr. Ahmoye is presently residing in Vancouver, we are thrilled that he continues to work with Dr. A.M. Kahane Inc. providing outstanding orthdontic treatment to the patients and children of the patients that he has watched grow over the years. He continues to accept new patients, and is assisted by Dr. Amos Kahane’s orthodontic knowledge in caring for his patients between his monthly visits to Fernie.
Dr Ahmoye’s personal philosophy to live a life of honesty, kindness and generosity and love for others is evident in the rapport he establishes with his patients. Call today for an orthodontic consultation appointment if you have any questions regarding your smile, your bite or the function of your teeth.

Invisalign makes it easy to straighten your teeth without bands, brackets, or wires. Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution so you can smile during as well as after treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign translates your dentist’s instructions into a series of nearly undetectable aligners. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks and your teeth will move – little by little – toward the smile you have always wanted.

Invisalign is effective in treating both teens and adults and the aligners are comfortable to wear and it doesn’t require you to change your busy lifestyle. You visit your dentist every month or two to check your progression and get new aligners. Average treatment is only about one year. Because aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favourite foods and continue brushing and flossing normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

A Testimonial:

“In my line of work I am face to face with the public so I was always self-conscious about my crooked teeth. I wanted to get them straightened, but as an adult, did not want to have a “metal smile”. When Dr. Ahmoye offered to do Invisalign I was thrilled!. The price was about the same as traditional braces and it was so quick-only 9 months compared about 24 months - and so easy for brushing and flossing! Now people comment on my smile and tell me I have nice teeth and I tell them, ‘they are still the same teeth- I just had them straightened with Invisalign!
If you’ve been thinking about it, but are not sure if you should, I would highly recommend talking to Dr. Ahmoye - he just might be able to put a smile on your face– one that you’re proud of!”

While the Damon System is still considered to be traditional orthodontics, it works with breakthrough technology that results in a fantastic smile much faster and with outstanding comfort than those systems that came before it.  This system can be used to treat patients of any age.

Fernie Dentist Dr. A.M. Kahane Inc. » General Dentistry

The mouth is a vulnerable entry point for bacteria - the same bacteria that are associated with serious medical conditions such as oral cancer, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, respiratory problems and pre-term low-birth weight babies. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary.


Fernie Dentist Dr. A.M. Kahane Inc. » Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry

In the past when mercury amalgam fillings were placed, dentists had to drill deeply into the softer dentin area of the tooth and drill undercuts into the healthy tooth even when there is no disease. These “white fillings” require only minimal natural tooth removal and not only restore decayed areas but also seal up weak spots, so decay will not penetrate the other surface grooves.


Fernie Dentist Dr. A.M. Kahane Inc. » Neuromuscular / TMD / TMJ

If these tests show that your habitual bite is a probable cause of your condition or pain, Dr Marcela will then identify a jaw position determined by the relaxed state of the muscles using a TENS machine. In addition, the dentist will be looking for a number of signs in your posture, your existing bite, appearance and condition of your teeth that might aid in diagnosis.


Fernie Dentist Dr. A.M. Kahane Inc. » Oral Surgery / Implants / Dentures

Dr. Amos Kahane uses technology which combines dentures and mini implants to reduce or eliminate those worries of the denture wearer, allowing them to speak and eat with more comfort, ease and confidence. On your first visit, xrays and impressions of the jaw and teeth may be taken to determine bone width and height, gum tissue and spacing available to accommodate the placement of the implant.
