Dr. Gisèle Awondzeko Fouellefack
Dr. Gisèle Awondzeko Fouellefack is the current owner of Meadows Dental Group. She studied dentistry in the renowned university of Göttingen in Germany and graduated with distinction in 2002. In 2005, she completed her doctorate degree in the department of Maxillofacial Surgery of the same university. She was granted the Alex Motsh Award for excellent practical skills and attitude toward her patients and colleagues. She also received the Golden Hedstrom File from the German dental journal Endodontie for excellency in the field of root canal treatments.
Open minded, curious, and eager to see more of the world, Dr. Fouellefack decided to take her young career to Norway, where she lived and practiced dentistry for 9 years, before continuing her journey to British Columbia, Canada in 2012, after completing the Canadian Dental Equivalency exams and National Dental Board Exams, passing with excellent results.
She started at Pitt Meadows Dental clinic in 2013 as an associate dentist and quickly built a very strong connection with her patients from Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. This led to her taking over the practice in 2016, when the previous owner retired. After a very challenging transition time, she can now say that she is very happy and grateful for the Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge dental team she built around her, very proud of what they have accomplished together so far and is excited for what is yet to come.
Dr. Fouellefack is very knowledgeable and very experienced with all aspect of modern dentistry, from the simple filling to the most complex root canal treatment, implant, or gum grafting surgery. She likes to explain all the options to her patients and allows them to make informed decisions. She is always eager to learn more and remain updated, so continues with her ongoing continuing education courses in general dentistry; in particular, the area of implant and gum grafting surgery.
Originally born and raised in Cameroon, Dr. Gisèle Awondzeko Fouellefack moved to Europe at younger age. She feels very blessed to have lived in different continents. It humbles her and allows her to connect and relate to other people regardless of their background. She finds her job very rewarding. She wakes up every day ready to go to work, knowing that she will care for her patients well being, while sharing a lot of laughter with them. She is a proud mother of two very active and dedicated young girls. Besides travelling, she also loves outdoor activities and enjoys spending time with friends and family. She is fluent in English, German, French, Norwegian, and Dshang.
While she’s giving her all to help families achieve optimal oral health, she believes in giving back to the community to make the world a better place. Dr. Gisèle Awondzeko Fouellefack looks forward to welcoming you to Pitt Meadows Dental clinic.
