Just as it was prior to COVID, your health and safety will remain our primary concerns. We have made great investments into our facilities and into our protective equipment for the team to ensure a safe environment for everyone. For your safety and ours, we will follow the new guidelines from the British Columbia Provincial Health Authority, the British Columbia Dental Association and Worksafe BC.
You will notice several additions to our infection control procedures at your next visit. Some of the steps include:
- All patients must be pre-screened for COVID-19 symptoms and exposure prior appointments and upon arrival at the office,
- Upon arrival our patients will be required to maintain hand hygiene by using hand sanitizer and will be provided with face masks,
- Social distancing and new PPE standards require us to see fewer patients at a time, leaving larger time intervals between each appointment and limiting the number of patients at any time,
- Additional air purification systems with HEPA filters are installed in operating rooms.
We are taking every possible precaution to ensure that you, your family, and our staff stay healthy.
Thank you for your understanding and best regards,
Dr. Jim Guild, Dr. Jed Snatic, Heather Lang, RDH, Dr. Michael Marianovski, and Dr Jed Snatic

Welcome Dr. Michael Marianovski
We are happy to introduce Dr. Michael Marianovski. Dr. Michael Marianovski attended York University for his undergraduate and Master’s education. He then received his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree (DDS) from the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario.
Dr. Marianovski is passionate about dentistry and has been pursuing continuing education and externships throughout his career. Recently he participated in a mission trip to Jamaica where he provided emergency dental care to an underprivileged population.
Originally from Russia, he grew up in Israel before moving to Ontario as a teenager. Dr. Marianovski recently moved to Invermere to pursue his outdoor passions of rock climbing, snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking and, most recently, whitewater kayaking.
“I pride myself on providing comprehensive, patient-centered care. I strongly believe in educating my patients and allowing them to make informed decisions about their dental care. I enjoy all aspects of family dentistry with a focus on Oral Surgery, Prosthodontics and Paediatrics.”
Welcome Dr. Katelyn Colwell
Dr. Colwell knew from an early age that she wanted to be a dentist. She was mentored by her aunt, who was also her family dentist growing up. Dr. Colwell completed her Bachelor of Health Sciences Honours degree at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, and graduated from Schulich School of Dentistry at Western University in London, Ontario.
During undergrad and dental school, Dr. Colwell spent four of her summers tree planting in both British Columbia and Ontario. Dr. Colwell also spent a winter season snowboarding in Niseko, Japan. These experiences drove Dr. Colwell to the mountains to pursue her dental career.
Dr. Colwell participated in multiple externship programs in both Canada and the United States – receiving unique learning experiences in oral maxillofacial surgery, prosthodontics, and with rural paediatric populations.
“Thank you for choosing me to be your dentist. I hope to earn your trust by providing the highest quality care, specific to your needs and desires. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family, and providing a welcoming and comforting dental experience.”
