Our Dentists
  • Bruce Tranter, DDS

    General Dentist

    Dr. Bruce Tranter has been running Vic West Dentistry- Vic West Health Services in Victoria for over 25 years. His main area of focus during his career has been restoring smiles through various cosmetic dentistry services.

    He loves to see the genuine happiness in a person’s smile when their confidence is returned to them. Dr. Tranter's interest in dentistry started at an early age. He knew his passion was the satisfaction of making people smile. He loves being able to transform someone’s life through enhanced dental function and the aesthetic transformation of teeth is amazing – and make the best smile possible!

    Originally from Collingwood, Ontario, he pursued his passion for Dentistry at McMaster University. By 1985, he graduated from the University of Toronto in Dentistry and worked with the Canadian Armed Forces for several years.

    In 1989, Dr. Tranter's passion for the outdoors brought him to the beautiful West Coast. He opened Victoria’s Westside Dentistry, now known as Vic West Dentistry - Vic West Health Services, and has been helping patients in Victoria ever since. In his spare time, he likes to run trails in the Victoria area and wilderness camp in Olympic National Park.

  • Dr. Markus Gumbmann, DMD

    General Dentist

    Dr. Gumbmann spent nine years as a general dentist in Toronto before moving back to his birth country of Germany. There he decided to follow his passion in root canal therapy, doing the German equivalent of a special program with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Endodontologie und Traumatologie (DGET). He worked in Germany for 11 years, primarily on a referral basis focused on, but not limited to root canals.

    Dr. Gumbmann has worked with a dental microscope since 2010. This has allowed him to see under high levels of magnification and given him the ability to see the anatomy of the teeth.

    He was a member of the European Endodontic Society until moving back to Canada at the start of 2020. He now is a member of an Endodontic study club in hopes of continual improvement of his skills and is excited to bring his vast experience in patient care to our practice.
