Manny is a member in good standing of both the Manitoba and Canadian Denturist Associations, as well as the International Federation of Denturists.
Manny Minuk was raised in the denture industry. As the son of founder Joe Minuk, Manny would frequent the clinic and began helping out at a very young age. After working at the clinic for several years, he was hooked on seeing the impact the clinic had on people’s lives. Seeing the joy on people’s faces after their smile makeover was Manny’s motivation to register to become a Denturist at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in Edmonton, Alberta in 1998.
With existing experience, Manny quickly excelled at NAIT and graduated in 2000. Since 2002, Manny has served on the executive board of the Denturist Association of Manitoba and continues to push the industry forward.
Manny has extensive training in complex implant restorations and anti-snoring solutions, as well as digital denture design. His commitment to providing the best denture care has led him to look closely at the advantages of technology. Technology has greatly improved care for patients seeking dental crowns and bridges. After a quick 3D scan is taken on-site, a milled crown can be delivered in the same day. Why didn’t this exist for dentures? Manny’s frustration with the lack of similar technology in the denture industry was shared by other colleagues around Canada. Together, Manny and his colleagues became experts in 3D scanning, digital denture design (CAD/CAM), 3D printing and milling and began to develop their own solutions. The transformation in the denture industry has begun and Manny and his team are proud to be part of ground-breaking technology developed right here in Canada.
Taking the foundation that his father Joe built since 1977, and making it his own by adopting technology and innovation is Manny’s purpose and strategy to continue to deliver world class care to the residents of Manitoba.
In his spare time Manny enjoys playing guitar in a rock band, hockey, cheering on the Jets, and spending time with his wife and four kids.
