” it is our sincere desire to treat every individual with the utmost compassion, understanding and respect. We are devoted to providing you with the highest Standard of dental care in a warm and friendly environment with unsurpassed Integrity, sincerity and professionalism. “
I graduated in the top ten percentile from the University of McGill in 1987, after excelling in achieving my undergraduate degree in biochemistry from Concordia University in 1983. I have had many enriching experiences throughout my ongoing dental career including serving the aboriginal communities of Northern Quebec.
My special area of Interest in dentistry is biological dentistry, I have had extensive training in Cosmethic dentistry, Orthodontics and TMJ, and Sleep Apnea and Snoring. My dental philosophy is conservative and non-invasive with an emphasis on multidisciplinary networking with physicians and other health care providers on an ongoing basis.
My entire team is well trained with a combined experience of over 60 years. The staff is dedicated to providing our patients with comfortable and personalized care.
I strongly believe every one deserves the best dentistry can offer, and it is my professional responsibility to offer the best comprehensive treatment plan to all my patients.
Over the years I have become more and more a believer of health restoration methods oriented towards total mind and body care rather than the mere suppression of symptoms. For example, we know very well now that stress can suppress our immune system and this in effect will compromise our response to disease. Stress can also have a traumatic effect in the mouth ranging from breakdown of the tooth’s supporting structure to extreme wear on the teeth .
In my office, my Initial Exam is very holistic in nature in order to find out about the whole patient rather than just the teeth. A thorough file of personalized information is gathered including the medical and dental history of the patient.
I also believe in the proper use of high-tech dental equipment in dentistry. Using high-tech equipment for diagnostic and educational purposes during the initial examination means that my patients have more comfort physically and mentally with the procedures they are receiving or learning about.
My state-of-the-art digital x-ray equipment enables me to instantly display your x-ray with the help of a computer system. The Digital Radiography system reduces x-ray radiation by as much as 90%. It is also environmentally friendly, the images captured by digital radiography require no hazardous processing chemical or film.
Another high-tech equipment at our office is the use of Phase Contrast Mircoscopy to evaluate and assess bacteria content in oral flora. This has helped us and many patients to see on the computer monitor the active bacteria’s role in their gum disease.
Pictures taken with a digital and intra-oral camera allows the patient to see how their teeth appear from inside and out and to have a visual record of the progress made. This technology is particularly valuable for cases of cosmetic improvements. In these cases, my lab uses the digital & Clinical information I supply to produce a diagnostic wax-up of the case of the expected result of the treatment being planned. Before treatment begins, the patient has the opportunity to see, how their teeth will look at the end of the treatment.
