Our Team


Our friendly team is dedicated to children’s dentistry. That means that whatever we do, we always try to see it from a kid’s point of view. That way we can anticipate your child’s needs and concerns and provide them with the care that’s right for them.

When he graduated from Western, he moved to Montreal to complete his residency at the Montreal Children’s Hospital.
