4) To have your dentist care about you and make you feel good?
We will call you after all major procedures to make sure everything is ok.

You are in good hands…emergencies are handled promptly no matter how busy we are.
And most importantly, we aim to make your visit as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
5) Availability and convenience?
When you work or live downtown, your time is valuable. Because all services are done at this office, you don’t have to book multiple appointments in different offices, saving you time.
When you have an emergency, we are available and are open bright and early 5 days a week.
6) To ease your fears and help you, even if you are nervous?
If you fear coming to the dentist, you are not alone. Whatever your fear about coming to see us, let us know.
Just some of the ways we make you feel comfortable here:
a) We will walk you through the entire procedure to make sure you know what’s going to happen.
b) We will tell you what to expect in terms of freezing but we do try to make it as painless as possible – which a lot of people are most anxious about.
c) We encourage you to bring an mp3 player to listen to your favourite music.
7) Sterilization of the equipment that will be used on you?
a) All Instruments are placed into a cassette and then washed and disinfected in a special dental machine
b) Instruments in the cassettes are then wrapped, and sterilized and steamed in a autoclave
c) Spore tests are done on the autoclave monthly to make sure that there is 100% sterilization.
d) Instruments such as handpieces that can’t be immersed in liquid are wiped with a surface disinfectant then wrapped and also placed in the steam autoclave.
e) Hard surfaces like countertops, hoses, etc. are wiped with a surface disinfectant twice – the first time to remove debris; the second, to disinfect.
8) Doesn’t make you feel bad for not being the perfect patient?
We understand if you cannot look after your oral health perfectly all the time. We are here to help you, keep your mouth as healthy as you can without being judgemental. Most of the time, it’s not as bad as you might think!
