Meet our Dentists
One Team for Everything You Need
Getting complete dental care used to mean seeing multiple different dentists and specialists, and multiple visits to offices all over town (or even outside of Brantford!). Good luck trying to keep all the appointments and treatment plans and costs straight!
If you have a family with a wide range of dental needs from baby teeth and braces, to implants and dentures, things can be even more complicated. Add on top of that trying to fit dental care into a busy family schedule and it’s easy to worry about whether you are making the right decisions for your loved ones.
That’s why our dentists and in-house specialists are committed to making things easy for you and your family. We have everything you need. All under one roof.
