Mike

Dr. Michael Ling – Serving You Since 2007

Dr. Ling loves having the opportunity to make a difference in his patients’ lives.  A lot of people go to him with problems like missing, worn out, or broken down teeth.  Usually these are long standing issues, and they’ve finally built up the courage to do something about it.  When we can help them return to health, it impacts them every time they smile or take a bite of their favourite foods – that’s what makes it all worthwhile!

Dr. Ling loves working with patients with complex or significant needs.  Sometimes these patients have been told that nothing can be done, or their problems aren’t worth fixing, or they should just learn to deal with it.  He believes it doesn’t have to be that way.  These patients want to look and feel like they used to, and helping them return to health is very rewarding.

Born and raised in Brantford, Dr. Ling attended Central Baptist Academy, North Park Collegiate, and then Wilfrid Laurier University. He began practicing dentistry with his father, Dr. Sumner Ling, after graduating from the University of Toronto in 2007.
