Excellence in dentistry begins with a careful co-diagnosis and treatment plan to establish the goals we will achieve together. Communication and long-term relationships are important to us. Let us know what’s on your mind and ask questions.
We will help you realize an investment in yourself that pays dividends for a lifetime. We are caring, skilled professionals, dedicated to simplifying what is often a very complicated and confusing area of health care.
We want all our patients to be informed and knowledgeable about their dental health care, from treatment plans and services, to insurance coverage.
I was raised in Montreal where I attended elementary school and high school, Vanier College, and my first year of McGill University. I participated in mostly competitive sports through high school and played college basketball for Vanier College. I transferred to the University of Western Ontario where I completed my degree in honors physiology and pharmacology/toxicology. I completed my degree in dentistry at the University of Toronto and then did a general practice residency at Mount Sinai Hospital.
It is at Mount Sinai where I gained a lot of experience in oral surgery and IV sedation; we did rotations in the hospital through general dentistry, facial pain clinics, oral surgery, ENT, anesthesia, emergency room, and family practice.
Through this residency I became very interested in doing general dentistry with sedation and combining the use of sedation with placement of implants, crown and bridge, and general dentistry into one practice.
I moved to Peterborough where I practised for approximately 18 months, after which I relocated to Toronto where I practised for approximately nine months and then arrived in Barrie and opened a practice in August, 1987.
My three children were raised in Barrie and participated in a number of sports and are all presently attending university.
My leisure activities include golf, alpine skiing, snowshoeing, rowing and sailing.
I look forward to meeting you soon,
