If you are looking for a dentist in Whitby or Oshawa, look no further! Located on Highway 2 in Whitby, (bordering Oshawa), our dental office offers a wide array of services including general dentistry, restorative procedures, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, and periodontics for individuals of all ages. Our office focuses on non-aggressive treatments and incorporates solutions which support your overall wellness.
Our philosophy is based on a comprehensive care approach because we believe that there is a strong connection between your oral and your overall health. As a result, your first appointment will include a thorough medical review of your overall health – not just your teeth.
Our resident dentist, Dr. Peter, as he is affectionately known, has been serving the Whitby & Oshawa communities for over 15 years. A graduate of the University of Toronto, Faculty of Dentistry, Dr. Peter has evolved professionally to take a special interest in orthodontics (braces) and TMJ treatments (headaches, migraines, neck pain, etc.). He is also passionate about achieving optimal overall health through a combination of proper oral care, structural jaw alignment, diet and nutrition to ward off or fight chronic ailments.
Dr. Peter diagnoses treatments based on each patient’s unique needs with the goal of maximizing their oral and overall wellbeing. All treatment recommendations are derived from careful and lengthy examination. He is actively involved in your treatment and encourages each patient to be as well.
Last but not least, our staff members, who are all members of the Whitby and Oshawa communities, are trained to be sensitive to your particular needs to make your dental experience a positive one.
We are keen to provide our patients the latest in modern technology to ensure their safety and comfort.
Our technologies include:
• Laser: Our office in Whitby/Oshawa is one of the very few dental offices in the province to use the NDI Fotona Lightwalker. An ideal solution for children or adults who are afraid of needles and dislike the traditional drilling noises associated with many procedures, laser dentistry makes drills and needles things of the past. Furthermore, it speeds up healing time and reduces the risk of infection.
• Digital X-rays: Digital radiography makes x-rays a much safer procedure for patients as well as healthcare providers administering them due to the absence of chemicals used to develop old fashioned films. Digital sensors can reduce exposure to radiation by 75% or more. These modern x-rays can be viewed on the computer within seconds and emailed easily.
• Air Abrasion: This drill-less technology is one of Dr. Peter’s favorite tools for restoration procedures. The need for freezing is minimal and the procedure minimizes the use of the drill along with its loud whining noise. With the use of powder and water, we can blast your cavities away!
• Intra-Oral Camera: Intra-oral cameras enable the dentist to identify a patient’s intra-oral problems and share them with the patient in real time. This helps the patient understand what is going on in their oral cavity and make an informed decision regarding future treatment.
