For more than seven years, Healthy Smile Dental Hygiene’s registered dental hygienist Isabel Da Silva has been living out her dream of working one-on-one with patients inside her private practice. Her exuberance for such specialties as teeth whitening, oral cancer screenings, and pit and fissure sealant applications has led her to share her expertise by teaching at dental hygiene schools and serving as a clinic coordinator at Medix School in Brampton. Efficient and organized, Isabel’s office keeps waiting to a minimum, preventing bored patients from organizing thumb twirling Battle Royales.
Champions of beautifying faces and bodies via noninvasive, advanced technologies, Renew Beauty Med Spa’s highly knowledgeable staff of medically trained and accredited physicians, nurses, and aestheticians spends their waking hours obsessing over how to better others’ skin. The staff upholds their desire to remain on the cutting edge of new procedures and products through hours of meticulous research, showcasing their findings by constantly updating the spa’s menu of services. Evidence of the team’s shared ambition can be found as they work their aesthetic magic in five offices everyday, removing unwanted hirsute patches via laser hair removal or expunging coffee, wine, and grass stains from grins during teeth-whitening sessions. As firm believers that a glowing complexion requires a commitment to healthy decisions, the team works hard to equip their patients with a posttreatment maintenance plan.
Canadian Smile Clinics knows that smiles are the first thing that people notice and so they focus exclusively on cosmetic teeth-whitening, striving to reveal patients’ most radiant grins. During in-office treatments, specialists evenly coat teeth with a highly concentrated whitening gel, and then activate its stain-lifting properties with blue LED light. At-home whitening kits come packed with everything patients need to replicate in-office whitening procedures, including mini LED activators and sinks ripped out of the office’s wall. When using the maintenance kit, results can last for up to 6 months, depending on each patient’s lifestyle and consumption of stain-causing products.
At Islington/Bloor Dentist, Dr. Roger Avila and his team of dentists, hygienists, and specialists aim to avoid complex dental operations. They aren’t shirking their duties, though—rather, the staffers are focused on preventing problems through patient education. They take the time to construct custom home-care programs for their clients after thorough examinations, teaching them to continually safeguard their health.
While patients are in the office, the specialists provide preventative care by safeguarding against tooth decay with plastic sealant, or catching problems in their earliest stages with x-rays. Should more intensive services be needed, advanced dental technology allows them to restore smiles with crowns, veneers and implants, rather than filling in gaps with miniature marshmallows. Further underscoring the importance of patient education, the staff can consult in Spanish, Portuguese, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese, as well as English.
No matter which of Polar Dental Centers’ five full-service offices a client visits, the friendly staff and doctors strive to provide a high standard of care. That's because each dentist is certified in a range of specialized treatment, including cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, and teeth straightening. The centres also administer emergency care to deal with with intense pain or dumb, wisdom-less molars.
Like many children, Joanna Wisniewska was scared of the dentist when she was young. After she moved to Canada, however, a series of positive interactions with her dentists and hygienists showed her that teeth cleaning need not be a scary experience. Dedicating herself to helping people overcome their anxiety about dentistry, she started a career as a hygienist. Now at the head of her own office, JW Dental Hygiene, she brings her caring chair-side manner to services that include exams, whitening, and calming down screaming uvulas.
