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.
Dr. Nawandeep Kalra, the dentist behind Sunshine Dental Clinic, keeps teeth and gums healthy using skills honed at Guru Nanak Dev University and New York University, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. She and her team perform services that range from routine checkups with digital x-rays to dental implants, always following the principles of minimally invasive dentistry. That means that if decay is present, they remove only the minimum amount of tissue required, working to save patients' original teeth—and their wallets—from undue stress.
