I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science from the University Of Toronto (Bsc in Psychology). I then completed my degree, Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Toronto. I practice all areas of general dentistry and I treat patients of all ages.
If you spend a few minutes browsing my website you can get a bit of a feel for my practise and treatment philosophy. I am a big believer in the adage "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Many of the articles I write for this website (see my blog and patient education articles) are related to the prevention of dental disease and dental disorders through changes in diet, lifestyle and homecare.
I practise conservative dentistry and when I examine a patient I go by the adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." However if it is broke i.e. an old filling is failing or you are unhappy with your smile, I offer a range of options to suit your budget.
The practise of dentistry is constantly changing and evolving and as dentists we can offer treatment options that were unthinkable a generation ago. To this end I spend a good number of days away from the office each year learning new techniques and as well I enjoy reading about new innovations and methods of tackling problems that are patients present to us. When I am not fixing teeth I enjoy: - writing....my first children's picture book will be published Spring of 2019 - running (I ran one marathon about some years ago but now run shorter distances for fun and to keep fit) - reading about: politics, biographies, history) - watching films - camping - playing tennis I have a wonderful and supportive family. Three adult children. One daughter is a nurse, one daughter is a social worker and one son is still in university. I would be happy to meet with you to discuss any dental concerns you may have. If you have any questions or concerns our office is just a phone call or email away. Sincerely, Jeff Shnall
