Meet The Doctor

Dr. Jeff Shnall

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 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 home care.   
 
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 was published in June 2019
- Walking 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
- Spending time up north
-  Playing tennis 
​I have a wonderful and supportive family.  My partner Alison, three adult children that I am very proud of. 
​ 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
