At Shine Dental, we love our patients! Whether at our main office on Provencher or at our downtown office (which is also home to our dental implant centre) on Main St. you may have noticed that we approach dental services a little differently than what you may be familiar with. We may be a little unconventional, but every change we introduce is thoroughly researched with the best interests of our patients, community, and environment.
We aim to give you the tooth truth, no matter how long it takes. We, at Shine Dental, pride ourselves in taking whatever time is necessary for you to understand all of your options. Only then can you decide which option is best for your specific situation. We are a one stop shop with 5 dentists, all uniquely trained to cover all of your dental needs, yet all working together for your overall health benefit. From preventative hygiene appointments to dental implants to secure loose dentures, we have you covered!

He is passionate about learning and helping others, which is why he continues his education worldwide and has brought hundreds of people to third world countries to offer free dental, medical and construction aid to those in need.

Throughout North America, Europe and Japan, over 240 million people are missing one or more teeth. Reports have shown that people do not intake the proper nutrients when missing teeth, simply because the foods that are chalk full of these vital nutrients are difficult to eat with missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures.
The only way to avoid bone loss is to have a tooth root or a dental implant acting as the root for the bone to fuse to. When you use dental implants for denture stabilization, not only do you avoid bone loss, but you also gain greater chewing ability as well.
