Sherwood Dental....

We are open for business! Welcome Back!!!

We have missed seeing the smiling faces of our patients for what has felt like forever. The decision back in March to close Sherwood Dental due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as unprecedented as it was, was not taken lightly and was absolutely necessary for the safety of our team, our patients, and the community around us.

Our doctors, hygienists, assistants and administration team are very proud of how Sherwood Dental's preventative and minimally invasive philosophies of dental treatment and oral healthcare have kept so many of you free from emergency or urgent need while we have been unable to see patients in person.

Having gone above and beyond the most current guidelines for dental offices in Ontario (RCDSO) by implementing extra enhanced measures and aerosol management equipment, Sherwood Dental is open and ready to provide the complete level of care that our patients have been accustomed to for so many years.

Our focus at Sherwood Dental has always been one of striving to exceed our patients' expectations. As such, we have gone to great lengths and meticulous planning to assure that our patients and our team are in an environment that keeps everyone safe and healthy at all times. From the moment that you enter our office, during the time of your treatment, and until the moment that you leave, our enhanced protocols and specialized equipment will be in place for your added protection.

We are happy and excited again to be doing what we love to everyone with their oral healthcare needs and enjoy the time that we get to spend with all of our wonderful patients.

Looking forward to seeing your smiles really soon.

Stay well and healthy,
Dr. Gaines and your Sherwood Dental Team

About Sherwood Dental, Dental Health Oakville

Sherwood Dental has been a fixture in the Oakville and Greater Toronto Area (GTA) since its establishment in 1969. The dentists, hygienists, and supporting staff believe in caring for the patient, as much as caring for their teeth. We value our patients, and stand behind our commitment to provide them with nothing but the best. This applies to areas of customer service, dental care, office environment, and staff. We strive to partner with our patients in their pursuit of pristine oral health, providing them education and services to that end. We work to deliver high quality care, offered in a timely manner in order to contribute to healthy and beautiful smiles.

Video Tour of Our Office

In order to understand Sherwood Dental, one must first understand our core philosophy of care, which is minimally invasive dentistry (MID). This term is used to describe dentistry that protects as much of the natural oral structure as possible, including teeth, gums, and bone. This philosophy is based on respecting the value that oral health plays in the role of a patient’s overall health.

We concentrate on prevention first, and offer restorative services, should the need arise. As the result of being an MID practice, we will choose the most conservative dental procedures possible to remedy a situation. Procedures and products used in our practice will contribute to the conservation of as much natural tooth structure as possible. Materials used will be reliable, safe, and strong, in order to achieve long-lasting dental restorations, which means fewer repairs and replacements in the future. At the same time, the quality of treatment will not be sacrificed, and services are designed to achieve positive outcomes for our patients, while coordinating as much as possible with natural overall wellbeing.

While we cherish our existing patients, we are always excited to meet new patients. We do not take lightly the trust placed in us, and will strive to earn the respect of our patients with every interaction. Visit Sherwood Dental to find out for yourself what makes us unique and the place that we hope you will make your dental home.

The staff at Sherwood Dental have always been awesome. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for my appt, they are very prompt and efficient. They also always try to resolve my issues the first time I mention them. I feel that Dr. Gaines does not perform procedures that are not necessary, just to make money, as he has honestly told me before that I do not need certain things, when my previous dentist told me that I did (and Dr. Gaines told me why my other dentist may have suggested it, and why he did not necessary agree). Love these guys!

Fabulous Dental Practice - First off they value your time as much as you do. The entire team is happy to work there, which shows in the way they treat the clients. The equipment is top notch. I'm very happy even if they find a cavity.

About as much fun you can have with going to the dentist. The professional and caring attitude of the dentists, hygienists, and office staff make you feel like part of their family. And if you and the Argonauts are lucky, you might get to see the Grey Cup along with a few players they look after.
