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

    **Note: During the COVID-19 pandemic, if you believe that you have symptoms or have come into direct contact with someone who has symptoms of COVID-19 the operatory preparation fee will not be charged.
  • Payment for your appointment will be required at the end of your visit. As always, we will continue to facilitate your insurance claim submission electronically and provide the necessary information to your insurance company which will enable you to be reimbursed in a timely manner.
  • Sherwood Dental has proudly served patients from all over the Greater Toronto Area for over 30 years. We remain committed and focused on continuing to deliver the highest level and quality of service for our patients from both a clinical and a customer experience standpoint.
  • The unavoidable affects of COVID-19 on healthcare regulatory changes and global manufacturing and supply chains, at all levels, has greatly decreased the availability of personal protective equipment (PPE) and has substantially increased PPE costs. As we recognize that this has been a challenging time for many individuals, families, and businesses, we have committed to managing the majority of those additional costs thereby minimizing their effect on treatment fees.

The health and safety of our patients is our absolute priority

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.
