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

Oakville, ON dental office, provides family and cosmetic dentistry solutions


Family And Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions In Oakville

A beautiful smile exudes confidence and is a highly coveted result of quality dental work. Patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their smile may be unsure as to what cosmetic dentistry has to offer. At Sherwood Dental, we provide family-friendly services for new and current patients of the practice. This includes aesthetic work geared towards smile enhancement. Oakville, Ontario area patients are welcome to schedule a consultation appointment to learn more about the cosmetic dentistry services provided at our facility.

What are some of the cosmetic dentistry solutions available at Sherwood Dental?

Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel of Sherwood Dental in Oakville, Ontario, are excited to offer a wide range of aesthetic treatments for patients in the community. Below are just a few of the more common cosmetic work requested by patients at our office:

  • Inlays and onlays – inlays and onlays are porcelain restorations that offer a conservative way to address tooth damage from injury or decay.
  • Tooth-colored fillings – instead of using dark fillings made of silver amalgam, our team uses composite resin as an alternative for a more attractive option.
  • Dental bonding – using tooth-colored resin bonded to the teeth, patients can disguise imperfections such as spaces between teeth, broken and chipped teeth, or permanently stained teeth.
  • Porcelain crowns – dental crowns are commonly used as a way to protect and strengthen a tooth that might be severely damaged from trauma, previous dental treatments, or large areas of decay.
  • Orthodontia – patients considering a more attractively aligned smile may want to ask the team at Sherwood Dental about their options when it comes to orthodontic work.
  • Porcelain veneers – disguising imperfections on the anterior or front teeth can be achieved using custom-fabricated porcelain veneers.
  • Professional teeth whitening – bleaching the natural tooth structure to whiten the smile is easily performed as an in-office treatment or with the use of a special, professional-grade take-home whitening kit.
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

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.
