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

Best Laser Dentistry treatments at Sherwood Dental in Oakville

Sherwood Dental focuses on practices using the least invasive means possible to deliver optimal health to Oakville dental patients. One way we do this is with the use of laser dentistry. Our practice has invested in dental lasers to provide our patients with gentle therapy for a vast array of dental procedures and treatments. We believe technology is extremely effective and very beneficial to the wellbeing of our patients. We have different types of lasers, which are designed for specific use in soft tissue or hard tissue applications.

Lasers used for soft tissue procedures are appropriate for treatments involving such areas of the mouth as the gums and the inside of the cheeks. They can be targeted very precisely to the area that is in need of treatment, allowing healthy tissue to be left undisturbed. This provides a patient with a more comfortable experience overall, as well as improved outcomes and healing. Procedures appropriate for this type of laser dentistry include gum surgeries, gum contouring, and periodontal treatments. Soft tissue lasers work well to kill bacteria and remove diseased tissue, providing a more hygienic environment.

Hard tissue lasers are used for many procedures involving teeth and bone. These lasers can also be accurately targeted to a specific area, minimizing any damage to healthy tooth structure. Pain is often greatly reduced, which means less anesthesia is necessary for the patient. They also remove the sound of the drill from the equation, which can be a source of anxiety for many patients. These state-of-the-art lasers work well in dental settings, resulting in a well-prepared surface for dental treatments, such as fillings, bonding, and root canals. A patient can expect fewer side effects when treated with laser dental procedures than most traditional dental therapies.

What our patients say about Laser Dentistry Treatment

The team at Sherwood Dental provides an unparalleled dental experience. The admin staff and Harriet are so accommodating and booking appointments is easy and stress free. The hygienists and dentists are amazing and soooo good with kids! My kids actually look forward to going to the dentist. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they always leave with awesome stickers and a dental loot bag. Thanks Sherwood Dental, for keeping a (bright and healthy) smile on our faces.

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.
