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

You can receive advanced laser dentistry services from Sherwood Dental Laser Dental Clinic In Oakville
Oakville ON dentists at Sherwood Dental believe strongly in offering patients advanced dental services. Laser dentistry is an effective and innovative way to treat multiple dental conditions such as decay, discoloration, and gum disease. To make your dental experience pleasant and comfortable, we offer Biolase technology in our office


Advanced laser dentistry such as the Waterlase from Biolase Technology has basically eliminated the pain that has been so closely associated with dental care. Instead of the traditional dental drill, Waterlase uses high powered, laser-energized water. There is no heat or vibration within the mouth. Instead, the Waterlase relies on speed and precision to gently and quietly cut teeth. The high-powered laser is effective at cleaning out debris and bacteria from the mouth, acting almost like a mini power-washer. Some procedures done with Waterlase can even forgo local anesthetic, making it a great option for quick, non-invasive cavity removal. If you’ve avoided the dentist out fear or anxiety, Waterlase may be the ideal dental treatment for you.

Waterlase can be used on multiple procedures including:
  • Removal of decay
  • Cavity preparation
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Cosmetic gum recontouring

Benefits of Waterlase

Advanced laser dentistry technology allows us to provide more conservative treatments. There are no stitches necessary, and patients who undergo laser gum treatment usually experience zero discomfort and swelling after the procedure. Because laser technology promotes accelerated healing, recovery is quicker and more comfortable.

If you have resisted having dental conditions treated due to anxiety, it’s time to learn more about how laser dentistry can benefit you. The team at Sherwood Dental would love to have the opportunity to discuss how your dental experience can be quick, comfortable, and convenient with Waterlase technology. If you are in the Oakville ON area, please call us today at (844) 951-8855 to schedule your consultation.

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.
