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, Ontario area dental practice offers laser dentistry treatment


Dental Practice Offers Laser Dentistry Treatment in Oakville, Ontario Area
Oakville, Ontario patients who are faced with dental needs will often ask the team at Sherwood Dental about the options available to them for treatment. In many instances, our dental team can use laser dentistry to address a wide range of dental concerns.

How are lasers used at Sherwood Dental?

The team at Sherwood Dental has reinvested into the practice to provide patients with the best, most advanced technologies for the health and appearance of their smiles. With laser dentistry, patients have access to solutions for the following concerns:
  • Gum surgeries. Laser dental treatments may involve gum surgeries, including gum recontouring. This is often done when patients are unhappy with a gummy smile, during which the gum line is brought back to expose more of the tooth and balance the appearance of the teeth and gums.
  • Periodontal disease treatments. Periodontal disease is an infection that can impact the soft and hard tissues of the mouth, including the loss of gum tissue, jawbone, and natural teeth. Lasers are used in killing bacteria and removing diseased tissue effectively and comfortably.
  • Treatment of cavities. Laser dental devices are also used in hard tissue applications. For example, a patient with cavities, or tooth decay, can have the tooth prepared for a filling. Laser devices allow for precision and minimize damage to the healthy tooth structure with a more conservative alternative to the dentist’s drill. Most patients will not need anesthetic for fillings prepared with laser devices as laser treatments are more comfortable.
  • Preparation of dental restorations. Patients obtaining dental restorations, such as composite bonding, dental fillings, or porcelain veneers, may find that lasers are used in roughening the surface of the teeth to ensure proper adhesion.
  • Root canal therapy. Conditions that result in the need for root canal therapy can also be addressed using laser treatments, which offer fewer side effects than traditional therapies.
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.
