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

A Dental professional offers laser gum contouring treatment for a gummy smile


Best Dental Laser Treatment Near Me In Oakville
When you smile, do you notice more gum tissue than teeth? Do you find yourself self-conscious about the appearance of your smile when you meet others? Do you feel as though your smile is not in balance between gum tissue and your teeth' shape and size? Many patients who have a gummy smile are unaware that there is a solution to their concerns: laser gum contouring. The team at Sherwood Dental is pleased to provide laser treatments for individuals who want to create harmony and balance between the teeth and gums.

What is laser gum contouring?

In the past, contouring the gum line required a dentist to use a scalpel and other special instruments to remove excess gum tissue and lengthen the tooth crown's visible portion. This was often not a comfortable treatment and one that required the necessary time for healing and recovery. With continued advances in dentistry, patients can now work with the team at Sherwood Dental to obtain laser gum contouring. With laser light, the treatment can be performed quickly, easily, and with less pain and bleeding as seen with more traditional methods. Our team of professionals will often recommend gum contouring using laser therapies because it is:

  • Fast
  • Effective
  • Precise
  • Less invasive
  • Natural-looking

Who is a candidate for laser gum contouring?

Patients with a gummy smile or an uneven gum line due to past periodontal disease may find that laser gum contouring is appropriate for their needs. To determine candidacy, Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel recommend that patients book a consultation visit at the office. During this appointment, patients can consult with our team about the imperfections in their smiles that bother them and work with a professional to develop an affordable and effective treatment plan.
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.
