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

What laser procedures does Oakville, Ontario dental office provide?


What Laser Procedures Does Oakville, Ontario Area Dental Office Provide?
The field of dentistry continues to change thanks to advances in medical technology that happens every day. In the past, lasers were always associated with science fiction. But today, lasers are used in many areas of medicine and dentistry and are continuing to be a popular option for the treatment of various conditions. Patients in Oakville, Ontario who are searching for a dentist that uses today’s technology for diagnostics and treatment of common dental concerns are encouraged to book an appointment with the team at Sherwood Dental. Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel are committed to reinvesting into their practice to obtain the latest dental devices to perform everyday procedures.

What type of laser dentistry procedures are available?

At Sherwood Dental, we offer a wide range of laser dental procedures for new and existing patients in our community. Some of the more common procedures performed by laser include the treatment of cavities, teeth whitening, and gum contouring. Laser light can be used to perform certain procedures that used to be more invasive, and instead provide a more conservative treatment that results in less discomfort, less pain, and less bleeding. Laser treatments are also known for providing faster healing and recovery, reducing the downtime needed for more involved dental procedures.

Is laser dentistry safe?

When laser dentistry is performed with precision devices and a trained and experienced hand, it is completely safe and effective. Laser light is used in many areas of medicine and continues to improve. It is important that the professionals who administer laser treatments have the experience they need to ensure safety and efficacy. Patients may also need to wear certain eyewear during laser procedures as an extra layer of protection. Before performing any laser treatments, our dental team will advise patients as to what they can expect before, during, and after the procedure so they fully understand what will be performed during that visit to the dentist’s chair.
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.
