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

Laser Dental Treatments Near Me In Oakville
At Sherwood Dental, we have invested in our patients by purchasing the latest technologies for our Oakville, ON practice. That includes integrating modern methods into our facility to improve healing and outcomes. We are excited to announce laser dental treatments at our practice using a dental laser called the Waterlase Biolase.

What is laser dentistry?

The focus of laser dentistry is to offer solutions for common dental problems with laser light energy. Lasers are used in several areas of medicine and continue to be an excellent solution for many medical concerns. It has also been integrated into dentistry as a treatment for soft and hard tissues in the smile. That includes gum tissues and teeth. The Waterlase Biolaser device used in our practice offers solutions for many dental problems and continues to be the first line of defence against periodontal disease and tooth decay.

What is laser dentistry used for?

There are many approaches that may integrate laser technologies. For hard tissues, the Waterlase Biolase device can be used for the teeth and bone. The device can treat cavities by preparing the area, removing damaged tooth structure, and disinfecting the inner canals before placing a dental filling. Soft tissues, such as the gums, can also be treated with the Waterlase Biolase, allowing the dentist to cut gum tissue to contour them or kill bacteria associated with periodontal disease. Regardless of how it is used, our team has extensive training and experience in using laser dentistry to our advantage in treating patients.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Advantages of laser dentistry include:
  • Fewer side effects
  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Convenient treatment of bacteria and infection
  • Less bleeding following procedures
  • Protection of healthy tissue due to precision cuts
  • Preparation of teeth for fillings and root canals
  • Faster recovery times
  • Faster and more precision treatments

Does laser dentistry hurt?

Laser dentistry is far more comfortable for patients and reduces the need for anesthesia in some instances. Our team is well-versed in using laser devices for dental work and can ensure comfort from start to finish with our gentle techniques. Patients can still ask about sedation methods if they are dealing with dental anxiety before their appointment.
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.
