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

Alternative to invasive dentistry in Oakville ON: Techniques that produce minimal trauma to tissues


Sherwood Dental Minimal Invasive Dentistry In Oakville
Tooth replacement options have come a long way from the days where extraction and uncomfortable, fake-looking “false teeth” were the only answers to the questions of what to do with excruciatingly painful infections and to fill the gap left behind.

While today’s dental restorations are lifelike and highly functional, as a practice built upon dentistry with minimal use of invasive techniques in Oakville, ON, Sherwood Dental knows the best tooth is your natural, healthy tooth.


Every effort will be made to keep the natural tooth. The Minimally Invasive Dentistry model is designed to control tooth decay and cavities. Preventive techniques include professional cleanings and recall appointments at regular intervals customised to your health history and needs. Techniques are accompanied by the latest diagnostic tools to identify and treat conditions before they progress and require costly and invasive restorative procedures.


Should decay or an accident threaten your oral health, it may be necessary to restore a part of the tooth, or the tooth structure in its entirety. The Sherwood Dental team only uses biocompatible materials that are gentle to surrounding tissues and optimise your health, knowing the mouth is linked to how the rest of your body feels and functions.

We will suggest the most conservative procedure possible to restore your tooth. Inlays and onlays are preferred to crowns, because more natural structure is retained. Maintaining a maximum amount of natural, healthy structure results in a tooth that looks, feels, and functions optimally.


A founding member of the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry, Dr. Stephen Gaines is always researching the latest technologies to support gentle, healthy approaches; for example, lasers fit perfectly with the office as they minimise trauma and unwanted side effects for patient comfort and the best outcomes.

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.
