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, ON dentist near me, offers dental cleaning treatments


Dental Cleaning at Sherwood Dental in Oakville, ON Area

Taking care of the teeth with daily brushing and flossing is just part of a good oral health routine. It is still important for patients to visit their Oakville, Ontario dentist regularly for dental cleanings and routine treatments. Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel of Sherwood Dental are here to help patients stay on track with good hygiene habits.

Why are dental cleanings important?

Just like other dental treatments, dental cleanings are vital to ensuring patients have plaque, tartar, calculus, and bacteria removed from the mouth. Brushing after every meal and flossing at least once a day can make a dramatic impact, but sometimes a deep cleaning is necessary to reach those hard-to-reach areas of the mouth that patients might be missing when taking care of the smile. Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel encourage patients to not only book a dental cleaning every six months but schedule a routine examination at the same time. While our dental hygienists at Sherwood Dental perform the deep cleaning, they can make a note of any concerns within the smile and pass this information onto the dentist. Our team works together to ensure patients have healthy smiles, and cleaning and examinations are a big part of this process.

How can I take care of my smile between dental visits?

Patients who want to improve and maintain oral health should:

  • Brush their teeth after each meal with a fluoride toothpaste and soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Floss at least once a day to remove food particles between teeth
  • Maintain routine dental visits every six months
  • Call their dentist if any changes occur within the smile, including swelling, bleeding, or pain
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.
