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 do...help 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

Prevora anti-cavity protection

Cavity Protection Toothpaste Oakville - Prevora anti-cavity protection

Sherwood Dental is the source for patients in and around Oakville, seeking the latest in dental health and treatment opportunities. We are pleased to be able to provide patients with a clear coating for the treatment of teeth in adults who find themselves at a higher risk for tooth decay along the gum line. These cavities are especially bothersome due to being difficult to restore, and the increased likelihood of multiple cavities of this type once they begin. Patients should also be aware that this type of tooth decay is associated with an increased risk for other health conditions, particularly for heart disease.

Prevora is a clear coating, containing an antibacterial agent called chlorhexidine, an ingredient which has been safely and effectively used in medical and dental settings for many years. This active ingredient works by killing harmful bacteria that live in a person’s mouth and feed the tooth decay.

A simple “painting on” of the product provides protection and prevention for long periods. The initial treatment is divided into four treatments, applied over a period of eight weeks. After that, only repeat applications are necessary at regular checkups. Over time, a patient will find Prevora to be an affordable option due to cost savings, not to mention less time and inconvenience of treatments for tooth decay.

This product does not affect the color of teeth in any way, and does not disrupt the natural health of the oral environment. Prevora is most often recommended to patients over 40 who are experiencing any of the following conditions:

  • Receding gums
  • Gum disease
  • Dry mouth
  • Repeat occurrences of tooth decay
  • Multiple fillings or crowns over a recent 10-year period

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.
