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

Sleep Apnea Snoring Treatment in Oakville Area


In Oakville Area Dentists Explains the Relationship Between Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Dentistry

Does your sleeping partner complain about your chronic snoring? While this nighttime habit might be annoying for your bed partner, it is often not a huge concern. However, in some instances, the presence of chronic snoring may be an indication of a more serious health concern called obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea, sometimes shortened to OSA, is a sleep disorder that causes patients to be unable to reach deep, restorative levels of sleep. This is due to blockages in the airways that wake them up hundreds of times in one night. Oakville, Ontario patients who have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, may be offered solutions for treatment such as the CPAP machine. Unfortunately, because these devices are uncomfortable and difficult to sleep in, many patients stop complying with treatment. Instead, the team at Sherwood Dental is pleased to offer an alternative solution with obstructive sleep apnea oral appliance therapy.

How does oral appliance therapy work?

Oral appliance therapy is a treatment option for patients who have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea through a sleep doctor or their primary care physician. While CPAP machines are effective at treating, they are often not used by patients because they are cumbersome, uncomfortable, and difficult to travel with. Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel of Sherwood Dental encourage patients to consider the advantages of oral appliance therapy. Oral appliance therapy requires patients to wear a small, comfortable mouthguard while they sleep to maintain open airways and allow patients to get a restful night’s sleep without a nasal mask and large device. It holds down the tongue and aligns the jaw to keep the airways open without the need for a CPAP machine.
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.
