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 Solutions at Sherwood Dental in Oakville, ON Area

Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that causes more than just snoring and restless nights. This condition can impact one’s quality of life and daily activities due to sleep deprivation. Obstructive sleep apnea results in a blockage in the airways, causing patients to awaken hundreds of times a night when they think they are getting a good night’s rest. Obstructive sleep apnea can cause daytime symptoms, which include fatigue, poor memory, difficulty concentrating, and other effects that can be caused by sleep deprivation. When diagnosed with this disorder, Oakville, Ontario, area patients are often told to use a CPAP machine. This is a device worn at night when patients sleep to keep the airway open. However, many patients do not comply with this treatment and are interested in alternative solutions. If you are seeking a treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea that eliminates the need for a CPAP machine, you can speak to Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel of Sherwood Dental.

What are some ways to address the symptoms and problems associated with obstructive sleep apnea?

While CPAPs are commonly used for patients struggling with getting a good night’s sleep, they can be cumbersome and uncomfortable. This causes many patients to stop using them, resulting in noncompliance with treatment recommendations from medical professionals. The symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea will return without effective treatment. At this point, our team may make alternative suggestions based on the cause of the condition. This may include:

  • Limiting the consumption of alcohol
  • Stopping the use of sleep medications and other pharmaceuticals that might be conflicting with sleep
  • Improving sleep patterns
  • Changing sleeping positions
  • Losing weight for patients who are over their ideal weight for their frame and height
  • Using nasal strips or sprays for easier breathing
  • Asking their dentist about an oral appliance for obstructive sleep apnea
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.
