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

I can honestly say with complete honesty that I've never, ever been to a medical office and encountered such caring and professional staff!!! The staff are so caring and compassionate! Dr. Gaines redid all my veneers and I have to say, I just couldn't believe the work he did! What a talented dentist! Gifted with patience and an artistic vision, Dr. Gaines did everything to absolute perfection and wouldn't stop until he did! With an unfortunate and unforeseen problem that I encountered, Dr. Gaines and the staff at Sherwood Dental contacted me each and every day to see how I was doing! Even on off hours, Harriett would call me to see how I was! Totally unbelievable! It has truly been a positive experience and there is no doubt in my mind that I would strongly recommend Dr. Gaines and Sherwood Dental to friends and family!
Thanks Dr. Gaines and staff for giving me the perfect smile! You've regained my confidence! Mary Rose Dziadyk
I truly can't say enough about the fantastic care and service we received today. I have been a very long trme client of Dr. Gaines, and have always received great care from his ENTIRE team. For the first time, I had an appointment booked for a 2 year old foster child of ours that needed a consult on a spot on a tooth we were concerned about. Although their schedule was very full as usual, they were able to fit us in to see Dr. Gaines asap. I was extremely impressed with the visit from start to finish. Harriet greeted us with enthusiasm and such kindness. Dr. Gaines was awesome with our foster son and gained his trust enough to allow him to do a great exam of his teeth without fuss. We received a thorough explanation in writing as to what was found and any further treatment required. Natalie was great as we checked out explaining the future care they can offer our foster child moving forward. As I said, I can't say enough about the CARE they have for ALL of their patients.
I think this is the best dental office anywhere!!! I am confident that they give me and my family the best possible dental care, with all latest technologies and expertise yet are also very caring, friendly and super accommodating and always ready to serve with a smile. They also have a large nicely decorated and comfortable waiting area, although, in 20 years of coming here I have never had to wait more than a few minutes for my appointment, but I am able to really relax here while I wait for my other family members being seen. I can't say enough about how great Sherwood Dental is. Roula Theiss
