  • Dentistry from the Heart – a program that has spread around the world will take place in our neighbourhood this year, for the first time.

    This program is designed to provide a day of free dental services for anyone who needs it.

    On Sunday July 20/14, free dental services will be provided by Sheppard Village Dental, Suite 208, 4651 Sheppard Avenue East on the southeast corner of McCowan & Sheppard.

    People needing dental services can simply go to the Sheppard Village Dental office on July 20 and will be treated on a ‘first come’ basis, throughout that day.

    Sheppard Village Dental guarantees that a minimum of 50 people will receive free dental treatment at their office, on July 20

    Twelve dentists, dental hygienists and staff – all volunteers – will provide the services that day.

    With a growing number of Canadians lacking dental insurance, Dr. Malkit Brach and his associates believe this will be an effective way to address some potential health problems, while also giving back to our community.

  • People of all ages can and do have crooked teeth - and related issues of great concern.

    One breakthrough in dentistry is a system of customized, clear, invisible retainers that can solve crooked teeth issues in about a year – without braces.  Worn all day, they can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing.  Invisalign retainers can straighten crooked teeth, ensure a better bite alignment and meet both dental and cosmetic treatment goals.
