About Us

Why Choose Our Practice?

At Campus Dental, we understand that many people are nervous about vising the dentist. That’s why everyone at our Toronto dental practice goes above and beyond to set our patients at ease with friendly, compassionate care.

Some of the other benefits of choosing Campus Dental include:
Gentle, Thorough Care

At Campus Dental, we get to know our patients – their preferences, their medical histories, and their unique oral health needs. We also do everything we can to reduce patient anxiety, including clearly explaining procedures beforehand and encouraging patients to bring headphones so they can listen to music during appointments.

A Modern, Hygienic Facility

In addition to thoroughly sterilizing our office and following all public health regulations, we continually invest in the latest state-of-the-art equipment. This allows us to provide comprehensive services and deliver treatment efficiently.

Clear, Affordable Fees

We understand that the cost of dental care can be difficult to manage, especially for students. To reduce confusion and ensure you get the treatment you need, we offer several in-office payment solutions designed to make dental care more accessible. We’ll also be happy to clarify the cost of treatment ahead of time.

An In-Depth Knowledge of Dental Insurance

If you aren’t sure what your dental insurance plan covers, we can help you understand your options so you aren’t surprised by any unexpected costs. We’ve been serving North Campus since 2009 and Lakeshore since 2018, so we have significant experience helping Humber students navigate their insurance policies.

Prompt, Friendly Customer Service

We know that Humber students have hectic schedules. To make getting dental care easier, we return calls promptly and offer friendly reminders about upcoming appointments. We’re also happy to answer our patients’ questions and concerns via phone or email, or during appointments.

Why is dental care important?
Oral health is part of your overall health. Untreated, tooth decay can lead to significant discomfort along with the risk of dangerous infections. Evidence also suggests that people with tooth decay and gum disease face a higher risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and other long-term complications. Experts believe this occurs because, when the teeth and gums are compromised, bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the mouth and damage other parts of the body.
What are five ways to take care of your teeth?
The five most important steps to take care of your teeth include:

1. Have a full dental exam and cleaning performed at least once every six months.

2. Brush and floss your teeth thoroughly twice a day using toothpaste that contains fluoride.

3. Reduce the amount of sugary and acidic foods and beverages you consume.

4. Protect your teeth from injury by wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard when you play sports. Likewise, avoid bad habits like chewing on ice or pens, and never use your teeth to open bottles or hold hard objects. Teeth should be used solely for chewing food.

5. If you’re prone to developing dental cavities, have a dental sealant applied and rinse with mouthwash after brushing your teeth.

What does gingivitis mean?
Gingivitis is a common condition that involves mild swelling, redness, and bleeding of the gums. People with this condition may also notice that their gums feel tender and experience recurrent bad breath (halitosis).

Gingivitis is caused by the buildup of plaque on the teeth, and it represents the earliest stage of gum disease. If left untreated, gingivitis will eventually become periodontitis, a much more serious infection of the gums. Periodontitis can lead to tooth loss and other long-term health complications, so it’s important to see your dentist promptly if you suspect you have gingivitis.

What colour teeth are healthy?
Many things can affect the colour of your teeth, such as your genetics, the foods and beverages you consume, and habits like smoking. As such, having teeth that aren’t perfectly white isn’t necessarily a sign of poor oral health. If you’re concerned about the colour of your teeth, have them professionally cleaned and examined by a dentist; this will remove any built-up plaque and tartar that may be contributing to tooth discolouration.

If you would prefer to have whiter teeth for aesthetic reasons, we also offer safe, effective options for teeth whitening at our clinic. When performed by a dentist, teeth whitening won’t harm your enamel in any way.

What are the most common dental problems?
The most common dental problems in adults are:

– Tooth decay and dental caries (cavities)
– Gum disease (gingivitis)
– Tooth sensitivity
– Cracked or broken teeth
– Receding gums
– Enamel erosion
– Teeth grinding (bruxism)

Fortunately, dentists have a number of treatments available to prevent and manage these issues. Dental decay and gum disease can often be prevented via regular brushing and flossing and twice-annual dental cleanings, while special oral health products can reduce tooth sensitivity and enamel erosion. For bruxism, mouthguards can be used at night to block tooth grinding. Cracked, broken, and decayed teeth can be repaired using dental fillings, bonding, or (in more advanced cases) dental crowns.

How can I take care of my teeth and gums at home?
To properly care for your teeth and gums at home, brush and floss at least twice per day using toothpaste that contains fluoride. Spend approximately two minutes brushing your teeth, working at a 45-degree angle while applying gentle pressure. (Brushing too hard can damage your tooth enamel, so it should be avoided.) Be sure to clean every part of each tooth’s surface: The front, back, sides, and biting surface. When you floss, carefully floss each side of the tooth by gliding the floss up and down along the tooth’s edge, starting where the tooth meets the gums.

At Campus Dental, we’re happy to provide patient education on proper brushing and flossing techniques. To learn how to take care of your teeth at home, consult our online guide to brushing and flossing, or ask us to demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques during your next dental appointment.
