Was involved in a series of experiments to investigate the effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) on bone healing. This extensive research included the evaluation of bone regenerative materials in critical sized calvarial bone defects. These investigations have shown the relative merits of HBOT by demonstrating that it enhances critical size defect bone healing.

Greetings to you my friend!
I started at this practice in 2014, and practice concurrently in Courtice (Courtice Health Centre)
My focus is comprehensive and compassionate care that starts with the patient assessment. I promote preventive dentistry in team-oriented and educational fashion, where each patient and I feel free to express and discuss our mutual needs and concerns. Since treatment plans are objective to the patient’s needs, each one that we create is customized to that individual. This helps us arrive at a plan together. In as much, our relationship (patient and provider ) is a two way road. This road allows us to work together --ultimately bringing about the best results.
