Dental Team Approach

It is impossible for one dentist to have expertise, advanced training and experience in all areas of dentistry. That's why at Riverpark we exercise a TEAM approach to dentistry. Even though you get to choose the dentist you prefer for your everyday general/family dental needs, there are 8 dentists who are available if needed. One of them is a specialist and 5 are foreign-trained specialists that are available to provide an expertise in a specific area. Foreign-trained specialists are all qualified as general dentists in Ontario and have additional years of studies and training from abroad. The advantage of foreign-trained specialists is that they bill at the same fees as general dentists. It is common for our team of dentists to discuss a complex case and list of treatment options prior to suggesting a treatment. Our internal reciprocal agreement between the dentists gives you the opportunity to discuss your particular situation with the other dentists at no extra cost.
