Where Kindness and Dentistry Meet

If you have anxiety about going to the dentist, we understand.

The dentist chair can be a scary place for a lot of people—but it doesn’t have to be!

Our dental team has been trained in the latest techniques and technologies, so we can make your visit as comfortable as possible. For example, we use painless freezing techniques to numb your mouth during treatment.

We also offer patient education, which dramatically reduces fear and anxiety about your visit. If you understand a procedure and why it is being suggested, fear of the unknown is taken out of the picutre.

If you have concerns about your current dental situation or are afraid of what might happen when you get here, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us! We’d love to help you feel better about your smile and how your teeth look, feel, and function in your mouth!

I have had a lot of dental problems in my life time. I've had over $50,000 work done on my teeth over the course of 26 years between 12 different dentists. Doctor Greenacre is the best dentist I've ever had. He is painless. he's compassionate. willing to work with you. he also has a great sense of humor. most importantly he's not there to break your wallet. His pricing is fair. Out of every dentist I've ever had he's the only one actually making a commitment to change my opinion of the dentistry field of work. which before him was quite low. I've been going to see him for over a decade now. best dentist in Canada in my opinion Out of every dentist I've ever had he's the only one actually making a commitment to change my opinion of the dentistry field of work. which before him was quite low.

I first met Dr. Greenacre when I was a student at Carleton in 1999. He has been the most exceptional, creative, knowledgeable, and holistic dentist/orthodontist I have ever met. Other dentists told me I'd have to have my jaw broken to have braces - but Dr. Greenacre put together a creative, detailed orthodontic solution that gave great results without having to break my jaw. He also is able to get to root (ha!) cause of persistent dental issues that are specific to the patient. He also really emphasizes the importance of health and lifestyle and nutrition for both general health and for dental health. I hadn't been able to see Dr. Greenacre for years because I'd moved to the west coast of the USA - but I now am seeing him as my dentist again because I was having problems no other dentist seemed to give me good solutions for. After seeing him today, I will now be happily traveling here to see him, because the care, guidance, and solutions he gives are unmatched. ❤️
