Providing Comprehensive Dental Care

I welcome you to our dental practice website and encourage you to browse these pages to discover why so many people you know have chosen us for their dental care. Our practice philosophy is to provide you the highest level of patient care in a safe, comprehensive and friendly environment.

We use the latest technologies such as digital x-rays, digital impression scanners, and dental lasers to provide your care. If your goal is to improve the appearance of your smile we will be happy to discuss your many options. We will help you understand how your oral health affects the other health issues you have. We are privileged in serving St. Thomas and Elgin County since 1984 and look forward to your next visit.


June 1, 2020 

I am glad to announce that dental offices across Ontario have been re-opened by the order of the Government and Chief Medical Officer of Health. Previously from March 15-May 31st we were only seeing patients on an emergency basis; many of you with broken teeth from the stresses of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are taking steps to re-open by implementing protocols to address the safety of our patients and staff. The following practices will be followed to provide you the confidence that our office is a safe, thorough and friendly environment:

1. Covid-19 screening questionnaire when the appointment is made and at the appointment
2.Temperature screening
3. Hand sanitizing station and masks

Please be patient as we reschedule all appointments, as we cancelled over 2,100 patient visits during the past 11 weeks.

Our staff looks forward to seeing your smiling faces again and welcome any questions you may have regarding your upcoming visits.

Dr. Derek Haruta


Covid-19 Update

March 16, 2020

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, at the direction of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons, all dental offices in Ontario are closed except for dental emergencies. This change will be in effect until the first week of April at which time the college will reassess the situation. Our office will contact you to reschedule your appointment once it has been deemed safe to see all patients. If you have a dental emergency please contact us and we will schedule an appointment to see you. Thank you for your understanding.

The new Elmdale Health Centre helped attract six new family doctors to St. Thomas, but more are needed

Emergency Care

In the event of a dental emergency we will be happy to take your call. Our Dental Receptionists are specially trained to assess the problem and advise you on the next best step. Your concerns or questions are never too trivial for us to address.
