Dr. Tom loves the challenge of making dental experiences as close to fun as possible. He enjoys getting to know patients and tries to create an environment where you can feel comfortable and relaxed. He works with people of all ages, from children to seniors, including family dentistry, tooth extractions, fillings, Invisalign, and dental implants.
Becoming a dentist was Dr. Tom’s childhood dream. Before opening his own dental practice in Fonthill, he was fortunate to work alongside his childhood dentist in Burlington who inspired him to pursue dentistry and encouraged him in his career.

Dr. Tom completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery at University of Toronto and a Bachelor of Science in Physiology and Psychology from The University of Western Ontario.
