About

We look forward to servicing you and your family at St. Paul Family Dental Centre!

St. Paul Family Dental Centre opened its doors in 1989, with a mission to provide the highest level of dental care for the community with a comfortable family focused atmosphere. We like to think of our patients as family, and over the years we’ve watched our patients grow up and start families of their own.

All of our experienced staff are dedicated to making you feel at home when you visit our clinic for your oral care. We pride ourselves on playing a role in the community we serve and value you as much as we do our own families.

Infection Control Methods & Technology

The health and safety of our patients is our #1 priority. We go above and beyond to provide stellar oral care and ensure that our instruments and operatories are disinfected and sterilized according to the RCDSO, CDC guidelines.

Sterilization is a complex process requiring specialized equipment, adequate space, qualified staff and regular monitoring for quality assurance.

We package and seal our instruments then sterilize them in an autoclave using steam under pressure. Biological indicators are used on a daily basis to ensure proper sterilization has been achieved.

Monitors/TVs

There’s no room for guess work! We want to ensure that you have all the information you need to make informed and educated decisions about you and your family’s oral health. That’s why we provide monitors in every exam and hygiene room. When your doctor is explaining your treatment plan, you’ve got all the facts, backed up by visuals.

Digital X-Rays

We use digital x-ray technology. Not only do the clarity of the images result in a more accurate diagnosis than your typical x-ray, but the images are produced instantly, enabling us to make quicker treatment recommendations. Digital x-rays produce 80% less radiation than your typical x-ray machine!
