Dr. Sadaf Fazel
Dentist, Owner

Hi! I am Dr. Sadaf Fazel. Welcome!

I was born to and raised by a family of dentists. My late father, one of the pioneers of dentistry, set a particularly great example for me in this career path. I learned from an early age that the dental office is no one’s favourite place. That is exactly why my utmost mission is to create an environment of gentle care and comfort to practice high-quality dentistry. I take pride in my ability to provide continuing care for many amazing patients; many of whom have been fearful of going to the dentist for a very long time. My goal is to make sure my patients are as comfortable as they can possibly be in the dental chair.

My passion is to create a beautiful smile that you can show off with pride and confidence. I truly believe that a healthy and confident smile can vastly improve one’s self-esteem and quality of life. To pursue this passion I have furthered my knowledge in delivering cosmetically pleasing results that are highly functional through many continuing dental education courses. I have received extensive training and experience in Invisalign having done well over a hundred cases with extremely satisfied patients.

I’m a firm believer in continuous learning, I enjoy educating my patients regarding their oral health and dental needs. I enjoy simplifying complicated concepts in dentistry with the aid of videos and presentations, in order to make my treatments easy to understand for my patients. I believe that patients should be active participants in planning for their dental care.  The vast improvements in current dental technologies have made educating patients and delivering treatment much more feasible hence we have invested in dental technology that only a handful of dentists make use of.
