About

LOVE YOUR EXPERIENCE AS MUCH AS YOUR SMILE

Care and compassion are two of the main pillars Love It Dental is built on. Like your favorite salon, your time with us will be both comfortable and efficient. You’ll get to know the dentist and hygienist who will be taking care of you and get the best treatment possible in a modern environment.

“Love your experience as much as your smile” means helping our patients have the best possible time during their appointment—especially when they’ve had poor dental experiences in the past. Whether they’re coming into the office or going out, we want our patients to share a smile with us.

What We Value

Love

It might seem cute at first glance, but to us, love as a value extends to both how we treat our patients and how we treat our team. Not only do we want patients to feel genuinely heard and cared for, we also want our team to feel the same way.

Respect

The dentist’s office isn’t a favourite place for many people—a perspective we make sure to accommodate for when our patients come in for appointments. Whether that means talking through our work before we do it or simply respecting the boundaries of others, we value making sure both our staff and patients feel comfortable coming into our office.

Trust

We strive to help our patients build positive experiences at every turn with us when they come in. That means being devoted to not only helping them resolve any current dental issues they have, but also being proactive about getting on top of any future issues that could arise as well.

Vibrant

We understand that there’s a time and place to be serious when it comes to dental work, but we also understand when we can have a little fun and be our energetic and high-spirited selves. We love to interact with each other and with our patients through sharing stories and life experiences in a friendly and often humorous way.

Join Our Team

If you see patients as people and are driven to make every person’s experience at the dentist a comfortable one, we’d love to hear from you!
