Located overlooking the northern shore of Lake Ontario, the Toronto Lakeshore area is in the midst of a massive multi-decade revitalization effort by local government agencies under the banner of the Waterfront Toronto program. Thanks to their work, the area deserves a visit both by tourists who are new to the city, and by locals who haven’t been there in years who may want to see the progress. According to Waterfront Toronto, the revitalization effort is one of the largest infrastructure projects in North America and one of the largest waterfront redevelopment initiatives ever undertaken in the world.

If you’re looking for a great dentist in downtown Toronto, The Toronto Dental Clinic should be first on your list. Toronto Dentist, Dr. June, has been practicing for many years in a variety of clinical settings, and he applies that experience to a full range of dental services including basic cleanings, fillings, x-rays, crowns, bridges, root canals, tooth removals/extractions, treatment for periodontal disease, and sealants.

Dr. June achieved his goal of becoming a dentist in 1993 after many years of dental school, then immediately went to work in the field. “I started out in a large dental clinic, which was great for getting exposed to a wide variety of patients and to interact and learn from other dentists. However, it didn’t always allow me to give the personalized care that I felt the customer deserved. Since I have opened my solo practice, I am able to do that and provide great quality dental care to my own high personal standards.”

Dr. June opened his own practice in 2001 and since then has become one of the leading cosmetic dentists in Toronto. Dr. June takes great pride in his eye for aesthetics and makes sure to spend a lot of time with patients to understand their individual needs and medical history before designing a dental care plan tailored to their needs.

To do this, he and his staff attend a number of dental seminars and workshops throughout the year.

He is an active member in the Canadian Dental Association and has written several articles for the Oral Health Journal, Canada’s leading health journal.

Dr. June says that he applies his philosophy of quality dental care in a comfortable environment to all aspects of his practice. “We do everything we can to make the visit as painless as possible. Dentistry has evolved tremendously over the last 50 years and it doesn’t have to hurt as much as it used to. We take every effort to make sure we care giving great quality dental care at affordable rates to our patients.”
