With over 18 years of global dental experience, with the last 13 being in Canada, Sharmila believes that dentistry is not only a profession but is also the art and science of changing people’s lives and attitudes towards their life. This passion allows her to focus on precise details that are critical to creating a natural looking transformation. Since our clinic is family-owned, means she treats you like family and is adored by her patients for this.

She graduated from her Bachelors of Dental Surgery ( India ), Diploma in Dental Hygiene ( Canada ) and the National Dental Examining Board of Canada. She has devoted her career to educating and treating her patients with gentle and minimally invasive dental care. She loves continuing education and to stay current with the latest technology and research on the safest dental methods and materials available. She has gained a wealth of skill and knowledge in cosmetic and general dental procedures, basic implants, cosmetic bonding, anterior esthetics and management  of TMD (Temporo-Mandibular Joint Disorders). She is also a certified provider of Invisalign®.

Being passionate about dentistry with a friendly and caring approach, her goal is to help nervous patients by making them feel relaxed so that she can provide them the dental care they need. She especially loves working with children.

Since it is very important for her that all her patients get what they want and more, during their first visit, Sharmila makes sure she takes time to talk and know the patient so that she can ensure that she is catering to thier needs, so that she is not offering treatments they are not interested in, but also not missing out on something they desire.
