A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR CARING TEAM
Dr. Judy Sturm
Originally from Toronto, Dr. Judy Sturm has more than three decades of experience in dentistry. She obtained her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree after studying at the University of Toronto and New York University Dental School. After graduating, she completed a fellowship at Toronto General Hospital. As a general dentist, her experience and training provides her the opportunity to offer cosmetic dentistry in Toronto.
It’s all about building relationships and transforming smiles for Dr. Sturm. Evidence of this is the fact she has repeatedly been voted Best Dentist in Toronto by readers of NOW magazine. She gets tremendous personal satisfaction helping anxious patients feel more comfortable in her dental chair – and her patients love her for it! With each patient, Dr. Sturm takes the time to understand their needs to achieve the desired outcome. Each appointment is special – and it brings Dr. Sturm great joy when patients see their smile after her work is done.
Dr. Sturm is married to Simon and is the mother of five great kids. Joshua, Aliza, Nomi, Shail, and Michelle have all “flown the coop” and are living across North America. (For the record, all her children are ridiculously good-looking and have fabulous smiles!) When she doesn’t have her hands full as a midtown dentist in the heart of the city, Dr. Sturm enjoys travelling and spending time with her grandchildren. Her favourite pastimes are cooking, baking, walking and hiking. She also gives back to the community, donating to Bloor/Yorkville functions.
DR. NANCY KANG
Dr. Kang earned her bachelor’s degree, master’s of science in nutritional sciences, and then her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, all at the University of Toronto. She then trained at Boston University for Dentistry to further expand her training of clinical procedures. Her belief in continuing education and professional development supports her in her lifetime pursuit of continuing studies.
Providing a full scope of dental care for all ages with a special interest in oral surgery, endodontics (root canal treatment), and paediatric dentistry, Dr. Kang is very passionate about meeting new patients. She enjoys establishing trusting long-lasting relationships. Patients love her approachable friendly personality!
When Dr. Kang is not in the office, she enjoys running, cycling, and playing volleyball. She also loves to travel and scuba dive.
DR. JANICE LO
Dr. Lo graduated from University of Toronto's Doctor of Dental Surgery program in 2003. She has been an integral member of our team for over 10 years, and treats her patients with compassion, kindness and skill.
With broad experience using Invisalign, Dr. Lo is a Preferred Invisalign Provider, straightening many smiles including our own Dr. Judy’s. Feel free to set up a complimentary consultation to see what Invisalign can do for you!
When Dr. Lo is not at the office, her two daughters keep her busy and on her toes. She stays fit with Lagree, Pilates, Barre and sports conditioning whenever she gets the chance.
ABOUT OUR TEAM
Our exceptional, friendly staff is our greatest asset. All of our dental assistants and hygienists are licensed professionals who pride themselves on their knowledge of current dental technology and techniques. They are excited about what they do, and genuinely care about getting the best results for our extended family of patients.
Our hygienists are Alida, Charisse, Mary and Christine. Alida has been with us for over 15 years; Charisse and Mary have been working as hygienists for over ten years! Christine has just recently joined our practice and we are very proud of our hygiene team. All four see themselves as your personal trainers for healthy gums and teeth. They all work together to provide a periodontal program tailored to your individual needs – and to motivate you to optimize your dental well-being.
THE DENTAL ASSISTANTS
Hope, Sheila and Rowena, our dental assistant team, take pride in ensuring your visits are pleasant and relaxed. They ensure instruments are sterilized, patients are comfortable, and everything is clearly explained at every stage. Please free to share your needs and concerns with them.
THE FRONT OFFICE TEAM
Chari has been our office manager and treatment coordinator for over 20 years, and she works closely with Amanda, our treatment coordinator. Marilyn, our office manager, and Diana are at the front desk and they all work together to ensure the whole office runs smoothly. Our front office staff are the ones who communicate with patients on a regular basis, and work hard to accommodate your busy schedule by finding appointments that suit your needs. And if financial arrangements are needed, Amanda will be happy to talk to you about options to help put your dental treatment within your financial reach.
When you walk through our door you will often be greeted by these two smiling faces. We are thrilled to have Jasmine and Jessica as part of our dental team.
