Today, Dawson Dental Centre has 20 locations across southern Ontario. Each location is run with a personalized approach and key focus on patient satisfaction.

Our clinical team, general Dentists and Dental Specialists have years of experience creating personalized smiles for any age. Our Dentists provide popular teeth whitening techniques, dental veneers, Invisalign Invisible braces, dental implants, and best of all – complete dental care (cleaning) at affordable prices. Our centres are equipped to provide various Sedation Dentistry options for patients with all levels of anxiety.

In 2009, Dawson created the Community Care Program – initiated for patients who cannot afford the services they need. Learn more about this initiative and how our teams and patients have come together to pay it forward.
