Our Dentists & Specialists

Dr. Gerry Catapano, D.D.S

Dr. Catapano graduated from the University of Toronto faculty of dentistry in 1987 and has been creating healthy smiles ever since. He particularly enjoys Invisalign treatment, wisdom teeth removals, and dental implants.

Dr. Catapano prides himself on ensuring that his patients are informed of their options. He will happily take the time to discuss the pros and cons of each treatment so that his patients can make the best choice for their oral health.

Dr. Catapano understands that dental anxiety is common and encourages prospective patients to come in for a meet and greet first. Fear is usually due to a past negative experience, and he likes taking small steps to overcome that fear and help his patients become comfortable. Along the way, he is also proud to offer various levels of sedation to assist in the overall experience.

Dr. Catapano is of Italian descent and speaks Italian fluently. He greatly enjoys the love and happiness that comes from being a part of a close-knit family.

Dr. Andrew Steinman, DMD

Dr. Andrew Steinman is a 2012 McGill University Dental School graduate, originally born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. Prior to dentistry, he received a B.Sc. in anatomy, also from McGill.

Dr. Steinman is proficient in all aspects of general dentistry but particularly enjoys crown and bridge treatments because of how precise and detailed the treatment is and is very rewarding. He also enjoys veneers because of how they instill confidence in the patient. They can really transform a smile and patients are always very happy with the results.

He recommends any nervous patients to come in for an initial exam and go from there. Avoiding dental care is never the solution and will only make things worse down the road. If done properly, dentistry should be done with very little, if any discomfort. He genuinely cares about his patients and always tries to have a good time with them to help make appointments more palatable. Good patient/dentist rapport is of utmost importance to him.

In his spare time, he enjoys playing softball, hockey and is an avid skier. He has been married to my wife Jennifer for nearly 10 years. Together they have two children Abigail and Zachary.

Dr. Julia Mulyar, D.D.S

Dr. Mulyar cares for her patients like they’re her own family. Practicing in a small town means that everyone knows each other, and she strives to make every one of her patients happy and healthy. The overall well-being of her patients is just as important as their dental health.

Dr. Mulyar particularly enjoys cosmetic procedures such as veneers, implants, and smile makeovers because of the artistry involved. They allow patients to regain confidence, a youthful appearance, and functionality.

Born in Ukraine, Dr. Mulyar moved to Canada with her family at the age of 7. She stuck around for the seasons – basketball season, construction season, and skiing season. She is fluent in English, Russian, and Ukrainian.

Dr. Edward Gelfand, BSc, DMD, FICOI
