Our Dentists & Specialists

Dr. Isaac Gabay, D.D.S.

Dr. Gabay takes great pride in helping his patients achieve optimal oral health. He understands that dental visits are not always easy for everyone, which is why he encourages any new patient considering Portrait Dental to come in for a meet and greet first. Touring the office and familiarizing yourself with a provider before an exam or treatment can go a long way to help relieve the fear of the unknown.

Dr. Gabay is passionate about all aspects of dentistry, particularly dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, and root canal treatment.

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his three kids.

Dr. Kostantina Abate, D.D.S.

Dr. Kosta, as her patients call her, loves what she does, and it shows! She is enthusiastic and a self-proclaimed perfectionist – a good trait to have as a dentist! Through her experience, Dr. Kosta has developed a passion for smile makeovers, cosmetic bonding, and Invisalign invisible braces treatment because of the visual impact they have on the patient’s smile.

Coming from a diverse background of English, Greek and Italian, Dr. Kosta truly appreciates Toronto’s diversity and enjoys practicing in the city.

He has been performing smile makeovers for local residents and people flying in from all over the world. Many of Toronto’s Models are referred to him by six of the GTA’s leading agencies, and, most importantly, local clients referred by friends, family, and by their family dentists.

Dr. Edward Gelfand has dedicated his career to enhancing people’s lives both aesthetically and functionally.
