Dr. Sidney Zucker,
Dr. Jeffrey Mandel, D.D.S.
Dr. Mandel is passionate about all aspects of dentistry and cares not only for his patients’ dental health, but their overall health.
He understands that dental fear or anxiety are completely natural which is why he encourages open communication between himself and his patients to build confidence. Being able to trust your provider is the most important step in overcoming any concerns and getting the necessary treatment. Nobody should ever neglect their health out of fear, and Dr. Mandel will always do everything he can to help make appointments easier and more enjoyable.
Dr. Ziad Azawi, D.D.S.
Dr. Al Azawi brings many years of experience to Dawson Dental. He has worked in a variety of clinical settings around the world and continuously strives to update his knowledge and skills in order to offer the most current, evidence-based treatment to his patients. Dr. Al Azawi will always go above and beyond to ensure the best patient experience.
Through his experience, Dr. Al Azawi has developed a passion for dental surgeries, including implants to restore missing teeth, endodontic treatment to relieve patient discomfort and preserve teeth that would otherwise be extracted, and orthodontic and aesthetic restoration for the increased self-esteem and function they provide to his patients.
Dr. Al Azawi is compassionate and understands that many people have a fear of visiting the dentist. He advises his nervous patients that there options to help ease anxiety and ensure comfort during their appointment. These include various forms of sedation, having a family member or loved-one nearby for comfort, establishing a signal to stop treatment if the patient is suddenly feeling anxious, or even listening to soothing music. He will also take the time to discuss every step of the procedure with his patient before beginning treatment.
What is Dr. Al Azawi’s advice for someone looking for a new dental provider? Find someone who makes you feel comfortable and is willing to answer all your questions. Airing any concerns during your initial meeting will help build a relationship and make future appointments more enjoyable. It will also allow the dentist to tailor your treatment plan based on individual wants and needs.
Fluent in English and Arabic, Dr. Al Azawi was born in Iraq and has been lucky enough to travel the world and live in various countries including Japan, Qatar, and United Arab Emirates before finally settling in Canada. He is happily married with two beautiful children.

He is particularly passionate about non-surgical root canal treatments as it is the most common treatment within the specialty. He also enjoys non-surgical root canal retreatments and surgical endodontic treatments.
In his spare time, he enjoys sports, traveling, and spending time with his two daughters.
Dr. Monica Gawlik, D.D.S., MSc, Dip Ortho, FRCD(C)
Dr. Gawlik takes great pride in creating beautiful smiles! Over the past 9 years, she has successfully treated thousands of orthodontic cases. She utilizes conventional (metal) braces, as well as clear braces, Invisalign aligners and removable appliances, for those seeking an excellent aesthetic treatment option. Dr. Gawlik is an advocate of early interceptive orthodontic treatment for children aged 7 and over.
For anyone who is hesitant about seeing an orthodontist, Dr. Gawlik wants to reassure patients that orthodontic treatment is painless! There are no needles required and she works very gently and quickly. She will always take the time to listen to her patients’ concerns and explain treatment in detail beforehand.
Her advice for anyone looking to straighten their teeth? Find someone with a warm, caring personality who is willing to be transparent and take the extra time to explain all the treatment options, not just administer them.
Dr. Gawlik enjoys being able to work in a multidisciplinary office setting because it allows patients to obtain the best, most convenient treatment, all in one place.
Fluent in English and Polish, Dr. Gawlik was born and raised in Toronto but lived in Manhattan to complete her orthodontic residency. She has since settled in Toronto’s west end.
