dr mamdaniDr. Arif Mamdani D.M.D

As an young child myself going to my Pediatric Dentist regularly, I've realized how important it was to be in a children's friendly environment to everyone to overcome my fear of the dentist. At times, going to the dentist can be a nervous experience for not only the child but also for the parents. It's my goal to use my previous personal experiences and everything I've learned in my dental career to create a positive experience for the entire family. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your child smile at their dental visit and I'm truly honoured to be in a profession where I get to work with children on a daily basis.
