The Tooth Corner in Stoney Creek

Our doctors and staff at the Tooth Corner in Stoney Creek want your family to smile all day, every day! We make dental care affordable and easy by accepting all insurance and offering interest-free payment plans. We’re also open Monday through Friday, with extended hours to 7pm on Thursdays and Fridays.

In addition to convenience and affordability, we care about you. The doctors in our Stoney Creek dental office understand the importance of knowing each patient, understanding your needs and expectations, and customizing treatment to your specific case. Our hygienists will work with you, answering questions about oral health and home hygiene, cleaning your teeth, and helping you take great care of your teeth and gums so that you can enjoy them for years to come. We also partner with parents, as a team to raise healthy kids who want to eat right, brush and floss, and avoid cavities. We are your neighbourhood dental office, and we’re here to make you smile.

We’re Working for You!

How can we help you? Just let us know. Your satisfaction is our goal, and we offer a scope of dental procedures so that patients don’t have to visit multiple specialists for various treatments. When it serves you well, we can provide these treatments in our comfortable, familiar office:

Dental hygiene and periodontal care

If you’re told during a regular dental cleaning that you have gum disease, don’t postpone treatment. You’ll probably need a deep dental cleaning and periodontal maintenance plan. Gum disease is a chronic, progressive condition that’s been associated with serious systemic health risks. We offer full periodontal care, and our hygienists will teach you everything you need to know about how to treat, manage, and reverse any negative effects of gum disease.

Root canal therapy

Oftentimes, dental patients are referred to an endodontist for root canal treatment. However, general dentists can perform root canal therapy and are trained to do so. In many cases, we offer root canal treatments, for patient comfort and convenience, instead of referring. Some complex cases may be referred to a specialist.

Tooth extraction

As with root canal therapy, oftentimes patients are referred to a specialist – an oral surgeon – for dental extractions. General dentists can perform most extractions, so for the convenience of our patients, we offer extractions. We offer sleep dentistry, for patient comfort, as well. Complex cases may be referred to a specialist, when in the best interest of the patient.

Sleep dentistry

Dental anxiety or phobia is a very real and widespread condition that keeps unknown numbers of people from seeking dental care. At The Tooth Corner, we offer anxious patients sleep dentistry, also called sedation dentistry, with anti-anxiety medication. To learn more about this method of sedation, call our office today.

Braces

Not all orthodontic cases need an orthodontist. General dentists are trained to administer braces, so we offer braces to our patients at The Tooth Corner. Children as young as seven may need interceptive orthodontics, to begin phased treatment. We also offer braces for adults and teens.

Dental implants

For ill-fitting, wobbly dentures or to replace one or more lost teeth, dental implants provide a stable and lasting option. Implants are small metal posts applied into the jaw. A prosthetic – crown, bridge, or denture – is attached to the top of the implant, or to a few implants. The prosthetic is held tightly in place and cannot loosen. Implant have revolutionized dentures, particularly lower dentures, which tend to slip out of place and cause embarrassing moments.

Schedule Your Visit Today

At The Tooth Corner at Stoney Creek, we look forward to welcoming new patients every day. Call us at 905-664-3358 or book an appointment on our website. Over the past 15 years, The Tooth Center has provided services to satisfied patients all over Southern Ontario.

Visiting our dentist shouldn’t break the bank. However, most of us don’t understand the true value of oral health, and it’s upkeep. Most of us are quick to spend thousands of dollars on a vacation that may last a few days or a few weeks, yet are very hesitant to spend money when it comes to the one curve that lasts a lifetime and sets everything straight, our smile. Whether you have dental insurance or not, we charge appropriate, reasonable, and fair prices for the quality of care we provide. Furthermore, our prices are comparable to the suggested fee guide supplied by Ontario’s Dental Association (ODA).

Only well-screened, qualified doctors and hygienists make it through to ensure a comfortable and joyful experience for you. We know that visiting a dentist is not something many of us look forward to so it is paramount that you’re in the gentle and capable hands of a caring and experienced professional, and we’ve gone to lengths to ensure that here.

We treat people, not just teeth. We’re more interested in you, the one behind the smile. The last thing any of us want to deal with is a rude, edgy, or poorly trained receptionist or office manager. Empathy is one of our core values, and we go to extreme measures to ensure that it’s palpable in every interaction we have with you, our beloved patients.

We’re after your trust, not wallets. We provide honest consultations that are in the best interest of your teeth, not our pockets. Unfortunately, insurance mining or the process of over-diagnosing to get the most of what remains out of a patients insurance policy is quickly becoming common practice in dentistry. Insurance mining is unethical and can even be considered borderline fraud. This is not to be confused with cases involving preventive measures. Irrelevant of the situation though, we always ensure that you get an honest, and proper consultation that is in your oral health’s benefit.

We take all private dental insurance plans like Manulife, Sun Life, Great-West Life, Blue Cross, Green Shield Canada and more. If you’re not sure, call us and ask. We believe that no patient should be left to worry or be concerned with whether we accept their insurance or not, but to make it easy for you, and for your added convenience, we decided to take them all.

Whether it’s ODSP for disability support, Ontario Works for welfare, Healthy Smiles Ontario for kids 17 and under, or IFHP for refugees, we take them all. If it’s made in Canada, we accept it. In a nutshell, we dislike disappointing patients or turning them away.

For those of us without insurance, we provide comfortable, interest-free payment plans for more expensive cosmetic procedures. Affordability shouldn’t get in a mothers way of getting her child braces, or a senior citizen’s way of getting implants. Everyone should be comfortably able to take care of their oral health needs.

For patients who are new to the country, visiting, or for whatever reason don’t speak English, they can feel comfortable knowing that we speak many languages at The Tooth Corner. Here are some of the ones we speak: English (of course), French, Arabic, Hindi, Urdu, Farsi, and more. If you don’t speak any English, feel free to call to check and see if we speak your language.

HOW TO FIND THE TOOTH CORNER IN STONEY CREEK

Services

Dental Braces

Braces can correct open bites, over bite, under bites, and cross bites. They can also correct cosmetic issues unrelated to occlusion, such as slightly overlapped, gapped, or twisted teeth. Children as young as seven years old can begin interceptive orthodontics with braces and other appliances, such as expanders and spacers. Children sometimes benefit from phased orthodontic treatment, in which braces are worn two or more times during adolescence and young adult years. Adults can also wear braces.... Read More »

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

If you experience pain when your wisdom teeth start to come in, one of the unerupted third molars could be impacted or infected. Sometimes patients want to proactively have the large teeth removed, before they cause pain. Wisdom teeth can be hard to clean, due to their location in the very back of the mouth. If yours erupt and develop normally, there’s a risk that they could create problems in the future if improper brushing and flossing allows decay to develop. However, some people retain all their wisdom teeth throughout life, without incident. ... Read More »

Oral Hygiene

Dental hygiene is the practice of keeping teeth clean and healthy. Our mouths are subjected to over 600 different kinds of bacteria all the time, and while some of the bacteria are good, the job of bad bacteria is to cause cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. At Southern Ontario Tooth Corner dental clinics, our dentists and hygienists partner with patients of all ages to battle bad bacteria. We want you to keep your natural teeth and enjoy healthy gums throughout your lifetime. ... Read More »

Children’s Dentistry

A pediatric dentist offers a complete range including oral health exams, preventive care through twice yearly check-ups to monitor growth and cleaning, filling cavities, assessment for orthodontics (braces), and treating gum disease. In some instances, it is necessary to repair or replace a chipped or broken tooth in a child. Dental and oral injuries are common in kids who participate in sports, which is why we strongly recommend that young athletes wear a mouth guard. ... Read More »

Sleep Dentistry

Sedation or sleep dentistry refers to the use of sedatives to calm and relax a patient prior to and during a dental appointment. These sedatives exert their action by depressing the central nervous system, specifically those areas concerned with conscious awareness. There are different degrees of central nervous system depression, each corresponding to a level of relaxation which ranges from minimal, moderate, to deep sedation... ... Read More »

Veneers

Dental veneers transform a smile and replace the need for many other dental procedures, ultimately improving self-esteem, while saving time and expense. Made of porcelain or composite resin, veneers will redefine tooth colour, shape, spacing, and overall appearance. Every element of what makes a smile attractive can be addressed with veneers. So, whether you want a big, bold smile for your giant personality, or you’d like a more demure and mature smile, porcelain veneers can deliver the look you want to achieve. Call the Tooth Corner dental clinic nearest you, in Southern Ontario, to schedule a cosmetic dentistry appointment now. ... Read More »

Root Canal

The procedure has come a long way in the past few decades. With microtools and modern techniques, we often complete the entire procedure in a single visit. ... Read More »

Invisalign

Straighter teeth might be possible, without having to wear braces, if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. The 20 Tooth Corner locations across Southern Ontario offer this innovative, clear aligner technology that’s an alternative to traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces. Patients enjoy having a natural smile during orthodontic treatment, as well as the ability to remove the clear aligners when eating or cleaning their teeth. Invisalign even offers a special product for teenagers.... Read More »

Bridges

If you are missing one or more consecutive teeth, it’s time to consider dental bridges. These restorative prosthetic appliances “bridge the gap” between missing teeth to restore form and function to a smile. If you have lost teeth due to extraction, trauma, or disease, replacing them is important to your oral and overall good health. ... Read More »

Extractions

A tooth extraction is the purposeful removal of a tooth. At the Tooth Corner dental clinics of Southern Ontario, we do all we can to save damaged and infected teeth with root canal therapy, crowns, and various restorative treatments. However, sometimes the infection or damage to a tooth is so severe that the only way to restore oral health and relieve pain is by removing a tooth. ... Read More »

Crowns

If you have missing or damaged teeth, a dental crown can fill the gap. Crowns also provide dental health benefits by allowing you to chew and process food without difficulty. Dentists place crowns on your teeth, helping to improve the appearance of your teeth and repair any damage your teeth have suffered. A crown also improves the strength of your teeth so you resume normal activity, such as eating and drinking.... Read More »

Emergency Dentist

Emergencies have a way of happening at inconvenient times, like when you are away from home. In the event of a dental emergency, you can visit one of the 20 the Tooth Corner dental offices across Southern Ontario for help, even if you are not a regular patient. Waiting until you return home from a vacation or for a next available appointment may jeopardize your dental health, and your pain could intensify. ... Read More »

DENTAL INSURANCE SPECIFICS

Does The Tooth Corner bill the insurance companies directly?

Yes, we accept insurance payments directly from the insurance companies. Most insurance companies in Canada allow for this with a few exceptions. The advantage of this is that it allows you to keep your money in your pocket and lets us worry about collecting payment and we're more than happy to do so. However, you will have to pay your deductible which varies from one insurance policy to another. Call us with the name of your insurance provider for more information.

What's Non-Assignment?

Non-Assignment is where you pay us first and then we submit your claim to your insurance company. We do this electronically and on the spot so you don't have to worry about it. The insurance company then reimburses you for the portion they cover as part of your insurance policy within a few business days. You can receive the money as quick as 2 business days at times.

So let's say for example your treatment plan ends up costing you $1,000 dollars and your insurance company covers 80% of that. You would pay us the $1,000 dollars, preferrably using a rewards card to incur reward points, and in a few business days you would receive $800 dollars back. If your insurance covers 100% of the treatment plan, then you'll get your entire $1,000 dollars back. Absolutely, nothing to lose, in fact there's something to gain in the process.

There are a few advantages to non-assignment, one of them being getting free reward points on your favourite rewards card. Here's why the Ontario Dental Association encourages it in their own words:

 

WHY THE ODA OPPOSES ASSIGNMENT

The ODA is opposed to assignment of benefits and actively encourages dental plan sponsors to make their dental plans “non-assignment” plans. Many people wonder why the ODA would oppose a process that many find convenient.

The answer lies in the fact that “non-assignment” dental plans can be less expensive than those that allow assignment, simply because the act of a patient paying for their dental care makes them financially involved in their oral health care. This provides very a good incentive for the patient to use their dental plan wisely. Dental claim reimbursement is much faster than it was years ago, and patients are finding that when they pay the dentist directly their reimbursement cheque is received quickly; greatly minimizing the time they are out of pocket. It is not unusual to see the dentist on Monday and have the reimbursement cheque before the end of the week, thanks to electronic claims submission.

Also, many dentists accept credit cards, which typically have a monthly billing cycle. If complex treatment is necessary, dentists can arrange a payment schedule that allows a patient to budget for expenses and get reimbursement that is more conveniently timed.

Active decision-making about oral health care by patients and meaningful involvement in the financial matters of dental care, including the dental plan, is an important part of achieving excellent oral health care.

Patients with Dental Insurance

At The Tooth Corner, we accept all forms of insurance, both private and government. It's important for you to be in the know as to which services are covered by your insurance, and how much is covered. Most insurance plans cover up to 80% of general dentistry, oral hygiene, and emergency services. Treatment plans that are cosmetic in nature, such as whitening, implants, veneers, and braces are not typically covered, but you should always double check.
