About

Dr. Durkot was born and raised in Toronto. She was educated in Toronto and graduated from The Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Toronto with a degree in dentistry in 1989. From 1999 to 2012 Dr. Durkot was an instructor, acting as the Comprehensive Clinical Care Coordinator for the senior students at the Faculty of Dentistry. Dr. Durkot maintains her membership in the Ontario Dental Association (ODA) and the Halton Peel Dental Association (HPDA). In 2004, Dr. Durkot joined a team of dentists, hygienists and other support staff on a 10 day excursion to Guatemala where they worked as volunteers. Our team provided dental care in a remote area of the country. Dr. Durkot has a great interest in travel and photography and also enjoys outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, cycling and tennis.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I am very motivated and excited to be able to provide a high quality of dental care in a gentle manner and in a comfortable environment. I have had numerous patients say that the local anesthetic technique that I use is the best they have ever experienced. I have a passion for helping people and minimizing the anxiety they may feel in the dental office.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I enjoy the variety of treatment that I am able to provide as a general dentist for my patients. I particularly enjoy working with children, providing cosmetic dentistry and helping to relieve the pain experienced by patients who come in on an emergency basis.

What are you proud of in your practice?

We have a fantastic team of professionals working in our dental clinic, each one of us is dedicated to helping provide the highest quality of dentistry in a friendly and comfortable environment.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

Some of the most enjoyable cases I treat are patients who have not had access to dental care for a period of time. Helping them to restore their mouth to a healthy state and helping them to be proud of their smile is very satisfying.

    I don't regularly take care if my teeth, and went in for urgent tooth pain. Dentist was very flexible with arranging appointments required. Day one was a free x-ray and examination. They took down my insurance info, was patient, and all my appointments was quick with no pain. I required teeth to be pulled and was expecting pain, and it felt like two pitches. It was done in less than one hour, and done perfectly. I would highly recommend this Dentist.

    Dr Durkot was funny and kind and did a good job of explaining the findings of her exam and the x-rays to me. Her office was quick and efficient and answered all my questions about my insurance. Scheduling was easy.

    Wow. I’m blown away with all of the staff I met during my visit and can’t wait to go back for my next appointment! Julie at the front desk, Rachel the hygienist and Dr. Durcot were so personable and understanding. I have a lot of work that needs to be done and treated me with respect, kindness and exercised discretion. They took time to review the work that needed to be done and the images they generated. I felt so welcomed and am lucky to have found the practice!!!!!

    I hadn't been to the dentist in 3 years due to a lack of benefits/anxiety. They were very accommodating and friendly. They were following strict COVID-19 protocols which I appreciated. They are super knowledgeable and educated me on the status of my oral hygeniene and what I could be doing better. It was an eye opener, thank you Rachel and the rest of the staff!

    Everyone at the office was really nice and the office itself was very clean and nice looking. Jackie, the dental hygienist, was very kind and was calming me down a lot. Dr. Durkot was nice as well and even remembered my name as I was leaving the office. I would definitely recommend this location if you are very anxious at the dentist.

    Had Jackie as my hygienist and Dr. Ramirez. They were about 15 mins late but very apologetic and had a coffee station in the meantime, so I appreciated that. I was told I would have a cleaning on the same day but that changed and they had to rebook a different day. My first time meeting everyone was genuine and welcoming. Dr. Ramirez was very knowledgeable and showed true concern for my overall health. Both her and Jackie were friendly and professional. Office is clean and newer. Would’ve liked some dental floss or “loot bag” but not a big deal. Definitely more pros and minimal cons. Reception ladies were quite nice and helpful. I did like the fact that they provided paperwork for all the financials. Overall good positive experience!

Tracy the hygienist was fantastic - I hadn't been to the dentist in a number of years and was very nervous and she made me feel very at ease. Dr. Tupman was friendly and professional - he made recommendations to help get my mouth back into shape!

    Overall, I was very satisfied. The receptionists were lovely, but I did have to wait 25 minutes before I was seen, and I arrived on time. I loved my hygienist, her name was Christine. She was very thorough and has lovely patient-side manner. Dr Tupman seemed cool, although a bit intimidating. Its just his ~vibe~ though, he is really nice, and seems to know his stuff.

    A wonderful experience! Everyone there was a complete delight, they actually used my name, asked me questions and had even read my file before I came in! They took photos of my teeth and then walked me through each shadow and cavity so I knew the best way to help myself. As a person with awful anxiety for dentists, I was extremely happy with this visit!

My teeth were checked and fixed with expertize . My front tooth had a visible cavity that was repaired and it is impossible see. Prices are reasonable . Location is only 9 minutes from my home. Everyone was very friendly. I can honestly say that I actually enjoyed my dentist visit. I have NO complaints. I will certainly return for future needs . I am recommending this dentist to my wife, family and friends. JOE

    From beginning to end, my experience at this clinic was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I was greeted with a smile by both Julie (reception) and Jackie (hygienist) and made to feel welcome and cared for throughout my entire stay. Dr Tupman was warm, engaging, friendly and made my oral exam comfortable and enjoyable. I am so thrilled that I decided to start a new relationship with the team at Tupman Dentistry. I would HIGHLY recommend to everyone (especially those who have anxiety and or/or dislike visiting the dentist)!

    I actually ended up seeing Dr. Tupman, who I believe owns the practice, and he was great. Very knowledgeable and down to earth, he took the time to explain everything and made me feel very comfortable. The same can be said for the dental hygienist whose name I forget unfortunately, but she did an amazing job and was very friendly as well. Considering I was going to the dentist (argh!) it was actually a pleasant experience!

    My experience was fantastic. The Dental Office was easy to find, there was free parking and the staff was extremely friendly and inviting. I am always slightly nervous about the dentist and the staff made me super comfortable. They explained every process along the way, gave me timeline expectations and were so friendly. My nerves vanished as soon as I entered the facility.

The hygienist was understanding and helped me feel comfortable about the process even though it was going to be a little painful. She was even able to take pictures of the inside of my mouth to show me what needed work.
