She is a member of the Canadian Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, The International Team for Implantology, The International Association of Orthodontics and a Fellow of the American Dental Implant Association. Dr. Samarrae is highly dedicated for ongoing education to acquire new knowledge and experience in order to offer her patients the best dental healthcare possible. She was able to collect more than 1,800 CE courses in the past few years from highly accredited institutes like Toronto Implant Institute, Pikos Implant Institute, Misch International Implant Institute, Pankey Institute, Kois Center, Digital Smile Design Residency and many more. Dr. Samarrae is also keen toward helping the community and other dentists to provide excellent services in Implant and other restorative dentistry by providing mentoring and training courses to other dentists. The staff of The Teal Umbrella knows her as a smiley, humble and easy going person. She works hard to help her patients maintain good oral health. She is compassionate, and works to put the needs of her patients first and foremost. When she isn’t at The Teal Umbrella, Sheema can be found at home with her three children. She loves and enjoys art and hand crafting. Our office is non-assignment, which means we do take payment upfront and send the claim to your insurance, so your insurance will reimburse you accordingly. If you are ready to proceed . We look forward to hearing from you soon!

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

1) High knowledge and experience with complicated cases including implants, full mouth reconstruction, All-on-X, gum disease, and many more. 2) Listening to patients without judgment to find out the best solution for a long-term oral health and functionality. 3) Stand up behind my work with full confidence. Patient's satisfaction is the focus always.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I am skilled in all areas of dentistry, but primarily focus on Cosmetics, Invisalign, Oral Surgery and Teeth Whitening in my practice. I believe very strongly in continuing my education and completing advanced training programs in Orthodontics, Periodontics, Endodontics and Cosmetic Dentistry to make sure I can provide the highest quality of dentistry to all my patients.

What are you proud of in your practice?

We have an amazing team that do all what it needs to keep patients comfortable and satisfied.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I truly enjoy treating all my patients. However, one of the most rewarding moments for a dentist is to see a patient leave the office with a beautiful smile on their face while only a short time ago they were experiencing discomfort, pain or embarrassment to smile.

    She was professional, patient, and kind. She gave me some good advice. They pictured and scanned all of my teeth very carefully and professionally to detect the current and potential issues. I would highly recommend her.

    A very wonderful staff and team! Even before I step foot in the office the receptionist on the phone was amazing explaining everything to me, and when I went into the office it was the exact same everybody is so friendly and nice. The dental hygienist I had was Alexandra, she was so gentle and sweet, she took her time and made sure I was comfortable. Dr. Samarrae was wonderful as well, very straight forward with everything layed out all the options and I felt like she truly cares and wants to help me fix the issues I have. So thank you to a wonderful team who has given my the confidence to feel comfortable in a dental chair again.

    I felt so comfortable and safe in their care. They explained everything to me and walked me through every step of the process; that was so calming for me. What amazed me were the accommodations they offered for nervous people (well anyone really!) And I love the high tech 3D modeling of my mouth! Really helpful to visualize all my cavities 😅

    My experience so far has been great. After having a pretty bad experience at my last dental office, I was a bit nervous to return, but everyone here made me feel completely comfortable. Everyone I spoke to wanted to hear about my negative experience to make sure that these same things didn't happen. I've dreaded going to the dentist for as long as I can remember, but I truly don't anymore.

    It was a pleasant experience from beginning to end. Everyone I encountered was friendly, patient and informative from the moment I arrived until I left. The doctor was absolutely lovely with a great attention to detail. Ryan, the hygienist was amazing and made me feel at ease when I started to get anxious. Everything was explained throughly before any procedure was done. I'm appreciative of all the staff that made a visit I was dreading into a nice experience. Thank you

    The staff was very welcoming and reassuring that they would help me get my teeth back in tip top shape. They gave me a gift bag with dental supplies for being a new client which will help in keeping my teeth in good condition. I actually love forward to going back due to how pleasant the experience was. The office is also really nice and relaxing.
