About

Our goal is to provide the highest quality of dental care in a friendly, warm and caring environment. We believe it is important to educate and communicate, so our patients will be able to make informed choices when it comes to their dental health. At Balsam Dental, we strive to minimize our ecological footprint and reduce consumption. The use of digital radiography eliminates photo chemical wastes such as fixers, developers and cleaners. It reduces radiation from the dental office, which is better for patients and staff.

    Dental Hygienist Domenica was incredibly informative about the x-Ray and cleaning process, as well as a wonderful person to chat with. Dr. Grace Yoo was extremely gentle and attentive. Overall, it was a very pleasant dental experience :)

    Today was my first visit with Dr. Yoo and dental hygienist Amber at Balsam Dental. I was unfortunately running late to my appointment and the team was able to accommodate me with no issue. I had one of the best dental experiences at Balsam Dental. After my appointment, I was given a very generous dental "goody bag" with an electric toothbrush, a variety of flossing tools and toothpaste. The office is conveniently located on Queen Street East and can be accessed by streetcar. Lots of street parking available if you are driving. The office is in a beautiful old building and is very clean. Would highly recommend!

    Balsam Dental is an excellent dental care provider. They were very kind and gave me an excellent package when I was finished my appointment of a toothbrush, 5 types of floss and a tooth whitening kit. I highly recommend Balsam Dental.

    I ended up seeing a different dentist, but everyone in the office was kind and professional. They took the time to explain everything, including telling me how much my next appointment would be before booking so I could ensure it worked with my finances.

    The dentist was quite lovely. She came in after the hygienist Amber finished a number of cleaning and treatments. The dentist was very thoughtful and spent time with me answering all my questions. I have an issue with my jaw that the dentist was considerate of. She gave me her honest opinion on possible treatments, and I felt she listened to my concerns.

    From the start of my experience with Balsam Dental, the team has been so amazing in trying to find a time and date that fit my schedule, and theirs. Their practice is close by, and from the second I walked in it was positive and upbeat. Dr. Samuel Shinde was thorough in his explanation as to why I may need further assistance in my dental hygiene and didn't pressure or lecture me in not being able to see a dentist in a long time. Positive experience, and I was fearful of what this appointment could bring. Fear no more! Thanks, Ashley, and Dr. Samuel Shinde!
