We happily see patients of all ages, from our youngest 18 month old, to our 96 year old, who still has all of her teeth! We believe overall health starts in the mouth. Medical and Dental research has proven the systemic connection between your mouth and the overall health of your body. Conditions like heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, respriatory disease, some forms of cancer, stroke, alzheimer's and inflammations, are just a few of the many conditions which have been linked to poor dental health. Keeping this in mind, our goal is to treat your mouth based on your specific needs, educate you on how to maintain a healthy mouth at home and to keep you on a regular hygiene cycle. By achieving this goal together, we will help you save time, money and preserve your overall health. By The Lake Dental has a highly dedicated and motivated team of dental professionals who share in this same patient-centric culture. The team covers a diverse set of dental deciplines, allowing us to offer a full service - one-stop - dental experience. We look forward to having the opportunity to share our dental culture with you. We would further invite you to do your own research on By The Like Dental. By visiting several internet sites like dentistfind.ca, google reviews, facebook and rateMDs.com, you will gain first hand experience about our office through our patients.

What makes your practice special when compared with others in the area?

The patient centric dental experience we provide to our patients is truly unique. From the moment you walk into one of our offices, you will recognize the care we have taken in providing you and your family a comfortable setting. We have designed our space to make you feel comfortable during your visit. We offer a little something to all of our patients, no matter the age. Whether it's our kids zone, with a dedicated entertainment system, to our Japanese massage chairs. Our patients recognize these little things, along with the excellent dental care. They openly share their appreciation with their neighbours, friends and family. Due to this recognition and the understanding of why dentistry is so important to our health, By The Lake Dental recently expand it's foot print, by opening a second office in Highland Creek, Scarborough. This expansion will allow us to widen our reach to a larger number of patients, searching for a new dental experience.

    She sat down with me, checked each tooth, properly checked X-rays, and was friendly. I will definitely recommend her. She diagnosed me properly and gave the right treatment. I was out of my pain after only 1 day. Thanks.

    From the moment I walked in, till I walked out, my experience was fantastic. Everyone is very warm and enthusiastic about making sure you know how to better care for your teeth and important steps to take going forward. Dr. Patricia Khamis-Silva was extremely professional, knowledgeable and offered sound advice. I got my cleaning done by Carrie and she was absolutely incredible, so friendly, knowledgeable and offered very specific actionable advice for me to take better care of my teeth. Summer, the patient concierge is also very professional and accomodating and down to earth in energy! The office is very clean and welcoming.

    First time there and my experience was amazing! They were all so welcoming and nice. The denist has always made me very anxious but they made me feel so comfortable, that was a big part for me. Even if it was going to the dentist it was a great experience!

    My initial exam was with Dr. Patricia Khamis-Silva and she was so compassionate and understanding and her assistant Jessica was the same. I returned a few days later for my cleaning and had Martha as my hygienist and she was amazing. Good stories to share and fabulous at educating. I would highly recommend By The Lake Dental to all.

    Amazing!! This dental office is by far the most incredible one I’ve been to. Their technology, approachability, keenness and genuine concern for your oral health is matchless. I honestly told her she made me feel like I’ve never been to a dentist before with the level of care and knowledge she conveyed.

    Dr Silva was professional. She explained thoroughly the steps she and her colleagues were doing for a first time patient like me in the clinic. The what to do and not what do with my teeth and offering advice. Likewise, Andrea, was great! Before she did my x-rays and 3D scans, she toured me around the clinic which was amazing - all up to date equipment, kids area, massage chairs in the waiting area, overall cozy. Liza, on the other hand, while cleaning my teeth, showed her care with the patients. Overall a great experience.

    Very calm very kind went above and beyond making me feel comfortable from the second I walked into the door and every single person I delt with right up until I left. I have bad social anxiety and this is by far the best establishment I have ever been to my anxieties any I did have were quickly gone they explain everything very well and take the time to make sure they know what you want and need and how to make your visit thorough . It is so relieving knowing I finally have a dentist I can trust with my dental hygiene I have had so many bad experiences in the past and this place is a saving grace !

Dr. Patricia advised me on the best ways to take care of my cavities and was able to book an appointment quickly. Absolutely loved my hygienist Martha, was thorough and patient throughout the process of the cleaning and helped me out by informing me on the best way to take care of my gums. Great place, clean and experienced staff. Would highly recommend!

    All the staff were very pleasant and professional. When I mentioned preferring natural methods I wasn't shut down, like I am sometimes with other dentists, but she listened and gave her input on the different options. The office does take a lot of x-rays and offers many high tech options. I also like that the dentists rotate taking a Saturday each month.

    It has been quite some time since I’ve visited a dentist. Overall, I’ve just had bad experiences throughout the years. I was looking for a dentist, and came across Dr. Andrea Tagliaferro’s practice. I decided to give it a go, and immediately I was at ease. The office itself is gorgeous, and my experience with all staff was great, everyone was warm and seemed to genuinely enjoy their time there. I am excited to have finally found my dentist, only a few minutes away from home.

    I have only had a consultation with Andrea, but I can speak to a few things: 1. The clinic has a really inviting atmosphere, everyone was social and comfortable. 2. The equipment they used to take xrays and other images was really high-tech and cool, and they were always super transparent about how everything worked. 3. When I had issues with my insurance company, the receptionist handled all of it with patience and kindness. 4. Andrea was incredibly thorough when she sat down with me after, really talking to me about my dental health in a way that no other dentist has. I feel like I really actually understand everything that is happening, and like I wasn't just being rushed around. I really can't overstate how much better I feel about her than I have any of my previous dentists. She was thoughtful in her answers to my questions. 5. Every level of the experience made me feel like I was in control, was being respected, and was understood. HIGHLY recommend.
