Biography

Hi! I am Dr. Whitaker, and I look forward to welcoming you to Pil Son Dental Group. First, I would like to introduce myself. I am originally from Dublin, Ireland and recently moved to Toronto with my Canadian husband. Since completing my training in Dentistry, I have worked as a family dentist in Ireland. I have experience in all aspects of general dentistry and my primary goal is patient education and prevention of disease. Prior to studying Dentistry, I completed a PhD in Psychology. My background has allowed me to develop a gentle approach to dentistry, as well as an appreciation for creating a positive dental experience with each patient. I aim to provide a calm and relaxed environment. Especially when working with children and nervous patients. I value the relationship with my patients and promoting oral health above all else. Outside of my work, I enjoy yoga, watching documentaries, travelling, cooking and getting to know the city.

What are you proud of in your practice?

Because of my background in Psychology, I find myself in a unique position to develop a new approach to dentistry. I am very much aware that some patients can find going to the dentist uncomfortable, even though technology in the last couple of years has made great leaps forward to reduce this. That is why I invest a lot of time in building a relationship with my patients. Being able to understand and get to know them, to a point where they come into the office smiling, is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job.

    I’m generally pretty anxious about going to the dentist, but they listened to my concerns and took amazing care of me. It was actually kind of a fun time which is something I swore I’d never say! 🤗

    Friendly, and overall a good experience. A bit discomforting when the xrays were being done because the certain machine used required me to insert a piece into my mouth that looked impossible. I have a high tolerance when it comes to pain, but maybe it had to do with the staff who was using it on me; I felt like the piece was cutting my mouth.

  • Dr. Whitaker is warm, transparent, and straightforward – I felt at unusually at ease for a dental appointment!
    Reviewed on October 25th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    I knew I needed to get a filling done, which prompted me to look for dentists in the city. As someone new to Toronto, I was super daunted by the process! Communicating with Dr. Whitaker's office was such a pleasure - they are speedy at responding over email and extremely accommodating. Her staff were all really diligent and kind, and Dr. Whitaker was awesome at letting me know what was happening throughout the procedure.

  • Great and personalized appointment!
    Reviewed on October 19th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    I really appreciated the detail that Dr. Whitaker went into. While it was informative and practical, I also felt as though it was personable and friendly. Hard to strike that balance. I was able to ask questions while looking at my xrays and photos and talk through techniques and options. All the staff were friendly and great to work with. Location is fabulous. Happy I found my new dentist.

    My first visit was great! Cleaning was very thorough, and as someone who isn't particularly fond of dental work, I can say that I was totally comfortable and at ease the entire time! Dr. Whitaker is amazing - so detail oriented and took a fair bit of time to review the results of my dental check up!

    Even though I didn't have the appointment with Dr. Whitaker, her colleague was very professional, caring, explained all of the examination results in good detail. I appreciated his honesty and he wasn't sales-y as some dentists tend to be.

    She explained everything in detail and showed concern for my dental health. I am very satisfied with the services received (cleaning, x-ray and exam) and would recommend her without hesitation. The other staff members were also professional and nice. Going to the dentist is never a fun experience and they made me as comfortable as can be.
