Biography

Dr. Farrah Awan is dedicated to the oral health and well-being of her patients. She is committed to providing the most cutting-edge and comprehensive care to her patients and does so by offering high quality dental care using the latest technological advancements in the field. Dr. Awan completed her Bachelor of Health Science Honours degree at McMaster University. She then went on to receive her Bachelor of Dental Surgery Honours degree at University College Cork in Ireland. She continued to advance her skills by completing a General Practice Residency at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto where she gained advanced training in hospital dentistry at the postdoctoral level. She worked closely with many dental specialists such as, Oral Pathologists, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Periodontists and Endodontists. Her training focused on providing comprehensive multidisciplinary oral health care to medically compromised patients and those with special needs (both mental and physical). There was a strong emphasis on special needs dentistry and this is where Dr. Awan excelled. She currently holds a Staff position at The Mount Sinai Hospital Department of Dentistry where she continues to treat patients both in the Dental Clinic and the Operating Room. Dr. Awan firmly believes in providing the best of herself to both her profession and her local community and does so through continuing education and community involvement.

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

- Thorough and comprehensive examination - Patient education- empowering patients with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions with regards to their oral health care - Patient comfort and well being - Emphasis on preventative dentistry During my hospital training, I became acutely aware that I was not only addressing the oral health needs of my patients, but also treating the patient as a whole. Collaborating with dental specialists/medical professionals, as well as the patient is the cornerstone of high quality dental care. I strive to help my patients achieve their oral health goals in a manner that is both conducive to their needs/desires and whole-body health. Empowering patients with the dental knowledge to make informed decisions with regards to their care is of utmost importance. I believe that through extensive treatment planning and patient education, along with a clear artistic vision, my patients and I can use the most advanced technology to customize treatment and create confident smiles and an overall sense of well-being.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, but specifically enjoy providing emergency and comprehensive oral health-care including oral surgery, restorative dentistry (direct restorations or fillings) and addressing acute oral health problems, such as dental trauma.

What are you proud of in your practice?

Providing patient-centered care. The field of dentistry is unlike any other field of medicine in that it is heavily reliant on the patient-dentist relationship. Without a foundation of trust, the journey to establishing ideal oral health cannot be achieved. My patients know that when they are in my chair their health, happiness, and comfort is my top priority. Fostering that relationship and continuing to earn my patients trust through their referral to family and friends is the highest complement and by far my greatest achievement.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

The most enjoyable cases are those in which my patients achieve their individual oral health goals and being the first to witness their reaction- a contagious-heart-warming-bigger-than-life-smile. Having a patient express delight with their dental experience makes any case rewarding, regardless of whether it is a long or short journey.
