Biography

Dr. Jennifer Lai is passionate about dentistry. She moved to Toronto at age 16 to pursue her dream of becoming a dentist. Of course this dream does not come from nowhere. Dr. Jennifer grew up in a dental office alongside with her mother and grandfather who were both dentists. You can say dentistry is not only a passion for her, but it is in her blood. Dr. Jennifer Lai received early acceptance into the prestigious University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry in 2004 as a result of her high achievement in the biochemistry undergraduate program in U of T St George Campus. After receiving her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2008, Dr. Jennifer has continued to further her education by taking numerous post graduate continuing education courses. She is a certified Invisalign provider, as well as be able to provide the traditional wire and brackets orthodontic treatment (Braces) when necessary. Dr. Jennifer has also been trained by some of the best post graduate dental educators in the world, including Misch Implant Institute and the Kois Centre. Dr. Jennifer has been practicing Dentistry since graduating in 2008 and treated thousands of happy patients in Toronto! Dr. Jennifer believes that every patient is unique and different in their own ways. Therefore, we should provide comprehensive individualized dental care according to each patient’s unique needs. Open communication is another vital component for optimum outcomes and ultimate treatment success. Without understanding each patient’s wants and ultimate goals, we cannot deliver the satisfaction we try to achieve. Dr. Jennifer prides herself on being a great communicator and she strives to achieve the best quality care by listening carefully to her patients. At the same time Dr. Jennifer will personally educate each patient in the specific treatment and the overall value and importance of dental health as an integral component of our overall health. Dr. Jennifer cares not only about dentistry, but more importantly she cares about how to ensure her patients are healthy, happy, comfortable, and being well taking care off. Dr. Jennifer is also an active member of the Ontario Dental Association (ODA), American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), International Congress of Oral Implantologistsf (ICOI), and International Association of Orthodontics (IAO). Dr. Jennifer has lived in the core of downtown Toronto neighborhood since 1999. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband Ryan and their two wonderful boys Braedon and Blake. Let’s not forget about Max, her 10 year old loyal Dobe.

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

I have a passion for dentistry, as well as extensive post graduate continuing education in a variety of specialized dental treatments. I am experienced in all aspect of dentistry from general and cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, Invisalign and orthodontics, to BOTOX therapy. Our comprehensive treatment approach will ensure our patients not only getting the treatment they need, but most importantly the treatment and services they deserve. Our state of the art clinic also provides a spa environment to ensure your visit will be as enjoyable as possible.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I specialize in a variety of dental services, Including general and cosmetic dentistry. However, my top three treatments and what I most enjoy doing are cosmetic smile make over, Invisalign/orthodontics ,and BOTOX treatment for TMD.

What are you proud of in your practice?

We provide high quality dental care in the most comfortable and enjoyable environment that will make you feel awesome for a dental visit. We also adapt the newest technology and believe in the high standard of continuing education to ensure our patients get the best care they deserve.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I am passionate about dentistry and enjoy treating every single patient according to their specific needs. But what I love the most is to help my patient one smile at a time in order to improve their quality of life. Changing a smile may not change the world, but it will definitely changes that person's world!

  • Dr. Jennifer Lai was very thorough and explained each step in the process in detail.

    I went to see Dr. Jennifer Lai for a dental exam and cleaning. The dental exam was quite thorough, and educational - a nice change from some of the brief exams that I have had with other dentists. I have sensitive teeth and gums (to some extent) and it was comforting to know that they were responsive to any sensitivities that I expressed during the exam and cleaning. They also provided me with free whitening trays as part of my visit! It was a great experience and I would highly recommend.

    Such welcoming staff, super knowledgeable, efficient & skilled. I really appreciated how much information Dr. Lai provided - walking me through the x-rays, what she saw & found. I left feeling like I had a significantly better understanding of my dental health! They were so lovely - I was so nervous, but soon felt confident that I had nothing to worry about!

  • Truly a dental Oasis in the City!
    Reviewed on December 14th, 2016
    From my first interaction with City Oasis, I have been blown away by their professionalism, friendliness, and hospitality. My emails and inquires were responded to in a timely manner and with the upmost level of customer service. They were flexible in changing my appointment and met my needs without hassle. From the moment I walked in I was greated with a friendly smile as well as an invitation to refreshments and a massage chair ! Once my appointment began, I was moved to ANOTHER massage chair where all the procedures took place. I had my choosing of any show on Netflix, on a tv on the ceiling during my appointment which helped me feel at ease! They used state of the art technology and explained everything they were doing as they were doing it, in order to make me feel as comfortable as possible. Dr. Lai explained everything to me in a manner that was easy to understand, and I truly felt cared for. Recommendations were made in conjunction with my insurance plan in order to ensure I paid as little out of my pocket as necessary. I've never looked forward to going to the dentist however I can't wait until my next appointment! I highly recommend Dr. Lai and her incredible team to anyone looking for a new dentist!

    So glad I decided to give Dr. Lai and her team a visit. My initial appointment was nothing but thorough. They conducted x-rays, took lots of pictures, completed a filling, and cleaned my teeth in one very pleasant 2-hour appointment. The office is modern, very clean, and at a great location nearby to my house. Dr Lai was amazingly knowledgable and sweet. Her team members were also stellar and so lovely to talk to. The office is super high tech with lots of massage chairs and they offered the option to watch Netflix on a big screen TV as you get your teeth done. I was beyond impressed with the thought and care behind their service. Would definitely recommend!!

    I can honestly say I have never had a more pleasurable trip to the Dentist. The entire process was comfortable and Dr. Lai and her assistant took the time to explain all aspects of my appointment so I knew what was going on- no surprises. The amount of knowledge Dr. Lai possesses when it comes to Dentistry is evident and I would trust her to perform any procedure when it comes to my oral health. Her recommendations were relevant to my needs and helpful. Also, who doesn't like watching Netflix on a massage chair while getting your teeth cleaned? 10/10! Thank you again for the wonderful appointment.
