About

Dr. Kelsey Li received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Western University. She is committed to continuing education and keeping up with the latest research in her rapidly-evolving profession. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, cooking, and spending time with her family.

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

Dentistry is a confusing and foreign thing to most people. Crowns? Root canals? Implants? It can all be overwhelming. My primary focus is to understand the needs of my patients and educate them in order to select the most optimal treatment. Every explanation is thorough, concise, and never rushed.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

1. Cosmetic dentistry 2. Restorative dentistry – including fillings, crowns, and bridges 3. Extractions

What are you proud of in your practice?

My attention to detail. They say the devil’s in the detail and this could not be more true when it comes to dentistry, as half a millimetre could make all the difference. It’s better to do something right than fast. It’s all about being focused and meticulous, while not losing sight of the bigger picture.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

While I enjoy all aspects of dentistry (it’s the variety that keeps it exciting!), there’s nothing quite as rewarding as emergency and cosmetic cases. Both allow me to give patients back their smile – one by relieving excruciating pain, and another by giving unexpected confidence.

    Kelsey was super friendly and professional! Gave me tips on how to care for the mouth guard that I got and was open to all of my questions. The receptionists were very friendly and the clinic was extremely clean and comfortable. Would recommend!

    I have gone to the same dentist for 17 years and needed to find a new one after moving to Toronto. Waterview dental is very clean and even have large TVs to watch Friends while you are in the dentist chair. They are very kind and thorough and Dr.Kelsey was very nice, gentle, and accommodating. She really took the time to explain everything.

    Waterview Dental made us feel welcomed and comfortable during my sons visit. He’s 4 years old, and it was his first visiting a dentist. They were very gentle with him, while he was watching Paw Patrol on the tv.

    Kelsey was such a sweetheart and we had a good few laughs which is surprising to have done at a dentist office!! She cleaned my teeth so thoroughly, educated me on gum health and gave me very good advice to keep my gums healthy. Loved it!

    Extremely long wait times to get an evening appointment. Waited 4 months. Location convenient for me however there’s 2 other great dentists within the same area. This ones ok, they pack the chairs super close to each other you can hear everything going on around you. They renovated but more modern clinics in the area. Friendly receptionist!

    I went for a Comprehensive exam recently. Dr. Li and the team at Waterview Dental were efficient and thorough. Completed my tests and got my results right away. Dr. Li was helpful in explaining the process and course of treatment. The office is accessible by transit and they directly bill my insurance provider which is a bonus. I’ve already booked my follow up appointment. Highly recommend this clinic!

    She was very nice, gentle and understanding of my situation and needs. Despite being very nervous, I felt settled and comfortable, not only with Dr. Li but as well with the other staff that were apart of my appointment needs. She explained everything in detail as to a treatment plan. I would strongly recommend Dr. Li and Waterview Dental.

    Excellent customer service. I'm nervous at the dentist but the whole staff made me feel welcome and relaxed. They kept my appointment time despite being quite busy, and made sure to explain everything thoroughly. We set up a care plan right away and they were able to book me within 2 weeks to start treatment.

    Dr Li was fantastic, one of the best dentist experiences I've had! She was friendly, knowledgeable, and sensitive. I hadn't been to the dentist in a couple of years due to moving around a lot. As such my teeth weren't in the best condition she was clear in her explanations of treatment I needed and tactful too. I had a full new-patient in-take with the clinic which was also very smooth, including x-rays and photographs. All of the staff were professional and friendly, and the 8am appointment option was ideal.
