About

I received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the University of Manitoba in 1996 and afterwards completed my residency at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. I am a member of the Ontario Dental Association and currently serve as the President of the Toronto Central Dental Society. I'm also involved with the founding and development of 'Restoring Smiles', a non-profit organization that provides free dental treatment to women who have suffered physical abuse. In addition I am a clinical instructor at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Dentistry.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating all cases but especially enjoy helping people with dental anxiety feel more comfortable in the dentist's chair.

    Dr. Varshney and her team are a gem! They make you feel welcomed and took good care of me. Her hygienist Jackie was really careful and precise with her cleaning. I definitely recommend.

    Dr. Renu Varshney was truly wonderful. She made the anxiety of not having gone to the dentist for a few years that much easier. She was so easy to open up to and she was careful to explain every detail of what she was doing. She was caring, friendly and herself and her team did a fantastic job. I couldn’t be more happy that I chose her and her practice!

    No problems with the dentist, though I am rather concerned that my 75$ gift card and the 100$ referral bonuses I am supposed to receive aren’t coming in, it’s been over a week since my first visit and I have read some reviews of people never receiving their promised gift card. Since I have no way to contact Opencare, I haven’t been told when my gift card will be received and it’s not ideal to be kept in the dark like that.

    Dr. Varshney was great. I'm anxious about dentists but she and her staff put me at ease. Her communication, about the appointment as a whole and each individual step, was excellent; she really wanted to make sure I knew what was happening and was open to questions and concerns. This was the best dentist visit I've had in a very long time. I highly recommend Dr. Varshney.

    I really disliked the dentist... until today. Best experience I’ve ever had. Dr. Varshnay and Ramila (the hygienist) were amazing, helpful, calming, and did not guilt me for clearly not flossing as much as I should. Looking forward to my next visit!

    The office was easy to find, the person at the front desk was very kind and funny, my hygienist was great and Dr. Varshney was much different than any other dentist I've ever seen. In a good way! She took her time to explain everything she was doing, was very pleasant and kind in demeanour and I didn't feel like she was in a rush to see the next patient (which I've always felt with other dentists I've seen in the past). The office is small and the building is a bit dated but the view form the chair is nice!

    My first time going to the dentist in about 3 years and Dr Varshney was very knowledgable,friendly, and attentive. The cleaning was also painless and thorough, with the unexpected bonus of massage chairs! I don't have any anxiety about going to the dentist but I can tell that if you do they'll be very supportive and kind. If you're looking for a dentist in this area I highly recommend Dr Varshney and her team!

    Dr. Varshney is lovely and attentive. She knew I was a very nervous patient coming from a bad experience at another dentist's practice. She gave me options and explained everything to me every step of the way. Ryan is an incredible hygienist who made me feel so comfortable. He offered to freeze my gums for the cleaning with a topical agent. My gums are sensitive so it helped in a really big way. I usually get so stressed during cleanings but Ryan made the experience easy breezy. My teeth feel so clean and I'm actually looking forward to going back in 4 months. That would never be the case at my previous dentist.

    Dr. Varshney is great, and everyone I met at the office is great. I was initially made to feel very welcome when I arrived, and I remained comfortable throughout my visit. The chair has a massage function. That's not something I've experienced at the dentist before. I'm going back soon, and I'm looking forward to it.
