About

Dr. Aadil Shamji was born and raised in Waterloo, Ontario. He attended Western University in London, Ontario where he graduated on the Dean’s list with an Honours Bachelor of Science degree. He was then accepted to the Boston University School of Dental Medicine, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2013. After completing his dental degree, Aadil completed an optional 1-year residency program at Western University specializing in hospital based dentistry. Here, he received extensive experience in emergency treatment, caring for the medically compromised and those with special needs, as well as the use of sedation. He holds a certificate in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, is a member of the Ontario Dental Association, the Registered College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, the Waterloo-Wellington Dental Society as well as the Toronto Crown and Bridge Study Club to keep up to date with the newest techniques and technology. Aadil married in 2013 to his beautiful wife who he met while attending Western University in 2005. In 2017 they welcomed a baby boy into their family and they could not be happier! When he is not at the office or at home with his family, you can be sure he is either playing or watching sports! His favourites include tennis, squash, golf and hockey. Playing baseball for the City of Waterloo growing up, he earned 2 Ontario Baseball Association Championships. Aside from sports, he has strong aspirations of travelling abroad to establish more sustainable dental care in underserved communities. While Aadil enjoys practicing a broad range of procedures, he particularly loves working with children. He discovered this passion for children while rotating at a pediatric dental facility in Fort Myers, Florida during his dental education. Aadil is excited to be working at Trillium and looks forward to brightening smiles in his hometown!

    Didnt meet the dentist himself, just went in for cleaning. Nothing overly special that would make it a great visit but overall decent.. very comfy chairs and a TV to keep you occupied.

    Although I didn't have Dr Shamji as my dentist, every staff member at this location was extremely friendly, and helpful with any questions I had. I would highly recommend going to this location.

    Very friendly staff and great facility. Attentive and appear to really want to help patients. Was aware of my lack of insurance and did a great job making sure I got the best care and explaining the process and cost.

    Dr Shamji and his team were very professional. I didn't have to wait for more than a minute until my appointment. The checkup and teeth cleaning service were fantastic. When I did my teeth cleaning from my last dentist, I had to wait half an hour to an hour and my gums usually hurt after. That did not happen with Dr. Shamji. After Dr. Shamji inquired about my teeth cleaning habit, he recommended me to come in every 6 months. I really appreciate him for that, especially when others would just recommend you to come as often as you can. But he understood my situation perfectly.

    I had a great experience overall! I had to bring my 4 year old to my emergency appointment and both the dentist and dental hygienist were incredibly friendly with my son. I felt comfortable and relaxed throughout.

    Only saw the hygienist Jack and he was nice. Did a great job. Only trouble is they couldn't figure out how to link my insurance provider because their system is new and my insurance is from BC. Will go again.

    I came in without seeing a dentist for a bit (I had moved to this area from NS and never got around to making it a priority). I was pretty nervous going in but the staff was very welcoming and made me feel very comfortable. I appreciated that I could see my file/X-rays on the monitor in front of me when I was sitting in the chair. 1010 would recommend.

    The Hygienist is super. She was very careful with cleaning and gentle, since this was my first time there and i had fear of going there to begin with. The Dentist is very friendly and talks openly about your teeth. He did not try to pressure me with what has to be done but told me how to maintain and gave me a tip on how to improve my routine at home... overall i am very satisfied with my experience there and will continue to see them routinely😁

    Aadil and his team are great! There is also an option if you are not a phone person to book appointments via text. I recommend visiting Aadil for his calm demeanor, and professionalism. This dentist office is also open weekends so it makes it very flexible for my schedule.

    The dental hygienist (Jen) did an excellent job, was very detailed and was very aware of anything that may be uncomfortable. They have TVs on the ceiling to keep you entertained as well as a TV on the wall so you see the same screen that the staff are reviewing / editing during the appointment. Overall, I'm happy with the services. They are located in Conestoga mall if you can tie your visit to some errands you have to do at the mall it makes the location that much more convenient.

    The front desk was welcoming. The dental hygienist was thorough and didn’t rush cleaning my teeth. Dr Shamji showed me the x-rays and told me what next he wanted to do.
