Dr. Hisham Kaloti, DDS
Founder, Smile Stylist
Dr. Kaloti, owner and founder of cosmetic dental clinic Smile Stylist, and known as “the” smile stylist, discusses cosmetic dentistry and why it’s an important option for Canadians.
How is cosmetic dentistry different in Canada than elsewhere?
In Canada, cosmetic dentistry is practised by every general dentist, so in reality every general dentist is a cosmetic dentist. However, most practices, big and small, are very busy recovering from a limited access to dentistry during the early COVID days.
Why is having access to cosmetic dentistry an important option for patients?
Today’s dental patient expects that all their dental care will be cosmetically enhancing and esthetically pleasing, and rightfully so. A focus on oral health is a big component of any esthetically-driven dental practice.
How have you seen this field of dentistry change due to COVID-19? In what way?
We faced many challenges due to the pandemic. We took the advice with the guidelines that were given, and our patients and staff were our top priority.
What’s a piece of advice you would give to patients who are looking to explore a cosmetic dental procedure?
Explore your options. Define your perfect smile and feel confident with your decision.
