Our Dentists

Dr. Marlene Morrow & Dr. Samuel Mincer both graduated from the University of Toronto, Faculty of Dentistry in 1988 where Dr Mincer received an award in clinical oral surgery and Dr Morrow received awards in clinical paedodontics.

In 1989, shortly after graduating and getting married, they decided to open a dental practice together on Avenue Road in order to service the community in which they live. They enjoy taking the time to get to know their patients, understand their concerns and ultimately work with their patients to achieve and maintain optimal oral health and wellness. After more than 30 years in this location, they continue to strive to provide their community members with quality, comprehensive dental care for the entire family. In order to meet the overwhelming request of their patients to have all dental needs addressed in one location where they have already developed a relationship of trust, the Dr’s have expanded their practice, assembling a team of experienced professionals. Dr Morrow and Dr Mincer are proud to have created a welcoming state-of-the-art facility offering all facets of dentistry with a focus on family, cosmetic and implant dentistry.

Dr Morrow and Dr Mincer regularly attend continuing education dental programs to stay abreast of the most current treatment modalities. In their spare time, Dr Morrow and Dr Mincer enjoy spending time with their 3 wonderful daughters- travelling, cooking, exercising and supporting community events.This has become a bit more challenging as Reeva their eldest daughter currently resides in Los Angeles and is a staff dentist & lecturer, Division of Advanced Prosthodontics, UCLA School of Dentistry. Jacqueline is currently entering her third year of medical school at the Faculty of Medicine, Dalhousie University. And Melanie is currently entering her third year of dental school at the University of Minnesota, School of Dentistry.
