Celebrity Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Sam Saleh, is a Leader in Same-Day Dentistry; Renowned cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sam Saleh, utilizes CAD-CAM technology to offer patients a new smile in hours

 In order to fabricate a crown, implant crown, bridge, or veneer, the standard but outdated method used is to take an impression of the patient's teeth using a tray filled with impression material. Whilst this method is still widely used, the process can be time-consuming, uncomfortable, and subject to error. This is due to dentists having to send the impression to a lab that would then fabricate the restoration to send back to the dentist. On the subsequent visit, the dentist places the restoration in the patient's mouth. The revolutionary Planscan system by Planmeca, a digital scanning technology used by Dr. Sam Saleh at ORA Dentistry Spa, allows patients to receive the restorative dentistry they need without the typical pitfalls of traditional dental impressions. Here are three reasons whysame-day dentistrywith Dr. Saleh has revolutionized the restorative dental experience.

'Fake dentist' one of many, expert fears; Case raises concern about extent of illegal practitioners in Ontario

The case of a "fake dentist" who continued running his Etobicoke basement practice three years after a court order banned him from doing so is raising concerns about the number of illegal dentists operating in Ontario.

In November, a Superior Court judge handed Bogdan Pavlyshyn a conditional sentence of house arrest for 90 days, after finding him in contempt of court for violating a 2011 court order. That order prohibited Pavlyshyn from practising dentistry without a licence in Ontario and from purporting to be a dentist.

Items seized from his home in March included scalpel blades, high-speed dental drills, dental implants, needles, local anesthetic and an x-ray sensor, according to court documents.

"I knew what I was doing was wrong. But I did it anyway," Pavlyshyn said in a statement of apology, which he read to the court in Ukrainian, according to his lawyer.
