Dr. Halim Sbenati, Cosmetic and Family Dentist.
Halim Sbenati, BSc (Hon), DDS.
I grew up in Montreal, and then Ottawa, where I developed life long friends that I still keep in touch with to this day.
My youth was filled with sports, video games, time with family and other awesome activities with friends. I love dancing. When I was younger, I used to sneak out of the house to go dancing without my parents knowing….they still don’t know lol (well, now, they will).
Then we moved to London where I went to the University of Western Ontario (now Western University) for my undergraduate studies in Biology. And then my friend and I decided to go to Australia to study at the University of Sydney School of Dentistry - and to pursue our dreams of becoming dentists while being close to the coast! (I’m very much a beach kind of guy).
I consider myself an artist - but I also love helping people and that’s where the business aspect came in. I see business as a way to help others realize their dreams. Dentistry to me isn’t just a career, it’s a calling to be able to change people’s lives. Whether it's through education or through smile transformation - whatever it is, I am invested in people and seeing them become the version of themself that they had always wished to be. This is something I can’t explain in terms of how much happiness and joy it gives me.
I have always been fascinated by how much dental visits strike fear in people’s minds - the level of anxiety that people experience is incredible. I want to change all of that. I have always had a vision of people coming to our dental office and really not knowing that they are at a dental office. I want people to experience service like they’ve never experienced before. That’s why we developed the World Class Dental Service - which means we pay very close attention to the needs and comfort of everyone who walks through the door. From the moment you walk in, you will realize you’re not just another patient, you are a person who deserves respect, transparency, and extraordinary care. And I want that to become the standard to which patients expect at each dental visit.
I love reading, been to the gym a few times ;), and love spending time with family and friends. Also, scenic walks really do it for me.
