Dadswell Denture Clinic is a full-service denture provider specializing in complete dentures, partial dentures, implant-retained dentures, and immediate dentures. Originally from Scarborough owner, Kim Dadswell graduated in 1996 with Honours from George Brown College, where she studied Denturism. After graduating, Kim moved to Collingwood and was a Denturist Associate at the Reekie Clinic on Pine St. In 1998 she purchased the clinic and has been practicing at the same location independently as Dadswell Denture Clinic.
“I chose to be a Denturist because I have a creative outlet, and I enjoy helping others. Dentures replace missing teeth due to an injury, tooth decay, or gum disease and help improve the digestive system. Denturism allows me to make dentures for patients so that they can eat and speak with confidence as well as have a beautiful smile.”
As a Denturist, Kim is constantly keeping up-to-date with ever-changing technology and is continuously furthering her education and training by attending seminars, additional courses, and workshops to perfect and master the advanced techniques she uses daily in her practice. She is determined to give her patients the best fitting dentures and services. A big part of this is updating and upgrading the techniques, materials, and equipment used at the clinic. At Dadswell Denture Clinic, they have integrated digital dentures into their process, creating the highest quality dentures in their modern in-house lab. Their specialty is making personalized custom-fitted dentures. Having a lab on the premises also allows for repairs and relines as a same-day service without sending them out. This service is cost-effective for patients, and they appreciate having their dentures back promptly.
Kim has two incredible staff who are committed, enthusiastic, and go above and beyond to help keep everything running smoothly at the clinic. Sarah is the Office Assistant; her kind and gentle nature ensure that patients feel welcomed and comfortable at the clinic. Cindy is the Office Manager; she enjoys interacting with patients and strives to ensure that every visit
When asked what she enjoys the most about her job Kim replied, “I enjoy seeing the patient’s reaction after I have inserted their new dentures. I always take a ‘Before’ and ‘After’ picture of every patient. Sometimes it’s like a mini-makeover, and they get so excited. We see tears of joy in the clinic, and I get lots of hugs! We care about every patient!”
Patients feel very comfortable with our friendly, knowledgeable staff. We are professional and treat everyone with respect by listening to their needs. We offer complimentary consultations with no obligations and provide written estimates to each patient. We provide quality products and fair pricing and work closely with local dentists to provide patients with the best treatment for them. Our patients are wonderful and loyal. I have patients that continue to book appointments with us regularly since I first started. Every day is a new challenge. Some patients might only be missing one tooth, whereas another patient might not have any teeth. Everyone has different needs and requirements. Upon examination, I must then determine the best possible treatment plan for them.
Most of the patients at Dadswell are adults, although dentures are for anybody missing one or more of their teeth. They offer various services and types of dentures to satisfy each patient’s specific requirements Complete & Partial Dentures, Flexible Partials, Immediate Dentures, Implant Retained Dentures, 3D Digital Dentures, Relines, Repairs, Teeth Whitening, Cleaning Products, and Mouthguards.
Like most businesses, Covid 19 has affected Dadswell Denture Clinic in many ways. There is a lot of extra work and additional expenses. Their schedule is modified to allow 15 minutes between patients for extra cleaning, disinfection, sterilization, and social distancing. Thus, cutting the number of patients seen by 1/2 each day. Each patient is called the day before their appointment for prescreening of Covid, upon arrival all patients must always wear a mask (excluded during their oral exam) and sanitize their hands. Staff must take their temperature, do another screening, scan it in the computer, and ask patients to perform an oral rinse before having the exam. Walk-ins are no longer accepted as it is now by appointment only. Only the patient is allowed in the clinic unless they require a caregiver. They have to purchase extra sanitizer, cleaning products, PPE, including masks, gowns, gloves, shields, and goggles for all staff, increase the number of Surgically Clean Air Units in the clinic, and put up plexiglass at reception.
Most Denturists’ fees are covered by dental plans, Veterans Affairs, Social Services, NIHB and other private insurance companies. Replacing your natural teeth is more than trusting someone with your smile. Request an appointment for a free consultation to discuss a treatment plan for you to let your smile shine through!
