DR. BESHOY TAWFIK

Dentist

Hello! My name is Dr. Beshoy and I would like to thank you for choosing Scarborough Dental and Orthodontics. I believe that it is always important to provide excellent quality dental care in a caring and comfortable environment. My patients’ concerns, expectations and wishes are a priority in all my treatment plans for them.

I was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt. In 2007, I graduated from Ain Shams University in Cairo with an Honours degree in Dentistry. In 2011, I moved to Montreal, where I took my National Dental Board exams at the University of Montreal. I then moved to Alberta, where I practiced dentistry for four years. As a lifelong learner who is passionate about dentistry, I took a variety of courses including a mini-residency implant program for over a year in Alberta. This made me a member of the ICOI (International Congress of Oral Implantologists). I’m also a part of the Progressive Orthodontic Seminars, a two year program that enhances one’s knowledge about Occlusion and TMJ for a better orthodontic treatment planning for patients. I’m proud of this great addition to my experiential knowledge base.

I live in Ancaster with my wife and two young daughters. As much as I enjoy the challenges of dentistry and keep my knowledge and skills up to date with continuing education, I also love to spend time with my family and watch my daughters grow.

SAMTA CHANANA

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello everyone! My name is Samta and I welcome you all to Scarborough Dental and Orthodontics. I have had the pleasure to work at SDO for over 22 years now. From seeing patients arriving in their baby strollers or in school uniforms to now seeing them graduate or bringing their little ones into the practice, it has been nothing short of a fulfilling journey.
I was born and raised in Amritsar and thereafter in Delhi, India. After graduating in Bachelor of Science from Lady Irwin College, Delhi University, I moved to Canada in 1997. After completing a two year program in Dental Hygiene at George Brown College in 2000, I joined Dr. Richardson at SDO in 2001. As a member of College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario and Ontario Dental Hygienists Association, I actively participate in Quality Assurance Program with continuing education every year to stay abreast with current research and findings.
Over the years, at SDO, I am grateful to all our patients for having allowed me to be part of their lives. Nothing makes me happier than being able to empower them to better take care of their oral health and make a positive change in their lives. I strive to continue to see your happy smiles as we grow together as a family!

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING

“Courteous and accommodating staff. Great conversation (when you can speak), clean facilities. Make you feel very comfortable. I normally do t like going to the dentist (painful memories) but this group made the experience quite enjoyable.”

Yvette Wong

“I just had my first consultation with Dr. Richardson, and I was very impressed! He's positive, fun, and caring. He gave me a really in-depth explanation of what's going on with my teeth. With dentists in the past, I didn't get a full understanding of the issues as well as a look at detailed X-Rays and charts. The other staff were also super nice! I'm actually looking forward to going back.”

Bill Ward

“Dr. Ron Richardson is an Awesome dentist with great sense of humor. He is very caring, takes sufficient time to make proper diagnosis. Explain the procedure clearly beforehand and makes you feel comfortable and easy. The staff are fantastic! Friendly and professional. Highly Recommend!”
