Meet Our Team

Dr. Gary Kerhoulas, DDS

Dr. Gary Kerhoulas graduated from University of Toronto’s Faculty of Dentistry, Class of ’83 and practiced family dentistry in Mississauga for over 30 years.

The Institute’s philosophy is based on elevating the standards of care for dental patients around the world by advancing the professional knowledge and personal fulfillment of the individual dentist. This paradigm, along with his body of work formed the foundation for Kerhoulas Dental…the smile you want, which debuted in May 2006.

Comfort, relaxation and personal service are delivered to patients of all ages in a friendly, spa inspired environment. Further to this theme, Dr. Kerhoulas offers comprehensive dental treatment in The Studio… a private retreat located on the upper level of the main practice.
