Invisalign – What Is It?



Invisalign is a popular treatment done at Collingwood Dental to straighten teeth and the results are amazing!

Invisalign™ straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of clear aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, to gradually shift your teeth into place until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life.

Invisalign™ can effectively treat mild to severe cases, including underbite, overbite, overcrowding and gaps between teeth.

If you’ve had braces yourself, you already know the issues associated with metal wires and brackets. With Invisalign™ orthodontics from Collingwood Dental Centre, the aligners are removable so patients can play sports without the worry of being hit in the mouth by a ball – which can cause real damage in braces. They can also continue playing musical instruments properly without braces getting in the way.

With braces, there is a long list of foods you shouldn’t eat, from popcorn to apples and raw carrots. With Invisalign™, there are no such restrictions. The removable aligners make it easy to brush and floss normally to maintain proper oral hygiene.

Ask us if Invisalign treatment is right for you!


New Year, New Smile! Meet Dr. Reid



Dr. Robert Reid has been practising dentistry in Collingwood for almost 30 years. He moved to Collingwood in 1990 from Toronto to start a practice, raise a young family and enjoy the beautiful Niagara Escarpment, and has never looked back.

While enjoying all aspects of dentistry, Dr. Reid has a particular interest in orthodontics and dental implants. He treats patients that require braces and functional appliances and also provides orthodontic treatment with Invisalign™ aligners. These are an invisible alternative to braces. Dr. Reid finds it rewarding to restore smiles.

Dr. Reid is an active volunteer in the community. He belongs to the Collingwood Rotary Club and volunteers for our local YMCA. He takes advantage of our beautiful area and stays active by road cycling and entering triathlon events each summer.

Dr. Reid looks forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your dental New Year’s goals!


Holiday Tips For Your Teeth!



The holidays are fast approaching and it can be a very busy time! We’ve summarized the following principles to ensure a tooth-healthy holiday season.

~Candy: It’s almost inevitable during the holidays, there’s going to be chocolate and sweets. It’s fine to indulge, but let’s minimize the damage to your teeth! Eat sweets in moderation and chew xylitol containing gum or sugar-free gum afterward to clean teeth and prepare them for brushing. Be sure to brush and floss extra-thoroughly to remove excess sugars and particles from the mouth.

~Brush: Toothbrushes make great family stocking stuffers! Brush your teeth twice daily, for two minutes each time, using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months or when the bristles look frayed.

~Floss: It’s vital to clean the food particles and plaque from between your teeth. Floss once daily, taking 2-3 minutes each day to.

~Visit Your Dentist Now: A cavity or other oral emergency can be upsetting and interrupt your plans. The year often only gets busier from here on out, so take the time to look after your oral health!


Meet Dr. Zain!



Hi! My name is Dr. Zain and I have been practicing dentistry at the Collingwood Dental Centre for over 8 years.

I specialize in working with patients who are nervous or experience anxiety when visiting us, regardless of age.  I love working with kids to help instill good oral hygiene and provide them with a positive dental experience early on.

My background in sedation allows me to help adult patients feel more at ease and undergo treatments with as little discomfort as possible.  Our experienced team aims to have each visit begin and end with a smile!

Outside of the clinic, I enjoy exploring our scenic area by hiking, road cycling and even scuba diving in the crystal clear waters of Tobermory (brrr!).  My 3-year old, Zareen’s favourite hike is the Lorree Forest Loop, so you may find us there quite often!  I also try to take every opportunity to travel with my wife Zahra and Zareen to experience the beauty and people of the rest of the world.

I look forward to meeting you and do hope you call our dental team your family one day soon!


We love Collingwood – throwback to our past charity initiatives



On April 1st The PLAQUE PEDDLER’S rode their hearts out at our local YMCA as their way of ‘Moving to Give’. This year we had 15-20 Participants, including all of our Dentists!

Last November our dental team at Collingwood Dental Centre had the privilege of being able to give back to the community, by providing a day of free dentistry for the people of Collingwood region. This free dental clinic was the first of its kind in Collingwood and it was a huge success!

In June of 2016 as part of the Guatemala Outreach Mission, Collingwood Dental generously donated local dental anaesthetics for the cause.  Pictured here is Dr. Lun accepting the donation from Dr. Mohammed Saigar on behalf of Collingwood Dental Center.

For the first Guatemala Outreach Mission back in November 2015 Dr. Saigar and his assistant Jade packed up $6000 worth of dental supplies for the mission, courtesy of the Rotary Club of Collingwood and the Rotary Club of SGB.

Bowling for a cause! In March of 2016, our wonderful Collingwood Dental Centre Team raised $500 on Friday bowling for Big Brother Big Sisters of the Georgian Triangle!

Back in summer of 2015 our team at Collingwood Dental traded in their medical gloves for work gloves and spent the day helping build for Habitat for Humanity!
