Social Distancing

Masks, Social Distancing and Hand Hygiene

August is coming to an end and at Soho Dental, we have had another exciting month doing what we love to do!

Once again, a sincere thank you for everyone’s compliance to our safety protocols when coming in for your dental visit. Masks, social distancing and hand hygiene are the cornerstones to keeping everyone safe.

Aside from the visible safety measures that we have established, I wanted to bring awareness to some additional ones that are less obvious.

Every treatment room has a medical grade HEPA filtration unit to circulate the air and filter out contaminants multiple times per hour. These are running all the time during clinic hours.

All treatment rooms, common areas and furniture get fogged daily with a Health Canada approved disinfectant that sanitizes difficult to access surfaces.

These are just additional measures that may have benefit. Ultimately, the most important safety measures that we can all carry out during our daily activities in all environments are to wear a mask in indoor spaces, to maintain social distance and to sanitize our hands. Thank you so much for doing your part when you come to see us!

We are now booking appointments for cleanings and all other dental care for the upcoming months. Please feel free to email us to book your appointment. Most importantly, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to address your concerns and to keep us all safe!

Sincerely,

Dr Haji and the team at Soho Dental

Video – External Resorption

Dr. Feisel Haji works with a patient suffering from External Resorption at Soho Dental in Toronto, Canada.

External resorption is often caused by injuries to the mouth and teeth that cause swelling and loss of bone and tissue on and around a tooth. Such injuries may occur from prolonged use of orthodontic appliances such as braces, or from tooth grinding or tooth bleaching.

Dentist and Hygienist working side by side!

Those of you who came to Soho Dental this week for your appointment may have noticed that our hygienist, Tony, was seeing patients and providing a much needed service. ⁣

In Ontario, dentists and hygienists have their own regulatory colleges and there has been a lot of attention lately about the differences in their respective guidelines. ⁣

However, at Soho Dental we have always and continue to work harmoniously as a team, respecting the guidelines of both our colleges. ⁣

We will let the colleges figure it out. In the meantime, I’m so proud of the professionalism that my hygienists Tony, Michelle, Nikkita and Lisa have shown in rising above the “noise” in order to continue to work together as team for the benefit of our patients. ⁣

Bravo team Soho!

Sunrise

Waiting for Sunrise

Waiting for Sunrise 🌞

Photography has always been a passion of mine. I love the process, thinking about composition, colour and light and trying to capture those elements in a shot to convey my message.

I woke up very early to take this photograph. It was quite dark. It was cold. However, with time, the sun did rise and it was spectacular. The warm colours of the morning sunrise eclipsed everything that came before it.

The crisis that we are facing has cut through race, culture, socioeconomic status or any other division that we would wish to impose. It has made us realize our commonality as a global community and demands that we consider this in order to recover.

Let us all do our part. Social distancing, checking up on family and friends, ensuring that our elders have food and the support that they need. Let us ensure that we all meet at the other end stronger in body, mind and spirit.

The sun will rise.

Veneers and Composite Bonding

Sometimes very conservative treatment can reap significant changes. In the before picture our patient had two composite veneers (bonding) placed on the lateral incisors during youth. The bonding had changed colour and our patient was ready to improve her overall smile.

I replaced the composite veneers with porcelain to ensure a better colour match between the veneered teeth and its neighbours. I also lengthened the teeth slightly with the veneers to make them more in proportion to the two central incisors.

The bonding on the left central incisors was beginning to show its age. This was simply replaced with new bonding but in doing so I evened out the edges of the two central incisors.

The treatment was simple but the resulting change is quite noticeable. We made a pretty smile just a little bit prettier!

restoring smiles award

Dr. Haji Wins “Restoring Smiles” Award

Thank you to Restoring Smiles and Dr. Tina Meisami ⁣

I was quite taken by surprise to receive an award for my work with Restoring Smiles. It has been an honour and privilege to be a part of an amazing team of dentists and volunteers who want to give back. ⁣

Restoring Smiles provides free dental services to women who have survived domestic violence. Patients self-identify as survivors of domestic abuse, and all are currently living in shelters or supportive housing.⁣

Restoring Smiles’ goal is to eliminate pain, restore function and proper speech, and to some degree, alleviate the emotional trauma that arises as a result of domestic violence. The group provides dental treatment as a concrete and real way to help end our patients’ experience with domestic violence and to support her recovery process.⁣

Please visit their website for more information about the organization and ways to help. https://www.drbmeisamifoundation.com/about/restoring-smiles/
