I am Dr. Gharai, owner of Vic Park Dental. We are a prevention based family dental office with fantastic and long-standing staff members. The practice has been in the Agincourt community for over 50 years, and was relocated to its current location at the Shoppers Drug Mart building in 2013. I have run this practice since 2001, and have had the pleasure of serving its wonderful patients since then. We offer a wide range of dental services from fillings and cleanings to full smile makeovers. Our focus is always prevention as regular preventive care goes a long way in keeping your teeth for life.
