Dr. Tom Karkanis

General Dentist

Dr. Tom Karkanis, General Dentist. Dr. Karkanis’ passion for bringing modern dentistry to his patients is fuelled by his unique combination of dental expertise (he’s a graduate of the University of Western Ontario’s Dental School), strong scientific background (he also has a PhD in Cellular Physiology), and facility with computer technology.

Dr. Karkanis provides all aspects of cosmetic, laser, and advanced restorative dentistry in his practice.  His patients benefit from the many solutions he offers, including Cerec 1-visit crowns, Invisalign® clear braces, and oral sedation.

Outside of his practice, Tom is an avid fan of music, Tom received his Performer’s Diploma in piano from London’s Trinity College in 1991, and in his free time also enjoys competitive gaming, skiing and squash.

Dr. Aaron Phan

Dr. Aaron Phan

General Dentist

Dr. Aaron Phan was born and raised in Calgary. He lived there his entire life before moving to Sydney Australia where he studied for 4 years and achieved his DMD. Through his time there, he has developed a special interest in oral surgery and general restorative work, but he aims to be a well-rounded general practitioner. 

When dentistry isn’t on his mind, he’s probably thinking about what he’s going to eat for his next meal. He loves food! Dr. Phan enjoys cooking it as much as he does eating it, and he loves trying new dishes and cuisines. Dr. Phan also enjoys traveling, golfing, and is a huge hockey fan (He cheers for the Flames, sorry!). He’s a bit of a techie as well. Whether it be playing games to wind down or tinkering with his computer.
