Dr. Waks came into dentistry with a mission. When she was young, she had oral surgery twice and braces twice, intensive jaw splint therapy and then permanent retainers, which she wears to this day! Her two kids have also endured their share of dental ups and downs, including braces and oral surgery. With such a frantic family dental history, her burning desire has always been to eliminate as much of the anxiety and pain as possible for patients, regardless of dental work performed. Call it a case of “been there, done that, don’t want others to suffer.”
Dr. Waks earned a Bachelor of Health Sciences (with distinction) at Western University, followed by a Doctor of Dental Surgery at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry.
Dr. Waks is approachable, detail-oriented and always esthetically minded. She collects and creates art, and when not working on a new piece, she is creating delicious meals with her family. She’s also an Apple Fitness, Madfit, and Beachbody aficionado, waking up at 5:30 am daily to get her work-out in before the day begins. Of course, she balances that out with regular Dairy Queen Oreo Blizzards.
