Meet a Dentist at 20 Finch Dental
My name is Dr. Linda Chau, and I am proud dentist at 20 Finch Dental. I have been practising dentistry for over 7 years. Prior to graduation, I worked as a dental assistant while I was in dental school, which allowed me to get some great hands-on practice in the field. From an early age, I knew I wanted to make a tangible difference in people's lives. Growing up, I had witnessed many of my family members undergoing extensive filings, extractions and root canal treatment. These experiences allowed me to develop a deep understanding of the suffering people experience with toothaches and infections and coaxed me to think about prevention. Dentistry was a path that allowed me to combine my drive for excellence, creative aspirations and desire to improve people's lives in a compassionate manner.
Our philosophy at 20 Finch Dental is: Gentle and empathetic care that is patient Driven. I run my practice based on respect, empathy, integrity and excellence. In terms of how business today compares to years ago, I would have to say that technology has been one of the concrete changes to dentistry. We have ready access to intraoral cameras, 3D scanners, 3D printers and cone-beam CT. Instead of just informing my patients about what I see, I can show them exactly what is going on, and we can work together to develop a much more personalized approach to their dental care that also empowers them with the knowledge and skills to maintain their oral health. At my practice we pride ourselves in ensuring that our patients feel warmly cared for and that all treatment options have been thoroughly explored and explained.
During my downtime from work, my family keeps me very busy. I have a young child who is active from sunrise to sunset, so I get lots of exercise. However, when I can sneak a little time in for myself, I enjoy jogging, baking and reading. I also love to discover the best food Toronto has to offer!
