I am Dr. Andrew Kay, a certified specialist in Periodontology. Since 2002, my practice philosophy and goal is to deliver excellent, accessible and affordable evidence-based dental treatment and patient care. We treat our patients like family, and strive to provide a comforting, caring and stress-free environment.
My background includes three years of full-time post-graduate training at the University of Toronto plus a rigorous fellowship examination prior to receiving my fellowship from the Royal College of Dentists of Canada. As a specialist in Periodontics, I successfully completed three years of post-dental school training in the placement of dental implants and treating diseases and conditions which affect the gums and supporting structures of teeth.
My commitment to providing the absolute best patient care means I stay actively involved in researching the latest advancements and best practices in periodontology, implants and bone biology.
I have done extensive research in the orthopedic and dental implant field. My work has been published in various dental and medical journals and I often speak at international conferences. I have also served on many committees with the CDA, ODA, Alpha Omega and the Dental Examining Board.
As your periodontist, I will proactively work in partnership with your dentist to provide optimal health for your gums and deliver a pleasing aesthetic result.
I have been working in dental offices since 2004. I enjoy watching movies in my free time, eating, and traveling when I get the chance to.
What I enjoy about my the job is connecting with people and helping them in some way to improve their oral health. I hope that I can make a difference by making dental treatment more comfortable and pleasant for patients and create an environment where patients feel that they can trust their health to our care.
I have worked in dental offices for many years, either part-time or full-time while obtaining my undergraduate degree from the University of Toronto, and my graduate degree from the University of Ottawa. Throughout my educational career and now years later, something has always brought me back to the dental office.
I enjoy the daily interactions with patients – getting to know each person and learning a little bit about their life each time they enter our office. It is also my pleasure to ensure patients receive the best possible care our clinic can offer by providing them with necessary information prior to their dental visits as well as ensuring effective aftercare.
I have a passion for the outdoors and in my spare time I enjoy an active lifestyle which includes practising and teaching yoga, as well as swimming and hiking when the weather permits. I also enjoy reading and learning, taking walks with my dog, as well as travelling when I am able to.

I have been working with Dr. Kay for the last 2 years. I graduated in 1992 from Career Canada College as a Dental Assistant then attained my Level II status in 2010 from George Brown College.
After I was granted my immigrant status, I pursued Dental Assisting – my first career choice. I have now been working as a dental assistant for over 20 years. After all this time I still enjoy learning about new treatment techniques and procedures.
Every summer, my family does lots of exploring. We drive to the countryside and find the most quiet place to enjoy the day for fishing, barbecuing, swimming, etc.
