#MeetDowntownBrampton: Park Place Dental Centre

What do you love most about running a small business?
I feel very privileged to have had the ability to surround myself with a dedicated team that gives my practice the type of environment that makes me happy to go to every day. With my chosen coworkers by my side, we strive to provide advanced quality care to our patients.

What inspired you to open your business?
I’ve wanted to be a dentist from a very young age. After graduating from University of Toronto in 1982, Brampton was the best place for me to start my practice. It was a fast growing community with affordable housing and great conveniences. I made the right choice! Today, my group practices are still growing, we see kids at Park Place Junior, General Dentists 4 Kids and adults here at Park Place Dental Centre. I have been able to grow my dental implant practice within the dental office. This has made me very happy.

What do you love most about our city/ downtown?
I love the vision our city planner has for the downtown; the future plans are great for the development of our multicultural city. My wife Mary and I raised our kids here and enjoyed the recreation centers, racket ball courts and overall community feeling. My friends and I now enjoy taking walks with our wives in our great park system. I feel very lucky to live and work in Brampton.

The freedom to make the decisions that will enhance my business.

What do you love most about our city/downtown?
Brampton offers a variety of cultures and therefore offers everything to suit us all. So many people are involved with making this restaurant an even better place and that is truly encouraging as a business owner. .
