Dr. Meetu Mahendra


My name is Dr. Meetu Mahendra. I graduated from University of Toronto, Faculty of Dentistry with Honors in 2005. Then I practiced in a small town dental practice in Port Perry for four years. 

In 2009 my husband (yes, that's the other Dr. Mahendra!) and I started practicing at Saginaw Dental Centre. 

Since childhood, I wanted to be a healthcare practitioner because of their ability to improve another person's quality of life. In my practice it is my goal to provide a relaxed patient-centric environment where the patient is educated about all treatment options and is encouraged to make an informed decision. 

Although, I like seeing patients of all age groups, treating children holds a special meaning in my heart and I love giving them a memorable dental visit so they have an appreciation for dentistry. It made my day when one of our youngest patients accompanying his big brother exclaimed, "When did you give him the needle? I didn't see it! Why didn't he cry?". It's great when our patients realize that visiting the dentist is nothing to be afraid of and is an important part of maintaining your oral health. 

I regularly take continuing education courses to stay updated in the latest advancements in dentistry. I am an active active member of ODA and RCDSO. 

I love to cook for my children , and spend time watching them grow - that is so entertaining! I also love to read fiction and news articles.

Dr. Tushar Mahendra, DDS

Dr. Tushar Mahendra


I received my first Dental degree with Honours, in 2000 from the prestigious University of Pune, India. I went on to compete a yearlong general dental practice residency at Dental Hospital attached to the University. I then taught at a Dental School for a brief period of time. I moved to Canada with my wife, Dr Meetu Mahendra in 2002. After a year of exams and tests, from a pool of 2000 eager foreign trained dentists, I gained admission into the University of Toronto's certification program for foreign trained dentists. 

I graduated from that program in 2005 with Honours. Since then, I have completed hundreds if not thousands of hours of continuing education to allow me to offer the best treatments to my patients. I have done Implant residencies with Dr Carl Misch and Dr Ken Hebel. After associating in practices in Cobourg and Port Perry,  Dr Meetu and I took over ownership and started practicing at Saginaw Dental Centre, January 5, 2009

When I am not with my patients, I am spending time with my lovely wife and two kids, the centre of my Universe. When my family has had enough of me, I am outside, walking my dog, on a twisty road (riding two wheels or four), hiking, kayaking in Tobermory or just working on my yard. I grew up in a military family , my father a decorated Veteran of the Indian Army. My parents taught me the values of family, honesty, discipline and hard work

You only live once my friends, but if you do it right, once is enough.
