Dr. Meetu Mahendra

Dentist

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

Dentist

I graduated from Dental School at Pune University India in 2000 and went on to do a rigorous one year general residency. After practicing for a year, I taught at a dental school in Lucknow, India. 

I moved to Canada in 2002, cleared the eligibility exam, and from a pool of 1,500 foreign trained dentists, was selected into Dalhousie University and University of Toronto to join the re-certification program. In 2005 I completed the intensive two year program with Honors from University of Toronto. 

Afterwards I worked as an associate in Cobourg and Port Perry before practising at Saginaw Dental Centre with my wife, Dr. Meetu Mahendra. 

I am very committed to learning more about the field of dentistry. I've completed many hours of continuing education courses and completed implant mini residency with Dr. Ken Hebel and Dr. Carle Misch. 

I am a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, the Ontario Dental Association and the Wellington - Waterloo Dental Association. 

I am happily married to Dr. Meetu Mahendra. Together we have two beautiful kids. Shiv is 9 years old and Somya, our youngest, is 6 years old. 

I love to stay active and have a need for speed. Over the years I have raced NASCARS, Laborghinis, and Ferraris. For a time I also enjoyed motorcycling until a minor accident in 2009 made me decide to take a leave of absence from the sport. 

My hobbies include hiking, biking, and gardening. I completed the CN Tower Edgewalk in 2013 and hope to someday muster enough courage to parajump!
