Vera Volpe - Manager

I have been a part of the team at Dentistry on Ellesmere since 1986 and strive to ensure your dental visit is always an enjoyable one. At your initial visit I will assist you in filling out your chart, understanding your dental coverage and answer any questions you may have about our dental practice. After your initial exam I will go over your recommended treatment, schedule your appointments, explain your financial options and set up any payment arrangements to meet your needs.

On a personal note I enjoy Ballroom and Latin dancing and spending time with family and friends.

What is your favourite thing about managing a dental clinic in Scarborough?
I enjoy welcoming and building good relationships with new patients, but also enjoy making our existing patients feel like family at each and every one of their visits as I have been with Dentistry On Ellesmere for over 30 years.

What can a New Patient expect on their first visit?
We warmly welcome New Patients and ask that they arrive 15 minutes earlier to fill out our New Patient information chart, and answer any questions they may have regarding their insurance coverage. We recommend starting with a Complete Oral Exam and X-rays so that we can assess their overall dental health. We will review their dental history, as well as any concerns they may have regarding their oral health. After the assessment is complete, our team will then go over all the recommendations with the patient.
