Georgian Dental® Orillia Location has Moved!
A dental office is more than just a waiting room with soft music playing, a reception area and examination rooms featuring expensive chairs. It should be a place that meets, if not exceeds, standards outlined by the governing bodies. It should be a place that is warm and welcoming to all. And it should be a place that is accessible to everyone who requires dental care.
After close to 50 years in the same clinic, we’re proud to announce that Georgian Dental® Orillia has moved to a new location! We’re getting settled into our new clinic located at 20 Diana Drive, which you’ll find between the Costco and Starbucks, just off University Ave in Orillia, Ontario.
While this an exciting development for Georgian Dental® and its staff, this move was made with our patients in mind and with the goal of creating an even more positive experience.
Let’s begin by introducing you to what this new location means for our patients. We’ll then take you through the features and amenities and how these will further our approach and the services we offer.
Why Location Matters?
It’s a cliché but the adage “location, location, location” matters as much to a dental practice as it does other types of businesses. This is because the right location can connect us to our patients, make our services more accessible to them and the community, create a more welcoming environment and determine how many people we can help on any given day.
We knew for our practice to best serve our patient base, it had to be a space that could feature more dentist chairs, a larger reception area and have free parking. This would ensure that patients can park without worry, wait less time to see the dentist and receive the care they need.
Our new location was chosen in part because it is more central to where most of our patient’s live. This should help them seek the oral care they need and prevent them from having to suffer with pain in their mouth longer than needed.
New Orillia Clinic Location Features
Our new location features several benefits and that should greatly improve the patient experience.
As mentioned, our focus is on accessibility and ease. The experience begins as a patient pulls into the parking lot. There is ample parking, all of which is free, so people don’t have to make a long trek from their car to the clinic. Additionally, there is a Starbucks in close walking distance and a Costco right behind the clinic in the hope that your dental appointment won’t interfere with your day.
Inside, we have built all the facilities on a single floor to allow less-abled patients complete and easy access to our state-of-the-art clinic. Our new clinic features near infrared imaging for the early detection of cavities and we have fully eliminated the use of dental impression materials. We will have the ability to scan the mouths of our patients to keep a thorough record of their oral health via a 3D virtual model. Best of all, this new location is home to an experienced group of doctors that should negate the nuisance associated with referrals.
Dr. Tan and his team of professionals listened to the needs of patients. Many of these patients expressed a desire for a new larger, state-of-the-art clinic. The result will be reduced wait times, greater convenience and our evening and weekend hours will help patients of all ages receive the care they need when they need it.
We worked closely with Public Health Ontario to make sure our new clinic was designed to meet every stringent standard they have including those related to sterilization. The safety and health of our patients is of the utmost importance and we will continue to adhere to all regulations that govern these matters.

Our team also includes an amazing group of hygienists, administrators and we often consult and work with some of the most reputable specialists in the area.
We treat patients based on the principles of holistic dentistry. While holistic dentistry has been a respected oral care philosophy for a long time, it is still relatively unknown among the general public.
The foundation of this approach is simple: consider a patient’s oral health in the greater blueprint of their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing, and to understand how dentistry impacts these other elements.
Holistic dentistry marries several healing traditions with modern dentistry. It considers a patient’s compatibility with every material that conceivably would be used during their treatment. Our treatments are customized to ensure no aspect will cause a negative reaction in a patient.
Additionally, we put great thought and care into considering and discussing nutrition, diet and post-treatment or post-operative plans for patients to prevent new or further oral health issues.
We do not use harmful toxins like mercury in the treatment of our patients as it poses both environmental and health risks. We follow the protocols provided by the international Association of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and use cutting-edge equipment so that our patients and staff are not exposed to mercury.
