Our Doctors

Dr. Ian Akiyama

“World Class Dentistry at Yonge and Eglinton”

I am an established dentist who believes that my patients deserve only the best. The delivery and quality of my work is second to none. Patients are fully aware of the before, during and after treatment of each procedure by the judicial use of an intra-oral camera. There is no mystery to my dentistry. The patient is always totally informed.

I believe that there is an art form to dentistry. My work is not only functional but mimics the original tooth. My patients are very proud of the fillings and crowns that I place. Dental anesthesia (“the needle”) is administered with great care and in most cases there is very little (if any) discomfort during the injection. There is no “up selling” of dentistry. Cosmetic procedures are available but are never forced upon the patient.

Our office is very professional. We appreciate that your time is important so we are very punctual. Our Dental Hygienists are gentle, thorough, and very skilled.

If you want a positive dental experience you will appreciate our office.

Dr. Zaboroski has a wonderful husband (Sean) and three great children (a 4-year old boy (Harrison) and new born boy/girl twins (Rhett/Millicent)). Needless to say, they have a happy, busy home!

“I understand that dental appointments can be stressful for many patients. I must confess that while growing up, one of my great fears was going to the dentist. In fact, one of the reasons I pursued dentistry as a career was to overcome my own fears. You can be assured that I strive to make your dental appointment an enjoyable experience.

As a dental professional, my goal is to walk with my patients along a lifetime path of optimal health and wellness. I treat all of my patients with the same care and concern as I would a cherished family member and I always seek to provide excellent care in a comfortable environment.”

Dr. Zaboroski enjoys practicing all aspects of dentistry, on an individually-specific basis, including fillings, crown & bridge work, implant crown placement and root canal treatment; all with the highest quality professional care.
