Stephen Ing, BSc, DDS, MSc (Anesthesia)

Dr. Stephen Ing graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and postgraduate diploma in Dental Anesthesia, both from the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Toronto. The postgraduate program in Dental Anesthesia at the University of Toronto is unique in that it is the only one of its kind in Canada that provides focused training in sedation and general anesthesia for dental treatment. In fact, Dr. Ing is one of only a small group of dentists in Canada who have received training in both dentistry and anaesthesiology. He is a Diplomate of the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology and is also registered with the Royal College of Dental Surgeons as a certified specialist in Dental Anesthesia. As well, Dr. Ing currently lectures on the techniques and principles of sedation in dental practice.

Dr. Ing's ultimate goal is to ensure your dental treatment is carried out in a comfortable, stress-free, and safe manner. If you are one of the many patients who experience pain or anxiety during dental procedures, the use of sedation may be the solution. It is Dr. Ing's belief that positive dental experiences will lead to better oral health and ultimately contribute to overall well-being.
