Registered Dental Assistants - SouthWest Dental

About Us:

SouthWest Dental is in a heritage home in downtown Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.  This 1860s home was fully restored/renovated in 2004 to become an 8 operatory dental clinic.  Every effort was made to maintain and honour the unique characteristics of the home, while creating a modern dental clinic.  The atmosphere of this unique setting provides our patients with a relaxing environment that many claim makes them feel “like I’m not at the dentist!”

Our clinic offers general dentistry in addition to several unique services including oral surgery, periodontics, sedation dentistry, root canal treatment and pediatric dentistry. We are committed to staying at the cutting edge of dental technology to provide the best quality care to our patients in the most effective way.
