Meet Dr. Zhu

Philosophy

“Our patients will always be treated with first-class comfort and care.”

Dr. Zhu is dedicated to providing his patients with exceptional dental care in a caring, supportive and welcoming environment.  His focus is to provide gentle, compassionate treatment with an emphasis on dignity and integrity.  In that respect, you will see that he listens attentively to his patients, and will work together with you to improve and maintain your oral health.  He combines skill and experience with a kind, caring attitude and a gentle touch.  It is his anticipation that when you leave the dental clinic, you will be satisfied knowing you have been treated with the most modern techniques in dentistry combined with unsurpassed sincerity and professionalism.  Establishing lasting relationships with our patients is the foundation upon which this dental practice is built.

Background

Dr. Zhu completed a Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Toronto and subsequently moved back to his hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba where he received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Dentistry, and his Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree from the University of Manitoba.  At both universities he was on the Dean’s Honor List, recognizing him as one of the top students in his class.  In addition to numerous awards, Dr. Zhu received the distinguished University Gold Medal for graduating with the highest standing in Dentistry.

Dr. Zhu began his career in private practice in Winnipeg.  In addition to private practice, he was also a part-time clinical instructor at the Faculty of Dentistry, where he has taught first, second, and third year dental students in the disciplines of Crown and Bridge, Root Canal therapy, and Dental Anatomy and Occlusion.

August 15th, 2010 holds special meaning for Dr. Zhu and his wonderful wife Evelyn, as they were happily married in Winnipeg, joined in celebration by family and friends.  Prior to moving to Toronto, they enjoyed a fabulous honeymoon in Europe, but they miss Europe so much that they can’t wait to go back again!   “Nothing is more important to me than family, and I look forward to building my family with my amazing wife, who is my soul mate, my life partner, and truly my best friend.”
