- Dr. Faryn Berger, Periodontist
As a board certified periodontist, I specialize in the treatment of gum disease and the placement of dental implants. I received my specialty training and completed a Master of Science at the University of Toronto as part of the Graduate Periodontal Program. Prior to studying periodontology, I received my dental degree from the University of Toronto and completed a General Practice Residency at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts.
During my dental education, I received numerous awards and recognitions, including the Dean’s Gold Medal.

I am currently a fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and a member of the Ontario Dental Association, Ontario Society of Periodontists, and Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity.
Teaching the next generation of dentists the importance of good clinical skills, along with compassion and a focus on individualized patient care is very important to me and I remain involved with the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Dentistry by teaching as a clinical Periodontology instructor. I also serve on staff in the Department of Dentistry at Mount Sinai Hospital.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, and traveling. I look forward to working with your dentist to provide honest, caring, and personalized treatment, using the most up to date periodontal and implant techniques available.

I always knew I would work in health care, and I decided to pursue dental hygiene because I wanted the opportunity to build relationships with my patients. I relate to our patients a lot and putting them at ease comes naturally to me. Being able to chat with patients is meaningful to me. I love hearing about their latest milestones, travel plans, and anything else they want to share with me.
To me, health care is about caring for the whole person. Everyone on this team is not only a fantastic person, but they’re also very competent and skilled in their work. Between our amazing team and incredible patients, we always seem to maintain positive energy here.
Your oral health is a big part of your overall health, and our patients deserve access to the care they need. I love watching patients walk away from their appointments feeling confident, and being a part of this positive moment makes me feel accomplished in my work.
I know a dental hygiene visit isn’t at the top of people’s desired to-do list, but our patients are pretty excited when leaving with clean, healthy teeth.
