Welcome to the dental practice of Dr. James Vlahos located in St. Catharines, Ontario.
We provide general, family and cosmetic dental services for patients of all ages in a patient-centred office. This means your comfort and needs are our first priority!
It is vitally important to us that we take the time to listen and care to all patients to provide the best and most appropriate dental care for them.
We offer convenient extended hours from early morning and evening appointments to accommodate your busy schedule.
Our team can help all family members with their dental care. From your 3-year-old child’s first visit to the dentist to your elderly parents in need of comprehensive care, we strive to be accommodating and understanding of everyone’s dental needs.
We strive to ensure that our patients are comfortable at every visit. We take the time to get to know you and your particular dental health needs. It is very important to us that our patients are aware of any oral health issues that may exist in their mouths and how we can help you improve your oral health.
At your first visit you will have a comprehensive examination including x-rays and digital photos and sometimes models of your teeth.
Dr. Vlahos will speak to you at that time about concerns you have for your teeth and your overall goals with your smile and general dental health.
A follow-up visit will be scheduled to review all the information, show you the photos and give you his recommendations
You can also expect from us a full written estimate. Our treatment coordinator will then help you fit it into your daily life in a manner that is suitable for you to reach your overall goals.
Hi, my name is Dr. Jim Vlahos and I have been helping patients get healthy and beautiful smiles for over 25 years. My passion is to assist patients in fulfilling their dental needs and desires. Our team works together to help create awareness to the patient as to what is possible for themselves. It is important to us that every patient understands their dental health and we make every effort to ensure this. I feel that that the relationship with my patients is the most important part of my practice and I need to know what my patients want and expect from me and my team. I am a lifelong student and continually upgrade my knowledge and skills to provide that best care that I can for my patients. I also feel that life must be balanced accordingly and my personal family life is very important to me. My wife of 23 years, Lisa and I are blessed with two children, Hailey and Nicholas.
