Dr. Elliott A. Schwartz and his staff are committed to the total oral health care of his patients and strive to provide the highest quality in services to your child.
A parent takes their child to a paediatrician for primary health care because of their specialized education and greater clinical experience with children; the same reasoning holds true for going to a Paediatric Dentist such as Dr. Elliott A. Schwartz.

Dr. Elliott A. Schwartz has been happily married since third year of dental school and has 3 grown up children and 4 grandchildren.

Dr. Enkeleda Thaci is an internationally trained General Practioner, who came to Canada in 2008, with her goal to continue her career as a dentist in her new country. She worked with Dr. Elliott A. Schwartz as his dental assistant and quickly completed her Canadian Equivalency Process Exams and National Board Exams in 2012.
In her words:
It has been a real joy and privilege to practice in a pediatric dental office. I am a general practioner treating both children and adults. Treating children on a daily basis has challenged and at the same time blessed me with the most significant and rewarding responsibility; that of shaping a person's relationship with maintaining their oral health and their dental care from a very young age for the rest of their lives.
I feel very pleased when parents tell me that their children have been looking forward to come to their dental appointments. Working with Dr. Elliott A. Schwartz, as his chair side dental assistant, and now as his colleague has been a professionally enriching experience.
When I am not in the office I enjoy reading and whenever I get the chance I take time to travel.
