Recently, guidelines have changed regarding antibiotic prophylaxis after having joint replacements. They may not be required in many cases. If you are planning to have, or have had a recent  joint replacement(two years or less) , please consult with your surgeon. We  have a form available which you are welcome to take to your surgeons office, or we would be happy to forward it on your behalf.


Dentistry On West is a proud sponsor of the Orillia Youth Basketball Association, the Orillia Curling Club, and the Orillia Minor Hockey Association (Mighty Molars).


In December 2018 we all enjoyed a wonderful day in Toronto to celebrate the holiday season. Dr. Chu treated us all to a matinee at the Royal Alexander, followed by a fabulous dinner.

We are always grateful to have the opportunity to attend the Ontario Dental Association Spring Meeting. The  Dental Association Spring Meeting is held each year. It is a great event for our staff  to attend continuing education courses and to check out the latest advances in our field. Some of our staff will also be attending the Hygiene Convention this year.


We are  happy to offer Mini-Implants. If you have been having trouble with the fit and stability of your dentures, these may change your life. Please ask us about them at your next visit.
