Eastgate Dental Centre – We'll make a smile part of your style!

Hello! I am Dr. Ron Tonogai, the owner of the Eastgate Dental Centre. As a dentist in Hamilton for over 35 years, I have had time to discover the needs and expectations of today's dental patient.

Dr. Ron Tonogai

First, our mission statement is simple: to provide quality dental care in our modern, open concept facility, listen to your needs and treat you with utmost respect and dignity and above all else, strive to provide to you the services that we would expect to find at a dentist in Hamilton and the surrounding area.

Our team consists of great general dentists, seasoned dental providers from different fields of dentistry, and wonderful hygienists, as well as a fantastic support staff of dental assistants, nurses and receptionists. In addition, for those of you that have a fear of dental treatment, we have dentists specially trained to provide you with IV sedation or gas sedation for your comfort. Our comprehensive dental team has the know-how to meet all of your dental needs.

Through the Dentist Replacement Service that Eastgate Dental Centre has run for over 20 years, other dental offices are able to refer their patients to us for dental emergencies or if they are out of town. Get in contact with us today to see if your dentist is one of our participating offices.

Dr. Ron Tonogai

At Eastgate Dental Centre, our location in the Eastgate Square Mall, in Hamilton, provides you the convenience of ample free parking and, for those multi-taskers, a little shopping after your dental visit. Finally, we are here for you seven days a week with hours extending into the evenings and weekends. Please give us a call and we'll make a smile part of your style!

Introducing the newest member of our team – Dr. James Tonogai. Call to book your appointment!
