Dr. Azita Zerehgar

Dr. Azita Zerehgar


I am Dr. Azita Zerehgar. My role at Eastgate Dental Centre is to treat the children of the practice. I am a certified pediatric dentist from Iran and a licensed dentist in Canada, where I have practiced, taught and conducted research in the field of pediatric dentistry for 20 years. Registered as a general dentist in Ontario, I limit my practice solely to treating children. Caring for children has always been an important part of my life, and I find nothing more precious than the trust and appreciation from a young patient. When I am not in the office, my interests and other activities include swimming, painting, music and the study of different cultures. I enthusiastically look forward to each day as a moment that allows me to reflect and honour our profession and to treat our younger patients.
