Family Medical and Dental Centre - Care Team

About the Family Medical and Dental Centre team

General Practice Dentist: Dr. Rudha Al-Rohani

General practice dentists provide comprehensive dental care including restorative and cosmetic procedures and specialized treatments involving extractions, crowns, bridges, dentures, and implants. They also work closely with a team of hygienists to provide preventative care.

Periodontist: Dr. Paul Jackson

A periodontist is a dental specialist providing treatment to conditions of the gums and teeth. Gum surgeries performed at St. Joseph’s Family Dental Centre include flaps, crown lengthening and grafts. The periodontist also works with our team of hygienists to provide on-going preventative care to patients.

Oral Surgeon: Dr. Henry Lapointe

The oral surgeon is a dental specialist providing surgical care to patients. Surgical treatment ranges from the extraction of wisdom teeth to dental implants, to jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery). Treatments are either performed in the clinic or the operating room at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Dental residents

Our dental residents are licensed dentists participating in a one year residency program. They offer a full-service practice open to the general public at the Platt's Lane location.

Twice weekly, the residents offer treatment to the residents of Mount Hope Long Term Care and other nursing homes. This care is provided at our Mount Hope clinic location. They also provide emergency after-hours care for trauma and infection for all London hospitals.

Teaching and research

St. Joseph's Family Dental Centre is affiliated with Western University's Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry. Our practitioners are members of the teaching faculty and provide a broad-clinical experience to those training in dentistry.
