Meet Our Team

A team that helps you go an extra SMILE

Dr. Ronald Nazon, Dental Surgeon

Dr. Nazon was born in Haiti and moved to Canada as a child. He graduated from McGill University with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1987. He left his beloved Montréal, and after 5 years of associateship, he opened his first office at College and Augusta. Later on, in 1995, he opened the present office on Augusta Avenue under the name United Smiles of Kensington. The reason why he chose "united" was the belief that Toronto - being a multicultural city - is actually reflected in his very own office.

So, the dental office became multicultural and multilingual. In addition to that, his belief was always that as a dentist, it is necessary to help people in need, which led him to accept patients on social services, as well as do pro-bono work for battered women. Later on, as part of his philosophy, he and his team started dental missions to Haiti, where the services provided were performing dental hygiene, restorative, extractions as well as handing out medical supplies; clothing, toys, toothbrushes, and dental floss.

Dr. Nazon also mentored numerous students that later became dentists after shadowing him. He is fluent in 4 languages; English, French, Creole, and Spanish and has working proficiency in Portuguese. Aside from dentistry, Dr. Nazon enjoys traveling and considers Mexico to be his second home after Kensington Market. When hiring his team of doctors and staff, he has made sure that everyone in the practice always feels accepted and right at home.

"We run this place as a family, not as a corporation." and he likes to keep it that way.

Dr. Ziad El Achhab, Dental Surgeon

Known for his patient character, Dr. Ziad focuses on providing comfort and detailed explanation to all of his patients. He is an active member of the RCDSO and ODA since 2012. Dr. Ziad grew up in Beirut, Lebanon, a vibrant city on the Mediterranean shores. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at St. Joseph’s University in 2003.

After practicing dentistry in Beirut for 6 years, Dr. Ziad decided to move to Kuwait City in 2008 and has enjoyed serving the diverse population of the gulf for over 8 years. His experience there has progressed over a variety of different expertise such as cosmetics, prosthodontics and endodontics. Dr. Ziad feels particularly blessed to be working with Smiles of Kensington Dental since 2019 as the practice shares his philosophy in dealing with patients’ needs.

During his free time, Dr. Ziad enjoys traveling to beach destinations, eating authentic cuisine, photography, and exploring Canada’s different National Parks.

Dr. Nikhil Darji, Dental Implants And Major Surgery

Dr. Nik graduated from the National Dental Examination Board in December 2017 and has expertise in root canals and complicated extractions such as wisdom teeth removal and implants.

Dr. Nik helps every one of his patients maintain optimal oral health rather than just filling holes in teeth. His goal is to always diagnose the problem instead of only treating the symptoms. Dr. Nik takes the time to listen to his patients to fully understand their dental concerns so that he can provide an accurate diagnosis and the correct treatment. His patients say that he consistently delivers painless dental treatments as well as quick and efficient service. He is incredibly easy-going, making every patient feel comfortable in his chair. Dr. Nik is fluent in English, Hindi, and Gujarati.

In his free time, Dr. Nik closely follows sports. He also likes to explore dentistry and further his knowledge and skills.
