Meet Dr. Danis, Your Dentist in Oshawa

Mehmet Danis, DDS

Oshawa Dentist for Life

Not a day goes by that I don’t learn something from our patients and share a laugh with them. As a dentist, I have been blessed with a career that allows me to meet and treat so many wonderful people while serving our community. Having the good fortune of being able to provide exceptional dental care to each and every person who walks into our clinic is the most satisfying part of my work. No matter how daunting their dental problems may be, I know that my amazing staff and I will find a solution and a reason to make them smile.


Throughout the years, we have been able to build trusting relationships with all our patients by providing lifelong smiles one stress-free dentist appointment at a time. I believe that my job is to help patients achieve the best possible dental health through treatment that is without pain or stress. In fact, some of our most joyous appointments have been with anxious patients during a procedure that they themselves did not believe could be so easy to receive. The pleasant surprise in their smiles always gives our entire staff a great deal of satisfaction.


Dental Excellence

As a retired Dental Officer of the Department of National Defense, I know that it is essential to stay on the cutting edge of the evolving dental technology and treatment options. Our clinic is state of the art, equipped with digital lower-dose X-rays, intraoral cameras for patient education, electronic patient charting systems, and so much more.


We also offer the most innovative dental services such as Invisalign® (invisible) braces, dentistry while sedated, and the newest tooth-whitening systems such as Opalescence®.


Life never stands still and we embrace this by constantly updating our knowledge, skills and technology.


In the Durham Community


I have been an activist in the motivation of my community for many years.


My work with the Rotarians and the United Way of Kingston, Toronto and Durham Region has provided me with a lifetime of fulfillment. Not a year goes by that I am not embarking on another adventure to make a difference in the world around me.


My foundation `Please Be Unreasonable` is a platform for positive change and the belief in the limitless potential of our dreams. My bursary (Dr. Danis `Be Unreasonable` Award) is the fruit of many years of hope and labour.


As a clinic we are proud to supply hundreds of our local athletes with sports guards as they make us proud in their athletic endeavours. Our numerous donations such as the Dr. Danis Oshawa Dental House Scholarship for the UOIT are a symbol of our appreciation to the thousands of families we have treated in our practice and our community.


Our entire staff family is actively involved in community activities ranging from the Oshawa Rotarians to numerous church groups in the Durham Region. Personally, I have competed in several endurance races across the world as I raised awareness and funds for charities such as Pink Ribbon Campaign for the cure and the United Way of the GTA.



I received my Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and my Masters of Science from the University of Toronto, where I was named on the honour roll.


My research publications included the International Journal of Physiology.


I successfully completed my Dental Surgery Degree at the University of Western Ontario in 2005.


I was accepted as Dental Officer in our Armed Forces where I was promptly promoted to Captain and where I had the great fortune to receive numerous awards and a medal of recognition.


Continuing Education for Life

I believe that my patients deserve to benefit from the leading technology and innovation. So I expect to work with only the latest, only the best tools and dental systems. We have a very simple standard: We only use the best. And I am no exception. An exceptional dentist must constantly improve and learn. A life of learning to provide lifelong smiles to my patients is my motto.


I successfully completed the Advanced Dental Officer Course as well as the Canadian Forces Oral Surgery Course from the Royal Military College.


I regularly attend courses on the most innovative systems and services such as Invisalign.


Some of my most current extended education includes training in:


  • Non-traumatic tooth removal
  • Acute pain management
  • Nitrous (gas) sedation, oral (pill) sedation
  • Invisalign (invisible braces) orthodontics
  • Same-day, mini-implant delivery
  • Advanced root canal treatment (rotary endodontics)


At Home

I grew up all over the GTA and I decided to settle in Oshawa in order to be with my loving family. My wife, Sara, is an amazing clinical Dietitian.


She provides hope and life tools to thousands of dialysis patients who suffer from kidney disease. Her work in countless GTA hospitals and her ongoing research in the field of exercise and its effects on these patients has been one of my inspirations in my own profession.


When I am not serving my patients or spending time with family, I'm training for one of my adventure races around the many incredible deserts of our earth. I have been lucky enough to win some of the toughest foot races on earth. And I have been blessed with the opportunity to speak to thousands of audience members across Canada as an inspirational speaker. Being able to spark inspiration in people has been the greatest reward of my success as an endurance athlete.
