Meet Dr. Shana Friedman

Dr. Shana Friedman enjoys caring for kids of all ages and we’re certain that, just like our patients, you and your family will respond well to her gentle personality.

  • Dr. Shana graduated from UofT Dental School in 1992. Dentistry is a family affair – her brother and sister chose professions in the dental field too!
  • In practice for over 26 years, Dr. Friedman sees patients of all ages and loves the close relationships that come from treating families living in her own neighbourhood.
  • A busy mother of 3 kids (twin boys in university & a daughter attending highschool), she lives right here in our community.

For the past 8 years, Jen has been providing compassionate friendly care tailored specifically to each of her patients. The biggest reward she receives – and it happens every day – is making a difference by helping her patients achieve a beautiful healthy smile, because this also means her patients receive a boost to their overall health, their appearance, self-confidence, and quality of life.

Eden Medina

Dental Administrator

Eden Medina

Helping patients. That’s what is first and foremost on Eden’s mind. And the smile on a patient’s face at the end of an appointment is the icing on the cake. Almost 6 years ago, Eden chose our practice because of our supportive and caring culture and camaraderie and how these qualities translate into a truly welcoming trusting atmosphere for our family of patients.

Eden grew up in Manila (Philippines) and came to Toronto in 1996 to enhance her studies. She enjoys her spare time with her family, watching movies together, and one day, she hopes to skydive.

When Rena joined our team in 2017, she was seeking a practice that offered the same standard of care that she does, with a focus on patient needs in a warm and friendly environment. We’ve found the perfect fit and couldn’t be happier.

With her focus on your unique smile, Rena will work with you to create the best dental protocol for your personal needs. Rena loves meeting new people and getting to know her family of patients while she provides the oral health education that supports a healthy mouth and body.

Away from the practice Rena enjoys exercising, spending time with her two sons, Jared and Shayne, and caring for her furbaby, Oreo. In her spare time, when she finds it, Rena can be found attending sporting events, plays, and concerts.
