Pain Control

If you thought discomfort and dentistry went hand in hand, we would like to change that for you. We’ve designed our practice specifically to give us every advantage in providing excellent patient care. We think you’ll find our hi-tech office to be warm and inviting. Everything has been purposely designed to make you comfortable. Plus, you’ll notice right away that we don’t just sit you down in the chair and start working on your teeth – we take all the time required to assess your oral health status, listen to your concerns, and help you think through your objectives. So whether you’re considering a cosmetic treatment, or you are in to discuss general oral health, we will take the time to listen and offer you the best treatment in a relaxed environment.Pain free middle age couple smiling.

If our office and outstanding team isn’t enough, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to put you at ease. It provides a safe, effective way to alleviate dental anxiety.

In some cases our young patients who require extensive work, or our very nervous adult patients, need something more than freezing and nitrous gas. In these situations, we can discuss options for general anaesthetic provided through our partners at the Ottawa Surgi Centre. We also find that our dental laser treatment can be quite effective on some procedures, as we are often able to do treatment without the need for freezing.

So, rest assured we know that not everyone enjoys their trip to the dental office, so we’ll do all we can to make you comfortable!

  • Metropolitan Dental—Now Open

    To all of our valued patients of Metropolitan Dental:

    Hello everyone! This is coming to all of you with good news! We have finally received official approval to head back to work. We have been closed for almost three months. Needless to say we are all quite excited to head back to Metropolitan Dental and to once again see all of you for your dental needs.

    COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us, including the shut down of dentistry across the province. We understand that many of you have been forced to wait for your dental care and we deeply appreciate your understanding and patience while we were closed. Your health and well being continue to be our highest priority as we carefully prepare and update our practice procedures. Please be assured that we will be taking care of you, just as we will be taking care of our families and ourselves.

    We know that our capacity of getting back to work will not be 100% initially, but we will be working hard to see all of you. We have opened our doors as of June 8th. We ask, unless you are experiencing an emergency, please wait for us to call you, instead of you calling the office. This will help to make our job of scheduling and re-scheduling patients easier. If you would like to email us to schedule or update an appointment click here.

    There are some new protocols that have been put in place by the Minister of Health for your next dental appointment, so we will be emailing these out to you prior to your appointment. These new screening processes are important for everyone to follow, we thank you for your co-operation.

    Once again, we thank you for your trust and patronage over the decades. Please remember as businesses continue to re-open, the DENTAL office is one of the cleanest and most sterile places that you will encounter. We have been working hard to ensure that commitment to you.

    We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces again.


    Dr. Barton Walters, and Dr. Andrew Kaplan

    And the entire team at Metropolitan Dental
