Meet The Doctors

Drs. Gary Elman and Ira Marder met and became friends in 1983 in dental school. Over the years, their friendship developed and grew. Upon graduation in 1987, Gary and Ira associated at different dental offices gaining clinical experience while preparing for their own practice. In September of 1988, Gary and Ira began their partnership at the Downsview Plaza in North York. Over the years, their practice grew and in the mid 1990s, they expanded and renovated their office. Gary and Ira have been blessed with loyal and devoted patients, many of whom now bring their own children in as patients to the office.

Gary and Ira take an interest in the community outside of the dental office as both are involved in numerous charitable and volunteer activities. They have been able to sponsor many community and athletic programs over the years. The office is also a participant in the AO-JF&CS Dental Volunteer Program treating patients with limited financial means on a volunteer basis.

Gary always found dentistry interesting and even as a young child he remembers being fascinated in his dentist's office. Gary spends much of his free time involved in various community organizations and travels whenever and wherever he can.
