Dr. Frances Skinazi
Dr. Skinazi worked in Brantford, Stoney Creek and Markham before joining our Newmarket family in 2006. Dr. Skinazi is very kind and gentle and happy that our patients come out saying that they can’t believe they enjoyed their fillings or root canals. They feel that they have been taken care of, listened to, and treated as people not cases. Dr. Skinazi enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and particularly likes making her patients feel that they like their smile better and are more confident to smile. Aside from dentistry, Dr. Skinazi loves to bake and share her baking with her dental family. She, as well as her children, like to throw on their running shoes and run a 10K race here and there. She is a sucker for board games, tile games, and cards. Most of all, Dr. Skinazi loves to laugh and smile, and keeps that her priority in her personal and professional life!
