Dr. Ricky Hamami

Dr. Ricky Hamami grew up in Burlington Ontario and graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelors of Biomedical Sciences. He then went on to pursue his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree at the prestigious University of Melbourne in sunny Australia. 

Living in sunny Melbourne Australia still couldn’t convince Dr. Ricky to stay away from Canada as he decided to move back to be close to his family and friends.

He is constantly learning new techniques and methods to provide his patients with comprehensive care. In addition to general dentistry, Dr Ricky has advanced training in clear aligner therapy, sedation dentistry, CEREC (same day crowns) and oral surgery. Dr Ricky was an anxious patient himself so his calm demeanour will put you at ease! When he’s not practicing and learning about dentistry you can find Dr. Ricky hacking up a golf course, rooting on his favourite sports teams or spending time with his family and friends.
