Dental Cleanings

At Yam Dental, our dentists in Newmarket recommend regular visits to our dental hygienists. These visits are your best defense against gum disease and other dental problems. Our hygienists clean your teeth gently and thoroughly to make sure all the plaque and tartar, even in hard to reach areas, are removed. At the end of the cleanings, the hygienists polish all the stains off your teeth, and you can choose if you would like a fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth against cavities.

Dental Examinations

Our office recommends complete oral examination for your initial visit. During this visit, we document the condition of your teeth and your oral tissues. We also check your jaw to detect any problems with your bite. Digital x-rays may be taken after assessing your individual needs. Should you need dental treatments after we complete the examination, we will discuss with you what treatments are needed, and our administration team will advise you of costs.

Children’s Dental Visits

At Yam Dental, we welcome children with open arms. We have been providing dental care for children in Newmarket and area since 1989. We offer free consultations and gentle emergency care for your children.

Orthodontics Treatments for Children and Adults

Whether you are looking for teeth straightening for yourself or your child, you have found the right place. At Yam Dental, Dr. Yam has been providing orthodontic services to our patients in Newmarket, Bradford, Aurora, Holland Landing, Keswick, and area, for over 25 years. Through his commitment to continuing education and striving for perfection, Dr. Yam has helped his patients to achieve beautiful and healthy smiles.

Fixing Cavities

At Yam Dental, we fix cavities with composite bonding material. This material comes in a variety of colour and shades. Our highly skilled and experienced dentists can match the colour of your filling to your natural teeth. No one can detect that you have had a filling done with the cosmetic white filling materials.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays are safe, fast, and accurate. They will help to maximize your dental health by detecting any issues so that we can fix the problems before they get worse.


Our office provides extraction services from baby teeth to impacted wisdom teeth. For patients who need more relaxation during the extraction procedure, we are proud to offer relaxation dentistry.
