Sabrina's Winning Smile
A Message of Gratitude from Sabrina Mathews
$30,000 New Smile Contest Winner
"I am so blessed to have been chosen for this! This has changed my life already. I have never felt this kind of happiness before….
I can’t stop smiling.
I have had many challenges in life, as have lots of other people. It’s not unique to me, but when you come from being in such a dark place for so long, I can only say that my joy and happiness is from having such a life-changing gift.
The work that Dr. Bengall has done has had more of an impact than he could possibly know. You are all such kind-hearted caring people and I will forever be grateful to all of you.

Choosing The Winning Smile
Rather than choose one lucky person ourselves, the team at Expressions Dental Care asked the community who they thought deserved our $30,000 smile makeover - Kindergarten teacher Sabrina Mathews won by a landslide!
A Community Celebration
We wanted to help Sabrina celebrate, so we held a surprise party to let her know that she had won our $30,000 smile makeover. Thanks to Mayor Dave Barrow and MPP Daisy Wai for coming out to celebrate Sabrina's smile .
Having lost her husband to cancer, then losing many her teeth after her own cancer treatment, Sabrina was in a dark place. The community decided it was time to help this kind and giving woman to smile once again.
After Sabrina's teeth became damaged she lost the confidence to smile. Hiding her smile from her young students and the world. Now Dr. Bengall and his team are proud to help restore Sabrina's smile confidence once again!
Making Over Sabrina's Smile
Sabrina's smile began to fade about six months after her cancer treatment. Fragile teeth, missing teeth and discomfort caused by dentures caused Sabrina to lose confidence in her smile. Our goal was to restore Sabrina's smile and her confidence using a range of services available at our dental clinic.
Cosmetic dental services have been specifically created to enhance the overall appearance of your smile. From tooth whitening to veneers we have the services you need to restore your smile confidence.
Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth and restoring the appearance and function of your smile.
Dental implants are a permanent way to replace one or multiple missing teeth when combined with a custom made dental crown, bridge, or implant-supported denture.
At Expressions Dental Care, we make it our priority to ensure each and every one of our patients are comfortable, relaxed, and calm when undergoing dental treatment.
Services to Make Over a Smile
Dr. Bengall was the primary dentist involved in providing the care and services to make over Sabrina's smile, but any full smile restoration requires the skill and effort of a team of dental professionals.
All of our dentists and every member of our team at Expressions Dental Care has played unique role in restoring Sabrina's smile and caring for the oral health of all of our Richmond Hill patients over the past 30 years.
Dental technology has also played a key role in restoring the smiles of many people across our community. Thank you to Nobel Biocare, Durban Dental Laboratory and Esthetics Dental Lab for their role in making Sabrina's new smile bright and healthy.
