Meet Our Team
Dr. Lion Berzin
Dr. Berzin has more than 25 years of experience in dentistry and has received multiple awards for his work. He graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science degree from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, before practicing dentistry in London, England. In 1998, he moved to Toronto to practice here.
Dr. Berzin’s interest in the art and science of dentistry is fueled by his passion for providing the best dental care possible for his patients.
