Our History

The founder and visionary of what is known today as Lakeridge Dental Centre began when Dr. John D. Baker graduated from the facility of dentistry from the University of Toronto in 1975.  He practiced in the Durham and Oshawa areas for more than 30 years, providing high-quality dental care to thousands of families.  Dr. Baker’s dedication to educate and practice the highest standards of oral health care is evident still today with the patients of Lakeridge Dental Centre.  

Sadly in May 2013, Dr. Baker passed away suddenly.  Our condolences are forever with his loving family and friends.  Dr. Baker’s legacy still continues as Dr. Hemjeet Singh Bedi and Dr. Sabrina Bedi continue to provide high-quality oral health care to the Durham Region community.  

The families and patients of Lakeridge Dental Centre have welcomed Dr. Hemjeet Singh Bedi and Dr. Sabrina Bedi with great love and open arms we are forever grateful for this gesture.  We are proud to serve our patients and the community and will continue to provide the highest standards of dental care.  

NEW IN 2022

At Lakeridge Dental Centre, Dr. Scott Phillips owned his own practice where he cared for his patients for over 20 years.  On March 31st, 2022 Dr. Phillips announced his retirement.  After a career of serving the local community for the last 30 years, Dr. Phillips is now spending well-deserved time with his family.  Over the ten years prior to his retirement, Dr. Bedi and Dr. Phillips built a strong both professional and personal relationship with the common goal of providing the best possible treatment to their patients. With his transition into retirement, Dr. Bedi and the team at Lakeridge Dental Centre look forward to maintaining the highest level of care possible to all patients.
