Dr. Arnold Fleming

 Dr. Arnold Fleming  DDS, MSC

Dr. Fleming completed his M.Sc. in Periodontics at the University of Toronto in 1985, where his research was on regeneration of bone in periodontal defects, and in the development of a “made in Canada” dental implant system. In addition to having a private practice in downtown Toronto, he taught at the Faculty of Dentistry as clinical instructor for over 10 years, and also gave lectures to general dentists on implant dentistry. In 1997 he and his wife, Mary Ann, brought their young family of 3 children, Lindsay, Jack and Annabel, to Kitchener-Waterloo, where he has had a private periodontal practice ever since.

Arnold has extensive experience in periodontics and implant dentistry, and over his 35-years in dentistry has gained expertise on various implant systems, including Core-Vent, NobelBiocare, Zimmer-Biomet 3i; Ankylos; Biohorizons; and Straumann. There continue to be new advances in the speciality, and Arnold enjoys taking continuing education courses on a regular basis, allowing him to offer his patients the latest techniques in gingival grafting, periodontal bone regeneration, and bone augmentation procedures prior to implant placement. He was one of the first practitioners in Ontario to be licensed as a LANAP clinician (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure), the only FDA-approved protocol to provide periodontal regeneration using laser technology.

Dr. Fleming has also been an active volunteer in his dental community, serving on the Executive of the Central Toronto Dental Society when he was practicing there, and also on the executive of the Waterloo-Wellington Dental Society, becoming President of WWDS in 2001. Presently he continues his volunteer activities as a very active Member of the Board of Directors of the Ontario Dental Association.

Arnold enjoys skiing, Hobie-cat sailing, tennis, pretending to be a golfer, and playing his piano. He most enjoys being with his family, and coming to work every day to look after his patients!! He looks forward to meeting you and working with you to achieve periodontal health, or to replace missing teeth and restore functional integrity with dental implants.
