To our valued Patients and Friends

It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement from my dental practice. As difficult as this decision has been, I feel good about the fact that I will be able to spend more time with family and most importantly my children.

I have had the privilege of providing dental care for you over the past 17 years. I have enjoyed my job immensely and have always found great pride and joy in the relationship to my patients. Looking back, I can say that and it has made the years pass quickly.

I would like to personally thank you for the trust and confidence you have extended to my staff and myself over the years we have come to know you both as patients and friends. It has been an honor to be your dentist.

To ensure that my patients continue to receive the best possible care I have carefully evaluated the number of candidates that were interested in buying the practice. Part of making this decision was to transition the dental care of my patients to another dentist who would be able to provide the quality treatment you have come to expect.

I have selected Dr. Milene Riccardi who I believe is a caring and talented dentist who possesses the highest qualifications and is extremely well skilled in all phases of restorative and cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Milene Riccardi has acquired my dental practice as of September 1, 2017. After obtaining her B.Sc (with distinction), Dr. Riccardi continued her studies at the University of Toronto obtaining her DDS in 1988. Dr. Riccardi shared her knowledge and love of dentistry with dental students for over fifteen years at the University of Toronto. She completed a year of post graduate studies, which involved working in under serviced dental clinics before settling into private practice.

Dr. Riccardi's passion for her profession is evident in her clinical approach. She prides herself on educating her patients and having them engaged in their dental well-being. She is passionate about continuing education and as a result, her patients benefit from the most current technologies. Dr. Riccardi is a member of various dental study clubs. In her spare time she likes to travel with her husband and two university aged children.

I trust you will extend to Dr. Riccardi the same confidence and loyalty that you have extended to me over the past years. I certainly have enjoyed the relationships that I have developed within the dental practice, and wish you and your families well.


Dr. Gitte Frederiksen, D.D.S.
