Dr. Noah Turk, Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Noah was born and raised in Toronto where he completed his undergraduate studies at York University, receiving a dual degree in Biology and Geography. Dr. Noah migrated south to complete his dental degree at Nova Southeastern University in Florida. Upon graduating, he was presented with several awards including the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Award. He stayed on in Florida where he completed a two-year residency in pediatric dentistry at Nova and the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, where he served as a chief resident.
During his pediatric education, Dr. Noah received comprehensive training in behavioural guidance techniques, which included completing kids dental treatments under oral conscious sedation and general anesthesia. Dr. Noah spent extensive time working with children on the Autism Spectrum and developed a deep understanding for utilizing Applied Behavioral Analysis in his every patient interaction. His translational research in this field led to a thesis, which identified key characteristics associated with successful dental treatment in children with ASD. Dr. Noah subsequently earned a Master of Science Degree.
Upon graduating, Dr. Noah returned home to the Toronto area to raise his family and bring his interest and skills in treating children back to the city he loves. Since returning, he has worked in different dental clinics throughout Southern Ontario, fine tuning even further his years of dental training.
When not in his Keswick dental clinic, Dr. Noah can be found spending family time with his wife Shira and their 4 children. Their love for the outdoors lends itself to many activities and they can often be found exploring the seasonal wonders of nature.
His understanding as a father extends to his patients and he believes that every child deserves an emotionally and psychologically safe environment for dental care. Dr. Noah takes great joy in watching the transformation of children in his office from nervous toddlers to exceptional healthy, cooperative, and interested dental patients.
Dr. Noah maintains the philosophy that a children’s dental clinic should not be a scary place and so has created an environment that is both professional and relaxed. We look forward to welcoming you to a very safe and enjoyable family dental home. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
