Smiles of Hope
A Canadian dental team has put a smile on kids’ faces thanks to a humanitarian mission to Jalapa, Guatemala. In the developing world, dental care is often rare or inaccessible. Guatemala is one of those countries where many have little access to dental care.

What Our Patients Say About Us...
Flavio is a multi black belt martial arts instructor and a much sought after sports psychologist. He is currently working with Formula race car drivers, NBA and Olympic athletes, to help them break through to their highest performance level.
There is a need in people says Dr. Pekar to let the wellness on the inside show through to the outside. After a successful career competing in martial arts Flavio’s beamy youthful smile needed some help.
With Dr. Pekar’s smile design team, an image was created that allowed a change in the perception of Flavio’s smile by the people around him.
As Flavio coaches, how does one let go of limiting beliefs and create a new winning strategy?
It could be as simple as Dr. Pekar’s Smile Team changing lives one fabulous smile at a time.
Amr used to describe himself as being shy and reserved in public.
This changed when he consulted with Dr. Pekar and got a new lease on his smile. Like many children Amr lost a baby tooth, but an adult replacement didn’t grow in to fill his smile. This left a gap, even after braces. Hiding his disappointment, Amr’s smile is missing from the family pictures. Amr heard about a crown being supported by a dental implant. This titanium anchor is integrated in the bone to act as a root substitute. It would look and feel like the other teeth.
The procedure took about an hour and Amr left with an intact trial smile.
At ten weeks Amr’s bone attachment to the implant was sufficiently strong to proceed. The natural shade of his other teeth was matched and the new tooth put in place. The once shy boy now has an opportunity to beam his new smile far and wide.
Advancements in technology allow people to have quality of life and health that were only emerging two decades ago.
Dr.Pekar notes it was a pleasure to provide minimal dentistry which means leaving as much of a natural smile intact as possible.
Being in the public eye is something Bev has been comfortably doing for many years. She loves to laugh and enjoy the interaction with all aspects of life. But she didn’t feel her smile was pleasing to look at.
She consulted with Dr. Pekar and his ‘designers’. A trial smile was created using bonding materials and refined until it became Bev’s own smile. Finally both Dr. Pekar and Bev were confident that not only would Bev have an attractive smile, but she would also have a stable bite with a long term ability to chew whatever foods she wishes.
It is always a joy for Dr. Pekar and his team to see someone regain their sense of assuredness and confidence when their treatment is completed. The joy of living every day beams through Bev in a radiant and all embracing smile.
