|“Yonge Eglinton is a patient-centred practice. Those who come here need to know that they come first and they are the ones that dictate treatment. If it is the ideal solution for you, then it is the best solution.”
One of Dr. Randy Fisher’s greatest delights since joining Yonge Eglinton Dental has been the connection it’s given him to people. “I really enjoy the interaction with individuals while I care for their dental health,” he says. “As a dentist, I actually get to have a small part in people’s lives, hear about their families, and follow what they are up to in between visits.”
Before pursing a career in dentistry, Dr. Fisher worked as an industrial engineer and a global business analyst. After graduating from dental school, he joined the Yonge Eglinton practice, founded by his father over 40 years ago.
“As a dentist, I’m able to apply the best technology and techniques,” he explains, noting the similarities between the two professions. “Both focus on excellence, and the importance of setting and achieving goals. But dentistry allows me to work directly with people — that is why I chose it.”
Although he practices all aspects of dentistry, much of Dr. Fisher’s work emphasizes prosthodontics and restorative dentistry, reporting and treatment of trauma and joint disorders in the jaw. Whether it is a routine checkup or specialized treatment, he views his work as solving “dental problems” so that patients can enjoy optimal oral health.
Dr. Fisher also believes an important part of his role is helping people feel more comfortable about their visit to his office. “It’s very normal to have some anxiety about going to the dentist,” he admits. “Even I have it when I’m the patient.”
When not at work, Dr. Fisher finds time for his love of music, fitness and family. A former marathon runner, the busy father of two continues to enjoy running even if it means just a few minutes around the block to exercise and enjoy some time by himself.
Dr. Randy Fisher a graduate of the Schulich School of Dentistry, University of Western Ontario. He also has a Bachelor of Applied Science & Engineering in Industrial Engineering from the University of Toronto. Currently he is the president of the Canadian Association of Dental Consultants.
