Meet Our Etobicoke Dental Team

Dr. M. Shorser, D.D.S

Dr. Shorser, D.D.S

Dr. Shorser enjoys practising family and cosmetic dentistry, evident by his varied roster of patients. For over 20 years, Dr. Shorser has played a critical role in the overall dental health of many patients in Etobicoke and surrounding areas. Over the years Dr. Shorser has consistently updated his knowledge and incorporated new techniques and materials through continuing education workshops, seminars and lectures.


Dentistry by the Lake began in 2006

In 2006, Dr. Shorser felt it was time to update the team's office and location. After many years on the Queensway, Dr. Shorser took the plunge and moved his office to a new practice location which is now known as Dentistry by the Lake. Dr. Shorser’s new location is on the south side of Lake Shore Blvd W and on the east side of Marine Parade Drive. You can’t miss Dentistry by the Lake. The waves on the windows are quickly becoming a landmark of the Waterford Condominium complex just east of Park Lawn Rd.


State-of-the-Art Equipment for Your Optimal Dental Health

In addition to a pleasant and calming décor, Dr. Shorser’s new location has state-of-the-art equipment including, but not limited to, digital radiographs, an intra-oral camera and an extensive ventilation system to provide clinical air quality. With the move to Dentistry by the Lake, Dr. Shorser has added new team members who share his dedication to competency and quality of work for all patients in his care.


Dr. Shorser and His Staff Look Forward to Meeting You

If you’re a current patient of Dr. Shorser’s, we look forward to seeing you again soon. If you’re just checking us out online, please feel free to stop by and meet us in person. We look forward to meeting you and providing the utmost in dental care.


When Dr. Shorser isn’t practising dentistry, you can find him by the lake; exercising or taking in a good novel or non-fiction book. Dr. Shorser is a member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons, The Ontario Dental Association, and the Toronto West Dental Society.
