Dr. Bahar Madani completed her Honours Bachelor of Science in Biology at York University, with a semester abroad studying biotechnology at Dublin City University in Ireland. She obtained her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from McGill University.
Born in Iran and raised in Toronto, she is happy to return from Montreal to a dental career in North York where she grew up. She is fluent in English, Farsi, and French, and working on Spanish and Dutch.
Her dental philosophy is centred around quality care that relies on patient education, open communication, and empathy. She used these values to provide excellent care for underprivileged patients in Montreal through McGill’s various dental outreach missions. She enjoys working with all patients, especially kids, and uses her gentle personality to help ease dental anxiety.
Dr. Shem-Tov was a patient at North York Dental since he was a young boy and was inspired by his childhood dentist, Dr. Tom McKean (past President of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario), to pursue a career in dentistry.
As an undergraduate, Dr. Shem-Tov studied neuroscience at the University of Toronto. In 1988, he entered the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario and received his DDS. He then returned home to North York and became the dentist at his boyhood practice.
Dr. Shem-Tov is currently a clinical instructor at the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Toronto. He has volunteered his dental skills in his travels to Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Central America.
North York Dental has been providing dental services for nearly 30 years. As a former patient, Dr. Shem-Tov knows that many people are looking for a dental professional who can stop their pain, help them maintain their dental health, and advise them when they want to improve their smile. That’s why he’s selected the following professionals to work with him.
Dr. Harakati obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Dentistry (B.D.s.) from Riyadh Colleges of Dentistry and Pharmacy, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Dr. Harakati was born in Vancouver, BC and always had her mindset to come back to Canada to pursue her dental career. After completing all the requirements, she was awarded a general dentist license by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario in January 2018. Due to her upbringing, Dr. Harakati is fluent in both Arabic and English.
Dr. Harakati has participated in multiple volunteering opportunities nationally and internationally, some included awareness campaigns to promote good oral and dental health and some were involved in children’s right to play by using sports to aid in empowering kids and youth all around the world to overcome any obstacles. Dr. Harakati believes strongly in implementing oral health education in dental visits.
Dr. Harakati’s view is that dentistry is a partnership between herself and her patients where honest and open communication is key to success and to a pleasant patient experience in the dental office.
