Meet the Doctor
Eli Shem-Tov, DDS
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.
Dr. Shem-Tov lives in the Annex and is a passionate cyclist, avid skier and horrible golfer. He is more than happy to swap recipes and stories about his two children, Levi and Zoe.
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. Sina Moshiri
Dr. Moshiri is excited to join Dr. Shem-Tov’s Team on weekends so that patients have greater access to care. He enjoys performing all aspects of family dentistry and works hard to connect with patients to facilitate sustainable and preventative care. Dr. Moshiri graduated with honours in 2018 from the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry and is currently practicing at Mount Sinai Hospital where he is completing a General Practice Residency with complex care patients in hopes of better serving his community in the future. He is committed to dental outreach and volunteerism: two highlights of his career so far have been opportunities to serve in underprivileged communities in Moose Factory, Ontario, and rural Guatemala. Dr. Moshiri was raised in Hamilton, Ontario, where he completed his Honours Bachelor of Science degree at McMaster University with a major in Biochemistry. Dr. Moshiri is fluent in English and Farsi, and understands that effective communication and compassion are fundamental aspects of a dentist’s job. During his free time, Dr. Moshiri enjoys working out, reading, trying new recipes, and is an avid sports fan (especially the NBA!).
Dr. Bahar Madani - B. Sc., DMD
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. Outside of the office, she enjoys fitness, farmers' markets, and watching documentaries with her two cats.
