Meet The Norwood Family Dentistry Team

Dr. Rene Boljkovac

General Dentist In Norwood


Education

Growing up in Etobicoke, Dr. Rene Boljkovac knew from a young age that he was going to be a dentist. His parents own a dental laboratory and seeing how their work helped improve the lives of others made him want to do the same. After earning his BSc (summa cum laude) in Biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1986, Dr. Boljkovac was accepted into the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. There he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 1990.

Practice Philosophy

Dr. Boljkovac is committed to helping each member of your family find and keep your best oral health. Preventing problems is his first priority, but Dr. Boljkovac understands that even with excellent oral healthcare, you may still develop issues over time. With patience and understanding, Dr. Boljkovac will address these issues so you can maintain a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile that you can use with confidence.

Living and working in our rural community is a great joy for Dr. Boljkovac. He loves building the personal relationships that are a natural part of village life.

Away From Dentistry

When Dr. Boljkovac and his wife Marion discovered the lovely heritage home that is now Norwood Family Dentistry, they fell in love at first sight. Since lovingly restoring the home into a modern dental office while preserving the home’s heritage, Dr. Boljkovac and Marion have quite enjoyed getting to know Norwood and the people who live here, and have worked with Norwood Hospice to raise funds for the restoration of the former J.J. Stewart House.

When he has free time, Dr. Boljkovac enjoys soccer, boating, reading, and travelling.


Dr. Steven Zhao

Dr. Steven Zhao earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Toronto. He has always had a strong passion for providing dedicated patient care that provides personal solutions using evidence-based techniques and technologies.

Practice Philosophy

Encouraging open discussion, Dr. Zhao gives you the time you need to express any concerns you may have about your dental care. Whether you want to know more about your options or are anxious about receiving care, Dr. Zhao will approach your needs with warmth and compassion.

For Nicola, there is no greater feeling than helping someone in their time of need.
