About Us

Hannes Girgis


Dr. Johannes Girgis and his team are strong believers in the importance of continuing education, and are always in touch with the newest techniques and equipment required for state-of-the-art dentistry. We also believe that prevention is the best medicine, and as such, we take the time to educate patients about their dental health. We want you to understand any problems or conditions that arise so you can make educated decisions about your own care. Any time you don’t understand something, please ask for more information. Our goal is to foster a friendly environment where patients feel free to ask questions.

Dr. Johannes Girgis (Hannes for short) has been practicing dentistry for nearly 15 years. He holds a B.Sc. in Honors Cooperative Biochemistry from the University of Waterloo, and graduated from McGill University as a Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1996. He furthered his studies by completing a one-year multidisciplinary residency program at the Montreal Children’s Hospital, where he received additional training in children’s unique dental needs.

Dr. Girgis moved to Ottawa in 1997 with his wife, Kylie, and has been practicing dentistry here ever since. He has three active young children who keep him busy as a devoted soccer dad in the summer and hockey dad in the winter. When he gets a little time to himself, he enjoys running, skiing, cycling and ballroom  dancing.

Dr. Girgis is a member of the Canadian Dental Association, the Ontario Dental Association, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, the Ottawa Dental Society and the Ottawa Dental Study Club. He also participates in the Ottawa Dental Society’s emergency referral service, working on call once a month to respond to dental emergencies for patients who have no dentist, or whose dentist is unavailable that day.
