History

Direct Dentistry Services, Ontario's first seniors’ dental service organization, was founded in 1991 by Dr. Peter Brymer. Dr. Brymer recognized the unique needs of seniors in long-term and retirement care through his experience with aging patients in his Toronto practice. In discussions with colleagues, he realized that those needs could best be met by a specialized service.

In our first year, DDS served six Toronto facilities, offering preventive and denture services. From the beginning, our flexible approach has been appreciated by patients, caregivers and families, and we have grown exponentially in response.

We now have four treatment teams, serving 6,000 patients in close to 200 facilities throughout southern and central Ontario. Our services have expanded to include a range of restorative,denture, and emergency services that can all be performed on-site.
