From its contemporary logo and website design through to its services, Today Dental is an of-the-moment dental office.
Transforming the experience to empower the patient in the dentist’s chair, Today Dental’s focus is on educating people on their oral health and treatment options, and leaving them to decide how best to move forward.
“We provide all of the tools for the patient to make the decision – because at the end of the day, it’s the patient who’s the boss of their oral health,” says Dr. Todd Honcharik, owner of Today Dental.
The progressive dental practice also invested in modern technology which allows patients to see work being performed on their mouths while underway – allowing the patient unprecedented access and inclusion in their dental health process.
While the Today Dental brand is new, the owner of the former business in the same space, Dr. Wayne Bohn, started his practice downtown over 30 years ago. Dr. Bohn continues to work part-time while the new owner, Dr. Todd, builds on his legacy of a longstanding, trusted downtown dental practice.
“Dr. Bohn was really interested in finding the right person to take over his business,” says Dr. Todd, “and I’m honoured he entrusted me with the care of his patients”.
As comfortable as it is convenient, the Today Dental office is located along the skywalk at 504-428 Portage Ave.
Not falling prey to dental office decor (sub)standards, Today Dental breathes new life into the industry through its welcoming environment.
“It’s all about the customer experience, so we really want to make the environment feel a lot friendlier and less sterile than a lot of the traditional experiences,” says Dr. Todd. “Going to the dental office is sometimes really uncomfortable for people, so any step that you can take to make sure someone’s feeling safe and comfortable is really what we’re going after.”
Part of the inviting atmosphere is in the decision to be centrally located, providing easy access to the many neighbouring professionals.
“Owning a downtown practice isn’t the same as owning in the suburbs,” says Dr. Todd. “I love the vibrancy of the downtown, (and) believe in it. I have a lot of Winnipeg pride and being a part of the downtown community is where I want to be.”
