Altima Dental was founded in 1993 by two dentists, Dr. Sven Grail and Dr. George Christodoulou. Their passion for dentistry has been a key factor in the growth of the Altima group of dental clinics over the past 26 years and Altima now provides compassionate dental care to patients at more than 100 clinic locations across Canada. In addition to the Altima Dental Brand, Altima Affiliate clinics operate under various brand names in six different provinces. All of our providers take continuing education courses to stay current with advancing dentistry and ensure that our patients receive the most recent scientifically proven treatment methods that take the mouth-body connection into account.
Altima also believes strongly in increasing access to dental care for all Canadians and giving back to the communities that we operate in. Find out more by clicking here or search the #AltimaGivesBack hashtag on social media.

“Everyone at Altima management is on a first name basis. It feels like family.“
“I’m Sven Grail and I’m the CO-CEO of Altima Dental, and Altima Dental was founded in 1993 by myself and my partner”
“And back in ’93, this sort of venture was a little bit of a revolutionary approach because dental service organizations weren’t as prominent as they are right now. But we had a plan, and we stuck to our plan, and little by little, we grew a company. “
“My name is Dr Anil Makkar and I became a part of the Altima Family in 2015. I’m not a big fan of corporate dentistry but Altima was different. What I realized with Altima is that since Dr Sven and Dr George are dentists, they can talk the same language that I can. They understand where I’ve been, understand where I want to be.”
“One of the things for Dr George and myself was the aspect that we always enjoyed dentistry. And we also took a tremendous amount of pride in continuing education and higher levels of continuing education.”
“The transition with Altima Dental was very easy, very seamless, and something that I was very happy with.”
“We are this amazing network, we’re not just an individual clinic. We have this amazing network of people and talent out there that all of our teams have access to.”
“With their systems and processes, we can track virtually anything within the practice. We can track where the patients have heard about us. We can track all of our dental supplies. We can track financing. We can track what treatments patients are having. It has made my life extremely easy when it comes to following up and tracking information within the practice.”
“Really, absolutely nothing has changed. Truthfully, we’ve gained a bigger family with Altima and it’s allowed me a lot more opportunities as a dental therapist to work in other clinics.”
“My biggest mistake was thinking that it was a corporation. It is not. Altima is a family and a family organization and it has been a wonderful experience and I’m very happy with it.”
“We want most of their time to be spent taking care of the patients. So everything else, all of the other things that are considered backroom such as accounting, marketing, human resources, and so all of that is centralized and it’s given to people that trained for those functions.”
“It has allowed me to free things up, let me do the dentistry that I love doing and allow me to do continuing education courses and also frees me up personally to spend the time on that work-life balance that was so missing before, with this opportunity. At my age, this has been a dream come true as I can keep working within the practice that I have grown and developed for the last 30 years.”
“Typically the discussion goes, ‘what is it you want to change?’. Because we’re coming in and partnering with a successful practice owner. We’re not coming in and saying we’re going to reinvent the wheel. You’re already successful, how can we help?”
