Our Office

A Warm and Welcoming Environment

Dr. Jim Kivinen and Dr. Paul Kinson opened Upper Gage Dental Centre in May 1978, in a little plaza located on the margins of Hamilton. It’s hard to believe that back then, their only neighbours were farmers! Despite its (at the time) remote location, the practice was immediately successful, thanks largely to our friendly staff. Some of Upper Gage Dental’s original staff members are still employed with the office and have developed great relationships with patients over the years. Although the practice still continues to operate in the same plaza, in 2004 they moved a few doors down to a larger and much more modern facility.

Upper Gage Dental CentreConvenient Hamilton Location to Serve You

At our office, we know that when it comes to dental care, patients are looking for two things: comfort and convenience.

Comfort is number one, because let’s face it: not everyone likes coming to the dentist! We understand the importance of making you feel welcome and relaxed. When you walk into our office, you will enjoy our comfortable décor as you are greeted by a team of friendly professionals who know how to put you at ease.

We recognize that convenience is another important factor. Our office location is easily accessible to all of our patients, right by the Lincoln Alexander Parkway and close to local bus stops.

For your convenience, our office also provides:

  • Easy scheduling– morning, evening and Saturday appointments are available.
  • Electronic filing of insurance claims– we eliminate all the messy and sometimes confusing paperwork.
  • Quick and efficient payment– we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Debit – flexible payment plans are also available.
