Dr. Michael Nightingale completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree with Honours at the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry. Prior to his dental training, he studied both Biology and Medical Sciences achieving a dual degree with distinction from the University of Western Ontario.
Dr. Nightingale prides himself on his ability to communicate with his patients. He strives to create an environment where his patients know all of the possible treatment options available. He then works with each individual to help them make informed decisions that cater specifically to their own wishes and needs. Dr. Nightingale has been recognized externally for these attributes and was awarded the Canadian Dental Association Student Leadership Award and the Gordon Cressy Leadership Award during his training at the University of Toronto. Additionally, he was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honour Society in 2015 in acknowledgement of his dedication to patient care and outstanding character.
In 2014, Dr. Nightingale traveled to a small village in Nepal where he provided dental care for the under-serviced community living in the area. While there, he was able to gain first hand exposure to the negative consequences caused by a lack of dental education and inadequate oral care. This experience inspired his dedication to always treat his own patients here in Markham with the absolute highest standard of care. He is a member in good standing with the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario as well as the Ontario Dental Association. In his free time he enjoys travelling, scuba diving, snowboarding and relaxing with family and friends.
