Having a special interest in Orthodontics and Dental Implants Dr Erwood took a part time two year Orthodontic Course – The Canadian Straight Wire and Functional Orthodontic Program. As Toronto was selected as the first Branemark (Noble Bio-Care) training facility in North America there was a lot of interest in Oral Implantology and Dr Erwood pursed as much education as possible in this field. He is a founding member of the Toronto Implant Study Club and was the past president of the Ontario Study Club of Osseointegration. He is current president of the Canadian Straight Wire Study Club. After seven years in practice Dr Erwood and Dr Bourke relocated their practice to a Health Centre in downtown Unionville and were in a cost sharing relationship with another local Dentist. When that dentist retired Dr Erwood and Bourke brought in a third partner with a hybrid of the Lean and Mean Dental Office system first presented by Dr Rick Kushner. Dr Erwood has lectured across North America on topics ranging from Orthodontics, Dental Implantology and Practice Management. He has a special interest in Mini Dental Implants. When not in the office he enjoys spending time with his family (three children, 3 grandchildren) and pursing sports such as snowboarding, wakesurfing, tennis and hydrofoil kiteboarding.
