About Dr. Marcarian
Dr. Dana Marcarian
“If you have a dream and believe in yourself, anything is possible. Thank you Waterdown, for helping me make my dream reality. We look forward to serving you.”
Dr. Dana Marcarian (Dana) dreamed of becoming a dentist from a very young age. Her grandmother, who at the time was a denturist, recognized her granddaughter’s profound interest in the art of dentistry. “Grandma nurtured my creative side, with labstone and spatula, and taught me how to carve out teeth from dental wax.”
Dr. Dana never gave up on her childhood dream to become a dentist and to serve the public. After graduating from the University of Toronto, Dr. Dana began her work at a private practice as a dental associate.
Her passion for dentistry and commitment to knowledge drove Dr. Dana to enrol in multiple continuing education courses. To be on top of her game and to better serve her community she grew her resume of expertise. Dentistry is an ever-evolving profession and Dr. Dana has always remained ahead of the curve, in both technology and application.
In May 2018 Dr. Dana opened her own clinic here in Waterdown. She and her team are very proud of the new location, the unique services and environment Magic Dental offers. The office envisioned by Dr. Dana creates a calming spa like look and feel with the use of aromatherapy, essential oils (upon request) and soothing music.
Dr. Dana is committed to providing a stress free experience for the whole family. She has an excellent track record working with children and making them feel at ease, while gradually building their confidence in coping with a dentist visit.
Outside the office you can often find this dedicated hockey mom, by the rinkside at her son’s games. She is an avid animal lover, with two dogs named after Portuguese soccer players, Coco and Figo. Dana is passionate about dedicating her time to her family and patients equally.

Magic Dental Services
Some of the unique service offerings available:
Dental implants are the closest replacement for teeth. They are fixed into the mouth like our own teeth to reduce the risk of bone loss and enhance the speech, appearance and chewing ability. Dental implants are a viable solution for replacing missing teeth permanently without touching neighboring teeth. Our dental implant services are a safe and hygienic way of replacing a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. Most people qualify for implants but there are exceptional cases in which the patient doesn’t qualify. Dr. Dana can evaluate your case to see if you are a good candidate.
A healthy, beautiful, natural smile is not just something for movie stars, but something everyone can enjoy. Living your life with a straight smile is much more achievable than you might think. Invisalign is a revolutionary and virtually invisible way to perfect your smile without braces as the system involves a series of clear plastic aligners that progressively and gently move your teeth into place. This type of treatment can correct improperly aligned teeth, crowded or unevenly spaced teeth, bite problems and can align the upper and lower jaws. Dr. Marcarian is a certified, experienced Invisalign provider who can help you achieve exceptional results.
Regular preventive care plays a vital role in keeping your teeth and gums healthy by avoiding gum disease or by keeping this under tight control. Early diagnosis and treatment can help you avoid more costly dental problems that may develop or be worsened by lack of basic preventive care. Our hygiene appointments and regular check-ups can make a big difference in your oral health. During hygienist visits, we give your teeth a professional deep clean. It is important to see a hygienist regularly as the lack of deep cleaning can cause gum disease. During check-ups we make sure that everything is in order with your oral health, while acknowledging any issues at an early stage.
Children's Dental Care
As dental professionals, we believe in preventive dental care and encourage our patients to bring their children to the practice from an early age. Regular check-ups from a young age will ensure children won’t suffer from untreated dental decay with devastating effects to their growing dentition. We treat every child as unique and work carefully to build a positive relationship with them based on trust by talking about the procedures and instruments in order to reduce their fear of the unexpected.
Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation
Do you have teeth sensitivity, rapid tooth decay or a receding gum line? Dr. Marcarian is certified in a minimally invasive procedure for gum recession correction, called Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation. This method is scalpel-free and sutures-free with minimal discomfort, swelling and bleeding. The magic of this procedure is that the Pinhole patient can resume light normal activities within 24-48 hours in most cases. Correcting a gum recession can prevent sensitivity and tooth loss since the supporting tissue and bone structure will be within the normal margin. Please Do Not ignore gum recession and make an appointment immediately for an evaluation of your individual case.
Many people experience a wide range of dental problems due to tooth decay, gum disease, jaw joint problems, abscesses or even accidental damage. Dr. Dana’s intention is to save and rebuild, rather than remove problematic teeth, whenever possible. Restorative dentistry allows us to repair damaged teeth and gums with the latest techniques. Missing teeth can be replaced with modern skills to achieve optimal comfort, function and appearance.
Dentures are artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums. If an accident, a disease or poor oral health care has left you with only a few healthy teeth or none at all, your dentist or prosthodontist might suggest dentures to replace your missing teeth. There are 2 types of dentures: partial and complete. For both types of dentures your dentist or specialist makes a model of your teeth by taking impressions. The models are used to custom-make your dentures.
NEW TECHNOLOGY! No more uncomfortable injections. Our new freezing system instantly numbs teeth painlessly! This is a new exciting technology which patients and dentists have been dreaming about for decades! So we are pleased to be one of the first practices to offer it. We always try to bring the best available technologies to our practice and this new anaesthetic is targeted at specific nerves therefore patients are NOT left with a Numb Tongue, Lips or Cheeks. Once the freezing is applied the patient feels just a Slight Vibration from the system as the anaesthetic is delivered straight where it is needed. If you have fear of dental needles then come and try our new painless technology.
For patients whose lips are relatively thin and lack volume or definition, lip augmentation is the perfect solution. Performed using a mild local or topical anaesthetic, lip enhancement is most commonly performed in an office setting using injectable fillers in order to represent a simple solution for enhancement of lip appearance, reversing early signs of aging and improving self-confidence.
Root Canal Treatment
Dental pain can take many forms and can seriously impact your quality of life. Symptoms can include sensitivity to hot or cold food, sharp pain when biting down on food or even a dull aching pressure in the jaw. If you are feeling discomfort or pain, this may be a sign that you require root canal treatment to relieve dental pain and save your tooth. The dentist replaces the diseased nerve with special materials by carefully removing the pulp inside the tooth, cleansing, disinfecting and shaping the root canals, and then placing a filling to seal the space.
If your tooth is damaged but not lost, a crown can be used to restore its shape, appearance and function. The simple dental crown encircles the tooth to protect it, like a shell in case you have a root canal, a large filling or a broken tooth. However, when the tooth is too damaged, the practitioner proceeds with a crown to be fixed on a post and core. This method consists of placing an inlay-core intermediate part to be attached to the root of the tooth. After a preliminary intervention, the crown is then set on the intermediate inlay-core.
In the case of a tongue or lip tie, the natural movement of those parts will be less effective. We are offering a treatment in our office, provided with a soft tissue laser. Laser treatment is considered a kinder treatment as opposed to scissors or scalpel and is ultimately safer. In laser treatment there is little to no bleeding, and the chance of an inadvertent cut is significantly minimized due to the extremely precise control afforded by the laser. After the procedure, the recovery is relatively quick and in many cases, immediate.
Magic Dental offers all the typical dental procedures one would expect from their dental professional clinic. It is our goal to always be expanding our treatment options and to include cutting edge technology to best serve our patients and the community.
