Dr. Kaplan has been practicing dentistry on Dundas street since 1993 and has enjoyed seeing the neighborhood change and grow and has loved getting to know the people, especially his loyal Portuguese clientele, many who have moved out of the neighborhood but still continue to come back and see him on Dundas street.

As an immigrant himself Dr. Kaplan is very grateful for the advantages his adopted home of Canada has given him and is always looking to give back to his community.  Dr. Kaplan makes donating back to the community at large a priority in his life and has even sponsored some local kids, athletic teams.
