Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Dr. Derek Segall graduated as a dentist from the University of the Witwatersrand. He served in the South African Defense Force for a year following graduation before he started working as a dentist. Dr. Segall decided to immigrate to Canada in 1998 after working in private practice in South Africa, and following his arrival, he joined our practice here at Amberwood Dental Centre.
Dr. Segall is an active member of many dental associations, including the Toronto Academy of Dentistry, the Ontario Dental Association, the North York Study Club, and the Toronto Crown & Bridge Study Club. To provide his patients with the most updated dental services, he has taken courses at the Pankey Institute for Advanced Dentistry in Florida.
Patients, as well as members of our office staff, note that Dr. Segall has a very gentle and kind disposition. He also is very patient and treats those around him with the utmost consideration.
While Dr. Segall is very passionate about dentistry and enjoys helping us run our busy practice, he also enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. Some of his hobbies include aviation, gardening, and staying in shape by biking and working out.
