Meet Our Caring Practitioners

Hampton Smiles, formerly Sparkle Dental Care Hampton, has been servicing the Bayside area for over 40 years. Originally opened by Dr Ross Green, the dental surgery started on Bay Street in Brighton in 1980. In 2013, Dr. Kenny Lee and Dr. Kai Xu took over their Bayside practice turning it into Sparkle Dental Care Hampton. In its third iteration, Hampton Smiles continues to provide quality dental care for our patients and families.
