Our Team

Southend Dental aims to provide individuals with a comfortable and relaxing environment where we strive to exceed your expectations through professional results and our friendly staff.

Dr. Susan Bader (HBSc, DDS)

Dr. Susan Bader received her education from the University of Western Ontario in 1992. She has been practicing dentistry at the Southend Dental office ever since.

Over 19 years of experience at the same practice has afforded Dr. Bader the wonderful opportunity to create and sustain long-standing relationships with her patients. This is very important for Dr. Bader, since an integral factor in her approach to dentistry is thoroughly educating patients about their dental treatments and dental health processes. Being caring, approachable, honest, and committed to thorough quality care are qualities Dr. Bader most prides herself with.

She has also been able to acquire an extended team of hygienists, assistants, and receptionists who are skilled at what they do and work great together. Together with her long-standing, committed team, Dr. Bader is able to provide dentistry for the whole family, focusing heavily on preventative care such as hygiene, oral cancer screenings, TMJ/TMD care, and more.

Dr. Bader is also committed to participating in continuing education courses to further her knowledge of dentistry, and is a member of the CDA, ODA, Guelph Dental Society, and in good standing with the RCDSO.

When she’s not in the office tending to her patients, Dr. Bader can be found spending time with her husband, 2 children (ages 17 and 15), and dog. She also enjoys traveling and skiing.

Dr. Aleem Kherani (HBSc, DDS)

Dr. Aleem Kherani received his dental degree from the University of Toronto in 2009.  While studying in Toronto, he was involved in many programs to support his dental class, and the community.  Prior to his dental education, Dr. Kherani received his HBSc in Life Sciences from McMaster University in 2005.

“My dental philosophy is grounded in patient-centred, team-based treatment.  I care about your experience as a patient and ensuring you feel comfortable and confident with your dental treatment plan.  To accomplish this, my team and I focus on providing the highest quality dental treatment and developing  long-term, trusting relationships with patients.  I strive to treat all patients with dignity and respect and recommend treatment in an evidence based manner. ”

When not at work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, and can be regularly found at the local movie theatre.
