Dr. Meredith Evans

Dentist and Owner

Dr. Meredith Evans grew up in Orleans, studied Biochemistry at the University of Ottawa, and graduated with her dental degree at the University of Toronto in 2011.

She is interested in all aspects of dentistry but is passionate about airway health after her devoting hundreds of hours to learning more about integrative health and wellness. She is fascinated by sleep-disordered breathing, sleep apnea, muscle dysfunction and jaw development in children. She is an avid learner and her mission is to educate parents about this field and to help prevent the growth of sleep apnea in adults by treating the root cause in children.

She is married with two young daughters, loves hiking in the forest, kayaking, biking, playing soccer, cooking, and baking.  She has travelled to Italy, Brazil, Costa Rica and Peru and would love to visit India and Thailand.

Dr. Evans is very excited to come to Manotick and meet new families. She loves exploring the area, attending the local gymnastics clubs, community events, coffee shops, and restaurants, and feeding the ducks at the Mill with her girls.

Dr. Jason Sidon

Dentist and Owner

Dr. Jason Sidon was born in Ottawa and chose to return there to begin his career and family after graduating in 2014 from The University of Western Ontario. He enjoys jogging, hiking, cycling, skating, and skiing in the beauty of his hometown. A fan of baking bread and pizza, he also loves the Blue Jays, Titans, Sens, 67s, and Atletico (basically all Ottawa sports teams!). He also has a passion for playing guitar and music. A loving father and husband, he is also committed to taking his three young children on memory-making adventures.

Dedicated to continuous learning and education to enhance his career as a dentist, Dr. Sidon met Dr. Meredith Evans in 2014 at a local Manotick dental study club, and they have been learning and working together ever since. Jason feels fortunate to be in a profession that allows him to help people look and feel their best and is committed to ensuring his patients receive the most from their dental treatment and experience.

Some highlights of his career include restoring hundreds of smiles with implant therapy, developing a protocol for airway and breathing treatment in several Ottawa dental offices, and assisting many people with care under different levels of sedation. He finds it immensely rewarding to educate his patients about their health and to work with them in achieving their goals and overcoming barriers.

She performs comprehensive health assessments, including infant feeding assessments, and performs a procedure to release tethered oral tissues using a specialized carbon dioxide (CO2) laser.

Michelle has developed a deep understanding of tongue function and the impact this organ has on the development of our mouth, facial structure, and upper airway.

Michelle has taken a special interest in studying the systemic health consequences of oral restrictions, oral dysfunction, and underdeveloped jaws, which contribute to common medical conditions like, jaw joint (TMJ) dysfunction, Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), and Attention-Deficit or Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Dr. Sacha Singh

Dr. Singh helps patients feel calm and relaxed by providing IV sedation for our patients.

Dr. Singh earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Toronto and following a one-year general practice residency at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Toronto, he completed a Masters Degree and specialty training in Periodontology, also at UofT.
