Bio: Dr. Emel Arat completed her dental training at Hacettepe University in Turkey and she obtained a Ph.D. in Orthodontics from Ankara University in Turkey. Soon afterwards Dr. Arat moved to Canada where she completed her Canadian dental programme (with Honours) and then her Canadian orthodontic training, both at the University of Toronto. In 2011, she has become a Fellow in the Royal College of Dentists of Canada (FRCD(C)).

Dr. Arat is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Dentistry, Discipline of Orthodontics, an Associate Member at the School of Graduate Studies at the University of Toronto and also owns Leaside Orthodontic Clinic in Toronto. She has had scientific presentations both nationally and internationally. She holds memberships in the Canada Association of Orthodontists, Ontario Association of Orthodontists (past president), Toronto Orthodontic Study Club and the European Orthodontic Society, in order to stay current on all the latest advancements in the orthodontic field.

Dr. Arat likes the art and science behind orthodontic treatment. It gives her the ultimate gratification to customize orthodontic treatment according to her patients’ needs and then provide the proper therapy with advanced techniques. She strongly believes that, reserving sufficient time to inform her patients about the cause of their orthodontic problem and the underlying principle of the treatment are the keys for long lasting, healthy and beautiful smiles.

A South Leaside resident, Dr. Arat, is happily married to her husband, Arin. They are blessed with a son and twin girls. Dr. Arat likes to travel and read, however, as her children are very young, she now enjoys the rare quiet moments in her life!
