The Doctors
Dr. Ali Kapasi, Dentist

Known around town as a go-to family dentist and dental consultant to local insurance companies, Dr. Kapasi is a hometown hero. He attended three top universities before returning to KW to run Waterloo Family Dental in 1996.

As a member of the Waterloo-Wellington Dental Society, Dr. Kapasi provides at-cost mouth guards and dental advice for families in our community, frequently volunteers with seniors’ programs in the region and has generously volunteered with the charity Health Outreach, travelling to Central America on missions to provide much-needed dental services. When he’s not with patients, Dr. Kapasi enjoys time with his family, music of all genres and sports — especially hockey and basketball. It’s no surprise that our practice sponsors several local kids sports teams.

Dr. Nayan Modi, Dentist

Dr. Modi’s history is one of both patient and practice. He officially joined Waterloo Family Dental in 2015, but has been coming to the clinic since childhood, where Dr. Banduk inspired and mentored his interest in dentistry. Since then, however, his passion for oral health spanned the globe, learning dentistry in Hungary and travelling to India, Ecuador and Costa Rica on volunteer dental missions, and more recently updating his education in implant restoration and oral surgery for wisdom tooth extractions. In addition to providing amazing dentistry, he’s known for his gentle, thoughtful approach. Highlights in Dr. Modi’s week include helping patients who are suffering from pain and fixing teeth so that patients are once again confident in their smile.

Outside the office Dr. Modi likes cooking and renovating their home, although their baby girl is the new focus of Dr. Modi and his wife.
