About the Comfort Care Dental Clinic

Dr. Wallace Walford opened the dental clinic in the Drummond Medical Building in 1940. In 1985, after many years of practicing dentistry, Dr. “Wallie” retired and his niece, Dr. Joanne Walford, continued to take care of their patients’ dental needs.

For the past 77 years, the office has grown substantially in the number of patients and services offered. To respond to this rising needs, Dr. Walford expanded the practice and introduced a new partner and owner, Dr. Miki Zlatanovski.

Together, Dr. Zlatanovski and Dr. Walford and their team created one, joint, mission: To make a difference in their patients’ lives by integrating the highest quality personalized dental care and comfort.

Hence, Comfort Care Dental Clinic was born.

Today, our caring, friendly, very experienced and dedicated team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive dental experience every time you visit our Clinic.

Dr. Miki Zlatanovski D.M.D.
Position: General Dentist

Hello, my name is Miki Zlatanovski, but you can call me Dr. Miki. My top priority is to make your visit enjoyable and stress-free and to encourage you to form healthy dental habits for life.

I genuinely enjoy practicing dentistry, and take pride in providing gentle and effective dental care for my patients. I have made it my mission to listen carefully to my patients’ needs and concerns, so that I can address any questions that you may have during your treatment.  Together, we will achieve your personalized dental goals.

I have been a practicing dentist for over 16 years and received my Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the Sts. Cyril and Methodius School of Dentistry in Macedonia. After practicing in Macedonia for 5 years, I furthered my education and completed the Equivalency Program with Ordre des dentistes du Québec. I then became licensed to practice in Québec and made Canada my new home. I have been taking care of patients’ dental needs in Montreal since 2003. Your dental health and comfort are my top priority. To continuously provide high quality dental care, I constantly enhance my skills and techniques. In the past 11 years I have successfully completed numerous courses in Canada and the US in the areas of Endodontics (root-canal treatment), Orthodontics, Major Restorative, Surgery, etc.

My family and I live on West Island, and enjoy the diversity that Montreal has to offer every day. We also enjoy outdoors activities, especially, biking and skiing.­ I am an avid hockey fan and never miss a game of the Montreal Canadiens.

DR. JOANNE C. WALFORD D.D.S.

Dr. Joanne C. Walford D.D.S.
Position: General Dentist

I have been in private practice for 34 years, after having graduated from McGill University with a BSc in Microbiology and Immunology (1977), and a DDS, Doctor of Dental Surgery (1981). I was part of the clinical teaching staff at McGill, in the department of Periodontics for 11 years.

I took over the dental practice in 1985, from my uncle, Dr. Wallie Walford, who had been in the same location in the Drummond Medical Building for the previous 45 years.

My passion over the years has been to continue learning and perfecting techniques and translating my knowledge into the highest quality care for our patients. The focus of my practice has been on overall patient health and care; gum health and their surgical corrections, implant restorations, crown and bridges, esthetics, CEREC Technology (same day, digitally generated crowns), Invisalign orthodontics, and family care.

Outside of work, I enjoy time with my husband and two daughters, and I participate in many sports, including cycling, triathlon and ballroom dancing.
