Dr. Lily Sammak



Lily was born in Tehran, Iran, and moved to Toronto as an adult after finishing her M.Sc. in Genetics. After some time working at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, she decided to move to Saskatoon to begin her Dental education at the University of Saskatchewan.  
Lily is a loving wife and dedicated mother. Though she has enjoyed living in various places (such as the Middle East, Europe, and Canada), she derives true happiness from taking care of her young son and spending time with her family. Lily is as likely to be found swimming, going for long walks, or doing yoga as she is relaxing over coffee and fine pastries with close friends.
Through her years of a dedicated dental practice, Lily has come to find enjoyment in pediatric dentistry, esthetic dentistry, and oral surgery. In particular, however, she loves developing life-long relationships with patients and the inevitable friendships that develop.

Dental Therapist

Dental Therapist

Amy was born and raised in Saskatchewan, graduating from high school in a french immersion program and went to the U of S finishing her post-secondary studies at the national school of dental therapy in 2008.

Amy is passionate about patient education and loves to pass her many years of knowledge in dental care on to her patients, especially those who may have never visited a dental office in the past. When Amy is not in the office you can find her in the kitchen trying out a new plant-based recipe, in her garden self pollinating her tomatoes with an electric toothbrush (ask her about this-it is true) or planning her next trip abroad.

Amy’s love of travel has taken her to many countries and she has been lucky enough to practice dentistry as far north as Tuktoyaktuk, NT as a dental student and as far south as Peru with kindness in action, a volunteer dental organization. If you get the chance to sit in Amy’s chair, you are also likely to hear about her 16-year-old cat, Milo.

She has been a part of the Saskatoon Dental Group team since 2009.
