Meet our Team

Dr. Bilal Paracha

Sedation Dentist

I grew up in the GTA & completed my dental degree at Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at Western University in 2016. I currently practice all aspects of general dentistry but I have a special interest in paediatrics, oral surgery, and sedation/sleep dentistry.

I am a strong believer in lifelong learning & regularly continue my training in advanced dental procedures. I have successfully treated thousands of patients suffering from dental anxieties/phobias. I have significant experience in complicated extractions, impacted wisdom teeth, bone grafting, and the replacement of missing teeth using dental implants. I am also trained in PRF/PRP which allows for a faster recovery time after surgery, with better outcomes, and less pain!

I am a member of the Ontario Dental Association, Canadian Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry & the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario.

Outside of dentistry, I love to travel the world & learn about different cultures, food & history. I am also an avid sports enthusiast & a die-hard Toronto Raptors, Blue Jays & Maple Leaf’s fan. I am excited to provide dentistry to the local community and look forward to serving the town of Hanover!

Dr. Vinod Nair

Medical Anaesthesiologist

My name is Dr. Vinod Nair and I am the medical anesthesiologist of the team. I am looking forward to helping put you and your child at ease, and to make any dental work nothing more than a mere dream.

I was raised in New Brunswick, and completed my Bachelor of Science degree at the University of New Brunswick, I received my Doctorate of Medicine at Memorial University of Newfoundland. It was there that I decided to become an anesthesiologist, and completed my residency at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario in 2001. After graduation, I worked in New Brunswick at the Saint John Regional Hospital for 7 years.

From there, I moved to Owen Sound in 2008. I served the Grey-Bruce community by working at Grey Bruce Health Services in Owen Sound for over 13 years, and I also provided anesthesia services at the Centre for Personal Enhancement for 12 years and counting.  I joined Surgiservices in August 2022 to further my involvement in Out of Hospital dental anesthesia. Owen Sound is where I have laid roots, literally and figuratively, and have three very active children. Outside of my career, I enjoy gardening, basketball and hiking. I look forward to working in Hanover and meeting the medical and dental sedation needs of you and your families.

Dr. Sergio Weinberger

Dual Certified Specialist in Pediatrics and Orthodontics


I am Dr. Sergio Weinberger.  I was raised in Uruguay and Peru.  I studied in Mexico and the United States.  I moved to Canada in 1986 and found my true home in Ontario! 
After my training to become a dentist,  I spent 2 more years learning to be a specialist in Pediatric Dentistry.  I was a tenured Professor of Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario, but I felt there was a void in my abilities,  so I went back to school for 2 more years to become a specialist in Orthodontics. To solidify my knowledge,  I then spent 6 years to become American Board Certified in both Specialties. (That means I am a dental nerd!)   I am always so proud to provide excellence in care for growing children, working with growth and development.  I have 35 years of experience working with kids of all ages and abilities and dental challenges.  I like to make dentistry fun.  I am blessed because my profession brings me true joy through my interactions with my patients, their families, and my colleagues.

I have 6 children, so very little surprises me!  When I am not spending time with them,  I am an avid motorcycle rider, and I love to eat. ( I cannot cook, so I am very lucky my wife is a fabulous chef!) I spend lots of time at the gym working off the meals, and recently participated in the London Fight to End Hunger Boxing event!  

I am thrilled to be a member of the amazing team at Hanover Sedation dentistry.  
Dr. S.J. Weinberger, D.D.S.,Dip. Pedo, F.R.C.D.C.(Pediatric Dentistry),M. Cl. Dent., F.R.C.D.C. (Orthodontics) Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.

Dr. Howard Tse


Dr. Tse attended McMaster University where he received his undergraduate degree and completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at New York University in Manhattan where he was one of six students who were admitted into the university’s Honours in Prosthodontics Program. Although his studies focused on veneers, implants, crowns, and bridges, Dr. Tse now specializes in all areas of general dentistry with specific interests in implant and cosmetic dentistry. He is also the published author of several articles in the Journal of Dental Research. Dr. Tse enjoys playing basketball, traveling, experiencing new foods, and cooking in his spare time.

Dr. Keyvan Tcherassen


Dr. Tcherassen attended York University to receive his Honours Bachelor of Science in Psychology. He completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the prestigious Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Toronto. Terrified of dental visits in his youth, he somehow made his way to becoming a dentist. As such, Dr. Tcherassen understands the anxieties and fears that prevent many from seeking dental care. Dr. Tcherassen employs a patient and caring chairside manner, alongside various sedation modalities to calm and put his patients at ease.

Dr. Tcherassen practices all aspects of dentistry, being particularly interested in surgery and implants. He places great importance in oral health and prevention of disease as he believes that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Dr. Tcherassen believes that everyone deserves access to care, as such he has spent time visiting disadvantaged communities in Jamaica and Guatemala providing dental services to underserved communities.

In his personal time, he enjoys cooking, baking, cycling, swimming, and traveling to his native country of Italy. Sometimes when he’s missing home, he likes to cook up an Italian meal. Dr. Tcherassen is looking forward to providing advanced dental care and serving the community in Hanover.

Dr. Elen Kirilovski


Hi! I’m Dr. Elen Kirilovski but call me Elen. I received my bachelors in Kinesiology and Health Science at York University and continued to dental school at Nova Southeastern University in Florida.  I believe in creating a comfortable and judgment free dental home for all of my patients and am very excited to serve the community of Hanover. I practice all facets of dentistry but have a special interest in cosmetic work, and treating your kiddos. Nothing makes me quite as happy as seeing a patient gain confidence in their health – and their smile!
As a mom, I understand how scary it may be to navigate care for your child. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have to make this experience as comfortable as we can for you and your little ones. 

In my spare time you will find me hanging out with my family and trying all sorts of different foods. 

I am looking forward to meeting you and your families!

Alison Murphy

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello everyone, my Name is Alison Murphy and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist!  I’m looking forward to meeting all of our new and existing patients at the Hanover Dental Sedation Clinic! I have over 6 years in the Dental Industry. I did all of my studies in Toronto, ON at George Brown College, Where I completed 4 programs while studying there. 
I was born and grew up in Bruce County and I have been away from the area  for over 9 years and it’s time to come home! Thanks to Dr Paracha and his amazing dental team for welcoming me with open arms and allowing me to join their dental practice! My goal as a Dental Hygienist is to provide the utmost care by helping you reach your oral hygiene goals! I know most people are anxious to visit the dental office for dental cleanings but be rest assured our appointments together will be calm and you will have a say in your oral hygiene, I like patients to have a voice about what they want instead of what they need so they feel included in their dental care plan. 
During the days I am not at work you can find me spending time with our family dog tucker or out horseback riding.

Joanne Murphy RN

Sedation Nurse Certified Anaesthetic Assistant

My career began at Toronto General Hospital, (UHN) as a pre-operative nurse in cardiothoracic surgery, working in lung and heart transplantation. This experience led me to a lifelong interest in anesthesia and the part it plays in all aspects of surgical and non-surgical procedures. 

The Bruce Grey area lured me north to a handsome man, where I continued working in the operating room and emergency departments of a local hospital for almost 25 years. This environment gave me the opportunity to assist doctors in providing safe anesthetic care for people ages 2 to 92.

Receiving an anesthetic or sedation can at times be filled with anxiety and the fear of the unknown. Rest assured at Hanover Dental Sedation our main priority is your or your family members’ safety and comfort. Our goal is for you to be well-informed and relaxed for the experience. 

In my leisure time, I enjoy being with my family, traveling, and writing the next great Canadian novel, not necessarily in that order.

It is a privilege to work with this amazing team of doctors, nurses, and assistants. We will care for you or your family member like they were one of our own. I look forward to meeting you or your family if you choose Hanover Dental Sedation.

Dental Assistants Level 2

Hey! My name is Kaylee!

I graduated from Georgian College in 2021. Since graduating I knew that I wanted to work in an oral surgery office.

We strive to make sure that you are getting the care you deserve.
It is a pleasure to work alongside an amazing team of assistants, doctors, and nurses. I am looking forward to seeing you in our office for your dental appointment!
While I’m not at work I enjoy walking my dog, cooking, and hiking (preferably the Bruce Peninsula), camping and spending time with my family.
