By blending personalized orthodontic care at each visit with the latest technology, Dr. Gawlik’s goal is to produce excellent results in the shortest time possible. Her focus is on treatment individually tailored to children and adults of all ages, that often avoids the removal of permanent teeth. She is very comfortable treating children with special needs, including those with Down Syndrome, autism and ADHD.
Patients at Mississauga Orthodontics see Dr. Gawlik every time they come in for an appointment. This ensures that patients’ treatments are overseen by a Specialist every step of the way and results are optimized in time and quality.
Born and raised in Etobicoke, Dr. Gawlik attended St. George’s, Broadacres, John G. Althouse, and Martingrove C.I. She returned to her hometown after completing her studies in NYC and is happy to be raising her three children here.
When she’s not seeing patients, she enjoys long-distance running, boating, paddleboarding, and all water sports.
Dr. Monica is passionate about giving back to and strengthening the community. She actively supports many children’s charities, especially the Hospital for Sick Children.
