Meet the team

Meet the hardworking people behind Harrow Dental Office. 

Dr. W. John Whitehead


Dr. Whitehead graduated from the University of Windsor in 1984 and as a Dentist from the University of Western Ontario in 1988. He enjoys all aspects of family practice and has worked at Harrow Dental his entire career. The variety that providing all levels of treatment to young and old keeps the days challenging and never the same. With the support of the dedicated team at Harrow, he strives to stay current with dental technology, materials and techniques.  He feels very fortunate to be part of a smaller, tight-knit community that values relationships and trust. He feels that many of his patients truly care about him as much as he does them. He feels fortunate to have started his career with two senior partners, Dr. David Lawton and Dr. Michael Ohler, who taught him that being a dentist involved much more than just doing dentistry. Their contributions and legacy are a huge part of why the Harrow office has been a part of this community since 1974. He is an active and proud member of the Essex County Dental Society and the Ontario Dental Association since 1988. He has two children, Max and Lily, that have quickly grown into young adults and he’s excited to see where their life’s path takes them. With this newfound free time, he hopes to see his golf game improve as it is something he enjoys and finds relaxing. Indoor winter tennis provides some afterwork fun and exercise that he enjoys too. He recently got back into playing the drums, an early life passion that was dropped when schooling had ended. John looks forward to welcoming existing and new patients to Harrow Dental.

Dr. Christine Brady


Dr. Brady graduated from the University of Windsor with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry in 1993, and continued her studies at the University of Western Ontario, receiving a Masters of Science in Biochemistry in 1996.
