Dr. Steven Ho completed his dental training at the University of Toronto. He then completed a hospital dental residency jointly at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Chicago. Dr. Ho returned to the University of Toronto for his specialty training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Anesthesia.

Dr. Ho has focused expertise in the area of Obstructive Sleep Apnea as well as CT-based 3D treatment planning for dental implants, corrective jaw surgery and airway size determination. Dr. Ho’s 3D treatment planning expertise has allowed him to participate as a lecturer, legal consultant and professional resource to other dental specialists performing their own surgery.
Dr. Ho founded the Credit Valley Oral Surgery Sleep Treatment Clinic in 2009. The clinic has been a trusted provider of coordinated care between dentists, family physicians, sleep physicians and CPAP providers for 6 years. Dr. Ho’s facial airway imaging technology and deep knowledge of both surgical and non-surgical solutions in the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea allows patients to have individualized solutions to their sleep breathing problems. For those that have failed CPAP and oral appliances in the past, Dr. Ho has developed a Maxillomandibular Advancement (MMA) procedure that does not require the patient to wear braces and has successfully cured patients of their Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Dr. Ho has access to level 3 home sleep testing that does not require the patient to visit a sleep lab.
Dr. Ho is currently involved in research and product development in the area of Obstructive Sleep Apnea treatment, Implant Surgical Navigation and 3D printing.
