What Our Patients are Saying
We are so happy with the care given by Dr. Chin to our whole family. She is kind, knowledgeable, and skilled. Our preschooler actually looks forward to going to the dentist - which says a lot about Dr. Chin’s approach! We recommend her to all our friends. The staff at Bloor West Dental Group are also consistently kind and helpful, and we have always had good experiences with the hygienists who do our teeth cleaning.
Just had my first appointment post-COVID-19. I was very impressed with the protocols in place and check-in process from the electronic sign-in to the temperature and oxygen checks when you arrive. Clean facilities have never been an issue here and there was hand sanitizer readily available in the waiting area. Overall great experience and felt safe coming back.
Always accommodating, professional and friendly staff! Dr. Chin is thorough and creates a relaxing environment for dental care-highly recommended.
