My first dentist in Canada. The result was excellent and still works flawlessly after almost two decades. Thank you!

Dr. Chin and team were amazing when interacting with my 10 year old daughter. She is terrified of having any dental work done, and after her first visit here she was calm and relaxed. She has asked me to make this her regular dental care office. Dr. Chin was great with her. She showed my daughter what tools she was going to use and the procedure. It was very comforting to see. I'll be booking future cleanings for all my kids here. Thanks for being so welcoming.
Been going to this dentist since I was a kid and the staff are always very friendly. The dentists and hygienists go the extra mile to make sure my teeth are well taken care of!
