I always enjoy visiting with my dental hygienist Samantha she’s so lovely. She always remembers our last conversations details of my life. She’s very thorough with her work making sure every last bit of plaque is removed from my teeth. Always offering helpful hints and suggestions relating to latest options or techniques. She’s very knowledgeable. The girls are also very friendly and helpful at the front desk. I highly recommend this place and always look forward to my visits.

Highly recommend! I have lots of anxiety about going to the dentist. They made me feel comfortable, the staff is friendly and professional and I know I am in good hands. Corinne was my hygienist, she did an awesome job at cleaning my teeth and giving me educational tips and information.

Despite my circumstances and anxiety about being there, I had 2 great ladies with me. Personable, always on point to ensure I wasn’t feeling pain and followed-up with a hygienist who was just as thoughtful before I left from my last visit. There is no doubt for me that I will be going back and will likely bring some family members into this great group of women who DO care and I’m grateful to have met a few so far, even got a check-up call this morning. Know any dentist office is not a favoured go to for so many, but I felt like I was in a fireside chat environment for the limited time I was in the waiting rooms and that was because I was early each time

    • Sensitivity
    • Residual numbness from anesthetics
    • Grogginess (if sedated)

    To ensure a swift recovery without any unforeseen complications, our doctors will provide you with a complete aftercare plan to follow along with at home. Depending on the procedure, your maxillofacial surgeon may also schedule a follow-up appointment to make sure your recovery is going according to plan.

    Contact our office right away with any questions or concerns, especially if you experience any of the following conditions:

    • Dry socket
    • Excessive bleeding
    • Excessive pain, swelling, or bad odor (signs of possible infection)
