Customer Reviews

This is what customers are saying about University Dental Care:

Very nice office with helpful receptionists, kind hygienists and dental assistants, and Dr. Kershaw is super cool. They also open crazy early in the morning and can fit me in before work, which is great. The only trouble is that they’re incredibly popular since they do what they do so well, so you better book early!

Checkup was covered by the U of A staff insurance, and fillings about 90% covered.

-Blair D, Yelp

I have always been nervous about going to the dentist but ever since I started going here that has become much better. I do my regular checkups here and they are always super nice and do everything to make you comfortable and understand what’s happening with your teeth. I recently pulled out all 4 wisdom teeth and the process went so incredibly smoothly and I had very minimal pain from the procedure. Dr Kershaw and his staff are amazing!!

Customer Reviews

Here’s what customers are saying about UrbanSmiles:

Urban Smiles with Dr. Andrews and his staff have been the best experience I’ve had in Alberta since moving here 10+ years ago. With the new Alberta fee guide, which they follow, I was fortunate to have my treatments covered through my insurance with little to no extra costs that I’ve had to pay. I previously would travel back home to BC for my dental appointments and am very pleased to no longer have to do that as I’ve found both a dentist and office I’m happy to be a patient at.

-Kailee F., Yelp

By far the best dentist and dental hygienist I have ever had . No pain , awesome results , friendly staff . I recommend Urban Smiles to all my friends in need of a good dentist

I really don’t like going to the dentist for any reason but Anu, Dr. Tan and his hygienist are fantastic and did such a great job that I actually look forward to my next cleaning. I would recommend this team to anyone looking for oral care that is like me and dreads a dental office visit.

Customer Reviews

Here’s a review from one of Smiles Dental Group’s clients:

“I have been seeing Dr. Yeh at Smiles Dental for YEARS! I usually visit the St. Albert location but have also needed to visit their emergency dental location on Calgary Trail. I have never had a bad experience when going in for my yearly check up, getting a mouth guard created or for the dental emergency. The staff have always been really pleasant and friendly and even when there was a scheduling mix up, they did their best to accommodate my needs. Dr. Yeh has always been really good about answering any questions I might have about my teeth, procedures and what to expect. I recommend this clinic to people all the time and most of my family have seen Dr. Yeh at one point or another. An extra bonus is that they have clinics in multiple locations (Sherwood Park, Spruce Grove, UofA). We all know going to the dentist isn’t exactly a top activity on the fun list but at least the Smiles Dental Group makes it as tolerable and pleasant as possible :)”

Here’s another one:

“Dr Yeh has been my family dentist for almost 10 years.

I first saw Dr Yeh in an emergency appointment. I had a root canal done at a different clinic with my previous dentist a couple of days before seeing him. I went to him because the pain became even worse than it was before the root canal. My old dentist told me I needed to either see a specialist or do an extraction. Neither of which seemed like reasonable options.

Dr Yeh redid the root canal and I was out of pain immediately. He made me a temporary crown and waited a few weeks before doing the permanent work just to make sure the treatment was successful. The crown still looks great and I have not had any issues with that tooth since. I have had a couple of different procedures done through the years and I can speak to his skills and abilities. My kids, husband, parents and friends see him as well.

He is a fantastic dentist.”

Here’s another one:

“I have had nothing but amazing visits to Dr Jesse over the years. Every single time I am treated very kindly from all staff. They are very professional, courteous and pleasant to be around. Never have I waited more than 5 minutes when arriving. The one time I went to anther dentist out of convenience, it was horrible and reminded me how great I was treated at signature smilez. She was kind enough to take me back and fix the nightmare another dentist had created. After feeling horrible for months they comforted me and had me feeling 100% within 2 visits. Never again well I see another dentist. Dr Jesse and her staff are amazing.”

Customer Reviews

Here’s what customers are saying about Sana Dental:

I have been a patient since the practice was purchased from Dr. Bodnar. I was a patient of Dr. Bodnar’s since I had my 1st tooth so I have been going here for 35 years. Anyway, I love the staff so much I kept them as my dentist even when I moved to Calgary. Twice a year I would make the trip for my cleanings. Sometimes I had to make trips for fillings etc. Dr Pavlenko introduced me to fillings without freezing. I was super scared but was more scared of the freezing as my 1st cavity was filled just before he took over and I was frozen for almost 24 hours. He promised me if it hurt he would stop and freeze me how ever the “pain” was less painful than the pain I felt from the freezing. I have had all my subsequent filings freezing free. If I procreate I can’t wait to bring my spawn here after they get their 1st fang too.
