Our 26 Favorite Dentists in Edmonton

Our 25 Favorite Dentists in Edmonton
We extensively test and research all services we review. Here's why you can trust us.

Have a toothache, an accidentally-chipped tooth, or need to have your teeth cleaned? These top dentists in Edmonton can get you the care and services you need! 

Our team listed and reviewed the following dentists based on our personal experience – looking into factors like accessibility, expertise, professionalism, and overall customer experience. 

How We Picked the Best Dentists in Edmonton

We evaluated the dentists based on the following criteria: 

Accessibility: We first checked how accessible the clinics are by looking at their overall responsiveness and whether their websites provide an intuitive way to inquire and schedule appointments. We also looked into whether or not they have emergency services. 
Expertise: Of course, we included the cream of the crop in the profession. We only included dentists with an excellent track record and extensive experience. We also prioritized those with a wide range of expertise and who can handle different procedures easily and efficiently.   
Professionalism: Aside from skills, professionalism is extremely important, especially since anxiety surrounding dentist appointments is prevalent. So we included dentists that are easy to talk to and work with. 
Customer Satisfaction: Lastly, we also checked other patients’ feedback. This gives us good insight into the overall patient experience and the consistency of their services.

Dr. Brian Fedoretz is one of our go-to dentists for general dentistry and Invisalign® clear braces. He has extensive experience and a proven track record, but what drew us even more to him is his easygoing attitude and patience with his patients. 

We like how passionate he is about what he does. He works with extreme precision and skill, based on what we’ve seen. 

He’s also very thorough and gives you a detailed explanation of your treatment options, so you’re well-informed. We appreciate him taking the time to clearly show the problem so that we could understand and explain potential fixes. 

We also really enjoyed the overall experience at University Dental Choice. They have a lot of dentists and professionals on their team, making things easy if you need referrals. 

All their dentists and hygienists on board are professional and have solid credentials and experience backing up their work. 

They even offer a wide range of services outside general dentistry, such as children’s dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and periodontal services. We also like that they have equipment for all kinds of dental exams should you need them. 

Requesting an appointment is easy through their website, and they have a fast response time for calls. They can also accommodate emergency services, which is a great bonus. 

However, they do have a strict cancellation policy. So, make sure to give a two-business days’ notice because you might have to pay a cancellation fee if you don’t! 

As for pricing, they’re pretty standard because they follow the Alberta fee guide. So, we didn’t have any complaints there. 

Pros

  • Warm approach to patients 
  • Wide range of services outside general dentistry 
  • Easy booking process 
  • Emergency services available

Cons

  • Strict cancellation policy 
  • Inconsistent hours for non-emergencies

Professional, friendly, reassuring, supportive, and an absolute pleasure

I can not express how awesome the people here are. I’ve never had anything done to my teeth asides from cleaning and x-ray and every single person I spoke to here was professional, friendly, reassuring, supportive, and an absolute pleasure while I was dealing with my first ever extraction. Their costs are very affordable as well but if anything else come here for the people. Thank you everyone, life long client now! -Samantha L. 

Welcoming, knowledgeable, and takes the time to explain everything

I have been going to this location several times. All of the staff are incredibly nice, attentive, and considerate. My dentist, Dr. Fedoretz, is welcoming, knowledgeable, and takes the time to explain everything. I feel safe and comfortable in their hands. I would recommend this clinic to anybody! -Nargess Tavakoli

If you’re looking for a dental clinic that’s very involved with the community, you may want to check out Jagare Ridge Dental. 

This clinic has a strong reputation for its proven track record and the dentists’ great rapport with their patients, but they also volunteer at schools in the area to promote dental wellness. They’re also known to sponsor and participate in community events. 

We can attest that the quality of their services is superb and that they care about the community they serve. We were able to interact with Dr. Kendra Barkman in particular and we loved her patient-centered approach. 

She really prioritizes patient comfort and makes sure to check on her patients the whole procedure. A lot of her patients would agree that she’s very gentle and that her extensive experience is apparent in her efficiency and results. 

Aside from Dr. Barkman, there are plenty of other dentists on the roster and they have a moderately-sized team with different functions. We found that they work effectively and quickly. 

We love that they have a lot of complimentary services such as teeth whitening and x-rays for new patients. They also give free check-ups to children 3 years old and below. 

We also found their prices very reasonable. They even offer a lower rate than what’s specified in the Alberta Fee Guide! 

They also offer direct billing and even help you file paperwork for your insurance. This is such a huge help, based on our experience. 

Overall, with their convenient booking system online, accommodating personnel, and highly competent and amicable dentists, we highly recommend them to clients in the area looking for professional dental care treatments.

Pros

  • Patient-centered approach 
  • Involved in the community 
  • Assists you with insurance concerns
  • Lower rates
  • Complimentary services for new patients and children below 3 years old 

Cons

  • No clear financing options
  • Alternating weeks open for Saturdays

Definitely the best dental experience I’ve had since I was a teenager

I switched to this dental clinic partly because it’s close to home, partly because it has great reviews and most importantly because my experience at my old dentist was brutal.

All the staff are very friendly and the building is nice and new. They even have TVs on the ceiling to help keep you distracted while they drill away in your mouth.  Getting my teeth worked on was almost painless, however my jaw was sore for days.  Definitely the best dental experience I’ve had since I was a teenager and my dentist gave me lots of nitrous lol. -Gunner

All of the staff here were so friendly and compassionate 

I had a great experience at Jagare Ridge Dental. I usually get pretty anxious about going to the dentist as I struggle with chronic jaw pain – but all of the staff here were so friendly and compassionate which made me very comfortable throughout my visit.

Dr. Barkman was an amazing dentist and I would recommend her to everyone. She is very kind, explains procedures well, gave me options, and made it an overall pleasant experience. I will for sure be coming back to see her again! -Krista G.

Note: For the purposes of this review, we looked into the South Edmonton branch. 

Dr. Tan from the Calgary Trail branch is trained here in Edmonton and graduated from the University of Alberta with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery and Bachelor of Medical Science degrees.

He’s won many academic awards for his excellence in periodontology and clinical dentistry, making him an ideal choice if that’s what you’re looking for. He has extensive experience and is well-known for his skills in oral surgery and root canal therapy. 

Plus, we like that aside from English, he’s also fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese. We found Dr. Tan professional and warm the whole time we were there. 

We’re also fans of how well he explains procedures and because he makes sure that it doesn’t sound too intimidating. He answers all your questions the best he can and he’s so friendly all throughout. 

Smiles Dental Group is a huge franchise with numerous branches so transfers and referrals are so easy and convenient, based on our experience. They have a huge team of dentists that you can choose from. 

All of their dentists are top-notch with extensive experience and great credentials. They also cover a wide range of services, from simple cleaning procedures to dental bridges – they have you covered.  

One thing we also noticed is that their rates are very reasonable and are even slightly below the average rate, so you can check them out if you’re working with a limited budget. 

They have established financing options and their receptionists can even assist you with insurance concerns. They’re very friendly and accommodating in that regard. 

That being said, since they’re a huge clinic and fairly in-demand, they may not respond to inquiries quickly if you call them. They do have a good online booking system, though. 

Their website is also cluttered; making it difficult to look through their services. So that’s something to consider.  

Pros

  • Top-notch dentists 
  • Multiple locations
  • Well-known for oral surgery and root canal therapy
  • Reasonable rates 

Cons

  • Responses to inquiries can be slow at times
  • Cluttered website 

They really take their time to explain the procedures and all the possible options to the patient

Yesterday was my third time at the Smiles Dental Group (Calgary Trail location), and every single visit has been absolutely wonderful. The front-desk staff are very courteous and knowledgeable and inform you of any charges well ahead of the appointment. The services provided by the dentists are top-notch, and they really take their time to explain the procedures and all the possible options to the patient. This was also my second time getting a dental cleaning at the clinic. Both were done by Diana who is simply outstanding at her job – highly skilled and very personable. I highly recommend this clinic to everyone! Keep up the great work. -M.S. 

Has a wonderful attitude and is great to be around

I have visited 2 locations for Smiles. I’ve had great experiences at both but Dr. Tan is an amazing dentist. He really has a wonderful attitude and is great to be around! I’m very comfortable and don’t feel shame for my teeth around him which I have felt before at other dentists! He has given me the greatest gift of truly being confident with my smile and I am so thankful for that. Chloe and Bailey at the spruce location are also absolutely amazing, too. As long as Dr Tan is in my area, he will be the one I go to! Thank you all so much for being wonderful to your patients, it’s so nice to feel truly cared for and not just seen as a “money maker”. Thank you so so so much and I really do look forward to my next visit!!! -C.M.

Expertise4.8/5

Efficiency4/5
Customer Satisfaction5/5

Dr. Harbuksh Sekhon from Gallery Dental is very reliable and easy to work with, based on our experience. He graduated from the University of Manitoba Dental School in 2003 and has since built a strong reputation as a dentist in Edmonton. 

He has a background in immunology and studied dental implantology, orthodontics, and periodontics. He also specializes in general dentistry, which he is highly passionate about, and it shows. 

Dr. Sekhon also works with the insurance industry to examine oral health conditions related to car accidents and other incidents. So if you need a dentist specializing in that, he’s a great option. 

Aside from Dr. Sekhon, we can commend the clinic’s efficiency, responsiveness, and customer care. Their staff is very warm and welcoming, from what we’ve seen. 

We like that they offer a wide range of services outside general dentistry. They have updated equipment to address the specific oral health needs efficiently such as laser dentistry, digital radiography, iCat 3D scanners, endodontic microscopes, CEREC same day dentistry, etc. 

It’s also reasonably easy to get an appointment here, and walk-ins are even welcome at times. Plus, the amenities are lovely. 

They have ceiling-mounted TVs, noise-cancelling headphones upon request, patient chairs with built-in massage functions, and even fresh coffee and bottled water while you wait – so yes, they offer top-notch patient care. 

We do wish they had more in-house dentists aside from Dr. Sekhon, though. We noticed that if you need specialized care, you’ll still have to be referred to an outside clinic – so that’s something to consider. 

Overall, they’re a great option still.  We love going here because we feel well-cared for – it’s not surprising they have a perfect score on Google Reviews. 

Pros

  • Updated technology and efficient solutions 
  • Specialization in dental implantology, orthodontics, and periodontics
  • Amazing amenities 
  • Top-notch patient care 
  • Clear financing options guidelines 
  • Walk-ins are welcome 

Cons

  • Closed on Mondays and weekends
  • Only one primary dentist in-house

They absolutely went over and above and were extremely understanding

Such an amazing and accommodating office. They absolutely went over and above and were extremely understanding. They use the best technology and the office is very aesthetically pleasing. Not to mention, Dr. Sekhon is very good with treating children and is extremely knowledgeable. Gallery Dental absolutely exceeded my expectations I highly recommend them! -Bridgette Denison

Dr. Sekhon and everyone who works there is very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional

I’ve been going to Gallery Dental for years and have had nothing but good experiences. Dr. Sekhon and everyone who works there is very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. They listen to any problems you have and don’t stop until they help you. The equipment they use for procedures and dental cleaning is state of the art and makes the process as comfortable and painless as possible. I have already referred them the rest of my family and to a coworker for his son who had problems with other dentists and he has nothing but great things to say about how they helped his son. Would highly recommend to anyone. -Darce Klein

Affinity Dental Kingsway has three in-house dentists, one of which is Dr. Fawad Ahmed. We highly recommend him because of how great he is with patients, based on our observations. 

We all know that anxiety about dentist appointments is common.This is why we love how Dr. Ahmed goes over and beyond to explain procedures and gently care for his patients to ensure minimal pain. 

He also has extensive experience and incredible skills, so procedures don’t take long. Aside from Dr. Ahmed, the clinic has other in-house dentists and a large team, so referrals and transfers are very convenient. 

Plus they’re one of the best in the game for emergency care. They offer same-day appointments and are very flexible schedule-wise, which is such a bonus for people who are busy during the week. 

We also like their financing options because they have a high approval rate and low monthly fees. 

We observed some of their work on tooth-colored fillings and teeth whitening, and we were very impressed with the results. They’re also highly recommended for periodontal care, crowns, dentures, and bridgework. 

Overall, we find Affinity Dental Kingsway very reliable and a must-visit here in Edmonton. Their clinic has a nice and welcoming atmosphere and we always enjoy going here. 

One thing we think they should work on are their online forms. We found that they respond faster when you call them instead. 

Pros

  • Great for emergency services; flexible schedule-wise
  • 3 in-house dentists available 
  • Affordable financing options 
  • Great with periodontal care, crowns, dentures, and bridgework

Cons

  • Online forms not that reliable 
  • Sedation information not available on their website 

 I’m very apprehensive with dental work but this staff and Dr. Fawad Ahmed are considerate to this and very gentle with work needed to be performed.

Great front staff and excellent dentists.  Always on time with clean environment.  I’m very apprehensive with dental work but this staff and Dr Fawad Ahmed are considerate to this and very gentle with work needed to be performed. I would recommend this office and Dr Fawad Ahmed with no problem. -Joy L.

I’m scared of going to a dentist but this is the first time that I’m not afraid and the dental work is painless

Had the 2nd appt for my crown. Dr. M. Fawad and his dental assistant were absolutely fantastic. In no time.at all they had the temporary crown removed and got the gold crown ready and put in place with no problems at all. Excellent dentist Dr. Fawad is. I’m scared of going to a dentist but this is the first time that I’m not afraid and the dental work is painless. It’s hard to believe but true. Don’t know what his secret is but I’m definitely continuing to have him as my dentist. Also excellent and friendly front office staff. Overall a good experience and would recommend this Dr. Fawad and Affinity Dental to anyone. -Sandi P.

Customer Satisfaction4.6/5

If you’re looking for a dentist specializing in dental surgery, Dr. Michelle Lee is one of the best in the game. She has extensive experience of over 15 years and a great bedside manner, making her a quick patient favorite. 

We can attest to her skill and efficiency because we saw and experienced it firsthand. We also love that she explains everything about your procedure clearly and makes sure to answer all your questions. 

Aside from Dr. Lee, there are two other talented dentists at Apollonia Dental Clinic with different specializations. This gives patients more options if they need referrals. 

They also have a sizable team of assistants and hygienists, so they’re very efficient and can accommodate a large number of patients. 

We also love that they’re one of the few clinics that are open even on Saturdays for most of the year – perfect for those busy at work during the week. 

Do know that they require a 24-hour notice to reschedule your appointment. If you fail to do so, you may be subject to a cancellation fee. 

They offer a wide range of services from what we’ve seen. From general dentistry to orthodontics and complex surgery, they have it covered. 

Although they have some equipment such as the iTero scanner, we noticed that they don’t have some of the specialized technology some of the clinics on this list have – so if you’re looking for something in particular, you can ask them in advance if they have it. 

One thing we think sets them apart is how fun everyone in this clinic is! They have a good sense of humor and make sure to build rapport with their patients – we highly recommend them if you’re looking for a friendly and reliable neighborhood clinic. 

Pros

  • Three in-house dentists 
  • Sizable team of dental assistants and hygienists 
  • Accessible location 
  • Responsive to inquiries 
  • One of the best in tongue-tie release procedure
  • Open on Saturdays from September to May 

Cons

  • Lacks some high-tech equipment other clinics offer
  • Cancellation fees apply 

They explain things every step of the way

My family and I were referred to Apollonia by a close friend and we are so thankful! The staff are all so wonderful, warm and friendly. They explain things every step of the way and take time to answer all your questions. They do a very thorough and comprehensive check up! They were also so good with my 3 year old and let him touch and explore and get comfortable before starting his exam. I can’t say enough good things about Apollonia Dental Clinic! – Olivia B. 

Overall best dentist I have found in Edmonton

Transparent service, the Dentist (Michelle Lee) always explains to you what she is planning to do and what your options will be. Does not force you to get a bunch of filings if not that bad. Close to my house so I like the location and front desk is always friendly. I watch Netflix during my appointments to make the time go faster. Overall best dentist I have found in Edmonton and not planning on switching. Thanks! -Jared Janotta

Dr. Sylvia Lau is a fellow Edmontonian having attended Vernon Barford Junior High and Harry Ainlay High. She then graduated with her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and has been part of Southgate Dental Centre for over 30 years at this point. 

Dr. Lau specializes in general dentistry, dental surgery, implants, crowns and bridges, and esthetic dentistry. We love her gentle and careful care as a dentist. 

We also like that she makes sure to answer all your questions about procedures and provide great aftercare. We always feel very taken care of when we go here. 

We can vouch for her attention to detail and skill. She’s also part of the Canadian Dental Association and the Alberta Dental Association so we know that she’s highly-vetted. 

Including Dr. Lau, they have seven dentists on board with each of their own specializations, so you have a lot of choices. Referrals for specialized treatment will be an easy process if ever. 

They also have a huge staff that is very warm and welcoming. Their receptionists are friendly and would answer all your questions about booking appointments, insurance, and financing options very patiently. 

Aside from their efficiency, we also like the level of patient care here. They have free parking, free WiFi, ceiling-mounted TVs, clean blankets and pillows upon request, and even a children’s playroom. 

Overall, they’re one of our favorite clinics. They’re extremely kid-friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed. 

That being said, they do lack some of the specialized services that the other clinics have. So that’s something to keep in mind. 

Pros

  • Great amenities 
  • 0% interest financing options available 
  • Specializes in general dentistry, dental surgery, implants, crowns and bridges, and esthetic dentistry
  • Seven in-house dentists 
  • No cancellation fee

Cons

  • Inconsistent operating hours 
  • Not a lot of extra specialized services

Always very friendly and professional

LOVE the staff at Southgate Dental!  Always very friendly and professional, as well as reasonable prices.  Would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family.  Everything is always very clearly explained, and they don’t inundate you with suggestions for work to be done that isn’t necessary.  They tell me what they would recommend doing in the near future but never any pressure from them.  I live in Sherwood Park, but the drive is well worth it just to receive the service they provide! -Heather Q. 

The staff are very helpful in dealing with our insurance company and optimising our benefits

Our family has used Gallery Dental for years. The office has up to date equipment and a pleasant atmosphere. The staff are very helpful in dealing with our insurance company and optimising our benefits. They are very accommodating with our schedule’s and even have helped us after hours. We would highly recomend this office. They will treat you like family! -Karen G.

Dr. Sandilands has built a strong reputation as a dentist in Edmonton. She has been practicing dentistry since 1994, so she’s been in the field for quite some time already. 

She has extensive experience and great passion for the field. What drew us to her, however, is her patient care and love for what she does. 

She’s fun, enthusiastic, and has a great sense of humor. She used to have a phobia of dental work as a child, so she’s very passionate about helping children and adults with anxiety surrounding dental appointments. 

She also is a whiz at dental freezing. So if you’re scared that you’re the type who doesn’t respond to freezing well, we highly recommend you check her out.  

They also have different approaches to sedation, so you have choices. They’ll also make sure to educate you on them so you make a better-informed decision for your needs. 

Aside from Dr. Sandilands, the clinic has another dentist and a huge team of hygienists and assistants to help with a wide range of dental needs. They have an extensive range of services. 

One of the strengths of the clinic is their accurate diagnosis, making them a prime clinic if you need help figuring out what’s wrong. They have DIAGNOdent laser cavity screening and VELscope oral cancer screening readily available. 

We do think their website and online forms need work. It makes it a bit hard to look through their services especially if you’re a new patient. 

Based on experience, calling them is the best way to get a faster response. So we recommend that you do that when booking an appointment or inquiring. 

Pros

  • Great at dental freezing 
  • Good option for those with dental-related anxiety 
  • Equipment available for faster diagnosis and screening 

Cons

  • Website is outdated
  • Online forms not as reliable

This was by far the best experience at the dentist I’ve ever had

If it’s possible to have a great experience at the dentist, this is the closest I’ve ever came! The staff were all very friendly and welcoming, and I had the pleasure of having my appointment with Dr. Kathy Sandilands. I was repairing a front tooth that had been chipped very badly, was very insecure about it and also not the best with the dentist. Kathy was very patient and understanding, and her assistant was amazing and friendly as well! I was worried there would be an obvious colour difference (especially with it being my front tooth?, and not only was the colouring perfectly matched, the work was all done in under an hour. This was by far the best experience at the dentist I’ve ever had, and I highly recommend these amazing ladies! -Lelaina P.

If you’re difficult to freeze, or have had negative experiences with other dentists, I highly recommend this clinic

I’d give more stars if I could. Dr. Sandilands is extremely thorough, she listens to all of your concerns, and she make sure that she is aware of any factors that may affect freezing, dental health, and your comfort as a patient. I had a bad experience six years ago with another dentist, so I was very anxious now that my old cavities needed prompt attention. Dr. Sandilands put me at ease and took the time to discuss all of my concerns. She filled a deep cavity, adapting her technique as she explored the tooth. Afterward, she told me what to expect, and under what conditions I should call back for further work. If you’re difficult to freeze, or have had negative experiences with other dentists, I highly recommend this clinic. Even if you’re easy-freezy, you’ll appreciate their thorough, professional, friendly service. -George B.

Dr. Muntaka Shah is one of the leading dentists here in the city known for his love for his work and great rapport with patients. In fact, he has been on seven international dental trips, working with remote communities in Ecuador and Nepal. 

He’s a fellow Edmontonian who graduated from University of Alberta and obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2011. He has extensive experience and is known for his meticulous attention to detail. 

So if you’re looking for someone capable and efficient with oral surgery and general dentistry, Dr. Shah is a great option. He was mentored by Dr. Emad Morris, the dentist who opened Lumos Dental. 

In cases where Dr. Shah is not around, you might see Dr. Morris filling in. Despite not having a lot of dentists on board, they have a supportive team with a hygienist, a dental assistant, a sterilization assistant, and a dental administrator that are responsive and easy to work with. 

Booking an appointment is easy enough although we find that they respond faster when you call them compared to when you do it through their online forms. 

They have a wide range of services as well – making them a great one-stop shop for all kinds of dental concerns. They also have state-of-the-art technology such as a 3D intraoral scanner, digital x-ray, and panoramic x-ray for faster examinations and detailed diagnosis. 

For those anxious around needles, you’d be glad to know that they have Calaject, a computer-assisted virtually pain-free injection. This is a game changer for people with a low pain tolerance. 

That being said, we do think they can be more organized because there were some reports of confusion about their processes. We also noticed that they’re not that fast when dealing with the administrative side of things, so that’s something to consider. 

Pros

  • Great rapport with patients 
  • Wide range of services
  • Calaject available
  • Advanced tools for better diagnosis 

Cons

  • Can be a bit disorganized at times 
  • Online booking can be a bit slower compared to when you call 

I never felt so comfortable going to the dentist

I never felt so comfortable going to the dentist. Everyone was so kind and caring but also ensured that my visit was extremely comfortable for me. I am so happy I found this place and I cannot wait to get their help and get me back on track. I will be recommending this place to everyone and anyone who needs a dentist. – Stephanie V.

He was transparent and extremely knowledgeable 

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I came to Lumos Dental for the first time for a teeth cleaning last week. Immediately I was greeted by the receptionist and I went to the room for a cleaning. Daniela was SPECTACULAR! She kept the process so seamless, explaining every single step to detail and why it was needed – a very professional individual. Dr. Shah then examined my teeth and explained what next steps I needed. He was transparent and extremely knowledgeable – I was honestly very very impressed by my experience and expertise there. It felt like a family of individuals genuinely caring for your needs which I loved the most!

I highly highly recommend Lumos Dental! Thank you Dr. Shah and Daniela! -Raj

Dr. Ahmad Fayad is the main dentist and owner here at Aldergrove Dental Clinic. He earned his DDS at Dalhousie University and has extensive clinical experience – something that is very apparent when you see how efficient and hands-on he is. 

His skills in restorative dentistry and special interest in orthodontic and cosmetic procedures make people seek him out – he’s just that good. He produces quality work in an efficient manner. 

More than his skills, we love how accommodating and friendly he is throughout your whole procedure. He goes over and beyond to make sure you’re not experiencing too much pain and that you’re comfortable. 

Aside from Dr. Fayad, there’s one other in-house dentist and a sizable team who ensures that the clinic runs smoothly – from booking an appointment to dealing with financing options. 

Speaking of financing options, we’re glad you can avail of 0% interest and low monthly payments here. This makes quality dental care more accessible to more people, which we’re happy about.  

Aside from being financially accessible, we also like that they make themselves more accessible by having a weekend dentist that welcomes walk-ins on Saturdays. This is perfect for those with limited availability like some of our team members. 

We also like that they care of new patients, handing out free electric toothbrushes and professional teeth whitening kits when you have your check-up or cleaning. 

Their website is also updated for the most part, and their online forms are reliable. So booking an appointment is a breeze. 

We do wish that their website discussed their insurance or direct billing process. Based on experience, you have to call them to know specific details. 

Pros

  • Great at restorative dentistry and has special interest in orthodontic and cosmetic procedures
  • 0% interest plans available
  • Weekend dentist available 
  • Intuitive online booking 

Cons

  • Limited information on accepted insurance plans 
  • Closed on Fridays and Sundays

Very clean and modern! The Dr was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything very well. They were not pushy! Thank you Aldergrove dental clinic! -Nicole L.

Dr. Fayad did an amazing job

Everyone from the dentist to the staff are superb friendly. Dr. Fayad did an amazing job, he was very honest and informative. For sure, my family will be coming back for all our dental needs. I highly recommend if you’re looking for a dental clinic in west end. -Joyce

Customer Satisfaction4/5

If you’re looking for a capable and kind dentist for young kids, Dr. Jehan Nanji is one of our top picks! We’ve seen her work with toddlers and she goes over and beyond just to help them be more comfortable.

Dr. Nanji obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Alberta and got her Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Saskatchewan. She has been practicing for over 10 years at this point, so she’s been in the industry for quite some time.  

We found her to be very skilled, accommodating, patient, and professional. Aside from Dr. Nanji, there are four other dentists at this clinic, and they’re all very skilled and capable. 

They also have a wide roster of dental hygienists, assistants, and staff. So they’re very reliable, responsive, and can accommodate more patients compared to some clinics on this list. 

They even have a dentist assigned on Saturdays to accommodate emergencies and walk-ins. So they’re very accessible, from what we’ve seen. 

Their office is  also beautiful. It’s sleek and neat, which we really like – so plus points for that. 

If those reasons aren’t enough, they have just decreased their fees to be lower than the Alberta dental fee guide (up to 15% lower!). They also support a lot of local charities and causes – so yes, they’re a fantastic option for those hoping to get a good deal on their services. 

A drawback, however, is that they don’t have an established partnership for financing options. So that’s something to consider. 

The clinic is also equipped with the latest technologies and amenities like a digital x-ray, digital panoramic x-ray, two TV monitors in each room, and intraoral cameras. 

Aside from that, they even have an iPad/Xbox setup at their reception area to keep your little ones entertained while waiting. This is very comforting, especially for parents out there who need as much support as they possibly can because going to the dentist can be stressful for young ones. 

Pros

  • Kid-friendly 
  • Equipped with latest technology and amenities
  • Reasonable fees
  • Huge team of professionals

Cons

  • No established financing option
  • Closed on Sundays 

They both made me feel informed about my dental health and options for the future

I had not gone to a dentist in about 10 years but everyone made it a positive  experience. I had my teeth cleaned and x-rayed by Kaitlyn who was very kind and informative. I also saw Dr. Nanji who was also kind and very informative. They both made me feel informed about my dental health and options for the future. I HIGHLY recommend going to Albany Dental. -Samantha N.

Goes above and beyond, takes the time to educate you on everything she is doing and why

Albany Dental has been awesome for myself and my family! I have 2 young toddlers and the staff (especially Dr. Nanji) have been wonderful at helping them get comfortable at the dentist. All the hygienists are wonderful – especially Laura! She goes above and beyond, takes the time to educate you on everything she is doing and why. Love the text messaging communication so that you can wait in your car until they’re ready for you. Glad I found this dental office! -Carmen N.

Dr. John VandenBrink is the primary dentist at Glenora Dental Family Dentistry with over 25 years of experience. After meeting him, we saw how passionate he is about his job and how caring he is to his patients. 

A lot of his patients would agree that he has a caring demeanor and a warm personality. He’s also very receptive to children – making trips to the dentist less scary for them. 

As for his specializations, he’s known for his preventive care, pediatric dentistry, emergency dental care, and cosmetic dentistry. Based on our observation, he’s also very capable when it comes to restorative procedures such as ceramic crowns, bridges, veneers, and teeth whitening. 

Aside from Dr. VandenBrink, there’s only one other in-house dentist, but they have a moderately-sized team of dental hygienists and dental assistants. We found them all very easy to work with and capable. 

Plus, we like that they have updated technology like digital x-rays and rooms equipped with monitors and TVs so you can see visuals backing up your dentist’s explanations. 

That being said, there are a few reports saying that the front desk is not as responsive as you’d like them to be when you call them. So we suggest using their online form for booking or emailing them instead for a faster response. 

Pros

  • Wide range of services
  • Moderately sized team, so it’s easy to get support 
  • Dentists are great with kids 
  • Great emergency care 

Cons

  • Front desk not very responsive 
  • Only two in-house dentists

The team went over and above to ensure the most perfect fit and function for me

I’ve gone to Glenora Dental for a few years now and I love how you can guarantee, the entire team to be so kind and professional with every visit. I would highly recommend Glenora Dental to anyone! They seem to have the latest and greatest of technologies which makes each visit as comfortable as possible. My most recent visit included a night guard re-fit and adjustment and the team went over and above to ensure the most perfect fit and function for me. Thank you Dr. John and team for your outstanding service! -Amy Hooper

Love going here

Amazing dentist who actually cares about his patients. I have seen many dentists before and none of them treated me like Dr. John. He is no doubt the best dentist I have ever seen. Everybody else in the office is also amazing! Love going here. -Michael N.

Dr. Bona Zhang has extensive experience and amazing credentials to back her up. She’s one of the most-trusted dentists in the area and for a good reason. 

Originally born in China, Dr. Zhang has spent the majority of her life in Edmonton. She attended the University of Alberta and got accepted into the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry after two years of study in the General Sciences Program. 

She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and was also awarded an honorary Bachelor of Medical Sciences degree, which is very impressive. She highly specializes in oral surgery, periodontics, and oral pathology. 

So if you’re looking for a dentist who’s well-versed in that, she’s a fantastic option. We love how dedicated and passionate she is about what she does. 

She’s also very warm and friendly so it’s easy to be at ease around her. Aside from Dr. Zhang, the clinic has three other dentists and a good team of dental hygienists and assistants in-house. 

We like that the clinic is very efficient and that its processes are seamless and organized– so there’s not a lot of waiting time. They’re also easy to contact to book an appointment. 

They offer a wide range of services and even have specialized services on their roster like Botox and dermal fillers. 

One thing we noticed, however, is that their website is outdated and hard to navigate. This makes it hard to look through their services. 

Pros

  • Large team of professionals
  • Specializes in oral surgery, periodontics, and oral pathology
  • Wide range of services
  • Efficient staff
  • Limited waiting time

Cons

  • Outdated website 
  • No set financing options

I had a really great experience at Impression Dental. The service was prompt, and I spent almost no time waiting. The staff are really friendly, and the office is clean and modern.

If you’re looking for a dentist in South Edmonton, we highly recommend Dr. Thinh Le from Landmark Dental. He has over two decades of experience and is well-loved by patients from this clinic because of his passion and enthusiasm for his job and warm personality. 

He’s really great at pediatric dentistry and oral surgery from what we’ve seen. Plus, we love that he doesn’t rush appointments and ensures that patients know their diagnosis and treatment plan well. 

Aside from Dr. Le, there are two other dentists on board that you can choose from in this clinic. They also have a dedicated team that helps make processes seamless and fast. 

One of the things that we appreciate about this clinic is their reasonable prices and promos. Currently, new adult patients get free teeth whitening – which is a good deal! 

We do wish that they had a better online booking system than what they currently have. We find it better to just contact them directly via call or email to set an appointment. 

Their receptionist is usually very responsive so booking an appointment is easy. Their website is also a bit outdated, making it a bit hard to look through their services. 

Still despite these, we think they deserve a spot on this list because of their impressive patient care. They’re a great option especially for those who struggle with dentist-related anxiety. 

Pros

  • Great for patients with dentist-related anxiety 
  • Great at dental implants and oral surgery 
  • Reasonable prices 
  • Free teeth whitening for new adult patients 
  • Seamless processes

Cons

  • Online booking system not reliable 
  • Outdated website

The staff are all very friendly and helped to ease my anxiety. They explained what they were doing.

If you’re looking for emergency dental services in particular, this clinic is one of the best in the business. They guarantee to provide same-day services for patients and are open round the clock. 

They’re also very responsive – which is so important, especially for cases that need immediate attention. Whether you’re dealing with a bad toothache, chipped teeth, broken crowns, tooth abscesses, or gum infections, their dentists are efficient, capable, and prioritize patient comfort. 

We like that they’re available in so many locations, so they’re highly accessible. Aside from being accessible location-wise, they’re also financially accessible. 

They accept most insurance plans and they even help you in processing everything for your payment. When you’re already dealing with pain and worry from your dental emergency, this assistance helps a huge lot! 

The staff is warm, reliable, and very easy to talk to. The dentists are all capable and efficient based on our poll of their previous clients and some of our staff’s experiences. 

Due to the nature of their services, they have an extensive roster of dentists, and the one you’ll meet with depends on when you go there. Still, we find their services consistently top-notch even though they have a lot of dentists on-board. 

We like that they offer customized treatment plans to meet your specific needs in a timely manner. So we highly recommend them for cases that need immediate attention. 

Pros

  • Best for emergency cases 
  • Reasonable rates

Dr. Rustom Appoo is one of the four general dentists at Belle Rive Dental Clinic. He graduated from the University of British Columbia Faculty of Dentistry as a general dentist in 2000 and then proceeded to go to the US for externships. 

He’s sought after for his oral surgery and general dentistry work because he is excellent, meticulous, and has a strong reputation for the quality of his work. Not only that, he’s also very patient and easy to talk to, so a lot of patients like him. 

We know how intimidating going to a dentist can be at times, so it was great that Dr. Appoo is so accommodating. 

We also like that there are three other dentists on board with different specializations you can check out should you need a referral or if you prefer someone else to work with. 

This clinic’s range of services is extensive and even have specialized services such as laser treatment and gum disease treatment. We like how gentle they are here and how organized the processes are. 

We also find the front desk helpful and easy to talk to. Booking an appointment was also a breeze even for emergency cases. 

One thing we did notice, however,  is that they lack support for parents with toddlers. There were only chairs in the waiting areas so kids get bored easily there. 

Plus they also don’t really teach parents how to calm and help toddlers be more comfortable during procedures. So that’s something to consider, we think. 

Still, overall, we find this clinic very efficient and great to work with. So they definitely deserve a spot on our list. 

Pros

  • Easy booking process 
  • Efficient front desk
  • Four dentists on-board so referrals are easy 

Cons

  • Not that toddler-friendly 
  • Only open 2 Saturdays per month

Not only does he listen to what you are saying about any problems you have, he thinks outside the box 

I have been coming to this dental clinic for the past six months and I have to say it has been a very very long time since I have been to a clinic where all aspects are great. Let’s start with Dr.Appoo. Not only does he listen to what you are saying about any problems you have, he thinks outside the box and makes recommendations on what you can do. He also has a great bedside manner and can put even the biggest scardy cats at ease. ( I didn’t even feel the needle) Next his staff are wonderful. The dental assistants seem to really care about what they do and are very compassionate. Lastly, The front staff have always been friendly and very accommodating. This is very important to me as it is the first people you see, and being greeted in a friendly manner goes a long way and makes me want to return. I have not been to the hygienist yet for my cleaning, so I cannot review them…but knowing how the rest of the staff are I’m sure I will have a great experience also. So if you want to find a great dentist who cares, with great staff, then this is the place. I will always recommend him to friends and family. -Lou

Very friendly, patient, and compassionate staff

Very friendly, patient and compassionate staff. I have anxiety about having anything done with my teeth and they made me feel comfortable right away. They do a follow up phone call the day after you get a procedure done which really shows they care. I highly recommend them! -Kristen F.

We like Dental Elements as a clinic because of their patient-focused policies and overall quality of care. The moment you step in their clinic, you’ll be welcomed by their attentive staff and be assisted promptly. 

Their clinic is clean and sleek and the atmosphere is very inviting. Based on our experience, even kids enjoy going here because the people and the environment help put them at ease. 

Their main dentist, Dr. Bryan Layton, earned his Bachelor of Science and DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) from the University of Alberta and worked in a general clinic before opening Dental Elements. He has extensive experience and is very gentle, from what we observed. 

We like that he’s the type of dentist who really tries to get to know you and build rapport with you. He helps you understand what your treatment will entail by explaining everything as simply as he can. 

It also looks like we’re not the only ones who are fans of Dr. Layton’s work. His clinic has a perfect Google Reviews rating and is well-known in the community. 

Despite this being a smaller clinic than most, we found them efficient and reliable. They have a wide range of services and even have some specialized services not a lot of clinics offer – one of which is oral cancer screening. 

That established, some of the downsides is they don’t have an established financing plan available. You’ll have to consult with them about payment options. 

At the same time, they also close early and aren’t open during weekends unless you have an emergency that needs immediate attention. 

Still, we think they are well worth the mention especially if you’re looking for a good neighborhood dentist with amazing patient care. 

Pros

  • Kid-friendly 
  • Wide range of specialized services 
  • Gentle with procedures 
  • Attentive staff 

Cons

  • Only one dentist in-house 
  • Closed on weekends
  • No clear financing options 

Dr Layton is terrific and makes you feel at ease 

Who knew going to the dentist could be such an enjoyable and relaxing experience.  From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted with friendly faces.  My hygienist is very caring and has never caused me any pain.  Dr Layton is terrific and makes you feel at ease with his caring and knowledgeable manner.  I would highly recommend Dental Elements.  You won’t regret it. -Joan R.

He explained what could be done, then promptly went to work 

Having to up with ” bad teeth ” my entire life, I finally asked Dr. Layton if he could do anything about the gaps, crooked and rotten teeth. He explained what could be done, then promptly went to work and far exceeded my expectations. His skill and expertise is second to none. Everyone that works in the office are all skilled professionals who treat their patients like we are the most important people in the world. They’re a great group and I would highly recommend all of them !! -Howard S.

Dr. Rob Andrew is one of the most well-respected dentists in Edmonton and for a good reason. He has extensive experience and outstanding credentials backing him up, so you know you’re in safe and capable hands. 

He finished dentistry at the University of Stellenbosch near Cape Town and completed the Canadian equivalency exam at the University of Alberta. 

He then earned a post-graduate diploma in aesthetic dentistry and finished a mini-residency in orthodontics and temporomandibular disorder. So if that’s what you’re looking for, he’s one of the best choices for the job. 

Aside from these, we also like how calm and friendly he is – which is a huge help, especially for people with anxiety during dental appointments. 

We also like that the clinic has a very organized process. From booking an appointment, safety procedures, and even post-checkup or surgery, they have excellent customer support, making everything convenient. 

We also love that they offer a wide range of services, from dental cleaning, and root canals to all kinds of implants – they have you covered. 

They are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to help them perform laser cavity detections, computerized anesthetic injections, etc. 

We think they’re a great clinic to visit if you’re not sure what the problem is because they’re excellent and very thorough with diagnosis. That said, they have a moderately-sized team and only have one primary dentist, unlike more extensive franchises in this list. 

So if you’re looking for more specialized services, it might be best to check out some other clinics on this list. Despite this, we think they’re a great contender and deserve a spot on this list. 

Pros

  • Wide range of procedures available 
  • Offers Nightlase 
  • Great customer service and support 
  • Friendly and accommodating dentist and staff 

Cons

  • Team is not that big with only one primary dentist 
  • Inconsistent hours 

Very good at what they do

I have been going here for 3 years and had positive experiences with Dr. Andrew and all of the front staff and hygienists. They are very good at what they do and charge fairly. -Yaz

I will never have to look for another dentist again

I have been going to Urban Smiles for several years now and the staff are the friendliest people you could ask for. My kids are generally terrified of the dentist however Dr Andrew and his staff go above and beyond to ensure they’re both comfortable and relaxed before any procedures are done. I will never have to look for another dentist again. Well done Urban Smiles you should be proud. -Jeff Edge

If you deal with dentist-related anxiety, we highly recommend this clinic and Dr. Mossa. He has extensive experience giving dental care to people who are scared of going to the dentist, helping make it less stressful for them. 

His calm demeanor helps patients like us feel at ease. It’s not surprising that he works well with kids as well. 

He’s great with all aspects of general dentistry and even won an award for clinical excellence. You can tell that he’s passionate about his job and that he cares about his patients. 

That being said, we think work can be done to improve communications with patients about procedures. There are some reports where patients felt like the communication was unclear or rushed – so that’s something to consider. 

Aside from Dr. Mossa, we like that there are three other dentists on-board. This means that it’s easier to set an appointment and that referrals, should be needed, are easy to get. 

We like that they have dentists assigned during weekends. Perfect for those with busy schedules during the week. 

You can just call them to set an appointment. They usually respond fast during work hours. 

Pros

  • Great for patients who are nervous about going to dentist
  • Known for skills at general dentistry 
  • Four dentists on board 
  • Weekend dentists available 
  • Responsive

Cons

  • Communications can be unclear at times 
  • Inconsistent operating hours 

His level of professionalism is second to none

Kudos to Dr.Sami Mossah!!His level of professionalism is second to none.He performs his work with the comfort and wellbeing of his patients in mind.During the last 10 years I have been treated by Dr.Mossah on several occasions and am not willing to been seen by another dentist.Kudos also to the Northgate assistants!! -Glenn D.

Dr. Eguren is an established family dentist known for his warm personality and impressive skills when it comes to orthodontics. Based on our experience, he is very hands-on and ensures that all his patients are comfortable and well-informed about their choices. 

He’s part of the Canadian Dental Association, the Alberta Dental Association and College, and the International Association of Orthodontics. 

He’s also affiliated with the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, and the Edmonton District Dental Association, so we know that he’s highly vetted and follows strict protocols regarding the quality of his services. 

Since it’s a private practice, Dr. Eguren is the only primary dentist. So that’s something to consider. 

Despite the clinic being on the smaller side, we’re genuinely impressed that they have a wide range of services available and that they’re very efficient with a seamless process. It’s easy to inquire and book an appointment on their website, based on our experience. 

They even have the latest technologies and procedures such as digital x-rays, and laser gum recontouring, and are equipped with monitors and TVs in every testing room so you have the necessary visuals when Dr. Eguren discusses your diagnosis and treatment. 

One thing you have to know, though, is that this clinic’s rates are on the higher end. 

Pros

  • Wide range of services available 
  • Highly vetted with many credible affiliations 
  • Efficient services
  • Technologically-advanced procedures 

Cons

  • Rates can be pricey 
  • Alternating weeks open for Mondays and Saturdays

I cannot stress enough what an amazing dentist he is

I had such an amazing experience with Dr.Eguren and his office. They accommodated me first thing in the morning as I had a dental emergency (my regular Dentist is out of country). I cannot stress enough what an amazing dentist he is; he is very straight forward which I appreciate, he is extremely gentle and was so efficient. His RDA and Admin were so wonderful and sweet too. As someone who has worked in dental I cannot recommend this office enough. Thank you again for accommodating me! -Brittney S. 

You can tell he loves what he does

To see Dr. Eguren with his patients is truly a wonderful thing. You can tell he loves what he does. His eyes light up when talking about dentistry and engaging with his patients. His team is like a family. They are kind to each other and to others. Whenever I walk in the clinic, they are always smiling and genuinely care for their patients. -Elyza H.

Dr. Viet Tran is another trusted dentist in Edmonton because of his proven track record and great rapport with patients. Personally, we’ve seen his skill and intricate work with orthodontics, so we highly recommend him if that’s what you need. 

Dr. Tran has excellent credentials, with an Honors Bachelor of Science degree from Ottawa University and a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Saskatchewan. Aside from this, he also has extensive experience in the field. 

Aside from Dr. Tran, this clinic has another in-house dentist. Admittedly, they don’t have a huge team for this clinic, unlike the others we mentioned on this list. 

So it makes sense that their range of services isn’t as extensive as their competitors. Nevertheless, we think they’re worth featuring because of their skills, professionalism, and overwhelmingly positive reviews. 

Plus, booking an appointment here has always been easy and convenient. We also really appreciate the personalized care we get from this place, they seem to genuinely care about their patients. 

We like that they have an established financing option and that they make sure to assist you with insurance issues. This means that they’re a great option if you’re working with a strict budget. 

As a special bonus, we saw that they’re currently offering free teeth whitening when you have your teeth cleaned – a good deal if you ask us. 

Pros

  • Free teeth whitening with teeth cleaning
  • Established financing options and direct billing available 
  • Personalized customer care 
  • Specializes in orthodontics

Cons

  • Range of services not as extensive compared to other clinics
  • Small team 

All my dental work has been done to the highest of standards

A patient here of many years, I have always found everyone to be both warm and professional.  All my dental work has been done to the highest of standards and with comfort in mind. -Monique

We are continuing to get our dental care completed at this clinic due to excellence in practice

Our family has been receiving dental care at this wonderful clinic for nearly 30 years!!! We have had different procedures done, including cleaning, dental check ups, fillings in porcelain and gold, tooth extractions, root canals with either porcelain or gold crowns that remain stable. Today I had a tooth extraction with a bone graft and didn’t feel a thing!!! We are continuing to get our dental care completed at this clinic due to excellence in practice and the super friendly staff! Thank you so much for taking such great care of our family, Clearwater Dental Clinic! -Regine O’Neill

Dr. Jacob is a general dentist who opened Signature Smilez Family Dental in Edmonton. She has over 29 years of experience and is well known in the area for her proven results and attention to detail – so we were eager to check her out. 

Based on our team’s experience, she really valued patient comfort and made sure that all her patients are well-informed about their procedures and after-care instructions. She’s warm, friendly, and very easy to work with. 

Since this is her private practice, she is the only primary dentist here. She does have a complete team of hygienists, assistants, and staff taking care of different functions so everything runs smoothly, however. 

We’re impressed by how organized and seamless everything is. Booking an appointment and filling out patient forms are very intuitive and quick. 

Do know that they have a strict cancellation policy where you have to pay a fee should you fail to give proper notice two days prior to your appointment. 

We like that they have a wide range of services – from usual procedures like cleaning and extractions to more complex surgeries. The clinic even offers specialized services like botox and sleep apnea treatment. 

Overall, we think it’s a great clinic worth looking into. 

Pros

  • Great focus on patient comfort 
  • Organized and seamless process 
  • Wide range of services 
  • Specializes in dental surgery 

Cons

  • Only one primary dentist
  • Inconsistent hours
  • Strict cancellation policy 

You can tell they care for their patients

Dr Jacob is super friendly and explains everything so clearly. Her team, front staff included, are wonderful. You can tell they care for their patients and love what they do. Great place! -Marié Esterhuizen

The quality of service I received during my treatment is simply outstanding

Dr. Jessie Jacob is very friendly and truly a spectacular dentist. The quality of service I received during my treatment is simply outstanding. I have done 1 filling, and 1 tooth implant, which was done with gentle care and no pain. During the implant Dr. Jessie Jacob explained everything to me about what she was doing which I think is very professional. Overall my experience in the “Signature Smilez Family Dental” was amazing. I would like to say special thanks to Dr. Jessie Jacob, and everyone who works there, you all are doing a great job. Highly recommend! -Karan K.

Sana Dental is led by Dr. Alex Pavlenko – one of the most caring dentists we’ve ever had the pleasure to meet! We love his approach toward his patients and how he thoroughly explains procedures to make sure that everything is clear before he proceeds with anything. 

He’s known for his impressive work on cosmetic dental treatments, TMJ cases, and sleep apnea treatment. He’s hands on and meticulous, so it’s not hard to see why he’s a common favorite among patients in North Edmonton. 

Plus, he’s so good with kids! They even have complimentary check-ups for all children under the age of 3 years old. 

Based on experience, he has a warm and friendly staff that will welcome you and ensure you get the best possible care. We like that they’re reliable and easy to work with especially when it comes to insurance and financing. 

One thing we like about this clinic is its extensive range of new technology to ensure efficient solutions to dental concerns. They have digital x-rays, intra-oral cameras, dental lasers, BioPak Evaluation System and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation to diagnose TMJ cases. 

One thing that sets them apart as well is their alternative way of sedation called Nucalm, which uses microcurrent to stimulate relaxation. It’s worth checking out! 

Do know that they don’t double-book so they’re very strict with appointments. You have to give a two-day notice lest you be charged a cancellation fee. 

Pros

  • Complimentary check-ups for kids under 3 
  • Great with TMJ diagnosis 
  • Nucalm available 
  • Wide range of services 
  • Sought after for cosmetic dental treatments 

Cons

  • Strict cancellation policy 
  • Fridays are by appointment only 

He was very thorough during the procedure and always asked how I was doing

Dr. Pavlenko and his staff made me feel at home. Usually, I would be nervous going to any dentist but not at Sana Dental. I had a release of tongue tie procedure done by Dr. Pavlenko and he did a wonderful job! He was very thorough during the procedure and always asked how I was doing. He sent me home with enough material to care for my frenectomy surgery and when I saw Dr. Pavlenko for a follow up, he said everything is healing nicely. Dr. Pavlenko took his time with me when answering all my questions and he explained them well to my knowledge. He shows that he cares for his patients and that was enough to tell me that I was in good hands. He also has a good sense of humor which puts me at ease:) 🙂 All the girls at the office are very welcoming and the office is very clean, warm and inviting.

Thank you Dr. Pavlenko & Staff for all your hard work. I would absolutely recommend Sana Dental to my family and friends. -Nicole V.

Always makes sure that the patient understands every single step of the procedure and feels comfortable

Every time  I go to Sana Dental, I feel welcome and comfortable both by the friendly competence of the staff and the pleasant environment of the office itself. Dr. Pavlenko is always very supportive and thorough when explaining the process. He always makes sure that the patient understands every single step of the procedure and feels comfortable. He is an excellent professional  and has a naturally lovely personality. From the bottom of my heart, I recommend Sana Dental to everyone who is thriving to experience an exclusive high quality treatment! -Andrew B.

If you’re looking for a dentist in SE Edmonton, The Meadows Dental Clinic is one of your best options. Their main dentist is Dr. Vatsal Ghoghari, who has over eight years of experience as a dentist and a proven track record with general orthodontic treatments. 

Dr. Ghoghari finished his Bachelor of Dental Science from India and got certified and licensed by the National Dental Examination Board of Canada to practice as a general dentist. 

Since then, he has been serving in Edmonton and is one of the best dentists for family dentistry and orthodontics. A bonus is he can speak English, Hindi, and Gujarati. 

Aside from Dr. Ghoghari, there are two other capable dentists in-house, and a sizable team handling different functions and ensuring the clinic runs smoothly. Their range of services isn’t as extensive compared to other clinics on this list, so that’s something to consider. 

We found their staff warm, friendly, and approachable – we always like going here because we always feel seen and heard by their team. 

However, we think they can work on their response to their online booking forms. We found it best to call them directly for an appointment for a faster response. 

Despite having an inconsistent schedule during the week, we like that they offer Saturday slots for people busy during weekdays. They’re also very accessible for emergency cases, based on our experience. 

At times, they even accommodate walk-ins. Overall, they’re accessible and easy to work with, we can highly recommend them. 

Pros

  • Saturday slots available
  • Accommodates walk-ins 
  • Great for emergency cases
  • Specializes in family dentistry and general orthodontic treatments

Cons

  • Range of services not as extensive compared to other clinics
  • Slow response to online bookings 

The staff are very friendly and best customer service as well

Just visited The Meadows Dental Clinic, I would like inform that the Owners changed recently. I  just got done my dental cleaning and polishing with one of the filling. I would like to recommend Dr Vatsal under new management. I visited other dentists as well in the past but found the best Dentist. Definitely visit Dr Vatsal asap you can to get the same treatment I got. The staff are very friendly and best customer service as well. -Jayur G.

Dr. Vatsal is a very knowledgeable, actively listen and engaged in all your concerns.

My wife and i went to the Meadows Dental Clinic and we got our treatment from Dr. Vatsal. He is the best dentist that i know of as he always explains every procedure in detail beforehand and make sure that my wife and i feel comfortable with the procedure. Dr. Vatsal is a very knowledgeable, actively listen and engage in all your concerns. Front desk and other staff members are also very friendly and cooperative. I highly recommend Dr. Vatsal and office for all your dental needs. -Piyush P.

Oliver Family Dental is another great clinic in Edmonton that we’ve heard good things about. So we went on over to see their dentists in action by trying them out ourselves. 

Dr. Sharon Eng is one of their dentists at the clinic and we found her so warm and welcoming. We liked that she has light hands, making procedures virtually painless. 

She also has a gentle demeanor so she’s great for people who feel a great deal of anxiety during dentist appointments. Her specializations are Invisalign and working with families and children. 

So if you’re looking for a great pediatric dentist, she’s a wonderful option. Based on some of our conversations with her previous patients, she really prioritizes patient comfort and goes over and beyond to make sure children feel at ease during procedures. 

Like many of the dentists on this list, she graduated from the University of Alberta. She has had a lot of experience through the years and it really shows in her professionalism, quick turnaround, and proven results. 

Aside from Dr. Eng, there are two other dentists at the clinic and a moderately-sized team of dental hygienists, dental assistants, and people in charge of business and administrative tasks. 

We found them to be highly efficient and responsive. We didn’t have a hard time booking an appointment. 

That being said, we found their website very outdated. They have a lot of missing information, making it hard to look through their services especially if you’re a new patient. 

They also don’t have set financing options, so that’s something to consider. Still, we think this clinic is worth looking into because of its reliability and great customer service.

Pros

  • Multiple dentists on-board 
  • Great with young children 
  • Great customer service 
  • Specializes in Invisalign and family dentistry
  • Gentle demeanor 

Cons

  • Website is slow and outdated 
  • No set financing options 

Consistently knowledgeable and thorough

I’ve been attending Oliver Family Dental since moving to Edmonton 8+ years ago. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and the office was clean and modern. My dentist is consistently knowledgeable and thorough, taking the time to explain my treatment and answering all of my questions. I always leave feeling satisfied with the care I received. I highly recommend Oliver Family Dental to anyone in need of dental services. -Joshua M.

She really helped my grandson get over the fear of the dentist 

Dr. Eng is the best dentist ever. I almost don’t want to post this for fear of her getting too busy for my appointments 😀.  Very patient, detailed, and honest. My whole family goes to her. She really helped my grandson get over the fear of the dentist with her secret teqnique for freezing and her kind demeanor. Janet her assistant is great too. Very thorough and knowledgeable.  I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a dentist. -Michele A.

Yellowbird Dental is really an exceptional dental office

“Yellowbird Dental is really an exceptional dental office. They took me and my wife (we are seniors) on as a new patients a year and provided us the best service we have ever had for our complex dental situations and insurance coverage. They were accommodating with our travel schedules and were always prepared for the next steps in our dental plans. Yesterday they took me in for an emergency filling within an hour after my call. The dentists here are very professional and kind and fully explained and showed us what work they were doing each step of the way. I highly recommend these folks if you are looking for the help with anything complex or just some simple maintenance.” – Frank Lepine
