Staff seemed to genuinely careMatt, Strathmore, AB, 29 11 15

Very respectful of my issues and offered many different options. Staff seemed to genuinely care. I was seen within minuets of my scheduled appointment time and felt their process to be very efficient. Despite being a strip mall dental office, it didn't feel that way inside. Everything was very neat and organized. The front end staff was very friendly and helpfull. They had about 6 private rooms, which I prefer verses some clinics that are more open where the stations are only divided by cabinets and small dividers. Very nice.
