05/10/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Charkiw is absolutely by far the most talented dentist on the planet. I had 14 upper and lower vaneers done and now I have a better smile than Britney Spears, Kim k. Or any other celeb. His work is incredibley natural and stunningly beautiful. I knew I was making the right descion cuz I used to see all their patients on the makeover show "style by jury." On the show u can c all the people with new vaneers at every angle. Watch people talking with their new teeth and moving their head, everything. Plus him and his wife were on every show for like 6 seasons. I saw it on YouTube. That show let u see way more than before and after pics. Honestly I thank god every day I went with him. I must have done something right in a past life to have found my way to this dr!  See Responses

28/09/13 5 5 5 5 I had my smile makeover done at Dr Charkiw's office. I am so happy!!! One of the best decisions I have ever made. Ever since I was a teen I had been self conscious of my smile. I would always put my hand over my mouth when I smiled. This all changed when I had my smile makeover at Dr. Charkiw'ss office. They were so professional and treated me so well. This procedure has changed my life completely. I highly recommend this office if your considering any cosmetic dental treatment.  Respond

15/08/13 5 5 5 5 I love my new smile. I can't believe the amount of detail and care the doctors put into making my veneers. I receive compliment after compliment on how beautiful they are. The technology they have to make their veneers in one day is truly remarkable. Very professional office. I highly recommend this office if you're considering a smile makeover.  Respond

17/07/13 5 5 5 5 I just had the one day smile makeover and am extremely happy with the result. I receive compliment after compliment on how natural and beautiful they look. All those reasons of being ashamed of my smile are now gone. This was the only office that was able to promise me the results I wished for because the doctors themselves make all the veneers themselves. They don't outsource them out to someone else that I don't even know hoping to get the results I requested. My friend just got their veneers done at another so called cosmetic dental office and not only did they have to wear these ugly temporary teeth for two weeks but their permanent veneers look bulky and fake. She now has to get them redone. I am so happy I went to Dr Charkiw's Office. I love my new smile!  Respond

07/07/13 1 3 1 2 I should mention first that I didn't actually proceed with the service. I got a very "off" feeling from the doctors at this place, the whole thing felt like they were pumping you for money. So I was surprised to come on here and see all these "5 star" reviews with affordable looking prices. I know not everyone shares my experiences and theres a likely chance that many people walked away from this office with a big bright smile. but, the amount of perfect scores is suspicious. I think staff members are making up some of these reviews. No office is perfect. My experience wasn't awful, it just felt lacking and vacuous even. Empty smiles with empty promises. The prices were outrageous. If you are considering them PLEASE GET OTHER consultations. they overcharge like it's their birthday. Staff was okay, a sea of bleached blondes, nothing wrong with that, but a bit eyebrow raising, nice enough folks at least. All in all wouldn't recommend, if you are considering them, please get 2nd opinion.

02/07/13 5 5 5 5 I had the one day smile makeover. My new teeth are absolutely beautiful! Highly recommend Dr Charkiw's office for their professionalism and expertise. Their cosmetic dental results are amazing.  I read the comment below and was quite surprised. All this individual had was a free consult. When they found out that they actually had to spend money to get  treatment they became upset and wrote this ridiculous review. Did they actually think they were going to get free cosmetic treatment?  This individual needs a reality check. These doctors did their  share of free treatment when they did all that Pro Bono treatment on Style By Jury. One last thing I need to mention, how did this person spend $7000 when all they had was a consult. The review doesn't even make sense. This site should monitor false reviews like the one below  Respond

22/06/13 2 4 1 2 If you're reading this you're considering this duo for some veneer work. Move along, this place is more overpriced than bloody Shoppers drugmart. The consultation is a waste of time, essentially they want you to deposit 500 dollars before they can give you any useful information. 500 dollars for the scans, NOt taken off the overall price of the veneers. So really, your just throwing money at them just so they can keep their fancy little building - and it does look fancy but once you step inside you realize how beautiful things can be equally frivolous and empty. The she woman doctor did not even touch my teeth before I deposited 500 dollars, if I didn't know better I'd say it was a scam. Don't quite know why they call it FREE consultation when they merely spout of google facts. It was a wasted trip. And she clearly knew as much about orthodontics as a trained dog. Definitely don't get your braces or veneers there, unless you want to indulge in throwing away your money.

24/11/11 1 1 1 1 Andrew is definitely not the best. Overpriced and very ignoring! He has some skills, but he is not good doctor , it is all about money. They only nice with you from the beginning and when things went wrong they blamed you and trying to make more money. I have done my implant 3500$ - which now is loose and he asking for more money plus I did veneering 24 pc both upper and lower. He and his wife screwed up my teeth but they never admit that. I did 24 of them and they screwed 14 of them. It is more than 50/%. They kept telling me that the problem happens with my teeth is that is because of the nature of my teeth. Clearly they are so irresponsible hungry for money people.So many nice people around and they have 3 times less price. Think twice before you go to them. It is big scam how to make you pay more and more!  Respond

06/01/10 5 5 5 5 Dr Charkiw did my veneers many years ago and I have had nothing but compliments from friends and complete strangers on how perfect my teeth look. Many don't know they are veneers until I tell them because he made them look so natural. I regularly maintain my smile with Dr Charkiw and have had an amazing experience. He is a thorough doctor and its a low pressure atmosphere. Do your homework, look at his gallery of smiles at his office then go visit another doctor in town and ask to see their cases and not stock photos of what your smile could look like, you'll see the difference. I decided to put the smile in the hands of a dentist with extensive cosmetic experience. Have a consultation with him if you are considering veneers and then visit another pratice, you'll see the difference, make sure you look at the hundreds of full smile makeover cases that have been performed in his office, its exciting to see the changes. His hygienists are also very gentle during my cleanings.  Respond

02/01/10 1 1 1 1 I had to have Dr. Charkiw's work corrected by someone else. If I could go back, I would never have proceeded with veneers. Beware, if anything goes wrong, its not his fault. He delivered a bad product and bad customer service and I wouldn't recommend him.  Respond

He's so gentle! Definitley would recommend him to everyone I know.  Respond

12/10/09 2 1 3 3 He is not the best but not the worst. He has some skills but he is not a moral doctor , it is about money. They only nice with you from the beginning and when things went wrong they blamed you. I have my veneer done both upper and lower. He and his wife screwed up my teeth but they never admit that. I did 16 of them and they screwed 10 of them. It is more than 50\%. They kept telling me that the problem happens with my teeth is that is because of the nature of my teeth. I understand this is a cosmetic surgery ,things could go wrong but I hate the fact that they are so irresponsiple to admit it.

17/02/08 5 5 5 5 I recently had porcelain veneers done on my front teeth by Dr. Chrakiw. The veneers look great, even the "temps" were great... looked completely natural. The staff are friendly and cooperative. Dr. Charkiw gave me an exact estimate with options to choose from right at the beginning, so there were no surprises. He took the time to examine my needs and make necessary suggestions. Although the office is very busy, and it might take months to get an appointment, but they do care about individual needs and try their best to accommodate your schedule. They called me within a week as soon as a time slot became available. I never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes, which is remarkable!
