26/11/13 5 5 5 5 My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Houchmand for over 20 yrs. He is by far the best Dentist we have ever had. He is always professional, does excellent work, and shows sincere care in how we are feeling during our visits. Some time ago we moved 30 minutes further away from Burnaby, but still continue to see only Dr. Houchand for our dental work. DS  Respond

15/11/13 5 4 5 5 Dr. Houchmand is AMAZING! After searching for years for a dentist I was happy with, my in-laws recommended him and I'm so happy they did! I have had nothing but friendly and informative interactions with him. He replaced all of my silver on the right side, with no issues. He suggested a newer, less invasive mouth guard which is wonderful, and just this morning fixed a slight chip on my front tooth - free of charge! Carol was kind enough to squeeze me into his schedule, which was so appreciated! He lets you know what he's doing, as he's doing it so there is no wondering what the heck is going on in your mouth. I can't say enough good about them. I don't dread going to the dentist anymore. Highly recommended to anyone and everyone! He does GREAT work.

21/01/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Houchmand is an amazing dentist. I drive in from Mission to see him, and have recommended him to all my friends and family because of his great bedside manner and his extraordinary skills as a dentist. I am VERY fearful of needles and I have never once felt any pain or discomfort when his is administering anesthetic. He is respectful and communicates what he is doing. He's always smiling and happy but most of all I have no pain when I have dental work done and this is the most important thing to me. His staff is always helpful and efficient.  Respond

19/12/10 5 5 3 4 Dr Houchmand is a gentle dentist who is friendly. He attempted to fix my cavities but did not do a good job fixing one of my molar tooth that I believe had made a mistake on. - His incision was too deep, and this created a problem where a hole in which food can become trapped and lodged, as a result I need to be more careful when I eat now. At first when I consulted him regarding this, he blamed it on my tooth sensitivity and did not make any amends in my expectation whatsoever to remedy the situation.  Respond

01/11/06 5 5 5 Had a great root canal from Houman - top quality, painless and a real pro! Graduated at the top of his class at UBC Dental (I know because I attended UBC at the same time). Very personable guy; He and his brother have their own practice, well-located in Vancouver's North Burnaby suburb.  See Responses
