16/09/13 4 3 3 4 I thought Bruce was a nice guy and competent dentist. I really felt there was a lot of up sell going on though. Guess you have to pay for the big buck office with new furnishings and TV's everywhere somehow...but not outa my pocket. Just give me a dentist without gimmicks in his office. Spend the dough on necessary dental equipment and charge me for what I need, not for the gimmicks you think I want.  Respond

01/06/13 2 5 4 3 I find the hygenists in this office to be so negative. The two with whom I've worked never smile and one was actually chewing out the dentist while I was being worked on. I would not recommend this office. Dr. Gardner has done multiple procedures on one tooth and my sensitivity and pain are actually getting worse. Ultimately, I think he will just root canal and crown the whole thing and I am starting to suspect he's just putting me through as many procedures as he can bill. When I started doubting the trustworthiness of the dentist, I can't go back.  Respond

11/07/11 5 3 1 1 I would NEVER NEVER NEVER go back to this dentist nor recommend him to another person. I actually paid another dentist $800 to fix dr. garner's mistake that he would not fix himself (and would have been covered). I was on a ton of pain meds for a long time and he did not seem to care. I actually had the pharmacist calling my home to see how I was doing because of all the meds.......but not the dentist who created the pain. He was great before but did not want to take responsibility for his mistakes. I was going to report him as well but just wanted the whole nightmare behind me. Find yourself s GOOD dentist with some compassion.......not Dr. Gardner  Respond

29/09/09 1 1 1 1 This doctor only wants your money. First met him 7 years ago. He said I needed a root canal - I insisted not have one and 7 years passed my tooth is still fine; He replaced dark fillings of my four molars with dark fillings, saying it'll look a lot better with white fillings(?????). Eventually I had to have another doctor in his office (doctor Modi) to replace them again with while fillings. Suffered a lot for this. Was thinking to report him but eventually didn't have the energy.  Respond

13/04/09 5 5 5 5 He's expensive, but the staff are great, the hygienists do an amazing job and Dr. Gardner always comes in smiling and is friendly. He removed all four of my impacted wisdom teeth and he did a fantastic job! I didn't have any problems healing or anything, he has a good technique!  Respond

12/03/09 5 4 3 3 I've been to a lot of Dentists over the years. Bruce is a good guy and very good Dentist. Unfortunately it seems all the toys in his office and other goodies don't pay for themselves. I find he does extra stuff when he knows you have insurance. Many Ontario Dentists do this but I found him really bad for this.  Respond

26/03/08 5 5 5 5 Bruce and his Team are AMAZING. Has been our family denstist for many years and we have a large family. My son and I have had dental surgeries and I would trust no one else but Bruce! I had a root canal by another dentist there and she finally got it completed after 3 visits and then the tooth broke the next day - insist on treatment by Bruce!  Respond

13/09/07 5 5 5 5 The dentists I went to in my youth were so aweful that it has now been over 20 years since I even had a checkup/cleaning. The best way to describe them was extremely painful. I recently broke a tooth and obviously had to get it fixed. I was in the process of moving to Burlington so I checked out this site and found Dr. Gardner the highest rated in town. I can honestly say that the good reviews posted here are not wrong. I have had 4 other visits since to help fix over 20 years of neglect. The biggest problem I had in my youth was not enough freezing and they would never give enough to stop the pain, well Dr. Gardner is very different. As long as it hurt, he didn't proceed until I was sufficiently frozen. Also having a good fear of drills, his use of nitrous is a BIG help to me. If you are looking for a new dentist, give his office a call. I highly recommend him.  Respond

13/03/07 5 5 5 Bruce and his team are awesome. On my first visit he took the time to provide me with a health questionaire. I'm glad he did, as I have a heart murmur he called my doctor right away to confirm my condition and he did not proceed with my appointment until I took the proper advance meds- something that my last dentist never bothered to provide any health questionaire. This office and dental practice is always up-to-date with latest state-of-the art technologies and techniques you know that part of your money is being used to improve his patients' dental health. Bruce and his hygenists have kept my smile whole and healthy now for 15 years. Thanks guys!  Respond

12/03/07 5 5 5 Dr. Bruce has been my dentist since before I had teeth. He has always made my trips to the dentist enjoyable, even when they were to have teeth removed. His great attitude and wonderful staff will ensure that, so long as he is in practice, he will always be my dentist.  Respond
