26/11/13 5 4 5 5 My son is autistic, we've been to several dental offices - Dr. Westman was very patient with him, he charged current dental fees which my insurance company pays 100%. The staff was wonderful.  Respond

14/02/13 2 4 2 3 We have a 4 yr old who had a bad experience at a previous dentist. We were hoping Dr. Westman would help him get over this experience, but no. Dr. Westman is likely knowledgeable but does not have the bedside manner and warmth that I would expect to make a younger patient comfortable. He barely had my son in his chair for 5 minutes when he decided that he'd be going to the hospital. There was no warmth or attempt to help him feel comfortable before placing the gas mask on. I would only suggest this dentist for patients who are pre-teen or older. Plus, I was hoping that there would be some entertainment (TV, video game etc.) for him, but instead there was an old space mobile. The office needs to be updated, the equipment is also outdated and in general this is not a place for little kids despite what the small playroom suggests.  Respond

17/12/12 4 5 4 5 Quiet,caring paediatric dentist. Does excellent work. Not willing to coax my child through the procedure, though, cancelled the appointment and then insisted on in-hospital completion of work. Office staff are polite and professional, but not at all willing to flex on their policy. This was not helpful when dealing with ex-spouse's refusal to forward insurance payments or otherwise reimburse me; since the office staff and/or Dr. Westman were unwilling to do direct billing for in-office procedures, it was not possible to have any return visits.

10/02/12 5 5 5 5 Dr.Westman and his staff are wonderful! I recommend this dentist to anyone with children. The hygienist took her time to explain different dental procedures and put myself and son at ease. It seems he treats his staff and patients with respect. I will continue to bring my children there for as long as possible, and will recommend Dr.Westman to everyone. He is Fabulous!!

22/09/11 5 5 5 5 I would recommend Dr Westman to anybody looking for a great children's dentist. They understand that children can be scared and they make them feel relaxed. All the staff are very helpful and with great all around service. My children don't mind going to the dentist now, not like before at other places. Thank you for your kindness. I am so glad I was recommended to you. Keep up the great work.  Respond

29/03/10 5 5 5 5 I personally have had several dentists over the years with countless problems and issues so needless to say when searching for someone to take care of my 4 children I was extremely cautious in doing so. After approximately 10 years of ongoing service from Dr. Westman and his staff it is safe to say I am totally pleased with every aspect of his business and every level of service that he provides. I could go on for pages describing in depth the amount of care he has given and taken with each and every one of my children. His manner is always very soothing to the children, never excitement only reassurance in his voice as he proceeds through each and every step. My children always leave pleased and unshaken from his work and so do I. If only "all" Doctors, Dentists had the care and compassion that Dr. Gregory Westman has it would leave a whole new definition to Doctor/Patient care. You and your staff are simply the best...keep up the amazing work!!!  Respond

26/01/09 5 3 5 5 Great doctor and staff! I had a dental emergency with my son and was in the ER, the hospital called the dentist office to ask if we could pop in, and Dr. Westman was the only one there, about a 1/2 hour after closing, and stayed to wait for us to drive 20 mins to his office to see him.  Respond

17/07/07 5 5 5 5 Great dentist. Was referred to him for my daughter for dental surgery and I ended up transfering her file to him and never looked back at the other dentist. Calm caring manner and always answers any questions I have. He has a wonderful staff!! Definately recommend him to anyone.  Respond

31/01/07 5 5 5 I have gone there for years. When I was on social assistance my dental card was accepted as any other form of payment was. My children have always been treated with the utmost respect. Now that I have dental insurance I am more than happy to give my business to him. My youngest is now 19 so will soon leave Dr. Westman, too bad. There are very few dentists like him. I need a dentist for myself and if I could find one like him it would be great...I have referred many clients to him and his staff. Always courteous, always respectful and lovely waiting area.  Respond

18/01/07 5 5 5 Dr. Westman is an amazing dentist!!!!! He explains everything to the child, he even let me go in and sit at my sons feet during the procedure. My son has had two dental accidents, and needed major work. He not only made it easy on my son, but on mom too! Were so lucky to have him!!!! Keep up the great work Dr. Westman!!!  Respond

15/01/07 5 5 5 A wonderful compassionate doctor who cares about the child and not only their dental needs. He makes them feel safe, secure and explains every procedure. He is amazing, and what a Pediatric Dentist should be.  Respond

14/01/07 5 5 5 Excellent Pediatric Dentist! He's very good at putting children's fears to rest - in my daughter's case, anyway. He explains what he is doing so that the child feels more at easy. In my daughter's experience, he has been very patient. The staff are very friendly and most helpful. The only difficulty would be to say that because he is so busy, follow up appointments are usually a few months down the road. He books up quickly, and there is a valid reason for that. Thank you Dr. Westman!  Respond
