31/03/14 5 5 5 5 We've been seeing Dr. Kamelchuk for many years... the kids are now 17 and 19 and the younger one is getting his braces off in a month. The staff has always been fantastic and Dr. Kamelchuk is awesome with the kids... a great sense of humour, knowledgeable... took his time with the kids to make sure everything was done right. Sure we had to wait once in a while, but we were sometimes the cause of others having to wait (last minute visit for a loose bracket for example). I'd recommend him without question!  Respond

01/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kamelchuk did a brilliant job on my teeth. Dr. Kamelchuk is a very positive person, and he kept with it as long as necessary to get the desired outcome, for which I am very grateful. Dr. Kamelchuk and his staff are very knowledgeable, helpful, and everyone seemed to have unlimited patience, all of which made this a great experience for me. The clinic is nicely laid out with all of the latest in technology, yet it has a really positive and upbeat atmosphere to it. I think that this is as professional an outfit as it gets.  Respond

13/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kamelchuk treated both my kids. The final results were outstanding. Front end staff are exceptional as well as the clinical ladies provided extra special care at each and every appointment. We would highly recommend Dr. Kamelchuk for your orthodontic care. Dr. Kamelchuk saw our kids at every appointment to make his assessment, then left them in the care of his assistants to complete the appointment. The environment of the office is very welcoming and Dr. Kamelchuk is extremely knowledgeable in this field. When selecting an ortho, as a parent, you need to do your homework and ensure you are at the right office of a "certified orthodontist," Dr. Kamelchuk receives top marks from our family!! Thank you for the welcoming experience we had at your office.  Respond

05/01/12 5 5 5 5 My son just completed 30 months of treatment with Dr. Kamelchuk & my daughter is just starting what will likely be 5+ years. I have nothing but positives to say about the doctor and his staff. We 'shopped around' for an orthodontist, seeing 3 of the Top 5 listed. We chose based on treatment plans and predicted outcomes, not price. I am really happy with our decision, my son's teeth look fantastic and my daughter has treatment options not available to her elsewhere. Dr. Kamelchuk's office is very forward thinking, offering new approaches as well as the old standards. We like this. The atmosphere is always positive, the doctor has been involved in every visit, and we never felt rushed despite how busy they are. My daughter has anxiety issues making ortho treatment a challenge. The team here seem to have unlimited amount of patience for my daughter and spend considerable time making sure she is feeling OK. If we where elsewhere, I am not convinced treatment could move forward.  Respond

02/08/11 5 3 5 5 I LOVE Dr. Kamelchuk. He's always in great spirits and is very compassionate when the kids feel ill at ease. He even made a joke when my daughter was chomping down on his finger. His entire staff is friendly and cheerful. Would totally recommend. He's pricey, but you get what you pay for!!  Respond

27/06/11 4 3 5 5 This orthodontist is very good with kids. Tries to put them at ease by joking and teasing them. He also takes time to answer questions from the kids and explains the treatment process to the parents.

10/03/11 5 5 5 5 Both Dr Kamelchuk and his staff are highly educated and skilled (check out his credentials on the webpage!). Any questions are answered thoroughly and quickly, both in office and over the phone. Dr Kamelchuk is professional yet approachable. The staff have never been discourteous or unprofessional, and the office attitude is fun and light - it seems he's a good doctor to work for, too.  Respond

11/03/09 5 5 5 5 He and his staff were extremely friendly, cheery and efficient. I have never had such a great experience at a dentist/ortho clinic ever! He did some of my work pro bono as my previous ortho refused to transfer the funds with me when I moved. Wonderful people!!!  Respond

11/02/09 5 5 5 5 Dr Kamelchuk rocks! He's my 2nd ortho, the 1st one messed up and I had to get braces again to correct what the other guy did. Dr. Kamelchuk is very friendly- one adjustment ended up making me cry because it hurt so badly (couldn't be avoided), and he and his assistant handled the situation superbly. They had me laughing through tears in just a few seconds. When I had to fast-track treatment to get my braces off in time for my wedding, he and his staff were incredible. They all remembered my name and asked how planning for the wedding was going! Once I have enough money saved, I'm going back to resume treatment and have braces put back on- the staff have even called a couple times to check on me and make sure my retainer is still fitting. How's that for attentive care??  Respond

21/06/07 5 5 5 As a +50's patient with unique problems, Dr. Kamelchuk has been a pleasure to deal with. I never waited for scheduled appt and was repeatedly amazed at how he was able to adjust his tone, knowledge level and degree of seriopusness in a moment to deal with young kids, teens and much older patients like myself. His ability to speak to me in laymans's terms to ensure my understanding was a very valuable trait for me. He elicited my trust early on and at no time through my treatment did I every feel that I didn't undertand why something was being done. Lorne has a wonderful staff who emulate all the traits mentioned above and who seem to value each patient as a unique individual. I would highly, highly recommend this practice for a patient of any age.

20/03/07 4 5 5 Dr. Kamelchuk is very personable and kind. His humor is infectious and immediatley puts kids at ease. He is more than willing to work with you and respects your input and yet you know that he is wanting the best for your smile. Our 3 out of 4 family members have looked to him for his expertise, and have never been disappointed. We have been seeing him for 4 years now, two sets of braces! We are still smiling.  Respond
