16/05/14 5 5 5 5 I found Dr. Chan's office through this website. I actually read all the reviews good and otherwise and was impressed with the general feel of his patients towards the office. My family of 5 live outside Calgary and have to travel a fair distance (45 minutes) to get to his office. There are many dental offices closer to our home and where I work, however having visited Dr. Chan's office many times now, I know I will always be going to see him as our dentist. Dr. Chan is kind and generous, his prices are fair IMO given his level of expertise. I have never been kept waiting and he always greats us with a smile and handshake. We actually were out one weekend at the Farmers Market and bumped into Dr. Chan and his wife and son. Even outside the office he was really nice, and introduced us to his whole family and chatted for awhile. I can tell he is sincere, and appreciate him greatly. Good job!  Respond

08/05/14 5 5 5 5 Becoming Dr. Chan's patient was the smartest decision I've made in a long time. His staff are warm, friendly and enthusiastic, and all say that they're thrilled to work there - it's clear that Dr. Chan respects and values his staff - which in my opinion, is a mark of a great practitioner. Dr. Chan personalizes the care of every patient, and makes sure all your needs are met and expectations are exceeded before you leave his office. His office boasts the latest dentistry technology, and he is committed to providing first-class care. His receptionists are well versed in benefits coverage, and make the payment process simple and painless. I am so glad to have found his office, and have recommended him to all of my friends and family. I'm looking forward to my next visit.  Respond

09/04/14 5 5 5 5 After reading positive reviews on this forum, I went to see Dr Chan to remove my upper wisdom teeth , and I am very glad I did. I could tell he is very experienced and knowledgeable; he responded to all my questions, provided his professional opinion, and let me choose. As for the surgery, it went very well; in fact, I could not tell exactly when my wisdom teeth were removed as I thought he was just testing the anesthetic. I'd like to say big thank you to Erin who assisted Dr. Chan. She is great, very attentive and friendly.  Respond

05/03/14 5 5 5 5 We have been patients at Dr. Chan's office for a couple years now. We found him through this website. We have very good insurance (Calgary Board of Education). In the whole time we've been patients he has never diagnosed anything other than yearly cleanings. One of our kids had a small cavity but Dr. Chan said the tooth was really loose anyway so no point to filling it as it would fall out within days, and it did. We are happy with the treatment at this office but agree the fees are a little high. Then again he has LOTS of staff and we never do any paperwork so I guess it's fair. Overall excellent office.  Respond

04/03/14 3 4 3 4 My rating is much higher than what my comments will reflect. Initially I was very happy with Dr. Chan's office and with him as a doctor. The fees seemed a bit high to me and to others when i mentioned what I was paying but I was still willing to continue as I wanted a good dentist. I still want a good dentist but after running through my 3/4 of my benefit plan in 2 months and with the way he treated my child at his/her visit I am ready to move. Dr. Chan did not seem like he liked children at all during the visit, he didn't seem like he understands them either. I would have preferred that rather then taking my money he referred us to a pediatric dentistry right away. We're not poor by any means but to be 2 months into a year and out of benefits is ridiculous. While I don't dispute the fact that Dr. Chan may very well be a great dentist, I get the distinct feeling that his office is a cash grab and I feel like a paycheque every time I walk in the door.  See Responses

21/02/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Chan is always great! Him and his Hygienists always remember me and are incredibly personable. He is always joking and making me laugh, but he is incredibly thorough and very aware of any situations that may make you uncomfortable! He is very concerned for my oral health and is always conscious of the decisions he makes and comments he makes. He is an awesome dentist and I definitely lucked out when I moved to Calgary and found him as my new dentist!!  Respond

16/02/14 5 5 5 5 Having had only negative experiences with dentists since I was a child, I was very nervous and scared when I went to see Dr. Chan for the first time over 16 years ago. Since then, Dr. Chan and his staff have been providing me and my whole family with first-class dental care. The front-end staff are friendly and knowledgeable (Trudy is awesome!) and I have never had to wait more than a few miutes in the waiting room. Dr. Chan and his hygienists and technicians are gentle and efficient. Dr. Chan is thoughtful and honest with his recommendations and he respects my opinions and feedback (I have provided LOTS over the years!). Honestly, if I did not have coverage through my employer I would not be able to afford dental services...from ANY provider! But I have learned that consistent dental care is more affordable than intermittent and extreme procedures. Achieving good dental health through efficient and gentle service, as Dr. Chan has provided to me and my family, is a bonus!  Respond

16/01/14 5 5 5 5 I have been a patient with Dr. Chan for about 12 years. There has never been a time where I felt in comfortable his staff have Allways been polite and helpful. I have had an issue with a filling (about 4 years ago) that seemed to be persistent but Dr. Chan would not let me live with it. He tried a couple different solutions and he made the problem go away -no charge-. I was referred to him by my sister and now I have referred about 4 patients who I know have nothing but good things to say about the experience while dealing with Dr.Chan! I have a business of my own and understand the importance of the customer experience. Dr.Chan clearly takes his business seriously. He appreciates his clients and takes the time to connect individually which is quite refreshing!! Big huge thank you to everyone at Dr Harker / Chan's office! :)  Respond

19/11/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Chan is an amazing doctor. I have been afraid of dentists nearly my whole life and have avoided going for a long time. Reading positive reviews for Dr. Chan after carefully scrutinizing all of the dentists in Calgary prompted me to call his practice. All of his staff are amazing - kind, friendly, patient and non-judgmental. The hygienists I have encountered have been exceptionally warm and caring, and treated me with compassion and understanding. Dr. Chan is a consummate professional and very skilled at his work, but is also friendly, engaging, and funny. Thanks to the very positive experiences I have had thus far (3 trips in total) I will be a lifelong patient. A+s all around for this truly exceptional team.  Respond

I have been going to this office for over 30 years (since I was 13) and I will continue going there until Dr. Glenn Chan retires. Dr. Glenn Chan has the ”3 P’s" in his office.

My appointments are always on time, and his staff and extremely friendly. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Chan. I would drive to Edmonton and back to see him (if that is where he was located) - he is worth the drive any day!  Respond

13/11/13 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Chan for almost 20 years. In that time he has always been a pleasant person to deal with. I have never had one complaint about him or the staff. All dental procedures have been preformed in a courtious and professional manner. His knowledge about Bruxism, and how it relates to sleep apnea has been a life saver. With a new dental appliance I have been sleeping better now than I have for years. I look forward to seeing Dr Chan provide exellent service for myself and my family in the future.

16/10/13 4 2 1 1 We took our 4 yo son to see Glenn Chan.We had two questions.Is there was anything to help stop our son from grinding his teeth and if there was a concern that his teeth were too close together?His response?"An x-ray will answer all your questions"?!I asked him if an x-ray would answer the two questions we had?He responds "no".I ask him what are the indications for giving a 4 yo an x-ray? He says to rule out cavities between his teeth.The hygienist said there were no cavities on her exam.So Glenn recommends our son to have x-rays just to see if he has any cavities when the hygienist stated there were no cavities?!When I told him that we would decline the x-rays, his response was "is it a cost issue"?!Glenn was unprofessional and did not practice standard dental guidelines.The x-rays would have exposed our son to unnecessary radiation.We will not be taking him back to this dentist and further consideration will be given to a formal compliant to the Alberta Dental Association and College.  Respond

06/10/13 5 5 5 5 Yesterday my son knocked his front adult tooth out of place. He was in pain and my husband and I were worried about the tooth as we couldn't push it back into place ourselves. On a Sunday afternoon, Dr. Chan met us at the office and fixed my son's tooth as well as put a retainer on for him. My nine year old felt relief from the pain of the displaced tooth and his smile looks "normal" again. My family and I have been patients at this dental office for over ten years. We will never go anywhere else. Dr. Chan is a kind and careful dentist. We are very grateful!  Respond

25/09/13 5 5 5 5 My father has been a patient of Dr. Chan's for many years and I finally decided to try him after moving back to Calgary. I found that Dr. Chan's office is very warm and inviting and the staff were also pleasant and friendly. At my cleaning appointment Dr. Chan took as much time as I needed and did not rush me. I found the prices to be slightly more expensive but they spent 2 hours with me on my cleaning. I had to return for a filling and I was surprised how quickly and painlessly it was finished. They take insurance too which is nice. All in all I am very happy an will bring my young son there as well. Thank you.

20/09/13 3 3 3 3 From my experience Dr. Chan is a good dentist as far as his treatment goes. Having said that, the prices at this office are unreasonable! I am not looking for a deal by any means, I believe in taking care of my teeth and overall health but I do not like to feel as if I have been ripped off. Went in to see Dr. Chan for a cleaning and a check up. My total bill came close to $800! My insurance covered only $500 of that as I was told that Dr. Chan's fees are much higher than the standard Alberta guidelines. I was diagnosed with needing two crowns on teeth with big fillings, total cost of that was close to $1700 for one tooth. INSANE! I will not be going back for the second crown as I have found a new Dentist who charges $1200 for the exact same procedure of crown. Also I was quoted for a cleaning and exam at my new office only $425 for exactly what I paid$800 for! Like I said ok work from this Dentist, but not worth paying so much more!!! Very expensive!  Respond

16/09/13 2 3 2 1 I went to this Dentist because of all the great reviews but I have to say I had a different experience. The cleaning I had was not very good. I still have stains on my teeth that are easily removable. Dr. Chan also didn't notice a very visible cavity that was starting on one of my back teeth. Very concerning. I was concerned with how sterile their equipment was and the fact that he didn't notice that cavity is a big warning bell. I would not go to this dentist again.  Respond

After visiting Dr. Chan for the first time, I found I needed three root canals and crowns. I was extremely nervous but since having this work completed, Dr. Chan and his team were beyond fantastic. They were all very caring, knowledgable and somehow made the whole experience actually enjoyable! The price he even quoted me came out a little less then what he initially thought it would be. Now my whole family wants to start going to him! It was by far the best dental experience I've ever had and I would recommend him to everyone who is looking for a new dentist.  Respond

My children are now experiencing dentistry in a completely positive way, and will not have the fear that I grew up with thanks to the staff at Harker, Chan and Associates.

02/05/13 5 5 5 5 I took my daughter to Dr. Chan after she complained of tooth pain. Dr. Chan took an x-ray and brought me into the room to show me the x-ray that clearly showed the wisdom teeth were pressing into the other teeth. He recommended that they be removed. Needless to say my daughter was very nervous about the experience, but at the time of the procedure he and his assistant, Erin made her feel very calm. My daughter was pleasantly surprised how easy and quick the appointment was. Dr. Chan and Erin were very informative on what to expect and the healing process was so much better than expected. I highly recommend Dr. Chan and his staff for any dental treatment, they are truly awesome, caring and informative!  Respond

30/04/13 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr.Chan, after not being to a dentist for some time, to get a cleaning done and see what could be done to fix my smile as my front teeth had small chips in them from an earlier accident and were uneven in length. After some discussion he suggested I have 4 crowns put in on my top front teeth (I had 2 crowns installed when I was younger to fill in a large gap between my front teeth which made my 2 front teeth quite large). By putting in 4 crowns in the front top instead of 2, my teeth would be more equally sized and I would obtain the "perfect smile". After some consideration I agreed that if I was going to be spending the money I might as well spend a little more and get a perfect smile. And the result was just that (so happy!!). Dr.Chan and associates were very professional and kept me well informed every step of the way, even sending me photos of the crowns before they were installed to make sure I was happy with them. I would highly recommend DR.Chan to anyone I know!!

Dr. Chan was kind, gentle and explained everything in detail from how dental insurance works to how he was going to do my filling.

31/03/13 4 2 1 1 Chose Dr Chan because reviews said he "doesn't recommend procedures that are unnecessary to make more money” Got a cleaning & clean bill of health. I decide to do whitening. They notice my 2 old fillings. Dr Chan said "we can change those to white for you." I say "really"  He says "yea we do it all the time." He changed the fillings, fast quick & painlessly. As I’m leaving I’m told to expect tenderness that’ll last 3-4 mon. Wish they'd mentioned this prior to doing it. Also wish they'd told me that unless it's necessary you shouldn't F with your teeth because any time you get anything done there’s a chance of infection. If I was told this I wouldn't have changed the fillings as there was no issue with them. Months later & teeth are still sensitive. Then I got horrible shooting tooth pain from one of the teeth that the fillings were replaced. He said I need a root canal & crown. The quote was $3400 all because Dr Chan didn't tell me the possible consequences of changing fillings.  Respond

25/12/12 5 5 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Glenn Chan for over 10 years. My entire family sees Glenn for dentistry and I have referred many patients to his office as well. I really like his common sense approach and also like that he is more conservative than other dentists. He doesn't seem to be concerned with upselling me and he is very popular so I am sure others have caught on to this fact. I think he is a really nice guy and his works is great. He has done fillings for my family and also removed my daughter's wisdom teeth which went well.

03/11/12 5 5 5 5 If you are looking for a dentist I would recommend Dr. Chan. My family of 5 have been going to Dr. Chan for over 10 years. All three of our children had their wisdom teeth removed painlessly and sedative free. Dr. Chan monitored the growth of their wisdom teeth and simply extracted them as they grew in. We all very much appreciated this level of dedication because we didn't have to incur absorbent costs related to oral surgery and sedation nor the anxiety that goes along with any surgical procedure. Rather than having his staff check on the patient after their wisdom were extracted; Dr. Chan personally called to check up, which shows the level of commitment he makes to his patients. Dr Chan has also done exceptional crown dentistry for our family; in particular our son's front tooth was chipped off in half and he repaired it and matched it perfectly.

They always remember details about me and seem genuinely interested about how I am doing. For example, they recently asked if I was getting excited about my upcoming trip. Dr. Chan is a fantastic dentist who is often very humorous and gentle, which is extremely beneficial in calming my nerves. I would recommend Dr. Chan and his office to all who are looking for a dentist or looking to make a change.  Respond

26/10/12 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr Glenn Chan for over 10 years. Recently I had a root canal done by Dr. Chan and also a tooth extraction. The thing I will comment about is that Dr. Chan is very gentle and efficient. He communicated all the issues to me and completed the root canal in one appointment without pain. He also removed the tooth for me the next day and I was surprised at how quickly it was taken out. I recommend Dr. Glenn Chan without hesitation.  Respond

25/10/12 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Chan for several years now, and have in fact brought my wife and kids to his practice as well. I have never liked dentists, and always had a fear of dental visits, even cleanings. Dr. Chan and his staff have gone a long way to making me comfortable about this important piece of my health care. For anyone who is nervous about the dentist, I would suggest a visit to this office - and also Dr. Chan's ability to freeze me without pain is nothing short of a miracle!! I can honestly say I've never been frozen so well. The dental hygienists in the office are very good too. Dr. Chan has always explained what is needed for proper care of my teeth very clearly, and always gives me options for treatment. I find the prices that he charges are competitive to other dentists I have seen in the past also.  Respond

23/10/12 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr.Chan as my Dentist for 10 years. His staff is always so kind and helpful to me and my Family. I have not had cavities in along time and I had to get 2 fillings done the other day. Dr.Chan was on time, which I really value in this busy day to day life. I always get really nervous before I get freezing. Not only did I not feel anything , but he is always checking on me to make sure I am doing alright. Dr.Chan and his assistants move things along, which is great when I am done. Thanks Dr.Chan  Respond

16/10/12 5 5 5 5 I have been going to Dr. Chan for almost a year now. I find he is always taking the time to answer every question I have about my mouth, he never rushes. He also always checks to see how you as well as your spouse/family are, and what you have been up to. Dr. Chan really seems to care about his patients and doesn't consider them a number like most offices you visit. His staff are all very nice, and I find his hygienists are very gentle (which I'm not used to seeing). He also does wisdom teeth extractions, and is super fast and efficient with them! Overall very pleased with this office.  Respond

21/06/12 4 5 4 5 I have been a patient of Dr. chan for over 15 years. Two years ago I broke an old crown on a front tooth and Dr Chan quickly got me in to prepare for the new crown. We later discovered that when the old crown broke the root also fractured so there was nothing we could do but get an implant. I was referred to a very got oral surgeon to remove the root and do a bone graph. After the healing period the implant was installed and then the crown was prepared. The lab that was used was terrific at matching the color so that you cannot tell that this is not my natural tooth. I would recommend Dr. Chan and his staff to anyone.  Respond

03/05/12 5 5 5 5 On visiting Doctor Chan I was greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. The premises is top quality as is the level of care provided by Doctor Chan and his associates. I recently had two wisdom teeth removed and Doctor Chan addressed all of my concerns before the procedure. I was not looking forward to the procedure at all but I must say that I was very impressed with Doctor Chan and the procedure was a complete success. I did not feel any pain throughout the procedure and I would have no problem in recommending Dr. Chan to anyone looking for a superb Dentist.

Their detailed explainations about each step they are taking to improve my dental health has been important to the ongoing care and maintenance of my teeth, gums and overall health.

Dr. Chan and his staff go above and beyond to confirm appointments and to follow-up to make sure that I am comfortable after procedures.

17/11/11 5 5 5 5 I've been a patient of Dr. Chan's for two years. He recently came to my rescue after I severely damaged my top front tooth in a cycling accident. He made a point to see me at 9:00 p.m. (!) the day of my accident. I felt so lucky to have a dentist who was genuintely concerned with my well being (AND wanted to try to save my tooth by treating it ASAP). Through the course of my recovery and treatment, Dr. Chan thoroughly explained my options. His Assistant Haley (who is great!) reviewed the costs of each option so that there would be no financial surprises. I always felt very informed, and never pressured to select the most extensive treatment plan. I also appreciated Dr. Chan's honest opinion of what he would do 'if it happened to him'. I just had my final appointment and am thrilled with the results! (On a side note for anyone who hates going to the dentist, I find that Dr. Chan works quite efficiently and quickly in your mouth, so it's over before you know it.)  Respond

28/06/11 5 5 5 5 My family always dreaded going to the dentist until we starting going to Dr. Chan's office 6 years ago. The staff and him are very friendly, knowledgeable and always make our visits entertaining. Dr. Chan is very up front about any work that you need or may not need. He will provide you with a couple of option depending on what work is required, which is also nice considering some produces can be quite expensive .They do directing billing to our insurance company which we find this to be very convenience and hassle free.  Respond

24/05/11 5 5 5 5 We began seeing Dr. Chan in 1997, and have always had great work done with excellent understanding of our choices prior to starting. When my kids started going to him, one was in grade 2, and one in kindergarden, they have never had any reason to be scared of the dentist. As a parent it is very important to be able to have that kind of person working on your children!  Respond

04/02/11 5 5 5 5 I forgot to mention that the expensive work I had done was not pushed on me. Glenn gave alternatives, he was very up front and honest about the work I needed and the services they could provide. Glenn has never pushed me into doing more, in fact he has advised against things that he thought were unnecessary. It doesn't hurt that he is cute - but that alone would not make me go back. The staff is great, everyone is professional and friendly.

Dr. Chan himself is very accomodating although I can tell he is popular because he is very busy. Still, he spent a lot of time with me discussing my needs and I found that his assistants were equally patient and understanding. This is a very good office with very good staff.

16/09/07 5 5 5 5 In the past year, I had to have a root canal and a tooth removed. While I've been a patient in this practice for many years, this is the first time I've had to receive "real dentistry" and as a result I was pretty nervous. I opted to have both procedures done on the same day. They actually seated me early, got me comfortable, and completed the procedure quickly without rushing. His assistant is VERY smart and spent a lot of time with me going over details prior to and following my appointment. I would not hesitate to recommend the office. Dentistry is expensive these days so it's nice to know that I will receive awesome treatment each and every time I return. Thank you! Sincerely, Kevin.  Respond
