Ratings for Dr. Terence Vankka
Had 4 wisedom teeth removed and overall I'm pretty unimpressed with the way this place is run. Dr. Vankka was very nice and friendly, but his staff are awful. Receptionists are so rude it's unbelievable. Nurses were fine. I was told I should come in a week after surgery for a follow up and now I'm being told I don't need to. Maybe it's just me but seems pretty weird to not be checked after getting surgery done? Everybody else I know has had a follow up. Aftercare instructions were NOT clear at all. I still have four big holes two weeks after the fact which seems weird that he wouldn't stitch them up (all the teeth were still in the bone) but guess I'll have to just cross my fingers and hope it's fine...
My son just had 4 wisdom teeth extracted by Dr Vankka. One was more complicated due to the tooth having extra roots that went off in random directions. Dr T Vankka was good at explaining the procedure in advance and his friendly manner made my son feel at ease. He's also obviously highly skilled as since the extractions (3 days ago) my son's had no pain, bleeding occured only on the evening of the day of the extractions - none since - and he has had only slight swelling, no bruising. We recommend Dr Vankka 100%.
I had 4 impacted wisdom teeth pulled 6 days ago at the GP location. Dr. Vankka went above and beyond to properly explain my TMJ issues that a previous "specialist" had tried to tell me. I was pretty nervous as my jaw would not open very far and He took extra care and made sure I was comfortable with the procedure and that I understood my own problems before going in. The surgery was fast and all the staff were excellent while I was recovering. He made sure he told me how the surgery went and gave me a direction to head in with dealing with my jaw. I am still experiencing a bit of jaw pain but in respect to my situation, I expected a bit of extended discomfort. When I showed up my bill was $450 less than originally quoted which was also a pleasant surprise. Thank you Kingsway and Dr. Vankaa for a great dental experience!
Just had 4 wisdom teeth pulled yesterday and so far, very pleased with the results. I virtually have no bruising and very minimal swelling. Dr. Vankka was really kind, informative and made sure I was completely at ease with how my surgery would be conducted. After the surgery was completed (during the talk with the recovery nurse), he came by to let me and his other patient know how our surgeries went and asked how we were doing, which I think made the overall experience a lot better. Definitely recommend this surgeon!
Excellence surgery experience today...(maybe the medications hasn't worn off). Dr. Vankka was very kind, and took lots of time to carefully explain my surgery, as well as answer any questions that I had. His team of nurses were so kind to me, and made sure I was comfortable at all times.
Dr. Vankka removed all 4 of my deeply impacted wisdom teeth a few years ago. I was terrified about the procedure (I have a severe fear of dentists/dental work) and he allayed my concerns quickly and had me feeling at ease. His nursing staff are all very caring and helpful as well, and I can honestly say that I had a wonderful experience. By far the best doctor I've ever seen in my life. He's a genius with a scalpel as well - I had no bruising, no pain, no complications and no trouble whatsoever with my recovery. I so very highly recommend him!
had 30 teeth extractions with dentures put in. top dentures wouldn't come out. had to be removed with freezing a week later to discover a hole the size of a quarter on the roof of my mouth due to the freezing being administered too quickly causing tissue death. wen i called to explain I was not instructed on how to care for or deal with this. i was not referred to a doctor and the situation was minimized. my concerns were not taken serious. 3 weeks later I still can not swallow or put dentures in. still the hole in my mouth has not been addressed properly and is causing me to have problems eating and talking. my over health has deteriorated. I have lost 20 lbs. I am under 50 and am very healthy. this experience that I paid so much for is not something I would wish on my worst enemy! it has been horrible. and is still ongoing!
