Ratings for Dr. Leonard Terk
The dentist at Dr terk was not good , he kept dropping tools in my mouth and cut my lip, I didn't notice it was bad cause of the freezing. He is the Asian dentist working there don't see him I should have told dr terk but I didn't notice till I got home and didn't bother going back but im going back soon then I will .
I went there as it is near my place and as a busy mom it matters. Each time there were complications with the work was done. Front desk staffs are too pushy to give you a cleaning appointment to charge lasy penny out of your insurance. It is just bussines for them.
I have been going to Dr Terk for about ten years. I love everything about the office. The staff is professional, polite and knowledgeable. I have never been pushed into unecessary work like I have at other offices. I moved away and I still travel a long way just to stay with the same dentist.
Dr. Terk has been my dentist for 35 yr and my husband's for 20 yr. I'd say the negative reviewers here must be in denial about what can happen if you neglect regular checkups, or delay returning for part 2 of a multi-part procedure. Dr. Terk is a highly skilled professional, very calming and caring with great staff - many have been there for decades. He is honest: if he can't do the work (eg. roots too twisted) he refers me elsewhere; when asked about discolouration and a vertical 'line' , he said it was just cosmetic (a 'cash-grabber' would say oh yes it must be fixed). I did have cosmetic work completed this week and it looks terrific - my friends said I have a 'movie star smile'. Nobody likes going to the dentist, but just do it - don't put it off! Go see him.
I have Dr. Terk to be one of the best dentists in the city of Toronto. I have been seeing him for over 25 years and my son has seen him since he has been born. I have received nothing but professionalism from him and his staff. His equipment is the latest available. I have been to other dentists who have rorally bot hed up my teeth and my mouth and he has fixed all of my problems the first time around with no difficulties. Everyone I have referred to him has been totally satisfied with him and his work.
Dr.Terk did a filling, it didn't last. Went back a couple time, ended up with a root canal then lost the tooth. Costed me over 5 grand to get this fixed by another dentist and more than nine months to complete the whole ordeal. Won't be going back again as I can't afford to pay for their mistake. I have had another dentist asked me who did the work and I said it was dr.Terk who you work with and he couldn't have a say about it. I could see in his face that it was done wrong. After reviewing this forum, I guess I wasn't the only one.
Terk is the most terrible dentist I have ever had. I don't even know if he should be called a dentist. I went to see him several years ago for tooth pain for which he did fillings. The fillings came out, he drilled some more and re-filled my teeth. Those fillings came out again and then the problems turned into root canals. I am young and have a number of root canals thanks to his handiwork. I have spent ridiculous amounts of money trying to fix the problems he exacerbated in my mouth and I would urge anyone considering visiting Terk to re-consider. There are many gifted dentists in Toronto and Terk is most certainly not one of them.
I'm surprised reading some of the negative comments below? I've been going to Dr Terk for 10 yrs and have nothing but great experiences. In fact the veneers and crowns he did for me 8 years ago on my front teeth, STILL have random people commenting on my teeth. I happily refer them to Dr Terk. Cleanings and other appointments are amazingly on time and detailed. price is completely in the ballpark vs other dentists. it's funny to read below that some people say 'he does too much' to get your money. other say 'he does too little' hoping teeth will get worse, to make more money. sounds like a bunch of complainers. Based on my years and years of going to him - 2 thumbs up!
