I had a terrible toothache on a Friday night. I called the clinic emergency number on Late afternoon on Saturday and heard back from Dr Dodds that evening. He was willing to go into the clinic on Sunday to examine me. It was a complicated issue which took nearly a week to resolve but throughout the experience, Dr Dodds was compassionate, knowledgeable, and willing to discuss options for treatment. I am now pain-free with my tooth intact. What a wonderful dentist!

The staff and Dr. Dodds were wonderful with my entire family. Very knowledgeable. I had a lot of anxiety going into the appointments but it all melted away. Everyone at Downtown Dental is very knowledgeable, professional and kind. I'm so glad I came in and look forward to the next appointments.

Like many, I have terrible anxiety about the dentist and neglected going for years. I ended up needing 2 root canals. The staff and Dr.Dodds took all my concerns seriously. At the first sign of discomfort, they would give me more anaesthetic (I'm hard to freeze) if needed, or adjust what they were doing. Can't say enough good things about this clinic. Also, the receptionists make you feel at home, addressing you by name and remembering little details.

I also have had horrible dental experiences in the past causing severe anxiety towards any dentist. My anxiety has not disappeared after seeing Dr. Dodds. I was in pain throughout my dental work, and didn't feel that my limitations to comfortably endure the process were respected, or that he was compassionate to the difficulty I experienced. I will not be returning. Aside from that, everyone I dealt with at the office was fantastic.

I apologize for the discomfort you must have experienced. While dental care is rarely pain-free, we aim to make it as comfortable as possible, and are sorry this was not your experience with us.

I have had horrible dental experiences in the past causing severe anxiety towards any dentist. This anxiety has disappeared after only two visits to dr. Dodds. The team at the office are very polite and professional and made me feel very welcomed. Dr. Dodds explained everything to me before and during my procedures. The root canal was virtually painless as it should be!! Thank you to everyone at the downtown dental centre!!

As always, the appointment started on time, if not earlier than arranged. The staff is very friendly and kind and do everything to put me at ease from start to finish. Each process is talked about throughout the appointment, letting me know what is coming next. Over the years, I've found it extremely stressful to have dental work - that isn't true anymore. I can't say I now look forward to my appointments but they are much easier to go to and the quality of work has been excellent. Thank you, Dr. Dodds and staff for everything. It's so appreciated by a very grateful patient.

Not my usual doctor and would never see him again. He said hello and told me to tell him if I experienced any pain. Then started digging deep into my teeth. Hauled off on my molars several times. No pain from me but was very concerned he was damaging my enamel with how aggressive he was. When he got his hands out of my mouth he informed me I needed a filling and that I could book one at the front. I said really?!?!? But I have no pain. He told me if I had pain I would need a root canal...really?!? I asked what was involved he looked at me like I wasn't very bright. So I said well I've never had a cavity....he then rushed through the highlights. Not impressed. I've been going to this office for two years and I will never be back. Came on here asI thought he must have bad reviews because I left his office feeling like he was creating issues where there weren't any. So unimpressed will never go to this office again. Apologies to my regular dentist.

We're sorry your insurance did not cover a panoramic x-ray. It is generally taken every 3-5 years and shows your entire mouth in one picture, including your sinuses, and upper and lower jaw, and provides a baseline for the overall health of your mouth. Insurance is meant to help cover the costs of health care but does not necessarily cover all costs related to best health practices.

He was very helpful. He didn't just point out all of my bad habits. He showed me my x-rays and told me exactly what he was going to do. Which does set your mind at ease,until the sound of the tools start ;-)
