Ratings for Dr. Bruce Yaholnitsky
very difficult to schedule appointments with, no hygene appointments on fridays, nasty letters when i had difficulty rescheduling, the hygenist that i saw most often was very nice and thorogh but another hygenist in the office was very rude, probably the same one mentioned in another review that did the same thing to me - glaring with arms crossed and shaking head. she even dissed me when she asked what kind of toothpaste i use . the theme of putting down other dentists and hygenists work is pretty consistebnt with other reviews . the times i did actually see the doctor i had to wait a long time in the chair. to get berated agian. front counter staff often berated me when trying to schedule saying they are so busy and booked up that i was lucky to get appointments at all. not a good experience
He required that I come every 3 months for a cleaning. I had asked his dental hygienist if it would be possible to do alternate cleanings with my regular dentist to save some money. She said no. Fair enough. Next appointment I was told Dr. Y would be in after my cleaning to provide options. I wasn't sure what that meant. Dr Y. came in and told me I needed to come every 3 months for cleaning, and that I could not go back to my dentist for this (then proceeded to bash the hygenist from my dentist office). When I expressed my concern about the finances (I was facing layoffs at work), I was told to 'decide what your priorities are' and then he stomped away (while his hygienist stood there, glaring at me) I decided he was right, so my first priority was to find a new periodontist. Never been happier.
I've started the unfortunate process of getting a tooth implant and was sent to Dr. Yaholnitsky by my regular dentist. He managed the tooth extraction and helped me get an infection healed that I had not known about previously. He did everything he said he was going to do in the way he said he was going to do it. His staff has been excellent and while dental work is never a pleasant experience, the entire office did everything they could to ensure that I was comfortable, that my pain was minimized and that I left the office with all of the information required for my aftercare. Follow up appointments have also been great. Overall, I'm as happy as I can be with having a tooth removed
I have been to see Bruce on a number of occasions and have always had the best experience of any dentist I've been to. I do go in with a positive outlook and that goes a long way. Having dealt with difficult customers myself. I know how unbalancing that can be. A dentist visit is never going to be a wonderful experience so one sort of has to make the best of it. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
I had an absolutely awful experience. I have an extreme phobia of needles, and he was very impatient as I was getting mine. I wasn't allowed to move at all and he was very rude about the anxiety I had. After flinching, he stood up and left without completing the procedure. He then proceeded to say very rude things. Overall, I am very unhappy with this experience and I would not recommend him.
When I mentioned that I had some serious concerns about my appointment today the staff there was no concern given - all I got was "you're really messing up our day" so inspite of my concerns (because I didn't want to mess up their day) I went for my appointment only to get a big dose of "primadonna" attitude from "Doctor" Yaholnitsky. He told me that "we can cancel your appointment for today but you will have to find a new dentist". Is that how a dentist should treat a patient that expresses concerns about having a front tooth removed and a hole drilled into their skull and a titanium post inserted???? The only saving grace is that this jerk's true colours came out BEFORE he pulled my tooth so I dont have to endure his 'better than everyone' attitude any longer. Stay far away from this office unless you want to be strong armed into treatment and spoken down to.
I had the bone removed below all four of my eye teeth by Dr. Yaholnitsky. He was unprofessional, impatient as it took longer than he thought, he didn't freeze me enough and the pain was excruciating. There was no after care, not even a pain killer to help with the 3 hour ride home. Would not recommend him to anyone.
I recently had a gum transplant performed by Dr. Yahlonitsky and after the initial consultation felt very comfortable with him. His knowledge and honesty about the procedure were very helpful. His aftercare is amazing and his staff are excellent. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
I had Dental Implants done by Dr. Bruce Yaholnitsky and had complete confidence in him. He did a wonderful job and I am pleased with the results. The staff are very professional and personable. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Yaholnitsky to others.
