Ratings for Dr. Philip Walton
I was experiencing receding gums on my front canines. Phil took a look and suggested gum grafts. I had gum graft surgery done in a different area of my mouth 20 years ago and wasn’t looking forward to going through that again. Phil told me that the procedure had improved since then. He was right. The surgery was way more comfortable and faster than my previous experience. The aftercare and healing process went much better, too. Phil led the process through diagnosis, surgery, and aftercare follow ups. He was great at his work, and made sure that I was comfortable, knew what was happening, and that I knew how to take care of myself for the best results. I am super happy with the outcome. If I ever need work like this again, Phil will be my first call. As I told him after the final follow up appointment, this was “the best gum graft experience of my life.”
I had a gum grafting done by Dr. Walton. I was very nervous about having it done and put it off for over a year. My experience with Dr. Walton was really great! It was all so much easier than I thought it would be. He explained each step during the procedure and gave clear instructions for quick healing. He was available by email to answer any questions during healing. Very little pain after day 1. I had a graft done on each side of my lower gums at once. The healing was a little hard for the first couple days but everything went smoothly. I did have some swelling and a little bruising but it was not painful and healed quickly. I regret putting off the procedure for so long. Will not hesitate to go back to Dr. Walton in the future and highly recommend him to anyone needing a gun graft.
I have had gum grafting done twice in the past three months. I was not impressed that I needed it done, however I can truly say that both experiences were GREAT. Dr.Walton is truly amazing at what he does. His care and attention to the procedure was complete perfection and professional. He truly has " Magic Hands". From the moment I went for my first consultation @ Queen Street Dental he put me at ease. He advised me on what was being done to every little detail and why it is so important for my overall dental health. The healing process afterwards went quite smooth. No complications whatsoever and I had very little pain if any. I would totally recommend anyone needing gum grafting to go to him. His professionalism, bedside manner and wonderful personality made the procedures all the more easier, as well he was completely accessible in case of an emergency. No one really likes the going to he dentist to see us at our worst, orally that is, however with a Dental Surgeon like Dr. Walton you do not have to worry. Thank you very much for the great care and treatment I received from you and your team. It was a very positive experience and I truly recommend to anyone who is in need of gum grafting to reach out to Dr.Walton. You will not be disappointed.
When I first found out I needed a gum graft I was terrified. After googling it, I thought it would be a very painful procedure with an uncomfortable recovery. In fact - I waited 3 years to do it. I can't believe I waited as my experience was not at all what I expected. The procedure took approximately half an hour and I had no pain or discomfort! I hardly even felt the needle for freezing. Dr Walton's testimonials on Rate MD helped me to decide to get the gum graft done (and put me at ease). His 5 star reviews speak for themselves. Dr Walton and his staff are kind and professional. When I went for my initial consultation Dr Walton put me at ease when explaining the procedure. During the procedure Dr Walton and his staff made sure I was calm and comfortable. They were also very patient with my anxiety! Dr Walton provided his email and cell in case I had any questions or concerns after I got home and followed up to make sure all was well. I have had no problems post surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Walton and his staff. I saw him at Avenue Dental. Thank you Dr. Walton!
i hope people actually get a chance to read my review as it seems dr walton has so many strong testimonials that they continue to move there way further down the page. i actually work for an e-marketing company and have a very good idea about how rating sites like this actually work. i made a point of visiting several of the "top" periodontists from ratemds to perform my due diligence. not only was it apparent when looking at the number and type of reviews that many had been falsified/paid to be posted - this was totally confirmed upon visiting most of these individuals. if you actually read dr waltons reviews youll notice the length, the stories, the sense of genuineness... this was all exactly what you get when you meet him. beyond his bed side manner and professional demeanor he actually did what every other surgeon wasn't possible - he removed my tooth, placed the implant and tooth in the same day. if anyone is in a similar situation and requiring this treatment - dont just go where your dentist tells you (ie his golfing buddy) - you must consider seeing dr walton for an opinion!
Dr. Walton is an exceptional, knowledgeable and experienced Dentist that we (myself and my mom) highly recommend to everyone. He did my Mom's 6 implants in one day without any complications or discomfort. He also performed my gum surgery without any pain or distress. We both felt totally at ease and comfortable during and after the procedure. The healing process was fast and without any surprises!!! He creates a trusting relationship with his patients by listening attentively to their concerns and provides a symmetrical decision making process where his patients are able to take an active role in their own treatment plan . His bed side manner is excellent. He explains every procedure in a simple and comprehensive language and respond to questions in details. Throughout the procedure he ensures that his patients are pain free and aware of what is happening. Even after the procedure is completed he makes sure to follow up by email to find out how they are holding up and if they have any questions. Dr. Walton cares deeply for his patients and you know that you are in good hands . He makes visiting the dentist an enjoyable experience and we really are grateful for that.
Dr. Walton is fantastic! I was nervous about getting my gum grafts, but through every part of the operation he told me exactly what would happen. He was very approachable and clearly answered all of my questions--no matter how minor. When I had a post-operation question on the weekend, I sent him a text and he quickly responded. Getting several gum grafts at once isn't fun, but it's much more tolerable knowing you're in the hands of a knowledgeable and talented professional. In the future, if I ever need any more gum work, Dr. Walton is the only person I'll trust to do the work.
Dr. Walton recently performed a gum graft on me. At our initial meeting I was very nervous about the procedure, to the point I felt faint when it was explained to me. Needless to say, I was nervous about the whole thing. Dr. Walton went out of his way to help me understand the reality of the procedure and to ensure I was comfortable and at ease. When it came to the day of my surgery I was literally shocked at how quick and painless everything was. Other than a couple of needles which really caused no discomfort, the procedure was quick and easy and I literally did not feel a thing. Dr. Walton made sure I knew all the details about the surgery, recovery, and everything in between. I followed the recovery instructions in detail and was back in action in no time. If I ever need another gum graft I really have no concerns now that I know it's really not a big deal. Other than a few days after to heal, the actual surgery was as easy as a normal filling.
In consultation with Dr. Walton and Dr. Aleinikov it was determined that the best outcome for my situation was to remove all my upper teeth and install four implants. The procedure was really quite fast and painless. After the healing period the final denture was installed. I can't say enough about how considerate, compassionate and professional Dr. Walton and his staff were . I was consulted and included in every step of the process. There was less pain than I expected and the final result is more than I could have asked for. I have had numerous complements on how good they look and how nice my smile is. The implants are easy to maintain and to care for. I do have to say that the implants were more expensive than the alternative, however I am very pleased with the results and highly recommend the implant procedure and Dr. Walton.
