I wouldn't rate him at all. My experience was so bad, that I'd never let him touch my teeth again.

I have been seeing Dr Shivji for about 8 years as my family dentist! He is awesome! He is very kind to myself and family! I wouldn't hesitate recommending him to anyone!! I read the comments below and can't help to think that these comments are made by jealous people. He is fantastic and explains all procedures, and the girls at the front always give me an estimate so the is never any surprise!! Highly recommend???

Never sticks to an estimate but doesn't tell you until the procedure is well underway. Damaged an adjacent tooth and didn't say anything.

Dr Amin Shivji had horrible staff members. They were so rude and did not help you out at all. I had an appointment for 11am he ended up showing up at 3pm when he showed up there was no apology for being late. He did a filing on me that failed three times. I would not go to home every

Dr. Amin Shivji's response
We're sorry that you seem so unhappy. But your description of the staff could not be further from reality. Our staff are warm, compassionate, and friendly. Additionally, we would never keep a patient waiting for 4 hours and if a delay of that magnitude was required, we would have apologetically rescheduled rather than further inconvenience a patient. We're not sure of the nature of your relationship with the office, given the exaggerated nature of your comments, but if you're genuinely a patient, please call 604-263-7355 and we'd be happy to discuss your concerns.

Dr. Amin Shivji's response
We're very sorry if your appointment was delayed. This can sometimes happen, particularly around holidays when staff may be on vacation. Dr. Shivji is a wonderful employer who treats his staff as though they were family. If what you described is true, it must have been an unusual circumstance, such as the assistant having to cover for another staff member who was unexpectedly away that day. Please rest assured that if any staff are ever required to work extra hours, they are compensated generously and their commitment to their profession and our patients is deeply appreciated. We're very pleased that you rated our staff so highly, and we look forward to seeing you at your next visit. Yours in health, The Team at Kerrisdale Dental

I went to Dr Shivji's Kerrisdale office. It's in a home and I had just comfortable experience from start to finish. The equipment is all new and the office is digital. The hygienist is the best I have ever had. Everything was explained properly and options where given to me.
