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 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.

I saw Dr Shivji for a crown recently, When I went in to him I was verys skeptical about having a crown as the previous dentist I had seen had done a crown on me in the past and the tooth hurt me for months after. When Dr Shivji recomended the crown to me I got out of the chair fast and headed out of the office, As I got to the front desk the ladies at the front where informative and reassuring so I decided to have the crown done. IT WAS BY FAR the best dental experiance I have had, My tooth felt fantastic as soon as the freezing came out and the crown is wonderful, No problems. I would recomend him to anyone who wants an all round fantastic experiance. From front to back it was a first class visit. I will be back.
