Ratings for Dr. Charles Lin
I was referred to Dr.Lin from my dentist because he has had trouble freezing me in the past and has been using Dr. Lin's services for many years. I was nervous at first because of my previous experiences with my dentist but Dr. Lin assured me that things would be fine and he was right. Dr. Lin had no trouble freezing me, it was painless and I have also had painless root canals done with Dr. Lin. He is very professional and has an outstanding staff as well. I no longer am afraid of dentist!
Dr. Lin has attended to both my family and I for the last 15 years and has done so in a highly proficient and conscientious manner. His conduct and that of his staff has been beyond reproach in all facets of his practice. In light of such disparaging and malicious accusations, I was compelled to verify the outcome of the cases referred to in the previous post. Upon further investigation, both the Dental Association and Small Claims court deemed that the claims were baseless and without merit. In these highly litigious times that we live, individuals should exercise a greater degree of caution before maligning a person’s character. Such thoughtless behaviour provides no apparent benefit, yet may encourage unwelcomed responses or reprisals from the wronged party. Occurrences of character defamation appear to be on the rise and if left unchallenged, these incidences will continue to inspire such reckless conduct that anyone of us could be the next victim.
Money hungry type. I had to sue him (Court File No. SCC-1129/09)to recoup the money to re-glue his work. He would not take responsibility for his own work. It was everybody else s fault, according to him. Charged me more than the recommended maximum of his Dental Association for some work. When I complained about his treatment(File No. C090046S) he cried racism. Recommended expensive treatments because he has the equipment(like laser) and wanted to replace a good crown, said it was decaying. An independent examination showed no decay present. I'm still having problems with the work he did. After observing his behaviour and affect during my ordeal with him, I believe he has a personality issue detrimental to patients.
I have been taken care of by Dr. Lin for the past 25 years. He has done removals, fillings, and the preparations for and then put teeth on my implants. I am very happy with the results, and my implants were the best thing for my situation. They feel wonderful--just like my own teeth. I almost never think about them, which is the best sign you can have about something like that. Before finding Dr. Lin I tried two other dentists in this city but I found Dr. Lin to be the best. He assessed my problems carefully and talked with me about possible approaches, and I am truly happy that he did, because I feel that I can go many more years and continue to avoid serious teeth problems (I am 65 now). For me, Dr. Lin has been the best dentist I have had, and this has been the time in my life that I have had the most problems with my teeth.
Moving here from Calgary where we had outstanding dental care, we were referred by friends to Dr. Lin. Friendly reception but a fairly long wait in the chair before either a hygienist sees you or one of the dentists. Second visit with hygienist and I didn't feel my teeth were cleaned, just a cursory scrape here and there. Had toothache under crown in August and made 3 expensive visits to Dr. Lin and his associates who gave me strong antibiotics and in October Dr. Lin finally told me it was 'chronic.' I was in waiting room 30 minutes and in the chair 1 hour before I saw him and he said perhaps under my crown should be aggressively cleaned but he didn't have the time. More drugs and come back in 3 weeks. Decided to try another 'referred' dentist who, in one hour, told me my condition was not chronic, and tried a procedure that has given me instant relief and he also said he would refer me to a specialist at UWO if ineffective. I'm ecstatic. I'm underwhelmed with Dr. Lin's care.
Dr.Lin is an amazing dentist--he is incredibly knowledgeable, skilled, kind and interested in whatever it is you are sharing with him. Though at times I may wait to see him, I know that he gives each patient the time that is needed and is always respectful of patients and their families. All of the staff are so ahppy and friendly, everyone looks like they just love their jobs. His hygienists are both so nice and the cleanings are always excellent. I consider myself very fortunate to have found this dentist and his great team.
