Ratings for Dr. Victor Duchnay
Ive been going here since a child and everyone is great. Its a safe clean environment and they always give reminder calls. The only problem i found is due to unexpected hospitalizations at last minute ive missed a few appointments and was told to find a new dentist bit other than that they were great. They were even very patient and helpful with my autiatic child always put her at ease. She enjoyed visiting them and shes cooperative with them but fifhts me with brushinging her teeth. They very professional and friendly great staff and clean.
I was recommended to Dr. D to try an NTI device. I wasn't very satisfied with it, but he insisted it was only because I needed to come in frequently to have it adjusted (who has time for that?). He was polite enough, but didn't adequately explain why things needed to be done. i.e. he showed me an X-ray and when I said that I didn't see the "cavities", he just upped the contrast, which to me (with experience using quantitative microscopy) just looked like artifacts of image processing. I recognize he was looking for prevention and 'small cavities' but it seemed excessive to me. They also call all the time! Again, it wasn't the worst experience, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend.
This dentist recommended over $1800 of work to me saying that I had 8 cavities. Being suspicious I sought a second opinion and in that assesment I was told that there are 0 cavities and only one filling that needs to be replaced at a cost of $200. I would NEVER go to Dr.Duchnay again and would strongly recommend NOT going to him. He was unpleasant when I mentioned my concerns. His staff, however, are very pleasant and his hygenist did an excellent job of cleaning my teeth.
Dr. D is a very helpfula and polite, I have been in the practice for over 20 years and would not let anyone touch my teeth, I still have his original fillings that have not been replace. I far as I a concerned he does excellent work. His staff is very caring and understanding, now he has a hygienist who cleans your teeth like no one did before, she is fantastic and takes the time to really teach you wat you need to do to keep your teeth healthy. Now I really know how to floss and understand why it is important. My mouth feels great. Thanks Dr. Duchnay and staff!
I REALLY wish I knew about this site before going to Dr. D (recommened by the Brantford Welcome Welcome). I'm sad to say, I have nothing but bad things to say about this dentist. He does things that don't need to be done and created more problems for me and my husband than we had before. He totally tramatized my child by yelling at him to "hold still", "stop biting me" and "that doesn't hurt". He asked that my child be held down during a filling. I don't think so! I must say the other staff in his office were all fantastic!!
