I was referred to this periodontist by my family dentist. The purpose of the referral was to have a deep gum cleaning. It took a number of weeks to get a call from Dr. French's office. They left a message and I called back to get an appointment. I was told the earliest appointment was for December, 2016 - 10 months away. Then I was told the appointment was not for a cleaning (which had already been diagnosed as necessary by another periodontist) but rather for another initial consultation. I tried to explain that I wasn't looking for a second opinion - this is when I was rudely cut off and told - we do not simply follow another periodontists' recommended work. I acknowledged that but asked whether it would be possible to ..... cut off again. The message being conveyed was - hey, we don't need your business, take it or leave it. Well, I decided to leave it and hope others do likewise.

Dr. French is a perfectionist! You get nothing but the very best clinical care from this Doctor who also expects top standards of practice from his staff as well. I have been a patient for a very long time and because of the treatment received, my gum disease is at bay and I have been able to retain most of my natural teeth. Probably the best service you are ever going to receive in Alberta.

Dr. French is extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain his recommendations so I had a good understanding of what was going to be transpiring with my treatment. I was very comfortable with the surgery and the outcome has been excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. French and his staff - they have a very professional office and everyone was focused on taking care of my needs. I really appreciated the service and care.

I had very extensive work to be done and I was nervous - not only about the possible discomfort and the outcome, but also about my appearance in the meantime. Dr. French and his staff are so knowledgeable, polite, reassuring and kind that my fears were abated. I am now about 2/3 through a several-month treatment plan and am very pleased. At each stage my questions have been answered and concerns addressed. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. French and his quality staff!

Exceptional treatment! Extremely skilled and professional doctor. Excellent communication - fully understood all aspects of my treatment before during and after. Felt very safe, confident and comfortable the entire time. Loved it that the actual dentist called the next day to check on me. Can't say enough great things about the staff. I would highly recommend Dr. French and his staff.

Dr. French took such good care of me! They got me in even though they were fully booked several months ahead by recognizing that it was urgent. I really appreciate the extra effort and the staff was fantastic.
