I cannot say enough about Keltie who spoke with me on the phone today. Keltie works for Dr David French at the front of office. I called to see if I could make an appointment with Dr French for the first time. Sadly many people have experienced ( myself included ) unhappy receptionists who do not seem to care about the people they are supposed to help. This is cause for concern, as it could be a reflection of the Doctor they are representing, or the poor treatment you may continue to receive each time you step into the office. Keltie however, was one of the most positive experiences I have ever had with assistance/ reception. Keltie was polite, friendly, very knowledgeable, informative, and took the time to answer all my questions. Keltie also spent time talking with me about Dental plans and codes, so I could find out in advance what coverage I have, and be prepared for financially. I must also say Keltie was extremely accomodating when she was booking an appointment for me. You have to wait a bit to see Dr French, but that must mean he has lots of people who want to see him. If Keltie is a reflection of the treatment I will receive, I'll be in very good hands. Robbie

Excellent!! Being a nervous pt Dr. French and staff were wonderful. Having to make difficult decisions regarding my treatment plan it was comforting to know that from the back end and front end staff all took great care my needs.

Dr. French is a wonderful doctor but his staff are really amazing. The receptionist helped me through my anxiety about my procedure. 10/10 would recommend.

Dr. French is a wonderful periodontist. But his reception staff need some training in customer service -- in particular one woman. It's already stressful visiting a dentist, and a friendly smile and voice would be very helpful.

Excellent all around. I was undergoing orthodontics at the same time as having two implants done - the difference in care was day and night. Dr. French is friendly, reassuring, and makes you feel completely at ease and confident in his skill and knowledge during in the procedure. Wish I could say the same for the orthodontist...

I saw Dr. French for an implant. I was very happy with his treatment especially since I saw a different periodontist prior who told me I would need a sinus lift and a bone graft! Dr. French was able to place my implant without all that which saved me money and less risk with the surgery! His staff was very helpful and cared very much. I can only recommend this office and would only see him in future if I need another implant. He is very thorough and knows what he is doing. 5 stars all the way!

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.
