Ratings for Dr. Ricky Kochman
This dentist is not trust-able, so that if you make an appointment with him, in case your condition does not need any interference, he would definitely do something just to earn money from the booked appointment. This was happened to me. I was looking for a second opinion. I had a very mild irritation in my tooth which was only filled 3 weeks ago with a different doctor, and because my dentist was on vacation, I decided to get it checked by Dr. Kochman. He renewed my already renewed filling, and my pain got even worse. Then I found out we have to give time ( a few weeks) for our just filled tooth to desensitized. But Dr. kochman didn't tell that to me and although he had not found any reason in X-ray for my mild dental irritation which I felt seldom then, he drilled my tooth and filled it again, just to get money for his appointment, and since then I always feel more pain when I chew on that tooth. Never will go to him again.
Dr. Ricky Kochman's response
We would like to respond to this very concerning review as this is in no way how our office practices. We have gone over our bookings for the last 6 months and have no idea who this patient is and no recollection of this incident ever happening in this office. We would love to hear directly from this patient and find out exactly who you are and would love a chance to address this situation directly with you.

Dr. Kochman is an exceptional dentist who is knowledgeable, warm, kind, and truly cares about his patients. He has been especially amazing with our young son. I would recommend him without hesitation- the staff and hygienists are all fantastic as well.
I have been seeing Dr. Kochman for many years and would not go anywhere else. He is very good at what he does and you can tell he really cares. Every procedure I have had has been relatively painless and if there are issues afterward it is never a problem to get a prompt follow-up appointment. The staff are EXCELLENT especially Kristen at the front desk, she has been with Dr. Kochman for a very long time and you can tell she also loves what she does. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to this practice.
My family began seeing Dr. Kochman when his colleague, Howard Switzman, retired. While we miss Dr. Switzman tremendously, Dr. Kochman has proved to be just as exceptional. He has a terrific bedside manner and his support staff is second to none.
I have been seeing Dr Kochman for almost 30 years! He is gentle, funny, informative on the procedures he is performing, and makes you feel at ease. He has a treasure chest of little take home toys for kids - I loved it as a kid and it works well to distract the young ones today.
Been going to see Dr. Kochman for 25 years. I personally have very messed up teeth, but thanks to Dr. Kochman and his great staff my teeth are excellent. I also needed a root canal from a sports injury and because I was living out of town for school, Dr. Kochman recommended me to a doctor in London, Ont. That tells you the type of guy he is. Excellent dentist who I'd recommend to everyone and anyone.
I've been seeing Dr. Kochman since I was 4 years old! Im 34 now and have two kids of my own and now they see him too! Because of him and his ease and gentleness, I decided after high school to go to college to become a dental assistant and even did my 2 co-op placements with him. Hes honestly, hands down, the BEST dentist out there (and Ive worked for a few)! I would sooner recomend Dr. Kochman to anyone before recomending ANY of the ones Ive worked for! LOVE him!!!!
