One of the raters is right. This man is not a dentist but a denturist and not a good one at that. No explanations for options. Had a plate made and could not wear it for 2 years even after all the so called readjustments. Ended up having teeth taken out due to shifting and am not with a qualified oral surgeon. What a waste of money. He has a son Manny who spends even less time with you. He recommends implants and told me they would take bone out of my hip! Yikes! This is the superstore of dentistry.

Dr. Joe Minuk's response
I am sorry you feel you had a negative experience at out clinic. Your concerns are valid and I would like to invite you to come back to see us to discuss this matter. It seems you may have had an immediate denture made at our office. For most individuals the bone shrinkage is more rapid in the first year after having their teeth extracted. If that was the case then yes you would have had to come back several times for adjustments and fittings to allow your denture to settle in as your gums and bone shrink and heal post extraction. These changes are described fully during initial consultation as well as at the end of the treatment. We also provide all of our clients, information brochures specific to their treatment plan so they have more clarity. Please contact our office at 204-589-6329 to discuss this matter and allow us the opportunity to help you. Sincerely, - Joe Minuk

I am very unhappy with this I still have to go back so they can fix what they did wrong. The girls at the front are amazing, my dental guy I see is probably a nice guy but when a client is unhappy with the work cause they are not only crooked but they are lopsided, I showed them where and how but they do not stay in the room long enough for you to explain anything. I am wondering if they have students working on dentures? So he takes them and files them down. Wouldn't someone normally take them and redo them if they are all crooked and lopsided? So now I am still paying for teeth that make me want to cry. Not impressed wouldn't recommend this company to anyone! So now I wait three weeks to go back for the 4th time to see if he can get them straight!!

I am sorry you feel your needs were not addressed. As part of our protocol our standard of practice entails wax try in for our clients as this is the appointment where we give the client a chance to view their teeth and allow us to make any changes as necessary prior to finishing the case. Wax tryins can be done as many times until the client has approved of the arrangement and is happy with the results. We do our outmost best to listen to our client’s needs. With fairness to all of our clients, our appointment times are limited as they would be in any medical or dental office. All of our work is done on sight by highly qualified technicians and cases are overseen by each denturist specific to their client. At times we do invest our time for Denturism Interns registered with the province of Manitoba to shadow us in our clinical settings with client consent. If you would like more time to have your needs addressed please inform our staff so that you are accommodated accordingly. Please call us at your earliest convenience so that we may address your concerns and rectify the situation. The office contact number is 204-589-6329. Thank you. Sincerely, - Joe Minuk

To the last comment, no he is not a doctor nor does he advertise that he is, so there is nothing misleading about this website as he probably didn't put himself in it. There is a dentist in his office though. There must be a reason why his clinic is so successful! In fact he is the guy that helped me after nobody else could!

This doctor should show other doctors in all fields of medicine HOW to conduct themselves with patients. From the first "Hello" he makes you feel comfortable, relaxed, and feeling" that you have finally found a doctor in dentistry who will go to any lengths to make sure you get THE BEST treatment possible. I started seeing him about 4/5 years ago and have never regretted my decision. Dr. Joe does everything in his power to make sure that from beginning to end of treatment(s) you are comfortable, properly fit, happy with end results, and have no fear of having any embarrassing moments with your dentures. He is also insistant that, should you have even the slightest problem, you come back immediately to have the problem addressed and rectified. He is even going the extra mile to assist me in finding a good GP that I so desperately need. From start to finish his professionalism is 5* rated. I would (and have) recommend him to anyone and everyone. His staff is also TOP NOTCH!! PM

I had some dentures mads by "MR" Minuk,and they did not fit properly. I went back for several adjustments and they still did not fit. I gave up after the 6th adjustment and went to another denturist who had the problem solved right away.
