Ratings for Dr. Gordon Wacker
Dr wacker is probably the most experienced implant specialist in Edmonton . This man is caring and compassionate and as for experience second to none. I am 62 year old male had complications from medication I was taking and he probably saved my jaw. He is as professional as they come. I had four implants put in by him and I couldn't be happier. Thanks to him and his assistants and 7th Street Dental
Very kind until I had some procedures that went bad Than i was treated like I was a nut case only for me it was very serious and am still suffering the consequences ,and will have many years of surgery ,even if something can be done ,some Drs take on certain dental work that is above their abilities.
I was seeing Dr. Wacker for an implant procedure. The most frustrating thing about visiting his office is the total disregard for your time. They don't like it when you come late but don't care that you always have to wait. Not fair. A ten minute appointment takes an hour. When he finally does come to see you he is cordial and spends the time with you. He is friendly and seems capable. I decided to not proceed with the implant surgery after having the extraction and bone grafting. I felt I was blind-sided with a sudden need for a sinus lift procedure which was entirely out of pocket for me. The cost for one tooth was now at $5500. I can't afford that. Now I know why the dentist drives a Porsche and the patient drives a Kia. Another concern I had was about infection control. The assistant would have you take Tylenol out of her hand. She would install the plastic cover on the digital x-ray part that goes in your mouth with her bare hands. Minor stuff but probably a bad practice.
Friendly doctor. He took time to get to know my daughter (3 y.o.) by playing peek-a-boo, by making a balloon out of a surgical glove, and by asking her what she was interested in (princesses) and talking with her for a minute about it. Comprehensive in his exam, took time to ask background questions (rather than assuming we feed her juice 24/7 as other Dentists do) and explained things clearly, actually engaging in dialogue with me, rather than just spewing info. Unfortunately, he does not see children until they are 7 or 8 =(
