Ratings for Dr. Iyad Alqishawi
our in-laws ( family) have been seeing this dentist and sometime his partner since 2010 truthfully when i first looked at some of these negative comments , i was skeptical. I actually went and seen a different dentist in town.I ended up going for a second opinion to spruce smiles .Let me tell you all , I truly trust and believe in this guy.he is very straight forward he listened to my concerns, he defended the other dentist professionally and gave me more options to avoid my constant pain .I am transferring my whole family to this clinic. highly recommended. very professional , and very skilled .He recommended I change in my old fillings ( 20 years old) and I did have some sensitivity for a bout a week , then the whole pain was gone. He recommended a whole page of work that was needed , we decided to phase out the treatment over 2 years . I m so glad these guys are in spruce it seems like these negative comments reflect nothing about the truth
I am frustrated with the care I received. I was told that I have amalgams that must be replaced, and I was stunned to hear that I have three cavaties after over a decade with no problems. My appointment to get my cavaties filled turned out to be a replacement of the amalgams. I arrived with no pain and no sensitivity. I now have pain and sensitivity on both sides. The dentist was also quite rude and abrupt with his assistant. Not impressed.
Best of the best in St albert and all of the west.. He took out all my wisdom teeth with no pain whatsoever.. I refered him sooo many family friends and my neighbors all are more than happy and impressed.. he is the Master of all Masters... thanks doc
Dr Al-Qishawi and his staff are superb to say the least!!! Everyone is very polite pleasant and very very knowledgable. I recently had a smile make over done and couldn't be happier!! Dr Al-Qishawi is patient friendly gentle and always explains his procedures to the patient. I have always felt comfortable expressing myself to him and have alway felt confident in his abilities!!! I would STRONGLY recommend him to any patient needing dental work!!! Fantastic dentist!!!
He's a great dentist and the staff there are great. I've had a lot of work there, including my wisdom teeth taken out and two implants put in, and i haven't had any problems. After each procedure i had minimal pain( compared to the pain that i've heard other people having who had the same thing done elsewhere) and they made sure to call to check up on you the next day.
My daughter visited the office to have her wisdom teeth extracted, she was very anxious about the procedure. Dr. Alqishawi and his staff were able to put my daughter at ease. The procedure was explained and all questions answered prior to starting. Everything went smoothly, the doctor and his staff were very professional and thorough. That evening the office made a follow up call to check on recovery progress, we felt very comfortable reaching out to the Doctor if we had any concerns during her recovery. An unpleasant experience was truly made as pleasant as possible.
This site will only allow 1000 characters, so my experience with Dr Al must be summarized. First visit was a general consultation, next visit the Dr indicated all my old fillings had to be replaced, the last I went in for an issue with one of my teeth and an entirely different procedure was performed and the same issue persists. A portion of the procedure on the last visit was completed with no anaesthetic – even after prompting from staff to administer and me almost passing out from the pain. This Dr is a combination of a used car sales man and Nascar pit crew. Worst dental experience ever - would not recommend and will not return.
Patient BEWARE!!! This dentist is only out to get your money! His dental assistant first took me to get a panoramic x-ray which I never asked for but she told me was required?!?! I then proceeded to get the normal bite-wing x-rays and then pictures of each tooth with an intra-oral camera. When I met Dr Al, he barely looked at my panoramic X-ray, breezed through my bite wing X-rays and focused entirely on these pictures from the intra oral camera. He told me that 6 of my teeth were "decayed" and that they all needed to be filled pronto! Let me point out that I had seen Dr Baron since I was born and I've only ever had one cavity my entire life so this news came as quite a shock! I seemed very suspicious and went to get a second opinion a few weeks later where I was told that absolutely nothing was wrong with my teeth and not ONE needed to be filled. This dentist should be under review. He is only out to get you and your insurance money. Stay far, far away!!!!!
