Ratings for Dr. Kenneth Chow
Dr. Kenneth Chow is AH-MAZING. My dentist referred me to him after a horrible experience with another dentist while she was away on vacation. I was so nervous and had so much anxiety prior to my appointment. Dr. Chow was very friendly upon meeting him and was very calming throughout my appointment. He answered all my questions and walked me through each step. I was in and out of my appointment within 30 minutes (1 wisdom tooth). Most of my time was spent on filling out paper work, having his assistant walk me through instructions about what to do after my appointment, and him telling me what he was about to do. The actual taking out the tooth took less than 10 seconds. I was so shocked. The most painful part of my appointment was the needles. After that, everything else is seriously gravy. He is honestly amazing and is really good at his job. I would recommend him to anyone.
My wife and I are so happy and impressed with DR.Kenneth .From the moment we met him and had a consultation to todays surgery of a dental cyst on our young daughter Gabby! A most pleasant,informative surgeon whose priority is for the patient and not money as the main concern. Dr.Chow made us feel at ease about our daughters extractions and recovery. A very nice man who we would refer to others immediately. Thanks from the Long family
Im not easily impressed person but I was very much impressed from Dr. Chow knowledge, honesty and approach to the problem. Staff was helpful and accurate. Everything was done on time with efficiency. Our society need more people as Dr. Chow - knowledgeable and honest.
Dr. Chow was wonderfully accommodating, helpful, professional, and knowledgeable from the consultation to the after care recovery period of my procedure - his staff likewise. I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed in 20 minutes (another dentist said the procedure would take 2 hours) with no complications whatsoever. The procedure itself was short and easy, and him and his staff helped in easing the intimidation of the process. I experienced very minor pain and swelling following extraction - I didn't need to take the next day off work. I did not use any of the prescribed pain killers as they were not necessary. Dr. Chow frequently checked in days into my recovery period to see if I had any questions or concerns. 6 days later I called him to be sure everything was healing properly and he made time for a quick cleaning and check up that same day. A bonus is the beautiful office space - I would recommend Dr. Chow to anyone.
Had the pleasure to have Dr. Chow to extract my wisdom teeth (all four of them). From the consultation to the procedure, Dr. Chow and his staff have been accommodating, friendly and professional. The practice space is clean and uncluttered, not the mention the floor to ceiling windows overlooking one of Vancouver's prime water view. As promised by Dr. Chow, I would honestly say I had minimal pain, swelling, and bleeding post-op (considering I took all four out, two of them being impacted). And when I had concerns in regards to my stitching, Dr. Chow and his staff were very patient and answered my questions knowledgeably. Thumbs up, 5 stars, would definitely recommend.
Got my implants finally restored. The process lasted over a year and involved surgically removing 3 teeth, completing two bone implants and finally the insertion of the implants and the crowns. Every surgery I underwent had me back in action the next day (actually played golf the next morning - twice). I was explained the entire process along with possible complications very clearly ahead of the commencement of work. My family dentist (who I have known for 12 years was relatively vague and more interested in getting the process started). I found Dr. Chow's clinic to be very self sufficient, the staff to be personable and professional and Dr. Chow to be very competent. I am glad I went the route of implants because they feel no different from my other teeth and the impact on my quality of life (I love to eat good food) has been phenomenal. Last but not the least, when I got the quote from my dentist (same family dentist that I have known for 12 years - Doctor Chow was able to get me an alternative with the same implant manufacturer for $2100 less than the original quote from my dentist.
Got my wisdom teeth pulled out yesterday. The dental office was nice and clean, and the staff was very helpful. My friends all told me that my mouth would hurt for at least 3 days after the surgery, but they probably didn't get their teeth removed by Dr. Chow. As it turns out, I only experienced moderate pain for the first three hours. I took one Advil capsule and the pain was almost completely gone for the next 5 hours, till I went to bed. Didn't even need to use more potent painkillers. Bottom line, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who doesn't want lingering pain in their mouths, which is in my opinion the worst type of pain
I recently needed to have a horizontally impacted wisdom tooth removed, following a dental infection in the area. (In a nutshell, I had ignored recommendations to have my wisdom teeth out for about 20 years, so this particular wisdom tooth ended up damaging the roots of the adjacent molar so much that the molar eventually became infected.) Being in my late 30s, I'm considered an "older patient" for wisdom tooth removal, and consequently felt extremely nervous about the procedure, especially after doing way too much research on the subject! Thankfully I was referred to Dr. Chow, who was able to allay my fears. He was wonderful throughout the process, and his staff likewise. Yes, it's true that they have a busy office, but Dr. Chow definitely took the time to listen to and address all my questions and concerns. I was told the various options in terms of anaesthetic, and chose to have IV sedation. The process was quick, and I recall little of it. Recovery went fine, as I followed all of their instructions to the letter. I'm leaving this online rating in the hopes that it might assist others in my position, who are anxious about having a procedure done. Based on my experience, you will be in very competent hands with Dr. Chow. I would highly recommend this office to anyone in need of oral surgery!
My daughter recently had all 4 of her wisdom teeth extracted by Dr.Chow. He is skilled,knowledgeable, and has an excellent chairside manner. The office staff are professional and friendly. On the day of surgery, he had a brief discussion with me before proceeding. He gave me a prescription and told me it would be a good idea to get it filled so I would have it ready for my daughter. Well, I took his advice and went away for about 40 minutes. When I returned, the staff told me my daughter was already in recovery! Linda, the assistant gave her post-surgical instructions, ice pack and gauze. Dr.Chow contacted me in the evening to check on my daughter, and Kathleen (office staff) called me the next day as well. My daughter had very minimal pain and very slight swelling. Thank you Dr Chow and staff for making this a great experience for my daughter! You are truly the BEST ORAL SURGEON in town!
I had 2 wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Chow and had a very positive experience. The entire procedure took less than 30 minutes and was painless too. I did not experience any swelling or bruising on my face, and my gums stopped bleeding after a day or so. Dr. Chow made a nerve-wracking experience much more pleasurable. He called me daily after my surgery to check up on me and see how I was feeling, which I greatly appreciated. Staff was very friendly, professional, and caring! I highly recommend Dr. Chow; I guarantee you will be in good hands!
