Ratings for Dr. Varjan Mensurian
I was his patient for 10 years, and kept returning to him to complain of extreme pain for over a year. He refused to diagnose the problem. I returned to him at least 4 or 5 times to seek help with pain that would keep me up at night, and all he ever did was give me a free sample of toothpaste which would address thinning enamel. He supposed this was the problem, without ever doing a diagnostic process. I went to get a second opinion, and the other dentist ran a thorough diagnostic, and it turns out I desperately needed a root canal; my tooth was in such bad shape that it actually fell within the top 10th percentile of problem teeth. Because it had gone for so long without proper care, my one root canal took over 10 appointments. I sought help from Mensurian for over a year. He ignored my descriptions, and actually scolded me for grinding my teeth, and he refused to conduct a proper assessment of the cause of my pain. I was his patient for over 10 years, and yes, he smiles and is nice, but when there is an actual problem, where cleaning or a simple cavity isn't the answer, he isn't willing to do the work. He should retire.
Went in for a new crown as existing porcelain crown had broken. After discussing gold versus porcelain -- I asked for a gold crown on my lower molar. Wound up with a porcelain - no explanation.. I wonder, is a porcelain crown cheaper than a gold crown ???
I was seen by the dentist right away and he talked to me about a couple things that needed to be done and then the hygienist took over, without taking any x-rays even though I had not had any done in awhile. The hygienist never did any scaling and just a quick polish, fluoride and I was done. Everything seemed a bit off for the whole appointment so I decided to go to a different dentist for another check up and he had missed two issues and the ones he did say were needed were purely cosmetic and on back molars. I was glad that I did not get any work done by him since I did not feel comfortable at his office and they are clearly not very busy since they offered me follow up appointments for the week of my check up. I would suggest a different dentist.
Yes, he may want to sell you botox, but it seems that as of late every dentist is trying the same. Not sure why this is happening. I have been Dr Mensurian's patient for many years (10+), and have had no issues. He is really good at what he does.
Dr Mensurian is great. He has been my dentist for 10 yrs now. He is knowledgeable,efficient,caring and always gives the best solution to fix the problem.As mentioned in previous ratings the cheapest solution might not be the best solution.Dr mensurian and his staff are great. I deff recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist.
Just back from my appointment with Dr. Mensurian. He's been my dentist since 1995 when I moved to Vancouver and am happy to say that the treatment I've received over the years has been first rate. He is ethicalt and knowledgable and his assistants have been most efficient. I recommend him highly.
