Ratings for Dr. Stephen Weingarten
I have been seeing Dr. Weingarten for over 25 years. I was a bit sad to learn that he was retiring soon. I booked my last appointment with Dr. Lee and was surprised at how much like Dr. Weingarten he was. So kind and caring. I'm so glad he found Dr. Lee !
I am happy to say that my search for a new dentist is over. Dr. Lee has alleviated my worries in starting with a new dentist as his calm, professional and personable demeanour offer the best setting in which to receive dental care. Dr. Lee is extremely knowledgeable and explains things in a way that I understand. He also gives me all the available options, which I really appreciate. Recently, I had trouble with a tooth that unfortunately needed to be extracted. He let me think about the decision, gave me the pro/con list, the time-frame, and reassured me that is wasn't the end of the world - which really put me at ease. I booked my extraction appointment, but before the scheduled removal date felt something funny in the area. Since Dr. Lee instructed me to call right away if there were any changes, I called the office to come in on the same day, and they promptly gave me an appointment. The extraction went superbly, I didn't feel a thing and actually asked if the tooth was out (which it most certainly was). Don't hesitate, visit Dr. Lee today to make the best decision for your dental care needs.
Dr Weingarten is nice but he messed up my front tooth and took out the whole corner. My photo from the day before is nothing like the one on the day he worked on my front teeth. He rushes through everything that he does. Most likely to get the next person in, however, I haven't spent more than 25 minutes for any work done! As a result, during my last visit, the front tooth is missing a corner. He just filed it away. Not sure where the #1 rating comes in. I will have to spend more money to get the tooth re-done!
Went to him last week for the first time. Needed an extraction which he did and I had very little pain afterward. He called me personally the next day to see how I was doing. I will definitely go back.

Kind, skilled, honest, compassionate, professional, calm...I could write pages about how wonderful Dr Weingarten and his staff are and have been throughout the many years that I have been his patient. I was a super nervous patient when I started seeing him due to bad experiences with a dentist I saw as a child. Dr Weingarten is so considerate and wonderful, a visit to him, even if it involves having work done beyond just an exam and cleaning, is a relaxing and stress-free experience. I highly recommend Dr Weingarten to anyone, particularly those who are nervous about having dental work done.

I actually love visits to the dentist because Dr. Stephen Weingarten and his team are such a delight! Him and his wife Fern are patient and very caring. He is an excellent dentist and makes me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. I had a regular cleaning today and it didn't hurt one bit - although I had lots of tartar built up. He took his time and gave me plenty of space to rest my jaw. I highly recommend this dentist and thankfully, they're always accepting new patients!
I went in as a first timer for cleaning. Dr. Weingarten himself does the cleaning and does not leave it to a hygienist. He took left and right molar x-rays but said a panoramic x-ray was not a necessity. He polishes first and then scales which is quite different from others who generally scale first and then polish. He is very patient and explains anything that one may request clarification for. I was not given a fluoride rise after the treatment. So in my opinion, this is more of a traditional dentist's office where only the necessary items will be done without up selling.
