“Dr. Cesar and her team are fantastic. A caring bunch for sure. The entire team takes extra time to ensure your experience is positive. I recently had my two front teeth capped. A little concerning given the front and centre location. My teeth were crooked and dead (brown). I now have straight white teeth. Amazing. Attention to every detail. Thank you, Dr. Cesar and team. I am / was a new patient looking for someone that specialized in cosmetic dentistry. I found a caring individual that goes above and beyond expectations. Thank you from “a customer for life.” -Jeff S.
“You two did an awesome job! Freezing lasted for a few hours, but when it finally came out I was in no pain at all. Celebrated by running out and purchasing a big box of chewy toffee that Jody recommended! LOL! Nope – just sucking on some sugar-free candy and drinking water. No pop! Have a great day!” -David S.
“As a new arrival in Abbotsford and needing dental care I found this office via internet and made an appointment. Upon entering I was greeted and due to Covid 19 procedures I was advised to sanitize and put on proper protective clothing including a mask and await the start of my appointment.
I was called in by name and taken to what appeared to be a properly protected and sanitized treatment area. The assistant informed me of what was going to happen after having me use a rinse due to the pandemic.
The dental assistant and the dentist, Dr. Louie then gave me a thorough examination with x-rays and cleaning in the most professional manner. I was informed of the results of the examination and the further appointment was made for treatment that was required.
The office and treatment areas were very clean and seem to be equipped with the most modern equipment. I will definitely be returning in the future along with my spouse as I was impressed with the care and treatment I received from everyone.” -Peter Enkirch
