I have recently switched dentists and I am extremely happy with Dr. Porco. He is calm, gentle and confident in his work and exhibits a bedside manner that is second to none. He is also very diligent in ensuring that I'm comfortable throughout the duration of my visits. If you're considering switching as I did, I strongly recommend Dr. Porco. He's an exceptional dentist at a first rate facility. The ceiling televisions in each office is also a nice touch.
Dr Porco is very skilled for his age and I am always impressed after each visit. He has fixed a couple of my crappy metal fillings that have left barely anything left of my teeth and given them new life and a new white colour! His expertise in this field is obvious and he rivals some who have been in this industry twice as long. He's also as sweet as pie which makes the experience of needles and teeth drilling more bearable. Thanks Dr Porco!
Dr. Porco has been my dentist since he started at Kildonan Crossing and has been very professional and come through for me in emergencies. He's fixed my broken tooth from a hockey incident and treated me for a tooth infection, getting me in for an appointment right away. As well replacing my old metal fillings, which look and feel 100% natural now. I would and I do recommend him to everyone.
Dr. Porco is a big upgrade over my former dentist. Love having some shiny pearly whites. They office is clean and all the staff is very professional. I would recommend this office and Dr. Porco to anyone.
I can't thank Kildonan dental and Dr Porco and his assistant Pat enough. My son had been waiting for another dentist to extract a decaying molar for well over a month. Sure enough in the middle of the night my son began screaming in pain and it didn't stop until the morning with the help of oragel. I walked in the door this morning and within 30 mins Dr Porco who had never seen my son before not only agreed to help him but did so with a calm reassuring demeanour despite my sons anxiety. I have never given an online review in my life but felt compelled to share my experience with anyone who may need a dentist or find themselves with a dental emergency.
Kildonan Crossing Dental Centre has served my family for almost 10 years. Never have I experienced disrespect, lack of care or concern, or untimely service. The facility is always extremely clean, has an inviting atmosphere, and accommodating staff members. Thank you for the great service over the years and the great service for years to come! P.S. We are sad that Dr. Julie no longer works there, but so happy that she has moved on to bigger and better opportunities! She is so wonderful with kids.
Dr. Timothy Lin is by far the best dentist I have been too. He listens to your concerns and is very attentive and always checks in with you to make sure you are ok. He did a root canal on a very painful tooth and he made all the pain go away and performed the root canal with no pain!! I nodded off during the procedure!! Also admin staff and hygienists are kind and compassionate!! Very impressed and definitely recommend Dr. Tim. Thanks Dr. Tim!!
Excellent service. I left the dental clinic feeling taken care of and with my teeth looking better than they have in years. The staff and dentist are polite, resourceful and friendly!!Dr. Porco performed a thorough exam and a routine procedure. The procedure was smooth and painless. I really appreciated the execellent care.
My daughter Carlina and I have just become new patients. Absolutely love our dentists and the staff here. Professional, courteous, and excellent care. Very happy with my recent work. We expect to be here long-term. Sincerely, Brenda Wagner
We took our 9 month old daughter to see Dr Porco for her first check up. He was gentle and patient with her and made the experience a positive one. He took the time to go over properly caring for a babies new teeth and we will absolutely be seeing him again. Highly recommend Dr Porco and the staff at Kildonan Crossing Dental!
Our whole family sees Dr Darryl, both she and her hygienist are fantastic. My 5 year old daughter is terrified of the dental xray, and both women have infinite patience with her, and are SO GOOD with her. My daughter had a problem tooth that they did a small filling on, and at the next cleaning when they discovered that she would actually require a crown and the filling hadn't been done in time, Dr Darryl (knowing we're self employed and don't have insurance) offered to subtract the cost of the filling from the cost of the crown. Totally above and beyond! Then when we went in for the crown, discovered a huge abscess and the molar had to be extracted. My daughter made it pretty difficult for them, it took an hour to administer the 3 needles and extract the tooth, and when it came time to pay, Dr Darryl only charged us for a "simple extraction". Can't say enough good things about this dentist/hygienist duo, they're so good at their jobs and they're so kind and patient. I highly recommend them!
I have fibromyalgia which makes dental work extremely painful. I have had mixed experiences here. My first dentist was ok but very cold. Unfortunately I mixed up the time of my appointment and was almost 10 minutes late. They book in strange increments sometimes, like 12:10. I apologized profusely, and felt terrible. My dentist actually pouted and didn’t speak to me for the first 10 minutes of my appointment. It’s not like I’m routinely late, or as if I’ve never had to wait for her. I switched dentists, and was so glad I did. Merlyn at the front is the epitome of professional, and even remembered that I had fibromyalgia after only my first visit. Lynn, who does billing was aware that there was a chip problem with my Visa that we just found out as I went to pay a huge amount for implants. This was just a matter of a scratch on the chip and no fault of mine. I had to go to the bank and return with a huge amount of cash. At a check up 4 days later she actually rolled her eyes at me as I had not received my new Visa in the mail in that short of a time. The additional charge was their mistake, and I was not even expecting to pay more. She made me feel like a deadbeat and said they didn’t take cheques. When I pointed out that there was no way I would have received a new Visa in that short of a time, she very grudgingly accepted a cheque. She was there when my Visa did not go through for the first time! No one gets a new Visa in 2 banking days. I had been a long time client and never had any issues with payment. Not a people person. I now dread dealing with her. The hygienists and assistants there are above excellent! My previous cleanings required freezing as they were so rough and I had pain for days after. Here, no freezing, no pain, and I’m so impressed! Pat is an Angel and the most kind and caring person you could ever have the pleasure to meet. There are other special gals there who have outstanding customer service, each giving their own special attention to you. I wish I could remember their names. Mike Porco is the best dentist I have ever had, and his staff worship and respect him. His gentle , but firm nagging was the impetus for me to quit smoking after 47 years! Am a month smoke free ! I recommend Mike to everyone I know. I can’t speak as to the other dentists here but if you want friendly, avoid Lyshka( spelling? ).
I have been coming to this office for many years now and still continue to enjoy all my visits here. Staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. Very relaxed and friendly setting. Highly recommended!
The building is warm and welcoming. I received a cleaning and Trisha did an amazingly thorough job. Not only that, she made sure that I was comfortable throughout the whole process. I just want to say thank you to Trisha, Dr. Porco and all the rest of the great staff at Kildonan Crossing Dental Centre.
It is always a seamless experience from booking the appointment, all the way through to follow up. A state of the art facility , the most kind and professional staff. Dr. Bohunicky is extremely gentle, informative, and has changed going to the dentist for myself. 10/10 thank you !
I just want to say thank you so much, especially to Dr. Lischka and Yvonne! I am from Germany and I traveled across Canada. My teeth were aching terribly and I came here as an emergency without an appointment. After just 10 minutes they had a very close look at my teeth. Both Dr. Lischka and Yvonne were so gentle and careful and explained everything they did to me. They found the tooth which causes the trouble and treated it. Usually I am very afraid of going to the dentist but that changed here. I can highly recommend this Dental Centre. I would definitely come back again.
Dr. Tim is awesome! I had really bad experiences with my previous dentist, when she did the numbing for me,it was so painful and I almost fainted, then they had to give me full sedation. But with Dr. Tim I barely felt it! My previous Dr told me she probably will extract one of my tooth as it's really hard to do the filling (that tooth is pretty healthy, and only got a little cavity because of my wisdom tooth. And I had that wisdom tooth taken out already). She didn't even offer any referrals to try to save it! But Dr. Tim just did the filling today, no problem! I'm so glad I made the move to see Dr. Tim!
