Always a pleasant appointment, I have a new hygienist, Monica, she is excellent, explains stuff that is going on in my... mouth. After a cleaning, she suggests different “tools” for cleaning pockets and in between teeth. I enjoy her sense of humour. She has pleasantly adapted to my personality. Thank you Aqua Dental Winnipeg for looking after my teeth for many years and I mean many.read more
I went for a cleaning of my teeth. The hygienist (Amanda) was very professional both in her effective an friendly... manners and communication and her cleaning skills. The cleaning went with no pain or discomfort at all. She knows how to do her job without inflicting any pain on the client. This is particularly important for us as clients. Also, in my case I was with limited time, and she accommodated the duration of the cleaning procedure to my schedule. At the end of the session, Amanda told me to expect some discomfort, that it is usual after a cleaning. However, and again, I did not experience any post cleaning pain or discomfort. And of course, the dentist came to duly supervise her well done job. The dentist was also very friendly and gentle in his check of her work in my teeth. I would recommend this dental clinic, and I am planning to come back in the future.read more

Every person I dealt with, from the... reception, to the hygienist, to the dentist, and everyone in between, was calming and explained everything in as much detail as I needed.Due to my anxiety and need to get work done beyond cleaning, they explained my options to help make me more relaxed, and settled on nitrous oxide - the fact that they even offered it was amazing to me.They checked in with me every step of my cleaning and later work to make sure I was doing okay. I've never so okay with the idea of going to the dentist. If I could give more than five stars, I would. A big thank you to everyone there for being so wonderful and patient.read more
