    I had not been to the dentist in years due to a terrible phobia - made an appointment for myself & my 4 year old. The entire team was simply wonderful. Dr Anand was so careful and gentle knowing how nervous I was. He explained everything he was doing. He was incredible. My son gave them a hard time but Dr. Anand was so patient. He was absolutely amazing!! Start to finish this clinic was excellent So lucky to have found Limelight dental.

    I have a wisdom tooth that is growing incorrectly. I had gone to the dentist to get this checked. They administered an X-ray and confirmed my suspicion. Dr. Rao was very kind and efficient in explaining to me the next steps.

    The staff were very polite and professional, made me at ease after not being at the dentist for several years. Dr. Rao did a quick assessment part way through my cleaning and was also very pleasant. The experience was very easy, and the hours at the clinic are very accommodating for those who work 9-5 type jobs to fit you in before work, after work, or on weekends.

    I scheduled an appointment for a dental cleaning and check up. I was greeted by the very friendly front desk staff, set up as a new patient in no time and went on for x-rays and cleaning, looked after by Niki. She was absolutely amazing! I had had a very bad experience with my last cleaning in downtown Toronto and Niki and the team put me very much at ease and "took it easy on me" to ensure i didn't experience and discomfort or pain. I would highly recommend this practice as their staff is very courteous, professional and 100% dedicated to the best patient experience.
