    As a cement finisher for highrise condo construction, my schedule changes on a day to day basis on an extreme scale. This practice went above and beyond to accommodate me and the service I recieved was the best I have ever had. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a dentist to try Smiles on Lawrence. It was a seamless and high quality experiance and this practice will be my dental office from now on.

    From the moment I walked into the practice I was welcomed by friendly and professional staff. I was taken care of from signing in, my x-rays, examination and cleaning. I honestly felt like I was at a spa! I won’t be dreading any future dental work ever again and I’m actually looking forward to going back.

    I had a great experience with Dr. S Young Lee! She's super chill and didn't make me feel like she needed me to finance her next vacation by signing up for veneers and other expensive niceties, as other dentists have done. She is down to earth and friendly, and the whole practice has a nice, relaxed and friendly vibe. I also found everyone there to be super efficient. I hate spending time at any type of appointment and I really hate when dentists make you wait around forever because they are seeing 10 patients at once. I was in and out in a reasonable amount of time, which I really appreciated. Will definitely go back!

    Doctors are very honest about the condition of the teeth even when they are good. They did not ask for undue treatments to be done. I found their suggestions very reasonable and apt. Hygienist did a great job at teeth cleaning. I would recommend Dr Young to anyone requiring help with their teeth.

    I am absolutely terrified of going to the dentist but the team at Smiles on Lawrence Dental were all friendly and put me at ease. DR. Lee and Michelle were very patient and informative and gave their honest opinions on different routes I can take regarding minor issues with my teeth. I am still a bit fearful but I will DEFINITELY be going back for a follow up in February!

    From the moment I stepped into Smiles on Lawrence to when I left the office, the entire experience was excellent. Everyone was so warm and welcoming and really made me feel comfortable during my time there. Dr. Lee was very thorough and knowledgeable and really understands teeth - she will look at your teeth and instantly knows what's up. Susan, my dental hygienist, was very personable and lovely. She takes her time to explain everything she's doing, including what each tools is for and what it will do to the teeth — its the little details! I hadn't been to a dentist in about 7 years, I was a bit hesitant going in.. but the team at Smiles on Lawrence were all lovely and made me feel super comfortable . I now know how important dental care is (and flossing!), because in my 33 years of life, I had never had a cavity until now (*sigh*) - goes to show how important getting a routine cleaning is for the teeth. My next appointment has been set and I'm more determined than ever to keep up with my dental visits! Thank you Smiles o0n Lawrence :)

    Amazing experience I had on my first visit. The staff, Adi, was very approachable and helpful. As uncomfortable as it seems to get your teeth x-rayed, my Hygienist never rushed me and waited for me to relax before proceeding. And lastly Dr. Lee always asked me how I was while doing the procedure and made the whole experience excellent as a new patient.

    Dr. So Young Lee's staff took great care of me from the moment my booking was confirmed. This is my first time at a dentist in Canada and I have been nervous for a long time about the visit. Even the admin staff who called me to confirm my appointment was calm and reassuring about the experience. There were no delays. The dental hygienist was a sweet and patient lady who took extra good care of me the whole time. Dr. So Young Lee came in for a full consultation and was to the point about everything. There was no bs and she laid it out very clearly. She was also open a out options that I could take for my wisdom tooth extraction. Overall great experience!!
