Great Visit! Linda is thorough and cares about her client's teeth/gums. She's always careful to instruct me on proper brushing/flossing techniques. The receptionist is always friendly and helpful. Dr. Halpin is a very knowledgeable dentist. I highly recommend him.
I was greeted very nicely at the front desk when I entered and was shortly thereafter greeted by Dr. Halpin. He was pleasant but as others have said he did not look at my teeth and did not try to understand what was going on with them. He made assumptions and I had to correct him. I was quoted for x-rays, photos, and molds of my teeth and because I really needed help I agreed. I find that many dentists are eccentric so I just chalked it up to that. Again, the assistant (Amy) was very pleasant and helpful while she was taking the x-rays. Once Dr. Halpin took over taking photos I became uncomfortable. The way he spoke to his assistant came off as very rude, condescending, and demanding. While I was sitting in the exam chair all I was thinking was that there was no way he had many ortho patients because it did not seem like he knew what he was doing. When he took molds of my teeth he got the mold material all over my neck because he put his fingers in it and then put his fingers under my jaw to get the mold in place. He told me I could clean myself off in the washroom after. I have had those types of molds done a number of other times and I have never had so much stuff on my neck. I would not recommend that you go see him. There seem to be many dentists/orthodontists in the area so I would avoid Dr. Halpin and try somewhere else.
Dr. Halpin and his team to the rescue once again! Dr. Halpin and his team are fast, effective, and very well practiced. I have been a client for over 10 years and will always continue to be. Always a pleasure!
