Always getting excellent care at Brookside Dental Centre! Highly recommend Dr. Xie and Natasha!
I have been a patient since 2013. Everyone - receptionists, hygienists, assistants, dentists, are super friendly and professional. I was so relaxed today in the chair I almost fell asleep! Dr. Shawn capped a broken front tooth for me in 15mins and it looks amazing. Love this place.

I have been going here for years for regular cleanings and checkups and have never had issues with either of these services. I also went here to get a night guard developed for me and didnt have any issues with that either. Staff is also friendly and the office is kept very clean.
