Our Patient Testimonials


Ottawa Downtown Dentist

Josie Pazdzior
It was a positive experience with Karine and staff, as usual. A few hours later, I could hardly remember I’d spent over an hour in the chair, as the freezing wore off and all felt normal. They were very helpful and concerned to make sure the patient feels comfortable through entire procedure.

Russell Lemoine
I am greeted like an old friend as I walk in the door. My hygienist is the most gentle but thorough person I have ever had working in my mouth. Dr. Karine Plieva was and is very professional and personable while checking my teeth.

Happy patient
It is always a pleasure to be greeted by and to deal with Linda, who is so friendly and competent and really understands what customer service is all about. Lauren (?spelling) is always gentle and professional. Thank you all.

Happy patient
I found my experience very satisfying. Dr. Karine Plieva and Julianna, her assistant, were both gentle, knowledgeable, helpful, and made me feel relaxed. My filling was not too painful at all, even after the freezing wore off. My jaw/cheek was a little stiff from being held open, but not painful. I would recommend Dr. Karine Plieva.

Iwona M Customer since 1992
I appreciated that the receptionist was able to determine the necessity to give me an “emergency” appointment. It alleviated my concerns that further damage could be done if the tooth was. It looked after promptly. Dr. Plieva’s attentiveness and ongoing explanation as she was working on the tooth was reassuring.

Delighted patient
Linda at reception is consistently friendly and so helpful. Dr. Plieva was so kind to explain things and take the time to speak with me. I appreciate the wonderful service

Balesh K Customer since 2000
The experience of my visit with Dr. Karine Plieva was excellent. She is pleasant, professional, thoughtful and thorough in her work. I was very satisfied and I heard the same from my wife who is also a client. I will definitely recommend her to my friends.

Happy patient
My young daughter (7 years old) needed a tooth pulled and she was very nervous about it. She does not handle pain well at all. I thought that she would need to be sedated to have the tooth pulled. Dr. Plieva convinced me to let her try to pull it as she has a lot of experience with young children. Dr. Plieva pulled the tooth after freezing it and there were absolutely no tears from my daughter. Dr. Plieva explained everything and was exceedingly patient. She is an excellent family dentist.

Barbara M Customer since 1993
Dr. Plieva is very professional but also warm and engaging. It seems important to her that her patients fully understand and are comfortable with any treatment she proposes. As a new patient, I have been very impressed with Dr. Plieva and have complete faith in the dental care she will provide me.

Pleased patient
Outstanding service and attention to detail from all staff and Doctor K! As enjoyable as a “dental visit” can possibly be.

Nancy W Customer since 1988
Wonderful! Lauren is so good…I never have any pain when she is working on my teeth. She always asks me if I need a break or if I’m doing OK. Having just met Karine for the first time, she was great and I felt very comfortable with her.
