Serghei and his staff in both clinics have been amazing! So friendly and accommodating. The digital denture he made me has been a game changer. I feel like I have my own teeth. I came in feeling very defeated from past experiences and Serghei made me feel comfortable and listened to. I fully recommend this clinic
I just got my new dentures from Apple Dentures in Port Hope and I have to compliment Serghei for the great, great job he did on them! The new dentures are awesome! With the new method of making dentures that the clinic is using, I went in for one fitting and my full set of dentures were ready in two weeks without any further appointments! They fit perfectly and I haven't had even a minor problem with them. They are so good, I hardly even know I got new dentures! Serghei is always so pleasant and knowledgeable and takes all the time necessary to ensure a proper fit. I recommend them to anyone looking for a positive experience getting dentures. Thanks Serghei!!
