I've seen Dr. Oguntimein twice now and I have been really impressed. I'm really afraid of dentists/dental work and she was really understanding. The first time the wait time was excellent, the second time there was a bit of scheduling issues and equipment was acting up. However, the care I got in the end was well worth it.

I was impressed by the professional manner of the staff--I felt very comfortable with the dentists poking around in my mouth, which is impressive given my anxiety about the dentist. Wait time was unfortunate, but I would rather be processed slowly than rushed through by shoddy staff. Strongly recommend.

I was not actually seen by Dr. Oguntimein, but by the other dentist in the practice. Overall, it was fine, but I will not be going back to this office. Once I was finally seen, it took a long time to take the x-rays. The machine was held together with packing tape, and they had to keep unplugging/plugging it in to get it to work. I had to go back to work, and so asked to start the cleaning. The cleaning was fine, and standard, but I didn't leave with the nice "fresh from the dentist" feeling. There was no sink available at the chair, and had to go to the washroom to rinse my mouth. So overall, everyone was nice, but the whole place seems to need an upgrade of equipment and a better management of the office.

She is very professional, patient and gentle to her clients. Her disposition inspires great confidence that I don't have to worry about her decision. No one has handled my teeth better. That's why we decided that she should be our family dentist. Dr Oguntimein's personality is a wonderful therapy because she and her staff keeps you relaxed and smiling on every visit. Nothing to worry about.

Hello, I had an emergency because my tooth broke on Saturday. I was able to schedule and see Dr. Oguntimein on Monday. It was a tooth close to the front and my nephew was getting married on Saturday. She pulled the tooth which had a crown on it. Dr. O has a lot of work to do on that tooth before it is fully installed, but was able to send my imprint to get me a temporary tooth on Tuesday. I will be ready with many smiles to take pictures at the wedding.

Very friendly and professional staff. There is one thing though that should be improved: follow-up with patients. Quite a few times I've inquired about additional services (Invisalign for example) and the staff were to check with my insurance and let me know what the options were, yet they never called me back. Another example is that they did imaging (radiography) on my teeth, checking for a possible cavity and they were to call me back and tell me what the result was and if I was to come back. It's been 5 month, and nobody called me back. Cleaning - I have 4 cleaning sessions paid per year by my insurance, yet no appointment was made for me for this year. They are great doctors but the office needs to do a much better job with following up with patients.

The hygenist who cleaned my teeth was fine though she said almost nothing. Dr. Oguntimein never even came to see me. Not that an exam was needed, it just seemed odd. They only do cleanings on Tuesday and Thursday and yet they allowed me to set a cleaning appointment on a Monday. The doctor was busy with other patients. If they don't have time to see routine patients then they should not have allowed me to set a Monday appointment. It is easy enough to schedule for another day.

Fantastic bedside manner, very warm and friendly. I waited for a while but I believe it's because Dr. Oguntimein spends a lot of time with each patient. I'm used to hygenists doing the work and only seeing the dentist for about 5 seconds - she does most of the work herself and is very good at what she does.
