Dr. Thistle’s Reviews

Lovely and Positive

“I only just began treatment with Dr. Thistle but he is so wonderful. Going to the dentist can be such a nerve wracking thing for people. He is calm, nice and genuine with his care. The team are all so lovely and positive and all very reassuring. They care about you, and your health! :)”

He is Excellent

“He has been my dentist for about 4 years. He is excellent. And all his staff are great.”

Comforting and Professional

“Dr. Thistle was amazing. I've had so much work done on my teeth, and honestly - he's the first Dentist I've been to where I haven't felt the needle. He has wonderful manner, is comforting, funny and professional. His staff is fantastic as well, always smiling and friendly and very knowledgeable. I can't recommend Dr. Thistle (and team) enough!!!”

Dr. Ryan’s Reviews

Gentle and Compassionate

“I have been going to Dr. Ryan for the past six years and she is the best dentist that I have found in Halifax. She is very gentle, knowledgeable, and concerned for her patients. I am glad that she found her own practice at Purdy's Wharf and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a gentle and compassionate dentist.”

Nice and Personable

“Very nice and personable. Has your best interests at heart and gives you all possible treatment options.”

Really Nice and Caring, Excellent Work

This is a GREAT dentist. Not only is her work excellent (fillings look really beautiful, they last, and the bite is very good) but she is on time, and is a really nice person. Great bedside manner. Her staff are fantastic too. Everyone in her practice is friendly, polite and you get the feeling that all of them including Dr. Ryan really cares about you, not just about your dental health. Today at 1:30pm I had an old filling fall out because of some thick floss I was using and was in quite a bit of pain. I texted Tina the receptionist and by 5pm my filling was replaced. That kind of emergency service is stellar and rare. I've had horrible experiences with dentists in my past. I'm extremely happy with every visit I've ever had with Dr. Ryan, and have been seeing her for years now. If you need a new dentist, this is the one.
