What patients are saying

    • My daughter just had her first root canal done by Dr. Z and she had the most incredible experience.

      Every single staff member there made her feel totally comfortable and at ease with the entire experience! They did everything they could to make sure she was ok and comfy with everything they did.

      We love this dentist office! :)

    • My wife and I have been patients at Longworth Bowmanville Dental for ten years.

      We recently moved to the new Courtice clinic as it is closer to home. Our first experience at Longworth Courtice was every bit as professional, helpful and welcoming as our years at Bowmanville. The Barr's ensure they staff their clinics with professional, customer service oriented individuals in all aspects of their operation.

      Top notch service, top notch people. A big thank you!!

    • I have been a client since last December.

      I met with the owner when I first signed up and it was an amazing introduction and onboarding. They were very understanding of my fear of dentists due to past experiences and they really went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable with the procedures. When I got my wisdom teeth removed, they made sure I was okay and checked in with me to make sure I was healing properly and feeling okay.

      They completely changed my feelings towards 'the dentist' and I couldn't be happier, thank you team!! ❤️
