  1. They have a website where you can request an appointment and list your availability. However, I would only suggest them as a last resort as they're all flash and no substance. When I went, they filled a cavity for me and made a right mess of it. It was painful and they took so long to do it that I missed class. Plus, I've heard horror stories about them pushing clients to undergo procedures that were unnecessary just so they could make a quick buck. They see cavities everywheeeere.

    1. Also, it's important to note that their policy is to charge you out of pocket upfront and then reimburse you later (if you have insurance).

  2. @ 1 - seconded. Don't go to campus dentist. They'll push you into getting a ton of work done that might not be necessary.

    OR if you do go, ask to see a male dentist. The woman (I forget her name) always told me I had tons of cavities. I saw a male dentist once for something different, and he said that a few of the ones she had marked down didn't actually need to be filled.

  3. Don't do it. Just don't. I got fillings done and my bite has been fucked up since. Over charged my insurance (I learnt this later when I visit my dentist from home) and we're just generally terrible. Stay away and look for another dentist in Waterlo.

  4. Thanks for the information and suggestions everyone. If I go and see another dentist off campus, I am still covered under the plan right?

  5. I'm still covered under my parents' health insurance until I graduate, so I went to Fisher Hallman Dental for a checkup and filling (it's located at Erb and Fisher Hallman). I found the dentist there to be very professional, friendly and knowledgable. Try giving it a try OP. http://www.fhdental.ca/
