General Family Practice With a Holistic Approach To Dental Care...

Isabella testimonial

My dental work involved replacing all (approx 10) my amalgam fillings - the prospect of this ordeal filled me with dread. Amazingly, Dr. Fortinsky completed the work in 3 sessions that were pain-free and anxiety-free. His approach is meticulous and friendly. We discussed all the issues in detail, conducted indepth preliminary testing for any materials that I could be sensitive to, and he paced the work according to what I could handle. The next step was a mouth guard that has dramatically helped reduce my neck tension. Wonderful experience! Excellent staff!

In my work as a craniosacral therapist I often work with clients who suffer from jaw (TMJ) issues and related headaches and neck, face and shoulder tension. Our good results are very effectively supported by Dr. Fortinsky’s work and his rigorous, wholistic approach to every patient. I regularly refer clients, friends and family to his clinic - they are very happy and relaxed dental patients now.

Sincerely,

He has taken care of my family for years and I have referred many people to him all of whom speak very positively of their experience. Dr. Fortinsky is not just a dentist. He promotes well being as well as healthy teeth. He is the best dentist I have ever known."

Rose testimonial

A recent dental emergency had me scrambling to find a new dentist - fast! Not the best time to search - but I'd wanted to find a holistically-minded dentist for some time, and had kept putting it off. Now, making a short list of possible candidates, I began by calling Dr. Fortinsky's office. From the moment Josie, the amiable receptionist, answered the phone, I knew I was in the right place, and didn't even bother calling the rest of the numbers on my list.

Arriving at my first appointment, I was immediately set at ease by the relaxed atmosphere of the office - and this despite being in acute pain and having a fear of dentists! This atmosphere of course turned out to be a reflection of Dr. Fortinsky himself. He made me feel completely comfortable and answered my many questions tirelessly - and honestly - and in as much detail as I required. All this would have been good enough, but imagine my surprise when he told me he'd call me at home that evening to see how I was doing! And - he did! Not only once, but many times over the following week until the situation was resolved. No unnecessary dental work was done, and the tooth was saved!

Since that first visit, I've been back several times regarding other matters, and the experience continues to be consistently positive.

For being a competent professional who truly cares about his work and his patients on all levels; for a pleasant and supportive environment from the moment one enters the office until the moment one leaves; and for treating people as individuals, not numbers; for all these reason I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Fortinsky to others. And, I already have.

Sincerely,

Rose

Lois Testimonial

For 40 years of my life, visiting the dentist was a painful and frightening experience. Then I came to Dr. Fortinsky and everything changed. I consistently received exceptional care, almost pain free! I really appreciate the alternative care that Dr. Fortinsky offers. Everyone is knowledgeable, professional and friendly.

Norman, my dental hygienist, has transformed tooth cleaning from a painful and terrifying experience to a pleasant and painless visit.

I observed office staff interact with an upset customer in a professional, calm and helpful manner. Office staff have given me knowledgeable advice, professional and friendly care. I always feel that I am in good hands.

I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I feel safe here.

Sincerely,

Lois
