professional & friendly
OK, I admit it, I hate going to the dentist. That said, I have never had a bad experience at Gillis Dentistry. Every member of staff has always been unfailingly polite from front of house to the dental techs/hygienists and dentists. Any time I have had to have work done it is always explained in detail, if I so wish, and the work itself has been excellent. Thank you all.

Professional, caring and convenient
I have been a patient Dr. Gillis for over 15 years, since I moved to Kingston. Due to a tramtic childhood dental memory, even the thought of going to the dentist always set me into an state of anxiety and fear! Until I started at Gillis Dentistry!
The staff at Gillis Dentistry are always kind, understanding and outline what is going to happen and what to expect. All the newest equipment make the entire process quick and efficient.
Over the years all the staff have worked closely with me to concur my fears and make me comfortable at the dentist again. Very convenient location, evening and weekend hours and direct insurance plan billing may also available.

Dentistry to my - very real - medical relief.
I've just had the best experience of my life in a dentist's chair; my regular dentist decided that I had three teeth that needed extraction as he could not repair/fill the remains any further than he had done over a period of 9 months prior. In fact he said that my teeth were so badly worn down that he had to refer me to a specialist in "difficult" dental surgery.
Over the next four weeks I had these badly eroded teeth extracted by Dr Robert Gillis - all were pulled with great skill and obvious experience in brief sessions without much gauze-packing to deal with the minor bleeds. I needed no Tylenol as there was no pain! In fact doctor Gillis is so adept with the freezing process that my gums were rendered painless !

Fast friendly service - MY DENTIST wow
Very professional, In less than 40 minutes I was in at noon had an extraction and a plate fitted. Thinking I was going to spend an afternoon in pain. I was able to stop and take my daughter to lunch. Great friendly service.

Excellent, Professional and Caring Service
A thank you to Doctor Gillis' son for his professional care and good work after I broke off most of my tooth. The staff is very respectful and the procedure was very efficient and painless for me.
- Linda J .
Quaility, professional and friendly
The receptionist(s) are absolutely the nicest, most fun-loving individuals any dental office could ask for. The dental assistants were funny, yet competent & courteous. As for the dentist(s), they are pleasent, calming, intellegent professionals whom I would recommend to any one of my family and friends...Oh, and I shall not forget to mention the dental hygienist who was an absolute delight despite the constant reenforcement on the importance of flossing (which is kind of their job), but because of it I purchased hundreds of floss sticks. So, thank you Gillis Dentistry & Associates for helping me keep my smile white and shiny!
Services rendered: oral check up and cleaning, and fillings.

Amazing dental office for VERY anxious patient!
I am an extremely anxious patient and I mean EXTREMELY ANXIOUS! All of the staff are knowledgable, patient and caring. Everyone goes above and beyond to help me feel comfortable. Explaining treatment plan, check on me during work and my Dentist (Dr. N. Gillis) called after hours to check-up on me after my procedure. He even left a cell phone number just in case I needed it!
* Great Dentist & support staff.
* Calm and friendly dental office
* Evening Hours - work around your schedule
If your are scared of the dentist, you don't have to be here.
- Dana .
I have been coming here since I was young and it's great to see how much they have grown! Great staff and friendly environment !!
- Danica .
Felt Relaxed and treated Professionally
My dentist was great and had a way about him that just made me feel relaxed and that I was in good hands. THough the dental assistant wanted a music channel on the TV, my dentist prevailed and we had the sport's channel ;) All in all I left feeling that I was well looked after.
- Pierre .
Everyone is very friendly, polite and professional
The practice recently hired a new hygenist from Quebec, whose name I suddenly don't remember, but she's very sweet and was extremely conscientious about minimizing the pain and discomfort of my twice annual cleaning. Thank you.
- Roberta .
Won't go anywhere else!!!
I have had Dr. Gillis as a dentist for quite some time now! He was extremely experienced, comforting and professional. I have always been terrified of the dentist and each time I have to go they do their very best to make me feel comfortable. Even after they switched and are now housing more than one dentist, they are great! I have recently had Dr. Chan I believe I her name is. Wow! She is great! Extremely friendly, makes each process quick as she can, and always always makes sure that you feel at ease with the next step (which I appreciate, because even though I'm almost 23 years old, I get as scared as some toddlers!)
I wouldn't think about going to another dental office!!!
Take my word for it, I've been a patient there for over 8 years :)

Dr Gillis is an excellent dentist, calm and friendly!

Happy to be a patient of Gillis Dentistry!
I am so very pleased to have found Gillis Dentistry after a bad experience with another dentist in Kingston.
They have completed my root canal, and fixed a filling,and growing cavity that was not done properly by my former dentist. I will be returning to them for my wisdom teeth in the near future, and any other work that will need to be done.
To further explain why I am satisfied..They are so pleasant from the receptionist to the dentist, and they do excellent work. They explain everything they are doing, and make sure you are comfortable while they are preforming the procedure.
I have only ever had two dentist previous to this one,who is Dr. Chen, and I honestly can say I have never felt more confident in knowing I am getting the best care for my teeth as I am now!
Thank you to all the employees at Dr. Gillis Dentistry!!
- Lisa Marie .
This is a great place to have dental work. I really didn't like going to the dentist years ago. Now it is a pleasure. They are friendly, courteous, professional. it is a positive experience from a checkup to cleaning to having dental procedures done. My wife was terrified of dentist from her early experience with them now she is positive about going..
- Glenn .
Despite the fact that going to the dentist for me has never been enjoyable in the past, I can now say that I am not as terrified to go! My hygienist, Brigit (spelling?) is the best at making me feel relaxed, and offers suggestions to make my visit as comfortable as possible. All the ladies at the front desk are so pleasant, and professional, and I love the new email appointment notification, as I never remember to call back to confirm appointments!. The new renovations are beautiful, and congratulations on having wonderful staff, and for easing my fear of going to the dentist. I wish I had been going to you years ago. :)
- Deborah .
Our visit could not have gone better.
My 8 year old daughter does not even blink an eye when I tell her she has a dentist appointment. Every visit we are greeted by their lovely staff and made to feel so comfortable. They are extremely professional but friendly as well. I will stick with Dr.Gillis and his staff for as long as they are in business.
- Meagan .
Pleasantly surprised! Honestly
As a person with serious dentist related anxiety I am unable to give higher than 4 stars. That being said, knowing that I was going to have an old filling removed, then replaced, plus having part of my tooth rebuilt it was a surprisingly non-traumatic experience. Each part of the procedure was explained to me prior to it being done, even though I was unable to talk Dr. Chen asked me frequently if I was OK, as did her assistant.
I don't want it to have to be repeated in a hurry but it won't put me off for 18 years as happened after a bad experience many years ago, another place a different dental practice.
Thank you to all concerned for making a difficult time for me much better than I thought it would/could be.

Every time I visit Dr. Gillis' office I am always met with wonderful smiles and kindness. The dentists are great too. The whole office puts one at ease, and that is a great place to start. I have never been left waiting and my service has always been the most professional.

I truly enjoy visiting Dr. Gillis Dentistry very much. from the moment I walk in the door I feel welcomed. All the staff know my nane and I know most of them as well. very high standard of professionalism. They look after all my dental needs and I would never consider going anywhere else.

- Louise .
The new waiting area is very relaxing with the music. The nature murals in the dental rooms continues the sense of relaxation. Knowing that we can request the music in the dental rooms will make in comfortable for patients with an uncomfortable emotion of being at the dentist's office.
The staff are first class: experienced, tactful, and reassuring.
- Norm .
You won't find better!
The staff at Gillis Dentistry could not be better! From the welcoming smiles and greeting, to the gentle and compassionate treatment you receive in the chair, the service is outstanding. Dr. Gillis makes difficult procedures seem like a breeze! He is patient and thorough, explains as he goes, takes time for questions, and always makes sure his patient is comfortable. No matter what dental work I need done, I have no worries as long as I go to Gillis Dentistry. I highly recommend their services.

The Whole "Tooth"
While I don't always look forward to having dental work done, I do look forward to the excellent care and treatment I receive from Dr. Gillis and his colleagues and staff. My mouth is healthier because of them & that makes me very happy indeed.
The new office is a treat for the eyes, and a lovely place to be.
- Nancy .
My daughter and I aren't exactly model patients due to dentist fears, however Dr Gillis and staff are so welcoming and so relaxing our fears are gone and changing Denistry is not an option. As soon as you walk in the door a personal and professional approach is taken and remains with you for your whole stay, not only are you a client but you become a friend. The experiences are always professional, detailed work, administratively sound, positive, and financially worth every buck.
- Viola .

Fantastic Visits, Professional and great Atmosphere
As a kid, going to the dentist was always dreadful, well not anymore. With the pleasant staff and constant concern for my well being during any procedure, this has been a great experience for me over the last 10 years. I have recommended this to many of my friends.

Dr. Gillis's office as a whole is an Exceptional team!!!!
I am always greeted by professional, friendly, accommodating office admins upon arrival; so warm and helpful. Willing and efficient in answering all your questions, and if they aren't certain of the answer, they will find one for you by tapping into their available resources.
Dr. Gillis is a very gentle, warm and grounded Dentist, exactly what is required when coming to the dentist-let's face it, who likes a trip to the dentist. He is very confident in his quiet manner, and professional in his approach. I truly admire is reserved, conservative approach with my dental care. Like the saying goes "if it isn't broke, don't fix it!" He is open to listening to your concerns and will certainly take your considerations, as a patient and owner of your dental, into account.
Their automated billing system with my insurance is flawless!
I would highly recommend this office to your family, especially if you have children who are a little nervous!!! The warmth of this team will put them right to ease!
