You were great! I am sorry I don’t remember their names, but the receptionist and scheduler were very helpful in getting me into see the Doctor. The staff is very accommodating. I had made the appointment, then cancelled it by leaving a message, then I attempted to reschedule it by voice mail. Even with all my wonkiness the staff is very accommodating. Thank you so much.

Let me start by saying how afraid I am of just walking into a dentist office! I am terrified to the max! But the kindness and sincere compassion of EVERYONE..from the minute you walk in…from the reception, to the X-ray person, dental hygienist and the dentist, all are wanting your experience there to be calm and relaxed. This was my first time in a very long time to go to the dentist. I chose Phat Ly, D.M.D. to be my dentist. He was so kind and made sure that I was comfortable and explained everything. The staff is also very kind and friendly. I would recommend them to anyone!! All I can add is that their customer service is is through the roof!!

Linda Cline

If you are looking for for a VIP treatment, this is the place to come! Everyone is so kind and caring! Dr. Ly is the best dentist I have ever been to! If you are looking for a painless experience, you have to come here and see Dr. Ly!!

Dr Ly is amazingly patient with my anxiety. When I first came to Wendel I had to be fully sedated for any work except cleanings. Through Dr Ly’s guidance I was able to get a filling with only Nitrous, That’s a huge accomplishment.

Sue S. (3/28/17)

Today I had one of the best experiences with a Dentist. Number one, I didn’t even know he had given me the shot that I needed to numb me for my crown. I was stunned! Then he went on and did his magic with my tooth. No pain, great feel, and it looks wonderful! THEN…Dr. Rick filled a gap between two of my front teeth with a bonding technique that left me so happy. I am a happy camper. My broken tooth is fix good as new, and my smile looks like it did so many years ago. This guy rocks. I’m a Dr. Rick Ganji fan. If you’re looking for a fabulous Dentist this is the guy for you. Seriously.

Kathleen F (2/18/17)

I recently went to the Vancouver location for my first visit for x-rays, cleaning, and a filling, all in one day. For such a busy office, all of my appointments were right on time and the staff were friendly and helpful. I had some insurance issues from the start and it was handled efficiently and generously. My technician spent time explaining correct brushing and flossing practices and was very gentle with my exam. Dr. Ganji worked on my filling and I couldn’t have asked for a more genuine, patient, and caring doctor. This was the first time I had gotten a needle without a topical and didn’t feel it! He was quick with the procedure but took extra time to go over information with me. He made me feel like I was the only patient in his office, although it was extremely busy. I loved my visit and look forward to going back. Thank you to everyone I met that day, it was a wonderful experience!

For years I avoided going to the dentist. But finally had to. Made my appointment with Dr Gamji at Wendel Dental. I have been to several dentists in my lifetime and was afraid of the dentist. But not anymore. I have had nothing but the most professional and caring treatment. Dr Gamji carefully described every treatment and made me feel part of the process. I had a challenging problem and he did an amazing job. I will never avoid going to my dentist again. Thank you. Mary

Debra (12/15/16)

My visit to Wended Dental was for a cleaning and a new crown. Dr.Ganji,DDS is a great dentist. He is efficient and very gentle. I did not have any pain or after discomfort. His hygienist is Shelly and she did a great job. The dentist office is not my special place, but this was a great expexperience. Hubby is up next and he white knuckles the dental chair, I guarantee we will be back. 5 stars!

Jenni (6/1/16)

I have been a Wednel paient since I was a little girl. From Hiddenbrook to Dr. Kris in Salmon Creek, I’ve never had a negative experience or felt like I was “just a number”. I’ll never step foot elsewhere. Dr. Kris is so friendly and non-judgemental. All her assistants work quickly and gently to get me out in no time at all!

Heather (12/13/2016)

I have been a patient at Wendel for over a decade. My hygienist Jan is wonderful, gentle, and friendly; My dentist Dr. Ganji is excellent. His anesthetic injections are painless, in fact one time I didn’t even realize I was receiving anesthetic until over half way through the injection. His treatment is solid and I appreciate his approachable manner, the extra time he spends with me explaining my treatment options, and his personal value of continuing education. I’m extremely picky about health care providers and this team, including the office staff, is wonderful. They work hard to provide me with quality care and I am confident in their ability. They are particularly good at working with anxious patients like me. I love that they’ve been a family business for over 40 years. I highly recommend this practice.

This is what I have been looking for when it comes to dental care everything about Wendel Dental Centre in Salmon Creek is outstanding. The office staff as soon as I walked in I felt at home and knew I was being taken care of by a group of people who cared about me.Then then the dental hygienist Nancy explained for the first time in my life what she was doing .You know when they call out the numbers about your teeth I have an understanding what it means. Then came in DR.Kristine Pham she was the best of the best no Dentist has ever displayed such knowledge I am no young person so I have seen many Dentist .I had a Job that moved me around the country and the world. I can tell you I will have no one else do my Dental Care .I was made to feel that I was a priority its nice to find this type of care today.

Constance S. (8/19/15)

My past history has been a nightmare on many of occasions but finally found a dentist that has made all the bad ones a memory.

I’ve had serious problems with my teeth and Dr. Mike Sparrow has been excellent in his work on me, not only a great Dentist but has a reassuring manner about him that leaves you feeling totally confident in his abilities.

I can only say that there should be more dentist of his caliber and professionalism.

Going to the dentist now is not a nightmare now, but a relief knowing you are in good hands.

Sanjay (7/23/15)

“I was blown away by my experience at Wendel! I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 7 years and my experience was as if I was at a Marriott, not a dental office. Everyone from the start to the end of my visit was friendly, personable and made me feel at home, like family on my 1st visit. Bonnie was one of the warmest receptionist I’ve ever met! Jolie was professional and made me comfortable asking questions. The two receptionist and business ladies helped me with open arms even though I was the last patient, I didn’t feel that were rushing me out. Great culture in the building, everyone seems to enjoy working here which makes me want to come back and tell all of my family and friends! You guys rock. I look forward to my future visits. Michelle was so patient and thoughtful with x-rays. Shelley my hygienist explained all the procedures really well and answered all my questions. She felt like I’ve known her for years , so easy to talk to. Dr. Ganji really wanted to fix the problem and get rid of the sensitivity. He was courteous and asked how I felt, didn’t just go through the motions. You just don’t find personal service like this anymore.”

I want to take a minute and show my gratitude for Dr. Sparrow. I have been his patient for the last year. He is by far the best dentist I have ever have! He is:
Informative- he takes the time to thoroughly explain the procedures which allow me to be an informed patient.
Chair side manner-always positive, explains what he is going to do next and is very personable.
Treatment- he is very skilled, well paced and always get fantastic results.

It is my pleasure to be cared for by him.
