How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Portman is amazing best around !!!!!!! She is so good with her work and take great pride. She wants you  to be happy and it be pain free.  I could not be any happier with my experiences at ismile.  I avoided the dentist for several years even though I have insurance.   The moment I called to make my first appointment  I knew this was the place.   The reception is great, super helpful scheduling.  Little to no wait time at all. I  I have visited about 8 times now.  I am having intensive work done on my mouth. 15 plus fillings, a crown.  And they offer profession zoom whitening !!! The staff and environment is so welcoming.  Not to mention the place is spotless. I recommend Dr Portman to anyone looking to improve  their smile and feel better about their teeth. If you have been avoiding the dentist and have that gut fear of going I promise Dr Portman at ismile will help you through that.  I love my new smile !!!!!!!

How was your experience with the doctor?This office is the best. The staff are great, appointments are kept, music, tv, wifi, complimentary beverages, all a block away from one of the busiest subway stops in the city but you'd never guess that once inside. Like many people, I don't look forward to a dental visit, but Dr. Portman and the whole team make every visit not only painless and tolerable, but enjoyable. Do yourself and your oral hygiene a favor and book your next check up here.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was in and out off the office for a dental cleaning. It was so fast that I thought something was wrong because I normally have to sit and wait at offices, sit and wait in the chair, sit and wait for the dentist. Total time there was less than 45 minutes.

How was your experience with the doctor?The staff here is by far the nicest and most professional that I have ever experienced. From the minute I walk in, I was greeted with warm smiles. The receptionists are very attentive and helpful. They walk you through the steps and guide you through the entire process. They explain all of their dental lingo, which is important for some of us not in the field and who have no idea what's happening. The results were phenomenal. I highly recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had to wait 45 minutes past my appointment time and the new hygienist that called me in said "Whenever you're ready." I've been ready! I've been coming to this office for a few years now, but this is the first time I wasn't seen at the end by Dr. Portman. Maybe she was already gone since it was at the end of the day? My previous visits have always been great, but this time was not as good.

How was your experience with the doctor?This place is okay. Feel like I received better treatment when I was a new customer. I have gone back a couple of times and feel the treatment is not as optimal as when I started. Appointments get pushed back or rescheduled. Overall an okay place that I am sure others will enjoy but for me, it has been an up and down experience : (

How was your experience with the doctor?Being so impressed by my previous visits, i brought my mother here. She had some work done and was told to come back for more, so I  made an  appointment for her on the 12th of June.  She lives in a different  continent and had to fly thousands of miles to see Dr Portman. I specifically  asked that her file be reviewed from her previous visits in  order for an accurate diagnosis be made so she could plan and estimate the duration of her stay and the treatment  she would require. I was told it would be a 2 visit procedure  and would be completed within 3 weeks. After spending thousands on a ticket,  she arrives and is told it would be a 4 visit process spaced out. She doesnt  live here and has to return back. The procedure would require her flying back and forth,  thereby costing  4 airtickets totaling close to $10000 . This could have all been  avoided had they actually looked at her file and given us an accurate diagnosis and time frame. Now her trip was for nothing and she now has to look elsewhere, closer to home for this procedure.  Thanks for wasting our time.

How was your experience with the doctor?At my last dentist visit, to a new dentist, I was told I needed a deep cleaning, had 1 cavity and had to have a cap replaced. I knew he was just trying to make some $$$&. I needed to find a new dentist so I made an appointment for an exam and cleaning at Ismile since the reviews were decent and they are 1 block away from where I live and they take my insurance. The hygienist was very friendly and nice and took my xrays and cleaned my teeth. She did a speedy and thorough job great job and my teeth felt great. She spoke to me about my xrays and then they doctor did as well. My teeth were fine. No cavities abs no deep cleaning needed. No mention of cap replacement either. I will definitely go back again and highly recommend!

How was your experience with the doctor?I am SO happy I found this place. I usually hate going to the dentist but the hygienist who cleaned my teeth was a sweetheart and made sure to not cause any pain or discomfort. Dr. Portman was punctual, kind and very interested to find the best solution for my teeth. Also the office is spotless and they have mini TVs you can watch Netflix on during the cleaning. Happy that this is now my regular dentist.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Portman and the staff at iSmile were so friendly and professional! I was a little apprehensive because it had been awhile since I’d had a cleaning and check up. The atmosphere was so chill, but they let me know I need to keep flossing tho. Firm, yet polite, just what you need in a dentist.
