I have and will keep recommending Dr. Houchmand without hesitation. My whole family and some friends are his patients now. I just wish I had found him sooner.
Dr. Houchmand always explains the procedures with great detail so that you will fully understand. If there are other options available he will let you know too. He cares when you have discomfort and follows up the next day when you have major dental work done. In the past, I have never had a dentist call to check up on me until I became Dr. Houchmand’s patient. The office staff are the best. They always help to accommodate my crazy schedules. Dr. Houchmand and his staff have even worked through their lunch hour for me when I needed to go in immediately.
I went to North Burnaby Dental 11 years ago unhappy with my teeth. I never wanted to smile and would try to hide my teeth, especially in photos. Dr. Houchmand has made it possible for me to smile and laugh again with confidence. I can honestly say I enjoy my visits and my kids are not afraid of the dentist. Just recently he helped a friend of mine on a tight budget.
Dr. Houchmand, thank you for your TLC, generosity and excellent work.

I am writing to share with you my experience with North Burnaby Dental since my first visit 7 years ago. Prior to my first meeting I had not been to the dentist for several years due to financial constraints and as a result of previous negative and painful experiences with dentists. Dr. Houchmand was able to relieve me of both of these apprehensions on my very first visit. After my first exam Dr. Houchmand reviewed my file with me, carefully taking the time to explain what my current needs were and what treatment I would need in the future and why. At every meeting Dr. Houchmand took the time to let me know what treatment options were available and worked with me to provide top quality service that fit with my budget at the time. I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Right from the first meeting it was very obvious that Dr. Houchmand placed his patients’ needs first and that he is highly dedicated to the care and comfort of his patients. Before every appointment Dr. Houchmand went through a consultation with me to let me know where we were in the process and what was left to be completed.
While in the chair Dr. Houchmand would thoroughly explain every procedure before he began work to ensure that I was comfortable, and that there were no unexpected surprises. Every treatment I received was delivered in the utmost comfort and relaxing environment. As a result I no longer fear the dentist office and actually look forward to seeing Dr. Houchmand and all the staff at North Burnaby Dental.
Dr. Houchmand and staff have always gone out of their way to accommodate my schedule whenever possible, often times staying late to finish an appointment or coming in early to make sure I was able to attend to my daily commitments on time.
I started my seven year journey as a person who was afraid of the dentist and unable to smile due to my insecurity about the shape of my teeth. Today I am a much happier person and take full advantage to show off my wonderful smile at every opportunity! Thank you so much for giving me my smile back.

I was referred to Dr. Houchmand in March 2004. I have had extensive dental work done IE: periodontal surgery, bridges and lastly caps. I can’t say enough about Dr. Houchmand’s excellent work, and pain free, I might add. He is very precise in his work and follow up. I wish I had gone to Dr. Houchmand a lot sooner. The staff at Burnaby Dental Group are just great and Dr. Houchmand is the best dentist I’ve ever had.
