What Our Clients Love About Us

  • I highly recommend Uptown Dental Trafalgar. My experience on each visit has been professional, punctual and very efficient. They are progressive in their approach and compassionate to any requests and inquiries that are brought forward. The office staff is wonderful and the hygienists are thorough in their appts. The Dentists are highly skilled and the overall experience has always been positive. I recommend Kler dental without any hesitation to anyone looking for a dentist.

  • Have been going to this dental clinic for years now and have always had great and professional service. The whole staff are very friendly and accomodating. I started going there when I was living in Oakville over 5 years ago and have have been in Mississauga over 5 years now and still go to them because I can always count on a decent experience. Just an excellent all around dental clinic.
