“This is my heartfelt thanks to my wonderful team of Flo and Gale, who make every visit so much fun. I am so grateful that my good friend Judi recommended you to me. It’s good to know that you’ll be there for me and my smile for years to come. Many, many thanks again. I think you folks are terrific! Carry on your good work!”
- Sandy M.
“Dr. Lockhart, I have been a patient of yours for over 20 years (maybe longer) and you have provided a level of service to me and my family members which I will be forever grateful for. Thank you for your professionalism, knowledge and great heart.”
“I strongly recommend Dr Florence Lockhart and her team for your dental care.
I have a genetic condition which means my teeth and gums are compromised, no matter how diligent my habits of dental hygiene. As a result I have had far more encounters with dentists than most people dare imagine, both here in Canada, and in the UK. Whenever I have to move, I dread finding a dentist, because while most dentists are proficient, very few rise above and beyond the pale norm.
Dr Lockhart is that rare excellent exception. Her attention to detail is remarkable, the results are undeniable, and the experience is as pleasant as possible. Dental surgery is never fun, but Dr Lockhart and her team have developed a very effective stress and pain management protocol which makes the experience as easy as I’ve ever known it to be. The entire team is helpful and good humoured and I feel understood and supported throughout every procedure.
Dr Lockhart is that rare dentist whose compassion and understanding rival her exceptional technical skill and expertise. I can honestly tell you that she is one of the best dentists I’ve ever met… and that’s really saying something.”
- Kerry G.
“I can’t imagine any dentist being more patient oriented than Dr. Lockhart and I am continually impressed by her commitment to learning and applying the latest in dentistry. I really trust her and her team and can relax and enjoy my appointments.”
- Barbara S.
“I was surprised and pleased by the thorough examination of not just my teeth but also my head during my semi-annual check-up and cleaning. Dr Monika Schneiderova discovered skin cancer on my forehead which is now being successfully treated. If it weren’t for her great attention to detail, I would not have seen a dermatologist until the cyst was much larger. I am grateful for the early detection and I encourage everyone to see the benefits of this type of exam by a dentist.”
- Yvonne M.
“I am proud to say I have been a patient of Dr Lockhart’s for a few years. Not only is she an amazing and talented dentist, she goes above and beyond for her patients. There is no one I trust more when it comes to my teeth!”
- Crystal J.
“I just want to thank Dr.Lockhart, Gail and all of the staff at Arbutus North Dental for all of the professional and wonderful care. A 2 hour, 15 minute appointment, 2 crowns and a filling, very efficiently and well done, and they had my hands swaddled in paraffin and cozy mittens, blanket on, hilarious movie (they could hear me laughing in the reception area), what can I say- great experience!!! Yes, you may laugh, great experience at the dentist, but it’s true! Thanks again for everything, each and everyone of you, for the fantastic care and attention!”
“Florence has been my dentist for well over 10 years. She is very precise in her work. I have referred several friends who were afraid of dentists given their past experience – they are now all advocates. Florence identified that I had a dead tooth and needed a mouth guard when I first went to see her – no other dentists had identified these problems.
She loves her work and is fun to see.”
- Lori Y.
“I came to see Dr. Lockhart after losing the majority of my front two teeth when I fainted unexpectedly on a business trip abroad. After spending a night in a foreign ER getting stitches, I travelled back to Vancouver and straight to Dr. Lockhart. I cannot say enough good things about that experience. Not only was she gentle, kind, and understanding about my ordeal, but she also did an absolutely amazing job fixing my teeth. I am very happy with my new teeth, they look and feel great. Even my relatives cannot tell which teeth I had broken! I would definitely recommend Dr. Lockhart to anyone who has the unfortunate experience of a dental emergency!”
- Jen D.
“I actually look forward to seeing the dentist now for the first time in 65 years”
- Barb MacNaughton
“Just wanted to take the opportunity to say how pleased I am with Arbutus North Dental, and all of you who make us patients feel VIP. You have restored my confidence which has affected me deeply!”
“Dr Lockhart is one of the most highly skilled professionals of any field that I have had the pleasure to work with! I think that both Dr Lockhart & her staff ensure that the client has the best possible care and is educated so they can make informed choices in a genuinely caring atmosphere! Until I met Dr Lockhart I feared the dentist, since meeting her I no longer need to have my dental work done under general anaesthetic!”
- Carin Fuerniss
“Dr Lockhart & her staff not only take care of our families dental needs but when we go to her office we feel like we are seeing family!”
- Helena Brennert
“It’s a pleasure coming to your office. All staff go above and beyond to be welcoming and to make me feel comfortable during all aspects of my treatment. Your office rates a ten out of ten.”
“Thank you for the friendly and efficient service. Dr Lockhart and her team were certainly very skillful which we appreciate very much, and value her easy manner in relating to people. She has made going to the dentist an enjoyable experience.”
- Eugene & Gaby Chung
“Everyone is excellent at your clinic. I love going to the dentist (didn’t use to!)”

“I waited for 15 years to have my veneers done because I wanted to find a dentist that I could trust. It was worth the wait. Florence Lockhart did an exceptional job (in fact, she exceeded my expectations). I should know because I’m a dentist. I could have had any of my colleagues do the work, but I chose Florence because of her attention to detail and comprehensive approach. Rarely does a day go by that someone doesn’t comment on my smile.”
“She is an extremely knowledgeable and kind dentist. Of all dentists I have ever met she is the most fun and enjoyable to be around. She is also highly professional and makes a point of keeping up to date on the newest technologies and methods available. She makes a point of taking extraordinary care of her patients and takes the time to ensure that every detail is attended to. Two thumbs up. (Staff at her office are also great) ”
“Dr. Lockhart puts a lot of effort and knowledge to ensure that her work is not only done with excellence but from the cosmetic point of view it is a success. She is fantastic with adults as well as with children. Thank-you Dr. Lockhart, what a jewel you are! ”
“Dr. Florence Lockhart is the best dentist I ever had. She is very knowledgeable, caring, friendly, and welcoming. She takes great pride in her work. She makes sure that her staff are also top-notch and friendly as well. The whole office has a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. Dr. Lockhart carefully assesses her patients’ needs, explains the work required, and makes sure you understand what is happening. She is incredibly gentle and caring and is exceptional in the time and patience she shows everyone. I was very squeamish and fearful of dentists before meeting her, as I’ve had very unpleasant dental experiences in the past with impatient egotistical dentists who seem more interested in getting you out of the office quickly. Dr. Lockhart cured me of my fear of dentists with her gentle understanding nature. I travel from outside Vancouver to see her. I tried dentists closer to home but nobody comes close to Dr. Lockhart. Bravo!”
“She is a very caring dentist. Her number one priority seems to be not to cause pain. She will over-do the freezing just to make sure (which I like). Takes quite a while to get into. Takes months to see the hygienist! I travel across the city to see her! ”
“My husband and I live in Langley and eventhough her office is in Vancouver, Dr. Lockhart has been our dentist for over 10 yrs. We wouldn’t consider going to anyone else because Dr. Lockhart is a very knowledgeable and takes pride in her work, is very kind and compassionate resulting in a great “chair side manner”; she takes a personal interest in you and your family; doesn’t rush you through, and spends time explaining the procedures, etc.. We are extremely pleased and feel very fortunate to have Dr. Florence Lockhart as our family dentist. ”
“Dr Lockhart is a fantastic Dentist. She is very caring and helpful. Her work is fantastic, I have never had any problems after any procedure. I do not have a dental plan anymore so she keeps the costs down and reasonable. I would highly recommend Dr Lockhart. My parents also see her and are very happy. We all travel from outside of the Vancouver area for our appointments. They are well worth the trip. Her office and hygenists are also wonderful. ”
“Having great energy and a great smile is key to my success with clients. In my line of work, having metal braces were just not an option. Invisalign’s health benefits help me feel great and no one can even tell I am wearing them. The team at Arbutus North Dental Centre were informative and helpful through the entire process. I would highly recommend them to anyone.”
~ Leighton S.
“I am so glad I made the investment to go with aligners rather than metal braces. I have heard stories of people having food stuck in there metal braces, and I didn’t want to go through that. When I go out to eat all I have to do is remove my aligners. They work so well with my lifestyle I barely even notice they are there.”
