    Employee submitted wrong code to insurance for crown repair then had me sign loan form when in fact crown was covered by insurance. If I did have to pay I would have preferred credit card as I can at least accumulate miles. Correct crown was not replaced after I talked to manager and explained the dentist came back to me and again after 20 min talk with mgr tried to convince me to use incorrect crown ordered. Assistant came in and tried to replace crown and I told her of my talk to dentist and manager apparently she was not notified.I have impending medical procedure and can not have this done till teeth fixed. Next step, state dental board. The attitude is unprofessional The dentist tosses instruments on my chest and when they spray water they don't cover you eyes and I hear conversations thru out the office , the employees are constantly trying to upgrade care and calling everybody sweetie. I have been a manager for two large copies in this country and this behavior plus constant nagging makes the worst customer service. If anyone actually cares my number is 413 237 0838 regards

    While at first our initial check in was less than stellar. Come to find out "corporate" does not submit the on line check is not looped into the respective office computer system. After an apology on my part we moved forward and everything about this office from the front desk to the back assistants, to the professionals was amazing. I appreciate the technology put forth by corporate, but they need to loop in all branch offices so that they can continue representing this company thoroughly. Highly recommend this office.

    My 11 year old daughter had to get two fillings and Dr. Amal Audi was so kind and gentle with her. When she had to go back the following week for another filling my daughter said that she would only go if Amal Audi was going to do her fill. She makes everyone feel comfortable and talked to us as if we were family.

    Overall, I like the work that is done at the Dental Associates, but the wait time is nothing short of ridiculous. The waiting starts from the time you arrive until you're actually in the chair. I had an 8:00 am appointment and I wasn't called until roughly 8:45. From there, I had x-rays done and then I waited 20 minutes or so after the that before actual work started. Aside from this, I was satisfied with the work, but I don't know that I would recommend them to anyone.

    The checkup, the xrays and the higeinist was excelent. The dentist was a bit careless or sloppy in checking my teeth. i would hesitate to undergo any treatment with this doctor for fear of being hurt. She was nice though I had some trouble understanding when she spoke. I also felt pressure to accept the treatment proposed. I could not afford all of it. In general a good staff and attention.

    I had to wait two hours for a simple check up. I understand that the office was understaffed, however it should be common sense to reschedule appointments if there are too many patients and not enough doctors. Waiting two hours for a check up that takes about 15 minutes is ridiculous.

    Ever time I go to this place the wait stinks. You are always charged for so many thing that is not funny. I have a pretty good insurance plan but you would not believe it, because everything I need done here comes one of those ladies in the front telling you your insurance don't cover this, don't cover that. Wow I am looking to change dentists. I really feel like the only person keeping me at this place is Chris. He really cares for you and your teeth! He cleans with care..

    I asked how much was my co pay i was told 500 dollars for a tooth extraction, come to find out that was the cost of the bone filler which i didn't have to have. I don't like being lied to. My co pay would have been 25 dollars. So make sure u ask all the questions, because the financial person will lie to you.
