    I was nervous because I hadn't been to the dentist in such a long time and was actually embarrassed about the condition of my teeth. Everyone there made me feel less intimidated and very comfortable. Great place to go for people like me!

    Although the office was clean, the staff was unprofessional, and did not communicate well with each other. I made an appointment over the phone for 11am, but when I arrived they said on the computer my appointment was at 12. After my appointment, I called to ask about payment for the treatment I would need, and never got a call back giving me the information I needed. I changed dentist, and never went back

    At first the assistant taking the x-rays was sort of hurting me but then she had to go to lunch and the lady that took over was much nicer and understanding about my tmj. I liked the first dentist he was nice. Now the dentist that did my exam she was blunt and straight forward but that's exactly what I needed.

    This was my first time contacting the service department to find a new dentist. The receptionist matched me perfectly with the dentist that accepted my insurance plan. I love how I received a short bio of the dentist and how the dentist office was given my contact information and contacted me shortly after my call with 1800-Dentist. Keep up the great work!

    I need to have a root canal. I keep asking for MONTHS for an appointment. And I have to call. The oral surgeon is only there once or twice a month and they don't have schedules for the next months. They called with an appointment on that same day for a few days from when I call. They doesntveowk for me. And I can't plan because they don't have next months schedule. Awful Planning. I really don't like this.

    I heard them tell 3 people in a row they needed a deep clean. I also went to another dentist for a second option of what they told me and it always all lies! My teeth are perfectly fine! Glad I didn't let those cricks work on my precious mouth! They are more worried about there bottom line, and whatever quota they are trying to make, than the patience who come through the doors.

    The wait time is always horrible. Every time i go to this detist I have to pay horrible amounts of money for this for that. I waited almost 2 hrs for them to tell me I have to pay for my visit I asked the nice lady at the front that does the finicial part of the visit before I had to wait so I could have just left instead of waiting two hrs of my day waiting for her to tall me something I asked before the visit. This person know if and when you have to pay for services before work can be done. So disappointed in this office that's for sure..

    Office was suppose to send X-rays , dr and staffed promised yet it took 6 attempts and still nothing!! They recommend services you do not need just to up sell and make selling goals. It's actually uncomfortable, I don't feel like they are honest. I'll happily return to my private practice. The wait was 1 hour and 15 min, this was my first visit, I will never return!! Cancelled my daughters appt too.. they are only friendly to gain the Dollars $$$

    The dentist and staff members who took care of me were very thorough in explanation and procedures. I'm a chicken when it comes going to see a dentist. But your staff made me feel relaxed with the care they gave, hardly no pain what so ever. I finally found a dental office to go to, I'm looking forward to my next visit. Thank you so much!

    I explained when I came in (twice) that I have a private dental plan and have been receiving regular dental care. All I wanted was a routine cleaning. I had a deep cleaning recently and now I need 4 cleanings per year. The only reason I came to the office was for a routine cleaning. I was refused a routine cleaning and told I needed a "special" cleaning, costing $150. I walked out of the office.

    I was unaware of the second door that has no welcome sign, nor was the door open. My appointment for my toddler was scheduled for 8am. When we arrived the main door was locked and two others outside stated to me...they don't open until 9am. So we waited...until I saw someone going in a side door, so I explored and walked over there only to find out that is where i was supposed to go. We were now 30 minutes late becuase I was unaware of the door that was tinted and had no signs that would let me know i should go there! I was very upset as the specialist for kids is not there often and I have a very tight work schedule. And to add to my frustration the lady had no solution and just told me that the dentist doesn't take late appointments unless i wanted to wait and if i waited she didn't know when I would be seen. Are you kidding me?? I will never come here again and I will be canceling my husbands and my own teeth cleaning appointment!!
