    I had my bottom wisdom teeth removed. It was painless and quick. The only downside was the office had me fill out the paperwork before anything was explained, and then after the surgery they quickly explained how to self-care my mouth post-surgery.

    This Dental Office is great. I have limited insurance coverage but they are more than fair, professional and caring. My first appointment was thorough and the Dentist was amazing, I cant remember HER name, but she did my crown build up with very little pain, and in a great comforting manner. Dr. Tom finished my crown on next visit, and he is a ROCK STAR! Perfect crown and deep cleaning, everything explained. Entire staff amazing and COOL!!!

    I had a 1:00PM Appointment that was confirmed on several occasions via several methods (email, text and phone). I arrived at 12:50, and was finally seen at 1:50. That is unacceptable. The dentist was GREAT, however, this wait time makes me never want to return.

    Every time I come here, I wait for excessive amounts of time. Going to find another dentist office. It should not take 2 hrs for a cleaning appointment.

    Dr did not appear to have patience for children. Daughter age 6 required fillings and was afraid of the novicaine injection, but while I, her father was in another room, treatment was started without anesthetic. Needless to say, this proved painful and rather than be patient or understanding, Dr threatened with, "We need to finish so you need to calm down or dad can't stay." Followed by, "Do you want a shot? I'll have to give you a shot if you don't calm down." As a parent, this was callous and not the treatment I expect from a professional. Will not be returning.

    My appointment was at 11:00 am for X-rays and cleaning. I told the front desk when I sign in that I had another appointment at 1:00 pm. I had to come back because I was kept waiting for them to finish my exam. I came back at 3:30 pm and my dental work was done 7:00 pm. I was the last patient to leave! Too many patients booked!!

    Every time I go to this office it's the same horrible wait time. One Dr doing everything! I only waited 10 minutes before having x-rays taken. However, it was downhill from there. 1 hour after x-rays before being seen by the Dr. He was nice and explained everything well (more than I can say for the Dr from my precious visit), but once it was explained and the actual procedure was completed, I wound up being there a total of 4 hours. I should not have to set aside so much of my day for the dentist.

    My appointment was 12Noon. I wasn't in the dental chair until 1:30pm. I spent one hour in the swamped waiting room. If my appointment was at 1pm or 1:15pm it would have been perfect. My treatment was routine x-ray & cleaning.

    Every time I come to make a payment I'm standing at the front desk and being ignored it takes almost 10 min for someone to ask me what I need last time the receptionist was eating hot cheetos and didn't make much eye contact with me I felt like it was really unprofessional

    Scheduled for a regular perio treatment. They decided to do a check up too when I got there. Took 2 1/2 hours - someone was actually working on me less than 30 minutes of that time. There was no hygienist so dentist had to do everything for everyone. Very poor management. This is the second time this has happened so may need to look for a new dentist.

    Well, I went in at 9am and left at 11:30am. I had two receding gum filled in and a light cleaning and that took two and half hours, which is totally ludicrous. In between treatments one of the staff tried to upsell me some treatments, which are not necessary. To top it all of the doctor didnt do a great job on the fill in that I got, it fills rough and it is uneven.

    I have never been seen on time. The wait time for a teeth cleaning is average one to two hours while the procedure takes only about ten moniutes. In the meantime, they try to pressure you into buying more treatments that they tell you you need without fully educating the patient on the treatments.
