Description of service

I paid for a basic dental cleaning for an adult. No X-rays, no fluoride, no frills. Just a basic cleaning.

Review of Service

The dentist was covered by my insurance company, and I was very pleased to learn that my dental coverage entirely covered the fees he charged. I paid nothing out of pocket. In return, he did a good job - checked my teeth for cavities, cleaned them, polished them, and talked about everyday things very calmly during the process. He was quiet and courteous, very nice. I was a little surprised when I walked into the office that the person who answered the phone and greeted me then took me back, cleaned my teeth, and checked them - but I found that the office consists of two partners who work together and prefer having a very low overhead so that they can offer good service at a low rate and still profit moderately. I will go back in a month to the same dentist without hesitation.


1. Make sure that your insurance company covers the cost of services and that there are no hidden charges; otherwise, you may find yourself paying an unexpectedly large amount out of your own pocket, which can be quite unpleasant.
