Description of service

I have frequent need of dental services, in an emergency situation I discovered this small chain of dental clinics and was quite pleased with their services. They are in my opinion quite reasonably priced and do the work just as thoroughly as any private clinic. They offer all the usual services: fillings, cleanings, bridgework, exams, sealing, dentures, impressions for dental devices, and pre-surgical diagnostics. They also have two dedicated surgery clinics for their patients' use, as well as some weekend appointments for emergencies. They take insurance and also cash payments.

Review of Service

In my last visit I found myself there with a rapidly deteriorating molar. The treatment sheet was shown to me, with all my available options. This clinic offers both traditional metal fillings and tooth-color fillings. The latter are both more attractive and expensive. Due to the fact that I am currently uninsured, and that it was a molar tooth, I opted for the more durable metal filling. The dentist was generous with the anesthetic and completed the work in about an hour. When I was done I found that not only had he put a veneer of tooth-color filling over the metal to make it look a bit better, he charged me $20 less than my original estimate. I am used to costs going UP unexpectedly, not down, so this was a welcome surprise! He also went through the rest of my treatment plan with me and told me which teeth would need to be worked on at the next visit, because the truth is - when you get that treatment plan, they would like if you got it all done at once but nobody can afford that and you really don't NEED it. Some teeth will take priority over others so just do them in that order, and you will be fine, even if it takes months to get all the work done.


I mentioned priorities before - this brings me to another important point! Dentists speak their own language. A GOOD dentist will explain to you what their terms mean. For example, if they ever mention a 'buckle' cavity that is a priority as these types of cavities can cause a tooth to crack down the middle.

This dentist explained EVERYTHING to me, including why a tooth that I thought looked terrible was not in as much danger as the one that looked totally fine. It is all about where the cavity is. If the dentist won't tell you or gives half answers then don't let them work on you, you deserve to know what is going on in your own mouth.
