I was skeptical at first but I am very glad I went . they are a great team there staff was upbeat, friendly and professional. The Dentist was friendly and knowledgeable. They worked together and got me squared away with a tooth extraction I am going back for a filling next week. You should know they are very busy but the wait time was reasonable. A+ for this local business!

This is absolutely one of the best dental experiences I have had, and this is from someone who has had a fear of dentists for most of their life. I tend not to even go unless there is a problem. I chipped a piece off of my wisdom tooth a week ago, and had some mild pain and discomfort. I went to the Locust St. clinic first, and they insisted it could not be pulled normally, and that I would have to be seen by an oral surgeon to cut it out. I was terrified, but I assumed they knew best, since they had taken my x-rays (decided in less than 15 seconds after looking at the tooth that it would have to be surgically removed). The only problem was that the surgeons they recommended would not be able to see me for several weeks. I resigned myself to taking tylenol, and then I started looking up other dentists. I called Akron Family Dental on a Monday, and told them what I had been told by the other office, and they made an appointment for me in 2 days. Dr. John Brooke was who I saw, and he is wonderful. The best dentist I have ever been to. He was friendly and professional, and told me he would definitely be able to take care of it. He laid out all of the risks that can happen with a wisdom tooth extraction to make sure I knew and was prepared for what could happen, and then promptly went to work with the help of his assistant (another lovely person named Rachel). He had to stick me more than once with the Novocaine, and I barely felt discomfort. It took him less than 15 minutes to do work to some cavities he discovered, and to pull out the tooth (that part took less than 3 minutes tops). He was so fast and did such a smooth job, I had to ask if he had finished taking the tooth, because I didn't believe he could've taken it out so quickly and perfectly. I was thrilled...as much as you can be at the dentist's :). Highly recommended, and I hate having to go to the dentist. I would go back in a heartbeat, I just hope I don't have to for awhile.

I brought my son there back in 2005 ; never ever again ; they put him in a room n strapped him down to a board where he could not move ; hes adhd ; also they do not allow the parent inside the office while procedure is being done ; that should have been a red flag to me ; when he came out ( he had 5 caps on his baby teeth ) totally not needed ; found that out after I brought him to my dentist ; my son came outta there crying n very scared ; he told me all about what I refer to as INHUMANE treatment ; ABUSE ; it took me yrs to convince my son who is now 16 that my dentist is not gonna hurt him or tie him down ; n yes he has shared his aweful abusive experience with 2 other dentists ; this place needs to be shut down period ;very dirty also n the women at the desk were very rude to me ; ( maybe that had something to do with my race ; Being white ? they seem to be very angry women ; I feel so guilty having brought my son there n at such a young age where they remember everything

I called and made an appt. To have a tooth pulled. We decided to do temporary filling until I could afford a root canal and crown. It took six appts to fix my tooth for a crown and on the day of the 7th appt and emergency happened and I called in at 730am to reschedule it. My apt was set for 1pm. The calling staff was rude and disrespectful to my girlfriend who wanted to make sure they knew I couldn't make it. They said they were going to charge me for the inconvenience. The root canal was 1700 and the crown was going to be another 1400. I missed work for six appointments and had to reschedule one and was very disrespected by call staff.

I went to this facility for a few years, I loved the atmosphere. My last appointment the Dr decided to pull a tooth that was closer to the front, I was scared and nervous! He became upset because I questioned his decision. This was my life we were talking about, I broke down crying to his assistant and she convinced me that it was a good idea. When Dr. Brooke returned he wouldn't even speak to me! I had already been there for a few hours so the numbing medicine had wore off, when he began to extract the tooth it hurt, I raised my hands in pain and in a demeaning tone he said "put your down" took the tooth out turned on his heels and walked out, never said anything to me!

This place is awful! They mistreated my son and left marks on him from grabbing him so hardly. We walked out, and my son has been scared of doctors and dentists since. Horrible staff, assistants, dentists, and wait time.

My daughter went there to get her wisdom teeth removed. two days after was hospitalized in ICU for 5 days. I called this office four time to tell them she was hospitalized because of an infection they did and the Dr would not get on the phone with me. She has permanent nerve damage on the left side of her tongue. three weeks after the hospital a piece of the plier they use to remove the tooth came out of the incision site. we got a 3D scan done and there another piece of metal in there. hard to find another dentist that will even see her to remove the other piece and the infection is back.

Don't don't I mean don't go to this place they have u in there for 3hrs before u are seen
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
