Dr. Pham practices at the Geary Square office. Like one of the other respondents, I never write reviews. However, I was compelled to add one here because I believe that a previous review was very misleading.Dr. Pham is the only general dentist who I have been able to place 100% trust and confidence in. He is a skilled clinician who has high standards for quality.I have found Dr. Pham to operate with nothing but honesty and integrity. He has great people skills and genuinely cares about his patients. He is more than happy to share the details of assessments with patients who are open to the discussion. It is very clear that he values patient comfort and satisfaction, as well as transparent communication. Though I live 40 minutes away, I continue to receive all of my dental care through the Geary Square office (because of Dr. Pham).The dental assistants, receptionists and other staff members are also wonderful. I highly recommend their services!!
Dr. Mitchell performed a root canal on me this morning. Great experience. Absolutely no pain! He and his staff were very attentive, patient, and courteous in my treatment and in answering my questions. I was given a complete review of the costs prior to the surgery. As with any procedure, doctors sometimes discover that the health of a tooth is not 100% evident until it is explored through surgery. Sometimes, as in my case, the doctor may determine additional work on the tooth or gum may be needed so that a crown will best adhere when inserted. The additional cost was minor, around $200 or so. I've had similar situations arise with other oral surgereons as well. So, I don't understand the poor review from Adam C.I would highly recommend Dr. Mitchell.Donna R.
I usually don't write reviews, but just had to write this one because my experience is sooooooo different than the negative reviews here - especially about Dr. Pham!!! He is my and my son's dentist. Dr. Pham is undoubtedly the best dentist I have EVER seen. He is patient, ON TIME, and always treats me like family. On top of that, he's one of the most GENUINE health professionals I've ever seen. I ALWAYS feel like he has my best interests at heart, and he has never pressured me to do a procedure just to make a buck. Really. If you're looking for a new dentist, you won't be sorry to find Dr. Pham, and you'll never see anyone else. I guess the negative reviews show you can't believe everything you find on the internet!!

- Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
- An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
- A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
- A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
- PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
- When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
- If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
- Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
- Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
- Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
- Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
- Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
- Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
- Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
- Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
- Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
