Terrible administrative services. They are seriously lacking in knowledgeable customer service regarding the Insurance Companies. They advertised free initial visit and set of X-rays, yet charged my insurance company. I did not see that mentioned in the the advertisement. Why should my insurance company have to pay for a service which is advertised as free??? Aspen Dental, another dentistry chop-shop does the same. Furthermore, the young dentist I saw inflicted a high degree of pain when he jammed the needle into my sinuses in one fell swoop. I've never had a dentist do that before and I've been to my share. They normally go slowly, administering the Novocaine as they ease the needle into the area they are numbing. That hurt more than I say describe as I was not prepared for that. It actually brought tears to my eyes right there in my chair. I am normally very stoic when it comes to being a dental patient. His work was fairly good despite.The young, disinterested receptionist would sooner be anywhere else and when I sent my husband there it was she who made it easy for him to decide to go elsewhere, which he did.The dentists are OK, except for Mr. Sadist, and the rest of the staff seems friendly enough. This place is like other chop-shops with little variance in regards to an individuals personal needs. Everyone gets run through the system the same way before they will address any problem which is inevitably during another costly visit. Where I had decided to stay away from Aspen Dental, I have found this place to be very similar. Not the worst, but I'm not real happy with them and if I find another Dentist within my Network I will probably switch. =D Happy smiles!!!
Tips & Advices
  • 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.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
