Very friendly, courteous staff. However, I wasn't pleased with the way they operate. I called to make an appointment for 1/16/15, fell on ice, chipped front tooth. Was told that they had an orthodontist on site. I was evaluated by a dentist, and I was told I would need a root canal before the bonding, I also needed an Orthodontist evaluation. The orthodontist was not there until the next day, Friday, Do you think they could have scheduled my appointment for Friday instead, so that I could see both the same day? Of course they could have, but did not. I scheduled an appointment for 2pm, the following day to see the orthodontist. I was evaluated by the orthodontist. I was under the impression that the orthodontist would at least move the tooth, just for relief, and to enable me to eat until I could see the the Endodontic doctor who would perform the root canal that I needed before the bonding and bridge work. The orthodontist informed me that another orthodontist would be taking over for her and I needed to make an appointment to see this new person who would take over my care. Do you think someone called me between 9-1:30 to tell me that I should re-schedule or give me the option, since this orthodontist wouldn't be following up throughout the duration? Of course not. Once informed that nothing could be done due to the sensitivity of my teeth, and my need for the root canal prior to anything else, I refused to make the appointment. I informed them that there was no need to follow up with the new orthodontist until I had the root canal. You want the fee of 3 office visits and no work? The new orthodontist would have repeated the same, citing the need to have the root canal first, so what was the need presently? None. No one was going to do anything before the root canal, so maybe they felt I needed to hear that three times? Ridiculous. I will return after the root canal, but before the cap is placed before the new orthodontist consult. Also, they require too much paperwork. I was handed another form at the follow up visit, asking for information that they already had the day before, what changed in 24 hours? Patterson Ave office, Baltimore, MD.

Also Ms. Green for helping me to get in and out on an emergency visit you rock , thank you Patterson office for having the ultimate care....

Dr. Scott Hubert DDS
Fantastic Dentist.Before going to Dr. Hubert I had hated dentists, in part because I never had a good experience. After 3 years without seeing a dentist I knew that I had to get my crappy teeth checked out and after much research decided to try Dr. Hubert.He and his team were fantastic; I continued going regularly for 4 years and even referred two other patients. The only reason I left is because I left Baltimore this summer. In fact, leaving the only good dentist I've ever had was something I considered when deciding whether to leave Baltimore at all, and I was very sad to leave this practice. Having just attempted to see a new dentist I was reminded of how much I miss Dr. Hubert and his team, and I wanted to leave this review to give the highest recommendation for a dentist I could (and as someone who need frequent painful procedures at the dentist office I think that means a lot!).

The best dentist office we have ever been to. The staff was so friendly and attentive to us and our son. They have a very welcoming and child friendly environment. The staff really cares about it's patients and makes it a fun visit for kids. If all locations for this franchise are like this one then all other children dentist offices mind as well close their doors now because they will NOT be able compete! We can't thank the staff enough for everything they did. We were a walk-in appointment on a Saturday and the office was busy, yet it still turned out to be the fastest dentist office experience we have ever had. Only problem we have, is there is not enough of these franchise locations in the area but It is completely worth the 30 min drive for us! :)

Though this office is close to my residence and the people are very professional, the wait times are ridiculous. On my last visit I made an appt for my children for 4:15pm. Our names weren't called until 5:20pm and only to sign the waiver for care and get X-rays "started". My 19 mth old son needed to be changed so I went to my car to change him and move my car closer to the office door. My 13 yr old called me to tell me they couldn't be seen because I wasn't in the building and they were about to close. At 5:20 they knew they would close at 6 and should have rescheduled appointments before or when I first arrived. This is a big inconvenience because I have to now wait for a make up appointment for my children and have waisted 2hrs out of my evening.

All I can say is this office is not at all what it once was when it first opened. Overall the staff are friendly however there are a few who belittle the company standards. Appointments are NEVER on time, always off by HOURS. Understaffed and have way to many appointments scheduled for the same day and time all day just in case they have no shows. So if everyone shows up that office is a disaster & not enough seats while you wait for hours. I've been sent home and ask to reschedule several times with excuses. My latest experience caused me to look into seeking a NEW dental office for myself and 3 children so if you are looking for an unprofessional,understaffed and over appointed,inaccurate office this one is surely for you.

The office is very well organized and clean. I have a love and hate relationship with dentists but from the moment the staff started attending me I knew it was going to be great experience. Front desk lady, Deja was very friendly. Bella super sweet lady. Her sense of humor made it much easier to relax. The hygienist Michelle was gentle and informative. She left my teeth feeling beyond squeaky clean! Dr. Whang is BEYOND amazing!! I had a temp crown done as well with Dr.Whang alongside with Cherrie. Cherrie knows what she's doing with those crown molding and getting the fit just right! The staff showed compassion and care through out my visit! Kool Smiles totally ROCKS!! Definitely going back!

Today I had a dental visit for my son whos 7. The Dental assistant Ms.Angel who worked with Payton was so amazing. She made sure he was taken care of and comfortable throughout which made the visit 10 times easier especially dealing with a nervous child. She explained parts of his procedure that I didnt understand and that made me feel better as a parent ...This is the second time he's had to have work done and luckily the second time he had her as a dental assistant and Im so pleased! She works so well with children! I would reccommend this place a million times especially if everyone had the pleasure to come in contact with her!

Charles Street Dental
Twenty years ago my dentist was scheduled to extract a wisdom tooth that was killing me. An accident landed him in the hospital. So I went to Charles Street Dental. Dr. Madani told me she could save the tooth. And she did.I have found her primary goal is to save one’s natural teeth, or as much of one’s natural teeth as is possible. For example, dentists routinely do a root canal when they crown a tooth. Dr. Madani will often try to save the nerve extending the life of the natural tooth. At the same time saving some bucks for her patient. A good place to save some bucks. A good place to save your teeth.
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.
