Brown Family Dentistry
My experience at Brown Family Dentistry was excellent. I have a lot of anxiety about going to the dentist and the staff really put me at ease. In addition to the staff being extremely kind and professional, their services are affordable as well. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, unlike many dentists office. In addition they always work hard to work with my schedule to make appointments, even at a very short notice. I really can't say enough good things about Brown Family Dentistry. Best dental office in Southwest Michigan!

Terrible staff. I'm not the first to say this either, just check the other rating websites. Due to the terrible receptionist, I'm paying $1,000 out of pocket because she told me my insurance would cover it all without even checking because she assumed I was under 19 (I'm not). My insurance said I will have to hire a public defender because I'm in the right, but I have to get someone to argue that. I'm considering it. But as of now I'm forced to pay about $150 by the end of this month or face late fees for something I was told was covered by the terrible receptionist. Dental work was A+ by the doctor, but it was all ruined by the terrible choice in rude and lazy staff. Look at every other review, I'm not the first to deal with the awful staff. All in all, the experience is a 1 star. I would leave 0 if I could because I don't think you should go to a place where you're lied to so they can make money. I'm sorry that such good dental work is being shadowed by a horrible choice in workers. But even the reviews from years ago say the same thing. Do not go to this place without being absolutely sure your insurance will cover it. Don't trust anything they say. And even then, be prepared to argue with the receptionist. It's not worth it. 0 Stars.

Run don't hire her. She'll take your consultation fee. Make you do the leg work. And three days,before you go for your hearing, tell you to hire Dave stupak. Don't make two mistakes.

Aspen Dental
When you call to schedule an appointment you are not connected to the office you wish to go to. You are connected to a schedule line that can't understand what an emergency is. I told them I has to be seen right away but it didn't seem to sink in. They wanted to schedule me a month out. I made one anyway just in case. I got in with another dentist much sooner but forgot to cancel Aspen. Not so much as a reminder call about the appointment ever came. Horrible customer service.

Not worth the gum on the bottom of your shoe, hire somebody worth the time or you'll end up spending time Behind Bars.

I've never had to work so hard to get a dental office to take my money. Their customer service is lacking. I went in for my first appointment on Jan 26th. Here is it April 6th and I still can't get an appointment to get the work done that I need or get them to return phone calls when I ask about issues. I have excellent insurance that never took longer than 3 weeks to approve a claim with my previous dentist.I've had to make several calls in to them and they've only returned one call. I don't know what the malfunction is with Aspen Dental, but I've given up. I'm going to make a special trip to my old dentist. I won't recommend Aspen Dental to anyone.

The doctor did a great job. He is excellent at what he does. What he is not excellent at is hiring quality people to work the reception desk. This lady argued with me for a bill under 50 dollars like I stole money from her great grand child. Rude, obtuse, ignorant, and downright nasty. She gets a 0. Doc gets a solid 4.

Manpower
Manpower is the absolute worst employment agency to work for they do not honor their employees nor do they care about their employees
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.
