Amazingly pleasant. Everyone was professional quite considerate of the patients. Dr Orr is not only professional and efficient but also extremely good looking. He seemed to take great professional interest in my problems. How can I make this into 100 words. His nurse was also quite professional, pleasant and interested in me. I was married to a doctor so I am quite familiar with doctors and the medical profession. I highly recommend this facility and group of doctors and their staff.

Read the review by the woman whose husband waited an hour. Agree that one should not have to wait so long. I've visited Dr. Wickwire multiple times; never had to wait more than 10 minutes, but his waiting room has been full at times. On the other hand, isn't the quality of treatment more important? OK, not to some people, who would rather have fast service than good medicine. Dr. Wickwire is very good at what he does. Called in an even more special specialist for me when needed. I'm impressed. The fellow at the front desk is pleasant, in my view. But everybody can be less than perfectly polite at times. Also, what's the alternative? Here's what it is: an hour's drive in each direction down the mountain to wait in someone else's waiting room. Finally, as the woman said, they were told he was in surgery. Well, surgery is not a precise science. Sometimes there is more to deal with. So lady, drive down the mountain next time. I like Dr. Wickwire, his front desk staffer, and his nurse. All quite cool people, and he's a very good doc with skin cancers.

My husband had an appointment with this doctor. We were on time and there were other people waiting in the lobby. The guy at the front desk was calling people and telling them to come in at any time. After we waited an hour we were finally put in a room and told we might have to wait ANOTHER hour because the doctor was doing a surgical procedure. By this time the waiting room was full. I asked why they scheduled patients when he had a surgery?? No answer. Instead, the guy asked if we wanted to reschedule and he would note that we didn't want to wait over an hour but he couldn't guarantee it. We walked. The front office guy was rude, abrupt and didn't have any regard for our time. We will never go back.
Tips & Advices
It's a good idea to have your teeth professionally cleaned before having them whitened, since cleaning can enhance your results. If you have sensitive teeth, using Sendodyne(a fluoride toothpaste), or a fluoride rinse in the two weeks leading up to your first teeth-whitening session will help you minimize or avoid tooth sensitivity.
Good oral hygiene is essential in keeping teeth bright following teeth whitening. This means flossing at least once daily, and brushing your teeth twice a day. Regular use of activated charcoal or a whitening toothpaste can help teeth retain their whiteness.
One potential side effect of teeth whitening is tooth sensitivity. Delicate gum tissues may also be irritated during teeth-whitening treatment.
Teeth whitening doesn't work on veneers, caps, and bonding. However, teeth whitening will not weaken these structures, and it may actually make them stronger.
Teeth whitening isn't permanent, and the whiteness can start to diminish in as little as a month. However, if you avoid foods that can stain teeth and practice diligent oral hygiene, results can last up to a year.
