Bonine Fredric L
Excellent doctor and excellent staff. My 5 year old daughter suffered a serious injury which included knocking one of her lower teeth out. My daughter's primary dentist was unable to fit her into their schedule. Dr Bonine made a special trip into his office so that he could take care of her. His professionalism and skills are top notch. He was kind and patient and was extra diligent to address all of her fears. He carefully explained the treatment plan and not only talked to us (the parents), but also took EXTRA time to explain the treatment plan to my daughter in a way she could understand. As a result, a lot of her fears were set aside, and she felt as comfortable as possible with what needed to be done. I feel we were extremely fortunate to find Dr Bonine AND his staff. Michelle, Linda, Beth, Christina, Jennifer... not meaning to leave anyone out... all of you who were involved in our care, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

I agree! receptionists are rude and Dr. B just seems to want money. He made me schedule a second consult because my last one was "a year ago". He charged me $90 to look in my mouth for two seconds and tell me that i still needed to get my wisdom teeth out because nothing has changed. Well duh! And then he mocked me and "tested" me about my profession. I am a therapist and he quizzed me on what a cognitive behavioral therapist is. He said he wanted to pick my brain and test me. Ok..I get it, you have a PhD. SO what! I think being a therapist is a lot harder than being a dentist. No one is going to commit suicide if you dont do your job correctly. I really do not trust him but at this point, I need to get my teeth extracted so I have no choice. But certainly in the future, I will seek out other, cheaper options. (his facility is elaborate for a reason; patients pay for it in the high fees he charges).

Dr. Dittmar has performed 3 root canal procedures on me over the years. I have found he and his staff to be courteous and professional. Dr. Dittmar thoroughly explained all procedures in advance and checked on me constantly during the procedures to ensure I was comfortable. I recommend Kensington Valley Endodontics!

I've been going to Dr. Goodell for at least 25 years. Before him, I've had at least 5 other dentists. Trust me when I say, you will not find a better dentist.

Dr. Attarian is GREAT! She went out of her way to come in after hours for me and called later to inquire on how I was doing.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
