Jackson Smile Studio
Dr. Jackson absolutely saved the day! Talk about going above and beyond!!!! I had an absolute nightmare of dentist emergency. It was a Friday night and my front veneer came out. Well, that would not have been the worst thing that could happen to a person, obviously, except that I was leaving to go to a national sales meeting on Sunday for the week, and it was looking like I would be going without a front tooth!!!! I frantically called the emergency dental line and to my surprise got Dr. Jackson, himself! Not an answerinbg service- major points! Then I find out he is heading to Myrtle Beach with his dear wife, but that he is willing to meet me before he goes and fix my tooth at 11:30pm!!!!!!!!!!! Who does that these days???? Only my dentist, with professionalism, precision, and with a Jackson Smile! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone looking for an amazing dentist. He was my hero that night and I was able to go to my meeting with all my teeth and a big smile on my face! : )

Harbison Hill Dentistry
I do not agree with any of the negative comments below. This office has been great every time I have gone. The technology is new and the staff is very friendly & nice. I usually see Dr Triola - who is so gentle and knowledgeable. She was out on maternity leave and I had a bad tooth ache. The other dentist in the office Dr Ifraitekh saw me the same day and got me out of pain. This is the BEST dental office I have ever been to. There were absolutely no suprises on my bill and they went over what I needed and how much it was going to cost before they did any work. I HIGHLY suggest you give them a try.

Aspen Dental
Truly amazing. Dr. Henson is a grounded professional with people skills at an A+. No one loves the dentist, but this group makes it a happy visit! I rarely get to know everyone's name, but this office was so incredibly nice, I actually jotted down their names to give credit where credit was due: Liz, Angela, Lauren, Fawn, Joselena. Thank you. Even though this is out of my way from downtown, I will gladly do the drive! -Erin P.

Richland Northeast Dental, PA
New Dentist here! Dr. D and staff are amazing! I have Fibromyalgia so a trip to the dentist can cause me more than the normal share of pain. This really deters me from going at all - even for cleanings. For the first time, and over 7 different dentists in my life, I'm not hurting for a week just from a cavity filled. Whether it's skill or magic, Dr. D's injections are gentle and his bite adjustments are spot on.

Riley, Annette DMD
The staff are very warm and welcoming! I loved my experience there! I get major anxiety when going to the dentist, although this procedure was a refilling (dreaded it) I felt so cared for! The administration staff was honest and open about payment options and my dentist was informative and educated me! I would recommend this establishment to anyone!

Harbison Hill Dentistry
I have had nothing but great experiences at Harbison Hill. The staff is always friendly and fun (and funny). They treat me like a person and not a patient. I've always enjoyed going to the dentist but this office is most definitely my favorite. From Dr. Triola to the hygienists and office staff ... A+

Dr. Jarrett Newsome DMD
It looks like Newsome Dentistry has the latest state of the art technology in making your natural teeth continue to be healthy. If they need to do other procedures, such as artificial teeth, they have all sorts of non-painful solutions. Their team will do a wonderful job.

Kline, Richard M DMD
Dr. Kline is the greatest! He is so gentle and caring; he is the only dentist I've known who has NEVER caused me pain during a novacaine shot. This alone is a major miracle in my book! I dare anyone to find a better, kinder, more empathetic dentist...~~Melanie McNally~~
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.
