This was one of my best experiences going to the dentist. They were welcoming, friendly and very gentle on my mouth. Too bad they can't figure out how to bill my insurance. They would get 5 stars if they had correctly made a claim instead of billing me.

She filled my cavities quickly and there was no pain after the numbness wore off. Her manner is efficient and kind, she is clear about what will be done and takes the time to explain what the procedures will be for everyone in our little family. We found our new dentist!!

I wasn't happy with Dr. Mulhaus had a set of dentures made and they were to big for my mouth I looked like flicks went back several times and all he did was grind them down .and in January after going back several times he said he would reimburse my insurance company and I could go somewhere else took me 8 months to get into another dental clinic and to find out he did not reimburse my insurance company so here I sit with out any teeth 8 months later he would not listen to me he thinks he knows better than me and it's my mouth

Don't recommend them AT ALL. Scheduled my apt 2 weeks in advance and was unable to be seen due to the dentist not being available. Got a call on friday (day of the original apt) they had to reschedule because he was unavailable. So they rescheduled me for Saturday. Saturday an hour before my appointment they called me again to inform me That he would AGAIN be unavailable. I understand that this is a holiday weekend however as a doctor they have certain obligations to their patients. If you don't wanna work the weekends or holidays maybe you should find a new profession. Now I am stuck with no insurance and paying out of pocket due to this dentist taking the weekend off! The worst part is the poor ladies at the desk aren't allowed to call anyone until 15 minutes before they open. Dentist needs a career change!!!

This place is professional, quick, and thorough! They definitely know their stuff! I signed up as a new patient, got into my appointment, had a root canal done, and got back outta there in a little over an hour! And the doctor was so excellent at what he does that I fell asleep TWICE while he was working on my 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.
