The site is clean, roomy and well air-conditioned although a trifle loud with overhead music. Dr. Stark saw me right away as a walk-in for a chipped molar with a clean break of one cusp. He gave his honest evaluation that a buildup was NOT required in advance of my planned dental vacation to Cancun next winter to get some crowns made at reduced cost without dental insurance. His truthful response refutes another review which claims he promoted unnecessary procedures. Dr. Stark also convincingly explained the cause of an ongoing inflamed pocket and prescribed an effective mouthwash. His office allowed a discount for cash payment (although I had to remind them of their policy). The charge was reasonable for a simple exam.Update 8/6/2013: I am satisfied with my second visit today where Dr. Stark and his capable assistant Alex deftly filled a small cavity without need for anesthetic. I apologize to the reviewer willy.good.96 for a clumsy mistake I made below in marking his review titled Worst Nightmare? as unhelpful. I actually meant to mark it as helpful. It was VERY helpful. I hope I can partially correct it with this note.

Dr. Stark has performed several dental procedures on me over the past two years. His technique (especially in extractions!) is unsurpassed. In the past, I have invariably experienced extreme pain for a couple of days post-op. But not with Dr. Stark! I didn't need to take even an aspirin afterwords. And I must take very strong issue with the so-called "Flagstaff informer" in regard to cost. Case in point: I had thought that I would need TWO implants to replace my two front teeth. But upon examination, the good Doctor told me that I would need only one (the other one he would simply crown). His honesty in this regard will save me thousands of dollars. I intend to retain Dr. Benjamin Stark as my dentist for the remainder of my life (I am 63). He is the best dentist I have ever had.

Worst Nightmare? Surely you jest! The dentist your describe certainly does not sound anything like the Dr. Ben Stark whom I know and love! He has been 100% forthright and honest in all his dealings with me. Having been to over a dozen dentists in the course of my lifetime (I am 62), I would have to rate him (in terms of both honesty AND expertise) #1. Since I do not carry insurance, he was more than happy to offer a 5% discount to me. Bottom line, 'in my book' Dr. Stark is worth every penny of what I paid him. He even was able to save a molar which I had completely given up hope on!

I have a fear of dentists and this office calmed them. The front office was friendly and kind, and answered all my questions. The dentist was efficient but patient. He actually did the cleaning! When I needed a root canal, I knew I could trust Dr. Darlington's office to make it as pain free as possible. Glad he has Nitrous Oxide! Almost no waiting time in the waiting room, and I got my appointment within the same week I called. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

I highly recommend Timberline Dental. I was having pain with a tooth that had a root canal and three crowns over a period of ten years. My dentist wanted to put another crown on or pull the tooth. I went to Timberline Dental to get a second opinion. Dr. Tilts made some adjustments to the surface of the tooth and now I am pain free and saved quite a bit of money. I have since had my records switched over to Timberline Dental. Thank You Dr. Tilts

I took my daughter to get a filling done on her front tooth. Dr. Darlington explained what he was going to do to her, and she really liked him. She's only three so it was a little scary for me. But he took his time, and fixed her beautiful smile. The front desk and assistant were so nice and didn't rush us, even though my daughter was a little scared. Thank you for a great first experience for her.

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
