Ok so where to start. I started to receive calls about cancellations and their ability to see me earlier than scheduled which wouldn't be bad but I didn't asked to be placed on a cancellation list. The business day before my appointment I received a call stating that they hadn't verified my insurance and asked for the numbers. Received a call later that day with the reception complaining about all the difficulties she had verifying my dental insurance and asked me to contact the insurance and have them fact over my benefits info to them. Big warning sign there! I asked the receptionist if she could call me back if there is a co-pay to which she said that co-pay would be determined based on a treatment plan which is done after I'm seen. Today was my appointment. I arrived 15 mins early to complete 3 forms of paperwork. 45 mins after my scheduled appointment and after at least 3 other people (who arrived after me) are taken back, I'm called. The dental either tells me about the x-rays and teeth cleaning that will be done then tells me there's a $23 co-pay for one of the c-rays which is not covered. A panorama x-Ray which is not standard and is second to a full teeth c-Ray. When I questioned the purpose she said it was to locate wisdom teeth, impacted teeth, check the jaw etc. all of which could be seen on the standard x-Ray and oral exam. I know this because my wisdom teeth were removed after they were located as an issue during a standard exam. She stated that I couldn't decline the x-Ray. This was a complete waste of time and I left the appointment without any treatment done. I believe able! I think they are ripping people and their insurance off with bogus charges for services not needed. I'm so disappointed by the service here.

Victor Mckerlie DMD
We used Dr McKerlie 3 times now and the wait time was minimal and the service was great. He bonded two of my teeth over 2 years ago that had chipped and they still are fine and bonded a chip on my wife's tooth with an excellent color match. His fees are comparable to what we pay for dental care in Latin America. His is a really clean well run office and he gives a discount for check or cash payment. He does not process any form of insurance, but will help you fill out your own forms if you need assistance.

Fort Myers Dental
This place is the chop shop of dentistry. Fort Myers Dental office has terrible customer service. The doctor was over 2 1/2 hours late didn't even attempt to apologize to the patients who were waiting. Bed side manner even worse. The only thing that they care about is making money. It's just one big racket. They get you in with that low price then you join the club which is barely a discount!

Natural Dental and Denture
I had several procedures done at Natural Dental. I was very pleased with Dr. Vic. He did things to my teeth that other dentists told me they couldn't. I was told I needed a root canal and crown. Dr. Vic was able to repair the tooth, saving me money and pain. He did an exceptional job. Dr. Vic cares about his patients more than money. The staff treated me like family. I highly recommend going there for your dental needs!

***** Update 01/24/17******This dentist is definitely the most unprofessional provider that I have ever encountered!The office called me back on 01/23/17 to tell me that they had my X-rays after all and said that I could still come in to my appointment. I agreed to that. He told me about how to fix my implant and said that he would give me a referral to another dentist to do the work. After this, I told him of my complaint regarding his office staff. He replied that "we don't have any checks to confirm that we received the records from other offices," and that "we do not have to follow up," and that "the only way you come up on our radar" is when we check your file before your next appointment. He then said that he had "found my Xrays in a back bin." He said that they had been labeled improperly (again not my fault), and he "tosses them in a bin." I told him that it is ridiculous that his office staff did not obtain the records in a timely manner, they lied to me, they tried to make it the MY responsibility to obtain said records even though they did no follow up, they would have penalized me by rescheduling the appointment, an appointment that I had already waited for for 2 months, and they actually had random mislabeled or unlabeled records sitting in a "back bin" for which they make no effort to determine to which patient they belong. His response, "I have been doing it this way for 35 years and it works for me." So I told him that I would like to get the referral he offered in the beginning of the meeting, and he REFUSED. GREAT PATIENT CARE...NOT! So he has directly caused a delay in my medical treatment. This is the worst example of "patient care" that I have ever seen by a medical "professional," and I actually do not think either he or his staff even know the definition of the word "professional." If you want a dedicated dentist who prioritizes patient care...THIS IS NOT THE DENTIST FOR YOU!

Aspen Dental
Gave 1 start because had no choice.DO NOT GO THIS PLACE ! Aspen Dental DESTROYED ME PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY.And corporate doesn't even care, They need to be shut down. For 1 year now i have had an infection, was told i had bone loss as i see others have been told.I live in pain everyday, I was told 3 teeth had to be pulled that there was no other option for me, the doctor ended up pulling 6 of my teeth out, i was devastated i was treated awful in there, it was like being slowly tortured.I went back with a bad infection the Doctor was so rude and didn't even bother to look at me.I received bills which i have paid cash for what was supposed to be done (gets even better) when i went there I was told the office manager Mariela was no longer there and she took files and they still wanted me to pay even for work i never wanted or agreed on doing.Since then and having fear of going to dentist now, I was in so much pain i went to 2 different dentist both told me i have No Bone Loss! One dentist told me Aspen is in the business of selling dentures and that's why they do this, this doctor suggested i get my files and xrays .. So i did and the day i went to pick all xrays and what was left of files I noticed all new staff, the woman at the Desk was trying to sell me to another doctor there (No Thanks) she told me the doctor who destroyed my mouth doesn't work at that office anymore.Now i need to have surgery where they have to cut my almost 3 inches long do to bone fragments & root that was left in my mouth was also told that the infection i have can not wait and could be very dangerous. I don'thave the money for this surgery and to fix all the damage that was done.I call corporate spoke to.a woman Julie who told me a woman Tricia would call me back and she never did..Since i was even received a call back I guess I'm left no choice to take legal action just to fix the mess Aspen Dental did to my mouth. Aspen does not care about people, all they care about is pulling your teeth out so they can sell you dentures that you don't need. I cried when other dentist told me those teeth were wrongfully pulled and i have no bone loss like i was told.I'm glad i have my xrays from Aspen Dental proof.They have destroyed my face and my life, I still cry everyday over this.

The staff at Southwest Florida Dental Group are all so good at keeping the office tidy and organized.
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.
