Kathryn Ringland DDS
Awesome Awesome Awesome!!!!On vacation in Fort Myers and on the first day of my vacation I broke my tooth. :-(Unfortunately it was a Friday and she was closed however she still agreed to see me. Not only did she just take a look BUT she also fixed my tooth. I needed a crown and she was able to make it and put it on the SAME DAY. She did a terrific job on my tooth. After the numbing wore off, I was worried I might have pain or maybe the bite would be off (causing pain) BUT it was ALL GOOD. My tooth is perfect. No pain! No discomfort! I can not express how great my experience was with her. She was extremely caring, professional, and you can tells she loves doing her job (even though she was not even supposed to be working that day). If you are looking for a dentist, go see her!!! You will not be disappointed!!! I live in Atlanta, GA and I so satisfied with her service that I am thinking about going to her the next time I visit Fort Myers!!

Natural Dental and Denture
I had a crown installed at Natural Dental and Denture. The crown was installed in a timely manner. The procedure of preparing the crown as well as repairing two other teeth was prompt and professional. I was not comfortable with how it fit, so and they adjusted it according to what I requested.The pricing is excellent and the staff are professional and friendly.Crowns are $599. I had two teeth repaired and a crown installed for $1001, though I only paid $949 because there is a 5% discount if you pay with a check or cash. This is because they pass the savings of the credit card fees on to you.The office is relatively simple relative to what I was used to, but the service and staff exceeded my expectations.Dr. Victor Mckerlie is excellent, honest, quick, experienced and affordable.

John Hyatt DDS
We were visiting from out of town when i had a dental emergency on Friday night. I was panicked bc no one works on the weekend. I called 5 dif dentist in the area and Dr. Hyatt was the only one who called back. I explained what was going on and he met us on sat am and was able to fix my crown. He was patient, took his time, did not rush thru the job or try to rush us out of the office bc it was the weekend! He did a great job and bc if him i was able to enjoy the rest of our vacation! TX U Dr. Hyatt and I appreciate your kindness and taking time on your weekend!

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.

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!

Dr. Ringland made sure I wasn't in any pain throughout the procedure, and she used Cerec technology (CAD/CAM dentistry) so I was in and out of her office with new crowns in under 3 hours! She made sure the fit was absolutely perfect before I left, and her staff took great care of me. Great experience overall!!

Coast Dental
Dr Ben Lewis and the entire staff are extremely professional and friendly. I appreciate them so much because I use to really dread going to the dentist. The care they take to ensure my comfort before, during and after my care is awesome. I gladly recommend this dental office!

I love being a patient at Southwest Florida Dental for many reasons, one because I love going in for my visits and being able to talk with the staff, they are all very nice including the doctor. Not to mention I always get in very quickly, it is a great office.

Lee Dental Care
I have been a patient for 10 years and I have never had to wait longer than 5 minutes for my appointment. I really like the location, it's very convenient and easy to get to if you need something done. I recommend them to whoever needs dental work done!
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.
