Patrick Wayne Kutas, DDS
I went to see Patrick Kutas with a severe toothache that I had over the weekend. I was truely to the breaking point in pain and have never experience this kind of toothache pain before. He gave me the choice of whether to save the tooth by having a root canal or having it pulled. I chose to have the tooth pulled because I just didnt think I could handle going through the root canal due to the overwhelming pain I was in over the weekend I just wanted it out and over with. Dr. Kutus was very understanding and was very caring and concerned. After it was all over and I was at home he called me at 8:30 at night to check on me, such a caring thing to do. Thank you so much! I really thought I was going to loose my sanity. That night I did not have any pain except for some tenderness in my jaw. The next day a great sense of calmness after feeling pretty frantic. A" Thank You" to you and you wonderful staff.

We had a great check up at Pediatric Dental Group this summer. We've been going to Dr. Acosta for 7 years and would not go anywhere else. When I was little I never looked forward to going to the dentist! BUT my kids do! They love the tv's over the dentist chair and I love that they are in and out very quickly with minimal wait time for me as the parent. They can't wait to go the toy dispenser. Dr. Acosta is not only a great dentist but he also makes the kids feel comfortable and he jokes around with them and the parents.

Gang W. and Hafez S,You are the same person, we know. We are so very sorry that our attempts to satisfy your experience were unsuccessful. Insurance companies can complicate matters when they advise they will pay for something and then don't. We were hoping that dropping all the charges would help the matter, but it evidently didn't. We regret this with all sincerity, as it is our primary Core Value 'to be a servant' to our dental families. We wish we could have served you and your children to your satisfaction.

Great experience with Pediatric Dental Group!!! My children were very nervous seeing Dr. Acosta, but he, the staff, and medical personnel made all well. From the time I walked in the front door to checking out, everyone made this trip painless. The hygienist explained step by step what they were doing, so my kids would not be scared. Dr. Acosta proceeded to explain to me and the kids the best practices for dental care without rushing me out the door!! Oh, and the tokens for toys was a HUGE bonus!!! Thanks PDG

My son went to the Southaven location and It was beyond what I expected. Everyone was so professional and friendly. Ashley cleaned my son's teeth and treated him so nice. Her sweet personality made me choose this place as my sons dental office from this day forward because she was so patient with him. All the staff went beyond my expectations.

I personally love this clinic! My family has been seeing Dr. Acosta for 23 years now and we have hardly had any concerns at all. If there has ever been an issue they have gladly partnered with us to solve it. We truly have had an awesome experience here!

Ms. Garrett and her staff are really professional people. I would totally recommend this office to everyone. I have been there 3 times and it was a good experience.
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
