This is a conflicting review to write because the nurses and one of the doctors I had were just amazing but the first doctor that I had was Dr. Morrar and he was the most unprofessional, rudest doctor that I have ever come into contact with. I have a history of large kidney stones and drove 40 minutes to this urgent care center because it was the only one open at 10 on a Saturday night. I got there and the nurses were so sweet and got me in an exam room and he came in an asked my pain level one through ten. Well I was in severe pain and I told him it was a ten. He then proceeds to tell me that there's no way my pain is a ten with a normal blood pressure as heart rate, after three kidney stones I've gotten good at managing my pain, and tells me that ten is the worst pain you could possibly have. And that walking in here with my arm cut off would be a ten and that there was no way my pain was a ten. So I started crying and he just kept saying why are you crying why are you crying. Well because no doctor has ever questioned my level of pain before and he was so rude and then a nurse came in and asked why I was crying and he rudely explained that I was overreacting and repeated everything that he had just said. Thankfully soon after his shift was over and the amazing dr. Mcatee came and took over. He is hilarious and takes very good care of his patients. He called Thomas hospital er to make sure they knew I was coming and that I wouldn't have to wait long before being admitted. He also gave me his cell phone number in case they gave me any issues. Dr. McAtee and the nurses and xray techs are amazing and so professional and accommodating. Exactly who you want to be dealing with when in pain.

This is such a lovely place to go (as far as dentist offices are concerned)! I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist and was in the dental chair in no time. I hate waiting around and hearing the drill (bad childhood memory). Anyway, Dr. Mary Edwards was my dentist. She told me that herself and her mother are the two dentists for the office. Sure enough, my fear of dentists meant I hadn't seen one for a while so I had a cavity that needed filling. Most painless procedure (filling) I have ever gotten. Seriously, it was over before I could freak out about the drill. I would highly recommend using this family of dentists as your dentist. Oh, and I got a nice goody bag (toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, etc.) when I left along with a friendly smile from the whole staff.

We came here first because of the hours--my kids were sick one weekend and they took great care of us. That was two years ago and since then we have been back repeatedly, for an eye injury, flu and colds. Each time we have been very pleased.
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
