Take your chances. 30 yrs of reputations but what I got was the father who apparently needed my $ for his retirement fund! Since I pleaded w/him"NOT" to remove it befor adjusting it since the dds had already removed it twice befor leaving me w/ a full porcelain crown which was as close as it'd been to fitting in 2 yrs! 20 + visit! But padding his retirement fund was more important to him? Then his son George got in there I had a huge gap in between the tooth he replaced w/ a crappy metal covered..which he then double charged for so, ..look... all I expected was a fair job done & honest charges at the very least, right! That's all?!.. I mean really look at their credentials I can tell you this about that! Had they been interested in the actual source of the problem I had they could've found it and saved me thousands in cash & unlimited time in severe pain but cash is king right! But~They got theirs right, so ...

I trusted them to protect me/ my mouth... Don't they take some sort of hypocrati oath? Or have any heart,feelings. Know the depth of pain they are capable of??? I didn't mind his chair side manor, I know the talent they are capable of REALY I do but WTF...........then dr grey 'ripped' my mouth apart' carelessly without any punitive after thought because he "RETiIRED"..

How a dentist damages your teeth lasts the rest of your life. Find a different dentist. Spent many months going to this dentist. Necessary because each time my teeth needed repaired from the last visit. Find a different dentist.Spent thousand of dollars getting damages fixed. They still aren't repaired. Find a different dentist.

Paid over close to $1300 for a crown. Had some bonding done as well and after having to go back and get some repaired because some chipped off, more chipped off again after that.Was told on my first visit I had a deep cavity on the upper right side. Went back in for that cavity and it couldn't be found anywhere. Instead I was told I had a cavity under a previous crown and would need THAT replaced and would also need deep cleaning to the tune of nearly $3,000.First of all, no other dentist in Hemet charges $400 per area (quadrant) for cleaning. This is not Beverly Hills. Their location is in a Stater Brothers shopping center. Speaking of Beverly Hills, I called two dentists there who don't even charge $400 per area. $1600 to deep clean teeth????The most insane thing I have ever heard of.Avoid this office.

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.
