Lantigua, Kelvin DMD
A client of mine told me that Dr Lantigua was really nice and HONEST. It is hard to find a honest dentist in South Florida. Most of them jack up the treatments and overcharge because people are more ignorant about dental issues and dental jargon than they are about medical issues and medical jargon. When a dentist tells you such and such is wrong or causing your problem, you have to just believe them. When I went to see Dr Lantigua, he told me that I did not need $6000 worth of work like another dentist had told me. He said I only needed some old fillings replaced and a broken tooth pulled. Saved me thousands and thousands of dollars and a lot of pain and agony. The office is really nice and clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, the hygienists are pleasant and very concerned about my comfort. And of course Dr Lantigua is very gentle and caring. I told him I was a big baby about pain so he made sure that I was numbed up good before any work. He did a great job, has fixed most all of my issues now, and he is cute to boot!!! His wife is office manager and she is a sweetheart. I am an insurance agent and I probably have 30-40 clients that I have referred to Dr Lantigua and they have reported to me about good experiences too. I highly recommend Dr Lantigua to all of my clients that need dental. He accepts a lot of different insurances like Humana, Delta Dental, Solstice, Carrington, and many others. Really nice guy, humble, caring, and a good dentist.

Terrible. Rude and painful. My 79-year-old widowed mother, a veteran patient of this practice, was rudely treated and traumatized by a rough, painful extraction with no pain management or preparation this morning. At nearly 10 pm, she is still shaken by her experience. In addition to the physical pain, the office staff was cold and dismissive. My mom is a sweet-natured person and rarely complains about these kind of things. She and other family members have been going there for years, but have noticed the quality of care, especially for mature patients, has declined rapidly and severely. Be forewarned, future patients.I know some places offer perks for 5 star reviews, and with their apparent shifted focus toward optional aesthetic treatments and MLM-type product pushing, you really have to wonder.ETA: Ah, I see a glowing review for a facial. That's telling.

Both myself and my boyfriend have had the absolute WORST experience EVER with this establishment. They charged both us and our insurance wrong prices for EVERYTHING they did. Having us sign off on these lower quotes then once they have already started the work they tell you at a later date that they mis-charged you and you owe them more than they had you agree to because THEY made a mistake (ON EVERY PROCEDURE THEY CHARGED YOU FOR) mind you there were two of us and they tried to pull this on both of us, in separate instances. Then they referred me to a specialist, that never answered the phone or returned ANY of several calls. When I told them about this they had nothing to say and not even another Dr to refer me to. Not to mention the dentist whose name is on the bills and everything else was never seen. When we asked to speak to him they gave an excuse and said they would let us speak to him but never did. I eventually switched dentists with my work unfinished. Worst experience ever!

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.
