Vaughn Family Dental
My experience at Vaughn Family Dental was by far one of the best I've ever had at the dentist. I was greeted promptly by the friendly staff and they got me right back for my cleaning with the very thorough hygienist, Stephanie. Dr. Vaughn addressed all my questions in detail and is a very knowledgeable professional. The office itself is beautiful and very clean. I definitely won't dread the dentist office anymore!

Eastland Family Dental
My family goes to Eastland and we think they're great. Two of my kids see the orthodontist Dr. Neuer as well as the general dentists Dr. Tran and Dr. Kepler. I like their digital x-rays and photos they take so we can see what they're talking about in our mouths. Got a crown done recently and they make them and put them in the same day. Didn't know that was possible. It's a great office with the latest awesome technology.

I've had the worst dental experience in my life with Eastland Family Dental. It had been about a year and a half since I'd gotten a cleaning due to job switching. I was told they'd have to do a deep cleaning. The dentist then came in and quickly went through my teeth to which she told me old fillings need to be replaced. As the expert, I assumed she knew best so I agreed. They had me sit with the financial person who told me my insurance maximum would be reached with half of the fillings that need to be replaced. I'd have to pay the rest out of pocket. I told her I wasn't willing to do that so she pushed for a while then when she saw I wasn't willing to budge, she asked the dentist and the dentist said I can do half now, the other half later. I was told it may cost around $200 out of pocket as the insurance will probably want them to use the "cheapest fillings".When I went in for the work, they gave me around 6 numbing shots. When the dentist came in, I realized why they gave me so much numbing agent -- the dentist went crazy with the drill, hitting every tooth like there's no tomorrow. On my way out of the dental office I found a piece of bloody gauze they left in my mouth. The next day, my teeth were extremely pressure, hot and cold sensitive. I called and they told me to wait a week or two. I waited and the pain persisted so I called back and they told me to go in. The dentist said everything looked fine and that I need to give it more time or else she'd have to do a root canal.Here I am now, having paid $700 -- that's right, SEVEN HUNDRED dollars on top of my insurance being maxed out. It's been several months and every day, I have to take several ibuprofen pills because the throbbing in my teeth is unbearable. It's like I walked in and the dentists eyes lit up with dollar signs. Worst of all is the pain. I went in for a simple cleaning and now have to live with throbbing teeth every day and may only be able to get this issue resolved with an expensive root canal. I'm now looking for another dentist who can hopefully fix what she did without having to do a root canal.

Great Orthodontist. Gives much attention to detail and always let me know exactly how the kids were doing. Staff is great and very professional. Have taken all 5 of my kids to Dr. Elrod and they all have beautiful teeth. All are grown adults and they all have great smiles. Has helped them be more confident and outgoing.

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.
