My entire family uses Dr. Collins. We changed from Dr hall because of over billing & waiting over an hour past our app. I have never been over billed at Dr. Collins or have ever waited more than 5 min past my app time.The staff has been great scheduling our appointments around all of our work schedules. We have never had a problem getting any kind of prescriptions either. I do understand any Dr not writing a prescription for a new patient for pain pills. Unfortunately people Dr shop for pain pills. Once you are a regular patient at Dr Collins I'm sure he will take care of any problems you may have.

All four of our family has been seen by Dr. Collins. We have had nothing but great service from Dr. Collins and his staff. They are always friendly, courteous and very easy to deal with. We have had twice a year cleanings, check-ups and dental work and our insurance has not ever been over charged. I applaud Dr. Collins for not handing out pain medication if he didn't believe it was needed. This county (and country) does have a problem with over prescribed pain meds. I have and would recommend Dr. Collins.

Dr. Collins and all of his staff are wonderful. He has always seen me quickly when I've had a problem, and mommoftwo, gave me pain meds when I've needed them. Have never had any problem with insurance billing and find his prices to be extremely reasonable. Highly recommend.
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
