Going back to Mr. Reginald's comment on waiting. Did you bother to knock on the window. I have been going there for 5 yrs and never ever experienced that problem.

You have to call all day just to get somebody on the phone. They call you right before your appointment to tell you it is being rescheduld. This happened to me 3 different times within 2 months. That is not only unprofessional but inconsiderate. I had to take time off of work each time only to be cancelled and when ai explained that to the scheduler she had the nerve to tell me she was being inconvenienced as well smh excuse me so you mean ti tell me you are calling off of work missing your oay check as well because your of this i mean im a single mother of 3 kids and this is not right. Then she goes to tell me it will be this dentist last day Thursday whattt so you guys knew there was an issue and instead of sending me somewhere else, sceduling me a different dentist or an appointment you guys could meep you just choose to keep rescheduling and on top of that you recsudule on the same day literally right as we are heading to our appt this is a down right SHAME!!!!!!

way more expensive than other dentists. $1,500 for a crown compared to $800 from most others i've been to in jacksonville. you have to pay upfront BEFORE they do any work. again, historically you pay on your way out the door after the works is performed. they don't have a cerec machine so expect multiple appointments for a crown with the obnoxious temporary that you wear for awhile. during a cleaning your teeth don't get polished with that delightfully flavored stuff (normally the best part of any dentist visit). instead you're offered a toothbrush to go brush your own teeth. you know how most dentists send you away with a plastic bag after your visit, filled with a new toothbrush, an appointment reminder card, dental floss, etc...? that doesn't happen here either. oh, but there's a silver lining, if you live in bartram park, it's probably within walking distance which is why you probably chose this location in the first place.

My first impression of this business is horrible, let me just say. My insurance only covers this crap shoot. First doctor Molina and he was so rude and did not speak unless about teeth. Luckily he is gone to his own practice. Good luck with that. Fast forward 6 months later.... I'm back. First of all these women at the desk are here for nothing but gossip. They do nothing. My appointment was at 830 (they open at 830) it is 935....have yet to be greeted. Still waiting to even be acknowledged. But I've heard about employees who are not on time, employee's dreams, how to interpret them, family trips to Bahrain and anything but dental office banter. We as of now r talking about failed engagements. 9:40....suggestions that the co workers fiance has herpes and shes a skank and wants to sleep around. The dentist is now googling cunt. Wow. I wish I could record them. So unprofessional. Do not come here.

Awful experience, worst I've ever had at a dentist. Dentist was argumentive, arrogant & sarcastic. Held a condescending tone throughout and very obviously didn't care to be challenged in view to care or procedure /practice guidelines that only support maximum profit/patient expense with the cloak of best care practice to guilt the patient and swindle. We came in to do routine basic cleanings and this wasn't possible without paying hundreds of dollars in addition to what our insurance covers which is a bi annual cleaning and new patient X-rays or exams. An aggressive sales process is followed by staff to pressure patients into feeling that in order to receive standard, basic & appropriate care; good dental insurance isn't enough. It felt like a scam. The dentist was the least friendly and most pressuring. We will never return and have reviewed the practice according online to warn others. A total waste of our afternoon- nothing accomplished but we didn't get scammed and that's a victory! Most patients sadly aren't probably brave enough to challenge the heavy sales process and succumb to excessive charges for services that should be included with insurance as with 95% other dental establishments

I really enjoyed my visit to this dentist office. Everyone was professional and helpful. All charges were laid out with no pressure before I saw Dr. Smith. Ashley did my deep dental cleanings and she was fantastic. I almost fell asleep during the process (which is a great thing). She was also extremely knowledgeable of her profession and had a great sense of humor while doing the procedure. I highly recommend her for your cleanings if she is available. I will definitely come back for my follow up appointments - Thank you.

Boulter, Joseph R DMD Dr
The entire staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Boulter is very skilled. In fact, he found decay under one of my crowns that two other dentists missed. The office's equipment is state-of-the-art, and the charges are very reasonable.

The appointments here are scheduled way too close together, basically right on top of eachother. You're rushed through your appointment. I don't know anyone that wants to pay thousands of dollars for treatment to be rushed through an appointment you only have once a month for an hour or 2 tops. They will make you wait into your appointment time but if you're late or can't make it they will charge you $20. Please shop around and be careful where you spend your money because once you're braced here you will rarely see the orthodontist. Also you will not know about deals or promotions unless you have a Facebook.

Worst place to have touch your teeth. Along with their bad attitudes and high prices the Dr is very over zealous and brash. The dentist / endo is bad enough without having to deal with all this.
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.
