I chose Dr. Gassen mainly because of his beautiful facility, and the fact that he is close to my work. The staff is wonderful. Dr. Gassen's manner with children is amazing, he truly cares and does his best to make them as comfortable as possible. He came in on Saturday morning to help my son who was having horrible toothaches, removed two baby teeth, and didn't even charge us any type of premium for this. I couldn't be happier with him.

I've been a patient of Dr. Richter's for many years. I started going to him after he was highly recommended to me. I've always been greatly pleased with the attention and treatment I've received. I've had a couple of emergencies when they immediately made time for me. I've had a lifelong fear of dentists which Dr. Richter and his staff have put to rest. I can say, without hesitation, that Dr. Richter is wonderful.

I had gum graft surgery. This was one of the most painful procedures I've ever been through, and I feel like it was for nothing. It's been almost a year, and the gums look worse than they did before the procedure, and the roof of my mouth still hurts. I think he needs to modernize his pain control and surgical technique.

Dr. May used a laser and some type of antibiotic soak to sterilize and keep bacteria from returning to my tooth. Most dentists leave bacteria on doing root canal with some type of laser, but laser are suppose to remove 99%. All I know is my root canal is working and no pain

They are the nicest kindest dental office I have ever been to. They really care. The staff is great and they all work together. I would recommend them to anyone I have told all of my family members and they are going there too. Thanks Dr. Henningsen

I had a previous crown fall off (had it done somewhere else) and they were able to fit me in quickly. Staff and Dr were very friendly and courteous. I felt absolutely ZERO pain when they did the temporary crown. I may have found my new dentist!

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.
