This has to be either the worst experiance or a burned out dentist.He cut all of teeth out and have nothinBut problem since.He was generally nice first visit till medicaid paid him, then the a**hole came out.When I went back to have stitches remove he took out the top,then let the nurse take out the bottomto which I pulled out a 3 inch stitch that evening she missed.I noticed when the swelling went downthere seemed to be a whole tooth left in the front of my mouth I called to ask why.Was told to comeIn another day.When I went back I could hardly beleive with NO anastia he cut my gum and broke what ever it was til I could take no more and sent me on my way. I asked what it was tooth or bone he toldme he did not know. Being a "Dentist" you would think he would know.Oh and he never took one x-raybut I am sure he billed medicaid for it. I would not take my dog to him to do work. My sugestion dont go toHim go any whre else.

A terrible experience when it comes to a professional who will try and squeeze every last penny that they can get out of you. The dentist will avoid eye contact, does not explain process when getting partials or dentures and will not greet you when he knows he is taking advantage of you. The staff will rush you and call repeatedly before your appointment date to be sure that you are still coming, they will answer questions with "Im sure that wont be a problem" . If you request to speak with the dentist.. They will set you an appointment to come in and talk and when you arrive immediatley shove something in your mouth. The dentist seemed interested in speaking with my driver concerning me (personal info) on numerous occasions. The dentist could be overheard from the waiting room communicating very loudly confidential information. The dentist avoided speaking to me and shoved something into my mouth because he wanted to get some sort of work done in order to bill medicaid. The dentist ordered me dentures, when me (the patient) wanted partials (found out from Medicaid after the fact. There was nothing preventing me from getting partials except for the dentists work ethics. I was a nervous & patient. I feel very taken advantage of because of his dishonest & sneaky behavior. And Im giving this dentist and staff one star because I couldnt leave a review otherwise. However the Surgeon, Dr. Arnnette and his staff that pulled all my back teeth were wonderful! Everything you would expect from an honest proffessional with good work ethics.

I've been going to Kinston Dental for more than 30 years and couldn't think of a better successor to Dr Lyn Turner than Dr Brandon Nicholson. Love everyone there! They make what could be a horrible thing a much more pleasurable experience.

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.
