Great general dentist! Dr. McFarlane is very nice and personable. The staff make you feel comfortable, even at the dentist office. 😀
Dr. Mike is very professional and eased all of my fears with my first dental surgery. I needed a gum graft and it went so much better than I had expected. My front teeth look so much prettier and now I smile all of the time. I really liked how his assistants were always there to answer my questions before and after the surgery and I love going to his hygienist for follow-up cleanings. The office is so gorgeous too! I highly recommend!!
I had my teeth cleaned by Derek today and he did a very good job. I always have anxiety issues when I go to the dentist but Derek does such a good job that I actually enjoyed my session
As a rule, I do not write many referrals. However I can tell you that Terri Beeler is one of the finest people and dental technicians I have ever experienced. I have had extensive dental work throughout my life and have so much respect for Dr. Salmons and the entire staff. Even though I may move out of town, I plan on returning to Knoxville to go to the dentist in this office.
Dr. Barole/Dentalworks has been my dentist since 2012. I have been very happy with the dental care I receive in this office. Rose, the office manager, is friendly and efficient. The hygienists, Marilyn and Cindy, do an awesome job. Dr. Barole is kind, caring, and professional. I worked in dentistry for 25 years and I have a good knowledge of the field. Dentalworks is an excellent place for high quality dental care.
Dr. Salmons and his entire staff is superb! My family has called Dr. Salmons our dentist for probably 25+ yrs. His kind, tender, and passionate care is definitely appreciated and highly valued. I have always been most impressed with the level of precision he and his staff demonstrate and I am always well pleased when I leave his office!! I highly respect him and his outstanding team of professionals who treat me like a member of their family! Kuddo's to Dr. Salmons and his team! C. Norton
Staff was more than professional and polite.The tech who did the cleaning was very skilled and courteous. She had a very light touch when cleaning. When someone scrapes your teeth to clean them, it usually is not fun, however in this case, she was very skilled and did not touch a single gum and i was able to relax and sit back. I barely felt her cleanng the teeth. And when the Dr. came in for exam, she was professional and had a great chair side manner. I now take my entire family there. And she is just as good with kids.(mine is 12). Brian k.
Dr. Phillips used a composite filling on a molar instead of the industry standard amalgam. As a result, he billed $169 at the time plus $258 after insurance for two fillings that should have cost $40 after insurance. Further, my daughter received an infection because he had to renumb and did not use a sterile needle. Further, his receptionist announced my social security number to the open waiting room and did not think it was a big deal because she mistakenly believed that no one else was in the room. In my opinion, he is an incompetent crook. AVOID!!
I highly recommend Dr. Orr and the staff at Daily Denture. They were kind, patient and professional. I have several family members that have seen Dr. Orr and have been very satisfied.
Beautiful facility....staff was amazing.....surgery went better than expected.....I look forward to my follow up visits....if you are in need of periodontal surgery this is the place!!!
- 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.
