You guys when I tell you that Ms. Britney is a miracle worker!! When my daughter and I was first brought back to the procedure room my daughter was upset and wouldn't stop crying, Ms Britney sat her down and explained to her that she wouldn't hurt her , she told her she had sugar bugs on her tooth and that they was going to use a special toothbrush to get them off, but ofcourse my daughter was still scared, so next she gave her coloring sheets and began coloring with her asking her what grade she was in , what's her favorite color etc, basically making my daughter feel comfortable, next thing I know my daughter was laying back doing her fillings she explained to her every step of the way, she has a very imaginative mind lol, but it worked, now my daughter can't wait to come back and see Dr.Elfert and ms Britney .

My daughter had a 4:00 appointment to remove her wisdom teeth. I was previously quoted a cost. That day it was $215 higher than what I was quoted��������. By the time my daughter was called to the back it was around 4:45. They would not let me back there with her��������. In less than 5 minutes my daughter and the assistant came back to the front. The assistant called me in a room and told me the orthodontist has to leave. I asked why she said he said he has to prepare for the next day.���������������� This makes no sense. We waited a whole month for this appointment. He only removes wisdom teeth once a month. Now we will have wait even longer because school is starting or I can find another place to do it. Very disappointed ����������������������������������������For the orthodontist.

When I came into the facility today it was very clean; I was greeted with a smile by Ms. Brandi; she was very nice and helpful with the questions I had in reference to the paperwork. Ms. Keisha was also helpful when I had some insurance questions. Krystal Joseph is the most knowledgeable dental assistant I have every had. She was very helpful and concerned about my son's welfare. Everyone was so nice! I would recommend this office to EVERYONE!! :)

I had my 5yo son who had never been seen here before. Called they got me in same day, staff was great, dentist was overly comforting to my son. From walking in to working with Brandi all the way till scheduling appointments for all three kids; accommodating me at the end with Kiesha. I am very blessed we found our new forever Dentist for my babies.

Tips & Advices
Dental hygienists are required to attend continuing education classes, and the amount of continuing education that is needed varies from state to state. Depending on the state, dental hygienists must renew their licenses every one, two, or three years. A certain amount of continuing education is necessary to successfully have this license renewed.
Dental hygienists can perform teeth whitening. This procedure is used to brighten a discolored smile. It's possible to whiten teeth at home, but you'll often get faster results if you turn the process over to a trained and skilled professional. Dentists and dental hygienists often use stronger bleaches to whiten teeth than those that are available to consumers over the counter.
The costs associated with getting the education required to become a dental hygienist depends on the type of degree chosen. For an associate's degree, expect to spend an average of $22,000. For a bachelor's degree, the average cost rises to $36,000. For a master's degree, it would take an additional $30,000 on top of the costs associated with getting a bachelor's degree.
It takes a minimum of two years to become a dental hygienist. This is the time required to obtain the associate's degree that qualifies them for licensing in a particular state. After obtaining a degree, they'll need to pass national, state, and regional exams to begin working as a dental hygienist.
The are certain key differences between a dental hygienist and a dental assistant. A dental assistant performs tasks such as disinfecting instruments, managing patients' dental records, and assisting dentists during procedures. Dental hygienists perform a more advanced set of tasks, such as polishing teeth and removing tartar, plaque, and stains.
