There is no possible way the reviewer below went to the same dentist's office. I was greeted by a professional and welcoming staff in an immaculate and very nice office. I was called in to an exam room before I even made it through the new patient forms. I have severe anxiety of dentists and Mayra, the dental tech was THE MOST kind and calming person ever. I was previously quoted $11,000 to fix all of my dental concerns by a different dentist in Boca. Dr. Ehlers, however, met me with a kind and friendly demeanor and assured me that the condition of my teeth were not as bad as I feared and would be able to fix them. I actually inquired about the whitening product and he said that is not something I should be considering at this time. The price I was quoted was a small fraction of what the other dentist wanted to charge me. I am now scheduled to get my beautiful smile back next week and I am confident that I am in great hands. My husband has now switched to Dr. Ehlers and he will be treating my 10 year old son, as well. I highly recommend this practice and if you have dental anxiety, make sure you ask to see Mayra when booking your appointment. You will feel like you are in the most competent and caring hands.

Pino, Tomas DDS
He/s the best ever!!!! I've been seeing him for years, His staff, office and Dr. Pino is professional and he cares about his patients. He's like the doctor's back in the day who really cared about their patients and wasn't about the money. Doctors like Dr Pino are no longer around..I wish he was an overall Dr. because I would have him for everything!!! He's the best! He's the ONLY dentist my family uses.. He's AWESOME. :)

I went in to have a chipped front tooth repaired, Dr. Pino did a very good job. I was done in less than an hour and the fee was less than I thought it would be. The office was nice, clean and the staff was friendly. I will definitely recommend him to others

This place is by far the best dentist I have ever been, Janet and Ana are the best. They were not trying to hit me with any unnecessary treatment like other dentists I have been before

Absolutely LOVE this dentist AND staff. I recommend EVERYONE who asks me for a dentist. My husband John (rip) HATED the dentist. Dr. Kelman was the only one he would see! WORD!!

I went in for an implant consultation. Met the doctor - very knowledgeable. Christine at the front desk was extra nice. Looking forward to starting treatment there.

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.
