The staff was great. Very informative and thorough. Sydni was very knowledgeable about my insurance and treatment plan. She took the time to go step by step with me and make sure I fully understood exactly what was to be done. Very pleased with my visit here!

Made us pay up front and then double billed our insurance company and won't provide a refund. All this to cement a cap that stayed in for 10 mins. and when we did it ourselves with glue from CVS, it stayed in for 3 days until we could see a real dentistHorrible !

I was so afraid to visit the dentist! Dr. Bumgardner listened to my concerns, and together we planned a way to move forward to improve my dental health. Wonderful experience.

Had horrible experience with their billing service. They don't know their job. Yes, if you want pay $167.00 for simple 2 teeth filling after insurance covered 80% then this is a good place to go. Good luck !

The staff was never straight forward about not participating with our insurance carriers. We have never experienced this with other offices. Other offices are very upfront in stating if they participate with specific providers or not. We discovered over $1,000 later in bills they do not participate with our dental carriers. Now, we are having to use our wedding gift money to pay for dental expenses; Very upsetting. They give you a bunch of free crap when you become a new patient. Keep your free crap and be honest with people.

Had bad experience but it happened more than once. Also took 3 months to get the discount on my whitening they told me i would get. Had to fight to get it applied. Alot of false advertising and inexperienced staff. Fine another dentist.

I am "one of those people" who is terrified of dentists.. I, a 43 yo woman cried in his chair.. He held my hand and told me he was here for me, and would never allow anyone on his staff to hurt me. I now look forward to going.. My husband & 16 yo son also love them also.
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.
