No one wants to have a tooth extracted, but I had to, and I found Dr. Chen and his staff to be an excellent provider of care. He and his staff are very professional. Dr. Chen is sure of himself, but yet very gentle. Dr. Chen is my new dentist of choice! Dr. Chen explained the procedure thoroughly and talked to me about replacement options he could provide once the gum and bone healed. He sensed my anxiety and offered me nitrous and music to enjoy during the procedure. Although, I had never had nitrous before, I accepted because I was quite nervous. I had a menu of music to choose from and headphones to enjoy. His assistant started the nitrous and music selection about 10 minutes before the procedure. After about 3 min I didn’t have a care in the world. While Dr. Chen extracted my tooth, I was laying on the beach with a refreshing drink in hand, so I felt :). The procedure went swiftly, without pain or agony, and I was on my way in no time. Dr. Chen even gave me a surprise call the next morning to check on my condition, and to see if I had any questions. It's been one now, and my gum is closed and healing well. You won’t be disappointed! Thank you Dr. Chen & Staff!

Best Care DentaL II
Update: 4/15 - We had some major billing issues to start, but after that was addressed, I went back to get a refund and they offered to get me taken care of. I accepted. Since then, we have not had any more issues. I realize now it was just a mistake, and not any shady practices. So we have been doing business ever since. "I still feel like they should give me some type of concessions for the problems, and mistakes that happened", but they are at least being very thorough, since the problem. Fun group to work with, very knowledgeable, and getting me taken car of.

I have really appreciated him and the staff @ Best Care Dental because I have been having serious SEVERE PAIN for 3mos; and they always make me feel as though they care. Now I will admit that this dealing that I've been going through is costly so far I've dished out $1064.00. But they have been very professional and will work with you/and yr insurance co.

I don't understand the negative reviews at all! I've had a positive experience at smile zone dental clinic EVERYTIME I go. I support Dr.Parkers business and appreciate his great work. I came in with a mouth full of cavities and came back with a wonderful smile. Maybe if you all had insurance or had better hygiene habits then you wouldn't be complaining. It is a private office with a great location and a wonderful staff! Thanks Dr.Parker! I'll be back soon.

Check this dentistry out. There is no pain and they keep your teeth pearly white. They are very professional and you get a chance to watch your favorite cable show if you have to wait and you WON'T have to wait long. You will love it and look forward to returning to get a teeth cleaning. I got the invisilign's and get hundreds of complements everyday. That does wonders to my self esteem.

My primary care physician is Dr. Kinsey. As a new patient she took the time to hear my concerns and work with me. The office staff as well as the nursing staff are friendly and helpful. I would send anyone to this office.

Dr Lanier is wonderful! I, like most people, hate going to the dentist, but she made me feel comfortable and explained all of the procedures clearly. You can't go wrong with her.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
