Dr. Kugler is a good dentist, but we were told by his staff that they accept our insurance. When we were billed $490 and my wife questioned why, she was told they only accept a portion of our insurance. We were never told that or we wouldn't have come to this practice. When my wife asked for some assistance with the bill, she was told by the staff that "it is not our job to find out what insurance plan you have". We will never go back

He's a great dentist whose main concern is you get quality care. My family and I have been going to him for at least five years. Once, he sent me to a specialist for a root canal due to a nerve close to the root. He'd rather see me get quality care than do it himself and risk my well being. He's also worked with us to make payments unlike other dentists who expect full payment up front.

Dr. Bassig is really caring and friendly with everyone.He will explan things in detail, so that anyone would understand. He is one of the few Doctors that really listens.Very down to earth with a sense of humor.
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
