Elm Creek Dental
Dr. Carter and his staff were very professional during my 2 visits to Elm Creek Dental. The office is clean and organized and it is in an excellent location. I recommend Elm Creek Dental to family and friends.

Maple Grove Family Dental Clinic
STAY AWAY FROM MAPLE GROVE FAMILY DENTAL Super Disappointed. We were referred to Maple Grove Family Dental by a friend. We enjoyed about a year of positive dental work and good experiences with this provider. In May I left my job to stay home with the children and our insurance changed. This provider was listed as an In-Network provider for our new insurance. Today, TWO HOURS before a scheduled visit I was called and told that they will no longer see us because the amount they collect on the new insurance we are covered under is "Nominal and not much". They also told me that it is the doctors CHOICE as to whether or not they will continue to see us on the insurance and they DENIED us - why, because my kids are young and will likely need dental visits over the next 10 or so years? And might I mention that NOT ONCE did they ask if I was willing to pay out of pocket for any services - even today's scheduled cleaning for my 7 year old son. Read between the lines - PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT ON EMPLOYER PROVIDED HEALTH INSURANCES ARE NOT TREATED FAIRLY. A dental office or doctors office should allow existing patients to convert if their situation changes, not deny them, ESPECIALLY if they are a listed as an IN-NETWORK provider. Basically - we only see people with private dental insurance and screw you. And I was told the only reason they appear as a provider is because the only people they do see with any MNSure insurance were "mentally handicapped people". How disgusting. DO NOT USE THIS DENTAL OFFICE - God forbid you choose to stay home with your kids, or lose your job and your shiny employer provided benefits. It seems to be all they care about.

Here is a sincere dentist, kind and caring, exceptional and professional. I cannot say enough about how good it feels to be seen as a person and not a dollar sign. Quality service with a personal feel.;
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.
