The administrative staff here are top notch. They handled the scheduling and billing like true pros. Dr. K is a pleasant man but I had to go back three times for one filling. The first time he did not add the filling between the teeth. The second time an assistant took 1 hour to do a 10 minute procedure and yelled at me when I couldn't get my jaw open any more than I did. I had to take Aleve for three days because of the pain in my jaw after that. About a month after that appointment I was brushing my teeth and that part of the filling came out again (the gap part). I went back AGAIN to get it fixed and waited over an hour for my appointment. I told the scheduler when I made the appointment that on no terms would I see the same woman that was so horrible the first time, I had to actually see my dentist. That detail had not been put into the notes of my appointment so I had to wait to see my actual dentist. Don't count on the fact that the dentist is the one who will do all things. It's kind of bizarre really. My experience here for basic cleaning was just fine. I was really surprised about how badly this filling part went after that initially good visit.

Had to get a root canal done at the the Medina location. Root canal went fine but the temporary crown came off in a week and it was another week till my appointment. I though no big deal. I got my permanent crown place on and 8 days later it came off. I had to take off work to back in and get it fixed. Now my permanent crown came off again. Best part is they cannot get me in for another week. I will be going elsewhere for my next denist appointment.
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
