Bartlett Dental Associates
While the staff is wonderful and I am happy with the work that was done, it has been apparent from day 1, their main concern seems to be money. After the lady scheduled the appointment, we discussed payment arrangements. I had a hefty bill and stated I would make 2 payments withing 1 month. I made the first one the day of the work and while I was heavily medicated before my surgery, was questioned intently on the other half of the payment and that "it wasn't right" and "she didn't have the authority". Every call after that was about money. Not, "how are you"? "Are you ready to schedule your next appointment?" But, have you paid. Even after I paid in full, I was still being questioned about the money as if I had not paid it. Now, my last visit may have to be scheduled "next year" because of insurance???? even though I have "paid in full" for quite some time now. I must reiterate, the doctors and staff are wonderful but I do not feel they are truly concerned with me...just their money.

Dove Family Dentistry
I have been a patient of Dr. Dove's since he started at the Whitehaven office several years ago. When he opened his own practice I was happy to follow him to his current office. I have received exceptional service and I sent my elderly mom to him and I was impressed with how Dr. Dove took the time to walk my mother through his establishment as they became aquainted. The staff went above and beyond to make my mom's first appointment a nice experience. There is no limit to how many people can choose denistry as an occupation, but there are few who are committed to connecting with the community both internally and publicly. Dr. Joseph Dove has excelled in doing both. Thank you for sharing your gift with the south Dr. Dove. Ro

Dove Family Dentistry
After my dentist retired, I searched for a new dentist for my family. After seeing several dentist that had no personality as well as treated us as outsiders, I found Dove Family Dentistry. The environment was very inviting from all staff. It's been over 4 years and we are still patients. I feel that my thoughts count, which is very important to me. They strive to make our visit as comfortable as possible. Dr. Dove and his staff are very sympathetic in that most people do not like going to the dentist and it very apparent in the way they care for us.

Hickory Hill Family Dentistry
I was so afraid of Dentist Dr. LEE MYERS and his staff took really good care of me IN had a tooth extraction and a deep cleaning. I am 48 years old and never had a teeth cleaning because of my fear of dentist. I recommend Dr. Myers to anyone who is afraid of the dentist. Once you leave his office you will never be afraid again. I will have my teeth clean every three months from now on. Dr. Myers and his staff took really good care of me. Thank you dr. Myers for your great servise and perfect hospitality. My name is Gloria B. Anderson

Stacie Anderson DDS
Dentistry is finally a good experience for me since I began seeing Dr. Anderson! I had to have some major work done in my mouth but was afraid and untrusting of other dentists I had tried, Going in for a cleaning and progressing from there...she explained everything in detail and assurance that there would be no painful hurting or ugly appearance while the work was being done, and I felt comfortable in her competent hands. I am really glad I found a dentist that I can trust without fear. I highly recommend her for your dentistry needs.

Dove Family Dentistry
This is the best Dental office I have ever been to- and with two daughters, I have been to several. Dr. Dove is extremely kind and patient. His entire staff, from the receptionists to the technicians and even the ladies in accounting, were extremely professional. When I could not afford to pay my entire bill they worked out a payment plan that fit my budget. Everyone was respectful and easy to work with. My entire family now goes to this office and all would say the same!

Boyd W Argo DDS
Boyd Argo has been our family dentist since 1988 and has never disappointed. Tina, the hygienist has also been our go to girl for just as long. I've never found such care and concern before. Both are very gentle on the patient and Doctor Argo is simply amazing with the novocaine or whatever is use for deadening the pain. You just don't feel it. Awesome. Every visit is like its with family and a social occasion. Come on by.

I had a root canal done here. Nice staff! My problem was under a crown and I was very nervous about this having to be done. I take one star away because I did not feel the DDS was very personable. He was nice and smiled but I just was unsure of this process. With that said, who cares he did a wonderful job and I am pain free in just 12 hours! No pain meds needed.
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.
