I have no complaints about the service I have received from Dr McKay himself I thought he was a very nice dentist and then very good work I consider him a gentle dentist. I made a mistake and did not realize I had a bill from them that I thought my spending account card would have paid for which I obviously forgot to to pay after the fact.the dental office said they have been trying to contact me since April of this particular year and I called and around August to make an appointment and that's when the reception is brought it to my attention that I told them a bill as she told me it was sent to a collection agency.I contacted the collection agency right away and made a payment arrangement.the payment arrangement was agreed through the agency that I could take about 5 months to pay that bill off.I completed my payment February of the next year and the dental office didn't get that final payment until about six weeks after my payment was made to the collection agency. the reception is made me think after I paid that bill she did not give me a time frame but she said after the bill was paid I was welcome to come back to the dentist to get extensive work done besides getting my teeth cleaned.I have had this bill paid for over a year ago now I call in to make an appointment for my oldest son and they tell me I'm a risk and they don't want my business.so I feel like she told me one thing after I accomplish what I needed to do as far as paying the bill then she changed what she had originally talked to me about back at the time when she sent the bill to the collection agency. I try to talk to her to see what was really going on and get it broke down to me and she did but she appeared a little rude and her conversation towards me. telling me how do I expect for her and her staff to get paid when really it was $400 I'm not saying that I don't understand but my employer paid over thousand dollars to them and I don't think they actually went broke or didn't have no food in their mouth after my employer paid the big bulk of the bills. she said I was a risk. I have a spending account card debt always and usually pays my bill I made a mistake and didn't know about the bill I forgot about it being a human being and sometimes that happens with people in life. I don't consider myself a rest because I do have a spending account card that will cover the charges for whatever reason I did make a mistake and did not follow thru and come down to the dental office with my card to make that payment and when the time came the side of my car would not pay for anything the year before. the collection agency waited 6 weeks to give them a final payment that I know that I paid February 6 and then that last payment went through to their office from the collection agency on March 19. even though I made a mistake aright does it make a wrong I thought the receptionist was quite rude and as much as I have gone in there and my children I think I could have been treated a little bit better due to a 400 dollar mistake. but that's okay I will take my business elsewhere I don't need to beg to have service from anybody. David McKay. my complaint is about a bill that I did honestly owe and I can say it was my fault that I did not see the bill comes in the mail. the receptionist told me they have been trying to reach me through mail since April of this particular year.I called in August of that year to make a dental appointment. the receptionist told me that they sent the bill to a collection agency.She told me that I could still come in for general cleaning but nothing more than that. I contacted the collection agency right away and set that up taylor range meant what started in september

Baylon Family Dentistry
I am a total wuss when it comes to the dentist. I hate getting my teeth cleaned, as it makes me really uncomfortable. But today I had my first crown, and two very old filings replaced at the same time, at the hands of Dr. Christine Baylon at Baylon Family Dentistry. Despite the amount of work, it was one of the most pleasant dental experiences I've ever had.The folks at Baylon Family Dentistry are extremely skilled, patient, gentle, and professional. They're also quick and efficient, minimizing the time you're laying in a prone position with your mouth full of cotton and gloved hands. Since they are pediatric dentists, they're great at putting kids, as well as anxious adults, at ease. When I say there was absolutely NO PAIN, I'm not kidding. I'm looking forward to going back to have my next crown done...or at least, I'm not avoiding it like the plague.I recommend Baylon Family Dentistry wholeheartedly to anyone who needs a great dentist, but in particular to anyone who is nervous about dental work of any magnitude. My husband and two kids are also patients for life. They have several Twin City locations (Blaine, Inver Grove Heights, Woodbury) so you have no excuse not to patronize either Dr. Rick or his wife Dr. Christine (and now their son, Dr. Nick!) Absolutely Five Stars and Two Thumbs way up!

Weber Brian T DDS
Dentistry at it's finest. The office is very tastefully decorated, a relaxed atmosphere where you are immediately welcomed. Dr. Weber is extremely knowledgeable, detail oriented, kind and warm. He takes time to provide conscientious and outstanding care for his patients. With his thorough evaluation, he leaves no stone unturned. His office puts your health and real needs first, no sales pitches here. Having had great dental care in various cities I've lived, Dr. Weber and his team have set the bar for exceptional dentistry.

The Dental Emergency Room
The Dental Emergency Room is the best! My dentist is extremely gentle on the teeth, and so knowledgeable. He always explains in detail what he is doing for you and also never tries to sell you services you do not need. If there is something that needs more attention, he will let you know what you should be doing correctly. They are always on schedule too. If you don't like your current dentist, check out the Dental Emergency Room! You will be so glad that you did.

Minnesota Orthodontics does a great job of creating the perfect atmosphere for patients. Everyone is so welcoming and caring, and the waiting area is tailored for kids to enjoy themselves and almost forget they are at an appointment.
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.
