Bippo's Place For Smiles
I saw the previous rating and felt this place deserved a better rating. I've used Bippos for both of my kiddos and have always loved them. My oldest had a few cavities when I first brought her in. Because of her age and the fact that she was freaked out I opted for her to be strapped down. The facility does not do that without your signed permission. My daughter was crying a lot, so was I, but if she got too bad they stopped, unstrapped her and let me cuddle with her until she calmed down. They also played a cartoon show or movie for her while they were working on her teeth. They only capped 1 tooth then because it is too much for the child to do more at once so I had to bring her back abother day to do the other. My kiddos love the play area in the lobby. They love the little toys and balloons they get to choose after they get their teeth done. The girls who clean their teeth and all are very friendly, play and laugh with them, they even tell them each step they are going to do in a way that they will understand. The only issue I had was being told they could do everything the hospital pediatric dentist could do for my other child who is autistic. When I brought him in I found out they could not. That can only do a cleaning for him if he will let him but if he needs to be sedated or anything I had to bring him to the hospital pediatric dentist. If I had known that I would have brought him there in the first place. Although I was disappointed about that I still highly recommend Bippos Place. Would love to see more of them around. I drive from Chalmette to there.

City Park Dental Care
City Park Dental is beyond amazing ! Dr. Linhuber and his staff are wonderful, they make you feel comfortable and at ease. I’m a mother of a 7 year old and had a horrible experience with my son having work done in the past at another dentist office. What I saw happen to my son in the dentist chair had me traumatized. [(Traumatizing experience) as a mother you want the best for your child and to protect them. My son had to be strapped down in a restraint jacket after he told the doctor he felt pain. He was crying, chocking, and sweating profusely. I felt so helpless because I couldn’t do anything. I never let him go back there again.] I told the staff at City Park Dental what we had already been through in the past and how I won’t let my son go through that again. City Park Dental gave me different options on things they can do to make the experience as comfortable as possible, they were not pushy and didn’t forced me to make a decision right away. My son had to have a dental crown put in and that experience was amazing, I was able to let go of my fears. They really made us feel like family.

Jolly Rupa Dr
I am new to New Orleans, moving from Wisconsin. I had been going to the same dentist my whole life and I was in desperate need of a cleaning. I have no dental insurance so I looked up dental offics and found NOLA Dental Care. I was able to make a cleaning within the week I wanted. When I got there, I was able to have my parking validated, which they told me about when I made the appointment. I was called back right away and filling out the new patient papers. Carrie was the hygienist and she was terrific!! Dr. Jolly came in and did her exam and looked at my x-rays. I did not have any cavities! YAY! She did a fabulous job and we chatted for a couple minutes about my hometown and she told me some great places to eat in the city. When I went to check out, Trish told me about this membership program they have for patients with no insurance. I definitely signed up for it because it is awesome! I already have my 6 month cleaning scheduled and will be there!!

Kool Smiles
Brought my daughter in to receive to caps. In my mind, I was thinking, "this is going to be a long and boring wait", didn't go that way. I only had a 15-20 minute wait, while I waited, my daughter was aktually having on The Little Slide or whatever you Kall it. Once we were kalled to the Bakk, the shorty, Edwrione, was Kool as ever, from Beginning to End, she kept a smile on my daughter's face, she's a Bigg Kry baby, her Hilarious Personality was very helpful. She kept a smile on my face, she aktually held a nice konversation with me, I never attended any of my daughter's appointments, but I definitely do not Regret going today, I Like Her. There's another appointment Koming soon, hopefully, she takes my Little Girl as a patient again ! She's Wonderful Yo, Foreals !

Dr. Gordon E. Fletcher, DDS
Dr. Fletcher is patient, thorough and conscientious. He was totally responsive to my needs and willing to work with my particular situation-- namely being 8 months pregnant. Most dentists wouldn't even see me, but he was happy to put in a much-needed crown and a filling quickly and skillfully.He was totally nice about working at an incline that was more comfortable for me and the baby, and his nursing support staff are awesome. I've seen the sign on Claiborne Ave forever, but never thought to see him until he was recommended by another dentist who wouldn't treat pregnant women. I'll never go to another one. Plan on bringing my kids here.

Kool Smiles
I have been to many dentist offices around New Orleans and I have to say this is the best kid friendly office I have ever encounter. The dental assistance interact with the children and explains what's going on today with the their visit. There's one Dental Assistant who I notice that's great with children and also willing to help her name was Jill Coleman. When I was there with my children I notice she was moving around a lot helping with front area and helping other dental assistance. She also explained to my child what she was going to do and ask if they had any questions I was also ask. . KOOL SMILES IS THE PLACE TO GO.

Parker Dental Center
Dr. Parker and his staff is the best members of the dental field I have encountered. Dr. Parker is knowledgable and compassionate; moreover, he shares his schooling with his patients to keep them in good dental health. Since Katrina, the office has been updated with the latest equipment. Watch TV while getting your teeth cleaned. *He was constantly concerned if I was experiencing any pain. I wasn't; he had properly sedated the area. Great place. I can't say anymore, but go go go. You won't regret it. - It's on N. Claiborne Ave. *= Number one for me.

Kool Smiles
I've visited Kool smiles a few times. I bring my daughters here to recieve their cleanings. My daughter was scheduled for crowns and was really terrified. Edwrione the dental assistant helped my daughter to feel really comfortable with the procedure. She went above and beyond and gave her plenty of attention to make sure she was comfortable. She did so by Making her laugh telling her jokes, they sung songs and discussed cartoons. Just by doing so Edwrione helped my daughter get through the procedure. Thank you Kool smiles for employing someone who takes their job serious enough to go above and beyond.

Nola Dental Care
Dr. Jolly and her staff are true professionals! I’ve been going to her since 2009 and every time I go in for a visit I am treated respectfully with all of my questions answered. I recently had a dental emergency and was worked in the same day that I had called. After discussing things with Dr. Jolly and my hygienist, I was given options with no pressure do anything that day. Dr. Jolly’s office also has affordable solutions that take advantage of new technologies. Beautiful office and super friendly staff…this is a dentist office that I enjoy going to!

City Park Dental Care
My experience is favorable. I have seen Dr. Linhuber for the past 3 years and find him and his staff caring and efficient. I like when he uses his mouth camera to show me things he wants to talk about that may be of concern. I also like that it does not hurt when he fixes my teeth. The laughing gas helps me to forget about the strange noises when my teeth are filled. I do wish that the office was open on Friday afternoons, but the early morning hours are ok. All in all a good choice for me and my family.
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.
