I decided to have a second look based on my experience at Bright Smiles (Decay Underneath) Family Dentistry. You can see my review on their page. Long review summarized: I had gone in for a routine cleaning and was told that I had three small cavities (didn't offer to fill them until January), needed a crown, and my wisdom teeth wouldn't bother me for a year.I called them on Wednesday, August 22 and explained my situation - no insurance after a week and a half and wanting my fillings done and his opinion on a crown. The soonest they could get me in was the next Tuesday; though, this was much better than any other doctor I called. Dr. Austin's facilities were wonderful, clean, homey, and just plain nice to be in. I didn't feel like people were watching me (Bright Smiles you could see from the "waiting room" all the way to the back wall and all of the "exam rooms" in between). The assistant listened to everything I had to say about my previous experience and what I would like done. The doctor was patient, friendly, and knew what he was talking about. He answered all of my questions without me even needing to ask them. Anything I did ask, he answered.He explained the process of the numbing and fillings and made it as painless as possible. It took maybe 1.5 hours for the entire check in, procedure, and check out process.Dr. Austin's second opinion about the crown ($500 at BS(DU)FD even with my insurance - a $1000 procedure without insurance) was that he would never have even noticed that the old filling had any problems or believed that something would need to be done about it even remotely soon. (Seems like BS(DU)FD just wants to make a pretty penny.) Although the prices for Dr. Austin were a little more than I would like to spend for my teeth, I would much rather pay two times what I expected for a much better experience. Finally, Dr. Austin explained that wisdom teeth are extremely unpredictable. I should be fine, though I might have minor pain - oralgel would help with the discomfort until insurance could cover the procedure.I would definitely recommend him to any and everyone.

Dr. James R. Yeary, DDS
This is by far the best dental office I've ever been to. Dr. James Yeary is amazing. His staff gets an A+ all around. I couldn't be happier with my smile. In fact, he's made me smile more. He's changed my opinion about going to the dentist. The entire staff makes you feel at ease. Most of the offices that I’ve been to in the past make you feel small. Not them, they give advice, recommend a treatment plan and then it's up to you to follow. I followed and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. My SMILE is perfect! "Thank you" just doesn't seem enough. Visit this office, you will not be disappointed. They are changing lives, one mouth at a time :)

Aspen Dental
Great! Going to the dentist has been a "bad experience" all my life. Not anymore. Recently went to Aspen to get dentures. Everyone there is REALLY caring and goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Prices much more affordable than any other dentist I have ever visited. Really glad I found them.

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.
