Let me start off by saying all the complaints you read are true!!! Then the oldest trick in the books all your teeth need to be pulled because you have an infection on your roots. Really???I had an appointment at 830 am. I was there at 8 am. I left at 11 am. Really. I don't come to dentist to often. This is why. I am NOT here to poked and experimented on. Then be told one of the oldest tricks in the book for more money. Really I wasn't born yesterday. She the person who examined me didn't answer my questions. Told me that all my upper teeth needed to be pulled because they had root infections. Then when I asked why would that might have happened. I told her that I don't eat candy. Don't drink soda. I brush my teeth after each meal. It makes me crazy to have things in between my teeth. Why would that happen?? She said she didn't have a make up on me she couldn't tell me why. So that told me SCAM!!!!! She was trying to get more money out of me and this program I was referred to them with. If this one program didn't send me here I wouldn't have come. Trust me when I am done this place will NOT be aligned with this program. I had to wait for 2 1/2 hours for an x-ray. Ok he was nice don't get me wrong. But really. This place is under staffed. I haven't heard back from them in a month now. I seriously doubt I will. I am planning on getting my records from them and running fast. Filling a complaint with the CEO. Then to the state dentistry board.. Maybe we will get lucky and this place will get better. I suggest everyone else doing so as well. By the way I would give this place a minus 20 if I could. That's why there are people in the world who still don't trust dentist. This place in exhibit A on why you shouldn't. Do your homework first before ever doing anything through this company PERIOD!!!

Xu Lili DDS
i agree with all the one star reviews. she is the worst and just wants to make money. first of all, she did not train in the us. and even if she did, her mentality is all about they money which is completey evil. she has ruined my teeth and drilled so many holes that she called fillings. she purposely did messy fillings so that my teeth would decay, and i don't even believe i had that many cavities in the first place. she is also so stingy with anasthesia. once she pulled a molar without enough anasthesia and i felt the second half of the process and she still didn't stop and give me more anasthesia. her staff are extremely unprofessional and make you nervous. but she is the worst. she doesnt clean cavities properly before fillings, and when i saw black underneath my new fillings, she pretended to not see the obvious black marks. she is a clown and con artist of a dentist.

if you have midi-cal or are poor, do not go here. She, the dentist with the fake nose gave me many reasons why she would not work on my mouth. She did not even try and referred me out to specialists. She made me feel like crap for being poor: accusing me of being a drug user (i am not), reccomended four extractions unneccessarily, would not work on my teeth until i got an $800 deep cleaning. Office would not turn over estimates to me and so forth,Learn to respect poor people,

Beautiful office and very nice staff! Everyone was very professional, yet personable. I called randomly as a new patient for a wisdom tooth extraction, and I was seen and treated that same day! I felt reassured during the procedure and had a surprisingly low pain recovery. With the insurance plan I had I found them totally reasonably priced, and even though my procedure ended up being slightly more than they had originally quoted they honored the original estimate rather than increasing the price. I plan on returning regularly for my dental checkups!
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.
