I've been a patient of Capeside Dental and Dr. Artley for over 10 years. As the result of going through radiation therapy for cancer of the palate, I've had numerous dental problems. Dr. Artley and staff have successfully addressed all of the issues that I've had. He and his staff have always been courteous and accommodated my needs.

Awful Dental practice, unethical treatment and using outdated procedures. A compression was made leaving behind a metal object in my tooth resulting in bleeding from my tongue and unable to talk. Since the procedure, I immediately canceled future appointments, and since the incident, the staff has refused to reimburse Cigna for a claim they processed when the “service was not rendered”. After five attempts to contact the office, they have denied that the check was submitted providing no specific date of when it was issued. I now have a new Dentist located in Viera called Sundance and have to say I’m very pleased with the experience embracing new technology making the dental procedures less invasive and painful. Plus, the Dentist was able to redo my cap which was molded incorrectly and inserted inappropriately.

I am often hesitant to post good reviews to professionals, partly because one should expect a good service. It is when such professionals and staff consistently exceed our expectations then I believe they should be entitled to a good review. Dr. Assaf, and certainly his staff, deserve an outstanding review for the professional work they did for all members of my family and more importantly, the genuine care that we have received over the years. I highly recommend the services of Discount Family Dental to all my friends. You will be impressed with the professional work as well as the pleasant and cordial relationship they extend.

I was very very pleased with my experience. I have major anxiety going to the dentist because of so many bad experiences. This was my first pleasant experience in over a decade. The dentist, Dr. H, and his assistant were very gentle and were able to ease my anxiety simply by the way he handled my mouth. The staff was all very kind and knowledgeable. It takes a while to get an appointment but it was definitely well worth the wait for me! I would highly recommend this office to everyone.

My wife went in to get JUST an xray which was scheduled mind you...these worthless human beings tried to scam her in to getting her teeth cleaned first saying that it was procedure to have your teeth cleaned before they could xray her teeth. After catching them in a lie they finally said that they could not xray her teeth lol unbelievable!!! They are extremely rude and unprofessional...this place should be shut down!!

First impressions are the key to repeat consumers and word of mouth is the best marketing tool period! I made a new patient appointment. The moment we walked into the lobby we were greeted with front desk associates with their backs turned to us chatting about their personal lives. we received our new patient paperwork, sat down and the very unprofessional associate proceeds to speak to us still in her chair yelling through the lobby over the high counter and had to repeat her self as I was unable to hear her. Mind you no one working behind the counter has smiled yet...hello you work in a dental office if nothing else its your job to smile! Finally, got into the chair the Tech and Dentist were both pleasant. Upon check out still received the same unprofessional attitude from the front office staff. As a consumer with a plethora of healthcare options my family and I will not be going back!

Nice office and people. However, the Dentist couldn't get my filling to stay and it took FOUR visits to get it right. Needless to say I am NOT going back until they get better Dentist!

Let's be real: going to the dentist isn't fun when you need work done. It can be uncomfortable and painful and take a fair amount of time out of the day. That being said, when an office goes above and beyond to make the experience as painless, even pleasant, as possible, it's greatly appreciated. My dentist, Dr. Thomas, is a self-proclaimed perfectionist (isn't that what you want in a dentist?) with excellent craftsmanship and technique. Donna, the lead dental assistant, has unrivaled interpersonal and professional skills. Toni and Bobbi in the front office (along with the rest of the office staff), have gone above and beyond to accommodate my schedule (I teach in Rockledge but live near BND Palm Bay) and helped me finance my procedures. I'm never left waiting, everything is immaculate, and they staff truly care. I urge you to consider their location.
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.
