We were able to get an appointment within a week because of a painful tooth my daughter had. When we arrived, the office is actually a remodeled home. Limited parking was available. We were briefly greeted and handed paperwork when we entered. The waiting room had limited seating. We were called back in less than 10 minutes. Our visit took approximately one hour for cleaning and x-ray. We were under the impression that my 7 year-old daughter would have the work done for a filling/crown, but she was referred to a pediatric dentist for sedation, because she is anxious (but not resistant/combative). The hygienist we worked with was very attentive and friendly, my daughter enjoyed the visit and smiled the whole time. We only saw Dr. Mizell long enough to say she was referring us, so I really can't rate HER, but the rest of the staff was great. The office itself seems to be a work in progress-- while some parts look new, other were in need of aesthetic repair. There was also a DOG behind the reception desk, in a kennel, just FYI for anyone allergic!I am satisfied enough to Dr. Mizell's office with my children again in the future.

My family has been going to these guys for over 15 years, ever since my Dad retired from the Navy. The staff as well as the doctors have always been friendly, professional, and courteous to us. Both Father(James) and Son(Jaime) have a very calm demeanor, a great chair-side manner, and do quality work. Trust me, I know. I have had major work done by them (9 crowns and counting) due to an enamel deficiency, and they have ALWAYS made my comfort a priority.My name is Christopher Schnatz and I would definitely recommend this dentist's office.also they accept Care Credit for those of you without insurance. ++

My five year had her first appointment with Dr. White today (not her 1st dental appointment ever, just the first with him). I was nervous to go after reading the poor reviews, but we had a fantastic experience! Yes, I stayed in the waiting area and she went alone and it was no big deal. The door was kept open and I could hear my child the entire time. Everyone who worked there was super friendly. I can only imagine there being issues if you have a child who doesn't behave and in that case you should be reviewing yourself and parenting skills...not this dental office. I would recommend him highly.

I went to Dr. Covan because he was very close to where I live/worked. At first seemed great, even though he was not in my PPO and I had to pay a lot for services. Then he became condescending and also told me I did not have a temporary crown on a tooth (which I DID have), and told me that my tongue stud had caused a filling to be broken (which it did NOT, it was due to bruxing) but he wished to argue that case with me. Also, he talked over me to his assistant all the time, just seeming to ignore that I was his patient right there at his hands. Not very professional and WAY too expensive.

I called them because I broke a tooth. I was surprised they could fit me in the same day on an emergency basis. I called a couple of other local dentists and the earliest appointment I could get was in two weeks. I thought I would need a crown, but x-rays showed the root was decayed and would not hold a post. I needed a partial plate. Dr. Sonnen explained my options and I was not pressured which option to choose, I am very satisfied with the results.I found Dr. Sonnen and her staff to be not only professional, but friendly.

Dr Hart and his team are the greatest, my teen age daughter was so nervouse about going to the dentist but Dr Hart and the hygienist made her feel so comfortable that on her next visit I didn't even have to drive he she said she would be fine going by herself and you know what I didn't even have to miss work, which reminds me on her first visit the scheduled her in at 7:30 am and they had her in and out in time for me to get to work on time

Sims, Clay, DDS
Staff was not prepared. Me and my husband felt the overall experience was very scattered. Many employees stumbled over words and did not seem happy. The office was fun and interactive. That was the only wow. Doctor Sims was very nice but not as engaged as we would hope a doctor would be in a new patient.

Dr Campbell is a great guy and I really love having him as my Dentist. I have a big fear of Dentists and Dr Campbell is such a gentle spirit and really puts you at ease. I am so lucky to have found him. My whole office uses him. Thank you to all his staff and to the best Dentist I have ever seen.

Dr. Covan & his team really go above & beyond to take care of their patients. The staff is very helpful & friendly, & Dr. Covan is the best around in my opinion. If you are apprehensive about going to the dentist like most people, don't be. Go see Dr. Covan
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.
