If you're a Dentist hater, I'm sure you have your reasons, and yet I'll bet it's not actually dentists you hate. It's all the stuff a dentist does that creeps you out - the drilling, filling, and billing parts.Who can blame you for that? A dental chair can combine the sum of all fears... with pain, needles, doctors, confined-spaces, loud noises.It's no big surprise so many people hate going to the dentist.Being afraid of the dentist means different things to different people. Maybe it's the thought that treatment will hurt, or that the sounds and smells bring back memories of bad experiences as a child."Some people have such bad dental phobia that they haven't seen a dentist for years. It's common to hear from someone in their twenties or thirties or even older who hasn't been to the dentist since childhood. This was me. The good news is that Dr. Steven Scott understand his patients' fears. I interviewed Steven and his staff three times before I sat in his chair, and to be completely honest, the first time I was so scared. But with a combination of kindness and gentleness he can do a lot to make dental treatment stress free. I have been his patient end for over 3 years, and I'm coming up to being completely finished with my treatment plan. He and his staff are the best in the business. You can get an appointment at 6am or 7pm Mon -Wed. The chairs he has are the top of the line. He has tvs in all the ceilings too. And the high tech full X-ray machine is just awesome. He and his team really work with their patients so you can fully understand what it's going. To cost before you do it. He also takes just about every insurance. I strongly recommend Steven Scott and his team for all your dental needs. Tell them Chef Marc Sent you.

I had been suffering with a tooth that needed a root canal for months and months, but was unemployed and couldn't afford the deductible that 3 different Dental groups had quoted me, even though i had great dental insurance through my husbands employer. I saw the t.v commercial for campus, gave them a call, and they got me right in for an appointment the same day, with low pocket expenses, as my insurance coverage was enough to cover their fees. They were able to perform the root canal, fit me for a crown,clean my teeth,take x-rays, and fill several cavities, completing all my dental work,too! I had not been to a dentist in almost 10 years because i have very sensitive teeth,and a real aversion to the drilling and picking, and usually needed twilight sleep, or some kind of anesthesia before a dentist can even look in my mouth.Campus Family Dental does NOT provide anesthesia, but what they provide is very competent, well trained, gental dentist, in a spotless new office,with friendly professional staff, that make every effort to make the patient feel as comfortable as possible, while quickly and efficiently completing their dental work. they numb your teeth and gums with enough lidocaine so you wont fell any pain, and if you need more, then the needle is always handy. This is a no nonsense, basic dental clinics, that provides excellent service to the community for a very few affordable, low cost, for those without insurance, and minimal to no out-of-pocket fees for those who have good dental insurance i highly recommend Campus Family Dental, and hope that you'll give them a call.

Both my husband and I went to this dentist after going to San Jacinto Smiles about 6 months prior. We have fair dental insurance and were really discouraged after going to the prior dentist. We were quoted several thousand dollars each for the dental work that we needed. I went to Campus Dental thinking I would have to pay at least a hundred dollars to have a tooth filled after the filling came out. They took xrays and said I also had 8 cavities that needed to be filled. When I asked them how much they told me nothing. I couldn't believe it and asked them if they were sure twice. I walked out of there with all of my ccavities filled, my teeth cleaned and xrays and I didn't have to pay a dime. I almost felt like running after I got out of the door because I had in the back of mind that they were going to stop me and tell me they made a mistake! The next day my husband went there and got his teeth done all for no money! These people are really there to serve the community when there are so many others that are only in business to line their pockets. Campus Dental, you are wonderful!

When I entered his office I was very impressed by the staff. They are extremely friendly and they made me feel more relaxed because of their cheerful yet professional disposition. The office is very clean, it looks very modern and the technology there is up to date on a whole different level. In relations to the doctor, Dr. Akkari is seriously the best! He is cool, funny, sensitive and has the ability to make shots and teeth extractions painless and easy! Two of my molars were really in there so I needed some surgery- this obviously made me anxious since I haven't had any form of surgery before in my life- but within minutes it was over and I felt nothing throughout the entire process. I can't believe I avoided this procedure for so long- it was a serious breeze and I know it's because of the doctor's gentle technique. Days after my procedure, Dr. Akkari called to make sure I was healing fine and doing well which was very sweet of him.

I had three teeth in the front that were capped due to a car accident years ago. They looked fake with metal stains on the gums. I wanted caps without the metal. After consulting 3 different dentists in Riverside, I decided to go with Dr. Akkari due to their great customer service, their "before & after" portfolio, and the friendliest doctor and staff, not to mention their super reasonable fees.My new all porcelain caps look so natural, no one can tell that they are capped. My gums got some laser treatment. I am super happy and pleased from A to Z with Riverside smiles dentistry, the doctor and the staff are super caring and accommodating. I already referred 3 family members and they all had positive things to say about them. If you looking for a dentist in Riverside, I definitely recommend Dr Akkari and his staff you will be taken care of without breaking the bank.

Ok, so I am super scared of dentists, specially when I needed 4 wisdom teeth pulled out. I Went to Riverside smiles dentistry (based on high recommendation from my mom and my sister); I was super nervous. I met with Dr Akkari, who was extremely nice. He somehow made me relax a little after the exam (exam and xrays were totally free!!). I honestly didn't feel any of the shots he gave me!!! Nothing!!! First time, no sting, no pain!!! He pulled the first tooth out so quickly that it made me relax and realize it is not as horrifying as I thought. The rest of procedure went alright. Dr Akkari, this was a lot less stressful than I ever imagined. My mom and my sister were absolutely right. I will see you soon to take out the stitches. Thanks again for making this easy and pain free!Kimberly A

This is the best experience I have ever had. I have been with several dentists in my 20 years of my career and I have never had a staff attend me as professional and courteous as New Age Dental. They make you feel like family. The office is modern with very nice paint , flooring and furniture. They have very nice patient rooms and have tv's to keep you entertained while you wait. The dentists and assistants are very honest and polite. I had another dentist from eastvale ca. and they don't compare with this office especially the honesty and pricing. The skill level of the dentists and hygienist was the best consultation and cleaning I have ever had especially his attention to detail when cleaning my teeth. I would recommend them to any one I meet and all my family and friends.!!!!!!

I don't know what the other two reviewers are talking about. They sound like Pre-Madonnas to me. I've been seeing Dr. Johnson and his other doctors for years and would not change a thing. He is always using the latest technology and will always make sure you are given the best care. As for bed side manner, he tells you if you have horrible teeth whether you like it or not. He gives it to you straight! If you have bad teeth, he's going to tell you, and not try to fluff it up like the other two reviewers seem to care a lot about. My guess is they have pretty bad teeth. On top of all his kind and hard work and giving me the exact smile I've always wanted, he has often given free cleanings and cavity fillings. Do yourself a favor and completely ignore the other two reviews.

I am surprised that Dr. Fundeanu has received negative comments. I have found her to be an excellent dentist. She is conscientious in her work and reasonably prompt in getting me into the chair at the appointment time. She also has a knack of finding the perfect spot to deaden my gums, if needed, in the care of my teeth.It is true that she doesn't spend time chit-chatting, but that is not from rudeness; it is because she focuses on getting her work done in a timely manner. I take no offense at that. Social chit-chat isn't important to me. I am a busy person and I want my visit to be started at the assigned time, done quickly and the work done well. I have found Dr. Fundeanu is able to do that, and I appreciate her consideration and care of my teeth.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
