ScammersThis is the place to go if you want to get ripped off. Get a second opinion if they want you to pay out of pocket for anything. They use scare tactics and tell you that you have conditions and problems you don't have.

Jungermann Dental Care
I went to Jungermann Dental for 2 years. My previous dentist retired and I went by a recommendation of someone I knew. I will preface by saying I love going to the dentist and enjoy my twice a year cleaning. Like any human being, I am not perfect and have had cavities which I have had filled. My first visit found me with two new cavities and a tooth I was told needed a crown. Like any concerned person, I wanted to make sure I took care of it before it became worse. I trusted the doctor and began thinking of my course of action. Within seconds, I had an employee in my booth talking to me about my "payment options." Nevertheless, I took care of setting up the appointment and working to figure out how to pay for the work.Fast-forward two years. I have had two crowns, two root canals, countless fillings and countless fillings replaced (was told they were cracking). I feel foolish not catching on sooner, but I felt that perhaps my teeth were falling apart and I wanted to do what was necessary to preserve them.My last visit there, I went for a tooth cleaning (like normal). I have NEVER been afraid of the dentist, but I was beginning to dread going for fear of what they may find wrong (and how I would afford it). I was told I had FIVE cavities and AT LEAST THREE more teeth that needed crowns. My red flag went off. ALL of the sudden, I had all of these problems (and NO pain on my end). I left and never returned.I have gotten other opinions and I have NOTHING wrong with my teeth. I feel ashamed that I fell for their money-making scam and am outraged that they put me through (probably) unnecessary work. Who knows at this point? I probably didn't need my fillings replaced. I am FURIOUS that they would make up such nonsense to make money at the expense of my health and my savings. They should be ashamed. I am sure not everyone shares my opinion, but as I dig more and more, I find I am not alone in my feelings or my experience. I wanted to share.

Brought my 15 year old daughter for the $59 cleaning and X-ray special. Never Again!!! I never got to meet the dentist (Dr Grant) but was told she had 7 cavities, and a possible root canal. Took her for a 2nd opinion to another dentist. She has 3 cavities, no root canal even close... And still needed a professional cleaning! Lifetime is part of Heartland Dentist chains... Please avoid!!!

I do not recommend this office. I am a college student who visited this dentist while home for Thanksgiving break. They said I needed a crown and supposedly checked with my insurance company and said I would owe X amount. I called my dad right from their office and he paid over the phone. In January I got another bill for almost the same amount. I called my insurance company and they said that Dr. George's office didn't call them until December 10 after the claim was denied. Turns out they never did a preauthorization with my insurance company. They completely misled me and my dad or maybe even out and out lied.

My St. Peters Dentist
This dentist is very unpleasant, their employees do not shower and smell like a rotten old skunk. I was also treated like a black man in the 1950s! they do not take care in their work as after going for my hygiene appointment i still had plaque all over my teeth, they didn't do anything!

The worst dental experience of my life. Two hours in the chair for xray and cleaning. Almost walked out during x-rays as it took 3 people to accomplish.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
