Slone Charles E DDS
Dr. Charles Slone looked honest but his wife Judy not at all. If he promises something, don’t believe to him because his wife will interrupt and change everything.He offered an acrylic bridge with metal under it that it won’t break easily. While delivering his assistant told him that the lab didn’t put metal under it because Judy ordered without metal. We had to accept it as it is. After a while he said he doesn’t do Acrylics anymore. We warned him that he doesn’t touch any teeth, which need porcelain according to him. After some fillings, he cut a healthy looking toot and put a temporary crown and ordered porcelain for it. You usually don’t notice it because of the anesthesia. We called them in order to stop the porcelain but they billed us an extra lab fee because lab had already started to work on it. Then, he promised a flexible partial with metal under it. While delivering he noticed there was any metal, he told me his wife made a mistake while ordering it to lab. He promised he would replace it with a flexible metal one free of charge. He told me too to keep the flexible made one free of charge. After delivery we noticed the second partial was made all by metal. I didn’t want to argue more with those scam artists. I decided; when I eat at home I use the metal and when I go out the flexible one because when smiling it shows the metal frame. Next week Judy asked to return the flexible one. I told her I wouldn’t return it because her husband told to keep it as a spare free of charge. She billed an extra lab fee. By the way after Dr. Slone we visited other dentists and all they said he did a very bad job.If they will insist on lab fee, I will go to small claim court and collect back all the money paid for a very bad job done and for their dishonesty.Beware! They can do the same tricks to you as they did to us.

Although the office personnel and Dr. Fahami are very pleasant and gentle, I and my three family members have CONSTANTLY had "added charges" for dental work. Even a signed quote for a lengthy procedure was increased by 50 percent HALFWAY through the work - with no prior warning! They also habitually "up sell" patient procedures without informing them of less costly options. They have refused to do the checkup and cleaning that my insurance will cover (for my kids), saying they MUST have the more expensive cleaning! I always feel I have to do a bit of battling to keep costs under control... And many times that doesn't work anyway... STSYSTAY AWAY FROM CAPISTRANO DENTAL GROUP!

The office staff is very friendly and knowledgable. Amber and Phil are always so happy to see me, I really enjoy going to the dentist because of them.I have gone to Dr Kao in that office who I highly recommend as a periodontist.I work in the area so their hours and location are convenient for me.
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.
