I cannot speak to the prices Dr. Porter charges because my insurance has always covered my costs (guess I have good insurance). What pleases me the most about Dr. Porter and his practice is his philosophy on intervention. Contrary to what some other reviewers have said, Dr. Porter has always erred on the side on non-intervention, specifically concerning orthodontics. He has cared for my daughter since the age of 4. At the age of 8, when several of her permanent teeth were coming in crooked, he kept telling us, "Let's wait and see what the teeth do before we start talking about braces." Sure enough, her teeth straightened out! I have always felt like Dr. Porter has the dental health of my daughter first and foremost in his mind and actions.

I bought Good Times this week and I found an ad for a Dental Plan with Smile Dental Care. The prices sounded almost too good to be true, I called & the receptionist explained both plans. They even offered to explain it to me in person, before my first appointment. My first appointment was so smooth and easy. They were willing to work with my schedule which really helped. I have never had such a thoroughly explained exam, giving me all the options for what I need to have done. I've been to dentists before where I feel like I am not part of the decision, so this was great. Really nice office, hi-tech, Dr. was so knowledgable, great front desk people, The Dr. is super gentle. Overall, one of the best experience in a dental office I've ever had.

I found Dr. Myers to be very knowledgeable, thoughtful and eclectic, in the sensethat he is willing to apply ideas and techniques from the entire field of psychiatryand psychology. He listens well and creates a safe, comfortable place for, ashe once put it, "..stirring up the sediment..", allowing me to get at and resolvesome very charged issues, something I found quite difficult with some othertherapists. I now have a much better handle on my depression, anxiety andOCD, for example. He has also helped my wife and me arrive at better waysof relating and 'giving space' to one another. He is caring, takes his time, andhas a nice sense of perspective on things that are often painful and bewildering.His gentle humor helps too. ***Gene***

Dr. Porter is incredibly kind and thorough. He explains everything to my son and is empathetic. No t.v.s are needed here. The office is decorated in a surf decor and the children are given the standard prizes after their checkup. Are you the kind who flosses and brushes really well? Well, then congratulations! You just may be one of the lucky ones who get to enter their names in a raffle and walk off with a new cruiser! If you're not such a great brusher, no worries. You're still treated kindly. My son is not a flosser and he still is congratulated for just using a toothbrush and a post brush "wash". He does not need braces, so I can not comment on that type of service.

My children both just had their 3rd visit with Dr. Porter, and he is a great dentist. You just can't say anything negative about him and his office staff. Has anyone been to a dentist lately? They are not cheap, but you are paying for an extremely important service. As someone with major teeth issues, I will pay the extra money to get things done right the first time and have it maintained rather than pay a cut rate dentist to do work I am going to have to have redone in 3 years. The raffle thing is a great idea...I highly recommend him to any family!

Over the past year I have gone through some extremely difficult health issues that have impacted my teeth.(Several broken, some needing to be pulled and replaced)I was referred by my sister to Dr Kuechle. While my current Dentist was of very little help, Dr Kuechle went out of his way to ease my current pain and to put together a plan to get my teeth back to a place of good healthI am very impressed with the doctor and his entire staffI will be his patient for as long as he remains in practiceI can't recommend him highly enough!!

My daughter looks forward to going to the dentist! She talks about the office and about her "friends" who clean her teeth. Wonderful dentist, Dr. Porter and she loves getting treats when her visit is over. I agree with her on all of the above and appreciate the text reminders. Everything is easy, professional, and efficient to deal with. My daughter is getting off to a great start with her teeth & dental health. Thanks!

Did true-that go to the same place I did? Not sure what happened to them to make them say that stuff. I got introduced to Smile Dental care through a Groupon last year. I just went in for a second time and they seemed to be very caring and knowledgeable. I'm an older individual whose had a lot of dentist visits over my lifetime … I thought this was one of the better experiences I've ever had.

I so appreciate Dr. Porter's gentleness, kindness and professionalism. My children all (3) look forward to their visits. Dr. Porter takes time to explain exactly what is happening in the mouths of my children, and the hygienist matches the professionalism of Dr. Porter. The environment & staff make coming to the dentist an awesome, fun experience. The prices are great too! :)

Appreciations to the front desk's efficiency and welcoming smiles and the dental hygienist Patricia's kindness, care, gentleness and expertise
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
