Excellent dental practice in Sarasota FL. Having worked in dentistry for many years I've known literally hundreds of practices. I choose Dr. Back because this is one of the best.
My name is Jim Quinn and although I normally use the Venice facility, I would like to comment on the care and service that I received at your S. Tuttle, Sarasota location.I would like to begin by apologizing because I do not remember the name of the Dr. who did the extractions for me on Thurs May 11. I also did not get the name of the young lady (Technician) who assited. I remember that she was from HungaryIn any event---they were great! No pain---completely professional-- and really thorough in post procedure explanation.Please extend my compliments to both and although I am in Venice , I will never hesitate to go to Sarasota when necessaryLast Item please apologize for me for forgetting their namesJames (jim) Quinn
Dr. Rutherford is great! He is very kind, gentle and caring. I am horrified of dentists but he makes me feel comfortable and keeps me pain free! Great work as well as a great friendly staff!
You can get better teeth at the funeral home.there not cheap but that's their claim.they have one dentist that drums up work and one Mr smiley that signs off.they pushed my dad in and out the door and never asked my opinion when I was there waiting to see.
I recently bought Dentures for my dad and frankly I could have got a nicer set at the funeral home they pushed him in and out the door as quick as they could do it they never asked me my opinion and I was sitting in the lobby the entire time they look like horse teeth they don't fit his mouth and they refuse to fix .then there's the dentist mr. Smiley policymaker a******
Overall great experience. People are normally scared of the dentist. I HIGHLY recommend doctor B and Alexis. Those two together are the dream team. Alexis is so knowledgeable, Mature and just a pleasure to be around. She will make you the most comfortable. Doc b does injections like you wouldn't believe. You cannot feel it!!!!! Please go to this dentist office. As I said, doc b and alexis are IT!
Always on time, excellent at explaining everything to put you at ease Not pushy, office is very modern, staff extremely nice. Great place to go.
I can't wait to go back to see Dr. Thomas Bowles and continue with this wonderful team of professionals!!
Thanks to Dr. Bowles and his staff, I have now changed my views on how I feel about going to the dentist.
On 8/15/16, I was referred to Dr. Kaufman to extract a cracked tooth. Upon examination, he stated that he didn't have enough time to remove the tooth and he would have to consult my regular dentist. I was charged a $125 "consultation fee". Twice, in the last 6 weeks, I have emailed him to ask my status. No response.
- 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.
