I had the same experience as the last reviewer. They are unethical and are trying to rip you off. I too was told I had cavities which I did not have, after visiting another dentist, and that I needed these gum treatments also which I didn't need as well. I 'd stay far away from this place. They are thieves!
Dr. Vani is the best Dentist! I would recommend to her to all my family and friends. She is very compassionate and professional.
I have been going to this office for 22 years and in the past 4 years this place has become an unethical place for dental work. 1st of all, I'm 55 and a non-smoker and have always had excellent teeth. 3 years ago I was told I had 3 cavities that needed to be filled. Since I had no issues, I was skeptical so I didn't have anything done. My teeth are still fine to this day. Next was last July when Mary (my hygenist for 22 years) told me I had deep pocketing of the gums and had paradonal disease. I was shocked since I never had any issue in the past. She put me on an extensive treatment program with mouth rinse and 3 month deep cleanings. This cost me about $80/visit in addition to my current insurance. In January I had another cleaning so she told me my out of pocket was $109. I got upset and told her I needed a second opinion since she previously rated my so called gum disease at 4-5's which indicate gingivitious. I told her I went through the program late last year and said I was having no issues. She then told me I would need this extensive treatment every 3 mos for the rest of my life and insurance pays only a portion of this. I told her I was getting a second opinion, she got upset and I left. Anyway, this week I seen another dentist whom my friend recommended and I just got back and he did the normal cleaning and told my my gums are a 1 which means they are in perfect condition. My teeth were also perfect. He did the full x-rays and everything. This confirms my suspicion that Great Expressions is a bunch of dishonest people overselling services and wanting to punch holes in your teeth for no reason. I am going to pursue legal action on this since this is just not ethical medical treatment.
Best dentist in Sarasota area! I'm repeatedly astonished by Dr. Pelton & staff's supremely professional service, expertise & kindness. Dr. Pelton sets himself apart in numerous ways from other dentists--he's a patient perfectionist, which can be read both ways: 1) He strives for perfection for his patients' sake; 2) He is particularly patient, exacting & thorough in his expert work. He saved me from pain & further costly procedures by resolving a problem without root canal that could not be fixed by another Sarasota dentist. Dr. Pelton is affable & funny--I call him a "sit-down comic" because he has had his staff and me laughing--even without laughing gas! Also unique to his office: genuine caring; helpful efficiency; sincere politeness & cheerful demeanors; meticulous, soothing atmosphere akin to a spa; state-of-the-art technology, so patients are confident they are receiving safest & latest technological advantages. Nevertheless, there are many more expensive dentists in Sarasota. Staff is exceptional in expertise, warmth & gentle care. Like view of treetops outside windows, it's clear as day that Dr. Pelton's goal is to provide utmost in professional, outstanding & comfortable care. I have had 6 crowns, nightguard & cleanings. Ingrid's expert skill is apparent as her hands instill trust and therefore put patients at ease as she seamlessly handles the often awkward duties of a dental aide. Erika's knowledge is also notably superior to other dental assistants I've encountered, demonstrative of years of experience, while her friendly and gentle manner is very relaxing. Gail and Lorraine are very thorough and gentle hygienists, and Gail actually reversed a deteriorating area of my gums. The newest hygienist is outstanding as well, and even teaches dental hygiene courses despite her young age, so she is on the cutting edge of her field.Sharon sets the tone for an exceptional experience at the Pelton practice with her authentic cheerful demeanor and gracious, above-and-beyond helpfulness. The Front Desk Staff goes out of their way to work around my heavy work schedule with patience and understanding.
What I love about Shelby Dental Care, are the people that work there. Everyone is so nice and they really seem to care about their patients. They take the time to explain procedures and options and always make sure you are comfortable and pain free! They have my business for life!Cheryl GefrererPatient
Everyone from the secretary, to Dr. Ruffino, and even the Office Manager are extremely personable. I have 3 daughters that love going to the dentist because of this great office environment and staff!
I wish I found this dental office years ago. I have had the best experience here in this clinic. Dr. Antolak is the best! They got me in right away as a new patient on an emergency basis. They confirmed everything with my insurance ahead of time. They gave me a tour of the clinic when I first arrived, and introduced me to everyone. Everything is digital, so all of your forms can be filled out on your computer or phone before you arrive. They have great communication by text or email. Dr. Antolak even texted me later that evening to see how I was doing and to call him if I needed anything! How wonderful was that!!! They even check blood pressure and pulse ox! My next visit was for my comprehensive exam, and they spend a lot of time with me. I have never had such a thorough exam.When he numbed my mouth for an extraction, I didn't even feel him poke! He was gentle and took his time. I was very impressed, as I really dislike injections in the mouth. I seriously did not feel anything!I HIGHLY recommend them! Give them a call!
Hello My name is Shelly and I would like to say that Dr. Rani Dennison is a very nice person to work with she is understanding and caring about what dental work needs to be done I will refer many friends to have dental work done.
I had an AWFUL EXPERIENCE HERE. I DO NOT RECOMEND IT. I went in for a cleaning and they said i had 4 cavities. I know I hadn't been in a dentist chair in a while but four? Seriously? Then While he was fixing my cavity he was trying to watch the tigers game. I was like seirously? I was almost passed out by the gas I was under (which by the way wasn't even ready when I asked for it. Shoulda got up and left right then and there) I got 2 of the cavities fixed against my better judgement. And they pressured me hrdcore to get them done. Overall it was awful sure they where nice because they wanted my money. Now the one side of my mouth feels funny because he put the cavity in wrong, So now I gotta find another dentist. Do NOT go to these peope. Unprofessional, after your money and is just looking for work.
- 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.
