To respond to Fred Beers review. He was a patient in our office just this last week. Unfortunately he had decided that he was going to not enjoy his visit from the moment he walked into the office. As you can see in his review, he mentions the lack of 'rinsing facilities'. We offer two bathrooms to all of our patients, however we do not offer cuspidors on our chairs as this was deemed unsanitary due to the danger for increased amounts of harmful aerosols (we use high volume and low volume suctions instead). Mr. Beers was in the office for a full exam, radiographs, and cleaning and his appointment was slated for 1 hour as is customary. He was actually in the treatment room for longer than 1 hour. I'm glad that he did not 'feel' his cleaning, as it is not required to hurt someone to clean their teeth most of the time, and it speaks to his level of oral hygiene that we were able to complete the cleaning thoroughly without harming him. I am sad that he was dissatisfied, but all of our attempts to make him happier failed. I hope he finds a dentist in town that is to his standards. As for up to date...we offer the latest in tech including digital radiographs, digital impressions, and metal free restorations. This review, although lengthy, was my only way that yellow pages has allowed me to respond to this slanderous review from an unhappy individual. We would love for you to try us for your next dental appointment. I assure you that we will do our best to make your experience wonderful any way that we can.

First time visit.Had Xrays,Exam and teeth cleaning.It only took about 5 minutes for the actual cleaning.Normaal every time I have ever had my teeth cleaned it took 20 minutes or more.Doctor Ashley did the cleaning if thats what you want to call it.I don' feel she covered every in my month.could hardly feel anything when she was cleaning them.After the cleaning there was no rinse to spit out anything. She then handed me over to a Dental assistant to flossed and applied the whitner procedure.She handed me the suction tube and told me when to use it.After she was done with her procedure she squirted water into my mouth and told me to suction the the out.Still no rinse cups available.Several times I had to swallow during all the procedures,as there was no cups or rinse facilities available next to where I was laying.In all my years fof going to different Dentists I have never been to one out of date and would not recommend Heinecke Family Dentistry to anyone. I just hope all of Spring Hill or Brooksville Fl are not the same,as I look for a Dentist who is more up to date in their procedures.

This office was recently taken over by the best staff and Dr. in Spring Hill in April of 2012. The person who thinks its a scam should do some research and not just assume just because he didn't get his bloody cleaning something must be wrong and instantly its a scam. There is plenty of research to support the type of cleaning you were diagnosed with. So don't be ignorant and don't blame anyone but yourself. The type of cleaning you needs starts at home with your own personal it must not be that great!!!!!!! And just because you have insurance doesn't mean you going to get just what is covered. I have gone there several times and thank god they are a new Dr and staff.

I have nothing but praise for this dentist. I am so glad I found him as he is very gentle with the needle and very careful and thoughtful in his work. I have had extensive work done by him so far and am still in the process of having 2 more crowns. The only problem at times is that he might be over-booked but in any case, he is totally worth the wait! I have a fear of dentists because of bad experiences but I feel very safe and confident in his care. On top of it all, Dr. Santa Cruz served our country in the Navy and is currently serving in the Reserves!

Went in for a second opinion and loved the frankness, honesty and all the options I was given! Dr. Lee "LISTENED TO ME" - and I will be a patient forever!!! The entire staff is professional in a casual, friendly way and I enjoyed everyone.I like that EVERYTHING is done there, extractions, cleaning, etc.I expected, after the extractions to be miserable - on the contrary - it wasn't bad at all. Liked it there sooooo much - I have both my sons going there too!I highly recommend Aspen Dental.

I saw Dr. Skipper at Value Dental in Crystal River this past Tuesday due to a chipped front tooth. He was so informative about what was needed and why. His personality only enhanced the entire experience. Dr. Skipper is comical, friendly, and explanation. I would suggest anyone needing work done see him. We all want a dentist that makes us feel at ease. He did that and more. His assistant was equally as friendly. Value Dental and Dr. Skipper makes for a great combination!

Dr Lash is a great dentist and his staff is always so friendly. Also, the front desk always greats you with a smile. Hygienists are so friendly and pain free!! I've had painless fillings completed here and would highly recommend this office for your dental needs! :-) He doesn't treatment plan a lot of unnecessary things or "push" people into having work done. He is actually concerned for peoples dental care and overall oral health.

Great service and even better prices. Excellent referrals if you need extreme work done like surgery.Best place in Spring Hill as far as I'm concerned. Both my wife and I have gone here for years. Three other places have changed hands in the last 4 years. Lansmann and Gulf Coast have been here along time. So have his employees.We consider this group the best in Hernando County.

This dentist and his staff are AMAZING!!! They all have big hearts and very kind, unfortunately I had to get top dentures and it has been a trauma for me to accept but Dr. and his staff were absolutely wonderful and by my side with support and smiles. I recommend this dentist, they all feel like family. My dentures are beautiful.

Started out for a second opinion and never looked back. Dr. Andrew Lee is very professional, kind, funny and caring. The office staff treat you like family. The prices are acceptable even for someone without insurance (personally speaking). Definitely recommend this Aspen Dental to anyone & everyone.
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
