Springfield Dental Care Hein Nick DDS, Fankhauser,Jerry DDS
Dr. Hein and his staff are excellent with their patients. He takes a fresh, new style approach with his patients that is relaxing and builds confidence for the patient in a situation that normally creates a ton of anxiety. As a patient, you will receive the utmost specialized care from his staff at Springfield Dental Care. From reception, to the dental assistants, to the hygienists, and the Dr. himself...they are all truly great people. I had been a long time client of my previous dentist (since childhood) and was nervous at first to make the change to someone new....this was one of the best decisions I have made with my dental care, as I have been treated like family with the doc and staff alike. My dental hygiene is also at it's all-time best! BONUS for me! I would recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist to give Dr. Hein and the staff at Springfield Dental Care a try and become their newest patient! They work as a truly cohesive team and excel at their trade.

Robert E. Fuchs, DDS-General Dentistry-David M. Fuchs
Dr. David Fuchs is the finest dentist I have ever had. I have had bad experiences with dentists in the past and spent many years not going to a dentist because of those bad experiences; however, David and his staff changed my perspective on dentistry. He is a thorough, well trained, and personable doctor. His staff have always taken great care of me and acted in the most professional manner. He answers all of my questions thoroughly and doesn't seemed annoyed by me questioning him about procedures and or why he is performing them. David seems to care about what is best for his patients and doesn't try to perform procedures that are not necessary which is great for the budget conscience consumer. Dr. Fuchs is the only dentist I would recommend anyone going to. I have been very happy with his work.

Springfield Dental Care Hein Nick DDS, Fankhauser,Jerry DDS
I have been going to Dr Fankhauser for over 10 yrs. He did all my front porcelain crowns to replace teeth badly stained by tetracycline. I went from a smile I tried to hide to one I am very proud of showing off. I have people compliment my smile all the time and they never would guess they are crowns as they look so real. Dr Fankhauser and his staff are always prompt and pleasant. He and his staff have done a lot of work on my teeth over the years and I have never had a problem.In fact Dr Fankhauser has personally called to check to see how I am doing the evenings after procedures. I drive about an hour and a half to this office and will continue to do so.I will continue to recommend him and his staff to any friends seeking out a wonderful dentist.

All About Smiles Lc
Wow. What can I say? I love this place. I have been taking my children here for years and Dr. Dye has always been great. He is very caring and genuinely likes people. I have never seen him be rude, nor his staff, (even to the know-it-all dental hygienists students getting work done as is more than obvious in the other posts). He recently done work for me going above and beyond to make sure it was ABSOLUTELY PAINLESS quick and efficient. His staff a very polite and professional, as well as very skilled in their respective jobs. My children LOVE him. I cannot say enough good things about him. Questions about his work? Call me 417-315-3109. He fixed my front teeth where they were chipped and I can smile again. He is "All about the smiles".

I am a new woman with confidence and I carry myself completely differently now that my grill isn't messed up. Thank you everyone who works there.,. I appreciate you.

I went to this office for cleaning and exam. Hygienist was great as well as Dr. Kaelin. I was treated very well from the moment I stepped through the door. Very friendly and caring staff . I was offered financing through care credit to help with my dental care. I will definitely be a life time patient and look forward to my next visit. Thanks Dr. Kaelin and staff you're great!!

Distinctive Dental Solutions
Scheduling was a breeze, but do not go to this dentist if you want to protect your identity. I verified TWICE with my insurance that they do not require a SSN to file a claim. Yet Distinctive Dental Solutions insisted that they must have my SSN to process the claim. They offered to provide service only if I paid in full and submitted the claim myself. A waste of my time.

Although the work I had done was a little unpleasant, as expected, I thought they did an excellent job. They took care of me. I recommend them to my friends, family, and anyone else that needs similar help. They use very modern techniques and are a very nice group of well trained technicians and dentist(s).Thank you Springfield Dental Clinic~ S M Rickman "Wiredrick"

Buzbee Dental Clinic
The best group of professionals I have ever dealt with. Provided music and sun glasses before proceeding with my dental needs. Never ever had that before, totally relaxed me. DDS Tyler Buzbee even checked on me by texting me. That really surprised me. I highly recommend these professionals.

I love seeing the doctors at my dentist, Smile Dental. Both the older one and the younger one are very nice when I go in. They listen to me when I have concerns and even when I had to have a filling, the shots didn't hurt much at all! The girl who cleans my teeth does a great job too.
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.
