My wife has had two tooth extractions here and now she is in extreme pain. We have called their emergency line four times now and no one has responded. My suggestion is to stay away from these dentists as they only care about the buck and not the patient.

We're no longer looking for a dentist, we've found ours at Hilltop Dental Care. There's little waiting time, appointments are easy to schedule and we're SO IMPRESSED with the friendliness and professionalism of the dentists and staff. Never thought we'd say that going to the dentist was a pleasant experience, but our minds have certainly been changed. They're great!!

Been a patient here for as long as I remember, and can say 100% truly is a friendly environment. Freshly, I've got my braces taken off but everytime I would go they called me in right on time of my appointment. With a clear smile they would greet me and ask if I've have any complaints. I mean to be honest the first time I went I didn't really like the fact the bed things were clearly open to the other so patients can see each other (orthodotics selection I think it is) but when I laid on it and another patient was and another idk the atmosphere just is peaceful. They play music and like to get to know you a by so you won't feel so uncomfortable. Long story short, I would/am recommending this place.

Staff is very courteous, friendly, & professional. My children have been patients for over 8 years. I'm very pleased with the treatment by both the general dentistry & orthodontics. The kids actually like going to the dentist.

The people here are so nice and helpful . They always let you know what's going on and they let you know what they're going to do to your teeth ahead of time.

The staff at this dental office is wonderful. Dr. Gurman is a professional caring dentist. He even came in on a weekend to help my husband who had a dental problem that needed attention. My family has been coming to this dentist office for over 30 years. We've always had great care, and they are always on time, which hardly ever happens at a medical office! I highly recommend this dental office. You will be glad you found a great dentist and staff you can trust.

I saw Dr. Brink for the first time in December. Since then I have referred my other family members and a couple of friends. Dr. Brink made sure I understood everything and he was friendly and thorough. His staff was pleasant and I loved the hygienist who cleaned my teeth!

I was aghast at my visit. I went in and was told I needed a couple of fillings along with my cleaning. The lady who cleaned my teeth gave me shots to numb my cheeks and then proceeded to clean my numb mouth. I thought..."why is a dental assisant giving me shots?". Then, after the dentist drilled my cavities, the dental assisant was asked to filled my fillings. What!!!!! It took an hour, with a block in my mouth and I have so much phlegm in my throat from allergies as it is that I can't swallow normally. Anyway, the dental assisant did a whack job at filling my fillings. I had to go to another dentist and was told that the dentist drilled the wrong teeth. I had two cavities that I had to have filled somewhere else. There are two different dentists here. The guy who has a degree from Las Vegas must have won it at the casino. Run far away from here. The worst dentist experience in my life.

This dentist accepts medicaid, however they treat their medicaid patients as less than human. Expect long wait times, 4 to 6 weeks in between appts, unprofessional dentists, and their lack of empathy for difficult dental work. If they feel it is too difficult to fix your teeth; they would rather recommend extracting them. I have never heard anything like this from a dentist that was covered by regular insurance.
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.
