I am replying to the 1st comment. I too had an unenjoyable experience with one of his dental assistants. Unfortunately the way his office is laid out there isnt very much privacy because the operatories are open. I managed an dental office for years and this is definitely a violation of the HIPPA law amongst just plain out ethics. I am just curious if you and I had the issues with the same assistant... I myself just started in his office in June, had a tooth pulled, which definitely needed it but I had to go back 2 days later because my jaw was swelling with infection, which the dentist immediately said and saw once he came in but beforehand I had a loud mouth assistant yell and tell him I just had a dry socket, which is the furthest thing from what was going on with me as he told her himself. He did tell her at that point she needed to have more discrestion in discussing patiensts care. Im sorry you had such a bad experience. But if you would like to find a dentist you like better, check with your insurance company to osee who is in network for you... My first visit with the DR himself, I thought he was gentle and kind. Im sorry you had such a poor experience. Please dont let this experience keep you from seeking help having your teeth taken care of.... You can contact me at JENPEACE31@yahoo.com if you would like to discuss any further and give you some tips on finding a dentist that fits to your liking better. By chance, did you mention it to DR Benedict @ how she had made you feel by her not showing more discretion??? i wish you the best luck and if I dont ever speek to you, please take care of those teeth. Our teeth are alot more important to our health than most may realize, if it gets serious it can honestly cause you heart problems-even a heart attack, depending on each individuals situation.... PLEASE dont let this unethical assistant stop you from finding the care you need for your teeth... SORRY to hear about this... I just wish I knew if it was the same one I had issues with.

I can't say enough good things about this dental practice. Everyone is warm and friendly as soon as you walk through the door. As someone who fears the dentist, they do an amazing job making me feel comfortable. The complimentary nitrous oxide is awesome as they truly do "Cater to Cowards" like me. This past visit, I also took advantage of the $98 custom zoom whitening. It only took a few minutes to make the impressions and the actual act of making the impressions was very easy (I had flashbacks to terrible experiences making my retainer impressions in high school!). They do everything with the patient in mind and make everything as easy as they can. I recommend them to everyone I know!

I don't care for the office but I only go there because I have crappy insurance and they have available Saturdays.The doctor is nice, she's quiet, which is okay because I'm quiet too, and she does work fast. My first visit, the hygienists was great and I liked her but I don't think she's there anymore. The staff all seems rude there, like they don't really care for you as a patient. All they want is to get the work done fast and get you out of there. When you call they ask you what you need done, they fix the problem, then boot you out without even bothering to make a future appointment to come back. But what can you expect with state insurance no one accepts?

I've already refered 2 friends to this practice and have been going myself for about 3 years. I was having issues with tooth pain and my dentist at the time kept grinding my teeth down stating "my bite was off". Dr. Connelly checked my teeth out and made a very simple recommendation, a nighttime mouth guard which occluded my teeth. I got the guard and have had no problems since AND no grinding my teeth down with a drill! I just had my teeth cleaned today and my hygienist was very professional and gentle.No hard sell at this dentist! He provides honest, quality care!

Dr. T. Ngo is a GREAT dentist. Every time I have been there for abstractions, even two broken teeth, she is FAST. Most dentist it seems it takes a long time to get a tooth out but Dr. Ngo is so experienced and good at what she does, you are in and out of that chair FAST. She gets the job done FAST and ACCURATE. NO pain, it's the best dental experience I have ever had honestly and I have been to about 7 different dentist in my 46 years of life. I HIGHLY recommend her. Getting an appointment is fast and easy too!

My experience as a new patient in this office was awesome, the Dr. and his staff are so friendly, they make you feel so comfortable. With just starting a new job and new insurance, his staff was very helpful in helping me thru that also, I feel they went out of their way to help me. I have sent several friends to them for their dental needs as well and they have had similar experiences as well. By far the best dentist I have ever been toeveryone should check them out.

I was promptly greeted when I came into their office by the receptionist. The staff is professional and the dentist is highly knowledgeable. The dentist was able to answer questions I had about my crown and he made sure to accommodate my fear of going to the dentist. Overall, this experience was very smooth and I left their office satisfied.

My experience at this office was wonderful. The hygienist that cleaned my teeth made me fill completely at ease. The cleaning was painless and my teeth felt wonderful after the cleaning. So glad that I found this office. I will be back for additional dental work. Thank you for making this a great experience.

I went first time for a second opinion about a periodontal scaling root cleaning ($740) in another Dental. They did my annual cleaning and I didn't fell anything, great job and I don't have to pay $740 as the other dentist want that I pay. Thanks for be honest and great job.
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
