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?

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!

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.

I could not be happier with my experience. It went as well as a root canal can go. No pain and pain free days following. Highly recommended!! I was very nervous to have the procedure done, but was shocked when it was completed and felt great!!

At first I thought they seemed a little Unprofessional but I had to change my mind. They took care of problems I have had for years with other dentists and I am no longer afraid to have my mouth worked on.

I enjoy the people, and the service was great. I especially like being interview on what the cost was before the service was started. Also the sit down at the end to pay the bill. Very plesant.
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.
