Mitch Cooper, DDS
A patient for over 30 years. Dr. Cooper has always excelled in his professional skills along with using state of the art equipment. Any dental work needed is always done correctly the first time. Besides his expertise, he and his knowledgeable staff are friendly and sincerely care about each and every patient. They are great with young patients to which my grandchildren can attest. I am so fortunate to have Dr. Cooper take care of my dental needs.

Jeffery W Armstrong DDS
The service was amazing and the post procedure care from the Dr was amazing. Dr. Armstrong even called me around 745 that night to make sure all was well and answer any questions I might have. I would highly recommend this facility.

Brian K Dufner DMD PA
I went to Dr. Dufner to have multiple fillings done on left side of my mouth. He told me I had a total of 13 cavities in my mouth. (Which I thought were a lot but trusted him as a Dr.) I payed $608 up front before the procedure. This was the first procedure and the next would be on March 21 to do the right side. (I have since canceled that appointment.) During the procedure the Dr. popped my jaw while filling a cavity. The next day I had terrible pain on my upper right teeth and right jaw. I called and they said this is normal if pain persists to call back in 2-3 days. I called back on and got an answering service . They told me they would relay the message. On I called at 8:30 AM and a lady told me she would let the dentist know and would call me later. I called again at 12:45 PM and was told that they were gone for the day (even though they are supposed to close at 1:00 PM). I called again and got the answering service again. He told me they were out of the office for a short vacation. I called back and they scheduled me in at 2:00. I went in and they took an x-ray and the Dr. came in and explained that the filling was too large and he would need to buzz it down. Without numbing me or using a topical numbing agent he starts drilling/sanding on the filling which is really painful. He messed up another tooth in the process when I jerked from the pain. He got up basically as soon as he said this and said if pain persists to come back in a week. I left the office still in pain.I went to another dentist to be seen about the pain. I still could not eat or use the left side of my mouth. He is saying I will most likely need a root canal as the filling is touching the nerve and that is the cause of the pain.

Friendly, efficient, and honest. I went to them originally because they are reasonable. But, I keep going because they are much more. I really like Dr. Heath and his whole staff!

Sterilization of instruments inadequate. Scary place, employees with warrants for their arrest. Dr. Looked me straight in the eye and lied to my face.

Matthew S. Fullmer, DDS - Family Dentistry
Horrible bedside manor. He was more interested in going on vacation than the fact that I couldn't wear my dentures. His answer when I told him I was in constant severe pain was to either tell me that I really wasn't or he would tell me to take another pain pill. To make it just a little more painful for me, he charged me $562 more than he should have!! I wouldn't recommend this theif to my worst enemy.

Matthew S. Fullmer, DDS - Family Dentistry
Dr Fullmer seems to be more a salesman than a doctor. His responses to questions were dismissive, and all but one of his assistants were actually kind of rude.I arrived for my appointment fifteen minutes early, but was seated after three others whose appointments were scheduled after my own.I was given several x-rays, which required multiple attempts, so more exposure to radiation than I would have otherwise liked.During the course of my "examination", Dr. Fullmer took his time, telling me everything I'd already made a point of discussing during the scheduling of my appointment.Then, instead of actually Cleaning my teeth, as I'd scheduled the appointment for him to do, I was informed that I would require another appointment, and then asked to pay for my cleaning appointment, where I'd received no cleaning.They used several sales techniques to attempt a 'pressure sale', which I found to be unprofessional. If you look like a well off, upper-middle class white person, expect exceptional "Up-sale" service, if you do not, don't waste your time.This office judges you based on appearance, and while my money spends just as well as anyone else's, my fashion sense apparently has much to be desired.I would NEVER go here again.

Kurt Glendening D.D.S., P.A.
Will not reimburse the $ my dad has on his books and no longer needs the work done. Dr. Glendening says my Dad has to wait till Dr Amin is back from India in April. This is an elderly man who lives on a fixed income. Apparently repaying the $545.80 is too much for this Dr to come up with. stay away from here!
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
