We're pleased with the care we get at Kool Smiles. My kids are older and don't have the issues younger kids have with dentists. With that being said, the kids appreciate the professional approach. They get seen promptly, painlessly, and get what they need done in an efficient manner. It helps the dentist is technical and acts in a professional manner. I find this approach inspires confidence in the patient and parent. The support staff is nice and professional. As a parent and customer I appreciate this. Some would say the office is like a commercial business lacking that folksy I- know-everything-about-the-patient-outside- of-dentistry philosophy. Well, it is. It's no mom and pop private practice. This is not a bad thing. I had that kind of dentist before and found their treatment lacking. Not the case with Kool Smiles at all. They do an awesome job and I like the professionalism. The staff is not like your BFF, but they are super nice and customer centered. That is fine with us, the end product, professionalism is all that matters; moms and dads can do the dentist emotional support thing with skittish patients. I am very pleased with Kool Smiles. The office is proficient, priced competitively, customer centered, and does a great job.

Dr Jay R Lopez,DDS, PC
I can't believe there aren't any reviews for Dr. Lopez. He and his staff are wonderful! I was terrified to go to the dentist after being told in Safford (Bushmans Dental) that I needed to have all of my teeth pulled. So I stayed away from the dentist for 3 years, horrified at false teeth. Finally I couldn't take the pain any more. I tried 2 different offices in Tucson, and both were unfriendly or dirty. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Lopez because it was close. I thought I should be close to home after having my teeth pulled. ick. BUT! Dr. Lopez and his staff were so understanding and kind. I don't have to have any of them pulled. He has to do a few root canals, which I thought would be terrible pain, but it didn't hurt AT ALL. I have made more appointments for as soon as possible to have work done on the rest of my teeth. I can't wait to smile again. I don't know about other dentists out here, but I do know I will recommend Dr. Lopez and his awesome staff to all my coworkers and family. Many thanks to them!

Dr Lopez and his staff are amazing at keeping abreast of current dentistry and caring about their patients. After numerous visits to other dentists and failing to feel a welcome or level of confidence I struck gold! From the moment I steeped into the office of Dr Lopez I felt a sense of relief, renewed believe I would finally achieve the goal of implants. I'm more than on my way to success. Dr Lopez takes personal care in each and every patient and his staff welcomes you with a smile and makes you feel special and cared for. I would recommend Dr Jay Lopez to anyone especially those timid in regards to dental offices. I drive from Sierra Vista to Tucson for every visit and I'm confident I'm doing what's right for me with Dr Lopez at the helm and I have no regrets and NO looking back! Thanx Dr Lopez and your entire staff for taking great care of me and designing a successful implant approach we are striving for!!!

I was very disappointed. My oldest was having some dental work done and they wouldn't allow me back in the room with her with my other children. This was very frustrating for me. As a single mother, it is very hard to get someone to watch my other children. This is supposed to be a place for kids but they didn't seem very kid friendly. I ended up having to reschedule the appointment, which leads to my next concern. I told the lady up front that I would need to call and reschedule because I was unsure when I would be able to get someone to watch my other children. She said I HAD to make another appointment right now. When I tried to explain my situation, she didn't seem to care. I do not feel like this place caters to families or their situations, which is odd for a place that is supposed to be for children.

This place is absolutely amazing! Super kid friendly. If I could give GD4K 10 stars I would! The assistants are wonderful with children of all ages. We met Dr. Chen and Dr. Kemp who stepped into our exam room to introduce himself and to say hi. Dr. Chen and Stella worked fast and accordingly during my girls cleaning and exam (as 2yr olds aren't as cooperative).My daughters loved the playground in the waiting room and the little toy with balloon Dr. Chen and the wonderful assistant Stella gave them.I'm sure when we go back for their 6 month check-up they will be excited to go, they talked about their visit for the rest of the day.A wonderful experience overall. Thank you GD4K. (Country Club location)

I had a scheduled appointment for my three boys today at this location. The office staff was very friendly & very helpful. My insurance coverage just recently changed & staff was able to explain what I would be responsible for on my next two future visits. It's nice being able to go to an office where you can see that the staff really cares for the needs of their patients. I have been going to this location for a few years now but I must say today's visit truly made an impression on me because of the new friendly faces & spectacular customer service. Look forward to taking my kids there in the future! Thank you all at Kool Smiles East for taking care of my family today!

Company really works with scheduling appts that are very convinent, The staff is all seemily nice. My only rather large complaint is my oldest son was not completely numb when they started working on him, this is twice now same dentist.. This last appt, I even had to take him to his doctor because they grinded on him so hard he was complaining his jaw hurt so bad it was broken.( it wasnt or my review would look way diffrent after 4 days he was good). My only other complaint but nothing on the company but it feels like you step into a third world country there so if you are ok with the constant hard stares while waiting for your children you will be ok..

Hohenstein, Robert P, DDS
I actually look forward to seeing my dentist! The staff at Hoenstein and Schartz is always professional and courteous. I am greeted with a smile every time. If I lived in Phoenix, I would totally make the trip to Tucson. I remember one time I didn't understand what was going on with one of my teeth, and Dr. Schwartz took the time to draw me a picture to explain it. That meant a lot to me. Recently Dr Schwartz noticed that I had some infection with a root canal, and did a retreat free of charge. Hohenstein and Schwartz has an invested interest in the treatment and care of their patients that in my opinion reaches far beyond just dentistry.

Half Dental Tucson
I was in town for business and was in some serious pain. The hotel staff recommended Half Dental. They were able to get me in the same day and the staff was friendly once I arrived.The dentist was able to diagnosis the problem quickly and told me my options. I didn't feel any pressure to make a choice. The dentist explained each step during the procedure which seemed to put me at ease. The aftercare was explained and I was on my way. I still made a late afternoon appointment when a similar procedure in the past caused me to miss two days of work. The cost was extremely fair and I even received a call the next day to see how I was doing.
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.
