Dr. Matthew M Aldridge, DMD
I went in with no pain and have remained in constant pain for over 6 weeks. I paid several thousand dollars for two crowns that weren't done properly and I'm going to have to pay thousands to replace them. Due to Dr. Aldridge's negligence, I've had an infected fractured tooth in my mouth for months, despite him taking countless x-rays of the area. Once he decided he didn't feel up to performing the extraction on that tooth, I was left looking for a new dentist. Due to Dr. Aldridge's unparalleled disregard for me as a patient, I'm left living with the infected tooth for 3 more weeks, and I get to take multiple courses of antibiotics. I still can't eat with any of the teeth Matt treated.

I am a Resident Manager for an Adult Family Home here in Vancouver WA. I recently accompanied one of our residents to this office for a comprehensive dental examination. I have had many encounters with various health care professionals on my residents’ behalf, but I have never experienced the level of professionalism that I witnessed at this office. My resident and I were treated with kindness, dignity and respect. We were given a thorough explanation of all of the steps that would be required for treatment, and they went out of their way to be certain that we understood everything. I highly recommend this office and commend them for the excellent service.

I WOULD NOT RECOMEND THIS DENTAL OFFICE TO EVEN MY WORST ENEMY, AND WILL NEVER RETURN! If I could give negative stars I would give a negative 2! Dr. Grayson is the worst dentist I have EVER been to. He turned a simple 45 minute appointment to have a tooth pulled into a 2.5 hour ordeal. Dr. Grayson:* Argued with me about having a root canal and crown for 10 minutes even though I repeatedly told him that's something I can't afford (I think he was in it for the added fee to make more money off a more expensive procedure).* He didn't numb the area well enough and wouldn't numb it more even though I was crying in the chair.* He kept pushing "himself" against me even though I kept moving away, I was almost in the middle of the chair.* He argued with me about the pain medication even though I explained that I am very allergic to it.* He prescribed an antibiotic for a large infection that NEEDED to be treated. When I called the next day to report extreme diarrhea from the medication, he said he didn't want to prescribe anything else and to just quit taking it all together, so not treating the infection at all. After fighting for my right to be treated for the infection he reluctantly prescribed a new antibiotic. All in all a bad dentist.

New Horizons Dental
Love New Horizons Dental - I have been with them for about 5 years. Over the years they have replaced old fillings, created a CEREC crown, and straightened my teeth with Invisalign. I have been happy with all the dental work they have provided and would recommend this office to anyone needing dental work.

Prairie Dental Care
Both of our girls love Dr. Kevin Smith and all of the staff. They both have had extractions and routine detail work done. For young adults to have teeth pulled and still love their dentist is amazing!!

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.
