The staff is not so bad, but they take their clue from the doctors: rude, unhelpful (asking a question is like disparaging them), they act like they are doing you a favor. Hey, if I'm paying thousands of dollars, you work for me, you could at least try to be pleasant. But then again, you got the sharp instrument in my mouth. They all need to retire; especially Dr. Spector - he is an old curmudgeon.

Cromer & Cairns Dental
I have had all my dental work done in the past 22 years by Dr.John Cairns or Dr.Julie Cromer, and their very pleasant and detailed dental assistants on staff, including their most recent addition, Jennifer, who has significantly raised the bar for dental assistants. From the time I enter their clean and fashionably-decorated office to check in, through the process of having the necessary work on my teeth, and finally to the payment and rescheduling station, I am totally satisfied and with their knowledge and efficiency. I would recommend these outstanding, professional dentists and assistants at Cromer and Cairns to everyone......Gerry Berkheimer-Vero Beach

Spallone, Family Dentistry & Associates
Having met Dr. Tiffany Spallone - and later Dr. Jan Garcia - after breaking a tooth in the top center of my mouth, I said "enough is enough." It's time to do something about my teeth. 50 years old and my teeth were either breaking or starting to hurt due to cavities. Anyone ever remember being yelled at as a kid by their parents to "brush your teeth?" I do and for the most part, did so. Nevertheless, visiting the dentist as an adult was only a priority when something went wrong or hurt. I was never into the "six-month" rule for visits and cleaning. I paid more attention to the "five-second" rule when dropping food on the floor than I did to scheduling regular dental visits.Initially, I found Spallone Family Dentistry through an online search and very positive reviews. I had a broken tooth and it was a Saturday. I called and was told to come in later that morning. A few minutes later, they called back and said "you can come in now" as someone had cancelled an appointment. Having recently moved to Vero Beach from Fort Lauderdale, I was still "making contacts" and one of them wasn't a dentist.All hooked up at the dentist and Jeanette walks into my treatment room saying "Hi, Bill - we're Facebook friends." I'm saying to myself "who is this pretty woman and how come I haven't noticed her before?" Long story short, Jeanette and I spoke for a few minutes and she noticed that I had "checked into Spallone Family Dentistry" on Facebook and wanted to introduce herself. Turns out that Jeanette had recently started working at this office and had a lot of nice things to say about the practice.After being treated that Saturday morning and doing extensive research, I decided to visit Spallone again for a check up and a potential treatment plan. I met Dr. Jan Garcia who became the dentist in charge of my treatment and decided to move forward with some very extensive dental work. As it turned out, my Cigna dental plan provided some very good discounts and incentives and I decided to move forward with treatment.Talking about personal health or dental issues is hard for most. In my case, I needed very extensive dental work and "I needed it now" as I had a broken front tooth just right of center. Not one known to smile for the camera, you could see the missing tooth when I spoke and that wasn't acceptable to me. I wasn't someone who had bad hygiene practices - I just wasn't good at visiting the dentist. Dr. Jan Garcia and Dr. Tiffany Spallone devised a very specific dental treatment plan and we had detailed discussions regarding scheduling and fees. I decided to go "atomic" and replace everything in my mouth. My biggest concern was I didn't want to grow old before my time. I wasn't looking for dentures and a cup by the bed for my teeth at night. My dental treatment plan must include permanent implants or fixtures that could never be removed. A dozen or so dental visits over the course of several months and I have a brand new smile. That doesn't mean I smile for the camera now, but I did for some of these photos. My Cigna dental plan helped in significantly reducing the cost of a complete new mouth and my night job at Publix sweeping floors pays for the zero percent credit offer from Care Credit. All kidding aside - the dental plan allowed me to "pay as I go" without any real impact on my wallet. While replacing an entire mouth could potentially be expensive, my research indicated I was getting a decent deal at Spallone. They were less expensive than another dentist I visited in the Fort Lauderdale area and I needed the work done. Moreover, I was comfortable with the practice and the support staff behind them. A great family type atmosphere and they explain the process each step of the way. With hardly a wait, it's never more than a few minutes in the waiting room. Friendly and professional staff at Spallone Family Dentistry in Vero Beach, Florida. Bill LewisVero Beach, Florida

Aspen Dental
I am so disgusted with Aspen Dental Vero Beach. First, the lady at the front desk was not very sympathetic. As a Veteran and a Contractor still serving in Afghanistan, I was not taken care of whatsoever. My last visit they kept billing the wrong company. Then after my wife called ( a month and a half prior to my appointment) to get it set up and get them on the right track. They continued to bill the wrong company, and refused to see me until I paid a bill that I rightfully did not owe them. Refusing to see me and fix a cavity before I deployed again. Then when they realized their mistake after a very long conversation with my wife. Still refused to see me because it was "pass my appointment time and I would have to reschedule". Which would of been another month out and I was leaving in 3 days, which is why I set the appointment a month prior. Not a single apology, no symphony. My 5 year relationship with Aspen Dental meant nothing to them. I WILL NEVER return from how they treated me. I never got that cavity fixed and have to wait another 8 months till I get back home to have someone else fix it. Thank you again for really take care of a paying Veteran, I will make sure to let everyone know about my experience at Aspen Dental Vero Beach!

Coast Dental
This facility is not for dental care. A money operation requesting funds without merit. The office manager is there for monetary services nothing to do with professionalism or dental care. When calling to resolve a minor issue at the fault of the office, she revealed her incompetence and deception by claiming the email has been down all day and she spent too much time on the conversation. These are confidence specialist. Do not remotely consider going to this office.

I had an appointment on Wednesday 8/18/2016 at 8:30, I only waited for about 3or 5 minutes and I was called to the back.The atmosphere there is so peaceful and satisfying. It was so peaceful, as I was waiting in the room for Marlene, I had closed my eyes. Could have gone to sleep.Everyone in the office that morning was so very nice. You don't get what I experienced everywhere. Thanks everyone!

We loved Palm Tree Dental when we first started going but as time has passed their customer service is awful. Very rude and disrespectful people, then we finally had had enough they wouldn't even give us our records. Would never recommend.
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.
