Dr. Kelly and Dr. Cobham are the best!!!They made me feel like they really cared about helping me and giving my family top shelf service. Super friendly and professional atmosphere. They are perfect for a family that is needing and looking for a family dentist.

Maplewood Family Practice
Today was my last wasted appointment at Maplewood Family Practice. Once again I scheduled an appointment and sat in the waiting room for 50 minutes. I asked the receptionist when I would be seen. She called my doctor's nurse who said it would be 5 more minutes. The nurse did call my name in that timeframe. When I walked back to the exam room with her I asked how much longer it would be; she said about 30 more minutes. I said I would not wait and got up and left. This happens time after time after time. I am done. If I could give a "zero" rating I would because that's how much they've done for me lately.

My hygienist, Michele, was fantastic. She discussed things about my oral health that I have never heard before.

The doctors and clinical staff were very courteous and gave me helpful advice on how to keep my teeth healthy. Whenever I come in for an appointment, I have the opportunity to speak with the doctor about any problems or questions that I might have and they do an excellent job of answering any of them. The whole staff is very friendly and accomodating.

I was at Enlighten Dental for a filling. Dr. Driscoll and his staff are simply the best! He makes coming to the dentist enjoyable. The filling was painless, and I was in and out in no time. It was wonderful!

Dr. Driscoll is the best! He is out of network on my insurance but the quality of care is well worth the few extra dollars. He take his time to explain and perform all dental treatments. I am happy I decided to leave the large practices in town for a more personalized care.

The staff at Enlighten Dental always makes me feel like I am important, and that means more than they will ever know! I appreciate the thoroughness, and thoughtfulness of everyone. My hygienist took special time to demonstrate the correct way to use my sonicare toothbrush, and that helped so much! Dr. Driscoll and his staff are simply the best! :).

I love this place! The warmth, decorations, and staff are irreplaceable! I would not go anywhere else for my care. I drive from King, and I wish I could come get my teeth cleaned every month! If only my insurance allowed it :)
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.
