My wife found Dr. Paul by accident while shopping in the area one day. We had not been happy with many dentists in the Orlando area and have switched around many times in the past few years. Many dentists we went to seemed like they were in the business of referring folks to Root canal specialists and were more interested in the relationships with those specialists and less interested in saving teeth via old fashioned good work. Dr. Paul can do root canals but that is not what he prescribed for my wife. He said he could save the tooth without it and simply add a crown. Another time, a tooth needed extracted and a fixed bridge was needed. Dr. Paul did a perfect job, my wife's gums took a while to shrink properly and Dr. Paul did not want this appliance to go in until he was certain it fit like a glove and that is what he did. She could not be happier. My own bad experiences and fear of the dentists had been deterring me from proper care. I had many dentists perform work that I later found what not needed. I had dentists shock the nerves in my jaw and make me jump out of my seat. I had another Dentist down the street from Dr. Paul make me hold his tools and be his assistant while he worked on me. I have been overcharged and abused over time and I just gave up on my mouth. My wife told me Dr. Paul was the best she ever had and convinced me to go. Well, I did go and boy what a difference. His assistants are great.....especially Pam. I call her his right hand man and to be truthful she is also another reason I love the office. Even the gal that cleans teeth for him is the best I have ever had, no pain or discomfort and everyone there makes you feel comfortable and not embarrassed. This was a major plus for me and the reason I choose Paul as our forever family dentist. My kids will now go to him as well. If you are looking for someone who knows what they are doing and a VERY friendly staff....go to Dr. Paul Hettingers office

A few years back I unfortunately had to have a lower back molar tooth extracted. So began the discouraging process of finding a dentist that could do an implant for me. I say discouraging because after shopping around quite a bit, I was left with an uneasy feeling that such a tooth implant, because of it's location, could prove quite difficult to implement successfully.

I then had the good fortune to have Dr. Hettinger evaluate my situation. To be sure, he did not sugar coat (no pun intended since this is a dentist review) the problem by giving me false expectations. Rather he approached the problem in a very scientific way, an approach I can appreciate as a scientist myself. From the very start he was completely thorough and rigorous in his method of treatment. The result was a relatively painless tooth implant and the frosting on the cake (again no pun intended) was that Dr. Hettinger did the implant for an outstanding low price.

As a side note, I might add that Dr. Hettinger is quite the interesting guy beyond dentistry, with lots of fascinating stories and opinions about a variety of subjects ranging from science to the arts. While this may not be considered exactly relevant for a denistry review, the net effect of such conversations with Dr. Hettinger, beyond being interesting, was that my concerns about a tooth implant were greatly calmed.

Thank you so much for your kind review. No matter how many times I do it, I still get a kick out of seeing those implant crowns do their miracles. You were/are the perfect patient with regards to attitude and cooperation. The entire staff had a great time with you. Come see us anytime. We miss you. Dr. Hettinger

I have been a patient of Dr. Paul Hettinger for decades. My experience has been positive in many ways. His staff is very accommodating and friendly, my appointments are always on time and my dental needs are treated then and there. I feel comfortable and I'm not having to find other specialist to do the job. I recommend his office to all my family and friends.

Just wanted to express, how impressed I was with Dr. Hettinger and my overall experience, with my dental emergency. Recently, I had a bad accident that resulted in a large chip in my front tooth. Having worn braces in High School, my teeth were very straight. I was very proud of my teeth and smiling is my favorite and most prominent expression. My teeth are also very white and my friends often call me "Hollywood". Consulting with other Dentists, I was made aware of my extensive treatment, involving a a bridge, extraction & root canals. It was Dr. Hettinger, who put me at ease by taking the time, explaining the treatment, reassuring me with his knowledge & experience. I was still worried how the permanent bridge was going to look compared to the perfect smile I once had. My prayers were answered. Dr. Hettinger had fitted me with the perfect fit. Not only did they look perfect, they felt perfect to my tongue both inside & outside. Dr. Hettinger was also able to match perfectly my extremely white teeth. My smile was back and so was my confidence. Thank You Dr. Hettinger, for sharing your unique talents with me and giving me my smile back! I will highly recommend you! Jeff Fekay.

Both the staff and I enjoyed you and your family a great deal. Patients like you make dentistry a pure pleasure. Best wishes in all things. Doc

I will not recommend this dentist to anyone.The staff is very unprofessional, from the receptionist to the doctor. They do not care about the patients at all. The office is really dirty and all the equipments are updated. Is clear to me that they only care about the money and not about offering a good service. Worst dentist experience EVER!

Stay away from this place!

In 30 years you are the very first patient to state that the office is dirty. I don't know specifically what you are referring to. Some days are extremely busy and housekeeping has to go on the back burner while patients with appointments are treated. If we missed a dust bunny, I apologize. Rest assured, however, that all our dental equipment is more than clean. It is surgically sterile from the autoclave.

The initial consult for extensive dental work by this doctor was a very unusual experience.

I'm not sure which invoked the worst feelings...the receptionist or the doctor. Overall negative experience.

Without going into specific details, I would not ever suggest a visit here!

Dear Jack, The only pressure we are aware of is the pressure/suggestion to patients to do treatments which will last and which make sense in the context of an overall treatment plan. I see that we were unable to arrive at a treatment plan which was acceptable to you and to the dentist both. Sorry. Sometimes it works out that way. I hope and trust that you were able to find suitable treatment and that you are now enjoying full dental health. Best regards, Doc.
