THIS PLACE IS HORRIBLE. First off it is their policy to make appointments for children during school hours. It seems that children who are covered by Access Dental are being discouraged to get their check-ups! Is that even legal?

I requested my kid's X-rays which were already paid for and they charged my again for the same item!
I feel I was ripped off by being charged twice for the same thing. I reported them to BBB

A month ago I had my wisdom teeth removed at my local West Coast Dental office. Although I was very nervous about the procedure, I knew that I could trust West Coast Dental because I have been going to them for years. I love the staff and all of the dentists and I trusted their advice. I always leave there smiling, and my wisdom teeth procedure was no exception. The entire surgery went smooth!! I was given a general anesthetic because my oral surgeon had to extract all of my wisdom teeth at the same time. I fell sound asleep and did not feel a thing during the entire procedure. I didn??t need stitches in the area, and my recovery lasted only two days. They gave me painkillers which eased the pain and by two, I was as good a new! Oh yeah, I only had to take one day off. I had the procedure done on Friday, and was back to work on Monday morning.

Doc apologized and when i tried to get my money back for a half ass service the Doc LIED SAYING they did use it when I was present the whole time!!! HORRIBLE EXPRIENCE EVER AND NOW THANKS TO THEM MY 4YR OLD IS TRAUMATIZED OF THE DENTIST...THANKS DENTAL ASSES!

I feel like the person who goes over your EOB need more training. Her objective seems to be to get as much money as possible, not looking at what your plan covers and your share of cost! I had to resort to calling my plan to get the correct share of cost which was hundreds less than what she quoted. I mean really, she could not have been that far off by mistake! The next day was my appointment and to my surprise I was told that they couldn't find my chart or my scheduled appointment! Had to reschedule for the following week, wonder what's in store for me!!!

They outlined for me a whole series of procedures which would have cost me $4,000 above what my (excellent) insurance payed for. Then they trotted out the loan forms, which got me suspicious. When I talked about getting a second opinion,

I wanted a simple teeth cleaning and they did x-rays. They found about 25 things wrong with my teeth and when Heidi came to tell me the pricing, it was $5000! When I said I wanted a cleaning, shedding listen and seemed irritated that I turned down her $5000 offer! Then she offered me $2700 for two filings, caps, Medicine, and deep cleaning! I turned that down as well... When I asked for the price of the deep cleaning, she said it was $700! What a rip off! Needless to say, I didn't get my teeth cleaned! Had to find a new dentist. I will find a new dentist for my family.

I called 1800dentist to find a new dentist since my insurance changed. These people were recommended to me by them. I sat in the waiting room for 30 minutes before they saw me. They took me back for x rays, which took a very long time to do because the girl doing them kept stopping to argue with her co-workers and gossip about one of the other girls that works there. After that I waited another 30 minutes to see the doctor, who is rude and mean. Then another lady came out to ask about payment. First question out of her mouth is "how is you credit?" Then she hands me a piece of paper, told me i didnt need to read it, but had to sign it to continue my treatment. It was a credit card application. I told her I was not going to sign and I would rather work out a payment plan. She told me they dont do payments there. I said that they were over priced, so she offered me a payment plan. These people are just after your money. The place is gross, staff is rude, and the doctor is by far the worst I have ever seen. I promptly changed my insurance and am now paying more so i can see my old dentist.

This is the worst place to go to fix your teeth, don't ever go there or you are of risking your teeth and your money, went to replace crown and they made my teeth so small that It could not hold a crown although there was only replacing old crown.transfered from one to another , all unprofessional, I am sure they still in the learning process . No experience what so ever..........and still lost my teeth and they had their money could not get a refund. they always ask you to pay upfront for undelivered services ..that was by far the worst dentist experience in my life, definetely they are not doctors they are bloodsuckers.stay away from them.

same experience as cj5555 except i did not get any refund at all or a fraction of it. I am in pain, had another dentis fix it. the specialist that did the root canal was good, everyone else is incompetent. they dont even have consistency with the dentists. and the receptionist is untrained, so much for customer service. I'm not giving them a chance to repair my teeth because I am afraid that they will do more damage than they already caused me, and I only have one set of teeth. they cost me more for dental work and having a dental insurance when I coulda gone to another dental clinic and paid out of pocket fully. I'm new here in America, I did not check on this clinic before I had things done. I learned my lesson and I hope that this review will be helpful for everyone, think twice before going to this clinic, like I said, you only have one set of teeth. And btw, when my credit card company was investigating my dispute against the payment for the service, they lied about me not talking to them because I have proof that I called them several times before I disputed. They are ridiculous, waste of your time and money, and they will cause you pain, in your tooth and pocket! And if your worried about dentist hopping, going to this place is like dentist hopping as they are never consistent with their dentists.

Dental Associates of Torrance is after your money. Additionally, they provide poor quality dental work and their dental staff is not friendly. You can go anywhere else and receive much better dental treatment. You would also save yourself a lot of money. At the very least, you should get a second opinion before letting them work on you.

I had a bad experience with this dental office. They recommended unneeded dental procedures and now I have pain in teeth that were perfectly fine. I have since had to go elsewhere to have the work repaired. I gave them a chance to fix the work, but the pain is still present and they would not give me a full refund - only a fraction of the cost. GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!!

Their orthodontist is bad too. His work is sub-par. The only person worth seeing in this office is Dr. Dorsey, the oral surgeon. But then you risk having to be treated by their other staff...

I've enjoyed every time I've come into the DAT office. After putting off my yearly checkup for... years, a friend recommended DAT to me and I owe him a drink because they do great work. Modern technology, courteous and fun staff, and superb service.

Less than 6 months until my next checkup and I'll be there.

I absolutely despise going to the dentist, but DAT makes it OK. They are amazing and remember everything I tell them (even better than my hair dresser!).
My Roommate was the one who recommended me onto DAT, and I have now passed them on to my boyfriend.
My dentist even sings along with the radio. Super adorable. And the whole staff has an upbeat attitude.

I am completely satisfied with my decision to start a procedure in this office. I was referred by a friend who has been a patient of this office for a couple years. He told me about their great service and affordable payment plans. When he go into the details of how amazing this place is, I had to see it for myself. I immediately canceled my appointment with the dentist I was with at the time and I made an appointment at DAT. I have switched to them after my first appointment and I have been happy ever since. They are great!

DAT has put an end to my "dentist-hopping". I used to switch dentists many times due to the fact that I could not find one that gave me the feeling of satisfaction I was looking for. I couldn't find one that treated every patient with respect. I couldn't find one that was honest, patient, and would always answer my questions. When I finally found DAT, my life was complete! The entire staff is skilled in what they do, including the hygienists and receptionists. They always put a smile on my face, and I leave their office knowing that I am getting my moneys worth every time I come in for a cleaning or something else. Other dentists should look at DAT and learn from them!
