I took my kids there to get a service done that my insurance fully covered. I specifically stated that these services were the only things I wanted performed.

A month later, I receive a $200.00 bill from the office.

I called the office and everything the woman told me made no sense. She didn't realize she was talking to someone who was very knowledgeable about business, health care, and just the usual common sense. I called my insurance company and I had no trouble understanding her explanation. She said that they do cover the service, it's just that the dentist office used a different term which caused one of the service to not be covered. She also said, "It is common courtesy for a business to let a patient know of uncovered services, so that way, the patient has options." She then told me what could be done.

I called Dr. Pettinato's office and spoke to the same woman. She told me there is nothing they could do.

I studied Health Administration and am fully aware of the loopholes and tricks health care industries take on. Dr. Pettinato is not any different.

But it's his loss because my children have years and years to grow. Their teeth are going to need cleaning/pulling/checking/etc. That's thousands of dollars I will take to an honest dental staff.

I don't like dishonest businesses and will not tolerate them whatsoever. The economy is hard and my family is just trying to make ends meet. Dishonest businesses will not prevail in this tough economic time.

My son had fallen at Daycare and by the time I had found out it was after hours. The initial fall was not as bad as it seemed until my son had swallowed the chipped tooth. I picked him up and freaked. I was referred to Dr. Frank and called him immediately. He immediately called me back (after 6:30pm) and told me to come to his office 1st thing the next morning. My son was alright, he had just chipped his tooth but the fact that he called after hours and calmed ME down made such a huge difference. I go to the Wesley Chapel location and Dr. Frank's sister is the Dentist there, she is EXCELLENT. My 2 year old sat through a cleaning. It is the best experience for a Children's Dentistry. I highly recommend them!

All of the Dr Pettinato's in the N Dale Mabry office are awesome. My 3 children don't even blink when they know they are going to the dentist. It's always been a pleasant exerience. We are moving out of state now and it will be very difficult to replace them.

My 4 children have been going to this dentist for about 4 years. they have always gone to Dr. Frank Jr. I have sent several friends to this office as well. I took my son to have 4 teeth taken out. Keep in mind we have done this before, we were sure we knew what to expect. Well, things did not turn out as we planned. Dr. Frank Jr. has changed offices, so we saw the newest Pettinato. He was given the gas, then immediately given Novocain and then they immediately began removing his teeth. He was squirming and crying. The hygienist, who appeared to be the dentisit's boy friend, was holding his arms to keep him still and the work continued. I at that point asked them why he was feeling pain??? They said, ohhh he isn't he six and does not like to be numb??? Numb??? if he was numb, he would not be squirming and crying. When he was done in the chair he was twitching and in what appeared to be in a lot of pain. Over the next few minutes he calmed down and stopped screaming. I am thinking the Novocain had set in. Parents don't let them start working on your children's teeth until YOU are sure the Novocain has had enough time to work. In my opinion, they were in a hurry and did not take good care of my son. I would go back to Dr. Frank Jr. But will never go back to this office again. I would not let Dr. Terry work any of my children again. EVER!!!!!

Excellent Pediatric Dentist. I took my son to him from 4 years old until he was 15. He is a good person and a great Dentist. My son wishes that he could still see him, but he is now too big to go there. We love Dr. Pettinato. He is excellent.

PROS: excellent, really cares.
CONS:
