I went to Always There Dental Care for a few years. At first they were amazing. My Dental Hygienist was great. When I first went in they told me I had Periodontal disease which is essentially gum disease. They diagnosed it and I was told that I would have to get deep cleanings every 6 months which I did for about 1.5 years when they told me that I was cured. Fine. Later I needed a crown which I paid for up front at $1250. When I went in to have it put in the assistant who was in charge of doing it said she thought that it did not fit, turns out she had it in the wrong way, easy mistake right? THEN she said that it was too big for my mouth when it hadn't been shaped down to fit me bite. Basically she had no clue what she was doing with my $1250 crown! Finally Scott came over and put it in.

My insurance said that Always There was over charging for certain procedures (Which may not be uncommon) and when I mentioned it to my oral surgeon he said he had heard that Always There over charges. The kicker in all of this is...

My new dentist told me that I never had periodontal disease at all so after paying a lot of money for these deep cleanings I find out that the gum disease thing was bogus. nice.

As people, the staff at Always There are great, I wouldn't mind having a drink with any of them, but being lied to about something as serious as gum disease? I think that is an unethical practice for a doctor and I am not putting my dental health in jeopardy.

After not going to the dentist for a couple years I finally dragged myself in here because I wanted to get my teeth whitened and get a cleaning. The hygenist who cleaned my teeth said they were in good shape (no cavities) but said I should still have them cleaned regularly. The whitening cost $650 and I was not that impressed with the result. My teeth were not that yellow to begin with so maybe I was expecting too much but for the price I paid I expected more. I actually had it done a second time to see if that would make things better and it helped somewhat, my teeth are whiter now and I haven't had to go back for another whitening since this was done a year ago. The office is really cute and clean, I would recommend this dentist to anyone.

PROS: skilled hygenist, friendly dentist
CONS: somewhat expensive
