Be ware of American Dental Care .This people are bunch of pirates..I was a patient of there and treated by Dr.Amish Patel, he claims world's best dentist.In one of this review he mention that he is doing dentistry since he was three year old..I did not know that one is allowed to do dentistry in diapers.!!He treated my tooth with root canal during my treatment ,I had lots of pain because he can not numb well. I have heard same complaints from other patients too.By the way during the treatment insted of focusing on my tooth he talk about eagles and his girlfriends and he screw my tooth.He broke a file in side one of my root and did not tell me .I had lots of pain after word .I kept going to him then I saw another Dr.in his practice Dr.Bhargav Patel,he was very nice and caring..This people try to screw him as well.Dr. Amish wrote about him in paul M review.I think Dr. Amish can not read english as well ,that patient went to American Dental in 2009..that time Dr.Bhargav was not working there,I guess he started in 2010 .so long story short beware of this Dr.Amish Patel and his family.I am going to complaint state board to take his license ..This type of people are cone artist.Pls. read their review on yahoo..you will come to know how many people had similar experience like me.

I am the owner of American Dental Care, I take pride in having patients being treated properly as I would treat my patients. The doctor you speak of (Dr. Bhargav Patel) is no longer with us, I let him go for the same reasons you speak of others. How he treated patients goes against everything I stand for. I found he was trying to do work that was not necessary and did not do it properly. After having let him go I have personally gone out of my way to make sure each and every patient was properly taken care of and not one patient I have treated has left unhappy. We are not a bait and switch office, we are frank with our prices, if you come in today you will leave with a complete treatment plan that includes the cost of everything (no more costs later).

I would encourage you to please call the office, they will give you my personal number so that I can discuss this with you personally. If there is anyone else also please call the office and let us know. I have been in dentistry since I was 3 years old. By the time I am complete you teeth WILL be perfect, the treatment will be painfree, and you WILL leave with a smile.

I really liked going to Dr. Fried when he had his own office. Since moving to American Dental Care I have had nothing but cancellations of not only my appointments, but those of my other family members. After being cancelled for the same appointment 3 times, I'm moving on thanks to new dental insurance. This is a large dental office that doesn't seem to care about the patient at all. Would not recommend this office to anyone in the future.

DON'T GO THERE! These people are THEIVES, and will rob you blind with lies about problems with your teeth. In 2009, my wife needed a filling put in, because one of her fillings fell out. We tried to get just an appointment for that one thing. We were told you have to become a patient first, which meant x-rays, exam, ect. Reluctantly, we agreed, and scheduled an appointment to become a patient there.
When my wife was examined, they came out to me and told me it is really bad. I asked "why? They proceeded to say she has 11 cavities, gingivitus, and needed deep scaling done on her teeth! I was STUNNED, because my wife has perfect teeth, and brushes twice a day, and had just had a dental appointment with NO problems 1 year prior with another dentist. Then they told me the cost will be $4,280.00! To which I just could not believe it! They offered me dental Insurance which would cut the cost down, which I bought it, and it would cut the price down somewhat, but the insurance was still $270. I told them to fill her tooth she needed filling, but they said it will be more money to do just one right now, and they can't do more than one now because of time. We had to reschedule again. Upon leaving the place, my wife told me a horror story about the hygenist poking hard into her teeth, and at one point PULLED OUT ONE OF HER PREVIOUS FULLINGS! They didn't even fill it on the spot, they just scheduled that to be filled with some of the other elleged cavities in TWO WEEKS!
In the meantime, I found much cheaper insurance online, which they could have offered me at the office, they didn't even thought they accept it there. When I tried to drop their insurance, they wouldn't do it, or give me a refund, so they kept the $270, even though I didn't even use it!
HIDDEN COSTS! Even with the "dental insurance" they STILL try to get more money out of you with excuses like, depending how deep they have to drill into the tooth (level 1,2, or 3 or so) charging more money per depth! Have you ever heard of this? ME NIETHER! Every time we went back it was NEVER what was quoted on the price sheet, and it was ALWAYS MORE. The scaling my wife had to get done, the HYGENIST told her that if she didn't get it done, that "ALL OF HER TEETH ARE GOING TO FALL OUT"! This was the HYGENIST, not the DENTIST, and the same one that YANKED OUT HER FILLING twoo weeks prior!. I called them up and spoke to her, and asked her how she was qualified to make that deduction, and she then tried to say that she didn't say that, but then admitted she did, but insisted it was for her own good! The argument presumed for a while on the phone.
Several appointments had to be scheduled in order to get all the work completed, and EVERYTIME they added more money onto the bill. They tried ever trick in the book, like "oh I thought you had other insurance", or "Oh, but that only covers this and that, but not this". They NEVER tell you what they are going to do and the cost until you are LEAVING, then they demand their money before you can leave! We stopped going there in 2010, because it seems very clear they are ripping people off. Since then, my wife had major tooth pain in one of the teeth they filled. We ended up going to a dentist to discover she needed ROOT CANAL on one of the teeth ADC supposedly fixed!
My wife still has 3 cavities that ADC CLAIMS she needed fixed, but we never went back. This new dentist is going to do a full new set of x-rays, and exam. We did not tell him of the 3 illeged cavities in order to find out if he sees them, which I am sure he won't. THEN we are going to sue ADC, and start a class action suite against them for FRAUD and seek to get their licences REVOKED!
I suggest you go somewhere else. Ours is not the first story of this place. These Indian dentists are running a SCAM, and it seems like all the people that work there are in on it. I will update this later, and seek others to join in the class action suite.
