So, I went to this dentist for a cleaning. I was required to have x-rays taken for my cleaning, and I had an exam by the dentist. While the hygienist was working on my teeth, I felt something in my bridge shift. It seemed okay, so I let the appointment continue as planned.

When it came time to pay, I was hit with a ~ $250 bill, and told that no, there was no payment plan available, I'd have to pay then. I did.

The very next day, I was having a pretzel and the bridge came out with very little force. I went back to the dentist, with the bridge in a plastic bag, to show her what had happened. I explained the high likelihood of her hygienist having something to do with it. Instead of offering to reattach it, she told me that I'd have to have a new one made. She told me that the cost was $1400 without checking, (either she pulled the figure out of a hat, or she knew off hand).

I was shocked. I went to the dentist I had seen all my life in North Jersey, and he reattached it for $140.

My filling fell out within 3 months!!!! The docter was nice, but hard to understand (Rushin or something). Could not talk to the accountant for a month because she was never there. I was starting to believe there was NO accountant that worked there. They kept telling me she was on vacation. I said thats what I was told three weeeks ago. They are known for telling you need a filling and you really do not (found that out after I went)!

First of all I had the dental hygenist that was so quick and not thorough at all, then I was quoted a price to get the deep scaling, which they said was needed. I paid the price that was quoted and then they came back to me and said I owed $310.00 more, I spoke to the billing person, Shannon, she was no help at all and evidently billed the insurance improperly!!! I am so out of there, do yourself a favor and find another dentist!!

My son STILL has to have braces, due to the fact that this office does not communicate, he was approved for a procedure that was supposed to be done after he had his braces, it took a YEAR to get the one approval because they do not know what they are doing, now I have to find another dentist before my sons teeth fall out of his head, i do not recommend this dentist office or their affiliates

I was new to the area so I decided to try Absecon family dental as it is literally around the corner from my house. The dental hygienist told me while cleaning my teeth that my wisdom teeth looked great and I was lucky that I wouldnt need them removed. As soon as the dentist came in with out even looking at my x-rays peeked in my mouth and said oh well youre going to need all your wisdom teeth removed, you need to set up an appointment right away so we can take them out. I decided to see another dentist in the area and one look at my x-rays and inside my mouth and he said that my wisdom teeth are fine and there is no reason what so ever that they need to be pulled. This dentist office doesnt give a crap about you they just want your MONEY$$$$$$$

I have had more trouble with these people. Twice I have been charged for things my insurance company pays for and I had to fight to get the money back. We went for an appointment only to find the office closed for an "emergency"... no one ever called to explain or offer to reschedule our appointment. I got a script for an MRI for my daughter but they can't be bothered to get a precert... she was "out of the office" and no one else in the office was capable of doing this. I took off a day from work only to find out that I have to reschedule the MRI because there is not authorization. I intend to report them to the state and to the BBB

I was new to the area and made the decision to go to Absecon Dental for routine dental exams for myself and two teenage daughters. We went twice in one year before I decided to switch to Galloway Dental. The waiting room was crowded and dirty, staff was unfriendly, and dental hygienist was incompetent. She did a rush job cleaning my teeth and sprayed water all over my face. I have United Concordia dental insurance and I never have to pay extra, except here. The dentist was rude. He made the comment that he could tell I had spent alot of time in dentist chairs. The office is drab and dirty. I will never return and advise others to read all of their poor reviews.

I had 3 local children's dentists see my son. He is 7 and even the thought of the dentist used to scare him. Every dentist he saw said he needs to be sedated to fix his teeth. He had bottle rot that spread to all of his molars, and his teeth were really hurting. I tried everything to get him treated asap, and drove more than 1 hour to see the children's dentist at absecon. He was standing at the front and heard me tell the front desk girl about my son. He called me over and told me to get bring him to the desk. He was real nice and got him to open his mouth. He told me don't worry he would fix his teeth immediately. My son was really scared and didn't want to go back, but the dentist walked him to the back and like 15-20 minutes later my son came out. The dentist pulled 2 infected teeth and capped the other bad molars. My son told me he didnt cry and he is not scared of the dentist anymore. I am taking him back to finish the work and I would tell the whole world to come to this office! I couldn't believe that 3 other dentists couldn't treat him but now my son wants to go back to get the other teeth fixed. I cant thank the dentist enough. All my children will be seen here.

This place has gone downhill. I had a change in Insurance so new paperwork had to be filled out. After waiting a half hour they informed me my Insurance was cancelled. What? That's impossible as we just got this last year. There was a mix up and they didn't want to bother with finding out. I called my human resource manager at work and she immediately assisted in solving the problem. The office people at Absecon Family Dental are all about business and money. They wouldn't see me and bill me later like most would do. No apologies or nothing when it was all ironed out. They were also clockwatchers. Get these people in and out.

i went to visit this practice for a routine cleaning; i take very good care of my teeth and do not mind going to the dentist at all. well - after the exam i was informed that i had a total of 4 cavities! i found this very hard to believe since i have had few cavities in my lifetime. i came back to get 2 filled and figured i would get the others done at a dentist near my home (i was visiting family when i went to this practice). my dentist looked at the remaining two teeth and was shocked that someone requested that they fill them; she said they it appeared to be normal wear and tear - no cavities!!!
i felt like all this practice was after was my money - i waited over an hour to get called back and they were not very friendly. i would not suggest this practice.

I went for an appointment with the Orthodontist, was waiting for 40 minutes. I noticed that two people were called, besides they got to the office after me. I approached to the window to find out why, the lady never pulled my history. I was waiting there for nothing. She didn't even offer an immediate solution, she just want me to re-schedule, the only date available was in two months. I guess the Orthodontist is not there often. I won't be back again. It could have being as simple as: "Please accept our apologies, I am sorry , let me see if the doctor can see you right away", that could save them one more patient/customer. I guess she didn't care.

If you don??t have state benefits it??s a great place to have dental work done.
When I first began with Absecon family dental I had state insurance at the time.
I thought the Doctors were very nice and was excited that I was able to have great dental care. I went there for about a year before I realized having state insurance was an issue.
I broke a tooth the initial visit was fine I got an appointment pretty fast. I was told to come back to see if I needed a root canal if I didn't need a root canal I would have the tooth filled the same day, they didn't have time to fill the broken tooth that day.
Made a third appointment for the same tooth that didn't need a root canal still didn't get filled the day and time promised as the lady at the desk was getting mouthy. I didn't make another appointment after then. The lady at the desk said oh I made that appointment myself and they don??t do fillings this time of day if was her fought but she had the nerve to make it my fought when she knew what I needed done, I live an hour away and they couldn??t fill it after three appointments made me think they were all about state benefits to get the most they can out of the state.

Not good for braces not available for service. orthodontist is there only once a month and if you have an emergency you have to wait or go to the other office not in the area even if its just to fix a spring.

This is a full service dental practice. Services adults and children.Office was very crowded when I went, some people had to stand but didn't seem to mind. Easy bathroom access, reading material to help you pass time.I had a major problem with a abscessed tooth, and I thought they would just give me an antibiotic and make me come back. However the oral surgeon said we are pulling this tooth now! I was so relaxed due to the professionalism and comfort given by dentist and assistant. So comfortable that I was talking while work was being done, dentist had to tell me to "shush"!Tooth was pulled with no problem and I now am relieved from the pain it caused.PROS: Excellent. professional serviceCONS: Can be crowded since it is a popular dental practice
