Excellent all the way around great communication and staff. She never overcharges and has to be the most ethical dentist I have been to yet. Very nice person who really loves what she does. I will not ever go anywhere else!

I have been going to Dr. Brinson for many years now. In fact, I used to live far away from her, but would make the trip because I enjoyed her and her staff. I find some of the comments on this page odd about lack of communication because she has always explained things thoroughly to me and has never been about just making money. As far as pricing, she is more affordable than other dentists I have known who really upcharge certain procedures. I would recommend Dr. Brinson. She does a good job and is understanding with the patients.

I??ve been a patient of Dr. Brinson for at least six years. Dr. Brinson has always been very professional and thorough when evaluating my dental needs. In addition she has always consulted with my insurance company to verify coverage and the cost before proceeding with any dental work. I would recommend her and her staff very highly. She is a person of integrity with a kind and caring personality and someone that has made my dental experience very comfortable.

Dr. Brinson has been my dentist for several years and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting excellent dental care. The staff has always made me feel like family and they conduct themselves with the utmost professionalism. My dad was my dentist for many years, so my level of expectation was very high in becoming a patient of Dr. Brinson's. I am happy to say that she and her staff have exceeded my expectations from my very first consultation. Dr. Brinson's chair-side manner is excellent both professionally and personally. She is a perfectionist regarding each detail of her dental work and happily I am the recipient of her fine efforts. My dental hygienist is the best! I always feel relaxed in the chair. Dr. Brinson and her staff have always explained each process prior to proceeding so we're all on the same page. And Dr. Brinson's office manager makes setting appointments and making payments very easy. I do not live or work very close to Dr. Brinson's office, but I make the trip because of the great dental care I receive!

I first began to see Dr. Brinson when my other dentist retired. I have found her to be very concerned and understanding regarding my dental work, be it a cleaning or making a bridge. I have been a patient for a long time, and followed her when she made the move to Carmel from the Greenwood area. The office staff has always been great to work with and make you feel that you are part of a family. Recently my wife lost a filling, and her dentist was on vacation. I called Dr. Brinson and explained the problem and she said that she would be happy to see her. After examining her, she found that the tooth had cracked and would need a crown. My wife was very pleased with the job that she did, and for seeing her on such short notice. I have recommended her to other people, however most persons perfer to find someone closer to home. For the care that I receive, I would drive even further to see Dr. Brinson if necessary.

Dr. Brinson and her staff are world class. Her office is all positive energy with a friendly, professional, responsible staff. Her office is clean and inviting with cable TV's in every patient room. What a thoughtful dentist! Dr. Brinson herself is highly intelligent, competent, kind, and understanding. Her work is perfect and she takes her job seriously. I had a very bad experience with another popular dentist and she straightened it all out and gave me four perfect crowns on my dental implants. I would say she is a perfectionist who really cares about her patients. Dr. Brinson has never made me wait over five minutes, even in her busy office. I have had about ten office visits.

She is so well thought of that one the oral surgeons I consulted goes to her as a patient. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Brinson. I feel lucky to have found her. One more thing, unlike many other dentists, Dr. Brinson gives her home telephone number in case of emergencies. I highly recommend her.

By the way, another reviewer says she only cares about money. In my opinion, this is the furthest thing from the truth as she offers a nice discount if you pay with cash. She does care about her patients. She runs a first class office with a first class staff and charges what I would say are very, very reasonable fees.. Remember, you get what you pay for in life. She has the best interest of the patient in mind when she recommends a procedure.

Dr. Brinson is clearly more concerned with money than her patients. She seems irritated if you try to ask her any questions about your teeth. If you're looking for an impersonal, assembly-line experience, go here. My hygienist was nice though- otherwise I would want to give 0 star.

Dr Brinson is awful! Do not go to her. My experience with her is that she is a chop shop and does things half way. I went to her to get a filling and she ended up taking out two fillings and not restoring the teeth to a respectable appearance: therefore, I had to get them pulled and replaced with implants. She did all of this without my knowledge ahead of time and did not seem concerned when I left very unhappy.

Dr. Brinson, is personable and answers her own phone. She discusses the procedure and alternatives with you. She is very helpful and thorough. When I was experiencing pain after my orthodontics experience; I could not get a hold of my orthodontist. There was no answer or machine. I called her office and she offered to see me; however, I could not make the appointmen. Her office contacted his office again got a number for me, and advised that my symptoms were a reason to contact him at the emergency number. I was concerned about contacting someone when it was just really bad pain and sensitivity. Dr. Brinson offered to see me if I was unable to get relief over the weekend. The customer service and response from her office was phenomenal. It turned out to be nothing more than sensitivity to the procedure, but she and her staff where there to help me when I felt I needed it!

I, too, found this dentist through my insurance provider list, and went to her because she was close to where I live. She pulled an abscessed tooth which sent me to the hospital for 5 days, required surgery to drain, and I spent a month on antibiotics. She basically 'washed' her hands of and totally forgot that I even existed; absolutely no follow-up on her part to even check to see if I was still alive! This is not the kind of treatment that you'd expect from a medical or dental professional; heck for that matter, the kind of treatment that you'd expect from any kind of professional. Her indifference and 'quality of care' before, during, and after my first and only visit to her was beyond unsatisfactory. I would not recommend this "Dentist" to anyone. In fact, I hope to tell as many people as possible about my experience.

Went to her because she was the closest dentist on my husband's approved insurance dentists. At first everything went well. They took x-rays, evaluated all my teeth.

She was about to get to the cleaning and said I would need a sonic cleaning, but it would cost me around $85 (insurance doesn't cover it). At the time I didn't have the money so I asked if I could get a normal cleaning and she said she couldn't clean my teeth at all until she gave me a sonic cleaning. I had never heard of a sonic cleaning and on that day I heard two other patients "needed" a sonic cleaning as well. To me it just sounded like a way to get some money without dealing with the insurance company.

We are now looking for a new dentist.

My first encounter with Dr. Brinson was the exact opposite of the previous post. When she came into the room, she greeted me and then opened up my mouth and shouted out numbers as she examined my teeth. She told me I had a fractured tooth that would either need a bridge or an implant, without offering any explanation. As she was exiting the room, I stopped her and asked her to please explain the procedures as well as the pros and cons for each option. She said if I had any further questions, to please ask her assistant. For an initial visit, I was very disappointed. She didn't take the time to establish rapport prior to my exam and was very curt when explaining the interventions. I am a physician that understands how hectic the day can get; however, it usually only takes a few seconds of small talk to help the patient feel more comfortable. Most importantly, when telling a patient they might need a surgical intervention it is imperative to explain the procedure, risks and benefits before they can make an informed decision.

We switched to Dr. Brinson after spending too many years with an HMO dentist who found less than 15 seconds to spend with us after the cleaning. Dr. Brinson started my first visit by taking 18 (!) xrays, doing the full cleaning herself, and a full oral exam. She did the same for my five year old daughter.

When it was recommended that I either crown or fill a tooth, she ran me through pros and cons of each, citing exact costs and didn't try to encourage one procedure over the other, though the profit levels were vastly different to her.

I can't recommend her highly enough. She's kind and gentle, thorough and patient, as well as reasonably priced for doing all the "grunt" work herself.
