I had a procedure done some time ago, but I am still suffering pain from it and feel compelled to share the word. What should have been an extremely simple filling replacement turned into a terrible ordeal. Dr. Close put me at ease during the consultation, but that was the calm before the storm. When I got to the office for the procedure, he seemed extremely rushed, moving from patient to patient very quickly. I believe he did not take proper care when repairing my tooth. When he did my procedure he assulted an undamaged tooth without my consent. The planned filling was not well done. I was in great pain. I had to make several calls to the office to get anyone to care. I am still suffering from this procedure.

I hate this doctor. He behaves so badly with his stuff and is so cold with patients. However, this is what turned me upside-down a couple of weeks ago. I was sitting in the x-ray room, which incidentally is next to the restroom. Dr. Close went to the restroom with his mask on, stayed for a minute, flushed the toilet (that I could hear very well), and rushed outside in less than a second WITHOUT even washing his hands. I am not sure if he was wearing gloves but he still had his mask on. I don't want to think about the patient "whose mouth he was working on"... I still have flashes of him getting outside...

I went to Dr. Close as a new patient to have an X-ray and Cleaning. After being X-rayed, the dental hygenist spent 30 minutes poking and prodding my gums (which was painful) saying that the x-rays indicated that I was suffering from serious bone loss. The bone loss meant that I could develop pockets in between my teeth where bacteria could build up and therefore I needed an "extra thorough cleaning" to prevent this. I was advised that I would likely have to come back pending Dr. Close's opinion for the cleaning which would cost me $150 outside of my insurance. Following this, I switched to another room to see Dr. Close. He came in for only a couple minutes and decided that the bone loss was even worse than what the hygenist said. He told me I needed to reschedule ASAP for a thorough cleaning. Additionally, he told me that I needed my two wisdom teeth out soon as well. He was very "cold" the whole time and did not make me feel comfortable. He didn't explain why I had bone loss or why my wisdom teeth needed to be taken out. He and the hygienist seemed to think I had poor dental hygiene. They told me that they could not do any cleaning today because they had run out of time. As background, I floss twice a day, brush my teeth two to three times a day, and have been to the dentist usually twice a year since I was a kid. At no point, had any of the dentists I've been to mentioned anything about any symptoms of bone loss. Additionally, I have been told my two wisdom teeth are coming in fine and they really didn't need to come out. I decided to get a second opinion from a another doctor in town (Dr. Badger - I would strongly recommend him) who said everything was fine. I didn't have bone loss and I didn't need my wisdom teeth out, which is consistent with prior dentists I have had. I don't know why Dr. Close suggested I need all these additional treatments (e.g. ineptitude, money, etc.), but I would strongly recommend not going unless you enjoy spending money and like pain. Find someone else even if they are off your insurance!

My 11 year old daughter has had some major work on her teeth when she was younger and is terrified of Dentist. She needed to have one of her baby teeth pulled and she was extremely upset. Dr. Close took his time explaining everything to her (3 times) and was able to calm her down. After leaving the office, she said she really liked Dr. Close and now she was not afraid of the going to the dentist now. He was very kind and patient with her, something that I have not found in a dentist in the past. Thankfully now, she is no longer afraid of Dentists. I have and will highly recommend Dr. Close.

I absolutely recommend this dentist to EVERYONE. He is super great. I have been once a month for a year in order to take care of some work that needed to be done. They are all nice, personable and kind. It didn't hurt and I have a beautiful smile now.

Dr. Close is an excellent Dentist. He is a perfectionist and that creates frustration within his staff. I would recommend he chill a little and try to keep good staff, he will never find perfection in staff or himself. With all that, I will continue going to him as he is technically the best Dentist I have gone to in my 62 years.

Dr. Close and his staff are very professional, and personable at the same time. I've been going to Dr. Close for several years now, and I've never had a bad experience. I highly recommend him.

Very detailed and a prefectionist. I trust his knowledge and advice. Staff is friendly and helpful. He also expects perfection from his staff.
Office is busy but typically on time with short waits. Very clean waiting rooms and working areas. Bottom line he does very good work.!

The Doctor is fine, but the staff is rude and rough. Before appts they call and practically accuse you of not showing up. This office prefers we bring in sick children (throwing up) rather than cancel an appt. They charged us $40 for trying to rescheduled. We rescheduled, but at a different dentist.

If you are fortunate enough to have this Man perform dental work on you, you will not be disappointed His many years of experience make him damn good at what he does. Is he blunt? yes is his staff? yes. will you get in and our according to your appointment? yes. I have floridosis, and had to have a couple fillings in my front teeth. As i a moving to Alaska I let them know in advance what my departure date was and when they had a cancellation I jumped on it. I have never in my life had the smile I have today he went out of his way and went above and beyond to make sure not only we're the fillings done correctly but he also fixed all the fluoride stains. Additionally I had my wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Tolley, he was nice enough to chip my Upper left second molar. I asked him to fix it. his solutions was to bust out a drill. after allowing him one chance I asked him to stop and I would have my dentist fix it, and Dr. Close did. feels better than my real tooth did.

If you need to have work done for whatever reason and you want the best cosmetics and you've been hurt in the past, this is the man for you. He's not going to be fluffy with you and he will point out to you what you need to do. but they run a punctual on time office with work that is second to none.
Thanks you Dr. Close I'm finally not worried to smile.

Absolutely horrible. Long waits due to overscheduling. The staff is always fighting with each other and the dentist. Would not recommend this dental office unless you are desperate.

I highly recommend this dental practice. Dr. Close and his staff have always been pleasant and professional. The facility is nice and clean, my wait times have been very short---always welcomed. I had to get a crown (my first) and was very nervous before my last visit. Dr. Close is a very talented dentist, I am extremely pleased with the outcome and the overall experience!

I get the impression that Dr. Close is a perfectionist and is very hard on his staff. If anything they seem scared of him. He and his staff were nice to me as the patient and Dr. Close did great painless dental work. But I changed dentists because their policy is not to make appointments 6 months in advance and they also don't send you a reminder to call when it's time to reschedule. Before I know it it's been 9 months or more since my last appointment. Then I get the little lectured for waiting so long.

Not a great experience at all. The doctor was very rude to his staff. The staff wasn't nice either. They wanted to get you in and get you out. The person in charge of insurances was super rude. Don't waste your time!
