I really liked Dr. King and all of his staff. Today was my first time seeing him, and he put me right at ease. He was very through, and took the time to listen to my concerns. He quickly found out what my problem was and we made a plan. His office staff was very friendly and nice. The hygienist was great. I will be returning in six months for a cleaning and check-up.

I really liked when this was Dr. Bryan Cousins office and the office people were great,warm, professional and friendly Iris and the few that were there at the time were. Much has changed and now the girl that makes the calls almost bullies you to come in, in a almost threatening manor. Saying things like " If you don't want to come in for a cleaning we will be happy to give your records elsewhere." WHAT!!!??! Who does that? Makes it seem like your business is struggling, if you need to treat your loyal clients like that. "Make an appointment soon or don't expect to come here" I think Dr. Cousins would be ashamed of the way they treat people. They are like sales sharks and make you feel extremely uncomfortable over the phone. One office girl called and rudely hung up on my son. My neighbor said she has dealt with the same girl and has gone elsewhere because of it. Its not a place I would recommend, not based on the work of the dentist but the way they do business, which is extremely unprofessional. If you have to have to make threats to get clients to come in, there is something very wrong.

Dr King took over the practice of Dr. Cousin about two years ago. Dr King assured me that he had made an agreement with Dr Cousin that any additional work on a patient of Dr Cousin that was required would be covered "in full" for a one year period. Dr Cousin had put in a crown for me that had to be removed because of decay underneath. The result was that the tooth had to be pulled and I had to have expensive surgery to prepare my gum for an implant. Dr King assured me that "everything would be covered" - including the required implant.I went forward with the gum surgery - about $3,000. - only to find that the bills for this work were NOT being paid by Dr. Cousin. When I questioned Dr King, he , at first, told me not to worry. After several months went by and I was still receiving bills from the surgeon, I AGAIN questioned Dr. King. He stalled me for months by saying that he 'hadn't got around' to talking with Dr Cousin. Finally, after about nine months, I received a letter from Dr. King stating that neither he, nor Dr Cousin ,had agreed to cover these charges! I visited Dr King and he couldn't even look me in the eye! He again mumbled that the charges were my responsibility! Dr King's Office Assistant was sitting there and heard the entire conversation. She agreed with me aloud, in front of Dr King, that his was reprehensible behavior. I sincerely hope that she moved to an ethical office by now; she was a very nice woman. So now I am left with a $3,000 bill and a hole in my upper gum where a replacement tooth needs to be implanted! PLEASE, PLEASE - AVOID DR KING AT ALL COSTS!!!!! He is NOT an ethical person. Shame on him.

to renee s..... sure! looks like i am the person that paid for your superior dental work. say'" thank you.".i paid the total amount of $1,215.00 for a gold? crown. i am not sure if it is gold as the color is silver. but dr king said it was "white gold". o.k. on the, next visit shortly thereafter, one of the office staff, talked me into with a big sales pitch,to get my teeth cleaned that day. i don't have insurance which she was well aware of, but knew i had charged the above amount on my credit card. she told me if i made an appt. for this service at a later date and i cancelled there would be a charge. o.k.?? well... so, instead of telling this young lady that it was no way to treat a good paying customer, and decline her generous offer of applying for credit, because most dentists give cleaning and xrays as a complementary service. however, this office does not offer that for patients. at least not for me, anyway.so... she guides me into the hygienist room, where i sit in the chair and meet "Marina"... not for nothing, but this woman should be a mortician's helper,no kidding! i looked at her and smiled with a hello. she scared the hell out of me with her stern expression and the phony looking dark brown wig,that hardly matched her pale powderycomplexion.she didn't smile and proceeded to put on those blue vinyl gloves like mengele's mother. slowly and methodically. i wondered if i should get up and run out of the room and out of the darned office. so.... then, she begins to clean ,yes, she was gentle surprisingly, but when she began to scrape a perfectly good filling out of a back tooth, needless to say i was about to become violent. like i need this, so readers, i have been to many hygienists in my lifetime and i never met one like her. perhaps she should take up another profession like what i don't know. this service cost me 115.00 with the sr.citzn disc. what a deal!! dr. king is excellent and his assitant but i would not recommend that woman to anyone.,truthfully. and i don't feel i was treated very nice when it came to the financial end of it all. i don't feel that i will return to that office again because of it. so, faithful readers, that's the inside scoop. on the Q-T and very hush hush...! furthermore, dr. king owes me at least 200.00 for overcharging me for the cleaning....that took 10 minutes to complete....highway robbery....do yourself a big favor and go to another dentist office.

Dr. King is very friendly, as well as his staff. I enjoy going to get my teeth cleaned by his hygienist, Jill. I recommend this office! I want to add a more in depth comment as I have read the ones listed above totally knocking Dr. King and his work ethics. I want to say in his defense that he is fixing a lot of work that was done wrong by the dentist prior to him......I am very friendly with the office staff and have heard wind of such things happening. I only feel bad for Dr. King because he has to deal with these repercussions of horrible dentistry, which was not done by him. I believe he is a wonderful dentist. I had to have a replacement crown re-done, due to issues from the previous dentist, and he was very kind with the cost. He gave me a discount, because he understood that it wasn't my fault, nor his, so why should I be punished. Overall I RECOMMEND DR. KING TO EVERYONE! I always have a pleasant experience when there.......
