I had a lot of trauma to my teeth when I was younger from a car accident and have ALWAYS feared the dentist . In fact until last year I hadn't been to the dentist for about 15 years except for when it was absolutely neccessary. I am so happy I randomly chose this dentist after experiencing some of the others in the lynchburg area because they are so friendly and understanding. I explained my fears and past traumatic experiences with them and they are very patient, and accommodating. In fact I am taking my 2 year old for his first dental visit this month and I wouldn't take him somewhere I didn't feel comfortable with myself.

Pros: Patience, understanding of past experiences, and very accommodating.

Cons: none

I have had dental problems since I was a kid and because of numerous fillings and crowns in my childhood I have always HATED going to the dentist. Not so much anymore due to the staff at Forest Dental.

The hygienists are very accommodating - even allowing me to listen to my iPod during dental procedures to calm my nerves. I have requested to take breaks during procedures longer than 30 mins and they have always allowed it. Dr. Binder has always been very thorough, even double checking a previous filling due to some lingering sensitivity.

I have had a VERY different experience from the previous reviewer. I was even scheduled to have two fillings one day and once Dr. Binder got in there to work he said that he thought we really only needed to do one b/c the area in question didn't look as bad as it had on the X-Ray. I've canceled my fair share of appointments due to work meetings, etc and have never had a problem with them rescheduling. I have been in the office once a month for the past 5 months for small fillings and the office was always accommodating in scheduling the appointments in a way that would not be a financial burden.

I've never had any pain during the procedures. The office is FULL of light and very comfortable.

I am a real patient and have been going to Forest Dental for about 6-7 years, since it was owned my McAvoy & Hendrickson and was beside Harmon Eye Center. I felt the need to write this review because of the severe negativity of the previous reviewer - and me having had a MUCH different experience there.

Pros: Pleasant staff, acommodating to the needs of the patient, acommodating to financial burdens, friendly hygenists, nice office/patient setting

Cons: The safety glasses they have you wear are a little goofy... but it's better than having pieces of tooth fly into your eye

Worst dentists I have ever been to. Although I had significant dental problems, they only treated me in the most minimal way until they found out I recently got insurance. Then they started doing unnecessary tests and x-rays. Dental hygienist was a sadist. When I complained of pain when he was probing my sore mouth with a sharp metal instrument, he told me to be quiet that it couldn't possibly hurt because I wasn't bleeding. Even though I had severe pain and infection, I was given an appt. 3 weeks away. Dr. would not give me any pain medication because he "didn't feel comfortable" doing it. Well I didn't "feel comfortable" being in pain. Then when I did have an appointment, some bimbo called me that morning and told me not to come because Dr. Binder "wasn't feeling well". (So far, this has all been about HIM). So I didn't go. I went to my primary care physician because of the pain and swelling and was told I had an advanced infection in my mouth. He immediate started me on antibiotics and told me my dentist was irresponsible. I agree. Today I received a letter telling me they will no longer be my dental provider "due to cancelled and broken appointments and failure to follow through with prescribed treatment". Huh? I NEVER cancelled an appointment. And I never got an opportunity to follow through with treatment. Bottom line: They couldn't care less if you need treatment, are dying of an infection or pain. Avoid at all costs.
