Dr.Barbra Gill
I have been going to Dr Gill for over 10 years. She is very straight forward and has never missed a diagnosis on any of my teeth. I have over 20k invested in my mouth with many bridges and caps and sometimes fall asleep in her chair. I too have been to many specialists including the ones she recommends. They never contradicted each other on treatment procedures, and if they do have a difference of opinion she never forces any treatment only recommends it. I to am a smoker, until recently I never felt like it was a crime to do so.... but people like the ones in this review section are the stuffy snotty ones I choose to avoid.

I, too, had the misfortune of choosing Gill as my dentist. She always smelled of cigarette smoke and was never able to begin my appointments on time. Also, she consistently failed to send out the 6-months cleaning reminders that she had you fill out after every cleaning.

Thankfully, I only had to see her for cleanings! There are plenty of dentists in Austin so my suggestion would be that you NOT choose this one.

I lost a filling & realized I was overdue for a dentist & made an appt with Barbara Gill DDS . After a preliminary exam she scheduled me the next day.

Gill repeatedly berated me for lack of visits. I heed advice but not in the "you're a fool" context. As the appt progresses her equipment malfunctions-hi-pressure air lines hissing, irrigation taps leaking on the floor. She gives numbing shots & struggles with her tools. The drill has no torque so I feel heat and pain. She gives a 2nd shot and leaves, returning later stinking of cigarettes. Other tools tried are also inadequate or broken. Another shot is given, I continue to smart at jolts of pain. She?s agitated at equipment failure & inability to numb me.

I?m patient & accommodating in contrast to her. She vehemently declares I'd be "lucky if a root canal saves the tooth? and sends me to endodontist Jeremy Smith. He examined me a week later, says ?all you need are fillings?. He was fast, professional & had no problems numbing me. He was amazed I was sent for a root-canal, contradicting Dr. Gill. Disappointed w/Gill I go to my old dentist Michael Lessner (NOT on my insurance plan - sigh!) for drama-free fillings. I then schedule recently w/Dr Gill for teeth cleaning-conceding maybe she?d had a bad day as all of us at times do.

At this appt Gill was eager to goad me for an argument, telling me ?I?ll bet $20 you need a root canal in 5 years?. On the exam chair she asked me ?do you trust me to give you fillings?? I paused to formulate an honest diplomatic reply but she cut me off, telling me to leave her office and find another dentist, saying ?good luck finding one on your insurance plan that will see you? suggesting she would revel in my struggle. I told her I was merely responding to the contradictions of Dr. Smith by going elsewhere for my fillings- she should not hold me responsible. She discourteously dismissed me wasting my morning, wages and a drive across town. Please avoid her.
