This female dentist is thee most professional Dr ever! I had veneers upper and lower and they are very real looking. Unlike a few others I have seen there's were very think and artificial appearing. She was very fair and honest about all the remaining issues and presented them to me in words which I could understand. She came highly recommended to me by a team of Medical Dr's in the Medical Center and I urge anyone to share the dental needs with this Wonderful Dentist !

Pros: Very thorough - professional - friendly staff

Cons: none

Where to begin... How does one describe pain, fear, humiliation, and anger? Only enhanced by the fact I had to pay for it! To start, I went to this office to obtain services to replace a bridge. This bridge had previously come loose and was only held in place by wal-greens temporary tooth cement. Rather than pop it out, the dentist insisted on "drilling it off". This was of course with a $50 per cap (3 of them) charge, for a total of $150 charged that was not needed. They got that done, took measurements and fitted me with a temporary bridge and crown and sent off for my permanent bridge and crown. Next, when I came back to have my temporary bridge pulled off, the assistant slipped while trying to pull it off and whacked my front tooth with the forceps/pliers looking tool. I thought it chipped my front tooth. The dentist of course said it did not. Anyway, onward to what I thought was the final chapter in my dealings with this back-alley practice, they installed my permanent bridge and single crown. THE CROWN WAS CRACKED!!! That is right folks! I paid a grand for the crown alone to be put in my mouth, and it is cracked. It did not crack after installation; it was cracked before it touched my mouth. I either took it with their promise of a new one later or I walked out with an uncrowned stub in my mouth. I was assured it would be replaced. This was JUNE. It is also still painful to chew on my bridge. So there I am, happy I will never have to deal with them again, and I bite down on some candy. Yup, my tooth broke. In all fairness it was not a tooth that they had worked on. So, since they already had x-rays and such, I went back into the belly of the beast. Well, I thought they had x-rays...for some reason the x-rays taken 2 months ago were no longer good and I had to pay for a new x-ray of the tooth. (they did full mouth x-rays when I was first taken as a patient) The real downer was seeing them base a treatment plan off of my old x-ray!!! Now this is where it gets good. At this point I am talking with 20ish assistant and she admonishes me for eating candy and tells me that I am lucky it didn't ruin my bridge. I casually commented to her that the previous bridge had lasted 15 years with me eating whatever I wanted. She took this as an assault and told me that I would automatically need a root canal. I also remember at some point that while taking the x-ray she jabbed the corner of the film down into the soft tissue under my tongue until I forced it out of my mouth. Keep in mind this is not a licensed dentist, but an angry young woman who has not so much as glanced at an x-ray. The dentist later comes in and examines my jolly-rancher war wound, EXAMINES THE OLD X-RAY, and then proceeds to explain that I will need a root canal. He also explained why. At least that is what I think he was doing because after EVERY sentence or pause, this assistant was sure to accent it with the kind of hearty "uh-huh" or "that's right" one would hear in a Pentecostal sermon. It was all ok until I could not hear the doctor and politely asked her if she was a licensed dentist. I thought that would have quieted her, but it only fueled her to get LOUDER. The dentist asked if everything was ok and if I understood my options. I replied that despite moderate interruptions, I did. This is where it gets just Wonky! The girl ran off and literally cried...salty tears. Some office person came in, heck it might have been Dr. Folta for all I know, and asked me if I had a problem with her assistant. She had an angry glint in her eye, but to her credit remained professional and courteous... the entire time she tried to make me feel like a beast because this wacko is off crying. After doing the best I could to explain my issues with the assistant, it was passed off as a "personality conflict". Some people just don't get along I was told. WHAT?! I pay for a service, the assistant was rude. Think about that. What industry does anyone tolerate that in?
