My mom went to get the bone of the tooth rebuilt. After two visits over two months at his insistence, the doctor scheduled surgery a week before Christmas to clean out infection and rebuild the bone in one tooth. When he popped off the cap, he found that what they thought was a bone problem was actually a cavity. He then proceeded to do surgery on her bottom left quadrant--without discussing with us--and collected $1200. He changed his story several times regarding this--first said there no infection then said there was. He did surgery on her gums without our permission. And due to his slowness, my 80 year old mom spent a miserable Christmas. And her tooth is NOT fixed--and he handed her the cap, so the tooth is actually worse than it was.

I was referred to Dr. Porten for periodontal abscess that came up from nowhere. I waited for 20 minutes in the room and when he finally came in, he examined me for less than a minute and couldn't tell me what the possible causes were. He said that he would have to think about it and come back in 2 weeks. When I came back, his office staff seated me in his office where he proceeded to tell me that I needed a dental extraction (even though I didn't have a cavity and he still didn't know why it happened!) and told me I had to pay out of pocket since it wouldn't be covered. He also told me that I would have to have CT scan done and I would have to pay out of pocket (even though I have good medical insurance) and he knew a radiologist who could do it for $300. So shady!!!! When he realized I was in the healthcare profession, he changed his tune but I had enough. I walked out never to return again!!! Every dental specialist I went to after for a second opinion, thought that his license should be revoked! The dental abscess is gone, I had a root canal and it saved my tooth - no thanks to Dr. Porten!

This is more intense then a Dentist. I was set at ease right away. This procedure is painful but I was OK with it because the Doc did everything to minimize my pain and fear. The staff was great and very helpful. Dr. Berry was very professional, caring, and above all skillful and I haven't had a problem since THANKFULLY! I'd recommend everyone to go if you need to.
