I am a patient at Dr. Holmes' praxis since January 2009. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable of the regular on-the-job procedures, but not knowledgeable of what ionizing radiation (X-ray) means and that radiation also has harmful effects. The staff may take numerous unnecessary X-rays of the same tooth without concern for the amount of radiation given to the patient - as they did to me (unfortunately this seems to be the case in many doctors' offices that have an X-ray machine). I had several cleanings and fillings done and the staff did a good job. After completing a filling Dr. Holmes even removed a dark spot on one tooth that had bothered me for a long time - without charge. Dr. Holmes did two root canals on me. The procedure for the root canal took three hours, but was done very professionally, comprehensively and thoroughly. I was very pleased with the result. Dr. Holmes is knowledgeable, skilled, very meticulous, friendly and polite.

Dr. Holmes and his assistants and hygenists were absolutely wonderful; however, what the telephone receptionist fails to tell you is that on your initial visit, you are NOT scheduled for a cleaning, even if you have requested it.

After the initial dental exam, I was told I could not be seen for a cleaning for approximately seven months. As a new patient trying to find a dentist, I was stunned. The receptionist/office manager was smug, arrogant, and completely uncaring. When I told her I could not possibly wait seven months for a cleaning, she in no uncertain terms told me that I would need to find another dentist, and their office would be glad to email the results/xrays of my dental exam.

Their front office point of contact is completely unprofessional and is out of sync with the rest of this friendly office. I am sorry that it will be necessary to find another dentist.

Pros: dentist, assistant, and hygenist

Cons: 7 month wait for cleaning as a new patient; procedure is NOT explained when you call to schedule a cleaning
