I was visiting my daughter when I needed to see a dentist for tooth pain. Dr. Swanson worked me into his schedule the day I called and took care of the situation easily and painlessly. I appreciated the warm welcome I received upon entering the office, and the staff were very professional and friendly. My bill was reasonable, and if the need ever arises again I will definitely return to Dr. Swanson for dental needs.

I have sensitive teeth and I went to Dr. Swanson for the first time. Usually they tell you you need this and that, but he actually only recommended a tooth paste and rinse and its been helping me a lot. Most dentist are looking to nickel and dime you. I go there on a 4 month recall now and I have seen great results.

I moved here from New England and needed a dentist. As soon as I came to Dr. Swanson, he made me feel welcome and comfortable, especially since I sometimes feel anxious going to the dentist. His team is understanding and gentle. They checked my insurance for me before hand and let me know what my fees were before doing work on me. I felt very comfortable. Again., it was hard leaving my dentist for years in NH and I am happy that I found Dr. Swanson as my dentist!

I went to Dr. Swanson to get some checkup with my teeth so I can get Invisalign done, The first time I went he said that I need a Crown done and I needed a deep clean. So I was ok with all of it because it's been a long time since I have seen a Dentist but when I told my wife that the Deep cleaning is going to $1800 she thought that was high, she said go to my Dentist to get a 2nd opinion. I went to see her Dentist and he said that my teeth where in good shape and didn't need a deep cleaning but if i did need it done it was only going to be $700 not $1800 with Dr.Swanson. So at the end of all of this I would not see Dr. Swanson because he's looking to get rich off each person.

About a year ago I had my daughter go to Dr.Swanson to put in a false tooth,this was due to a botched root canal by a Dentist down South.I think it was the #29th tooth,Dr.Swanson attached it to the surounding teeth,#28 & #30.It was around $1500.00,he did a good job.I then went to him for my teeth.My #32 tooth that was root canaled,posted & crowned over 25 years ago was giving me pain.I asked him why this was happening,being this tooth had its nerves out & was dead.He ponderd & then said it could still give pain & maybe theres an inflamation around or below the roots(should have refered me to an endodontist).Anyway x-rays were taking that day.A week later when I went back,Dr Swanson says I need 2 fillings,the #32 tooth should be pulled & I have a fairly large cavity in my #17 tooth & that he wanted to do a root canal & put a crown on it.Now it's getting a little nutty,this #17 tooth isn't hurting me,why not fill it,also theres no tooth above it,the #16 tooth which is right above the #17 is the only tooth in my mouth that is missing,it was pulled 20 yrs.ago.The #17 hasn't touched the tooth above it in 20 yrs.If it gets that bad,just get it pulled,why pay well over $1000.00 for the canal & cap when theres nothing above it.I told him to just fill #17,fill the other 2 & pull the #32 tooth.He then tells me,he doesn't pull teeth,he has a dentist that comes up from Spring Hill every wednesday to pull teeth.(you know darn well it's going to cost more to get this tooth pulled from this guy from Spring Hill,surely he's got to kick back to Swanson). He filled the 3 teeth,runs away to do the next person & leaves me with a young girl who just started there to clean up the excess filling around those teeth.The next wednesday I went to get the simple extraction that Dr.Swanson said it would be of tooth #32 pulled by the Dentist who came up from Spring Hill.he pulls it & gives me 2 stiches,now it's a surgical extraction $240.00 (I told you a kick back) A day later my right hand & right upper lip goes numb.I go to Swanson to ask what did that dentist numb me with,swanson'busy,the desk girls tell me he used septucane,not novacane,WHY?.Still numb 4 days later,I went to a doctor who gave me pills for it.Now I also have a lump thats hurting me under my back gum,it's a piece of bone or tooth that didn't come out.I go to Swanson ,he's busy (hiding?) a young dentist who's still learning cuts the gum left to right where the bulge is & trys to grind it down with that spear shaped utensile they use to clean between the teeth.He meant well,but it didn't work.now I got this piece of bone or tooth protruding through the cut he made,& the rest is healing.I went back to Swanson (he was hiding again) got a wingbite x-ray,took it to an Oral Surgeon,he knew exactly what it was & removed it.It was a piece of bone,ah finally after 20 days of pain.. This is why I wouldn't advise anyone to see Dr.Swanson
