Horrible experience at this dentist office. Went there for a cavity, after finding out I did not have insurance he quickly informed me that I would be needed a root canal followed by a crown and I needed $1,900 cash my next appointment which they insisted I scheduled right away. He informed me that if I didn't get the procedure done they would have no choice but to pull the tooth and since it was in my " smile zone " and I was such a "pretty looking young lady" he would hate to have to do such a thing. At the time i was also 7 months pregnant, he kept reminding multiple times me if i waited how hard it would be to be a " New Mom" with a toothache, basically intimidated me into making a appointment right away. the nurse told me my appointment would cost $29.00 the amount of an x-ray, a couple minutes before leaving he asked if he could clean out the cavity for me since it possibly could have impacted food, to which I agreed. He cleaned the cavity with three squirts of air and a quick floss. When I went to the desk to pay my $29.00 the secretary informed me that I owed an extra $70.00 for the dentist cleaning the cavity. I'm no dentist but $70.00 for three squirts of air and a quick floss seems like a rip off to me, feeling taking advantaged of I payed the amount and left. Determined to seek a second opinion, I made an appointment with a new dentist and explained my symptoms, she asked that I bring a copy of the X-ray I had revived since being pregnant they didn't want to repeat any type of X-ray. When I went to get a copy of my X-ray the receptionist was nice untill she asked the reason I was picking it up, to which I replied to get a second opinion, she became VERY rude and reluctant to give them to me. Seeing the second dentist he informed me I did not need a root canal or a crown, that I simply had a cavity. And that I could wait untill after my son was born to get it filled and it still wouldn't be bad enough to need a root canal. Long story short this dentist office is all about sponging you for as much money as they can, regardless of your health. I would NOT recommend this office to any one, once he heard I was paying cash my visit went from $29 dollars to an extra $77, being $99 dollars total, and my cavity went from a filling to a $1,900 dollar Cash only procedure to which I didn't even need. Using the fact I was pregnant and referring to how hard it would be as a " New mom" having tooth issues and how I was a pretty young lady who didn't want to have missing teeth in my smile zone, he bullied me into making an appointment that day. I feel like he had no regarded for me or any stress he would be putting on my unborn child, he simply was money hungry, stay clear of this dentist office.
DO NOT GO TO THIS DENTIST – VERY BAD DENTIST. HE WAITS FOR CAVITIES TO GET WORSE AND WILL CHARGE YOU MORE TO FIX THEM. BELIEVE ME, I KNOW. HE COULD HAVE DONT THE RIGHT THING AND SEALED OR FILLED MY KIDS TEETH LONG BEFORE THEY NEEDED ROOT CANALS. AS A RESULT I HAD TO PAY ANOTHER DENTIST DO 3 ROOT CANALS IN BABY TEETH PLUS ONE FILLING COSTING ME OVER $1000. DO NOT USE THIS DENTIST - HE IS OUT TO GET YOUR MONEY AND DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU OR YOUR KIDS AT ALL. HE CHARGES THE MOST FOR OFFICE VISITS, CLEANING AND SERVICE. MY KIDS WENT FOR REGULAR CLEANINGS AND HE COULD HAVE INFORMED US OF PROBLEMS MUCH SOONER AND TAKEN CARE OF THEM MUCH EARLIER. WHEN I CONFRONTED HIM ABOUT WHY HE DID NOTHING SOONER HE SAID "SOMETIMES WE DO AND SOMETIMES WE DON'T".
DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE!
