Great dentist! – Now this is a dental office I can trust. Family Dental Foster City did an excellent job with a tooth ache I had. I hardly felt that needle that I have a huge dislike for. I needed a filling that was in bad shape replaced. Another dentist here in the city said I needed a crown. Family Dental said my old filling had a leak and that was the reason I had pain. No need for a crown lets just redo that filling and be on your way. All is well now and I'm not a few hundred dollars poorer because Family Dental isn't out to milk a persons bank account dry with unnecessary work, they are very professional.
On my first visit they showed me all my teeth one at a time on a monitor so I could see what my teeth were looking like. Maybe I didn't need to see my teeth so big and up close but now I know first hand that my old filling wasn't sealed properly.
Thanks for being open 7 days a week. It really helps when you have a busy schedule like mine.
Open 7 Days a Week, WOW – Everyone is wonderful at Family Dental. I have a dreadful fear of dentist offices but since I have been coming to Family Dental that has improved tremendously! I always tell my friends and colleagues how wonderful the dentist treats me! I refer to you when ever I can! See you soon!
GO TO THIS DENTAL OFFICE!! – I'm horrible about taking care of my teeth and I was in so much pain this weekend. I frantically called around looking for dental offices that were open. Thank goodness family dental was open and they were able to fit me in right away. I can't believe they are opened 7 days a week. The girl on the phone was so sweet and understanding about the situation I was in. The Dr. that examined me was great also. I'm usually afraid of dentists but this dr. made me feel comfortable and was really gentle. She relieved my pain and I'm so glad I found this office. I would definitely recommend everyone to go to this office.
This office is open 7 days a week – I have been going here for over 5 years now. They always keep their office up to date. Their doctors are very knowledgable and always explain everything very well. They are able to show me my cavities with large digital xray pictures. Even though I'm not a dentist even I can see the holes in my teeth on these large pictures. They are open 7 days a week. It is great to have a dentist that is open these hours. I remember when my old dentist was only open from 4 days a week. I always seemed to have a problem when he was not open. I highly recommend this office.
21st Century Dentist – Family Dental is incredible. I went for my regular cleaning and they used this cool laser device called a Diagnodent. With this laser they were able to diagnose cavities long before they would have turned into root canals or extractions. The dentist was explaining to me that our teeth are a lot harder because of fluoride and it is a lot harder to diagnose cavities the old way. This laser device can somehow bounce light into the tooth and find these cavities when they are smaller and have not ruined the whole tooth. If your dentist doesn?t have one of these you have to show them this info.
The next cool thing they showed me was the small camera that fits in the mouth, which magnifies the teeth something like 20 times. They were able to show me cracks in my teeth, which was proof that I needed a crown to keep the tooth from breaking apart.
Then if this wasn?t enough they used some kind of digital xray that again increased the magnification in order to see the cavities long before you could see them the old fashioned way. I remember my old dentist pointing to some dot on a little tiny postage stamp xray and all I could say was ya I guess I can see it. With this digital system they are able to really show me the cavity.
This office really brings dentistry into the 21st century.
Service with a smile. – Several of my coworkers have recommended this dental office. I have always hated going to the dentist because of a horrible experience I had as a child. My insurance finally kicked in at work so I decided call in for a checkup. They were able to get me in on a Sunday. I didn't even know dentists were open on SUNDAYS!!!!
On the day before my appointment i got a reminder call, good thing cuz i almost forgot. They gave me directions to the office. Parking was a little bit tight, fortunately I got the last space. The girls up front greeted me with a smile which is new. Most of the time they just open up a small window and shove some paperwork at you. I was seated within 10 mins and pleasantly surprised at the interior of the office. That place is huge. My dentist and assistant were both very professional and listened to my issues. Told them my scarey dental history and we all got a good laugh. They promised that it would be different there. They used a little camera that took a bunch of pictures of some of the old fillings I had from when i was a kid. She showed me how a few of them had dark areas, what they meant and why they recommended replacing them. I must say that this is the best experience I have ever had at a dental office. They really care and left it up to me if I wanted to take care of a few fillings. The front desk people explained my how much i have to pay and how much the insurance will be covering. Not sure how they were able to do that so quickly on a weekend but they explained that they have about 100 other employees also from my company. I have an appointment scheduled next week to start with a few of them. I'll keep everyone posted to see how they go.
painful root canal that last 6 months – Bad experience!!! I have a root canal retreated 1 years ago. first of all, doctor took over 2 hours and twice. after that it hurted me so bad for 6 months and I ended up still have the tooth pulled. The doctor is so inexperienced here. I should have just the tooth pulled and be over in 5 mins. But somehow I was lead to believe that a retreatment is good and i suffered so much...... This place sux and they just want to make money of you for all the fancy things they have in the office. Most of the treatments done here are unecssary or excessive. They make patients suffer at patients' cost. Dont be a succker.
inconsistent care – I have been going to tis office for years. It is getting worse as I notice. I am used to see one doctor, now that I am seeing many new faces. Each time is a different doctors. They are not as honest as before, all of them take turn to "convince" me to do all sort of unnecessary treatment. I am kind of disappointed after having coming here for a few years. I am not used to these new faces and new changes. I think these guys are trying to milk me, they dont care about my teeth. They are all into their fancy office now more so than before. I am leaving tis office, its kinda hard after you are used to one dentist. But I think the management is moving away from being a family dentistry. its quite disappointing.
??? – I had a deep cleaning done here. the first doctor scratched and cut my gum by accident. I was having some pain. when I came in for them to take a look at it, I was seen by a different doctor. She told me that I have infection or some leisons that can be dangerous and cancerous if not checked. She terrified me and send me to see a periodontist. When I saw a periodontist, she said that it was only a scratch from scaling my teeth. I was rinsing with warm salt water like what the periodontist told me and everything clear up. I have to go through all these non-sense when all they need was to tell me that it was an accident . I start to think that those guys are idiots and can not tell a cut from cancer. They totally missed diagnosied me and billed my twice also.
consider yourelf being warmed – This office will succk you dry. when I called to make an appointment, they told me we accept your insurance and everything is good just come on in. After I had some work done here, I receive a bill that will take me over 6 months to pay off. Their inital estimation is way off. I was kind of upset, so I did a little bit of research. I call my insurance company and find out that none of the dentists here are network providers as they claim to be over the phone to get you in. The owner Dr Chan is also not a insurance network provider. After that, they will convince you to replace your old fillings. Then, they charge you on a fee that is a lot higher than the insurcane company accepted, when the insurance did not pay for most of them, they will pass the bill back to you. when they say they will "maximize" your benefit, they meant it, they will succk up all your insurance money in as little visit as possible plus sending you a bill. this is the basic scheme that this office is running. There are many shaddy dentists working with the owner to get you. It took me over 8 months to figure it out their scheme, including many phone calls to insurance company and their receptionists. On top of that, my new fillings make me so sensitive to cold now. I did not have any pain with my old fillings before. Consider yourself being warmed.
