My experience with this office was not good. I had come for a regular dental cleaning. The next thing I knew they were telling me I had gum disease and needed to have this treatment that would cost 1100 hundred dollars. I had never been told anything like this before. Everyone would tell me I had a smile like Julia Roberts. I wish I had got a second opinion. These people caused and infection in my mouth and kept telling me it was my fault for not brushing and flossing enough. They insisted that another treatment would resolve the issue. I almost lost my teeth because of these people. They caused permanent damage to my gums. I ended up seeing a specialist that was able to clear up the infection in my mouth with a series of medications and dental treatments that really worked. The damage that they caused to my gums are permanent and my smile will never be the same. DR. Ma was the Dr. that was in charge of my dental care. They also wanted to change out all my silver fillings for white and crown half of my mouth. They tried to convince my entire family that they had gum disease. I was the only one stupid enough to get the gum treatment . So everyone else has not had any gum issues since they stopped going to this office.
Listen to the DON'T RECOMMEND comments. Sale, Sale, Sale! I equate this place to a used car lot. The first thing they tried to tell me was the effects of gum disease, and then sell me on some water pick treatment that my insurance didn't cover (WHICH THEY DID NOT NOTIFY ABOUT).
I feel like I have already given this place too much press with this short rant. They are dishonest. They will try to sell you an unnecessary product or treatment plan before providing you with financially viable options from which you can chose. DO NOT WASTE TIME HERE. PERIOD.
Friendly & professional – We have been visiting this practice since moving to Charlotte in 1995, and have found all the staff to be unfailingly professional and friendly. They are very thorough and communicate everything they're doing and why. And while they may occasionally recommend certain additional treatments, I have never felt pressured to do anything extra that I did not want/could not afford. They have worked cooperatively with all the various dental plans we've had over the years, and they offer a discount for paying by cash or check, which I appreciate. But the best part is, my kids LOVE to go to the dentist! They are always bugging me about when they can go again.
Best Dentist – I have been going to Dilworth Family Dentistry for 2 1/2 years now, and my teeth are in great shape now. Before I suffered from bleeding gums and discolored teeth. Now my teeth and gums are very healthy and I have a great smile now The staff is very friendly and professional and they take time to answer any questions you may have.
Dr. Fisher and Dilworth Dentistry focus on customer support! – Where I had some concerns in the past, Dilworth has a renewed focus on customer support!!
Dr. Fisher and his staff lisen well and communicate / inform pateints about what they are doing. Caroline was really friendly and knowledgable while cleaning my teeth!!
Friendly Staff +Thorough Cleaning = Great Dentist Experience – I really enjoyed meeting everyone on my first visit to Dilworth Family Dentistry. Dr. Ma and his staff were friendly and thorough and the office is very conveniently located.
Excellent Dental Practice – This is an excellent dental practice. I have been going to Dr. Fisher for almost 30 years. The staff is friendly. They have all of the latest equipment. I have never had any problems with any of the work that they have done on my teeth. And trust me over 30 years I've had some work done.. They always go over the cost of any procedure before the work is done. I feel they really care about their patients
Bad Dental Advice – When I moved to Charlotte I set up an appointment with Dilworth Family Dentistry for a cleaning. Before they even looked in my mouth they began lecturing me on how common gum disease is. After the cleaning they told me that my gums were diseased and that I needed to enter into an expensive 6-step treatment plan to get rid of it. Then they took me into another room in order to sell the plan even more. I was very skeptical because I have been going to the dentist regularly my entire life and had never heard that I had bad gums. Six months later I went for a cleaning to a different dentist in Charlotte and was told that my mouth was perfectly healthy. Do not go to this office. Health care professionals should be people that you can trust and I did not get that feeling at this office.
DO NOT GO TO DILWORTH!! THEY ONLY WANT YOUR MONEY!!! – I wish I had seen these reviews before I went to their office!! I made an appointment to get a crown put on (over $1,100 procedure) and they told me that everything in that appointment was included in the cost. They ushered me in for x-rays, cleaned my teeth and then Dr. Ma came in and told me that I had gum disease and that he couldn't put my crown on. They made it sound like my mouth would rot away if I didn't have this $1,500 procedure done to clean under my gums...and then "maybe" they could see if my gums were strong enough to put the crown on. THEN, as I was walking out they gave me a bill for $320!!! They are completely misleading and tell everyone they have gum disease!!!!! They did not perform the procedure they said they would and did not tell me that they were going to be charging me $320!!!! THEY WILL LIE AND MISLEAD YOU!!!! THEY CHARGE YOU FOR THINGS THEY DO NOT TELL YOU ABOUT AND ONLY WANT YOUR MONEY!!!!! THEY ARE LIARS AND THEIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STAY FAR AWAY FROM THEM AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS!!!!!!!
VERY bad – They tell you one thing and they charge you something else. VERY EXPENSIVE!!! 2 Thumbs down
