Find someone else – I agree about the cleaning experience from CMoe. My spouse and I both had our teeth cleaned there by a young woman who appeared to be inexperienced or experienced without proper education. Neither of us found it particularly painful but both of us agreed she was ill-trained and our "cleaned?" teeth did not look it.
I had trouble with one particular area in my mouth. I felt as though the office was taking a dart board and hoping for a fix. Did they miss anything? I feels like it and based on my last cleaning (not by them) could four teeth really have been as cracked as they are since my last cleaning and office visit with Koudio. I guess it's possible but unlikely. I did have fairly major work and they just seemed to keep their fingers crossed it would stop the pain. It did not. I also didn't go back and decided my best bet was to learn to deal with it.
Worst Experience at a Dentist – By the end I felt violated.
They quoted me one price on the phone which was totally different from what they charged me. I understand a few dollars difference but this was plus 50%.
The cleaning tech looked harried like she wasn't going to get a lunch. The cleaning was painful. All the while, I heard an older gentleman in the next room trying unsuccessfully to have a conversation about his treatment plan. He was very exasperated. The dentist came in at the end told me I had 5 cavities and they printed out a quote for over $700.
I decided to drive 5 hours to see my old family dentist for a second opinion. He was dumbfounded: first by the rates on the quote, then told me he would only be filling one tooth identified by Kouadio, and he would be filling a second tooth (a front tooth!) that was in very bad need that Kauadio hadn't even listed on the quote!
I am so glad I did not shell out that much money for 4 totally unnecessary fillings! What an awful experience, and imagine, I waited several weeks to see this guy.
(My old dentist got me in on the day I asked for 2 weeks out, no problems.)
All this said the receptionist is a ball of sunshine, what a sweetheart. Too bad she works for such an inept staff.
