Our son received good care from Dr. Plunk. The issue was not with the care, but with how little our insurance covered on the visit. Dr. Plunk is not in-net with any insurers, thus even though we have good insurance, we were not given insurance discounts and would end up paying 75% of the bill out of pocket. To add to this, we were misled by his office staff upon booking our first two appointments and were surprised by this when we got our bills. When we approached them with our concerns, we were given the standard answer that there information is clearly posted on their website. When it comes to my family's finances, I will not be misled by this dentist and his semi-fraudulent billing practices.
I went to Dr. Plunk my entire pre-adult life (up to 17), and now 10 years later I'm wishing I could still use him!
I was a complicated patient with many missing permanent teeth (meaning something like 10 extractions over the years), an impacted tooth, and a very small mouth (translation: not enough room therefore very crooked permanent teeth)...but I always loved going to the dentist! Dr. Plunk's excellence was exaggerated when it came time for me to get braces. My mom and I decided to do several consultations--the other Drs didn't even know about the impacted tooth (which would require surgery) or what teeth were missing, but had me really nervous about the whole process. Dr. Plunk was very gentle, but straightforward about the surgery, braces and then the cosmetic work I'd need after to make my canines (fangs) look like lateral incisors (next to the "two front teeth") which I was missing. His demeanor is perfect for kids and moms, and his dentistry style is practical and simple, but refined.
It's about time for my 2 year-old to have his first dentist visit, and even though Dr. Plunk is a good 30+ minutes away for us, I wouldn't consider anyone else! An excellent dentist and man!
Our children have seen Dr.Plunk for 5 years, and I recommend him constantly to other families. My son has inherited thin enamal and his teeth easily get cavities. Dr. Plunk's office understood this diagnosis, and has helped us with a plan to protect his teeth.
The staff gives 110% each and everyday, that includes the scheduling and payment clerks. Many years ago we had several bad experiences with another pediatric dentist's office, and there's no comparison once your kids are under Dr. Plunk's gentle care.

Dr. Plunk was recommended to me by a co-worker after I had a not-so-great experience with another dentist on my child's very first visit to the dentist. After taking my child to Dr. Plunk, the difference in dental visits was like night & day! My child has been going to Dr. Plunk for about 8 years and we love him! He's awesome, has years of experience and he's very good with kids (and moms)! I highly recommend him.

Dr. Plunk is AMAZING! First of all, his office is a haven for my children. His whole staff caters to the needs of my kids and my kids love going to see him! The actual dental room, where Dr. Plunk and his staff work their magic, is a creative, vibrant room with up-to-date equipment and entertainment for the children. If Dr. Plunk worked on adults, I'd choose him to be my dentist. He is just a thoughtful, kind, and sincerely caring dentist that I would recommend to any concerned parent.
