I had 3 implants done at Enfield Family Dental and the staff was so good with me, made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Everything went well. I was surprised at how well it was done; Dr. Patel & Stephanie were great & knew just what they were doing. I was also surprised at what little discomfort I had. I was working and eating the next day. They are all healed and I have my bridge in and it is just like having my own teeth without the pain. I would definitely recommend implants to anyone who needs them.
My immediate impression of the office was not a positive one. The sign outside is old and does not have the correct dentist s name on it and when first walking in, the entryway wallpaper was falling off the wall. My concerns were put aside after meeting the dental hygenist, who was wonderful. However, when Dr. Patel came into the room she informed me that I had numerous cavities and would also need a night guard because it seemed I was grinding my teeth. I was surprised to hear this because I ve only had one cavity my entire life and never noticed the grinding. Being a bit suspicious, and concerned about the cost of all this dental work, I went for a second opinion with my old dentist. I was told that I only had one cavity, the rest were just stained grooves that did not need filling. I asked about the night guard and was told that was also unnecessary, as my enamel was fine (and I was shown it on the xrays). Some dentists are just out for money...I will not be back to Enfield Family Dental because I have chosen to go to a dentist who looks out for my best interest. Be cautious of dentists who are out only to make some extra money.
Don't bother calling if you have an emergency. I have 3 abscessed teeth and was seen by one of the doctors there (not Dr. Patel) a couple weeks prior so I called the emergency number they offered for after hours and the man, Dr. Patel I'm assuming, was very rude and said that I should have called during business hours (which I was not aware they closed at 2:30 on Fridays and was unavailable anyway) to have a prescription filled to get me through the weekend or at least the evening. He said there was nothing that could be done. What is the point of the emergency number? Great Job EFD.
My Hygienist was An and she was Fabulous!!!! I have been a patient of Dr.Toner's for 31 years and this was quite tramatic ,having a new Dentist.I believe his name is Dr.Deros(or something like that)but he was very Good.I felt very confortable with him.I also explained that i do not have insurance so i needed to know that he would be straight up and honest with me,and that he would never tell me i NEED something done unless it was absolutely necessary.I am hoping for a long relationship with Dr.Toners Successor.Although these are mighty big shoes to fill - Dr. Toner was the greatest dentist and person Ever.
I have been a patient at Enfield Family Dental for many years. After the change in ownership, I did not know what to expect, but my experiences have been extremely positive. My new dentist Dr. Chimmiri does excellent work, explains the various procedures and gives me good advice. I have highly recommened him to my family, friends, and co-workers. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Iam very pleased with the entire group.
I decided to try this dental office because my friend had a really good experience. I am glad I did. Everyone there is so friendly and helpful. I am a dental phobic and the Doctor I saw was very gentle and listened to what I wanted. I told all my friends about this office..and my wife and kids now want to go. I would definatly recommend this place to anyone!
