Been going to briter dental for 15 years. NEVER AGAIN.
They will tell you anything you want to hear for your business, not to mention, they have signs in the lobby, to remind patients to brush their teeth, before they see the ortho. Kinda gives you a heads up of the clientele you will be sitting with in the lobby.
I was told I could have braces for 6 months... It's been 16 months, and Dr. Alvandi has the nerve to mention my mood swings.
An eager beaver receptionist called me last Thursday. "" Mrs. Wainwright, your retainer is in, when can you come in? "" I say, when can I? She says, "" today at noon."" i said, ""ok, I have a tooth bothering me. I'll see you at noon.""
I get there, and an assistant comes to see me to tell me, dr, alvandi does not have time for me.
So, I'm hurting, have a fractured tooth, and after 15 years, time for another dentist.

I had a consultation with the younger dentist, I guess she's the daughter of the owner. I'll have to say, that it was a very detailed and awesome conultation and exam. She was VERY professional and super nice...however...I know it's about growing the business and making $ but don't lie to patients about what they REALLY NEED!
This Dr. told me 1) my cleaning was going to be $200 more because I have build-up on the back of my teeths that a normal cleaning won't remove so a special instrument had to be used and 2) I have a cavity on the side AND top of a tooth so of course, the charge went UP!
I went to 2 other consults and NONE said this was true. I ended up having a regular cleaning and that's ALL! Ger a second opinion! These people are out to claim all the can from your insurance!!
This is a nice office. Very relaxing when you walk in. I disagree with others when they say the wait is long. Dr Flemmings is very fast and professional. She takes time with the patient. Ive recommended this office to most of my family and coworkers. and yes its true the docs are in business attire and best of all 5 inch heels. I definitely recommend this office.

Great staff, great doctors, I am really glad I came here to get my treatment done...
The office is very clean, they gave me my options and made sure I understood how my payments would work out.
Dr. Alvandi made sure to make me comfortable during the procedure and explained what she was doing as she was doing it - which I feel takes some of the fear out of going to the dentist (let's be honest, it's never fun).
I have read the reviews and I can agree on some things like you will always have to wait over an hour to finally get to see the dentist. They over book. the dentist is pretty and nice but she doesn't do a very good job with cleaning. One thing I did not agree on is that they always call to remind me about my appointment. I have taken my kids here about four times but I am also looking for a new dentist because of the long wait.

I have to preface this review by saying I am TERRIFIED of the dentist and making me go is literally like ""pulling teeth!!""
I called Briter Dental to make an appointment as an emergency because I had a toothache that seemed to be getting worse by the minute. The receptionist was very friendly and told me I could come in right away. Despite the fact that she squeezed me into the schedule, I did not wait long.
Dr. Alvandi did the exam and could tell I was very nervous. She took extra time to try to calm me and when it came time for the injection, to my surprise IT DID NOT HURT!!! The procedure took some time, but I am so happy with the outcome and the time the doctor spent on me that it was well worth it.
I would definitely recommend this place to a friend, and more importantly, my wife has already set up an appointment to get her check up.

I went in for a simple cleaning. Despite this, the dentist tried to set me up for another procedure and tried to carry it out despite my questions as to what she was doing and why and my refusal for anything to be done other than what I came for. She was unable to answer my questions and raised her voice at me, taking a tone with me, when I refused to allow her to proceed with the procedure she wanted. She assured me, despite my claims that all I came for was a simple cleaning, that such was all she was going to do. Instead, she started doing another procedure that resulted in me bleeding profusely from my mouth, at which point I stopped her. After confronting her on the fact that she essentially lied to me, she then promptly walked out the room without apologizing or anything, leaving me there. Even after one of the employees who realized the mistake and said so, she avoided me throughout despite my appointment not being complete. In short, poor service and an incompetent dentist. I'll probably sue, given how bad everything was.
