Response to "Very Argumentative" Dr. Homanfar always likes to get to know his patients, so he does talk in great length regarding their teeth and the options they have on treatment. Some patients become overwhelmed when they experience many areas of concerns and they begin hurting or need fillings, root canals etc. The Doctor has been asked many times to “Just pull them out” because they know older people who have dentures and they appear to do fine with them.” Generally, the doctor explains to the patient “That when you have your teeth removed permanently, you will not only have bone start disappearing, also the facial muscles attached to the jaw bone will start receding which will altametly effect the appearance. He also explains that dentures will affect the ability to sense the temperature, consistency, and, as a result, “Flavor” of the food. Nevertheless, the doctor does take into account the patient’s ultimate decision. At no point has the doctor ever accused or insinuated that a patient is a “Drug addict.” He does however; try to find a reason that a patient with extensive decay, especially when they are at a young age, has ever had a history of drug use. The doctor does genuinely care for his patients and he does ask about all forms of a patient’s health history, surgeries and any other form of information that may be helpful in the care of his patients. Patients overall health can be a direct reflection on some of the decay, diseases and other factors that a patient may be experiencing.

My husband and I found an advertisement in the funny papers 19 years ago when we moved to Reno. We have followed Dr. Crowley each time her practice changed. Aside from being an excellent doctor, she has a very gentle way about her that makes us very comfortable. She has always been there for us and especially during emergencies. We always leave with a great result- as my husband says " your teeth never looked better". By the way, she also has an inate ability to choose friendly and accommdating support staff who make us feel welcome. They always take the time to know patients, well enough to recognize our voices when we call for help. One visit fell on my wedding anniversary when Ron was out of town, I was greeted that day with a banner across the room wishing me a "Happy Anniversary".
I was passing through Reno today and my temp crown fell off. It was too far to go back home. I checked the net for local dentist and found this awesome place. I called around 10 am and they said they could see me at 12:30. I showed up around 11:30 because I had no where else to be. They promptly saw me within about 10 minutes. They were all so very nice. The office is spic and span and very modern equipment. The fee was a great deal also. Within about 30 minutes, they had me on my way. Thank you so much.
