- General Info:
- Since our establishment in 2004, we have provided outstanding dental care for children and patients with special needs. Our experienced doctors and nurses are what makes our surgery center not only safe but unique in an atmosphere like no other. Our staff will provide the most caring and pleasant visit for your family. We understand that it is very difficult for some parents to obtain quality dental care for their young ones, especially when they are uncooperative and fearful of the dentist. We are here to give parents an alternative other than strapping their child to a papoose board. Dental treatment is usually completed in just one visit! If you are not familiar with our company and your first contact with us is online: We would be pleased to hear from you! Please let us know what your needs and questions are, we will be more than happy to help.
So I had a appointment at 9:30 a.m today! And i'm still waiting to be seen. The young lady in the front desk wasn't really helpful, she couldn't give me an estimate on how long I would be waiting. I asked if it could be 2 hrs 1 hr she didn't even want to answer me. I guess this is normal here. I should had called around and checked for other locations that take medical. I don't think just because we have Medical we should settle for this kind of treatment. Will definitely be calling dentical for more options.
I do not recommend this business for any child! This business claims to specialize in children that are disabled but absolutely by far the worse experience that I have ever had helping my grandson. They over book appts by hours. My 14 year old grandson had a stroke at birth and is severely disabled. He weights 155 pounds and is about 6 feet tall so a big kid with Cerebral Palsy and Autism to name a few if his disabilities. His appt time was 10 am which we thought was great because he loves to eat and as requested no food or drink after midnight. We arrived by 9:45 to check in, he was not seen until 2:45. At 2 pm Joey had a meltdown because he saw water in the bathroom and he wanted it. My daughter held him from behind as I sat on his lap. He spit , hit , screamed and kicked, my daughter in tears told the receptionist he now is in danger of hurting not just us but other children and himself. It was then at 2:45 they took us to a private room to wait. Thank God we were able to calm him down for the next hour until they were ready for him. They did a good job on the dental work even though I asked the Dr what we could do to help make brushing his teeth a good positive experience for Joey? He ignored my question and never answered it ... From there at 6:30 pm now, a little 5 foot nurse wheeled Joey out who was sleeping off the medication. So I said "Really? Now why would they not send out a man to help get Joey in the car? I really want to see how you are going to do this without hurting my grandson"!! Needless to say my daughter and I had to get Joey who was dead weight into my car!! I will never go back there again nor do I recommend you take your child there!!
This place is ridiculous. They book like 29 patients at the exact time. There is no parking in the parking lot and the staff should mention that on the phone. I circled maybe 27 times and finally made my own parking. I finally make it inside and am told my child could not be seen because his father was not here to sign his paper work mind you they NEVER MENTIONED this when set appointment was made. This establishment makes western dental look like a Neiman Marcus.
