Terrible, this people only want to make money of you, that's all they care about. The assistant julio threatened me all of the sudden; he started talking that if one to sue a dentist, that will cost a lot, will require paperwork done properly, etc. Total nonsense as I wasn’t even thinking of suing anyone, forget about talking about it; he brought it up out of nowhere. For re-cementing crown on temporary cement they charged me $219. Dr Harrison told me that this crown is not good anymore, need to put in new crown at $955. I went to another dentist, who for $50 visit, showed me ex-ray and explained that crown is good, he can re-use it, but probably need a root canal, prescribed antibiotic to calm pain down while I am searching for root canal specialist. I then wandered why Dr. Harrison did not mention antibiotics, my friend told me probably he wanted me to go crazy with pain so I’ll pay him new crown. All this happens while you being in pain, btw.
The fast talking, sales pushing, sarcastic assistant should be enough to keep people away from this place. The hygienist is even worse! The office equipment is outdated. The prices are NOT reasonable. An F rating should be enough for would be new patients to go elsewhere.
I suspected they intentionally suggested much more work to be done on my teeth than necessary just for the sake of profit. My new dentist confirmed my suspicion today, he told me that much of the work done at Coast Dental was totally unnecessary. In other words, GREED!
UNETHICAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It`s sad and I hope they pay through the nose for this sort of indefensible corruption.

Due to an emergency, I made an appt with Dr. Tran to , but when I got there, I was told she didn’t work there, and I would have to see Dr. James P. Harrison. After being shown to a room, a man came in, listened to the problem. Then another man came in and introduced himself as Dr. Harrison. After x-rays, the first guy came in and said I needed a crown. Since I wear Invisalign braces, my family dentist asked the dentist to simply fill the tooth. Dr. Harrison agreed. At the 2nd apt, I was asked to sign a release form which said the procedure could rupture necessitating a root canal. Alarmed, I asked questions & the dentist said he had previously ruptured a patient’s root in the past. I asked him if this could happen with my tooth. He said, “No,” because the cavity was far from the root. I asked him if he felt confident about the procedure. He said, “Yes, but your questions have compromised the doctor patient relationship, so I’m not going to do the procedure & left the room. I signed the form, but his assistant said Dr. Harrison would not do the procedure. I wrote a letter of apology but the assistant refused to give the dentist the note. Then the assistant then said, “I offered to do the procedure last week, but you left.” I asked, “You offered me the procedure? He said, “Yes, but you left.” Confused about what he meant, I said, “But the receptionist said there wasn’t time for Dr. Harrison to do the procedure and he nodded and said initial visit would be exploratory. Again the assistant said, “I offered to do the procedure right then but you left.” I answered, “But the receptionist told me the office was closing in twenty minutes. So you intended to do the procedure?” The assistant said, “Yes.” “But I want Dr. Harrison to do the procedure,” I responded The assistant said, Dr. Harrison will not being doing the procedure. So I wrote a note to Dr. Harrison, saying I regretted asking questions, and asked that he do the procedure. After I wrote the note, the assistant refused to give it to him. I said, I wanted to speak with the dentist himself, but the assistant refused. I asked him if he could just please give the dentist the note, but the assistant said, “No.” Then I asked for a copy of what I had signed. The assistant refused to give it to me. He asked me to leave. I said I hadn’t don’t anything wrong, and wanted the dentist to do the procedure. He threatened to call the police. I said, “Go ahead and call the police.” But the assistant did not call the police. Finally, it seemed pointless to stay so I left very upset for having wasting so much time. I’d avoid Dr. Harrison, and his spooky dentist pretender assistant.
