I was recommended by another dentist to go to Scott because I had a tooth that needed extracted. I went to his office, his staff at the desk seemed nice and all, and they had me fill out some paperwork. I get invited by his assistant to a room to have my teeth examined, she was nice but a bit stuck up. He came in and answered all of my questions (granted, I'm 21 and all of my internet research on tooth extraction made me a bit paranoid). Afterwords, we went to another room where his assistant had me sit. He numbed my tooth (she was being nicer to me then) then he gave me 2 shots. After that, he clamped my tooth with a tool, told me it could potentially break due to a hole being there, then he pulled it. The pulling never hurt, just the shot. After reading mixed reviews, i think some people don't like him but it's like my dentist told me: this guy just isn't much of a talker. He really just goes in, gets his work done, and goes. But if you have questions for him, he will answer. I asked everything from if my teeth would shift to what the small black mark on my tooth in the back was (he said it just looked like staining, I take very good care of my teeth actually. Floss, brush, etc.). I think people need to realize that doctors and dentists aren't mind readers. If you want them to spend more time with you, you have to tell them what you think is wrong and ask questions. Once I asked him everything, my mind was put at ease. Granted, when i am writing this, I just had it pulled very recently. So unless something bad happens where I have to change this review, I will say that he's really not that bad a dentist; just wish he was more vocal. Oh and whoever said his equipment is unsanitary, trust me, I looked at every tool due to the sheer fact I am a germaphobia. There was nothing wrong with his equipment, all of it looked clean. You all have to remember that these people won't remain in practice if they do things like that...
the waiting room and front desk are nicely designed. The rooms are bland the bathrooms have no soap. the cahirs are torn and all worn out. the employees are nice but Murphy was all stuck up preppy. Id recommend this ccompany if it wasnt for scott. thi cant see what im typing so its prob messed up. but u get the jist
