I went to peggy and thought her staff and office was great, I had to make an appointment to get some work done for an only and some cavities, after she had done my root canal. An hour before my appointment I just had a bad feeling not to go. I called my sister in Salt Lake and made an appointment at the dentist's office she works in. I called peggys office and canceled last minute, which i felt bad about, but i just had a feeling I shouldn't go. I got along so great with peggy and her staff. Upon going to salt lake the next week and visiting my sisters dentist office,
I LEFT HIS OFFICE HAVING NO WORK DONE
He even did my x rays free of charge because he felt bad that peggy's office was going to do so much work (and had done work) that didn't need to be done. Peggys office forwarded to the Salt Lake Dentist all their files.
Upon leaving his office I called peggy to tell her that i was upset, how could two medical professionals be so extremely different in opinions? From onlay to no work at all, he showed me the x rays and pointed to where peggys office was planning to fill a cavity - no cavity. I was pretty upset but wanted to give peggy a chance to explain to me, well she said she stood behind what her plan of treatment was, i was still upset about it but peggys office would not give me a discount on any of the charges. So i paid it and just decided to go to The salt lake dentist when i visited Salt Lake
AND THEN....... I went to my sons birthday party and talked to two dental assistants....... I told them about my experience with peggy and they told me they had patients from peggys office that complained of the same thing.
Dr. Leudtke in salt lake also asked when my last cleaning was, I told him i had peggys office do it 3 months ago, He told me that there was still way too much plaque on my teeth , that should not be there, and that whoever did my cleaning did a terrible job. He said whoever did it was obviously rushed, Dr. Leudtke does all his own cleanings by the way.
I don't usually like to spread anything negative, but after hearing that it wasn't just me, I decided to write a review. I would never go to Peggy preston, after talking to people who work in the dental expertise, they all told me that doing work that is not required is very common. Sadly - I don't think Peggy Preston's Moral compass is pointing North.
I have two front teeth that was replaced years ago and one broke out right in front... Needless to say I was in a panic and Peggy Preston stay late and made my smile beautiful again and the best part she has the equipment and technology to make my new tooth all in the same night.... Thanks so much
Dr. Preston is awesome!
Okay. I absolutely HATE the dentist. Childhood trauma . . . don't ask. However, my parents kept pushing me to get my teeth fixed because I'm "going out into the world," was starting at a new job, etc. I had tried another dentist, and she wanted about $15,000 to do eight veneers. Yeah. Right. My friend had told me about Dr. Preston and how much she liked her, and since my insurance included Dr. Preston, I decided to go. The office was beautiful! Her staff was really kind too. The hygienist, Danielle, was kind and really understanding after I told her about my fear of dentistry. She was actually very gentle during my cleaning, but not so much so that I didn't feel "clean." After my cleaning appointment, I met Dr. Preston, and she was super nice. She recommended what I should get done, and when I talked about the veneers and what exactly I wanted, I felt like she actually listened. Her staff quoted me for $8,000 for eight veneers, and my insurance was going to pay for some of it anyway. Now, some periodontal therapy, three fillings (which really didn't hurt, Dr. Preston is really good with that Novocain, I barely felt the shots, and . . . yeah, okay, I had some nitrous too), and eight veneers later, I love my teeth! I've gotten so many compliments on them. Dr. Preston did a great job. I highly, highly recommend her!
Both myself and my husband have been going to Moana Dental Care for years. We absolutely LOVE Dr. Preston and her entire staff! I have had to see several other dentists in my life due to insurance requirements and by far Dr. Preston is the best I've ever seen. She and her staff are always concerned about my comfort. The office is warm, inviting and friendly. The dental work is first class. I have only the very best to say about this dentist and her office!
What I will tell my friends and anyone else I meet in my day to day life is to avoid Moana Dental Care if they do not want to be robbed. I had the most terrible experience of having dental work done that did not fit and that I could not eat with and when I asked for this awful work to be re-done, I was told that the work would not be re-done and that I would not get refunded for the over $1300.00 I paid for this terrible work. I am a senior and this amount of money is a lot for me to be robbed of. These are heartless people and I am sorry I ever walked into their office. Rob Roy 02/2013
