Best dental experience I've ever had, and that means something after all my hours in various dental offices. Dr. Augspurger himself- not an assistant- spent a lot of time with me explaining why things were happening in my mouth, and not only what needed to be done but why as well. His staff were super friendly, and the whole atmosphere was "homey". No white coats or austere attitudes in this establishment. In spite of my appointment being on an emergency basis, every time I was with the Doctor I felt like I was the only patient he needed to work with- a human being not just a number. Best of all, instead of extracting a tooth that my former dentist thought was dead, Dr. Augspurger found it to be very much alive and removed the old filling and decay that were causing the trouble. Chances are good that my tooth will live and be healthy. I didn't lose a part of my body, and that's worth a lot! Actually looking forward to my next appointment to keep improving the health of my mouth.
