Firstly, let me say the 50.00 "Emergency" charge was totally unjustified. As far as I was concerned, they overbooked and realized they couldn't manage to fit me in until the next day after xray and diagnosing 2 fillings needed.
Returning the next day I was informed that I would need a root canal...first I heard of this...I replied telling them to extract the wisdom tooth...and fill the molar next to it. 430.00 to pull at tooth and 370.00 to fill another. This is hiway robbery. These crooks should be reported to the BBB for price gouging.
More yet...I have been pulling pieces of root out with my water pik at home since. Their dental chairs are the worst ...

We do appreciate constructive criticism in the hope that our patients will provide us good feedback to improve our service. A patient does pay for an emergency appointment, and typically our emergency exams are meant to diagnose the issues and get the patient painfree, not provide treatment, as this is a half hour reserved for short notice emergency patients. If you have any issues continuing as a result of your treatment, please contact our office directly.
