Get what you pay for? The place is like an assembly line of patients....in and out like cattle..probably the reason I just saw in the paper the one dentist just bought a house for over a million dollars.....a pediatric dentist buying a million dollar house..

I quit taking my daughter there several years ago after a newly loose tooth was extracted. I felt bad for letting it happen to her, but trusted that doc knew what he was doing. She bled like crazy and cried for hours. No way was I getting her back in their chairs again. I didn't realize they get $100 per extraction. Didn't think about that being a motive for the extraction. Wrongly trusted that my kid was in good hands.

My son goes there and that has been the only place that has been patient and kind to him. I will honestly say that I would not take him anywhere else. We drive an 1 1/2 hrs to come there. I have blue cross blue shield and I never have a co pay or balance. My insurance has covered it all. The only thing he has done is a cleaning and exam, X-rays etc.

You walk into this place and 2030 slaps ya all over the place. It's like an indoor amusement park in the waiting area. Zoo animals coming out of the walls and ceilings, even in the back. Televisions in the ceiling above teeth cleaning area and etc. This place can't be topped. Never known of it to be expensive either. I heard one of the dentists there was a race winning jockey in the Belmont Stakes several years ago.

I rejected this place after just calling around asking who was taking new patients. Whoever was doing intake over the phone was extremely rude for no reason. I don't know how anybody would get past that step and want to go there.

Well if you don't have insurance that pays 100 percent they are not so nice there...I know it is a business and they deserve to get paid but they are ridiculous

Are you all crazy? This is the best dentist office our area has to offer. My kids always get first class care at this office. I highly recommend them.

Actually, Pharmd44, there are a number of qualified pediatric dentists in the area. I hardly think Teays Pediatrics is "more advanced than anything in this state." Ex.- Jeannie Bailey, for starters. Family dentistry, and just as, if not more, advanced. Except maybe not at making ridiculous "music video" promos with their usually hostile staff.

I guess it just depends on how much you value your kids health as to how much you will spend. I personally would not take my kids anywhere else. They like it there, love the staff. They do an excellent job!

This office is ridiculous. Most of the staff is absolutely rude. They herd kids in there one right after the other. Over a hundred patients in a day. When your kid is in and out in less then 20 minutes you can guarantee that they aren't getting a proper cleaning. My kids were just as impressed with the tv's and video games as the next kid but we have those things at home. Bottom line....you are there to get your child's teeth cleaned not watch tv and play games. You should also make sure an actual hygienist is the one doing the cleaning. You are being charged the same no matter if its a dental assistant or an actual hygienist.

I know for a fact that a hygienist is the one who has cleaned my kids teeth every time we have been there. It's not the TV or games that impressed us. It is the caring staff! They are good with kids and good at what they do. My kids have never been in and out in 20 minutes and its not because they don't cooperate. It's because they take their time an do an excellent job.
