[QUOTE who="informed...."]T his 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.
Really....hmmmm. You should ask them next time you are there. They do have dental assistants cleaning teeth. I'm sure they will tell you if you ask.

I took my children there and was very impressed. The last dentist we went to could not even get my youngest to open his mouth to floss. I was very happy with the staff there

My son and I both are VERY happy with the staff. We have always been treated kindly and he actually looks forward to having his teeth cleaned. Prior to the opening of the Huntington office, we would drive the 70 mile round trip to go to there. We have always received EXCELLENT care. Keep up the good work!

Are u serious? "I guess it just depends on how much u value ur kids health as to how much u will spend". U sound like an ignorant, spoiled, jerk! We all value our kids health, some of us can't afford an over priced dentist. I take my kids to Wilson Martino, they are excellent! Very patient with them and never rude. Not all of us are rich, some of us live paycheck to paycheck, that doesn't mean we don't value our kids health.

I've been taking my children there for over 10 years. Never had a bad experience and all dental work is expensive!! My insurance is very good but they are out of network so I do pay! However, it's not any higher than other out of network providers. I'll gladly pay extra so my kids are in the habit of regular check ups! There are too many toothless people walking around who are afraid of the dentist...just sayin'

Absolutely outstanding and professional. I would not take my children anywhere else. The atmosphere has taken the fear out of going to the dentist for children. Some of you must have an axe to grind or something, the staff is wonderful and who cares about the house the dentist bought? Good for them. Jealous much?

Well my little one goes there and we love them. I went with oldest to Wilson and magically on a check up they told me it would be 360 bucks for sealants . Now they tell us this two months after his 17 th bday and majority of insurances won't pay past 16 and they know that. Yet he was just there 6 months prior. So you can't tell me if he needed them at one visit he needed them at the other visit . Rip off .... I've had little one at Teays pediatric for years and they are good . Dr Martin tends to be more patient . But I like them all

I am far from spoiled! I work my tail off to take care of my children. However I was taught by my parents not to have them until I could afford them. I don't expect the state to raise my children. I am a single mother and its only my income. So by no means am I rich. I just want what is best for my kids and they are by far the best for my kids. That is where they feel comfortable and I know that they have a very skilled staff.

I too am a single mom, I don't get child support and I don't live off of the state, I work my tail off too!! I give my kids everything they need and their health and happiness is my first priority. To say that someone doesn't care about their kids health because they can't afford what u say is "the best" is ignorant! I happen to think Wilson Martino is the best so that's where I take my kids. But u don't hear me telling people they don't care about their kids health cause they go elsewhere. Grow up sweetie.

You started insulting her for taking your kids to what you claim is an overpriced dentist.

I have no idea if her child's dentist is overpriced, read my posts i never said it was. She is being insulting not me. I was referring to the ridiculous statement she made about people not caring about their children's health.

Really me grow up! Sweetheart you were the one who did all the name calling. I didn't say that you personally did not value your kids health. I made a general statement. I never said that you personally didn't value your kids health. Why are you so defensive?

All I have to say is that Dr Martin is the best dentist....My daughter fell and almost broke her tooth completely off the day before Christmas. Dr Martin came in on a sunday along with his assistant to fix my daughters tooth so she wouldnt be embarrassed over the christmas holiday because of her broken tooth. It was his idea to do this, I didnt even ask when I called to ask what I should do, he just told me to come in the next morning and everything would be fine...i dont know many doctors these days who would do anything even close to that...

I've been in everyone of these offices stated in these posts. If you really want to know where your child is going to get the best care with the most up to date equipment best trained staff and doctors who go above and beyond to keep themselves and staff up to date in CE courses and specialty training. A place where you can go and see the same staff working there year after year because they have very little turn over which should tell you something. An office and doctors who have invested huge amounts of money and time to there communities by even opening and having the vision they do to open the offices they have. If you really want the best care and comforting environment for your child take them to huntington pediatric dentistry in huntington or there office ion teays vally road anywhere else and your selling yourself and your kids short.

You idiots are really surprised the doctor and a specialist at that has a million dollar house? Really? Are you that clueless? Here is a clue for you, doctors make a lot of money! Specialist's make even more! Yeah I want to take my kids to a doctor who lives in a double wide trailer???? You all should want your doctors to be successful with million dollar houses, probably means they are doing good work across a large volume of patients.

I do not have children so I'm not familiar with this place! But if everyone liked the same dentist there would only be a need for one! But for people to trash talk the dentist about buying his home is ridiculous! If u want a million dollar home switch professions! Spend all the money and hard work like he didand go to school and become a dr! Sounds to me like your jealous!
