Dr Brent McDaniel is an exceptionally good dentist! He goes out of his way to make his patients feel comfortable and to make the dental visits enjoyable. He is very conscientious and thorough .Dr McDaniel is more concerned about the pain than the bill when it comes to his patients. He works with his patients to help them make informed choices about their needed care. He has exceptional manual dexterity, the ability to make his patients feel they are well-cared for, a humorous spirit, the ability to communicate openly, good spatial orientation, excellent hand-eye coordination, and a high level of diagnostic ability. I have recommended him to friends, family and coworkers, and he has a solid track record of successful relationships with all the patients I have sent to him.

I like Dr. Arnett. I've been to several different dentists, none of which in my opinion did very good work. Dr. Arnett's fillings have never fell out.

DITTO!

I call him by his first name even. Brent is the best dentist I ever had, and everything the poster above said is true. BUT- I hate to break the news to Morehead folk that the dentist may be moving away. In the paper today was an avertisment by another dentist (I think from Lexington) that claims to be taking over the business. My entire family seen McDaniel so much we all call him "Brent" (his first name) and none of us were told of any plans of his practice moving. I sure hope he stays in this area, but in seeing he does not except medicaid nor medicare, he is missing out on the bulk of the business here. However he always seem to say fairly busy with cash paying customers and those with dental insurance.

In Brent McDaniel DDS relocates anywhere near Morehead and somebody here knows where it is can I ask you please post it here? He is more than a simple dentist to my family, indeed he has became a friend of the family and we hate to see him go and not even get a chance to say good bye.

This Dentist (Brent McDaniel) even spotted on X-ray of my mouth where another dentist, who shall remain nameless, had done a half-ass job on a root canal for me-

Not only did this OTHER previous dentist (Not Mr McDaniel- he was the good dentist that discovered the screw up on X-ray and showed me!!) charge me more $$ than I was first told, but latter the tooth got infected and had to be removed due to a nasty painful infection- All because the previous dentist did a half-ass root canal and stopped drilling/filing about 2/3 the way down and left 1/3 of the live nerve in tact!!

The previous Dentist used to be located NEAR Cave Run clinic somewhere. I will leave it to our Morehead friends to guess who the dentist was as I do not wish to be sued for telling the truth. Brent McDaniel spotted the botched root canal on an X-ray and showed me- about 6 months latter this tooth became badly infected with lots of pain and swelling, all because another local dentist was too lazy to kill the entire nerve in my root canal and he charged me more than we agreed too.

I have to be careful with my words here, I do not wish to be sued for sharing the truth. All I feel safe saying in public is that I understood a certain price for a root canal, had to put 1/2 $$ down for the crown, and I had a very bad outcome about one year latter from what appeared to of been a botched root canal that did not have the complete live nerve removed, at least another dentist advised me of this and his X-ray of my mouth clearly reflected his point of view, it was easy to spot and he still retains my records and I have a copy too.

With the dentist at issue here: The final cost of the same root-canal/crown was hundreds of $$ more than I had understood, but I trusted this dentist at that time and thought I must of misunderstood him the first time. When my future Dentist took care of the same tooth latter it had became badly infected, and it appeared to of been because about 1/3 of the live nerve was left in the bottom of my tooth, even after paying well over $1,000 for the complete root-canal and crown. It really angers one to pay so much money only to lose the tooth a year latter due to the live nerve getting infected and another dentist having to be paid even more $$ to remedy the mistake of the original dentist at issue here-

This dentist is very nice and pleasant, but I will never go to him again after the last root canal did he seemed to of screwed up so badly for me, while charging me more $$ than I first understood the full price to be, and it is nothing personal. He is a VERY nice guy, but I have my reasons to avoid seeing him as a dentist ever again, and I do forgive people. Also he works mostly by himself with other responsibilities done by other family members, all whom are very friendly.

This dentist is good at pulling teeth at a very inexpensive price though. Just do not have anything fancier than a filling or extraction done, and always confirm your price to the end. Let him think you are POOR even if you are wealthy, that is if you are a cash paying customer.. He is not all bad. All humans make mistakes. But some mistakes can cause patients a lot of agony and make their billfolds much lighter. If you see this dentist remember he is best suited for extractions and filling cavities, nothing more except maybe a cleaning. I was a patient of his for a few years, but no longer. I did enjoy his sense of humor, but the business of good health is a very important thing not to be taken lightly.
