This woman is horrible with small children. She got increasingly agitated when my daughter - a scared 4 year old - cried in the chair and then refused to give my child a "present," as PROMISED, when the exam was over until she said, "Yes, please, I would like a present.." She even went so far as to say, "I'm going to count to 3. If you want a present say Yes, please. 1...2..." I told her that that was quite enough. We left in a hurry and I had to explain to my very upset daughter why she didn't get a present.

I am not sure what's with this woman's need to exert control over small children, but a friend of mine had warned me that she had done something similar to her 3 year old. Her daughter wouldn't open her mouth at all and Dr. Coffey flat out refused to give her a prize at the end. Someone needs to explain to her that it's about so much more than her cheap little "presents." I don't know how I'm going to get my daughter to another dentist appointment after that experience.

This dentist has okay work, but is very unpredictable and moody and can be very rude to her patients. I will no longer trust her with my children, as that is not an example I want for them. There are many other dentists out there who provide excellent dental work while being pleasant to their patients. I hope I can avoid someone else having to go through the unpleasant experience that we had.

Like these other mothers, I too have had not one but two horrible experiences with this dentist. Not only was she rude and moody to my two small children, she was extremely rude to me. I gave her the benefit of the doubt which is why we returned for a second visit a year later. My instinct about her was correct the first time. She told me my daughter had four surface cavities in between her back molars. I was drilled as to what type of food habits she had. When I told her that we eat several small meals, I got the lecture of a century. After I left the office, I realized she never even showed me or my daughter where these four cavities were in her mouth. When I called back the next day to find out more about the xrays, she told me she didn't bother with showing me because "the average person can't see a cavity on an xray". Who talks to their customers like that?? We will never return there and I don't even mind paying more to go somewhere else. Lesson learned.

Jeri Coffey has taken care of all of my children's teeth and my grandchildren for 30+ years...I really don't know what the above reviewers are thinking. She is the best...the most kind-hearted and the most patient.
