Dr Bogged on Highway 321 near Captains Galley.

Stay away from Dr Cox. 98 percent of ppl that go to Cox miraculously need root canals when they do not. I'm surprised the ADA and NC Board hasn't investigated him for the mega root canals. I had one, believed what he told me and $3000 later, that tooth had to be surgically removed. The oral surgeon commented a few choice words when I told him what Cox said. Unless you have money to burn, stay away from Rob Ya Cox.

Dr Boggs is very reasonable and will file your insurance not make you pay first and try to get reimbursed from the insurance company later. If you do not have insurance, you may want to search online for a dental college, I think there is one in Gastonia. Most of the kids out of there do better jobs than someone tired of practicing 35 years or out to rip you off with a make believe root canal.

Good luck. Stay away from Canal Cox.

Yep! Dr. Yost in Hudson is cheap. Last time I was there he didn’t even have a receptionist. He also goes easy on the Novocain. I was not too happy with his work.

You heard wrong or you just made that up.
Dr. Hollar is a very good dentist, Overhead TV's in all the treatment rooms’ excellent staff. They even have an anesthesiologist on staff for sedation dentistry. I have the world’s worst gag reflex and they always work with me on making me comfortable. As for competitive pricing I don’t really know how his prices compare to others in the area.

NOT DR. PATEL!!! He did an unnecessary root canal on me, then ended up putting a bridge on the same tooth AFTER the root canal. Not only that, it's my FRONT teeth. AND not only that, he didn't match the color of my other teeth or even make it COME CLOSE to matching the size of my other teeth. I sued and was reimbursed for 3/4 of the costs.

Oh, no! I've never had a problem with him and actually really enjoyed being a patient of his (and the woman, whatever her name was)!
I'll keep those comments in mind for my next dental checkup.
CANAL COSTLY COX

Canal Cox......he got me $400 AND, I Throw up thinking about this, he sweats so much, his sweat dripped off his forehead right into my mouth stretched open for the infamous ROOT CANAL. I figure he does this to everyone trying to pay for his new building, divorce and equipment. He mentioned Root Canal on my father who had to correct him and say he just needed his DENTURES to fit better. It's all about money with CANAL COX.
Happy Patient

I disagree fully with the statement about Dr Cox. He is a wonderful Dentist. It's a shame uninformed people can make such slanderous untrue remarks on a public forum. I know many people that I have referred also to him that are 100% satisfied. People commenting on his personal life on here make me question their motives.

I have been a patient of Dr. Cox since 2007. He has always been thorough with me and my family. Whenever I have had dental work done, he has made the experience as pain free as possible. I can't complain at all.

Dr. Patel is a joke! It only took him 3 or 4 times to pass his Boards to practice "dentistry.".

Dr. Patel has a great practice in Lake Norman, as well. If he were that bad, he would have complaints and more negative feedback on legible sites.

I think Cocks makes up things to do, so he can charge you and arm and a leg. What a carpetbager. Hollar does good work, and has a hot assistant.
