This was by far the WORST dental experience I've ever had. I thought it would be simple. After all, I knew I had some work that needed to be done.

First impressions from the team were friendly and helpful. They were obviously just desperate for patients.

Once I was in the chair, I was basically tortured with scare tactics of worst-case scenarios if I didn't fork over so much money for their toothpaste, mouthwash, and the electric toothbrush that they get $$$ from selling to patients. Not to mention the months of dental care and elaborate plans Dr. Minocha had to fix my mouth.

I had a few cavities, it had been a few years. She made it seem like my teeth were going to fall out. Within moments, if I didn't go use her special products immediately.

I got a second opinion. Thank goodness my teeth aren't going to fall out. I don't have full-blown Periodontal Disease like she said. The new dentist said my gums are completely healthy-no bleeding whatsoever when he did his exam. No wonder I felt ZERO discomfort during Minocha's exam (physically, that is).

Also, she told me that I grind my teeth. I don't know what that looks like, but the new dentist says I don't have that problem. Apparently I don't need to shell out $300 for a mouth guard; I just have a little bit of wear and tear from having braces as a kid. I also don't need all new fillings from all of my previous work.

What this place does is unethical. It's immoral. I don't know if I'm more disgusted that I left partially terrified that I'd be 25 and in need of dentures for a lifetime or that I'd just wasted about $300 for their stupid 'insurance' and 'services.'

Go anywhere else. Flag down the next moving vehicle that passes you. The driver will likely be more honest, pleasant, and helpful with dental recommendations.

Plus, the aftermath is not worth it. In comparison to the 20 minutes it took to set up my first appointment, it's been 3 days and I'm still having to play tug o' war to get my dental records. All-in-all, a huge waste of time and a great disappointment.
