I went to Dr.
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
's office for 1.5 years, choosing them
based on the convenient location near the Yale campus. I've never had any
serious dental problems, but a number of silver fillings in my back teeth since
I was a kid. At my first visit to Dr.
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
, I was told that one of my...More /> fillings needed replacement, and of course I had it done. This
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
to
sensitivity in that tooth that persisted for several months, which I don't
think is the fault of Dr.
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
. Though this was bothersome, there were no problems
attributable to the dentist yet. The next time I went in for my regular
cleaning, I was told that another filling had a gap ("margin") and
needed to be replaced. This time, I didn't want to simply agree, given the
discomfort of the previous year, and also my skepticism that two 30-year-old
fillings would suddenly go bad within one year of one another. So, I got a
second opinion from an independent dentist, who said that the filling in
question was fine. Now, there's no way to tell whether Dr.
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
has superior
powers to detect failing fillings or whether this is a scam to get insurance
money, but I'm certainly not going to this office again.

It had been so long since I'd been to the dentist that I had to return two weeks after my first visit for the hygienist to finish the cleaning. It was the best dentist experience I've ever had, and I've had a few! They numbed my
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
a bit with a topical medication to insure I felt as little discomfort as possible. The service was quick, all my questions were answered, and the entire staff is upbeat and friendly. Follow-up is amazing, as they use email and social media to keep in touch. I recently recommended Dr.
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
to a friend for a cap replacement, and she raved about the service too. Highly recommended!!

Dr
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
seems very thorough, and careful. Gentle technique. Hygenists, techs, and front office staff all excellent. A first rate office. Make sure your dental insurance is covered. My dental bill was more than I thought it would be because I have Delta Dental PPO which is covered but not at same rate as Delta Premier. Some dentist offices take both levels of Delta Dental. Dr
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
uses Delta Premier only. However, her office was very good about setting up a payment plan for me. Delta PPO covered some of my bill, but not all. So if cost is an issue, make sure which dental insurance you have. My fault, I didn't even check which plan I had. This is an excellent office and I would highly recommend it.

Overall, I thought the staff was friendly and good at what they did. My only issue was a prep seal that bothered me. At my next visit the staff tried to correct it.
The reason why I no longer go to Dr.
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
's office is Dr. Kelmen. At first, I just thought that my appointments lasted longer than necessary because he told a lot of stories. However, on my last visit, he made a lot of political comments (it was President's Day) that eventually turned a little racial. I don't go to the dentist for a political conversation so I will go elsewhere.

I had been for cleanings and they were all very nice. Dr
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
removed 2 of my
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
teeth. The experience from start to finish was positive. Dr
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
numbs topically before he gives the Novocain so the shots are pretty painless. He checks frequently to make sure the pain meds are working so that you experience no discomfort. I also had the gas to help
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
the pain. All of the staff were very nice and professional. I went to Dr
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
based on recommendation from my daughter - she had procedure done by him to remove permanent retainers and raved about how great he was. And she was right. Dr
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
explains everything, makes sure you understand, and tells you during the entire process what he is doing. Highly recommend Dr
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
and the staff at

From the moment I arrived in the SmileBoston office in
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
,
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
I felt comfortable and well received. The front office staff is friendly and welcoming. I waited about 5 minutes or less for my appointment with Dr.
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
.
The first and subsequent appointments with Dr.
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
are amazing. He is an extremely caring and personable dentist, who works hard to make his patients happy. His knowledge base is outstanding and his work is perfection. He removed poorly done bonding that another dentist had put on a front tooth. The result was total perfection, which I never thought could happen.
Overall, my experience with all of the staff and Dr.
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
is the best I have received in my lifetime! I highly, without reservation, recommend SmileBoston in
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
. The service is outstanding from routine care cleanings, to complicated restorations. I always leave with a perfect smile.

I initially had a good experience at Dr.
Sitka Health Care Provider Name Locked
's practice. But over the course of seeing him for two years there have been enough negative things that have happened to cause me to seek another dentist. I had three crowns replaced at one time(!). He also found that the bone around one of my teeth had deteriorated and it would need to be replaced. I was taken aback that so much work would need to be done. I checked with his billing specialist to find out how much my portion of all this (after my dental insurance had paid) would cost. Incredibly, she replied that it would cost "six thousand dollars". I was understandably stunned. She then informed me that she was "just kidding". I thought this was extremely inappropriate, and I still have difficulty understanding why a person in a supposedly professional position would do that to a customer/patient.

Getting this work involved multiple visits, which I understood. However, his practice refuses to make more than one or two appointments at a time for a patient. So after one step had finished, I had to make a brand-new appointment. There was always a delay involved because he keeps himself busy in what I am sure must be a very lucrative practice. Instead of coming back to see him in four weeks, I couldn't get an appointment until eight weeks from the last. This entire course of treatment ended up taking about five months when it should have taken more like three, in my opinion. If a process is going to take five visits, then five appointments should be scheduled at the outset. To me, that's a no-brainer.
When I asked him about this, he claimed that he was not aware of his office's scheduling practice. I told him that I found that hard to believe, given that it is his practice. To my surprise, he became defensive and asked me if I was accusing him of being a liar!
I also told two people that I wanted the crown to be gold rather than porcelain. Remarkably, a porcelain crown was ordered. A gold crown had to be reordered which caused additional delay with the work.
Aside from these issues, there was another problem. In my opinion, he does not pay as much attention to detail when he works on teeth as I think he should. This may be because he keeps himself so busy.
I felt like his office inundated me with phone calls and text message reminders of appointments. Some people might appreciate that, but I felt like I was being harassed by a marketing machine. He continues to try to get more and more patients, but he is too busy to see them in a timely fashion.

is a
friendly guy, but that does not make up for all of these other problems.

This is a very professional practice and I think the work done is excellent. I have been going to this practice for years and have never met anyone that has not been friendly and reassuring. I have a terrible fear of dental procedures from some horrible experiences many years ago. I still don't like having to have work done in my mouth but when I have to this is the office I want to have it done at. The office is immaculately clean which is a must in my opinion. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. Many of the staff have been with this practice as long as I have been going there which tells me it is a nice place for them to be as well which is reflected in their positive attitude.

If I have any suggestion to help frightened patients like myself it would be to not talk about things you plan on doing quietly behind me. What you are discussing about instruments and ways to do things with each other are frightening to me. I know you need to discuss these things but a quick reassurance and explanation to me would be helpful. This is not a complaint because I know you do your best to try to make me feel comfortable but I am such a ,"chicken", that I have trouble relaxing trying to hear what is next. Thank you for understanding my fears and always striving to make the dental experiences at your office the best possible.
