's practice IS outstanding.
I have had numerous Prosthodontists work on me over the years, and that kind of work is like night and day. I have had 3 that were terrible, and 3 that were great, and Dr.
...more is in a class by himself.
His staff communicates extremely well, and that is from the front office, to billing, to his technical support staff.
He uses the very best material, and he is personally and professionally meticulous.
If anyone is currently getting Caps and or Bridges, an acid test is to determine the quality of the support staff, and how many times you need to return to get a procedure done, it should be MINIMAL.

"He is a Prosthodontist, which means one of his specialties is dentures. Over the years, I have had a lot of crown work done & some needed replacing. In the course of 1 year, two of my front teeth had come out, both were crowns. I don't have the ...more money to start doing implants, so my only option was dentures. I went into see Dr
, it was suppose to be a free consult in his office. He kept pushing implants & I kept telling him I couldn't afford that, I wanted dentures! He said, " come out here, let's do x-
& see what we are working with". Once he got an x-
& got me into the exam chair, it went from free consult to $235. ! I kept telling him I wanted dentures & asked him how much. He proceeds to tell me dentures would cost from $20000. -$30000.!! Not $2000-$3000 but 20000 -30000. I about slid out of his chair, I couldn't get out of there fast enough. When I checked out & was handed the bill, I about had a coronary. When I told the lady I thought it was a free consult, she said when I got the x-
& got into exam chair, it became an appointment. I paid it & came home & spent the next two weeks, stewing over it. I finally called & told the receptionist I was giving them a heads up because I was going to go on Angie'sList & write a review. I then told her I wanted my money back. She said she would relay the message to Dr
& get back with me. He agreed to send me a check & I was going to let it go & not do any kind of a report, but I was feeling guilty for not reporting him. I wonder how many times he has put the price of dentures so high, that patients are pressured into getting implants. I would love to have done that, but there was no way I could afford it!! I would not recommend this dentist for anything!! "

Dentures replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue, but occasionally require replacement. Getting affordable dentures means knowing what you need, what's comfortable, and finding the right denturist or prosthodontist.
Depending on the condition of your jaw, teeth and gums, a dental implant procedure can take as little as a few weeks or as long as nine months as your dentist, oral surgeon and prosthodontist restore your smile.
Crowns are considered a common dental procedure. Gathering information about this treatment option prior to visiting a dentist may empower a consumer to make the best decision for their own oral health.

"I have been to both the East Longmeadow, and Northampton offices of
. Both are modern, engaging, pristine spaces, staffed with professional, highly competent staff, who are friendly, charming, and remember me no matter how long it's been since my last appointment. I have never been kept waiting for very long, and have ...more been seen quickly when necessary.
There are never any surprises when you enter treatment at
. After your evaluation appointment, at which time Dr.
or the dentist you are seeing, explains to you what you need, you will sit down with a staff person and receive a full treatment plan, including all estimated costs. The cost has rarely exceeded the estimate, and in the one case that it did, I was informed immediately of the extra needs and the reasons for them.
Over the years, I have had a lot of work done at
, and I say from experience that Dr.
and his associates are masters at their profession. The treatment is gentle, aware, and technically forward. The result: gorgeous!
One of the most important things I can say about
is what happened in the one instance that I was not really pleased with a result. Dr.
called me back in, remade my crowns, at a great discount, and made me very happy.
Both my husband,
and I are patients at
, and neither of us would seek care anywhere else.
I can't really evaluate how Dr.
compare in cost to other professionals who do the same thing. When I'm building a deck, I shop around for price. When it comes to health, and something as important as my teeth, I shop for professionalism, mastery and results, as well as how well I'm treated. In those areas,
"This is the best dental service I've ever had. Dr.
is extremely skilled and accommodating. Their office has made time for me several times when an emergency has arisen but I have never been made to feel rushed. Just the opposite.
After my evaluation, we scheduled an appointment to review their proposed treatment plan. ...more I lost several teeth in an auto accident 50 years ago and have had a good deal of dental work since then, so I knew there was more work that was needed. I have had all of the work that was suggested and have been extremely pleased with the results.
I can't say enough positive things about this office and the people that work there."
