AVOID THIS GUY!! This dentist is the worst I have ever experienced. He totally screwed up the crown he insisted I get on one of my bottom teeth. He ground the top surface down so much that it doesn't touch the top tooth. And he laughed at me when I mentioned this to him. I went to two other dentists for second opinions and they agreed that too much had been ground off the top of the crown.

would not do anything about his mistake, refusing to even admit he made a mistake. Not that I would ever let this guy near my teeth again. And, he was terrible with making his patients wait while he worked on other patients. On the day he put the crown on, he had me waiting in a chair for 4 and a half hours! He really doesn't care about his patients health or time and the laughing was the last straw. He is very disrespectful and a terrible dentist.

He was very friendly and explained in detail the process. He pulls the tooth first then you wait approx. 3 months and he does the first stage of the implant. I had mentioned that I looked up him and the practice on Angie's list. He was not aware that the practice or him was rated. I waited approx. 10 minutes and was called in and talked to someone about the costs associated with each step. She was very nice and give me a list of the costs that I would incur. I scheduled my appointment to get my tooth pulled.

I found him to be extremely likeable. He explains things well and seems knowledgeable. Very friendly and doesn't rush you. His hygienist the same. VERY friendly and answers questions honestly and thoughtfully, even when asked by my young daughter. The problem was at check-out. The lady was rude -- didn't smile and didn't

or introduce herself. Chided me for not telling them I was a "Clipper Coupon Special" when scheduling. I felt like a welfare patient asking for a hand-out. She actually huffed. Then, she seemed very put-out when I requested a copy of xrays -- stated she really should be charging me for them, she needs more notice, etc. She actually looked irritated with me. She finally handed me a paper photocopy of xrays, reluctantly. As for his composite filling estimate prices, they were a little high, but I would have paid them, had it not been for my substandard experience with the office staff. I am a RN -- wouldn't treat a patient in that manner EVER.

If you are looking for a top professional in his field with the most gentle touch of any dentist or oral surgeon I have been to, I highly recommend Dr.
Altoona Oral Surgeons Provider Name Locked
. He did two implants for me two years ago and have just completed two more for me. He is kind, careful, gentle, and patient. He doesn't rush his procedures, he makes sure the implant heals properly before referring you back to your dentist to complete the crown procedure. He called me the evening after each procedure to check up on me and make sure I was doing ok. In addition, the staff couldn't be friendlier or more accommodating. The office is comfortable and welcoming but most importantly, extremely clean and neat. I've provided the estimated cost of the procedure, but do not go by that... Every procedure is different. I had two extractions, two bone grafts, two implants and I don't even remember what else. But they will itemize everything for you ( I just don't remember exactly). And you get what you pay for :)

I absolutely love Dr.
Altoona Oral Surgeons Provider Name Locked
senior and Junior. I would recommend them to anyone who is sick of having sub-par dental work done. The issue I have is with the front counter receptionist who refuses to address the fact that I am not receiving statements. Everytime I go they tell me at the window that I own on my account and I tell them "really?!" I never got a statement. Then come to find out they sent my account to collections who by the way never contacted me so I KNOW they are not processing my information and billing correctly. This has caused me to stop going to see them. I don't know what else to do except hope to see Dr B in Giant or something and talk to him.

He started with the hole in my upper palate and from that designed an obdurator that fit so well that I am usually not aware that the obdurator is in place. Fitting the obdurator was painless and he did the design and most of the actual fabrication. The obdurator is so well designed that after initial adjustments, it fit perfectly and I have not had to have any adjustments made. The entire experience was amazing. His staff is highly competent and everyone in at the office is extremely friendly and professional. In addition they provide regular dental service, which is also excellent.

and his staff are phenomenal! Everyone is very professional and very friendly - which makes even the most nervous patient feel like they are part of his dental office family... my son actually enjoys going to his appointments! Dr.
Altoona Oral Surgeons Provider Name Locked
takes time to go over all specifics for his orthodontic plan at the 1st consultation visit and he is very reasonably priced. We have had about 4 visits so far, and we are very pleased with outcomes to this point... just as expected and on-track with plan.
