    Shepherd, Dr. David J.
    I just came from having my teeth cleaned at Dr. Shepherd's office. Everyone there is wonderful. The receptionist, Brenda, is professional and efficient. Angie, my hygienist, is absolutely fantastic. I have always felt that half of going to the dentist is how well your teeth are cleaned. Angie is not only an expert at cleaning teeth, but she is very knowledgeable about how oral health affects the entire body. Every time I visit, she educates me about gum disease; how food, drink, and medications can affect tooth and gum health, and the importance of proper maintenance for the best oral health. She provides gentle dental care. She is also vigilant. She saw an area of concern on one of my X-rays and showed it to Dr. Shepherd. Dr. Shepherd investigated the problem and told me what needs to be done and why. I need a 30 year old crown replaced before it turns into a serious, expensive problem. He explained things in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. Everyone in this office is so pleasant, and their schedule runs like clockwork. You have an 11:30 appointment, you're in the chair at 11:30. I appreciate that. I used to dislike going to the dentist, until I found Dr. Shepherd. I recommend him for any type of dental work. He has already replaced for me two 30 year old crowns that were in bad shape. He is cheerful and has a good sense of humor. He puts me at ease so that I'm not nervous about any procedures. For a scaredy-cat like me, that's an enormous benefit.

    Vest, Dr. Richard N
    The surgeries and subsequent recovery after each one were painless. Dr. Vest is very skilled and I would recommend him to anyone needing the services he provides.

    Thomas P Cosgrove DMD, PC
    I found dr. Cosgrove on angies list. He had great reviews and he is close to my work. I originally went there because I was in extreme pain. He couldn't find the cause and sent me to a periodontist. The second doctor couldn't dins anything wrong either. Dr. Cosgrove called me that night to check up on me, which I have never seen any other dentist to do! The pain got better but two days later it started again. It was Christmas Eve and dr, Cosgrove did not doubt a moment in taking me to check the tooth again. He finally found that it was a crack and he put a temporary crown. He called me on Xmas day to make sure I was better! I went back in January for my permanent crown. He explain that sometimes that is all the tooth needs to be better and sometimes it doesn't work. I got pain again on the same tooth so I went back and this time he had to perform a root canal. The procedure was flawless! I used to be very scared of dentist and I would take my time going to one. Not anymore, everything he did was painless. He will be my dentist for as long as I live in Birmingham!

    Alabaster Dental Care
    Admittedly, no one is a fan of going to the dentist, but my experiences at Alabaster Dental Care has made it as easy and painless as it possibly can be! They've kept me coming back for years. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They remember me every time, and greet me with a smile. The dental hygienists are thorough and make you feel very comfortable. And Dr. Horn is the best! He will do everything he can to ensure your smile lasts and shines. At the end of the visit, they work with you and your insurance company to ensure easy payment. They are great with kids, adults, seniors, everybody! Anytime I mention Dr. Horn at Alabaster Dental Care, everyone says, "Oh, he's the best!" You'll think so, too!

    Barnes, Dr. Brian
    I moved to Birmingham recently and got a broken molar in a tooth with an old filing. Dr. Barnes worked me into his schedule and saw me the next day. His staff was incredible nice and he takes the time for pain medication to work before doing procedures. The new crown has worked well and I had NO pain during the procedures and afterwards. Dr. Barnes and his staff went out of their way to insure I was comfortable and being served well. He asked repeatedly are you all right? Is the area numb? Pease stop me if you have any unpleasant sensation. The office and examine areas are very new and the equipment is first rate. A truly remarkable experience. I use him for all my dentistry now

    Harold Z Hirsch DDS
    She recently did two dental implants for me. About four months ago she extracted two failed root canal teeth, #18 and #20. I required an alveolar ridge augmentation because of bone loss due to abscesses that had formed around the failed root canals. This involved cadaver bone grafts and was moderately painful for a few days post-op. So far the actual implants have been less painful. I am not completely finished with this odyssey. In two weeks I will return for suture removal. In about four months when the implants have integrated into my jawbone, I will return for exposure of the implants and placement of the posts for attachment of my prosthetic teeth. Then I will return to my primary dentist for an impression and eventual prosthetic teeth attachment.
