Dentistry reviews in Palm Springs

    Kheirkhahi-Love, Dr. Ellie
    Was referred by my regular dentist for a deep scaling below the gum line and one extraction.  She reviewed my dental condition, made recommendations and performed the extraction and deep scaling on left ½ of my mouth. I am returning this month 
    to have the deep scaling on the right half.
    My dental health has improved remarkably since this scaling and I look forward to having the right side done.
     This dentist is highly trained with advanced degrees from Loma Linda University's Dental School and Harvard University Dental School. She is the top periodontist in my area and teaches advanced dental techniques at Loma Linda Dental School.

    Dr.James Dayton
    If I need to go back, I will go back and see him. He said it wasn't necessary to do anything at the time. I thought it was good. The availability is difficult because it is only every two or three weeks that he is here. Bedside manner is very good. The effectiveness of treatment is yet to be seen because it was just two days ago. There was no charge and so I have no opinion on billing and administration. I thought he was honest and not trying to sell unnecessary services. Since he didn't do anything, I don't have too much of an opinion to give but what I saw, I liked.

    Shepherd, Dr. J. Scott

    I have been a patient for several years.  It is a great practice, EXPENSIVE, however.  They no longer take my dental plan.

    I was Dr. Shepherd's patient until he no longer took my dental plan.  I moved over to

    Dr. Enright in the same office.  Now, she no longer takes my dental plan, so I am

    searching for a new dentist.

    Western Dental Services
    A REALLY BAD EXPERIENCE overall. Waited hours in the office for our first appointment. Saw dentist for approximately 10 min. to diagnose; that 2 teeth needed to be removed (no kidding, that why we scheduled the appointment). Now we needed to make a new appointment for the ORAL SURGEON, who is ONLY AVAILABLE ONE DAY A MONTH. If you are in real pain, good luck! This office also wanted PRE-PAYMENT for the surgery, which was scheduled two weeks out. We declined to pre-pay.
    Waited two weeks; arrived at offices for surgery. Due to being short staffed (office manager?s excuse). The physician?s approval for surgery was not received (my father is 93 with Alzheimer?s) nor were we called and told to reschedule. My father already had to endure two weeks of pain and trouble eating. Now, the next appointment would be in one month!
    During the following week, we received a PAST DUE invoice for the surgery. Call to have situation resolved (I thought!). We?re still
    receiving automated phone calls requesting our past due payment for services that were not rendered.
    Canceled next appointment and went to another dentist. 
    Update: July 31, 2014.
    It?s been 10 days since canceled surgery. Received second dunning notice, now with a $25 late fee! Also getting daily recorded phone calls on my cell phone ?Western Dental has an important message for me, please call? regarding payment and call to my home phone about rescheduling of next appointment for recommended services. Called Western Dental?s offices, for the third time, to stop letters and calls. Let?s hope it works

    LeMay, Dr. Bruno
    He got too over-priced and wanted to do too many things that I did not think that I needed. Bobby is the office manager that checks me out and she can be very honorary. He is a very good dentist but when I sign out and pay my bill, he puts toothpaste in there and charges me $15. He wanted me to use it as it is supposed to be good but I did not find any difference. I was with him when he started out and he was the best dentist and everybody liked him then he built his big new office building and everything has changed. Most people I talk to won't go back to him.

    Lake, Dr. John H.
    I made an appointment with Dr. Robert Lake and was seen quickly.
    This practice opens early in the morning, so I was able to make an appointment early (7 am?) and still get to work on time.
    Dr. Lake was very pleasant and professional. He did not see a reason for any crown, even though he checked the xrays I had sent from the previous doctor and also took some more at my request. He gave me sensitivity toothpaste, which has helped a lot. He had up-to-date equipment and, from what he said, I could tell that he was up-to-date on what research has shown tends to work or not work. At the same time, he was able to explain things in words I could understand.
    I came back in August for a tooth cleaning and the person was extremely thorough. She squirted some kind of colored liquid to show me what spots I was missing when I brushed my teeth. She explained things about my gums no one had ever explained to me before, even when I had periodontal surgery many years before.
    I don't recall the cost of either visit, but my insurance covered most, if not all, and whatever was my responsibility must have been reasonable, because I would have remembered if it were otherwise.

    Studio Dentistry - Rob Strain DDS
    After checking for potential damage via x-ray, a thorough exam and prepping my gum, I was very happy to have my older, intact crown cemented back in place which saved me time and money.
    Dr. Strain has been my general dentist about two years now and I really appreciate his meticulous attention to detail and the fact that he is more than up-to-date in all aspects of his dental practice. He is a very knowledgeable, competent and caring dentist. I have had at least two cavities repaired in the past two years and I am happy to report that his novocaine injections were totally painless; really important to me! I also have my teeth cleaned every 5-6 months by Jennifer, the dential hygenist, who is an excellent and thorough but gentle practitioner and wonderful person. I had a teeth whitening procedure last year in the office with the Zoom machine which was very convenient, fast, affordable, and effective. The office staff from the front desk to the dentist are all very welcoming and personable. I give them all an A+ and recommend this dentist and his staff without any hesitation. Dr. Strain also does cosmetic dentistry and based upon the photos in his office (which he takes), the results are fantastic for people of all ages. He is an artist in cosmetic dentistry and a wonderful family dentist too.

    LeMay, Dr. Bruno
    Regina is, hands down, the most knowledgeable and helpful hygienist ever. She is passionate about what she does and knows all about the latest floss, techniques, and approaches to minimize tartar and plaque. Last year I discovered I had the onset of periodontal disease-- which is very common for someone in their early 50's (saliva changes, aging process, etc.). I went in for a and quot;heavy cleanand quot; along the gum line. It helped for a few months and then I was getting high numbers (5's and 6's for gaps between my teeth). Regina suggested I get a customized mouth guard and use proxigel (hydrogen peroxide) daily to keep my mouth clean and allow gum tissue to grow back. In addition, she gave me a thicker floss to maximize the effect of flossing. It is working!
    I find the whole staff to be wonderful. The office is very clean.....they have the latest equipment.....very high tech and competent. Overall, I am very, very pleased.

    We have always been happy with his competency and service. We recommend him. He is less expensive than our previous dentist in Beverly Hills but more expensive than the cut rate dentist that advertise.

    On my last visit, Regina discovered a variety of and quot;pocketsand quot; forming in and around my gums. The numbers were not good. Fives and sixes were the norm for spacing between my teeth and gums. This is, evidently, a natural progression as we age. She thoroughly cleaned my gums and then gave me a medication and hydrogen peroxide treatment I can place in a custom made mouthguard. The results have been wonderful. I now have all threes and fours as my counts. My mouth feels very clean and my smile is crystal bright.
