    Davis Dental Center
    New to town and needed to find a new provider.  Called several before locating this practice and they accepted a new patient.  Was able to provide a quick appointmetn date, nice staff, and prompt service.

    Hurm, Dr. James A.
    The office staff is wonderfully nice and accomodating. The dental hygienist was distant and had an 'elite' or 'uppity' attitude. The dentist was horrible. He was obviously money grabbing for more procedures for profit. My teeth have always been fine; and I have a knowledge about the field; he suggested major dental surgery for a non-problem. Very disappointing in his lack of honesty with the patient and his dubious recommendations.

    The procedure went as explained. The hygienist was excellent. The procedure involved cleaning teeth below the gum line, which based on past experience can be very uncomfortable--but not this time. In addition, they are well connected with the University of louisville Dental School. This is a big plus because they will refer you rather than rip you off by performing a procedure that they are not experienced with as had happened to us with another dental office that shall remain nameless.

    Cummins, Dr. Sara S.
    We are very happy with her. She is very good, very nice, extremely well trained, she is very detailed, and she is a perfectionist, plus she has a very nice personality. She is the first female dentist that I have used, an she is great. Their dental hygienist Nina is wonderful. Her staff is very good, very friendly, very knowledgeable, they take you on time, and it is a very good dental office. I recommend them. Dentists are all expensive. The office is clean and nice.

    Barrett, Dr. Charles B.
    I had a very positive experience with Dr. Barrett. His office is modern and clean, his staff super friendly, and he always makes you feel comfortable and fully informed. I'm always a little apprehensive about seeing the dentist because I have sensitive areas around my gum line. I like that Dr. Barrett's staff always asks me if I have been feeling any discomfort or sensitivity before they begin their checkup/cleaning. They keep really good records so they are able to see any changes in your mouth since your last visit. The hygienist performed my cleaning gently and thoroughly. She did a thorough check of my gums health and even checked my mouth for signs of mouth cancer. Dr. Barrett was very friendly and gave my mouth a thorough check before I was on my way.
    Overall: Friendly, thorough and efficient.

    As always my appointment went well. I was there for my semi annual cleaning and check up. I didn't have to wait long, as soon as I was brought back the dental hygienist began cleaning my teeth, and when she was finished Dr. Cooper came to take a look. Fortunately I didn't have any cavities and I was in and out in about 30 minutes!

    Receveur, Dr. Ronald L.
    Upon arriving at the office, I was somewhat surprised to see simply a dentist office. Nowhere on their sign or in the office did I see anything even mentioning sleep apnea, much less a "Sleep Center". I didn't think about this too much at the time but would later. I got right in to see a doctor besides Dr Receveur and she began asking questions and looking at the questionairre I had filled out. After some simple measurements and examination she indicated I had several factors that indicated I had the liklihood of having sleep apnea. The next step was to have a sleep test to record various data while I was sleeping to determine if I had apnea and how severe.
    This is where things got weird. They didn't have the testing equipment at the "sleep center" but used an outside company that would mail the equipment to my home, I take the 2-day test and mail it back to them, they interpret the results and send the report to the doctor and they call me in for review. That seemed a little convoluted but the cost was reasonable ($350) and I wanted to have a diagnosis and not have to go to a lab so I signed up for the test.
    Once I had done that, another staff person from the front desk comes in and asks me if I want to set up financing for the dental appliance to treat my sleep apnea! I asked how much it cost and she said $3500! I said I think I'll wait to see how the test goes first. I was shocked that they would try to get me to commit to a treatment when a diagnosis hadn't even been made yet. Then, the person who examined me comes in with a form and tells me that insurance companies want them to try using a cpap machine first for treating sleep apnea but that I felt I couldn't tolerate using that machine and preferred to use the dental appliance, "right?". I said I guess so and she fills out the form and has me sign it.
    After getting back home, I got a call from the company doing the sleep test, Sleep Optima, who wanted some information so they could send out the testing equipment. I gave them the info and went looking at their web site. They seemed legit but seemed geared toward dentists who wanted to offer sleep apnea treatment.
    One thing caught my attention from their website. This was taken directly from their site "Dental sleep medicine provides higher profits. The average out of pocket cost for an oral appliance can range from $150-$650. We assist in selecting the appropriate dental appliance and fee structure based on geographic, and patient demographics. Our dentists typically charge between $1,000-$5,000 for an appliance, providing for very favorable profit margins."
    Are you kidding me?!? This thing costs no more than $650 and they want $3500! The "sleep center" doesn't even make the appliance.
    This was the final straw. I decided I would not be going back to this office. The picture was finally becoming clear to me. The fact that they wanted me to set up financing before I was even diagnosed, the form they had me sign indicating I didn't want a cpap machine, the lack of their own testing equipment and the outrageous cost all led me to believe that this was just simply a machine for getting someone to shell out big bucks for a dental appliance with minimal investment. I never even saw Dr Receveur personally and would be surprised if they offer any other treatments besides this dental appliance.
    I did receive the test results from sleep optima which appears very comprehensive but I will be taking the report elsewhere for treatment.
    Don't waste your time if you want to have treatment options. See a pulmonologist or someone who can give you some real options and cares about the patient, not just money.

    Springhurst Family & Cosmetic Dentistry
    I used to go to a family dentist but my husband preferred that I go to a dentist that embraced technology and patient comfort and just better medicine for dentistry and that is how I found Dr. Shorten. They use laser dentistry in almost everything they do. Rather than use a scalpel or cotton to pull your gum tissue away when they want to get to your tooth, fill a cavity or fill a crown, they use a laser. That laser takes away the pain. It often eliminates the need for anesthetic. It is antibacterial and they are even looking into cleaning teeth prior to procedures for people who have compromised situations. They can do about 22 procedures that old fashioned dentistry would use some form of blade or drill. They also have ceramic restorations that is versus using metal in your mouth. It is ceramic, it last as long as gold and it looks very attractive. He just uses nice procedures and he is interested new researched and proven methods on doing dentistry. He goes two weeks each year to do dentistry in countries where they don't have any dental medicine. He is truly wonderful. The billing gets kind of confusing with their front desk woman. It just seems like I will have paid the remaining bill which is beyond the insurance and then they still have it and I will get an overdue deal. It hasn't happened constantly or anything but the front desk girl isn't quite as good as the rest of the office.

    Zangari, Dr. Anthony M.
    Dr. Zangarihas been our family dentist for twenty years. When our son, who had been using another dentist, needed services recently, we referred him to Dr. Z. His assessment treatment course saved my son humdreds of $$ and a lot of pain and inconvenience.Tony is the best!

    The Center for Advanced Dentistry
    This was a very positive experience for me, and I'm not crazy about going to the dentist! As I came into the office, I was greeted warmly, and I only had a short wait to see Dr. Shariff. Dr. Shariff uses the most up-to-date technology and took the time to record and describe the condition of every tooth in my mouth as he showed the digital images on the screen above the chair. We discussed my tooth sensitivity and TMJ issues, and he made helpful recommendations for me to consider. I had been advised by a previous dentist to have filling(s) replaced, but there was no mention of this by Dr. Shariff (I had suspected that it wasn't necessary). Dr. Shariff was very thorough, gentle, and patient. He and his assistant made an extra effort to keep me comfortable by avoiding spraying cold water directly on my sensitive upper teeth. I felt safe, secure, and respected in this small, quiet, and calm office. I highly recommend The Center for Advanced Dentistry and Dr. Shariff!
