    Patterson, Dr. Travis T.
    As painless as possible. Dr. Travis explains everything beforehand and then tells you about what he is doing as he performs the procedure so you know exactly what is going on and what to expect. He is very reassuring and kind. His office staff is amazing and couldn't be more helpful, from the office staff to the dental assistants. Everyone there is kind and caring. I still hate having dental work done, but Dr. Travis and his staff make the procedures bearable.

    I had four teeth extracted before a holiday weekend. I am prone to developing problems--infections due to poor immune function, dry socket, etc--and addressed my concerns with Dr Patterson. He, of course, assured me that all would be fine, and he does seem quite capable and confident. I was optimistic, despite being under-anesthetized even after numerous complaints. He kept telling me I was 'tough' and how 'good' I was doing when I indicated that I was in more pain than I should have been. Over the Fourth of July weekend I developed an aggressive infection and called several times, both asking for antibiotics (I was given two different courses) and to inform him that my pain levels were unreasonably high. I was treated like a drug seeker and told there was nothing the could do. That same evening I went to emergency and was given a non-narcotic lidocaine rinse that helped a good bit: one of several things he definitely could have called in that would have helped without narcotics. He told me to come in the first day they were open for him to check on things, and then was neither in himself that day nor did he remember telling me this--which meant I took off a day of work for nothing.He also told me that he didn't think my problems (the pain where I'd had teeth extracted) were caused by the extractions. Right, that makes sense. I got in to see a different dentist, who informed me that it hurt so much because the infection had healed leaving dry socket in its place. She gave me more mouthwash and I spent the next two weeks in serious pain. Finally, when it became obvious that the healing was not going right and feeling utterly abandoned by the surgeon who should have been caring for me, I got a referral to a different oral surgeon who diagnosed the rare aggressive tumors that had been aggravated by the BONE and TOOTH FRAGMENTS that were left behind in the initial surgery. I had been unable to eat solid food for over two weeks by then and had masses that covered the adjacent teeth. The new surgeon removed them on the spot, gave me adequate pain relief without question and validated my belief that Dr Patterson F***ED UP in more ways than I had known. Left behind bone shards in my mouth? Decided that my complications weren't his fault sight unseen? Treated me like a junkie after leaving me in serious pain--that he caused? Asked me to come in on a day he wasn't in the office and then his front desk staff treated me like trash? And CHARGED ME for it! I hope he gets his license taken away. This man will seriously hurt someone acting like this.

    The real problem I had was with their billing department.  This procedure was for my daughter.  According to her dentist, my daughter needed to have her wisdom teeth removed.  My daughter goes to school at the University of Minnesota.  She is from Virginia, I still live in Virginia.  I sort of had to go along with her dentist's recommendation because I live 1,000 miles away.  

    I don't remember if I assumed that her dentist would provide my insurance information to this office or not, if I did, that would probably be my fault, but never-the-less the morning of the procedure OMSC (this office) called me and told me that they did not have any of my daughter's insurance information.  I hurried up and faxed my cards to their office.  According to this office I provided my insurance information 45 minutes after the procedure had started, but the time stamp on my fax said I sent the information 15 minutes before the procedure was scheduled to start.  I'm not sure who is correct - there is an hour time difference.  But in my opinion, this office should have given me quite a bit more information about the usual and customary charges, and the usual and customary insurance coverages for this procedure - which in case you didn't know, wisdom teeth extractions are rarely covered by any medical or dental insurance.  I did not know that. So that part may have been my fault.  But even still, it would have been very easy for this office to just tell me that over the phone.  They deal with this all the time.  I don't.  I didn't have any idea.

    Anyway, this office never contacted either my medical or dental insurance companies to verify what was covered (or not covered) under my insurance plans.  Nor did they tell me that insurance almost never covers wisdom teeth extractions.   It turned out that my dental insurance covered some of the work, but my medical insurance covered none of it.  Not only that, according to this office, under Minnesota law, a medical office is not required to charge the contracted insurance rates if the specific procedure is not covered; even if the office is supposedly "In Plan", which this office told me they were.  They can charge you whatever they want.  And there is nothing you can do about it later.  That will make a big difference in the total billable amount that the patient is responsible for. 

    Here's my advice.  First, don't do any medical or dental work out of state, unless absolutely necessary.  Laws are different in every state, and Minnesota laws appear to favor the doctors over the patients.  Second, If you need to have your wisdom teeth taken out, and most people eventually will, make sure you understand everything that the doctor is going to do, how much they are going to charge for it, and then verify, long in advance (at least several days), how much, if anything your insurance company(s) are going to cover.  Do not let the doctor's office tell you; "they don't know, until they take x-rays", or make up some other lame excuse.  They know.  They do this all the time.  Otherwise you could get surprised (like I did) with bill for several thousand dollars, that you were not expecting.

    Longauer, Dr. Earl J.
    I've been going to Dr. Longauer for many years now. His staff, particularly Dee, are always really nice. I have no trouble making an appointment. They bill my dental plan for me. I've never had any problem with their billing practices. They do a good job of cleaning my teeth and in the past when I have had the occasional cavity Dr. Longauer fills it without issue.

    Whiston, Patterson & Corcoran
    The staff at the Falls Church office were efficient about scheduling the appointment and also had the foresight to schedule a tentative surgery date for the following day. Dr. Corcoran was very pleasant. After doing an exam he immediately realized our dentist had sent the wrong x-ray. He gave us a very clear assessment of the situation and his recommendation. He treated my17 year old son with respect and explained the pros and cons of local and nitrous oxide versus general anesthesia to help him decide which he preferred. We decided to have the surgery and were able to go ahead the next day because the appointment was already made.
    The surgery was at the Glebe Road office. The receptionist was fine and the dental support staff were very good. One of them asked whether my son had brough any music to listen to, and when she realized he had his iphone but no headphones (no one had suggested this), she got hers from her car for him to borrow. Dr. Corcoran ended up only using local anesthesia but told my son to let him know if he wanted the nitrous to take the edge off. He never did check again about the nitrous, but he did keep a close eye on my son's reactions as he did the procedure and gave him more local anesthesia as needed.
    Dr. Corcoran called our house that evening to make sure he was doing well. I called the office with a question and also received a prompt reply. Dr. Corcoran was friendly and efficient at the followup exam.
    We were asked to pay 50% in advance for the procedure and the office submitted the insurance claim for us.

    I was told that my insurance will cover the extraction. But later they charged me as a surgery and now I have a waiting time on my insurance for same. Therefore only complain is they told me I was convered for extraction under my plan , which I was ..but later changed me for something they can get more $. Doctor was good , its the billing I had issues with.

    Fairfax Oral Surgery
    Oral surgery is definitely not on my fun list but I've always felt very comfortable with the staff and Dr Smith. They listen and treated me very well. Prior to seeing Dr.Smith, I had some very rough, painful dental experiences. Even with the major surgery I endured, I always felt comfortable and was very pleased with the outcome and the advice Dr Smith provided. After my first surgery, I became more and more comfortable and actually go to this practice in a good mood. I follow the doctor's direction to a tee and feel like I've had great healing. Hygiene, ice and eating the right foods really help. He provides all the advice, you just need to follow it. I am no longer afraid of dentists. I'm very thankful that I had the work I needed done and it was performed by Dr. Smith!

    Michael A Colasanto DDS
    I have been a patient of Dr. Colasanto's for 10 years or so. I went to see him first because my general dentist identified serious gum problems (deep pockets) and a friend of mine recommended Dr. C as a good periodontist. Dr. C treated my condition with scaling and eventually a graft. Everything went well and for the past 10 years I have seen Dr. C every year for an annual clean-up/check-up. I appreciate the fact that he does the work himself (not a dental hygienist) so that he can really see for himself the status of my gums. He is also very good at explaining gum issues and remedies (home care primarily). And, last but not least, he doesn't try to prescribe unnecessary procedure.

    Duckett, Dr. Lan
    I think he is very knowledgeable, he is very professional, and he has a gentle manner. He tries to make each visit as painless as possible, explains everything very well, in fact he is a Dental Professor at Howard University. He occasionally has interns as dental assistants so they are learning on the job as they study. I would highly recommend the practice. Also, they are in network with BCBS and they have Saturday hours.

    Northern Virginia Oral Maxillo
    The doctor was unprofessional and rude, saying something like "don't expect to get anything" and almost blaming me for the failed implant "I don't know if the implant was taken care of" (???) Sine this visit another implant done at this office had to be removed less than five years after the date of implanting.
