I have never written a online review. I actually never look at online reviews, I'm jaded, I think they are highly suspect. I usually think that friends and family over stuff the surveys and reviews to skew the ratings. However, I hope someone will read this review and feel confident that I'm neither a friend or a family member. My saga started on Sunday evening after biting into a apple. The bridge involving 3 of my front teeth snapped off. I can't express how devastated I was. I have never viewed my missing teeth since my traumatic injury in 2nd grade (a VERY long time ago). Needless to say traumatized is a understatement. My friend and excellent dentist Nicole Watson recommend Dr. Frank. I called their office at eight in the morning and explained my dilemma. Amazingly they made a two fifty appointment for that afternoon. From the moment I walked in I felt at ease. Very friendly staff greeted me. Jill, Dr. Frank's RDA came to the waiting room and introduced herself and took me back. She made a very embarrassing situation for me comfortable. Dr. Frank came in and introduced himself, he has such a approachable affect that I immediately felt in the right hands, which for me is incredible. I have had horrible experiences with dentists. Dr. Frank and Jill work very well together you could tell it's a working relationship that's built on mutual respect well as competence. Dr. Frank took time to listen to my past Medical history as well as current issue. To figure out the best course of action for me Dr. Frank ordered a few minor procedures and after reviewing x-rays and a gentle examination he discussed a few different courses of action. It was obvious that he had used critical thinking and sought input from Jill. He laid out what he felt would be the best treatment but was willing to discuss other options. In the end he chose the treatment plan that made the most sense to me and was able to speed up the process by including a few steps in my initial visit. He recognized the difficulties for me with my profession and current dental challenges. He said that between himself and Jill he would have a appliance for me to wear by the.next morning at eight . I felt bad because it was already so late in the day. They both reassured me it was not a problem and that it was what they were there for. They made me feel as tho I was a priority even when I was a new dental client. This morning right on time they had a perfect appliance to get me back to seeing my own patients and a suitable stop gap until the permanent implant procedures could be performed I cannot stress enough my gratitude for Dr. Frank and his assistant Jill. They took a terrifying situation and gave me gentle and thorough care. I give them 10 stars and would highly recommend this office to anyone April 25 Davia S.,

In the Preliminary stage

I have been searching for an excellent dentist for some time and based on my first contact with this office, the RDA staff and Dr. Frank, it looks like I have finally found the dentist who can handle just about anything and seems to have some common sense to his practice as well as the most modern technology. I half an hour Dr. Frank had figured out what 3 other dentists could not see. Stay tuned.

Your office is always ready for the sudden...

I awoke in the morning with a tooth ache but felt it might go away on it's own. At late morning it was still there. So I called to make an appointment hoping for the next day. The lady checked my chart, found the tooth and asked if I could come an hour later for and x-ray and consultation. I went in met with Dr. Frank was given the best option of treatment, was given an appointment was on my way solving the problem.

Very Professional staff

On December 26th I was scheduled to have my teeth cleaned. When I got there I was introduced to Desirae whom I hadn't had the pleasure of meeting before. Desirae was very nice and very professional as she went about cleaning my teeth. She would explain in detail each procedure she was doing. All the while I could barely feel any discomfort at all. My visit with Desirae was very productive and I came away feeling very good. Desirae is a very good at what she does and I would gladly refer my friends Dr. Frank and his staff as I have done in the past.

Great cleaning

I saw Brandy and she does a great job! She is gentle and very thorough, I never had any discomfort. She is very nice to talk to and really cares about her patients. Dr. Frank checked my teeth as well, he is very professional and I consider him the best in town. Dr. Frank has been my dentist for over 30 years.
