Editorial review from Citysearch 1/29/2013

This place is a racket and a scam. Seriously, don't go here. I went for the first time because I just started UC Berkeley and my old dentist (in San Francisco) wasn't covered on my new insurance plan. When I went in the office was beautiful, the people were friendly and they had fancy tea in the waiting room - but I was made suspicious by the fact that when I signed in they gave me a form to sign up for Care Credit - one of those programs that gives zero interest loans to pay for dental work but charges you a fortune if your payments are even a little late. They haven't even looked at my teeth and they're already trying to sign me up for credit? Sketch. I was just there for a cleaning and check up and it had been a year and a half since my last dentist appointment. The super friendly hygienist cleans my teeth and takes some x-rays and pictures. Then the woman from the reception area (who is NOT a dentist) takes me into a room where she shows me pictures of my teeth and tells me I am going to need thousands of dollars worth of work that my insurance wont cover, including tons of fillings and at least one crown. A crown! Mind you I'm 23, and when I went to the dentist a year and a half ago didn't have so much as a cavity. She gives me a long sales pitch about how if I don't get this work now I will need root canals later, and is vehement that I sign up for the Care Credit program. All this, and a dentist hasn't even looked at my teeth! Heck, he hadn't even looked at the pictures yet. I told her I wanted to wait to sign up for anything until a dentist looked at the pictures. She said that he would call me. A week passes, he doesn't call, and I call them to ask if he has looked at the pictures and x-rays. They tell me that he hadn't, and were waiting to see if I would sign up for the payment plan (cause I said I would think about it). So I contacted my old dentist and San Francisco and told him the story and he said to have their office send him the x-rays and he'd look at my teeth, no charge. So I called and ask them to send him the x-rays and they said that will cost $60! I asked if I could just get a written copy of the dentists report, and they said that would also be $60! Anyway, my old dentist said screw it, he'll just take new x-rays. I go see him, he does an exam and takes new x-rays, and guess what? My teeth are perfect. Not so much as a cavity. Seriosuly - screw these people. They should be shut down by the dental board. more

Great Dentist! 10/22/2009

I have been a patient of Dr. Michael for a few years now. He is a caring and conscientious doctor. He recently acquired a practice at Old Oakland Dental and I recommend for everyone to check it out. The office atmosphere is very appealing and relaxing, which exactly what one is looking for at a dental office. Dr. Michael's staff is friendly and attentive, especially his hygienist, Jackie. She does great teeth cleaning and my teeth look shiny and new for days after. All and all- a great dentist, that comes highly recommended by a person whose teeth need constant attention! more

Great experience 8/28/2009

Dr. Michael is one of the best dentists I've ever had. He recently started working at Old Oakland Dental, but I was his patient long before that at a different location. So, when I found out he will be moving to a new area, I moved too. Dr. Michael is very nice and friendly, and he knows whats he is doing. He is very knowledgeable in his field and has a lot of experience. I would DEFINITELY recommend Dr. Michael to anyone. more
