Having had a very bad experience at another local dentist (Family & Cosmetic Dentistry), I was leery. Seems like my insurance doesn't have a big list to choose from (Guardian DHMO). I was pleasantly surprised. The facility is clean and modern and the staff is friendly (a BIG switch from the other place). I assumed we'd have to schedule a second visit for the cleaning, but they would have done it on the first visit. They had no problem letting me hang around nearby while my daughter was in there (the other place demanded I stay in the waiting room while strangers took my young daughter back....I don't think so!). I came armed with my insurance plan's fee schedule, as the previous facility had charged me $20 for who knows what, when bi-annual check, x-rays, cleaning, sealants, and flouride are all 'no charge'. Well, I didn't even need the fee schedule at Dental Republic, they didn't even try to slip anything in. Very up front and honest. I was fortunate that my daughter (13 years old) did not have any cavities, so she got a clean bill of dental health. I felt very comfortable making an appointment for my 6 year old for next month. \r
The only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is that there was a bit of a wait, both to get called back and to see the doctor. Went ok for a 13 year old, but hopefully will go faster for my 6 year old, as he's not much for waiting.
