My recent experience with Dr. Bartos has made me never want to return to this practice. I have always taken care of my teeth and have never had any problems or cavities (and I am 37!). At my last routine checkup, Dr. Bartos and the hygenist diagnosed me with three cavities, pockets in my gums, and the beginnings of peridontal disease. They recommended a series of four different appointments to do a deep cleaning, scaling, antibiotic treatment, and the fillings. Since I opted to not take dental insurance this year, my bill was going to be in the neighborhood of $1500. I was upset but I believed them, since it hurt so much and made me bleed when they were ""measuring"" my gums. When I got home my husband argued with me about the plan and suggested that I get a second opinion. I reluctantly agreed and found a dentist that my chiropractor, who I have the utmost respect for, recommended. This dentist said I had a beautiful mouth and nothing to be concerned about! He said I did not have any cavities, just a few indentations that should be watched. They do not need to be filled! He did the same test to measure my gums and it did not hurt at all, and there was no bleeding! When I asked him about this, he said ""anyone can make your gums bleed if they want to."" He seemed genuinely disturbed when he read my chart from Gentle Dentistry. They are clearly just looking to make as much money as possible, and are willing to hurt patients to get it! What a horrible place! Avoid them at all costs!
